Painkiller & Opioid Treatment in Orange County

Painkillers are used for medicinal purposes following a surgery or to relieve a chronic pain. Individuals frequently become addicted to painkillers after a serious injury, when they are prescribed a pain reliever and no longer have the supervision or control they would have at a medical facility.

Though many different forms of prescription pain medications exist, an addiction to any of them may lead to a very serious addiction that can also yield a very serious withdrawal. Individuals suddenly going without their prescription pain reliever can experience excruciating physical pain as well as severe mental fatigue, anxiety, and disorientation. All of these symptoms require medical relief, which is what separates our facility from the rest.

Our professionals at Luminance Recovery are trained to work together in treating your loved one’s addiction. Our physicians, psychiatrists, and therapists collaborate for each patient, helping them through the rough phases of prescription painkiller withdrawal, lingering cravings, and confronting the root cause of the addiction.

Highly Addictive Painkillers

Severe chronic pain is perhaps the chief cause for which individuals in our country visit a doctor, and many leave their appointment with a prescription painkiller. As these do wonders for recovering patients, they can become highly addictive when misused. These prescription painkillers include but are not limited to:

  • Morphine
  • OxyContin
  • Demerol
  • Percocet
  • Dilaudid
  • Hydrocodone

Because these drugs are prescribed so regularly to patients across the country, use of them can seem quite normal, making it harder to detect any misuse or abuse. These issues first develop almost always from upping the dosage to one higher than intended by your doctor, and once this progresses, it can be very difficult to kick the habit without professional health.
