Opioids are a class of drugs that include prescription pain medicines (such as oxycodone, hydrocodone, morphine, and codeine), highly potent synthetic opioids like fentanyl, and illegal drugs like heroin. These powerful drugs interact with special opioid receptors in the brain to help alleviate pain and provide the user with feelings of euphoria. 1 Opioid use can cause adverse side effects such as breathing difficulties and decreased heart rate, and an overdose can quickly lead to coma and death. 2
Opioids are highly addictive drugs that change the brain in ways that hinder self-control and interfere with one’s ability to resist the urge to use. 3 Anyone who uses opioids can become addicted, and even the correct use of prescription opioids under the direction of a healthcare provider can result in dependency or addiction.
Indiana is among the states hardest hit by the current opioid epidemic. Since 2003, the cumulative economic damages of opioid addiction have cost the state more than $43 billion. 4 Unfortunately, the true cost of opioid addiction in Indiana cannot be measured in dollars.
In 2018, there were 1,104 drug overdose deaths in Indiana involving opioids. 5 This included 713 deaths that involved synthetic opioids (such as fentanyl), 370 prescription opioid-involved deaths, and 311 overdose deaths related to heroin use. Indiana has also seen a dramatic increase in the number of non-fatal emergency department visits related to opioid overdose, from 1,856 in 2011 to 5,825 in 2018. 6 Opioid abuse also contributes to the spread of infectious diseases in Indiana; nearly 1 in 5 females and 1 in 7 males diagnosed with HIV attribute their infection to needle sharing and injection drug use. 7
Opioid misuse and addiction are major health issues that impact Indiana residents throughout the entire state, making the need for quality opioid treatment in Indianapolis vital. According to recent survey results:
Last year, nearly 12,000 individuals with an opioid addiction were treated at opioid treatment facilities in Indiana.
According to the Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS), the misuse of prescription opioids was reported in nearly 20% of Indiana treatment admissions while heroin use accounted for nearly a quarter of all treatment admissions.

Prior to starting any rehab therapy, you must first prepare your body for rehabilitation by undergoing detoxification and removing all traces of opioids from your system. Many people addicted to opioids develop a physical dependence for these drugs that will cause them to go through severe withdrawal after the discontinuation of use. The severity of symptoms usually peaks after 3 to 5 days, but some people may experience opioid withdrawal symptoms that last up to 10 days. Some of the uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms that opioids are notorious for producing include: 12
