Detox from Opiates and Opioids
Opiates and opioids are popular medications that come with an elevated likelihood of addiction. Unfortunately, once you have an opioid addiction, stopping use may be accompanied by instant withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms have the ability to be dangerous, distressing, and typically cause relapse if not addressed. To taper off opioids safely, you’ll want to seek the help of a residential detox facility, like Sunrise Detox Center.
For close to 20 years, Sunrise Detox has provided medically-supervised opiate and opioid detox services to carefully help you clear your system of opioids. Our top priorities are to keep you safe and comfortable during detoxification and help you get ready for the following stage of recovery. Whenever you or a family member need help immediately, call us at 888-443-3869 and start your detox today!
Should I Go To Opioid Detox?
When you cease using opioids or opiates, you will go through withdrawal. These symptoms can be dangerous -- even life-threatening -- to handle on your own. The optimal plan to ensure an effective and safe way to stop using opioids is with medically supervised detox at a center like Sunrise Detox Center.
When you choose Sunrise Detox Center, we’ll provide 24-hour medical care so your body may clear itself of:
- Oxycodone (OxyContin®, Percocet®)
- Hydrocodone (Vicodin®)
- Morphine (Kadian®, Avinza®)
- Or other opioids
Over the course of detox, we’ll keep you stable from a medical standpoint and as physically at ease as we possibly can. If you or a member of your family are ready to dedicate yourself to getting sober or are presently battling opioid withdrawal, call us today. We are here to help you make the first move in your addiction recovery journey.
What Should I Expect From Opioid Detox At Sunrise?
Opioid and opiate detox can be challenging, but we know how to help you get through the process in a safe and successful manner. During the admissions stage, we’ll evaluate your condition and past medical records to design an individualized care plan. This plan lets us determine medications and treatment durations to accommodate your unique needs for the ideal results. You’ll then be provided a pleasant bedroom to stay in, with nutritious meals and healthy snacks served every day to sustain your strength.
We understand that detox might cause bodily and psychological strain. Our personnel are on-site around the clock to assist you in any way possible. During your time with us, we track your vitals to be certain your body doesn’t experience shock. We employ safe but effective treatments to ease:
- Vomiting and nausea
- Restless legs
- Other typical withdrawal symptoms
As you begin to feel stronger, we encourage you to attend one-on-one and group therapy for the benefits of peer support. We’ll also work with you to draft an ongoing care plan for staying sober and assist in finding the proper rehab services so you can have a lasting recovery.
How Long Will I Be In Opioid Detox?
To detox in a safe manner from opioids and opiates, you’ll need to get care in our hospitable center. How long you stay is dependent on:
- The level of your opioid or opiate use
- Your physical health
- Your response to treatment
Many patients fully complete detox within one week to 10 days, but it could require more time to feel well enough to transition from Sunrise Detox Center to an addiction rehab center for further care. Our professionals will sign your release when we can ensure you are stable from a medical standpoint and have an aftercare plan.
How Will Sunrise Keep Me Protected Over The Course Of Opioid And Opiate Detox?
Our medical staff is expertly trained in drug detox and withdrawal care. Our approach to your safety at Sunrise has two main objectives: we want to mitigate serious withdrawal effects and stop a separate addiction to treatment medication. We ensure your safety with:
- A custom treatment plan for every individual
- Around the clock medically supervised care
- Comfortable rooms and community spaces
- A secure site away from external triggers and trauma
- Strict confidentiality and patient privacy guidelines
- A focus on aftercare planning
The majority of patients will be prescribed Suboxone for tapering off opioids because it has a reduced likelihood for addiction than other addiction treatment drugs. Suboxone is able to relieve withdrawal symptoms, but only if it's administered by experienced professionals. If you’re given Suboxone, you’ll go through the following procedure:
- We’ll delay the use of Suboxone until the appropriate time to prevent precipitated withdrawal
- Then, you’ll start with a test dose and we’ll track your response
- We’ll adjust or try other treatments when necessary
- At the end, we’ll gradually taper you off Suboxone
