Morphine Detox and Rehab Treatment in Nebraska

Morphine is an opioid pain reliever drug and is commonly prescribed to people in hospitals suffering from mild to severe pain. Morphine is commonly misused, and it is a precursor in many different pain medications. Morphine is found in codeine, fentanyl, hydrocodone, hydromorphone, meperidine, and oxycodone. Many of these drugs are prescribed and abused. Morphine creates many different side effects that include drowsiness, increased blood pressure, impaired focus, and depressed respiratory system. Addiction to morphine becomes a life-threatening problem and is dangerous when mixed with other drugs. The combination of morphine and alcohol or with benzodiazepines will increase the likelihood of relapse.

Drugs such as methamphetamine have been one of the biggest issues facing the state. Production of methamphetamine is incredibly easy within the state, because of the farmland causing the ability for labs to remain hidden. Opioids are an issue in the state, but not as predominant as methamphetamine and other drugs. From early 2000 to 2017, opioid-related deaths have increased gradually. Most drug-related deaths in the state in 2017 were opioid-related. The prescribing rate for opioids has been on the decline in the state. In 2017, Nebraska providers wrote 56.6 opioid prescriptions for every 100 persons, per the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

It can start with a prescription that is taken for longer than needed. Or someone who is using a pain medication starts to abuse it for other reasons. There are countless reasons why someone becomes addicted to opioids. The important thing is to get the help you need. Morphine addiction is best treated with medical detox. Medical detox will help with difficult withdrawal symptoms. Along with this, it will ensure the addict is safe and does not experience any medical issues during detox.

Morphine has a long history within the United States. The drug was responsible for the start of the opiate epidemic during and after the Civil War. Hundreds of thousands of Civil War soldiers became addicted to morphine. During the second half of the 19th-century medical professionals were searching for a less addictive alternative to morphine. Unfortunately, during this time heroin was synthesized and became the new wonder drug. Heroin is abused in the state of Nebraska, although not as popular as other drugs such as methamphetamine. Heroin is made directly from morphine, and both drugs produce similar effects. These types of addictions are dangerous and do require the proper type of help and treatment to overcome.
