Opioids Medical Detoxification Programs in North Carolina

What are the opiates addiction warning signs?

Opiates cover a huge variety of drugs from legal drugs such as morphine, to illegal drugs such as heroin. Warning signs of addiction for opiates include:

  • Itchy and flushed skin
  • Slowed and shallow breathing
  • Vomiting
  • Constipation
  • Weight loss
  • Hallucinations
  • Lightheadednessv

Regardless of how severe an opiate addiction may be; it is important to get the right type of help. Opiates such as heroin, morphine, methadone, fentanyl, hydrocodone, codeine, or demerol are all highly addictive when they are abused or misused in any way. Many of the opiate addiction problems within the United States start with a prescription to the drug, that was given to manage some level of pain. The average person can take the medication as-needed and will not become dependent on it. Because opiates create such a strong euphoric effect, this can become habit forming, and a user can develop a tolerance to the drug quicker. A drug tolerance will lead to a dependency, which will then cause an addiction to form. Anyone in the state of North Carolina who is struggling with an opiate addiction can access certain types of drug and alcohol treatment centers and programs. More importantly, medically supervised withdrawal services are available, followed by residential drug treatment.
