Drug Rehab in Orange County

Can I quit using drugs without going to drug rehab in Orange County?

Very few people are able to shed a serious addiction without professional guidance. Opiates and alcohol are among the most habit-forming substances in the world, and they change the brain in a way that makes it virtually impossible to stop using without medical intervention and compassionate counseling. When done with careful medical supervision, withdrawal from OxyContin, Vicodin, and other opiate painkillers is a whole lot easier than trying to go 'cold turkey' on your own. It's safer, too. Studies show again and again that people who try to stop using drugs without formal rehab services go back to using within a short period of time. If you truly wish to stop using drugs and get on with the rest of your life in a sane and sober fashion, drug rehab in Orange County or wherever you are is truly your best bet.

What is withdrawal like?

The severity of withdrawal symptoms you may experience depend on the sort of drug or drugs you've been taking. Your personal physiology matters, as well. Symptoms of opiate withdrawal typically begin within 24 hours of the last dose and include anxiety, restlessness, and muscle aches. Teary eyes, runny nose, insomnia, and excessive sweating are also common symptoms of opioid withdrawal. As withdrawal progresses, diarrhea, nausea, rapid heartbeat, and uncontrollable dry heaves may occur. As time goes on, withdrawal symptoms worsen to the point that the patient will do anything to feel better. This is when someone trying to quit without help goes back to using. It's also the right time to speak with someone at a skilled drug rehab in Orange County. Modern medical interventions make the withdrawal process easier to bear. If you hesitate to quit because you are worried about the agony of drug withdrawal, take heart. Nobody at rehab is going to judge you for your drug use. The only shame is if you know that help is readily available but don't make the call.

Is opiate withdrawal dangerous?

It can be. You see, the longer a person takes OxyContin, Vicodin, morphine, or another opioid medication, the more accustomed their body and brain are to the presence of the drug. Real brain changes occur with addiction, and reversing these changes takes time. Persons who have weak hearts, high blood pressure, or other underlying medical conditions may be especially susceptible to the rigors of opiate drug withdrawal. In fact, heart attacks and strokes can happen to anyone who tries to “go cold turkey” all by themselves. In a compassionate drug rehab in Orange County setting, medical support staff it on hand at all times to help the rehab guest make it through withdrawal safely and surely.
