Recognizing | Opana Addiction

Opana® is approximately 7 times stronger than morphine. It has the same or greater likelihood for causing opiate dependency as any other opiate. Older people tend to metabolize this medication at markedly slower rate and usually have significantly higher levels of oxymorphone in their blood plasma.

Opana® also affects components of the immune system and seriously affect the motility and wave action in the duodenum and large intestines respectively. This accounts for significant constipation.

This drug is especially addictive. It is only prescribed for acute pain. It is a highly valued drug in the illicit drug trade.

This is a relatively obscure drug in the illicit drug trade but in certain regions of the country it is readily available at relatively high prices. It is also known as the rich man’s opiate.

Opana® addiction treatment requires a full system approach to treat the body’s eleven main systems in order to achieve maximum benefit in a relatively short period.


Opana Detox and Withdrawal | What to Expect…

Opana® detox is a fairly simple opiate detox that can be accomplished depending upon average daily dosages and overall health in approximately one to two weeks.

The best case scenario is a 7-day detox for physical opiate withdrawal symptoms management and 10-days for psychological craving detoxification that run concurrently.

The key to a successful Opana detox withdrawal relies on an approach that treats the body’s eleven main systems throughout the detoxification process.

Rapid Opana Suboxone Detox can be a viable option but the psychological detoxification period is unlikely to change with rapid physiological detox. There is no known method for accelerating the psychological adjustment period relative to homeostasis and opiate withdrawals.

In Conclusion:

Regardless of Opana’s relatively obscure place within the opiate abuse population it is still a fast growing opiate addiction that is certain continue its rise as the population ages. The demographic shift from young to old is significant with regards to prescription drug abuse. Many prescription drugs are abused in relation to what is available in home medicine cabinets.
