4 Signs It May Be Time to Visit an Opiate Addiction Treatment Center

Opiate addiction is all too common in the United States. Over 20 million Americans ages 12 and over have an addiction to drugs or alcohol. If you feel that you may have an addiction and are looking for help, consider attending an alcohol addiction or drug treatment detox center. Unfortunately, it can be hard to be self-aware and realize you need professional treatment. Here are some red flags to consider when determining if a detox center is right for you.

Your neglect your personal relationships

Those with alcohol or drug addictions typically pull away from the people they care most about for fear of being judged. Normally these people try to hide their addiction from their family and friends, but if you have been confronted more than once about your problem, then it is time to take action and resolve it. Take notice of these signs as well:

  • You have not been invited to their home in a while.
  • They have avoided you on multiple occasions.
  • Called you out on your drug use.
  • Recommended an opiate addiction facility.

You have driven a car while high or drunk

While it may not seem like that big of a deal to you at the time, driving while intoxicated poses a serious threat to everyone on the roads. Even if you think “I’m not that bad” or “I’m a good driver,” the chemicals in both alcohol and drugs have the ability to change your perception, reaction times, and judgment.

You have used drugs or drank alcohol to feel better

Symptoms of withdrawal can be uncomfortable, and many addicts have been known to use their substance of choice to lessen these symptoms. Preventing withdrawal in this way can potentially cause seizures, heart failure, or sudden death.

All previous attempts at quitting have failed

Going cold turkey on any substance is hard to accomplish by yourself. If you have tried multiple times to quit to no avail, then consider our ibogaine drug treatment program.
