Opioids are a type of morphine-like substance that describes drugs made from the poppy plant. This substance category includes heroin, codeine, and oxycodone. Some synthetic opioids exist, like fentanyl, which are extremely powerful and dangerous in lower doses than opium-derived drugs. Opioids bind to the opioid receptors in your brain to block out and numb pain. This is part of why they’re ideal for use in prescription painkillers and abuse.
Opioids will kill substance abusers by lowering the heart rate and making it increasingly difficult to breathe. This can lead to a coma or death in an overdose situation. The current number of deaths from all drug overdoses in the US numbers over 70,000, with fentanyl rocketing up as a massive share of overdose causes. Just under 50,000 overdose deaths are due to opioids.
As of 2019 in Tennessee, over 3% of citizens aged 12 and up have used illegal substances. In 2020 there were over 5 million prescriptions for opioid painkillers in the state of Tennessee alone, with 2,089 overdose deaths reported in 2019. 0.71% of adults had a pain reliever use disorder as well.
Opioid addiction can begin as an addiction to a prescribed painkiller. No one is above the abuse of opioids, especially in the middle of an opioid abuse epidemic. This can turn into a full-blown addiction to opioid drugs that can derail an externally normal-looking life. Managing an opioid prescription properly under a doctor’s supervision is very important due to how easy it is to become addicted.
Achieving long-term recovery can be difficult for new patients. Most patients relapse at least once but maintaining the process of recovery is extremely important for individuals. If we can prevent a single relapse, then we’re succeeding at getting you on the right track immediately. Don’t be ashamed if you need continuing help due to relapse or the inability to kick habitual behavior immediately—it takes time, which we have plenty of to help you with as an organization. We’re extremely dedicated to ensuring our patients see this process through all the way into a full and lasting recovery.
Our residential treatment is available to patients in need of supervised detox and more extensive treatment. In addition to a residential program, we offer an outpatient program where you live at home but spend your days here at our facility undergoing different types of therapy, activities, and counseling for several weeks. Our staff is extensively trained, and they possess expert knowledge on treating addiction.
