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. These symptoms will worsen until they peak between 36-72 hours after the last dose.

Withdrawal from Morphine feels a lot like withdrawal from Heroin. The symptoms often include:

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

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, one of the most commonly used drugs 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. This is known as medication-assisted treatment (MAT). 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 potential benefits of inpatient rehab is that it typically 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. Contact a treatment provider today to discuss available treatment options. Take the first step toward a Morphine-free future now.
