Opioid Treatment

Opioids are among the leading public health crisis facing the United States. These drugs are responsible for tens of thousands of American deaths each year. The National Institute on Drug Abuse reports that of the 67,367 fatal drug overdoses in 2018, 46,802 were directly attributable to opioids.

On their way to sending people to an early grave, opioid addiction leaves users in an endless cycle of relapse and withdrawal from which they can only recover through comprehensive treatment. iRecovery deploys fully complete telemedicine treatment resources for individuals struggling with opioid addiction. Contact us today at 855-770-0581 to begin your journey back to a healthy and fulfilling life free from opioid dependency.

The path to recovery from opioid addiction starts with comprehensive treatment that addresses the physical, behavioral and lifestyle aspects of the disease. Patients must align their medical health with their lifestyle and mental wellness to achieve fully complete recovery. This means finding a treatment program that accommodates the holistic needs of every patient.
The descent into opioid addiction looks different for everyone. Some start by taking prescription painkillers administered by their doctor for a legitimate pain issue. Others start by taking them out of curiosity and get more than they bargained for. No matter what route toward opioid addiction is taken, it all ends up leading to a variety of devastating long-term effects, including but not limited to:

  • Impaired Coordination
  • Fatigue and Drowsiness
  • Shallow or Slow Breathing Rate
  • Nausea, Vomiting
  • Constipation
  • Physical Agitation
  • Poor Decision Making
  • Abandonment of Responsibilities
  • Impaired Coordination
  • Fatigue and Drowsiness
  • Shallow or Slow Breathing Rate
  • Nausea, Vomiting
  • Constipation
  • Physical Agitation
  • Poor Decision Making
If you or someone you care about is experiencing these or any other serious symptoms related to opioid use disorder, get help now before the situation reaches potentially deadly heights.
As much as society may think addiction is intentional, many people end up getting unwillingly addicted to opioids. These drugs ensnare all types of people, from the student-athlete who played through pain to get the scholarship to the construction worker who fell off the ladder and needed to keep working to feed his family and everyone in between. Opioids function by binding to pleasure receptors in the brain and completely hijacking your neuro-chemistry. It is best to seek professional treatment for opioid addiction when:

  • You Start Experiencing Serious Withdrawal Symptoms
  • You Start Watching the Clock between Doses
  • You Start Doctor Shopping to Fill Your Prescriptions
  • You Start Engaging in Increasingly High-Risk Behavior to Procure Drugs
  • You Start Lying or Fighting with Your Friends of Family
  • You Need Higher Doses at More Frequent Intervals to experience the Same Effects

If you are a loved one of an opioid abuser, do not be surprised if they resort to extreme measures to try to get their next fix. Their behavior may become violent or manipulative while they are using drugs.

It is highly recommended that patients who are experiencing opioid withdrawal get help from an experienced and qualified medical professional. Depending upon the scope and severity of the person’s abuse, withdrawal can be life-threatening and include symptoms such as:

  • Body Aches
  • Sweating
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Fever
  • Shaking
  • Accelerated Heartbeat
  • Rapid Breathing
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Hallucinations
  • Seizures
  • Sleep Disorder
Medical detoxification allows patients to safely rebalance their brain chemistry and health from withdrawal in a safe and comfortable environment with the assistance of trained physicians and nurses.
Though not meant to be a substitute for any other element of care, the medication buprenorphine (Suboxone) helps to curtail cravings and withdrawal symptoms. This medication works by binding to opioid receptors in the brain the same way dangerous opioids do to make cravings less severe until patients are able to gently taper off.
Rehabilitation helps patients to address the psychological and lifestyle aspects of their addiction, including triggers, origins and sustaining factors contributing to your addiction. iRecovery offers a full suite of opioid rehabilitation services, including family involvement, group therapy, one-on-one counseling sessions and cognitive behavioral therapy to help patients reclaim their strength, confidence and independence from opioids.

Part of every treatment program should be ensuring that patients have the tools they need to continue their recovery even after their program ends. iRecovery offers customized aftercare plans that include referral to support-groups and addiction-trained therapists on our platform and full access to world- class behavioral health professionals. We understand the hassles and rigors that you encounter when trying to enter an opioid treatment program, which is why we are pleased to bring the recovery experience to you through telemedicine. Contact the iRecovery team today at 855-770-0581 to start the healing process and begin living an opioid-free life.
