Opiate Detox, Abuse and Treatment

Opiate Detox, Abuse and Treatment in NJ

The term “opiate” can refer to any drug that is made by the opium (or poppy) plant. These drugs, the most common of which are heroin, morphine, codeine, and Oxycontin, produce similar effects and are highly addictive. As a result, dependency on these drugs is recognized as a psychological disorder that is best treated through medically assisted detox and treatment. Opiate abuse is incredibly dangerous to an individual’s well-being.  According the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), death by opiates, specifically heroin, is becoming increasingly more common nationwide. In NJ, opiate abuse is even more prevalent with yearly death tolls more than tripling the country’s average. Because opiates are habit-forming drugs, detox and treatment are necessary in order to combat symptoms of withdrawal and prevent relapse. Opiate detox is the first step in breaking the cycle of abuse, but should always followed by continued medication and psychological services.

Detox Treatment in NJ Following Opiate Abuse

Opiate detox treatment following  abuse involves abstaining from use of the opiate in order to remove the substance from the body. Because withdrawal symptoms are often difficult to withstand, medically facilitated detox treatment is recommended for those suffering from opiate abuse. A doctor will often prescribe medications, such as clonidine and buprenorphine, which will help withdrawal symptoms to subside. In NJ, facilities, such as GenPsych, PC, now offer ambulatory options for detox treatment. The Ambulatory Detox program at GenPsych will provide transportation and care for those in need of detox treatment in NJ following opiate abuse.

Treatment in NJ for Opiate Abuse following Detox

Opiate detox treatment alone has not been shown to prevent  abuse relapse. Therefore, it is important to continue care following detox. Opiate treatment options often consist of both medicinal and behavioral care. Through both medication and the support of trained professionals, an individual can reduce their chances of relapse and learn to live a drug-free life. Treatment for opiate abuse following detox is crucial in the recovery process.
