Duffy’s provides in-house detoxification services for a smooth transition into residential care.

The Importance of Opioid Detox

The importance of detox for opioid addiction

It is not an overstatement to note that opioid addiction can be a devastating experience, especially in Northern California. Abusing and becoming dependent upon heroin, morphine, prescription painkillers, or other opioids can expose a person to a wide range of damage, including physical, psychological, emotional, and social harm. When a person becomes addicted to an opioid, which is known clinically as developing an opioid use disorder, he or she will cease having control over important aspects of life including the amount and frequency of his or her opioid abuse. As tolerance develops, addicted individuals will need to take increasingly larger or more potent amounts of the opioids upon which he or she has become addicted, which will increase the risk of lasting damage and complicate the effort to escape the compulsion to abuse these powerful substances.

One of the many dangerous aspects of an opioid use disorder is the extreme difficulty that a person can encounter when attempting to stop or even significantly reduce his or her opioid abuse. Whether a person has become dependent upon illicit opioids such as heroin or opium, or has become addicted to prescription opioids such as oxycodone or hydrocodone, the body can quickly adapt to the presence of these substances. When an opioid-dependent individual does not or cannot ingest the drugs that his or her body craves, he or she can quickly begin to experience painful withdrawal symptoms, which can range from watery eyes and runny nose to abdominal cramping, muscle and bone pain, nausea, and psychological distress. When a person attempts to end his or her opioid abuse without getting professional treatment at a detox treatment center for opioid and opiate abuse, the intensity of these withdrawal symptoms, and the knowledge that they can be eliminated by relapsing into opioid abuse, can derail even the most dedicated efforts to escape the clutches of opioid use disorder.

Fortunately, professional assistance exists that can drastically reduce the distress of withdrawal and significantly increase the individual’s chances of successfully ridding his or her body of opioids. Known as detoxification, or detox, this process can help individuals take an essential first step toward lifelong recovery from opioid addiction.

Benefits of Opioid Detox

Benefits of an opioid detox program in Northern California

When a person enters detox for opioid addiction, he or she will have many advantages, including diminished pain, enhanced safety, and the presence of experienced and compassionate professionals. The following are among the many specific benefits that a person can receive when he or she participates in detoxification at a reputable licensed program:

  • Physical safety: In an effective opioid detox program, professional monitoring ensures that participants are not endangered by the physical effects of withdrawal or by accidental or intentional injury that can result from psychological distress.
  • Pain management: Many Northern California detox programs for opioids provide medications or other interventions that are designed to minimize painful withdrawal symptoms and/or help patients manage their pain in a healthy and productive manner.
  • Removal of relapse risk: When a person attempts to withdraw from opioids on his or her own, the effort can be undercut by the knowledge that any pain can be ended simply by ingesting an opioid. In an opioid-free detox environment, this risk is removed.
  • Therapeutic support: Many opioid detox programs also feature a therapeutic component. For example, individuals may be able to begin participating in the therapeutic elements of residential rehab while still in detox.
  • Smooth transitions: When a person completes opioid detox, he or she can typically transfer directly into residential or inpatient care. The ability to make a smooth and efficient transition to the next phase of treatment eliminates relapse risk, ensures continuity of care, and improves an individual’s chances of having a successful treatment experience.

It is no secret that overcoming an addiction to opioids can be a challenging effort. However, many people may be prevented from even starting the process of seeking treatment at a detox center due to fears or concerns about the withdrawal experience. If you or someone that you care about has been struggling with an opioid use disorder, do not be dissuaded by the belief that you are not strong enough to get through withdrawal. At an effective detox program for opioid addiction, individuals receive the support and supervision that empowers them to make this essential first step on their path to lifelong recovery. Detox has worked for thousands of others who were once trapped in the prison of opioid addiction, and the process can work for you, too.
