What is Morphine?
Morphine is an opioid that is most often used to treat moderate to severe pain in the form of a tablet, syrup, or injection. It’s typically associated with pain relief following major surgeries and chronic pain, such as pain related to types of cancers. It’s also administered to patients at the end of their lives to help with shortness of breath. Morphine acts on the central nervous system and is a depressant, much like alcohol and benzodiazepines.
However, morphine is also highly abused for recreational purposes because of the pleasurable effects it can produce, including euphoria, relaxation, and reduced anxiety. It’s also a widely accessible drug—more than 60 percent of all morphine addicts admitted to obtaining the drug from relatives or friends.
People with morphine medications may also accidentally develop addictions over time with misuse. An addiction to morphine typically begins with tolerance, meaning that the user will need increasingly large doses of morphine to feel the same powerful effects. Once tolerance develops, the user may feel powerless to stop using and when they do, unpleasant withdrawal symptoms will take effect.
Signs of Morphine Addiction
There are a variety of signs and symptoms associated with morphine addiction, which can range from psychological symptoms to physical and behavioral signs. If you’re concerned that you’re developing an addiction to your morphine medication or worried about a loved one, it’s important to identify the signs of addiction early so you can seek professional help.
Some signs you or a loved one may have a morphine addiction include:
- You’re preoccupied with using or obtaining more morphine
- You’re continuing to abuse morphine despite knowing that the substance is causing harm to you and those around you
- You’re doctor shopping to obtain multiple morphine prescriptions
- You’re lying or stealing to acquire more of the substance
- You’re concealing your use of morphine, such as by hiding your prescriptions or lying to your loved ones about how much you’re using
- You’re experiencing withdrawal symptoms when you go a period of time without using morphine
Some other physical effects associated with morphine addiction include weight loss from loss of appetite, nausea and dizziness, sleep apnea, dehydration, and low blood pressure.
How to Treat Morphine Addiction
Getting professional help is your best chance of overcoming morphine addiction, especially because attempting to quit on your own without behavioral therapy runs the risk of you potentially relapsing and overdosing, which can lead to dangerous effects like vomiting, and joint pain. Holdfast Recovery offers intensive outpatient (IOP) and partial hospitalization (PHP) programs to meet you where you’re at in your journey and immerse you in treatments and therapy sessions each week.
From individual therapy to group support and relapse management, our team strives to provide you with the resources and care you need to address your addiction, connect with others, and prepare for a successful and happy sober life. Overcoming an opioid addiction such as morphine addiction can be challenging, but our team is here to walk with you as you connect with Christ and rediscover your hope.
