Opium Drug Addiction

Opium addiction is a serious problem and is a highly addictive narcotic. There are very few medicinal purposes for which Opium is approved and there are other, less addictive drugs that can be prescribed for almost every problem. Opium can be converted into Heroin, increasing its potency and therefore, increasing the risk that an Opium user will experience a deadly overdose. Opium is obtained by cutting up the unripe capsules belonging to Papaver somniferum.

How do I know if I'm addicted?

Since there are very few instances in which a doctor would prescribe this highly addictive drug, it is normally obtained through illegal means and is used for no legitimate medical purpose. If you use Opium even once and find that you are unable to quit thinking about taking or actually taking Opium, a professional rehabilitation center should be contacted immediately.

There is a Way Out

Meridian Treatment Solutions offers numerous programs that can help anyone overcome their addiction to Opium. Whether you are just beginning to consume Opium or if you have been taking the drug for an extended period of time, Meridian Treatment Solutions will be able to identify the program that will best help you in your fight to become and remain sober.

What Is the Treatment For Opium Addiction?

When you begin an Opium treatment program with Meridian Treatment Solutions you will have to go through an initial detoxification process that can often be incredibly uncomfortable, even deadly. With the qualified team of professionals that you will have by your side, you will be able to ride out the withdrawal symptoms such as insomnia, nausea, anxiety, and other uncomfortable symptoms of the Opium leaving your body. The staff will be able to make sure that you are safely being weaned off of the Opium and they will be able to give you alternative medications so that you can finish the detoxification process with as little pain as possible.

When you no longer need constant supervision and drug alternatives, you can begin to heal with the daily activities suggested for you. Yoga, meditation, group therapy, as well as individual counseling are a few examples of the activities that have been designed to help you on your journey to sobriety. When you only heal the body you are only healing one part of the addiction. An addiction to Opium can be psychological as well as physiological. When you heal the mind and spirit as well as the body, you are able to get to the root of the addiction instead of just treating the symptom.

With the stress relieving techniques that you will be taught through the Meridian Treatment Solutions Opium addiction program you will be able to transition back to your old life without worrying about slipping back into your former Opium habit. When you learn to replace the negative behavior with a positive means of coping, you greatly increase the chances of never having to enter a drug treatment facility again.
