Though the term opiate most literally refers to chemical derivatives like those found in an opium poppy, opiates today are a much wider class of drugs. Mostly, an opiate refers to any narcotic or opioid-like chemical that acts like morphine or opium. This mostly means chemicals found in painkillers such as hydrocodone or oxycodone. Opiates are generally used to treat extreme pain and can have relaxing effects. They are also very addictive when used improperly.
Using opiate medication without a prescription or using a prescription in a way other than your doctor intended can be considered opiate abuse. Multiple national surveys held that prescription drug abuse (including opiates) is second only to marijuana abuse in the United States. However, the consequences are just as terrible as those that come with illicit street drugs.
Without help, those addicted to opiates can end up in the emergency room or worse. Though coming off opiates can seem like a difficult process, our luxury opiates treatment program at Capo by the Sea can make the journey a little more comfortable.
about our Luxury Opiates Treatment program.
Starting luxury opiates treatment with detox
Luxury opiates treatment often starts with detox. While many struggling with addiction could see detox as a frightening experience, the truth is that it doesn’t have to be. Treatment shouldn’t be avoided just for fear of detox. In our luxury opiates treatment program, our healthcare experts have a keen understanding of detox procedures. Our mission at Capo by the Sea is to make detox as painless, comfortable, and safe as possible.
Common withdrawal symptoms during luxury opiates treatment
If you’ve been on medications such as Percocet, Lortab, Vicodin, or OxyContin for a long time, it’s not unusual to experience withdrawal symptoms during detox. Common withdrawal symptoms include fatigue, tremors, or loss of appetite. There can also be psychological symptoms as well, all of which begin after getting off the substance in question.
Fortunately, Capo by the Sea’s luxury opiates treatment track includes medical assistance during detox when necessary to help with some of the harsher withdrawal symptoms. Our guests will also be treated to luxury accommodations, gourmet food, and compassionate treatment to ease them through this process.
Luxury opiates treatment can help with dependence
Our luxury opiates treatment program addresses our clients’s dependence on opiates. Physical dependence is the body’s adaptations to chronic drug use, and is slightly different than addiction. Addiction includes physical dependence, but is distinguished by psychological symptoms as well. This can lead to negative behaviors like compulsive drug-seeking and use despite devastating consequences.
Capo by the Sea is here to help our residents overcome both sides of addiction, and to get their lives back on track. Call us today at 888-529-2114.
