What To Do When You’re Addicted to Morphine?
You live in Colorado, and maybe you started using morphine in a medical setting to treat legitimate pain, and then over time, you found yourself using more and more of it, and only feeling normal when you’re on it.
Or, maybe you’re someone in Colorado who has always only used morphine without a prescription and recreationally, but you want to break the cycle of drug abuse in your life.
Perhaps you have a loved one who you suspect is addicted to morphine and you want to be able to help them in any way possible.
We can help answer your questions and talk through any concerns.
In any of these scenarios, it can be valuable for you to contact a 24-hour professional morphine hotline. Addiction can lead to feelings of helplessness and powerlessness not just for the addict, but for the people around them.
Combat those feelings by reaching out to our team of addiction experts who can serve as a confidential ear to hear your concerns, and also a resource to connect you or your loved one with local treatment options. The Recovery Village can help provide you with addiction treatment resources whether you live in Boulder, Colorado Springs, Denver or anywhere else in the state.
What Is Morphine?
Morphine is an opiate pain medicine derived from the poppy plant, and it also has a reputation as one of the most widely abused prescription drugs. Morphine is powerful, and it’s intended to treat pain in cancer patients and following major surgeries, but unfortunately, it’s inherently very addictive.
There are physical signs someone is using morphine, as well as lifestyle and behavioral signs that can indicate morphine addiction.
Some of the lifestyle signs of drug addiction include withdrawing from friends, family and responsibilities, declining performance at school or work, and increased secrecy.
People wonder is an addiction to morphine treatable, and if so, how? Yes, there are treatment options for morphine addiction, many of which include inpatient residential treatment. When you call our 24-hour morphine addiction hotline, we can explain the various options used to treat
