Morphine is a very strong painkiller, and it is an addictive opiate. When it is taken regularly over a period of time it is very easy for a person to become addicted to it.
Is Morphine Addiction Treatment My Next Step?
In the United States of America, Morphine is a Schedule II narcotic under the Controlled Substances Act. Morphine is a non-synthetic narcotic that exhibits a high potential risk for abuse and addiction.
Special care is needed when administering this drug. It is one of the most effective severe pain relievers and is used medicinally every day in this country. However, it is also used recreationally and illicitly in this country every day as well.
Morphine is a seducing drug that numbs pain and can easily lull one into a sense of false security. Often times this combination can lead to a loss of control. It is that one little seemingly insignificant slip that allows the door of addiction to open. Once the door is open, it can be near impossible to close it.
Addiction is defined as a compulsive need to seek and use drugs which thwarts all other needs and activities. The addict will deny basic necessities and needs in an effort to gain access to their drug of choice. Morphine specifically, causes euphoria and relieves any and all pain. Continual abuse of morphine will build a tolerance causing the user to need more of the drug to achieve the same desired result. Physical and psychological dependence are guaranteed with addiction to morphine, making it one of the toughest addictions to overcome.
When you allow addiction to become a part of your life, it may be the last free choice you make. Once you have the addiction, all of your other choices are made by the desire and need to get high. You effectively are a slave to the drug.

Addicts who want to get high will:
- Give up their most prized possessions
- Give up any family who interferes/tries to help
- Give up any friends who try to stop them
- Give up their career or job
- Give up their morals and personal beliefs
Often the euphoric effects only last 3-20 minutes. And the addict gladly gives up EVERYTHING for just that.
Addicts who want to get high will:
- Lose their own will
- Lose their family
- Lose their friends
- Lose their house, car, etc.
- Lose their life (metaphorically and literally)
Addicts eventually give up and lose everything for the high that consumes them.
Overdose is popular amongst morphine addicts. As tolerance builds and control is lost, the likelihood that one will use too much grows greater and greater.

There are avenues of help all around. There are programs and therapies and places that specialize in the care and treatment of addiction. There is no pride to swallow, but there is hope to gain.
Many treatments for the recovery from addiction start with detoxification. This process is usually the most intense physically in the recovery process. Detoxification alone is not sufficient for recovery of addiction. Treatment programs should be personal and keyed in to the exact needs of the addict, in an effort to ensure successful rehabilitation.
In some cases, the addict will also be tested for accompanying or co-existing addictions or conditions which may affect their success in rehabilitation. In the event that a medical condition is found, it can be treated to help manage it while still undergoing the process of recovery from morphine.
Along with detoxification, most addiction recovery programs, will offer and administer behavioral therapies and classes that will help ensure that the addict can handle re-entry into life. These classes and sessions will identify triggers and provide tools in which the addict can overcome/resist the temptation to use again.
Recovering addicts will be encouraged to purge their lives of acquaintances who may not support their newfound resolve against drugs. They will also be encouraged to repair family and friendly relationships that were destroyed because of their addiction. These relationships are often the support that help continue the rehabilitation upon re-entry into “life”. Sometimes family and friends attend classes and seminars to teach them how to support the recovery and help prevent relapse as well.
