About Opiate Withdrawal Remedies
Opiate addicts do not need to feel hopeless when it comes to withdrawals. Seeking help and treatment may be discouraging, and knowing the tremendous suffering these withdrawals can cause, often leaves the addict feeling they have only one choice, and that is to remain on the opioid medication because their body and minds, literally, depend on it. Suggestions pour in from addicts who have conquered the withdrawal phase as well as researchers who continue to find alternative remedies for opiate withdrawals. With 1 in 5 youths, ages 12-17, and an estimated 9% of the populations illicitly using opiates, opiate withdrawal remedies are important to understand before attempting to rely on them. New replacement medications, access to pharmaceuticals and herbal remedies, self help methods, and the other enormous information on the internet cannot compare to individual attention an addict receives when they participate in a rehab program. These programs are designed to “safely” stabilize and comfort the addict through the withdrawal process while proving to encourage continued abstinence. Safety is a key concern in any opiate withdrawal, complications, as well as relapses, can sometimes, prove dangerous or fatal and these programs combine counseling and therapy that are proven key elements in permanent recovery from this addiction.
