Opium Detoxification & Rehabilitation in Canada

As time goes on, opium addiction takes place and the addict develops an increasing tolerance to the effects of the drug, and more and more of the drug is needed to produce the initial effect of euphoria. Many individuals who suffer from an addiction to opium will eventually get symptoms of withdrawal after years of using opium. There are many types of drug treatment in Canada such as inpatient treatment rehabs, detox programs, and outpatient services.

Opium Effects and Street Names

When first used, opium can give users a feeling of euphoria, extreme calm, or well being. Their troubles may seem unimportant and nothing else really matters, except for the fact that the drug works. However, often, nightmares and hallucinations may come into play when the effects of the drug wear off. This dried form is typically smoked, but can also be eaten. Opium Street Names are Dopium, Dream Gun, Dream Stick.

Opium Dependency and Withdrawals Symptoms

Highly addictive. Individuals with an opium addiction will often need more of the drug to satisfy their need for more. Opium addiction withdrawal symptoms include nausea, sweating, cramps, vomiting, diarrhea, loss of appetite, muscle spasms, depression, anxiety, mood swings, and insomnia.

International illegal trade in opium is relatively rare. Important smuggling groups prefer to refine opium into heroin before shipping to the consumer countries since a given quantity of heroin is worth much more than an equivalent amount of opium. As such, heroin is more profitable, and much stronger, because heroin is made of the principal naturally-occurring psychoactive substance in opium - morphine.
