Opiate withdrawals are the result of abstaining from opiate-related drugs after a duration of use or abuse. Opiate-related drugs bind to opiate receptors in the brain that release pleasure chemicals. After so long, the body becomes accustomed to the opiates and will react by creating withdrawal symptoms if opiates are not administered on a regular basis at the usual or even higher doses. Withdrawal symptoms from opiates can become unpleasant, especially if the client has been administering large doses of opiate-related medication on a frequent basis.

Symptoms of Opiate Withdrawals

Opiate WithdrawalsSymptoms that may arise from opiate withdrawals may include, but not limited to, muscle fatigue, dizziness, nausea, drowsiness, irritable bowels, diarrhea, headache, fever, chills, sweating, dehydration and many other symptoms may also present themselves. In extreme cases, opiate withdrawal can lead to other serious health complications.

There are a number of ways to help remedy opiate withdrawal symptoms; however, clients should not expect results to be the same for everyone. In some cases, natural remedies may not be a feasible option, as everyone’s body and body metabolism differ significantly. A treatment that works well for one person might not work too well or at all for someone else. A tip to remember is that the average time span for detoxing from opiates is three to five days. Again, everyone has a different body metabolism, so it may differ a day or two for some people.
