Morphine is a prescription drug used to treat moderate to severe pain. It acts upon specific receptors in the brain and spinal cord to decrease the feeling of pain and to reduce the emotional response to pain. Because it numbs the pain, developing an addiction is not very hard.
The signs of a misuse can be easily observed: going through a morphine prescription too quickly (and needing refills before they are due), "Doctor shopping," which is seeing several different healthcare providers to obtain numerous morphine prescriptions, or switching from one provider to another and repeated reports of losing a prescription, having a prescription stolen, or needing a prescription early to go on vacation. These are just some of the signs but family members and friends should be aware of them and act when the early signs show up.
Of course, each person has a different reaction when confronted with the drug addiction of someone close to him or her. It is really important to stand your ground and seek specialized help. It is of no use to be in denial or to collapse in front of such a problem. Although it is not to be treated lightly, morphine addiction can be cured. This is where we come in. We can help you since we provide over 43 detoxification centers in Florida. We also have in our directory around 290 Florida rehabilitation treatments. Of these, over 110 are residential rehab centers. Although an outpatient treatment is an option, it is always preferable to attend an inpatient center when possible. If you call us, we can discuss the different possibilities at your disposal.
Even though we are not a detox or drug rehab, we are here to assess your needs and help you find a morphine detox or morphine rehab in Florida or elsewhere in the United States.
