When to seek morphine addiction treatment

Morphine works directly on the central nervous system as a depressant, reducing pain signals or stopping them entirely from reaching the brain. Its use also encourages the production of feel-good chemicals in the brain. This is what makes the user feel good whilst providing very effective pain relief. As with all controlled medications, morphine does come with unpleasant side effects. The side effects of morphine can become particularly problematic when the drug is used for prolonged periods of time. Morphine rehab at Delamere can provide those suffering from a morphine addiction with a second chance at life. It is important to remember that a prescription drug addiction is a progressive disorder and inaction will only reduce the chances of recovery.

If you see the following signs and signals of morphine addiction in yourself or someone you care for it is time to seek morphine addiction help:

  • Obsessive thoughts about obtaining morphine
  • Continued use despite adverse effects
  • Strained relationships and diminished interests
  • Feelings of depression, anxiety, and entrapment
  • Shame, guilt, and persistent cravings
  • Frequent intoxication from morphine
  • Experiencing distinct withdrawal symptoms

“At Delamere, we provide a caring, compassionate, soothing environment to help people change the directions of their lives.”

Dr Catherine Carney
Psychiatrist at Delamere

The Delamere approach to morphine addiction treatment

An inpatient stay at Delamere is a deliberately intensive 4-phase morphine addiction treatment, one which we have crafted over time and has helped many participants recover. Our emphasis is on holistic care to treat addiction and associated issues. This means that we treat the whole person rather than just the symptoms they present with. We believe that successful treatment runs far deeper than simply stopping the addictive substance or behaviour.

Our approach at Delamere comprises 4 core phases: Stop, Start, Grow, & Bloom. Everything we offer at Delamere aims at effective and lasting outcomes in addiction treatment:

  • Stop Icon
    Stage 1: Stop

    This phase addresses any physical aspects of your addiction. Our medical team is on hand 24/7 to ensure a safe and effective withdrawal.

  • Start Icon
    Stage 2: Start

    During ‘Start’ we help identify the psychological underpinnings of your dependency as you participate in a variety of addiction treatment therapies.

  • Grow Icon
    Stage 3: Grow

    Our ‘Grow’ phase is the process of integrating the Delamere learning experience into life after treatment.

  • Bloom Icon (Use)
    Stage 4: Bloom

    Our ‘Bloom’ phase offers intensive support on a weekly basis for the first three months of recovery once guests return home.

How to encourage a loved one to get morphine addiction treatment

Morphine addiction can have disastrous consequences for both the active user and those around them.

Frequently asked questions about morphine addiction

Is morphine addiction dangerous?

In 2019 there were significant concerns raised by the public media about the overprescribing of addictive opiate drugs. Public Health England (PHE) revealed there had been more than a 60% increase in prescriptions issued for opioid drugs over the past decade. Many of these prescriptions were for morphine. This has led to the government placing prominent warning labels regarding addiction to all opiate drugs.

Morphine is an addictive prescription drug and its dependency will only worsen over time. Seeking help as early as possible will give you the best chance of recovery.

How can you tell if someone is abusing morphine?

As well as the signs and symptoms of morphine addiction there are distinct signs of morphine abuse you may be able to identify if you are concerned about a loved one. These include:

  • Appearing drunk.
  • Slurred, slow, or delayed speech.
  • Nodding in and out of sleep.
  • Pinpoint pupils.
  • Reduced respiratory rate, slow or shallow breathing.
