Opioid Addiction Treatment
What starts out as a simple prescription medication can spiral into a devastating addiction.
Opioid Addiction Can Happen to Anyone
Opioids are some of the most addictive substances, and they can potentially be found in your medicine cabinet. These prescription medications, when misused, can cause dependency. When this happens, you require stronger, more frequent doses and experience withdrawal symptoms when you fail to get enough.
As a result, anyone can become addicted to opioids, no matter their age, race, or socioeconomic status. Fortunately, Integrative Life Center is here to help. Our Nashville-based opioid addiction treatment program offers a holistic, personalized approach to helping you or a loved one heal from addiction.

What Are Opioids?
Many opioids are prescription medications used to treat chronic, traumatic, and surgical pain. As a central nervous system depressant, opioids create euphoric and calming effects in your body. When used, they prompt your brain to release more dopamine, a pleasurable neurotransmitter. Over time, your brain becomes reliant on the drug to regulate and release more dopamine. That’s why an addiction can so easily occur.
As your dependency on opioids increases, you may start taking dangerous amounts of the drug to fuel your addiction, leading to an overdose. Or you could seek out cheaper, harder alternative drugs like heroin when your prescription runs out.
Some of the most commonly abused prescription drugs requiring opioid rehab include:
- Suboxone and Subutex
Why You May Need Treatment for Opioid Addiction
Often, people who become addicted to opioids have done so through no fault of their own. So how can you know if you’re abusing your prescription drugs? Here are some telltale signs and symptoms:
- Using more than the recommended amount of medication
- Continued use of the medication after the pain has ended
- Working with additional doctors to get more prescriptions
- Using prescriptions meant for others
- Stealing prescriptions or buying them on the street
- Behavior and mood changes
- Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when a dose is missed
