About Opiate Detox
Opiate abuse is rising again in America. The influx of prescription narcotic painkillers has made prescription drugs the most deadly in many states. Many so-called pain clinics have been dubbed "pill mills" because of the amount of drugs being given out for even trivial reasons, where these drugs are often either simply abused and/or sold by the people receiving the prescriptions.
In addition, many otherwise well-intentioned people are becoming dependent on the painkillers prescribed to them for common injuries or surgeries. Due to the addictive qualities of opiates these people develop a tolerance after taking the drugs for a period of time, and therefore need more to dull the pain and feel they cannot stop because they fear the withdrawal symptoms if they do stop. Those who do not typically become fully addicted, and as the drugs consume their lives they can wind up on heroin because it is cheaper and stronger.
A good detox center can help someone get through opiate withdrawals in about a week or two, depending on the amount of drugs being taken and how long the person has been on them. However, there are lingering effects of opiate withdrawal such as aches and pains and sleeplessness long after the drug is not being taken. The best detox centers will help provide vital nutritional supplements that help a person's body begin to heal faster and feel better both during and after the initial detoxification is completed.
