Opioid Addiction and Our Nation
The Opioid Bill has been in effect since 2018, although opioid addiction has only recently been declared a National Public Health Emergency.
Opioids are a synthetic version of opium, which is a natural plant intended for pain management.
Unfortunately, due to the addictive nature of oxycodone or “oxy,” the opioid epidemic has claimed millions’ lives by illicit use and over-prescription.
The Opioid Package passed by the Senate aims to reduce opioid prescriptions as well as closely monitor those who are prescribing them.
If you suspect that you or a loved one struggles with opioid addiction, Resurgence Behavioral Health can help.

Facing the Opioid Addiction Epidemic
Opioid use has killed millions of Americans, forcing the Senate to take drastic measures.
In 2018, Congress passed the Substance Use-Disorder Prevention that Promotes Opioid Recovery and Treatment for Patients and Communities Act.
This legislation introduced over 70 bills by both the Republican and Democratic parties, making opioid addiction a bipartisan issue.
This package intends to increase access to treatment, expand alternative pain management options, and identify best practices to address prescription pills misuse https://www.chcf.org/blog/the-660-page-opioids-bill-is-now-the-law-heres-whats-in-it/.

Understanding Opioid Addiction
According to the Department of Health and Human Services, we are in the midst of a severe opioid overdose epidemic. More than 750,000 people have died since opioids appeared on the market in 1999, with over 47,000 reported deaths since 2018 https://www.cdc.gov/drugoverdose/data/index.html. “Oxy” addiction has become increasingly dangerous, with higher numbers of lethal overdoses reported every year. At Resurgence Behavioral Health, we seek to understand the reason for your opioid addiction as not all clients are the same. Whether you have an addiction due to chronic pain or are chasing a high, our professionals have a treatment plan for you. Opioid addiction is one of the leading causes of death in our country, so we take every measure necessary to change these figures.
Effects of Opioid Addiction
This brand of prescription pills initially helped with pain management before opioid addiction became an epidemic. However, once they became available, people started abusing them almost immediately due to over-prescription. Your opioid addiction may have come through no fault of your own. You may be one of the millions who live with and suffer through chronic pain. While these drugs may temporarily relieve the problem, the risk of opioid addiction can be lethal. You may feel trapped by dependence as your body may not know how else to function without them. At Resurgence Behavioral Health, we are experts at detoxifying you safely and finding alternatives to crippling opioid addiction.
“Oxy” Addiction and Abuse
Because of the pleasant side effects of “oxy” addiction, opioid abuse is a dangerous and often tricky habit to kick. Once you realize you are addicted, it may be too late and hazardous to stop taking prescription pills on your own! Some of the side effects of critical opioid addiction vary from mild to deadly. Lethargy, slurred speech, poor coordination, and constipation are common side effects of opioid addiction as prescription pills decrease bodily functions. More severe opioid addiction consequences include heart attacks, shallow breathing, loss of consciousness, slowed heart rate, and, ultimately, a lethal overdose https://www.drugabuse.gov/publications/drugfacts/prescription-opioids. With euphoria being one of the favored side effects of prescription pills, users will try everything to continue fueling an opioid addiction. Those suffering from an “oxy” addiction doctor shop, buy street drugs, or find other drug variations to maintain a high.
Is an Opioid Addiction Destroying Your Mental Health?
It is not uncommon for someone suffering from opioid addiction to have a dual diagnosis of mental health disorders. Undiagnosed mental conditions and the short-term and long-term effects of “oxy” addiction can affect your brain chemistry. There are many successful treatments available for opioid addiction at Resurgence Behavioral Health, including medication-assisted treatment. These medications help with the physical and psychological discomforts of withdrawal and block the euphoric effects of opioids by modifying the brain’s chemistry https://www.psychiatry.org/patients-families/addiction/opioid-use-disorder/opioid-use-disorder. When receiving dual diagnosis care for opioid addiction, our mental health specialists will evaluate your psychological dependence level. Your mental wellness is our top priority, and our healthcare professionals will utilize every means necessary to bring you back to health.
