Many people ask, “How long will a person experience opioid withdrawal?” As you might suspect, it can depend on the individual and several other factors, such as: the length of time using the substance the substance itself the method of abuse (e. g., snorting, smoking, injecting, or swallowing) the amount taken each time family history and genetic makeup medical and mental health history The body produces natural opiates that control pain, anxiety and depression.
External opiates treat the pain, but over time and prolonged use, the body’s receptors in the brain, the spinal cord and gastrointestinal tracts become desensitized to them and higher dosages are needed to achieve the same effect. The increased consumption creates the dependency on the receptors and when the person stops taking the opiate the body reacts to the lack of the opiate it had been taking. How long does opiate detox take?
