Effects of Opioid Use

Opioids attach to the receptors in your brain that relieve pain and result in feelings of pleasure. Dopamine, a chemical in the brain, is released at increased levels when opioids stimulate your reward circuits. This release leads to repeated drug use.

Short-term effects of opiates and morphine derivatives include

  • Drowsiness
  • Slowed breathing
  • Constipation
  • Unconsciousness
  • Nausea
  • Coma
 

Dopamine tells the brain to continue behaving in the same way, which contributes to making opiates so addictive. Since opioids depress the body, your movements and functions become much slower.

Restored Path Detox can help. Our opiate detox program in Dallas provides the most comprehensive, individualized, and medically monitored opiate withdrawal program available.

Opioid U.S. Usage Facts

Unfortunately, the morbidity associated with opioid use has increased dramatically, with overdose incidents nearly quadrupling over the past decade. And more women are misusing opioids during pregnancy, leading to neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS).

According to the U.S. Health and Human Services

  • More than 760,000 people have died since 1999 from a drug overdose
  • Two out of three drug overdose deaths in 2018 involved an opioid
  • In 2019, an estimated 10.1 million people aged 12 or older misused opioids
  • Specifically, in 2019, 9.7 million people misused prescription pain relievers, and 745,000 people used heroin
  • Over 70% of the 70,630 deaths in 2019 involved an opioid
    From 2018 to 2019, there were significant changes in opioid-involved death rates:

  • Opioid-involved death rates increased by over 6%
  • Synthetic opioid-involved death rates (excluding methadone) increased by over 15%

Opioid Use Signs and Symptoms

When taken short-term as prescribed by a physician, opioids can safely reduce intense physical pain. However, taking an opioid over a long period can lead to dependence.

Once you become dependent on opioids, you will experience withdrawal symptoms if you reduce or suddenly stop taking opioids. This can cause a vicious cycle — you might try to cut back or stop using, and you start retaking the drug for relief upon suffering uncomfortable opiate withdrawal symptoms.

Opioid misuse may sometimes lead to heroin use.

Too high a dose can lead to extreme drowsiness, nausea, euphoria, and slowed breathing. The risks of opioid dependence and addiction are higher if you misuse the medicines. Misuse includes

  • Taking someone else’s prescription
  • Taking your opioids in a different way than you are supposed to
  • Taking the drug to get high
 

Opioid addictions can be masked as medically necessary by the user for treating chronic pain. This can also make it difficult for families to commit to getting help.

Signs to watch for can include:

  • Avoiding time with family and friends
  • Being very tired and sad
  • Irritability and nervousness
  • Experiencing financial hardship
  • Getting into trouble with law enforcement
  • Changing friend circles
  • Poor hygiene
  • Loss of interest in activities
  • Altered eating habits
  • Quick mood changes
  • Missing essential obligations

Opioid Withdrawal Signs and Symptoms

If opioid use is reduced or stopped, withdrawal symptoms can occur. Since the body is so used to opioids being provided, it stops producing dopamine. The sudden absence of opioids causes the brain to readjust, which can cause discomfort.

Signs of opiate detox and withdrawal can include

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety
  • Increased body temperature
  • Racing heart
  • Muscle and bone pain
  • Sweating
  • Chills
  • High blood pressure

Why Is Medical Detox From Opiates Necessary?

Withdrawal symptoms can be intense and persist for weeks, depending on the length and severity of the addiction. To help you readjust and feel more comfortable throughout this process, we offer medically monitored opiate withdrawal help, regardless of your history of use.

Restored Path Detox offers the safest way to navigate your opioid withdrawal through treatment by caring medical professionals, including counseling, support, and medications to alleviate your opiate withdrawal symptoms. While symptoms commonly last 3-5 days, they can extend into weeks or even months in severe cases.

We are with you every step of the way. You are not alone in your journey back to health.

How Long Does Opiate Withdrawal Take?

The opiate withdrawal timeline largely depends on the type of opioid (short-acting or long-acting), the severity of symptoms, the duration of opioid use, the dose taken, and the time between doses.

Here is a basic timeline for short-acting opiates:

  • Initial symptoms appear within 6-12 hours of the last dose
  • Withdrawal symptoms intensify within 1-3 days
  • Symptoms may continue for up to 7 days
 

Here is a basic timeline for long-acting opiates:

  • Initial symptoms appear within 2-4 days of the last dose
  • Withdrawal symptoms intensify within 1-3 days
  • Symptoms may continue for as long as 3 weeks
