Opiate intake regularly can lead to disorders related to the central nervous system. In an opiate addiction, the person is habitual to taking opiate drugs for “pain management”. This constant use of the opiates, affects the functioning of the nerve cells that results in the end of the “natural endorphins” production, which are capable of relieving pain in the body naturally. Since there are no natural endorphins in the body, the nerve cells degenerate, resulting in complete dependency of the body on the opiate drugs.
A person trying to quit the habit of opiates, many a times tends to undergo sudden withdrawal from the opiates, known as the opiate detox. Opiate detox, is considered by many, as the “painless way to withdrawal from opium”. However, not true. Experts believe that without proper medical treatment or expert’s assistance the opiate detox can lead to further complications in the body. The opiate detox, which is not assisted medically, can lead to “severe withdrawal systems”. This type of opiate detox can result in “permanent damage” to the “cardio- pulmonary system”. An unmonitored opiate detox can even result in the death of the patient.
Therefore, to avoid this stage, it is very necessary to provide the opiate detox patients with appropriate medical treatment. There are several treatment centers established at various places, for helping the patients of opiate detox and provide them with proper medical care. An assured place for proper help and assistance regarding the treatment centers is available at www.treatmentcenters.com.
