Opiate or opioid detox involves withdrawal symptoms that are curable but dangerous if not taken care of properly. Opioids are a category of psychoactive substances that include drugs like heroin, codeine, hydromorphone hydrochloride, morphine, oxycontin, and methadone. However, chronic use of these drugs can result in the development of an incapacitating form of dependence in its users. Besides, opioid dependence impacts the drug user. It hence imposes a significant economic burden on society by increasing unemployment rates, absenteeism, health care costs, and premature mortality.
