Top Rated Opioid Detox for Residents of Orlando
Opioids are typically a prescription medication that is given to a person that may be experiencing pain as a result of an injury or recent surgery. While there are many beneficial qualities associated with opioids when they are needed to treat pain, they are substances that are also highly addictive. As a result of opioid addiction, your very life may be jeopardized. Legacy Healing Center provides the opportunity to free yourself from the constraints of addiction and work through our holistic and individualized opioid detox for Orlando residents.
Opioid Withdrawal Symptoms
There are several symptoms that you may experience when you’re going through opioid withdrawal which could cause you serious physical or psychological harm. Some examples include:
- Runny nose
- Racing heart
- Stomach issues
Opioid Detox Timeline
You can expect to spend approximately seven days in opioid detox. The worst of your symptoms will develop in the first few hours and not peak until roughly the third day. Once you get toward the end of your week in detox, however, you will notice that you begin to feel much better both physically and psychologically.
What Causes Opioid Withdrawal Symptoms?
Opioids have a direct and startling impact on your brain. As your body and your brain become used to consuming this drug, you will come to find that if you go longer than a certain period of time, you will begin to crave it. When you don’t consume it, your body will go into a tailspin and you will begin to experience withdrawal symptoms.
How to Get Opioids Out of Your System
The safest way to get opioids out of your system is to go through a medical detox process. When you’re under the care of addiction experts, there is less of a chance of you experiencing potentially life-threatening withdrawal symptoms. At Legacy, we will care for you closely through this process and provide you with the support and physical care that you need during this stage of recovery.
Tapering Off Opioids
Tapering off opioids is one of the recommended ways to go through the process of removing opioids from your system. This process entails stepping down the dosage of opioids over a set period of time. Taking this step can help to avoid severe withdrawal symptoms, however, it’s something that should only ever be done if you are under the care of a trained medical professional.
Medications Used in Opioid Detox
The main types of medications that are typically used during the opioid detox process are buprenorphine and methadone. These medications will help to not only curtail the severity of your withdrawal symptoms but can actually help to control cravings as well. Since you will consume these medications in a controlled environment, you don’t have to worry about developing a dependence on these substances.
Opioid Rehab After Detox
Something that we always want our clients to be aware of is that coming to opioid detox for Orlando residents is only the first step. While it’s true that you may feel fantastic once you remove the influence of opioids from your system, there is still more work that needs to be done to heal the root cause of your addiction. This will be done by participating in one of our rehab programs.
Inpatient Opioid Rehab
An inpatient opioid rehab gives you the opportunity to exclusively focus on yourself during the time that you’re in treatment by living on our campus. Not only will you have the benefit of having a home away from home type of environment but you will have unlimited access to our treatment team and be able to take advantage of the wonderful amenities that our facility has to offer.
Outpatient Opioid Rehab
An outpatient opioid rehab program is one that is popular among clients that have full-time or even part-time work or school responsibilities. At Legacy, we offer our clients the opportunity to take advantage of an intensive outpatient program or a general outpatient program. The main difference between these two program options is the hourly level of therapeutic care that you will need to commit to each week. Intensive outpatient clients will need to commit to a minimum of nine hours of therapy per week while general outpatient program clients will need to commit to just one. If you need to change your schedule at any time, just let us know so that we can make the adjustments.
