Don’t Fall Victim to the Opioid Epidemic
Ninety-one. That’s the number of Americans who die each day from an opioid overdose according to the CDC. Ninety-one people that will never see the light of another day. Ninety-one families left behind. Ninety-one lives ended – needlessly. In recent years, we have witnessed record numbers of opioid overdoses and deaths. Sadly, the trend continues to grow. More than just the biggest drug addiction threat ever known to man, the opioid addiction epidemic is one of the most dominant public health crises in the United States.
Drug treatment offers hope for those who suffer from this powerful addiction. One must have mental clarity and physical wellness to be present and involved in their drug treatment therapy. Thus, a complete and thorough drug detox is the critical first step to sobriety. At All About Recovery, we offer patients safe opioid detox. While a certain level of discomfort is unavoidable – treatment from a physician who is trained in medical detox makes the process more than bearable.
Don’t Let Denial Keep You Chained to Opioid Addiction
When a patient has been prescribed painkillers, such as oxycodone, methadone, hydrocodone, etc. – it’s much more difficult to identify when/if addictive behaviors develop. Behind the backs of their loved ones, patients often start taking many more pills than what has been prescribed. Even if a patient realizes that they might be taking too many painkillers, because they are legal and prescribed to them by a physician, it’s harder for them to accept that they have developed an opioid addiction.
This leads down a dangerous path that can quickly turn into a slippery slope to heroin addiction. Because prescription opioids are more expensive and scarce, users are tempted to calm their opioid withdrawal symptoms by using heroin. In fact, a staggering four out of five people that use heroin started out by taking prescription opioids.

What are Opioids?
Opioids are narcotic medications that are very strong and highly addictive. They are prescribed to treat acute and chronic pain and are remarkably effective. However, their potential for abuse is incredibly high and their effects mirror those of the opiate heroin. Common opioid medications include:
