Opioid withdrawal may not be life threatening like it is with alcohol withdrawal, but that does not mean it is easy to deal with. In fact, the symptoms of opioid withdrawal alongside the physically addictive properties of opioids are why so many people have problems with abuse of opioids and eventual addiction. Opioid withdrawal can be overcome - some would say easier than alcohol withdrawal - but getting treatment is one way to help increase your chances. Online therapy with trained therapists on GoMentor.com who specialize with opioid abuse can help you if you want to be able to overcome opioid withdrawal and quit your addiction.
Symptoms of Opioid Withdrawal
- Lack of energy and lots of yawning often occur when going through opioid withdrawal.
- Excessive sweating, anxiety and restlessness also affect people trying to give up opioids all at once.
- Piloerection (hair standing on end) is something else that may occur frequently.
- Insomnia - not being able to sleep - may affect something going through withdrawal from opioids.
- Dilated pupils are one of the physical signs of people giving up opioids.
- Nausea, vomiting and general abdominal pains usually accompany attempts to stop opioid use too quickly.
Some of the above are definitely more serious and frightening than others, but here are some things to consider about the dangers of opioid withdrawal. When you compare those to the benefits of treatment for opioid abuse, it is going to be an easy choice.
Dangers of Opioid Withdrawal
Opioid withdrawal is not as dangerous as alcohol or some other drugs, but the symptoms still aren't something you want to go through as they may cause other complications. Because the body has a physical addiction to the drug, quitting opioids slowly may or may not be possible even if it is the best way to avoid the dangers and risks of opioid withdrawal. Whatever you decide, getting help with treatment for opioid withdrawal is recommended if you want to have the best chance of success at breaking your cycle of opioid abuse once and for all.
Treatment for Opioid Withdrawal
In order to avoid the symptoms of opioid withdrawal, it is usually recommended that people gradually step-down their use of opioids. While this will help lessen some of the withdrawal symptoms, there are sure to be cravings and other psychological issues that crop up when trying to quit an opioid addiction. The good news is that on GoMentor.com, you can book online therapy sessions with highly skilled therapists who can help you with the process of recovery with psychotherapy and other forms of online treatment.
