Detox from Opiates and Opioids
Opiates (Heroin and Morphine) are drugs that are extracted from the natural poppy plant. Opioid drugs (like Oxycodone, Hydrocodone and Opana ER) act like opiates, but are synthetic (manufactured) chemical compounds.
Detox from dependency on opiates (like heroin & morphine) is very similar to detox from opioids (like Oxycontin, Percocet, Vicodin and Hydrocodone).
Some detox centers do not medicate their patients during withdrawal. This is known as “cold turkey” and at Sunrise Detox, we don’t believe in it. Opiate withdrawal symptoms can produce potentially dangerous health situations. The pain of the withdrawal symptoms can make it psychologically difficult to stay in a detox program. At Sunrise Detox, we use a medication that allows our clients to remain comfortable and alert during their stay with us. We treat any discomfort that may arise, which allows clients to detox with virtually no withdrawal symptoms. Call us today at 954-491-9700.
