Why Choose a Residential Detox for Opiates?
The purpose of a residential detox is to keep you safe and as comfortable as possible during the first stage of opiate recovery. Those of us who have been caught up in this type of addiction learn to dread the symptoms of withdrawal, and it is during this transition period that we are going to be at highest risk of relapse. By making this stage of recovery easier to deal with, an inpatient detox greatly increases the likelihood that we will achieve long-term recovery.

Detox for Morphine Addiction
Morphine is a powerful painkiller, and those who become addicted to this drug often begin by taking it for a legitimate reason. Doctors will sometimes prescribe this drug for severe pain, and the risk of dependence is usually low so long as people use it exactly as intended. The problem is that the side-effects of morphine are pleasant, and it becomes tempting to take the drug for a reason other than for why it is prescribed (e.g. to relax after a stressful day).
Morphine is as addictive as heroin, and it doesn't take long for those who abuse this drug to develop a habit. Once the person has become dependent, it means he/she will develop a tolerance for it and experience withdrawals when the drug is stopped or significantly reduced. At this stage, a residential detox where you can be supported as you come off the drug is likely to be your best chance of recovery.
Detox for Diamorphine (Heroin) Addiction
Heroin is the most notorious of all the opiates. It is most famous for being a recreational drug but diamorphine is also used in medical settings as well. Withdrawal form heroin tends to be unpleasant (as it is for most opiates) and usually include flu-like symptoms, diarrhea, muscle pain, intense cravings, and nausea/vomiting. Some people long-term users will also experience restless leg syndrome which makes it difficult to get comfortable. By staying in a residential detox, there will be treatments available to ease these symptoms, and the client will be supported through every step of the detox process.
Detox for Roxycodone Addiction
Roxycodone is sometimes prescribed for severe chronic pain. It is similar to oxycodone (see below) but it is designed to be slow-release - this means that the drug is released into the bloodstream over a long period of time. People who abuse roxycodone (e.g. crushing the tablets) can end up addicted just like they would with any other strong opiate. Once this happens, an inpatient detox may be required to break free of this drug.
Detox for Codeine Addiction
Codeine is such a commonly prescribed medication that it is easy to forget that it is a strong opiate. It does require a relatively large dose of this drug to experience the same high as a heroin hit, but it would be a mistake to treat the dangers of codeine abuse lightly. This medication can easily lead to addiction if it is not used as prescribed, and once this happens, a supervised detox may be required in order to break free.
Detox for Hydrocodone (Vicodin) Addiction
Hydrocodone is another narcotic that is designed to be released slowly into the blood stream. People can abuse it by breaking or crushing the tablet or by just taking it more frequently than prescribed. Like with other opiates, this drug can kill if people overdose on it - this is something that can easily happen when people are people are abusing the drug to get high. If you have developed a dependence on this drug, a residential detox will provide the resources you need to break free.
Detox for Oxycontin (Oxycodone) Addiction
Oxycontin is now one of the most commonly abused opiate drugs - even though the majority of recreational users began taking this drug for legitimate reasons. The negative effects of oxycodone abuse can completely destroy a person's life, relationships, career, and reputation. An inpatient detox provides a way out.
Detox for Fentanyl Addiction
Fentanyl is often used in a medical setting as an analgesic to treat breakthrough pain (acute pain that is not controlled by prescribed regular painkillers). Fentanyl can be up to a 100 times stronger than morphine, so this is a highly dangerous drug to abuse.
