What are Opioids?

Opioids are a class of that include heroin, prescription pain relievers such as hydrocodone (Vicodin®), oxycodone (OxyContin®), and morphine, and synthetic opioids like fentanyl. Opioids are often used to treat pain, and are commonly prescribed by physicians after a patient has had surgery or cancer. They work by attaching to receptors in the brain and blocking pain messages that are being sent from the body. Over the past few decades, the misuse of prescription opioids has become an epidemic, leading to the rise of the illicit opioid market.

Opioids are extremely addictive. They can initially have a euphoric effect, creating a high potential for long-term abuse. Those who attempt to stop taking opioids often experience painful withdrawal symptoms which make stopping the medication difficult, even if the patient sincerely wants to.

Frequently Asked Questions about Opioid Addiction Treatment in South Carolina

What is the most effective way to treat opioid addiction?

After a patient has been through detoxification, we have found that the most effective way to treat opioid addiction is with a combination of medication-assisted treatment (MAT) and mental health therapy. Recovery is an ongoing process, and it’s important to manage physical withdrawals and/or cravings, while also providing patients the emotional support they need to stay in recovery.

What is the first line of treatment for opioid use disorder?

For those in the throes of addiction, many will go through a detox program to ensure the substance is out of their system. During this detox, patients will often be provided medication to reduce withdrawal symptoms.

Vertical Treatment Centers is not a detox center, and we do not offer inpatient services for opioid addiction treatment. However, we do offer Suboxone treatment and mental health therapy for those facing opioid addiction.

How can I tell if a loved one is experiencing opioid withdrawals?

People in withdrawal often experience nausea, excessive sweating, chills or shivering, diarrhea, and muscle aches. From the outside, it can look like they are sick with the flu. Withdrawal symptoms often improve over time and go away after a few weeks.
