Opioids Medical Detoxification Programs in Louisiana

An opiate is defined as a drug that is derived from opium or contains derivatives of opium. Opiates will produce sedative effects and create a euphoric feeling, that is commonly used to treat varying levels of pain. Opiate addiction is a very dangerous and severe problem, and unfortunately, there is an opiate epidemic sweeping across the United States. Prescription pain medication addiction has become a major problem, but can be effectively treated with the right help. Some of the commonly abused and used opiates include heroin, methadone, morphine, fentanyl, and hydrocodone. An addiction to opiates can start one or two ways; a person can become dependent upon the drugs because of a prescription, or they may become dependent on them because of recreational use. An opiate dependency can lead to an addiction, which is where the physical and psychological problems will continue to develop. Opiate drug treatment within the state of Louisiana will either be medical detox centers or some type of residential drug treatment program.
