Drug And Alcohol Addiction In Warwick, Rhode Island

Warwick, Rhode Island, like nearby Providence, is fighting high rates of drug and alcohol abuse. In 2020, there were 384 overdose deaths in the state of Rhode Island. In response, Kent County, where Warwick is located, used Narcan 10 times to revive those who overdosed. Overdose deaths in Rhode Island are increasingly related to Opioids. In 2018, 267 overdoses involved Opioids. Fentanyl, a synthetic Opioid that is 80-100 times more powerful than Morphine, was found in 213 overdose deaths for the same year. As a result of such volumes of substance abuse overdoses, Rhode Island is in the top 5 in the nation for overdose rate, and the state continues to struggle with Opioid abuse use disorders.

Expecting Mothers And Opioid Cases In Warwick

Cases of expecting mothers battling opioid abuse and birthing babies craving Opioids remains high statewide. Oftentimes, these cases involve a mother and a prescription opioid dependence that transitions to stronger, illicit opioids. In 2017, there were 11.7 Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome cases per 1,000 hospital births. Babies are often prescribed small doses of the Opioid they are dependent on to avoid painful withdrawal symptoms.

Opioid Withdrawal

Opioids, both prescription and illicit, have a powerful effect on the mind and can send someone into uncomfortable withdrawal. Opioids connect with opioid receptors in the brain, producing euphoria, amongst many other effects. Once someone experiences the “high” they seek, opioid use can be extremely difficult to stop. Withdrawal symptoms typically occur during a cold turkey phase, which is suddenly stopping, or after someone gradually weens themselves off an Opioid.

Withdrawal is best handled with the guidance of a professional where the individual can be supervised. With professional supervision, people receive medication and additional assistance to help reduce the painful symptoms of withdrawal.

The Power Of Detox

Detox is defined as “the process by which an individual is withdrawn from the effects of a psychoactive substance.” Detox for opioid abuse can allow someone to restore their mind and body from opioid dependence and heal symptoms that occur through the different stages of withdrawals. Common medications that are used in opioid detox include clonidine, methadone, and buprenorphine. In addition to opioids, detoxing for substances like cocaine and methamphetamines can have a host of distressing withdrawal symptoms best treated in a facility.
