Some Statistics on opiate addiction

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, more than 115 people in the U.S. die after overdosing on opiates every day.
In 2016, there were 2,798 opioid-related overdose deaths in Florida. This represents a rate of 14.4 deaths per 100,000 people, which is a higher prevalence than the 13.3 deaths per 100,000 people nationwide.
In Alabama, there were 343 opioid-related deaths in 2016. This makes for a rate of 7.5 deaths per 100,000 people.

Opiates vs. Opioids

Some drugs blend an opiate with an over-the-counter medicine such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen. These “partial synthetics” are called opioids.
Like opiates, opioids come in many forms. Common opioids include Vicodin, OxyContin, and Percocet.
While it might seem like opioids are less dangerous than opiates, this is not true. Some who have died from opioid overdose actually die from the liver toxicity in the blended over-the-counter medicine.

Opiates are powerful painkillers that come from the opium poppy. They come in varying strengths and formulas. Some provide instant relief and are short-acting while others are meant for longer-term use.
All opiate painkillers are highly addictive. They produce tolerance and physical dependency and create severe withdrawal symptoms. The opiates of today are even more powerful than those created long ago, which makes opiate addiction far more prevalent today than in the past.

the different Kinds of Opiates

Opiates are drugs that contain morphine. Morphine occurs naturally in the opium poppy, but it can also be created artificially.
Another opiate painkiller is codeine, which was discovered in 1832 but has gone on to become the most commonly prescribed drug in the world. Other powerful opiates include Fentanyl and Dilaudid. Opiates come in tablet, suppository, liquid, patch, and injectable form.
Not all opiates are legal. Heroin, for example, come from the opium poppy and is more powerful and addictive than morphine.

Benefits of our Panama city beach Opiate Rehab Center

Opiates can produce withdrawal symptoms just hours after the last dose, and these symptoms can last for up to weeks.
Opiate withdrawal symptoms include:
– Nausea
– Muscle cramping
– Depression
– Agitation
– Anxiety
– Strong cravings for opiates
While opiate withdrawal may not be life-threatening, withdrawal symptoms are often uncomfortable enough that relapse is likely.
Opiate addiction is a chronic disease, with both physical and psychological side effects and symptoms. However, detox, therapy, and a qualified Opiate Rehab Center help to make relapse less likely.
Comprehensive treatment starts with medical detox. Detox is a relatively short period of time when the addictive drug is leaving the body. Then it’s an opiate rehab center, which can feature professional counseling, patient education, family and individual therapy, and ongoing support.
