Tips for Staying Clean After Opioid Detox

Detoxification is difficult, if not done correctly relapse becomes all too common. It’s especially difficult with opioid addiction. Did you know that three out of four people relapse within a month after detoxification? Now mind you many of these folks were flying solo with a home detox plan. Some were working with an outpatient program. Seldom did relapses occur after finishing a medically monitored rehab center treatment utilizing a custom-tailored plan set to their situation and lifestyle. So, the statistics are not all that surprising (cite below).

What Has Been Done to Fix the Opioid Addiction Problem?

As more and more Americans became addicted to prescription pain-killers, regulatory agencies started going after doctors who over-prescribed these pharmaceutical drugs causing many doctors to cut back or cut off their patients’ prescriptions altogether. Of course, those addicted took to the streets to find alternatives, and that meant illegal drugs such as heroin. Heroin on the street is much cheaper, adding to the usage and addiction problem.

History of the Opioid Addiction Crisis – How Could This Happen?

Did you know that Genghis Khan’s army used opium for anesthesia when manually setting broken bones because it dampened the pain and relaxed muscles? Using the drug made the procedure for dealing with dislocations and fractures easier on the patient and those doing the surgery?

There are also certain genes that many people have that double and triple that risk.

High THC Marijuana Use and Mental Health

With the legalizing of marijuana for recreational use in California and other places, we find the industry alive and well. Maybe too well. You see, there are lots of specialty commercial growers who are pumping up the volume on the THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) content. THC, as you know, is the active ingredient in marijuana that gets you high. It has an almost immediate psychological effect that puts the user in an altered state-of-mind.
