An addiction to opioids can involve many hurdles that an individual must overcome in order to successfully break free from the dangerous cycle of substance abuse. Once addicted to opioids such as heroin or prescription painkillers, many will feel as if every aspect of life revolves around acquiring and using more of their drug or drugs of choice. Relationships that were once important begin to diminish, job loss becomes a reality due to poor performance at work, and financial stressors begin to arise. In addition to the social failures associated with addiction, individuals are often faced with the detrimental physical health risks that accompany opioid abuse. If left untreated, fatality due to overdose is also a possibility.
However, help is available. By taking part in the treatment provided by Western Michigan Comprehensive Treatment Center, patients are provided with the support and guidance that is necessary in order to successfully achieve recovery.
