Opioids Medical Detoxification Programs in Massachusetts

What are the opioids addiction warning signs?

Opioid addiction is a result of opioid drug abuse. It includes physical and psychological dependence on the drug. Addiction warning signs are:

  • Tolerance to opioids
  • Bloodshot eyes
  • Paranoia
  • Euphoria
  • Mood swings
  • Nervousness
  • Irritability

There is a justified concern for the on-going abuse and misuse of prescription opiates within the United States. There is a combination of individuals who abuse opiates recreationally, and pain patients becoming addicted to these drugs because of a prescription. Commonly abused opiates include heroin, methadone, Demerol, hydrocodone, codeine, morphine, and fentanyl. Whether a person is abusing these drugs recreationally or is dependent on them because of a prescription, they must find the proper help and treatment. Within the state of Massachusetts are different types of inpatient and outpatient drug treatment centers and programs. Medical detox will be the first step to assist with the painful withdrawal symptom. After detox, an addict should attend a residential drug rehabilitation program to address the underlying issues associated with the addiction. Opiate addiction and abuse are a dangerous problem, and there will be a continuing risk for overdose if the person does not get the right help.
