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.
