Providing Answers and Hope for Opiate Addiction
Starting the process of recovery from opiate addiction can be challenging, in large part because of the element of physical addiction that is present. Heroin or opioid painkiller addiction are hard to face, but given the extraordinary rise in rates of opiate use in the United States in recent years, they must be confronted head on. This book is both a comprehensive look at the opiate epidemic and a guide to recovery from addiction to opiates.
Starting with a definition of opiates and overview of various types (heroin, painkillers, etc.) the book thoroughly explains why addiction to these types of substances is unique and why it can be such a challenging habit to kick. There is also a great deal of information about why people turn to opiates and the very real dangers associated with their use. The author then goes on to outline the most common methods used for detoxification from opiates, as well as options for inpatient and outpatient drug rehabilitation treatment.
Written in a non-judgmental and easy to understand style, Taite Adams draws on research and on her personal experiences as a recovering addict to create a guide that anyone touched by opiate addiction can benefit from. For family members and loved ones of active addicts, familiarity with the facts, history and causes of addiction can be a real help in gaining a better understanding of the tremendous struggle of addiction. For those struggling with addiction themselves, there is a great deal of information about the disease of opiate addiction, as well as a great deal of hope for long term recovery.
