For many users, the unanswered questions about what treatment would look like can deter them from taking action. We want to give you a realistic picture about the recovery solutions available to you so you can overcome rehab anxiety to take your first step in reaching out for help.
Many people try to conquer drug addiction themselves but few ever succeed. The desire to go solo in quitting drugs, especially prescription drugs, is often rooted in a fear of what others will think of you. After all, if you checked yourself into rehab, at least some people in your life would have to know. Dealing with the shame from others, whether real or imagined, is one of the most important obstacles to overcome in breaking the power of addiction in your life.
Professional rehab provides resources that are invaluable to your recovery success. In order to detox from morphine safely, you’ll need a medically supervised environment. You’ll also need the controlled structure of the environment in order to help you break your morphine habit. In addition, treatment centers offer a variety of support therapies including group, individual and family counseling. In order to walk a new road, you will need help establishing new habits, boundaries and goals. All of these things can be achieved in the right rehab environment as long as you are willing to commit yourself to a successful outcome.
No addict gets to walk the road of recovery without first passing through the gateway of detox and withdrawal. It is a necessary step, and once you settle that in yourself, you can emotionally prepare yourself for it. Morphine withdrawal symptoms often include the following:
The good news is that these physical withdrawal symptoms will not last forever. Within the first 72 hours of detox, your symptoms should peak and begin to subside.
It’s important to realize that detox and rehab cannot make your cravings for morphine go away. But you can learn how to manage the cravings when they come with healthy responses. This is why aftercare is so important. Aftercare refers to ongoing support once you re-enter your home and work environment upon the completion of rehab. Being able to connect regularly with recovering addicts who have been in your situation will help you grow mentally and emotionally strong when you do sense a craving coming on. You will also have a plan of action, including leaning on others in times of need, in order to help prevent relapse.
Just as addiction did not occur overnight, recovery from addiction is a process. You cannot get free in one day. Willpower to quit is not your answer. True healing lies in the supportive process of recovery treatment, assisted by professionals, friends and family members who want to see you free from your morphine addiction. Why wait one more day?
