Importance of Painkiller Detox

The importance of detox for painkiller addiction

For those who need them in order to experience alleviation from pain, prescription painkillers can be a life-saving option for care when daily functioning is disrupted by pain caused by medical conditions, injury, or following a surgery. These medications, which are classified as opioids, can only be prescribed by a physician, and often come with a warning that they can be habit-forming if the administration directions are not followed. When an individual does not follow through on his or her doctor’s recommendations for taking a prescription painkiller, a variety of detriments may begin to unfold.

Additionally, there are individuals who consume prescription pain medications for non-medical reasons. Frequently done so to achieve a high that includes feelings of euphoria, relaxation, and detachment from one’s surroundings, abusing prescription painkillers can bring about similar adversities as those experienced by individuals who take these drugs outside of the prescribed guidelines. When the misuse of painkillers becomes ongoing without there being a medical need, an addiction is likely to develop, and professional care from a quality prescription painkiller addiction treatment center may be warranted in order to effectively cease this form of substance abuse.

When care is needed to end an addiction to painkillers, one should consider partaking in care at a painkiller abuse treatment center that includes detoxification services, or detox. This level of care allows a person to rid his or her body of harmful substances, like pain medications, so that the discomfort of withdrawal is diminished and so that other aspects of recovery can be focused on.

When an individual first begins to misuse a prescription painkiller, that person does not assume that he or she will experience the pangs of addiction. Therefore when an individual attempts to stop using these types of medications after having abused them for a period of time, the withdrawal symptoms that manifest can be surprising.

Because prescription pain medications can cause an individual to develop a tolerance to them, of which then requires him or her to consume more of the substance(s) of choice in order to achieve the desired effect, withdrawal is likely to occur in the event the medication misuse stops. A process that can include muscle and bone pain, restlessness, irritability, and powerful cravings for more painkillers, prescription pain medications can trigger a rather uncomfortable and painful withdrawal that can make achieving sobriety all but impossible to do on one’s own, without the support and supervision of a professional addiction treatment center for painkillers.

However, by seeking appropriate care that includes detox, a person can experience relief from withdrawal and begin to develop the skills needed to live a recovered life.

If a person fails to receive care that includes detox to overcome a prescription painkiller addiction, that individual is likely to continue abusing these substances. Additionally, if a person seeks care, but does not receive detox, there is a high risk for relapse. For these reasons, and more, it is imperative that a person who is addicted to prescription pain medications receive detox in addition to other types of therapeutic treatment in order to break free from this potentially lethal form of chemical dependency.

Not only will a person’s withdrawal symptoms be alleviated, but detox will help an individual to be able to place all of his or her attention on becoming well again. Since a prescription painkiller addiction can cause a person to develop priorities that surround substance abuse, detox can help an individual develop the clarity of mind needed to shift his or her priorities towards recovery and the skills needed to refrain from the use of these medications once more.
