Opioids Detoxification Programs in Puerto Rico

Can a drug test detect opioids?

Yes, opioids can be tested using drug tests. There are different drug tests that can be conducted to test for opioids such as blood tests, urine tests, and saliva tests. Depending upon whether you are a frequent or non-frequent user, each drug test will have a different detection time.

Opiate abuse and addiction will cause significant physical and mental-health problems for the addict, and not to mention the stress on the family. The long-term use with any type of opiate will only make it more difficult to stop taking the drug. Opiates cause severe and painful withdrawal symptoms. These withdrawal pains must be managed with the help of a medical detox, where other medications are given to alleviate withdrawal pains. Drug treatment services throughout Puerto Rico include both residential and outpatient centers, and the necessary medically supervised detox programs to help opiate users. A person can become addicted to opiates through illicit drugs such as cocaine, or through pharmaceutical opiates such as fentanyl, morphine, codeine, hydrocodone, or methadone. Regardless of how severe the opiate addiction may be; it is important to reach out to local resources, and find the right type of help and support.
