Opiate withdrawal is not normally life threatening, but the process can lead to symptoms that are very difficult to manage. Severity of withdrawal symptoms depends on your level of dependence. Breaking your dependency is a vital first step in living a healthier life.
Ask your doctor about Methadone. As a treatment for opiate addiction, methadone reduces the cravings and withdrawal symptoms caused by opiate use. This effect allows people to avoid the physical and psychological highs and lows caused by changing levels of opiates in the blood, decreasing the chance of relapse.
Keep your mind engaged. Try to do things you enjoy to increase your body’s endorphins. This can improve your chances for long-term success.
