Treatment Centers for Morphine Addiction

There are many treatments centers across the U.S. that are equipped to treat people addicted to morphine. The best treatment centers for this addiction provide a physician-assisted detoxification program.

Some well-known treatment centers for those addicted to morphine include:

Detox from Morphine

Once someone is addicted to morphine, they need the drug to feel “normal.” Without morphine, users will experience the first symptoms of withdrawal within the first 6-12 hours of their last use.

Withdrawal from morphine feels a lot like withdrawal from heroin. The side effects often include:

  • Depression and anxiety
  • Irritability
  • Abdominal cramps
  • Muscle spasms
  • Chills and sweating
  • Insomnia
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Tremors

Morphine detox is not just uncomfortable — quitting cold turkey can increase inflammation and potentially cause damage to healthy brain cells, according to a study by the Georgetown University Medical Center.

Doctor-assisted detox includes tapering down doses to slowly get the user off the drug. This may be done with morphine itself or a substitute drug with similar effects.

Clonidine, the most commonly used drug for morphine detox, helps reduce anxiety, irritability, cramping and sweating. People who require long-term maintenance of their withdrawals may be prescribed buprenorphine, a mild narcotic that binds with the same opioid receptors as morphine. Buprenorphine may also shorten the time it takes to detox.

    Inpatient Rehabilitation for Morphine Addiction

    To date, the most effective form of treatment for a morphine addiction is an inpatient program, usually lasting around 90 days. One of the benefits of inpatient rehab is that it starts with a safe, medically supervised detox. Inpatient programs allow a recovering addict to focus on treatment without the social and professional pressures of the world outside.

    Ongoing Recovery from Morphine

    Overcoming an addiction to morphine is a lifelong process; while detox may take as little as a few weeks, the commitment to staying clean lasts a lifetime. Many recovering addicts have found great help and accountability through ongoing support groups and individual counseling to stay on a morphine-free path. Staying clean requires lifestyle changes to prevent relapse, which may include cutting negative influences out of close social circles. It is important to build relationships with people who support a clean lifestyle.

    Finding a Treatment Center

    No matter where you live, how old you are, how you first started using morphine or what kind of therapies you’re interested in pursuing, there is a treatment path that can help you. We can help you explore your options and find a treatment center that is right for you. Take the first step toward a morphine-free future now.
