Morphine Addiction

There Is Treatment Help For Morphine Addiction

Morphine is an opiate painkiller drug used to treat chronic pain.  Short and long-acting pain forms of Morphine are often used together for severe chronic (long-term) cancer pain. A quick, short-acting form of morphine is given when pain “breaks through” the longer-acting medicine. Patients who have surgeries and hospital stays have pain monitored closely to manage the amount of morphine given. It is also given in a pill or liquid for home pain management.Our campuses are set up to help with all stages of morphine addiction rehab including medically supervised detox, inpatient residential treatment, intensive outpatient treatment and even sober living. We have the right facilities and the dedicated support staff to help you or a loved one kick the habit of morphine addiction.

Because morphine is made in both long-acting and short-acting forms, it can be used for either of these roles. One of morphine’s sustained-release forms may be used for continuous pain relief, and a short-acting form of morphine that relieves pain quickly (often a liquid) may be used as the short-burst of medicine.

Keep In Mind

Morphine affects the central nervous system, so it is imperative that users do not take other drugs or substances that slow down the brain or nervous system such as alcohol, sedatives, muscle relaxers, and sleeping pills while taking morphine. Also, morphine can slow or stop your breathing so you must not take morphine if you have severe asthma or breathing problems.

Dangers Of Morphine Abuse

Misuse of morphine can cause a user to overdose and die. Taking more than prescribed or taking more of the Morphine more often in the day can cause a fatal overdose.

Withdrawal Symptoms Of Morphine

Morphine modifies the brain to react differently to physical pain. It does this by binding to opioid receptors in the brain and central nervous system, reducing the perception of pain as well as the emotional response to pain.

A person who abuses morphine can become addicted. They will show signs of slurred speech, slow movements, slow heart rate and general malaise. Other side effects severe itching, blurred vision, headaches, seizures, memory loss, constipation and irregular sleep patterns. When someone who is addicted to morphine stops taking the pill suddenly, they can experience moderate to severe withdrawal symptoms like mood swings, constipation, abdominal cramping, migraines, nausea and vomiting.

Getting Treatment For Morphine Addiction

These symptoms should be moderated at a proper detox facility by medical doctors. At Addiction Campuses, we know that withdrawal can often drive a person addicted to morphine to do things they wouldn’t normally do to get the symptoms to stop. Our campuses are set up to help with all stages of drug rehab including medically supervised detox, inpatient residential treatment, intensive outpatient treatment and even sober living. Those are the right facilities to help kick the habit of morphine addiction.

One year ago, my son took a huge step in the right direction as I dropped him off at Addiction Campuses of Tennessee, Spring 2 Life Campus. That decision will change his life and impact our family forever. We are eternally grateful to Addiction Campuses of Tennessee for helping turn our son around and get him started in a new life! We love our new family at ACTN!
