Drug addiction can steal your life away. This is especially true for opiate addiction. Opiates can make one’s brain selfish. When that happens, a person will miss important family engagements, be late for work, call in sick, get arrested and are at risk of dying from an overdose. Most people who do not get help for drugs, complain that they feel sick and tired of feeling sick and tired.
The way to recover to have a normal life is to first, identify that in fact you do have a problem; second, set out to do something positive about it. After all, how can you recover your life, if you don’t admit that there is a problem with it?
The best way to recover your normal life with opiate addiction treatment is treatment. Excellent treatment is currently available for Opiate Use Disorder. These include what are known as substitution treatments, like with the medication Buprenorphine, as well as with antagonist or blocking treatments like for example the medication Naltrexone. Both are equally effective and are well tolerated. Individuals who engage in treatment for their opiate addiction will live longer.
On the other hand, individuals who do not seek treatment for opiate addiction do not live as long, wind up in jail or treatment and are generally not happy with their lives. Because some folks either don’t believe they really have a problem or because some think that treatment won’t work for them; most of those with Opiate Use Disorder never enter into treatment for their condition.
