Opioid Rehab for Queens Residents

Opioid Epidemic

The opioid epidemic began to take hold of America in the late 1990s. Although it was general knowledge in the medical community that opioid use could lead to addiction, various pharmaceutical companies played this addiction down, which, in turn, led to an increase in doctors prescribing these potentially dangerous medications.

History of Opioid Addiction

You may be surprised to know that opioids have been in existence for thousands of years in some way, shape, or form. Sadly, it’s only in the past few decades that the extreme addiction qualities of opioids have come to light, leading to the opioid epidemic’s development.

How to Detox from Opioids

Unfortunately, detoxing from opioids is not an easy feat. Within a few hours of the last time you consumed your opioid of choice, your brain and body will begin to crave more. If you do not take another opioid, your body will start the process of physical withdrawal. Although it’s nearly impossible to narrow down precisely what you will feel when you begin to withdraw, typical examples of withdrawal symptoms include an increase in anxiety, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and nausea.

Due to the unknown severity of your symptoms, it’s never advisable that you attempt to withdraw from opioids if you are not under the care of a trained and experienced medical professional.
