As per the recent national survey about 28 Lakh opioid dependent users are suffering from opioid use disorder. Opioids include substances such as heroin, morphine, codeine and propoxyphene that relieve pain. Individuals with opioid substance disorders repeatedly self-administer opioid without any legitimate medical reasons or in excess of required dosage. Opioids are usually obtained illegally or from physicians by misrepresenting medical problems or taking medication from several physicians at the same time.
Opioids induce euphoria, drowsiness, slow down breathing and are analgesic. A patient with Opioid use disorder will exhibit some of the following symptoms :
Symptoms such as excessive bodyache, yawning, muscle weakness, diarrhoea , nausea, vomiting, chills and insomnia are commonly associated with withdrawal of opioids.
Can begin at any age, but generally comes to notice in the late teens or early 20s. Increased age is linked to less use, possibly owing to early deaths and absence of symptoms post age of 40.
Impulsivity and novelty seeking behaviours are linked to higher opiate usage. Peer usage as well as family and social environment also influences. High risk for accidental as well as intentional suicides due to intense withdrawal symptoms.
Medications are given to manage the craving or desire to consume Opioids.
Quitting the addictive substance is the first step and the crucial beginning of a long battle against craving and relapse. Counseling is an essential part of treatment for all patients of addiction. Drug refusal skills, craving management, anger management, and problem solving skills are various skills to be imparted to the patient in counseling and help those recovering from addiction stay clean. Psychotherapy can also be used to treat the other mental health conditions that often contribute to addiction.
Addiction is more than a physical dependence on drugs, alcohol and tobacco. Even after detox, when physical dependence is cured, patients are at high risk for relapse. Psychological and social factors are often powerful stimuli for relapse, which include :
These factors can create ongoing, nearly irresistible urges to use various substances of abuse. Counseling helps patients escape craving and learn to cope with life, without falling prey to addiction. Several counseling therapies are available for addictions abuse, and no method is known to be the best. Likewise, no one approach is appropriate for everyone with addiction. At UMANG CLINIC, a personalized counseling & treatment plan will be designed to cater to each individual’s addiction problem.
Treatment enables people to counteract addiction's powerful disruptive effects on the brain and behavior and to regain control of their lives. In addition to stopping regular substance use, the goal of treatment is to return people to productive functioning in the family, workplace, and community.
Nearly all patients suffering from addiction problem believe at the outset that they can stop using drugs on their own, some succeed but unfortunately most relapse. The psychological and physiological dependence which the patient is habituated to requires professional treatment and guidance which increases their chances of being successful and achieve long-term abstinence.
