Opiate & Opioid Dependency
There are numerous treatment options for drug detoxification as well as differing approaches to managing an individual's addiction. At Mid Ohio Detox, our caring staff provide detoxification services for those struggling with an addiction to opiates (natural substances such as morphine) and opioids (synthesized substances such as Oxycontin). Some of the narcotic pain relieving drugs we treat with popular brand names in parentheses, include:
- meperidine (Demerol)
- oxycodone (Percocet or Oxycontin)
- hydrocodone (Vicodin or Lortab)
- fentanyl (Duragesic)
- tramadol (Ultram)
These prescription drugs are used to relieve pain or control certain conditions by reducing the intensity of the signals reaching the brain. In addition to being prescribed as painkillers, opioids like codeine or Lomotil are useful for relieving coughs and severe diarrhea, respectively. Since our practice deals with addiction to a specific group of drugs, we have a thorough understanding of the emotional and psychological impact caused by opiate addiction.
