The Opioid Crisis
Opioid abusers looking for an effective North Dakota detox are often left without appropriate drug treatment resources. Some people believe that the state is years behind in the ability in treating opioid addiction. After a significant increase in overdose cases, officials recognized the alarming opioid and heroin abuse problem which continues to grow. As a result, a methadone clinic in Fargo and additional treatment centers have opened their doors in North Dakota.
Methadone Clinics in North Dakota
Methadone Clinics are often thought of as the standard treatment for heroin addiction. Unfortunately, Methadone has several significant dangers of its own. To understand its risks we first have to know how the drug works.
Methadone eliminates physical withdrawal symptoms from opioids because it is an opiate similar to heroin and morphine; the drug works by occupying the opioid receptors. Methadone causes a similar tolerance building, is a very addictive drug and has a very high risk for overdose ( especially when mixed with alcohol or benzodiazepines). The potentially dangerous effects of methadone maintenance, call its use as an opioid treatment into question. The fear of a painful and prolonged withdrawal can also leave people using methadone indefinitely. As a result, Methadone users end up trading one addiction for another.
Prescription Opioid Addiction
Prescription opioid addiction affects many people across the country and is nothing to be ashamed of. People may become inadvertently dependent upon their prescription medication if they’re taken for too long or at high doses. People living in North Dakota have someplace safe to turn if they find themselves in this predicament. Waismann Method’s program for rapid opiate detoxification treats this problem with compassion and addresses each patient individually. Our experts in the field of opiate dependence can attest that this issue is affecting nearly every community in this country and has widespread implications. In addition to health problems, opiate dependence can lead to many legal and personal problems.
From Prescripton to Heroin
Diversion of prescription drugs is an escalating problem in much of the U.S., as the number of prescriptions being written for them increases. The ease of access and lack of stigma associated with prescription medications makes them targets for diversion and abuse. Many people feel that these potent opioids are safe because a doctor prescribes them. Once people become dependent on these controlled substances, they may turn to various methods of diversion to obtain them. The DEA said popular diversion methods in North Dakota include doctor shopping, or visiting multiple doctors to secure more than one supply of a drug. Another problem is the illegal sale and distribution by healthcare workers who have access to these medications. Some may steal them for their own use, while others may sell them on the street. People who are desperate for these medications may forge prescriptions or simply seek heroin.
