Michigan Opioid Detox

Painkiller Detoxification in Michigan

Opioids numb pain while stimulating the brain’s pleasure centers, which is why they are used in the creation of painkillers. Addiction to opioids is a rapidly growing problem in the United States. Thankfully, these drugs usually have a short duration and the withdrawal symptoms are rarely life-threatening. That said, very few people are able to successfully detox from opioids without professional help. These drugs are extremely addicting and hard to break away from alone.

At Detox Expert in Michigan, you can go through detoxification with a board certified Addiction Medicine specialist who has over 40 years of experience. We are not a rehabilitation center—our goal is to help you take that first, critical step towards breaking an addiction.

Your Body & Dopamine

Opioids stimulate dopamine in the brain, which creates a euphoric sensation. This is the sensation one feels when high on heroin, morphine, and oxycodone. People often chase these feelings, which is why they start to use opioids more and more. Eventually, the brain becomes reliant on the dopamine supplied by the drug and stops producing it on its own. As a result, people addicted to opioids immediately feel the effects of withdrawal when they cut themselves off. The desire for pleasure and the avoidance of withdrawal is what makes opioids one of the most addictive substances.

Some symptoms of opioid withdrawal include:

  • Chills
  • Sweating
  • High blood pressure
  • Insomnia
  • Aches and cramping
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Decreased heart rate

The Detox Process

Detoxification for opioids begins with an assessment of your condition. We need to know how long you’ve been taking them, how often, what kind of dosage you take, and if other members of your family have struggled with addiction. All these factors will help us determine what kind of withdrawal symptoms you are most likely to experience. We will monitor your vital signs during the detox process to make sure you are not experiencing any serious adverse effects.

As a Medication Assisted Treatment center, we often provide our patients with medicine to help them with their withdrawal symptoms. Some patients benefit from taking methadone, a synthetic, less powerful opiate that helps fight cravings and diminish withdrawal symptoms. Whatever path your detoxification takes, we will be by your side every step of the way.
