Morphine is a powerful opioid analgesic, one generally used for the treatment of moderate severe pain in a professional medical setting. Because this specific chemical substance has such a high risk of misuse, it is typically only administered under the care of a medical professional in a hospital setting. A study published in the Journal of Neurotrauma titled, Analgesia or Addiction?: Implications for Morphine Use after Spinal Cord Injury examines the high potential for misuse that this specific opioid medication has. The study concludes that the use of morphine can result in paradoxical pain, which leads to continuous administration and ultimately tolerance, dependence and addiction. Morphine addiction occurs very quickly because the chemical substance is so highly potent. Once an individual develops a physical and psychological dependence on this specific opioid drug, they must enter into a medical detox program as the first step on the road to long-term recovery.
At CuraWest we have extensive experience treating people of all ages and walks of life who have been suffering at the hands of a morphine addiction for any length of time. Our private, homestyle detox facility offers a level of comfort and clinical care that can not be found in any state-run facility or traditional hospital setting. We believe that no two addictive disorders are the same, therefore no two programs of detoxification should be identical. Our detox program is integrated and highly individualized. We understand that what works for one client might not work as well for another. One of our core objectives is to consistently put the safety and well-being of each individual client first.
The U.S. National Library of Medicine suggests that morphine is an opioid analgesic that will only be prescribed to treat moderate to severe pain — it is extremely uncommon that a medical professional would prescribe this medication to treat mild pain, seeing as it is so habit-forming and potentially dangerous to use. Morphine comes in two forms – in an extended-release pill or capsule, or as a liquid. The oral solution is generally taken every four, eight or twelve hours (or as needed) for pain, and will only be used in the treatment of severe, chronic pain-related disorders that cannot be successfully treated with any other opioid pain medication.
In short, morphine is typically considered a “last resort,” and is only utilized when all other treatment methods have failed. In its liquid form, this medication is even more potent. In the vast majority of instances, liquid morphine will only be administered in a hospital setting in cases of acute and severe pain, such as pain related to cancer treatment, surgical procedures or severe accidents.

Morphine Addiction – Signs and Symptoms
When it comes to morphine addiction, there are a wide range of physical, psychological and behavioral symptoms to keep an eye out for. Because morphine is used in a medical setting, it can sometimes be difficult to determine whether or not an individual is suffering at the hands of a dependency disorder. If you are unsure as to whether or not your loved one is suffering from morphine abuse or addiction, you are welcome to give one of our experienced Treatment Advisors a call at any time. They will walk you through signs and symptoms of abuse while helping you determine which treatment option will be the most beneficial and helping you develop a plan of action.
The more common symptoms of morphine addiction include:
- Impaired mental functioning and performance
- An inability to focus on any one thing for any extended period of time
- A psychological preoccupation with obtaining and using the drug
- Continued morphine use despite the accumulation of personal consequences
- Lying about morphine use or being deceitful in order to hide use
- Hiding morphine around the house for fear that it will be found or confiscated by loved ones
- Doctor shopping, meaning making numerous appointments with numerous different practitioners in hopes of obtaining more than one morphine prescription at a time
- Decreased appetite, which can lead to significant and noticeable weight loss
- The building of a tolerance, meaning that more morphine will be required in order for the same results to be produced
- Withdrawal symptoms when use is abruptly ceased
Our Morphine Detox Services Include
The symptoms of morphine withdrawal can be extremely uncomfortable if not thoroughly treated in a medically monitored detox facility. At CuraWest we ensure a pain-free detox while actively setting a solid foundation upon which our clients can continue building their recovery. Once clients have been physically stabilized, they have the option of transitioning into the residential portion of our treatment program, where they will continue their personal journeys of recovery and learn how to stand on their own two feet as sober individuals.
Morphine Withdrawal – Signs and Symptoms
As is the case with other opioid narcotics, the symptoms of morphine withdrawal are not generally life-threatening when they are being professionally treated in a medical setting. However, withdrawal symptoms can prove to be dangerous when not overseen 24-hours a day. At CuraWest, we provide each individual client with around-the-clock care. Comfort is our top priority, and our team of experienced professionals works tirelessly to ensure a consistently pain-free detox experience.
Symptoms of morphine withdrawal include:
- Muscle aches and severe muscle cramping
- Gastrointestinal complications like nausea, vomiting and diarrhea
- Extreme anxiety, which can lead to persistent panic attacks
- Depression and feelings of deep and unshakeable sadness
- Flu-like symptoms, such as a runny nose, watery eyes and a low-grade fever
- Insomnia and other sleep-related issues, such as persistent nightmares
- Increased blood pressure
- Rapid heart beat, which can lead to heart palpitations

Why is Medical Detox Necessary?
When it comes to morphine misuse and addiction, medical detox will always be a necessary first step on the long-term road to recovery. This is predominantly because detox methods will vary so significantly on a person-to-person basis. In some cases, the most beneficial method of morphine detoxification will be Medication Assisted Treatment — in other cases, it will be tapering (slowly reducing the amount of morphine present in a client’s system until it is completely eliminated). The most effective method of detox will be determined during an in-depth, individualized assessment, which is conducted by our team of prescribing physicians, addiction specialists and licensed therapists upon admission.
Whenever we deem MAT necessary to the overall morphine detox experience, we will typically administer comfort medications which have proven extremely successful in the treatment of morphine withdrawal symptoms. These medications cannot be administered in a home setting, thus medical detox is necessary. In order for medical detox to be truly effective, it should be immediately followed by a transition into the next appropriate level of clinical care. If a client chooses, they have the option of moving into the residential portion of our program as soon as they have been physically stabilized.
