Locating Treatment for Opioid Addiction in Virginia
Opioids, commonly called narcotics, are usually prescribed by medical professionals to manage chronic or persistent pain. They are also used to treat cancer patients and those recovering from surgery. However, some opioids are illegal, being manufactured illicitly. Prescription opioids can be highly beneficial as a short-term pain reliever, but they are highly addictive. This class of drugs encompasses prescription medications such as oxycodone, Vicodin, morphine, illicit substances like Heroin, and manufactured substances such as fentanyl.
Opioid drugs work by binding to opioid receptors in the brain and body, blocking pain messages sent through the nervous system. They are effective in managing pain but only for a limited time. Afterward, users often require larger and more frequent doses to relieve the pain continually. As a result, opioid addiction has become an epidemic, causing opioid-related deaths across the country and Virginia.
Regulatory agencies have sought to reduce opioid prescriptions written by healthcare providers, leading to a decrease in the availability of prescription opioids. Nevertheless, opioid abuse and opioid-related deaths have not decreased nationally or in Virginia. Prescription opioid addiction often leads to the use of replacement substances such as Heroin, which has similar effects on the body. Consequently, heroin use has increased nationwide in the last decade, causing a rise in heroin overdose deaths in Virginia.
Virginia has enacted laws requiring healthcare providers to track narcotic prescriptions through a statewide database management system to prevent doctor shopping, a practice commonly used by those struggling with opioid addiction to obtain multiple prescriptions. These regulations aim to reduce the number of prescription opioid-related deaths in Virginia.

Key Factors to Consider When Choosing an Opioid Rehabilitation Center
Opioids are prescribed to manage pain in the short term, but regular use can result in addiction and tolerance. When you become dependent on opioids, you may experience withdrawal symptoms if you attempt to reduce or stop use. Withdrawal symptoms can occur as quickly as six hours after the last use, and their intensity will depend on several factors, including the duration of use and the severity of addiction.
Withdrawal symptoms range from mild to severe and can include anxiety, body aches, difficulty sleeping, and nausea. It is essential to detox in a safe environment to prevent more severe symptoms such as delirium tremens, irregular heartbeat, and seizures.
When selecting an opioid rehab center, consider the following factors:
- The facility’s safety protocols during detoxification
- The experience of the treatment staff
- The availability of individualized treatment plans
- The range of treatment modalities offered
At Arrowwood Addiction Treatment Center, we provide medically supervised detox services with a team of compassionate professionals who offer support, guidance, and medical care throughout the detox process.
