What Is Addiction?
Addiction is a serious disease that affects your behavior. When you’re addicted to something, you can’t stop doing it, even if it’s harmful.
People can become addicted to many things, including drugs, alcohol, gambling, sex, and shopping. Addiction is often hard to overcome because it changes the way your brain works. Often, people need professional help to break an addiction. Substance abuse treatment programs in Tennessee at Nashville Treatment Solutions can help.
The addiction cycle is made up of four main stages:
- Substance abuse – You start using a substance more and more.
- Tolerance – You need more of the substance to get the same effect.
- Dependence – You can’t function without the substance.
- Withdrawal – You have physical and psychological symptoms when you try to stop using the substance.
There’s no single cause of addiction. It often starts with experimentation, when you take a drug or use a substance for the first time. Your genes, mental health, family, and friends can all play a role in addiction.
What Are Opioids?
Opioids are a type of drug that includes illegal drugs like heroin and legal ones like oxycodone (OxyContin), hydrocodone (Vicodin), and codeine. Opioids work by binding to receptors in your brain and spinal cord. This bond blocks pain signals from traveling to your brain.
Doctors often use opioids to treat pain. They can come in pills, liquids, or injections. Some people who abuse the drugs crush the pills and snort them or mix them with water and inject them.
People who misuse opioids may take more than the prescribed dose, use it more often, or use it differently than intended. This misuse can lead to addiction.
Types of Addictions We Treat in Nashville
Detoxing from Opioids
If you’re addicted to opioids, the first step in treatment is detoxification. This period is when your body cleanses itself of the drug. During detox, you may experience withdrawal symptoms like:
- Muscle aches
- Trouble sleeping
Detoxing from opioids can be dangerous, so it’s essential to do it under medical supervision. That way, you can ensure you’re safe and comfortable during withdrawal. After you detox, you’ll be able to focus on the next steps in treatment.
