Opioid Addiction Treatment
AppleGate Recovery offers treatment and counseling for opioid dependency in Sugar Land, TX.
Opioids, such as Vicodin®, heroin, or oxycodone, bind to the receptors in your brain when they are used. This effect produces a euphoric, or “high” feeling by releasing dopamine which makes you feel good. Opioids are easily addictive since the brain quickly adjusts to the surges in dopamine, and addiction can develop after just one use. Once addiction begins, it becomes increasingly harder to stop taking the drugs. The body develops a tolerance which increases the amount of drugs required to reach the same feeling of initial euphoria. This can easily lead to a dangerous cycle as the user takes more and more of the drug in an attempt to get relief.
