Opioid Addiction Treatment

AppleGate Recovery offers treatment and counseling for opioid addiction in Lewisville, TX.

Opioids, refers to the entire family of opiates including: natural, synthetic or semi-synthetic drugs. When you use an opioid, such as Vicodin, heroin, or Oxycodone, they bind to the receptors in your brain that produce a euphoric, or “high”, feeling by releasing dopamine which also makes you feel good. This surge of pleasant feelings can be easily addictive.

What makes opioids particularly difficult to stop is the body’s adjustment to dopamine surges. Eventually, the body develops a tolerance which increases the amount of drugs required to reach the same feeling of euphoria. When you don’t take the opioids, your brain and body go into a state of withdrawal.

At AppleGate Recovery in Lewisville, TX, we offer relief from the cycle of opioid dependence and addiction. We understand that addiction is a disease and treat it as such.
