Top Opiate Addiction Treatment & Detoxby baladmin | November 30, 2012
Opiate and opioid drugs are intensely addictive, highly dangerous and can be potentially fatal. The opioid family includes the naturally occurring opiates morphine and codeine, as well as their synthetic and semi-synthetic derivatives.
These include heroin, methadone and a variety of prescription pain medications.
Balboa Horizons’ clinical team is highly trained to deal with the challenges involved with opioid addiction and treatment. A controlled and medically supervised detoxification will be necessary and the intensity of withdrawal will depend on the duration and amount of opioid use. However, detoxification is not a complete solution. Most addicts will eventually resume using opioids unless they receive further help.
