There are now dozens of drugs on the market these days that have been derived from opium poppy seeds or synthesized in labs to produce opiates. These drugs can have potent effects, treating some of the worst pain symptoms and helping people recover from surgery or other major medical procedures. While these drugs can help us get through tough times dealing with problems such as cancer and chronic pain, we also must remain aware of the highly addictive nature of opiates and what effects opiate addiction can have.
It can be tough but necessary to admit to a dependency on opiates. However, with Rockland Recovery’s opiate addiction treatment centers in Massachusetts, people can find the support and encouragement they may need to face their addiction. Our team is ready to help you or someone you care about with our opiate addiction treatment program. But, most importantly, is to know when it’s time to find help for opiate addiction.
When Is it Time to Find Help?
Because opiates are often used to treat medical conditions and pain, it can be difficult to know whether or not someone’s opiate use has become a problem. Opioid or opiate use disorder can be diagnosed by a doctor because signs and symptoms might not be obvious right away. Some of the signs that indicate you or a loved one may need to contact Rockland Recovery for help include:
- Trouble controlling opiate use
- Using opiates outside of the scope of prescription
- Intense cravings
- Changes in sleep habits and increased daytime drowsiness
- Weight loss and changes in exercise routines
- Decreased libido
- Spending less time with family and friends, withdrawal from social life
- Financial struggles
- Stealing from family, friends, or colleagues
Although these symptoms might make individuals feel guilt and shame, it is important to keep in mind that addiction is a disease, not a choice or lack of willpower. Our Rockland Recovery team wants you or anyone else addicted to opiates to know that we treat each person in recovery with respect.
