Morphine Detox Program
What is Morphine?
Morphine is a natural opioid drug that comes from the opium poppy plant. Morphine has been relied on to treat medical conditions that cause moderate to severe pain since the early 1800s. Morphine is typically formulated as a type of sulfate, which allows for it to be absorbed quickly in the body. There are two formulas that Morphine is available in: long and short-acting Morphine. When a person experiences acute pain from a severe injury, invasive surgery, or other traumatic medical condition, short-acting morphine is prescribed.
Long-acting morphine is reserved for chronic pain conditions, such as cancer, management of palliative/end-of-life care, ongoing musculoskeletal pain, abdominal pain, chest pain, arthritis, and migraine headaches. Long-acting Morphine is used to help manage pain 24 hours a day. Morphine must be prescribed by a medical doctor and is available in tablets, capsules, oral liquids, suppositories, and injections that are only completed in a hospital setting or emergency room.

Identifying Morphine Addiction
A common misconception about the drug Morphine is that it is not as addictive as other potent opiates because it is most commonly obtained from a doctor. The National Institute on Drug Abuse clarifies how all opioids can cause addiction regardless of whether they come from a doctor or not.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse:
Opioid pain relievers are generally safe when taken for a short time and as prescribed by a doctor, but because they produce euphoria in addition to pain relief, they can be misused (taken in a different way or a larger quantity than prescribed, or taken without a doctor’s prescription). Regular use—even as prescribed by a doctor—can lead to dependence and, when misused, opioid pain relievers can lead to addiction, overdose incidents, and deaths. (NIDA)
Morphine is a potent opioid drug, and it is responsible for initiating addiction in persons who have never been addicted to a drug or alcohol before. People who become addicted to Morphine very likely were prescribed it while in the hospital or emergency room. Many people who are addicted to heroin and or prescription pain killers are also likely to come across Morphine.
Morphine has a well-known reputation among substance abusers as being an intoxicating opiate drug. However, since Morphine is more easily attained from a doctor versus on the street, many people who are addicted to morphine will begin to go doctor shopping to get more morphine. Doctor shopping is when a person sees more than one doctor get a drug. They will deceive their physicians on why they need Morphine so they can retain as many current prescriptions as possible.
Common Signs of Morphine Addiction include:
Other indicators that someone has become addicted to Morphine are unemployment, missing school, criminal arrests, avoiding family and friends, appearing tired and sleepy a lot, low self-care routines(not showering, or cleaning the house), and denying how much morphine they are using.
Morphine Withdrawal Symptoms
Morphine withdrawal symptoms can begin as soon as a few hours after taking Morphine. The withdrawal symptoms that Morphine addiction causes are usually quite severe. Attempting to detox from Morphine without medications and medical supervision is never recommended. Symptoms can cause dehydration from diarrhea and vomiting, irregular heartbeat, unconsciousness, and the risk for relapse, and accidental overdose is urgent. The amount of time it will take a person to detox Morphine from their system is dependent on how long and how much morphine they were using. Their history of Morphine use will also indicate how severe their withdrawal symptoms will be.
