Opiate withdrawal reactions are very uncomfortable but are not life threatening. Symptoms usually start within 12 hours of last heroin usage and within 30 hours of last methadone exposure. It is very important that a person has the care of professionals when trying to come off of opiates. At any second they can decide that the pain and discomfort is not worth it and chose to go back to doing their drug
All natural rehab centers are the best choice. It is not a good idea to put the person on another drug to help them get off of the one that they are addicted to. Their bodies will be sorely misused and maltreated after prolonged periods of doing the drug they are addicted to. They need many vitamins, minerals and supplements to help their bodies repair the damage they have done. They also need help to get them out of their head. They no doubt have depleted the serotonin in their brains and will be very depressed and emotional. They also will have to face all of the things they have done as a result of their addiction for the first time sober. This is going to be very hard for them because they have been in a mentally intoxicated state for so long and have not had to deal with or realize their problems.
People may have started doing their drug for many different reasons, but the fact remains that they most likely keep doing it for the same reason. They do not want to face having an opiate withdrawal. Understanding this is the first step to getting them help and guiding them to a successful recovery.
