Opiate drug detoxification and withdrawal can bring about a wide range of symptoms that occur after stopping or dramatically reducing opiate drugs after heavy and prolonged use.

Opiate drugs are pain killers and pain relievers. They're often referred to as narcotics. They include heroin and morphine as well as the prescribed medications codeine, Oxycontin, Vicodin, Dilaudid and Percocet.

Opiate detox treatment may involve taking a substitute medication such as methadone or Suboxone which blocks the highs and reduces cravings.

Opiate Detox programs may form part of a facility's Medication-Assisted Treatment program.

For some addicts, the beginning of treatment is detoxification which is a controlled and medically supervised withdrawal from the drug. While this is not a solution in itself (most addicts need additional help) it is a beginning. The withdrawal symptoms experienced are not life-threatening.
