Opioid Addiction Treatment
1000 Islands Addiction Rehab offers opioid addiction treatment. Opioid addiction continues to be one of the bigger medical issues in Canada. Prescription Opioids treat chronic pain. Prolonged use leads to dependence. In addition, non-medical use of opioids not obtained through legal sources continues to be a problem. These streams are frequently laced or cut with other drugs such as cocaine and heroin. A clinical detoxification and therapeutic approach is required to remove dependence on opioids. Thousand Islands Addiction Rehab’s comprehensive treatment program is recognized as one of the most successful in Canada.
The Dangers of Opiods
Opiods are used in pain management. For users there is a described feeling of euphoria “high”. High dosage use causes drowsiness, respiratory issues and can lead to coma or death. Injection of opiods can damage the circulatory system and organs. Sharing of needles or injecting increases the risk of getting infections such as HIF and Hep C. Long term use creates a physical dependence with ever increasing tolerance to the effects. This means that users must increase dosage to feel the same high. There have been increasing instances of overdoses in Canada over the last few years.
