When abused, pain medication and heroin, which are referred to as opiates, cause long-term changes in the brain. Therefore, if an opiate user suddenly stops use of the drug, without medical supervision, experiencing severe withdrawal symptoms is likely. Some reactions the body may have as a result of the opiate deprivation include:

  • Nausea, vomiting, and lower GI disturbances
  • Sleeplessness, restlessness, and trembling
  • Severe muscle cramping and bone pain
  • Spikes in blood pressure and heart rate
  • Persistent and often overwhelming cravings

Since opiate withdrawal is painful and unpleasant, those addicted to pain medication and/or heroin often abandon their recovery attempts. However, many do not know there is another way to escape the pain and suffering associated with opiate withdrawal – Medicated Assisted Treatment (MAT). MAT replaces the pain medication and/or heroin with Suboxone. Through the use of these pharmacological interventions, as many as 90 percent of opiate users are able to abstain from the drugs they abused.

Telehealth Options

Telehealth technology represents a unique opportunity to help reduce the drug epidemic and increase our ability to help serve those in need. Not only have patients expressed interest in using telehealth during the course of their treatment, but we have utilized telehealth in order to help keep participants safe and offer all of our services to a wide range of people who are unable to attend due to medical, geographic, or physical limitations.
