What is Morphine?

Morphine is an opiate that is derived from the opium poppy plant. It’s a powerful pain management tool. However, it is also abused because it provides the user with a euphoric high. Side effects of taking morphine include sedation and muscle relaxation. Taking too much morphine can cause depressed breathing, coma, and even death. Morphine can be injected, swallowed, or smoked.

Morphine Detox

Morphine is an opiate, which means that clients must complete supervised medical detox. All clients in the morphine detox program will be monitored around the clock by our superb team of doctors and nurses. Doctors will prescribe necessary medications to ensure that all of our clients in the morphine detox program are healthy and safe during their detox. Morphine detox typically lasts 7 to 10 days, but it may last longer depending on how long and how frequently morphine was abused. During detox, clients will be able to relax in their private or semi-private bedrooms. We allow cell phones, laptops, iPods, and other electronic devices because we want to minimize the disruption of completing detox. We employ an amazing chef who can customize each client’s meal plan to fit their dietary needs and concerns. We also offer a full line of exclusive IV vitamins, tablets, and nutritional supplements for all of our clients. We understand that morphine is highly addictive and we’re proud of you for taking the first step. We employ a full staff of addiction counselors, many who are currently in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. There is always someone there for our clients when they need to talk. We also offer a full spectrum of holistic treatments for clients who wish to try an alternative approach, in addition to taking their doctor-prescribed medication.

These holistic treatments include:

  • Aromatherapy – We use essential oils which may improve mood, overall health, and cognitive functioning.
  • Yoga – Originating in ancient India, the practice of yoga is very popular around the world. At our center, clients can explore their inner thoughts and feelings through the medium of yoga.
  • Acupuncture – Traditionally a Chinese medicine, acupuncture uses needles to stimulate certain parts of the body. We’ve adjusted this practice to also include laser-point for those who were previously IV drug abusers.
  • Massage therapy – Everyone loves a relaxing massage! We only employ licensed and experienced massage therapists at our center. This therapy is definitely a must try.
  • Meditation – This practice helps you to find inner peace and a greater sense of well-being. After dealing with the chaos of drug and alcohol addiction, many clients find that meditation helps them to stay focused in recovery.
