What is Morphine?
Morphine is an extremely powerful and addictive painkiller. Part of the opiate drug family, some former heroin abusers will even inject themselves with morphine to experience a similar high. Morphine is classified as an opiate narcotic, which means the drug is extremely addictive. Physical and psychological dependence can occur after just one use. Abusers quickly develop an intense craving for morphine. Without medical supervision, attempts to quit or detox typically fail. Even after morphine’s most powerful side effects have faded, addicts may continue to experience confusion, paranoia, anxiety and other psychological disorders.
Morphine addiction can devastate families and tear relationships apart. Without a successful intervention and drug rehabilitation, morphine addicts will be unable to quit abusing morphine on their own. The withdrawal symptoms are extremely painful while the psychological desire for more morphine is extremely powerful. This makes it difficult for many addicts to quit without medical assistance. Physical withdrawal symptoms include insomnia, nausea, diarrhea, chills, and muscle spasms. Leg spasms may become so severe that addicts experience pain deep in their bones. These symptoms typically last 48 to 96 hours after morphine is last abused. However, the psychological need and physical craving for the drug continues to haunt and tempt morphine addicts to use again. This desire lasts long after the physical withdrawal symptoms have passed.
Morphine relapse rates are relatively high in comparison to other drugs relapse rates. A powerful opiate, quitting morphine is a tremendous challenge. Physical, psychological and environmental triggers must be addressed during a drug treatment program.
