Opiate withdrawal occurs when an opiate addict or user suddenly stops using opiates in his or her everyday life. A Forever Recovery offers professional withdrawal processes and programs. This process is something every opiate user must go through whenever he or she is coming clean from opiate addiction and if he or she quits while undergoing this process they will then have to begin the withdrawal process all over again.
Opiate Withdrawal Should Only Be Attempted Under Doctor’s Care
Withdrawing from opiates has its pros and its cons. For the most part, this part of addiction recovery is good because it gives the addict the chance to lose his or her physical addiction, but if the process is not done under the supervision of professionals it can have fatal consequences.
Withdrawal symptoms from opiates have been linked to deaths because it is such a violent shock to the body. Thousands of people every year in America give up their opiate addiction recovery because they can not make it through the opiate withdrawal process. Some side effects you should expect when beginning opiate withdrawal include headaches, body aches and pains, nausea, fever, sweating, cold and hot flashes, diarrhea, mood swings, confusion, and disorientation. For the most part, these side effects are mild and happen to people who have mild opiate addictions.
