Opioids are often prescribed to treat moderate to severe pain. Sometimes, there is a known cause for the pain such as with degenerative disc disease or a car accident injury. However, there are other times that people will even use these drugs after buying them from a drug dealer to cope with emotional pain. No matter why you started using opioids, if you have an opioid addiction, please reach out to our team, here at Blue Hills Recovery Center, to get into an addiction treatment program.
Signs of Opioid Addiction
There are many signs that someone has an opioid addiction such as:
- Can’t stop using the drug even when they try
- Mood swings
- Lying to loved ones about drug use
- Stealing from stores or loved ones, so they can get money to buy drugs
- Using bill money or savings to buy opioids
- Using more drugs than just what they are prescribed
If you or someone you know is experiencing any of these opioid addiction symptoms, please reach out to our Blue Hills Recovery Center team to treat the addiction.
One of the opioids that you might be addicted to is methadone. It is a drug that blocks pain receptors. Oftentimes, this drug is prescribed to treat opioid dependence. The problem is that it is still addictive, as well. If you have a methadone addiction, you may find yourself getting irritable when you need to or try to stop taking it. If that is the case, our team can help you to overcome the addiction.
Another opioid that people commonly become addicted to is dilaudid. It is a drug that is approximately 6-9 times stronger than morphine. When someone uses dilaudid, their brain feels a high that blocks out pain. After the user realizes how well it gets rid of their pain, they may become dependent on or even addicted to the drug. Some users will develop an addiction after using the drug only a few times. If you have an addiction to this drug, our Blue Hills Recovery team can help to treat it.
Some people have an addiction to Fentanyl. It is one of the most potent drugs available. Oftentimes, it is prescribed to people who have tried all other pain medications. Either those medications didn’t work or they don’t work any longer. With the significant relief of pain this drug can provide, it has a high addictive potential. If you or someone you know is using this drug and can’t stop on your own, don’t feel alone. Our treatment center team can help you to get clean and start on your treatment program.
