Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Aurora, CO
Opioid addiction is a common form of addiction, often caused by prescription drugs that are abused. Addiction is treated by detoxifying the body and following up with therapies to correct behavior and target the root of the problem.
Most opioid addiction begins with patients being prescribed painkillers after an injury or surgery. The body becomes used to the chemicals in these medications and soon no longer responds to their presence. As a result, addicts seek out stronger opiate-based medications like Oxycodone to compensate for the lack of effectiveness.
The most dangerous aspect is that these addictive behaviors often get carried over onto illicit drugs like heroin, which are increasingly potent and result in lower life expectancies.
Dual Diagnosis treatment centers like University of Colorado Hospital Authority provide this treatment tailored to the patient’s specific needs, and they also have a specialized focus on addiction treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often coexists with another mental illness, such as depression or schizophrenia. In other words, drug addiction is only a symptom of a deeper problem.
When addiction enters into the picture, it can often lead to dangerous consequences in the addict’s life.
