Opiate Abuse

Your understanding of opiate abuse is what will help you to overcome your addiction. Long-term opiate abuse can disrupt your central nervous system. This means that using opiates for a long time, the nerve cells in the brain, which produce endogenous opiates, do not work properly anymore. Your body may stop producing endorphins because it has opiates to replace them. This is when an opiate addiction can and will form because you now need the opiates to function every day. Opiate abuse is when you use the opiates for long periods of time and cannot function without them anymore.

ince opiate abuse does lead to addiction, if you were to suddenly stop abusing opiates, you would go through withdrawal. Having an understanding of opiate addiction and what it can do to your body will help you reach lasting sobriety. Knowledge of your drug is almost as important as seeking help for your abuse problem. If you would like to get help for your opiate addiction, give us a call at Cliffside Malibu. You can reach us at (424) 320-3061.

The Backbone of Opiate Abuse

One of the major health concerns in the United States is opiate abuse. In fact, billions of dollars are spent on effective opiate addiction treatments. Many families and crime issues are blamed on opiate abuse. Heroin, one of the drugs derived from opiates, is stated as being one of the opiates people are most addicted to. Interestingly, in the past, doctors and researchers did not have a treatment available for people addicted to opiates because it was believed that an inherited gene caused opiate addiction. These days, there are many opiate abuse treatments that are effective. There are treatments that will help you obtain sobriety. Today, if you are suffering from opiate abuse, there is help out there for you.

The Repercussions That Follow

Many repercussions follow opiate abuse, one being that many more people than necessary deal with opiates on a daily basis. Medical staffs in the past did not think it was important to find a treatment for opiate addicts. However, the opiate abuse today would not be as bad had they developed treatments for it in the past. In addition, another repercussion that followed opiate abuse in the past is that opiate abusers had no hope for recovery. However, these repercussions have changed, as now there are a variety of successful opiate addiction treatment options. No longer will you be shut out of society for being addicted to opiates; no longer will you be labeled as an opiate abuser. You can now have the hope that comes with effective opiate treatments.
