The prescription drug abuse challenges this country faces today is being fueled by both legal and illegal sources. Addiction to prescription medication is a major contributor to the opioid epidemic, and, in many cases, the medication is prescribed by physicians with good intentions for legitimate reasons. From here, the outcomes are unpredictable because people respond differently to pain medication, specifically how it affects them emotionally. A doctor may prescribe a painkiller for a medical issue (i.e. heart surgery, etc.), and while delivering physical relief, it’s euphoric properties can easily become attractive to someone that is also struggling with emotional issues. If the individual becomes emotionally addicted, when the medical issue is resolved and the doctor stops prescribing the medication, this person will need to find another source of supply, and if not through another doctor, then on the street. When money becomes an issue, as it often does, heroin and fentanyl become a cheaper, but sadly, a more deadly option. Some of the commonly used opioid prescription drugs are oxycodone, Hydrocodone, morphine, Codeine, Methadone, Demerol, Oxymorphone and Carfentanil. These substances are distributed under various other names such as Vicodin, Norco, Lortab, OxyContin, Roxicodone, Percocet, MS Contin, Kadian, Dilaudid, Dolophine and Opana.
The reason we are experiencing so many opioid overdose deaths is because there is no way of knowing the actual potency of a substance purchased illegally. Various street drugs are being laced with Fentanyl or Carfentanil. Fentanyl, due to its small molecular size, is very dangerous because it is easily absorbed through the skin upon contact. Carfentanil, a fentanyl analog is a powerful narcotic developed for use as an anesthetic on large animals. Fentanyl is 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine. Carfentnil is roughly 100 times more potent than Fentanyl, 5000 times more potent than heroin and as much as 10.000 times more potent the morphine.
Our Approach to Drug and Alcohol Rehab
New Life Spirit Recovery uses a holistic approach and specializes in treating the whole person including their physical, emotion and spiritual needs. Before recovery can effectively begin, the prescription drugs need to be cleansed from the body through a process called detoxification. Medicinal assistance is used as needed during detox to help alleviate some of the negative effects of withdrawal. Next, the undealt-with emotional issues that motivate the prescription medication addiction need to be identified and properly processed. If those initial issues are not dealt with, the individual will eventually return to the temporal comfort they once sought through the drug.
We maintain a Christ-centered focus in our drug and alcohol rehab program in Orange County, yet offer the integrity of a professional, clinical setting. Our staff is specialty trained in the area of trauma, rooted issues and relationship dynamics, understanding both the cause and effect that various life events have on addiction cycles. In addition, we offer co-occurring mental health and wellness services under the careful watch of a doctor. This important area of treatment assimilates the physiological processes of the brain and body into an overall Christ-centered approach.
