What Are Opioids?
Opioids are a category of drugs that come from the poppy plant or a synthetic version of the poppy plant. Opioids include heroin synthesized from the poppy plant and synthetic opioids like fentanyl. Many people have a prescription for oxycodone, hydrocodone, codeine, morphine, and more but do not realize those are also opioids.

What Causes Opioid Addiction?
Addiction is complicated, and medical professionals agree that there is no single cause of opioid addiction. However, a handful of risk factors can increase your likelihood of developing an addiction if you use opioids. The more of these risk factors you have, the more likely you will struggle with addiction.
Your upbringing and the environment in which you live can lead to addiction. If you grew up in a home where you were exposed to violence, abuse, systemic poverty, or drug use, that stress changed the size and function of your brain. It made the part of the brain that likes instant rewards and drug use more significant and the part of the brain that helps you regulate and be responsible smaller.
Even your current environment might mean that you need to check into an opioid drug rehab center for treatment. If you have a partner, live in a home, or your family abuses drugs or alcohol, you might normalize that behavior.
Studies indicate that exposure to trauma at any age can cause brain changes, making it more likely you will become addicted to drugs and alcohol if you use them. What is more, people with undiagnosed or untreated trauma are more likely to self-medicate to try and cope with symptoms.
Personal history of drug use or alcoholism can also cause structural changes to your brain that make you more susceptible to addiction moving forward. If you abused multiple substances in the past, if you are using more than one substance now, if you have tried South Florida addiction treatment and it did not work—and you had a relapse—we need to know all of that information because it contributes to a higher risk of addiction. That is why we ask about your current drug use or previous drug use when you come to our opioid rehab center.
During an assessment at our South Florida opioid drug rehab center, we will ask you about any history of mental illness in your family as well as yourself and any current mental illness with which you might struggle.
Something as simple as a depressive disorder can increase the likelihood of substance abuse. Nearly half of people with substance abuse problems also have depression or anxiety. Understanding your current mental health helps us determine whether programs like dual diagnosis are best for your situation. Dual diagnosis is a rehab program that treats the mental illness at the same time as opioid addiction.
If you visit an opioid rehab center in South Florida, we will also ask about your family history of mental illness and substance abuse. Even if you were not exposed to it directly, a family history of substance abuse might indicate a genetic predisposition to things like opioid addiction.
What Are the Signs of an Opioid Addiction?
Knowing whether you need South Florida opioid drug rehab can be challenging because certain signs or symptoms of addiction, in isolation, can be attributed to many other circumstances or situations. However, it is time to get help when multiple signs are present.
Common opioid abuse signs include the following:
- Uncontrollable cravings
- Not being able to control opioid consumption
- Having multiple prescriptions from the same doctor or numerous doctors
- Changes in exercise, weight, appetite, social behavior, and family interactions
- Problems with relationships
- Decreased libido
- Financial troubles or legal problems
- Lack of hygiene
If you or someone you love is showing signs of opioid addiction, Atlantic Recovery Center can help you find the proper treatment today at our top-rated drug and alcohol treatment center in Davie, FL.
How Do Opioids Impact the Brain?
Opioids interact with opioid receptors inside your nerve cells. These opioid receptors block pain signals and produce a “high.” So, when you take any opioid, whether it is heroin or a prescription, it stops pain and makes you happy. That is why it is commonly prescribed as a pain medication. Unfortunately, it is also highly addictive.
Opioids are so effective at making you feel good that you end up feeling better than you would under normal circumstances like exercising, having sex, or achieving a good milestone at work. By interfering with your regular reward system, it does not take long before you need addiction treatment.
