Opiates are among the most addictive and dangerous drugs available today.
(PRWEB) July 23, 2014
In its latest blog post, Best Drug Rehabilitation, which offers treatment programs and believes that having family close by during a stay in rehab can make a big difference in whether or not the process is successful, is focusing on a topic that is quickly becoming among the most important of all drug and addiction-related dialogues: opiate abuse facts.
The Best Drug Rehabilitation blog post on opiate abuse facts highlights:
- An overview of opiates, and why they’re considered “the mother of all Schedule II drugs”
- The two most commonly abused types of opiates: morphine and codeine
- Common misconceptions between opiates and opioids
“Opiates are among the most addictive and dangerous drugs available today,” commented Best Drug Rehabilitation’s CEO Per Wickstrom. “Tragically, many individuals -- especially young people – have no idea what they’re getting into when they experiment with opiates. They think that they can remain in control, but it’s a delusion. Before long, many of them are doctor shopping, stealing pills from family members and friends, and living the painful, often unbearable life of an addict that typically, if untreated, winds up in the emergency ward, in jail, or in the morgue.”
Added Per Wickstrom: “However, as I noted, treatment is the best and, frankly, the only answer for addicts. With the right kind of medical care, combined with compassionate support, they can not only break free of their addiction and get sober, but they can living a happier, healthier and more fulfilling life than they ever dreamed possible!”
