Addiction to prescription drugs is a life-threatening condition. Withdrawal symptoms can be deadly. Rehab provides a safe place for prescription drug detox in MA.
Anytime that a patient uses prescription medication in a way not prescribed by a doctor, it’s drug abuse. If you or a loved one are suffering from addiction to a prescription drug, know that you are not alone. In 2019, the National Survey on Drug Use and Health estimated that almost 1.5 million adults suffered from pain reliever abuse disorder. Painkillers, stimulants, and sedatives are the most abused substances besides marijuana and alcohol. An estimated 52 million people have taken prescription drugs for a nonmedical reason at least once. Prescription drugs are a scientific miracle, designed to make patients’ lives easier. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean that they don’t also cause harm. The perception that any drug prescribed by a medical professional is always safe to use, even incorrectly, perpetuates the cycle of abuse. Though they are legal, it does not make them any less addictive.
What is Opioid Addiction?
Opioids are powerful drugs that induce pleasure and provide pain relief. Physicians sometimes prescribe opioids legitimately to control severe or ongoing pain when less addictive painkillers don’t provide adequate relief.
Unfortunately, people can become addicted to opioids even when they take them under a doctor’s supervision. Sometimes, people develop an opioid addiction after taking unprescribed opioids recreationally or taking someone else’s medication to relieve pain. Some people are more prone to opioid addiction than others, and it’s unknown why certain people are at increased risk.
Signs of opioid addiction include:
- Difficulty stopping or cutting down opioid use
- Regularly taking more than the prescribed dose
- Mental health problems, such as anxiety and depression
- Altered breathing rate
- Irritability and mood swings
- Difficulty making decisions and impaired judgment
The symptoms of opioid dependency and addiction can make it difficult to fulfill your work and family responsibilities. Many people struggling with opioid addiction experience a negative impact on their careers or relationships. If you’re worried about your opioid use or notice any of these symptoms, it’s time to seek expert intervention at an opioid detox facility in MA like Mayflower Opioid Detox.
When you stop taking opioid drugs, it will take your body time to adjust. During the adjustment period, you may experience some unpleasant symptoms of opioid withdrawal. These include:
- Trouble sleeping
- Digestive problems, including vomiting and diarrhea
- Muscle pain

- Excessive yawning
Opioid withdrawal can be life-threatening and can make it even harder to stop taking the drugs. Fortunately, specialist detox centers like Mayflower Opioid Detox in MA can help you manage the discomfort of opioid withdrawal with medication and psychological support and give you the best possible chance of achieving sobriety.
