How to detox from opiates at home

There are several ways one can choose to detox from drugs; for example, one could go to a rehab and be comfortably detoxed by a staff of trained professionals where they use medications to help you with the withdrawal symptoms.

Then there is the more personal way I am going to discuss with everyone today which is how to detox from opiates at home. This will require a lot of courage and a little help from a friend and a higher power would not be bad either.


Getting through Opiate withdrawal

With this method you can quit using opiates in the comfort of your own home that’s right you can lay in bed and watch TV or do what ever you want. There is a price to pay and that is called opiate withdrawal. This is to be expected because we can not use pills or any other substance like heroin for any length of time and expect not to suffer a little for the fun we thought we were having while we were using.

How to overcome opiate addiction

So if you want to know how to beat opiate addiction keep reading. First thing would be to a couple of days before you intend to stop using opiates that you stay awake until the day you intend to stop. The idea behind this grueling ordeal is that it will help you to sleep through the worst part of your withdrawal from opiates. Nest thing to do is get rid of any paraphernalia that will remind you of using like empty pill containers and what not.

What you will want to do after this is to invite a friend or a loved one to stay with you while you detox they can be there for moral support should you happen to want to give up and go use again. This will also help you to realize that someone cares enough to be there by your side during your detox from opiates. This is great and should improve your chances of actually making it because most give up before they are anywhere near completing there detox. Ok now I would go to the local pharmacy and pick up some Motrin they are good for muscle cramps as well as headaches.

Finally you should purchase some Benadryl this will help you to sleep. I believe this was the only way to kick opiates back in the day before all of the newfangled rehabs we now have.This should pretty much do it now all that is left is for you to do it.

At home opiate detox

Many people try an at home opiate detox but few actually make it to get any kind of recovery those that do make it have a very solid opiate addiction recovery plan in place. So basically if you want to enjoy the freedom from active addiction I suggest that you put a plan into effect real soon.

I like to recommend addiction therapy to all those who are working an honest program and it does not hurt to attend NA meetings at the same time. The more you incorporate into your addiction recovery plan the more benefits  you will receive.

Good luck

    1. Hi Angel

      I would taper myself off of them slowly. Not sure how much you are taking so I am in the dark here but the idea is to decrease your dosage a bit each day you should be able to tell if you are trying to go to fast. I would get some over the counter meds to help you to sleep like Melatonin.

      There are a couple more that may help also one is Valerian Root and the other is St Johns Wort. Another thing I would suggest is to drink a lot of fluids to flush your system out, when ever I went to rehab they always gave me Gatorade it helps build up depleted electrolytes.

      Good luck
