Demerol Treatment

While an addiction to Demerol (meperidine) can seem incredibly hard and scary to overcome, many treatment programs can help make the detoxification process much easier. Those with a more extensive history of Demerol addiction may need to be treated under medical supervision in a hospital. A hospital setting provides patients with the appropriate resources to overcome the withdrawal symptom in a much safer and comfortable manner.

Some drug rehabs also offer Demerol treatment programs, but they might lack the medical support needed.  They usually provide peer support groups and educational programs to help their patients start a life in recovery. Differentiating drug treatment from peer support is extremely important when choosing the best detox center.

When selecting a treatment center, it is important to find a program with adequate medical resources available.

Choosing the Best Demerol Addiction Treatment Facility

Many people are prescribed Demerol for pain management. The drug attaches to the receptors which reduce the sensations of pain.  However, Demerol is not always used for medical purposes.  Many people begin using Demerol to manage physical pain and continued to self-medicate emotional distress.  No matter how it all began, tolerance, dependence, and addiction to Demerol can quickly take hold of someone’s life.

Each person is unique, even when taking the same drug as others. Individual needs must be considered by health care practitioners when it comes to choosing the best treatment protocol.

Inpatient medical detox is what is often recommended to individuals with Demerol addiction since the drug causes physical dependence. Opioid drugs have a significant risk of relapse associated with them due to the difficulties of overcoming the withdrawal symptoms. To avoid the possibility of relapse, inpatient medical treatment is much more conducive and beneficial to patients.

Who Mostly Benefits from Inpatient Medical Detoxification?

While most if not all people suffering from Demerol addiction can benefit from an inpatient medical detox, there are some in particular who benefits the most. Individuals who have experienced the following in their history:

  • Fear of withdrawal that keeps one from seeking treatment.
  • Severe or prolonged withdrawal symptoms
  • Pre-existing medical issues such as hypertension, diabetes or other conditions that can worsen with physical stress.
  • Inability to resist temptation and cravings.
  • Failure to handle stressful situations without turning to Demerol for relief.
  • Friends and/or family members who are also participating in substance abuse.
  • Lack of appropriate support and understanding from friends and relatives.


Withdrawal happens in different stages; the intensity and length will depend on several different factors, some of which have nothing to do with the drug itself.  The most common influences include the amount and regularity of the drug use and the physical and psychological condition of the patient.

Depending what is clinically indicated and personal preferences, patients may undergo rapid detox under anesthesia or a slower hospital based medically assisted detox.
