Opioid Use Disorder
Opioid use disorder is a complicated illness that causes people to use opioid drugs even when they want to stop or when doing so hurts their physical and emotional health. Opioids can be prescribed by a doctor to treat pain, but taking opioids, whether they are legally prescribed or not, can cause an opioid use disorder and in the United States, OUD is a major public health problem. Drug overdoses killed more than 800,000 Americans between 1999 and 2020.
What Causes the Addiction to Opioids?
Most of the time, opioids relieve pain and make some people feel euphoric, which is a feeling of being in a great, happy mood. If you feel happy after taking opioids, this could be a sign that you could become addicted to them. Even people who are taking opioids as prescribed by their doctor can feel this way.
When someone first starts to have an opioid use disorder, they may take an opioid drug because it makes them feel good. Over time, the good feelings get less and less, known as tolerance. People who are addicted to opioids may take them more often or in higher doses to feel good again or, as the condition gets worse, to avoid withdrawal symptoms.
Symptoms of Opioid Use Disorder
Opioid use disorder is characterized by the following symptoms and more:
- Physical dependence – If someone were to stop taking the drugs, they would experience withdrawal symptoms such as cravings and sweating
- Increasingly heavy and unhealthy use – A person with this disorder is unable to control their use of opioids and the behavior they exhibit when getting more drugs starts to interfere with their daily lives and relationships
- Cravings – Overwhelming physical and emotional urges to take the drug, even if they understand the consequences to their health
- Other alerting signs someone needs help include:
- Changes in sleep
- Weight loss
- Frequent flu-like symptoms
- Decreased libido
- Lack of personal hygiene
- Changes in physical activity habits
- Isolating themselves from family and friends
- Stealing from family, friends, or businesses
- New financial difficulties
Does Opioid Addiction Treatment Work?
Yes! How well the therapy works for people with substance use disorder depends on the person and how bad the disorder is. Having problems at the same time, like drinking too much alcohol or having a mental illness, can make it harder to get better. Here at Recovery Connection, it is our Mission to guide you back to your normal life.
If a person has both a mental health disorder and a substance use disorder, they may need a treatment plan that addresses both, which is why we offer medication-assisted treatment. The person’s environment and the fact that they have family and friends who can help them can also be important. Some people will need to continue therapy after resolving their addiction, and that is okay, here at Recovery Connection, we offer continued services even after the addiction is in the past.
