is one of the most physically difficult addictions to treat, which means that an opiate rehab
program equipped to provide you with both medical care and psychological support is essential.
Opiate painkiller addiction, heroin addiction and methadone addiction are the three most common types of opiate addiction and all three require opiate detox and addiction treatment.

Opiate painkiller addiction usually begins with a prescription for chronic moderate to severe pain.
After an accident or surgery, many go home with a prescription for opiate painkillers in hand. If this prescription is not monitored carefully, an opiate painkiller addiction can quickly develop. Once a painkiller addiction is an issue, many exacerbate the situation when their doctor stops raising their does. Some crush the pills and snort them instead of swallowing them whole. Others get duplicate prescriptions by “doctor shopping,” an illegal practice. Still others find prescription painkillers online and purchase them without a prescription.
All of these result in a higher tolerance for the drug, which means an addiction that becomes harder and harder to break.
is another type of opiate addiction. Usually injected, the risks of heroin addiction go far beyond the usual risk of chronic illness.
Heroin overdose is exceedingly common and infections at the site of injection, endocarditis and abscesses are common issues for most heroin addicts. Heroin addiction can be addressed most effectively at an inpatient drug addiction treatment center that provide medical detox and extended psychological addiction treatment. Learning how to live without the drug physically is a huge hurdle but learning the coping skills you need to continue to live without relapse is an even more important part of treatment.
Methadone addiction comes in two forms: those who have the prescription pills for pain management and those who are taking the drug in its liquid form to treat heroin addiction. Many find that methadone treatment after heroin addiction means nothing more than a transferred dependence on a new substance. Even those at a blocking dose of 80 milligrams or more are tempted to abuse their prescription and supplement with other drugs and alcohol.
Getting help is essential, and choosing an inpatient treatment that keeps you from relapse and provides you with continued support in your recovery is one of the best ways to change your life for good. Most who are in treatment for a second or third time understand that the true change comes from longer and more immersive treatment programs like the Opiate addiction
