How to Ask for Help with Opium Addiction

How to Ask for Help with Opium AddictionAddiction, like recovery, is a choice. You have to want detox and long-term recovery before you can choose it. Individuals often have to hit rock-bottom to realize how great life was before they abused drugs. Addicts must commit to follow medical advice and the processes involved in getting sober. The best place to find addiction help is through an accredited Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) treatment center, where the individual’s needs are assessed, where there are treatment approaches to address specific issues, and where licensed, trained addiction specialists are available to help you map out a plan for detox and recovery.

What to Do about Opium Addiction?

Perhaps you or someone you know is experiencing opium addiction. It may have started simply enough—a prescription for pain-relief, an ever-increasing drug tolerance, abusing the prescription and looking for ways to get more drugs at any cost. The cravings have been relentless. Relationships have changed as the drugs become your life’s focus. Money once reserved for bills is going to your next hit. It’s getting harder to balance work, home and addiction. Your frustration heightens until you are at a point of no return. You either get help now or stay in this cycle of abuse. The choice is in front of you but you hesitate with the following questions:

  • How will I know if my family and friends will support me?
  • Can I really come clean after all this time?
  • How can I afford treatment?
  • Is there help for my family when I go through rehab?
  • Where can I get treatment for opium addiction?
  • What happens during withdrawal?
  • Will the cravings subside once I detox?

When you call us for information, we’ll help you find treatment solutions to your addiction issues. Together, we’ll develop a structured treatment plan you can participate in during and after rehab.
