What Do Centers Use For Tramadol Detox?

Many drug addicts have first found themselves addicted to a gateway drug like Tramadol. This synthetic opiate is all too easy for you to become addicted to unintentionally. Here we will look at the important questions you have on what Tramadol is, what the addiction is like, what the symptoms of withdrawal are, and how detox centers treat it.

What is Tramadol?

Tramadol is a synthetic opiate that works like codeine on the brain of an adult. It is utilized to help treat moderately severe to moderate levels of pain for adults. Addiction to Tramadol proves to be a both a dangerous social and medical issue in America today.

About Tramadol Addiction

Overdose of Tramadol turns out to be more common than you might at first imagine. As it is a frequently abused opioid, as many as 4.5 million Americans abused such pain killing medication like Tramadol back in 2013. The statistics are likely getting worse (and not better) with time. This data comes from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration.

There is a maximum level that doctors suggest you take of Tramadol. This is 400 milligrams per day for those who are aged 17 years old and older adults. Most using individuals will consume significantly lower amounts of this to 200 milligrams each day. Even accidentally exceeding the 400 milligrams per day is construed as a possible overdose.

Your overdose limit varies according to your particular body. It also comes down to how frequently or for how long you took the opiates. You might have a higher toleration for Tramadol than others. Regardless of this, it will dull pain by inhibiting your body’s nervous system and be poison to other parts of your body like your liver.

Many people find the drug under another name Ultram. Unfortunately, this is one of the most easy to obtain, highly addictive, and greatly abused drugs on the market nowadays. It does require your physician to write you a prescription, but you can more simply purchase it online. This gives you all too easy access to it once you become an addict. Legitimate medical reasons for taking Tramadol are to handle the pain from arthritis, fibromyalgia caused by injuries, and pain following surgeries.

Unfortunately for millions of Americans like you, Tramadol is extremely effective as well as highly addictive. All opioids have this effect of making you both psychologically and physically dependent on them. Because the risk of overdose is so very high, you should not take in excess of the 400 milligram maximum daily amount.

Taken in larger does than this, Tramadol can decrease your ability to breath, increasing the shallowness and infrequency of each breath. Used in concert with other medications, this can be dangerous. Countless instances of seizures have come from mixing Tramadol in a cocktail with other painkillers or drugs. Fatalities from these overdoses are not uncommon.

As it is such a powerful pain killer, Tramadil is a common type of “downer.” It also reduces your ability to think, impairs your driving reactions, and impairs your judgment. Any physician will recommend that you do not take Tramadol if you are operating heavy machinery, driving a vehicle, or doing anything needing sharpness and requiring alertness.

Symptoms of Tramadol Withdrawal

There are many symptoms that you will suffer from if you take Tramadol too long and attempt to stop taking it. This includes all of the following:

  • Severe mood swings
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Aggressive behavior
  • Nervousness
  • Insomnia
  • Nightmares
  • Electric shocking sensations
  • Goosebumps
  • Muscle pain
  • Restlessness
  • Sneezing
  • Stomach cramping
  • Palpitations
  • Sweating
  • Headaches
  • Tremors
  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea
  • More

These withdrawal symptoms naturally will become more obvious to you and your friends and family if you abruptly quit abusing it.

Treating Tramadol Addiction

It is not a simple thing to treat your Tramadol addiction. It is difficult like other situations where your body is physically addicted to the opioid. Centers use one of a variety of ways to help you withdraw and detox from Tramadol.

The first is to gradually reduce the amount of the drug that you take. This reduces or avoids the withdrawal symptoms. A physician at a detox center will know how to appropriately lower the dosage of the drug until it is completely gone. This could require even two to three months to do properly if you have been taking high dosages. For most people though, they need ten days or more of time. The problem is that dysphoria and depression symptoms may be long-lasting.

Centers and hospitals also offer what is called ultra rapid opioid detoxification. This is ideal for you if you can not seem to deal with the symptoms of withdrawal or you are merely fearful of the consequences of going it alone. You may not have two to three months to devote to withdrawal either. In-hospital or in-center treatment to be free of Tramadol is quick, safe, comfortable, and highly effective. It only requires three to four days to have the Tramadol completely out of your system.

The way it works is that the Tramadol is stopped abruptly. You get medications to increase the speed of withdrawal. You would receive general anesthesia in the acute symptoms’ phase. This appeals to many recovering Tramadol abusers. This does not guarantee that you will not relapse though, so many centers will also pair the treatment with counseling and group therapy sessions to deal with the roots of the addiction and the ongoing feelings of general unease and depression, which are not so easily cured.

Real Client Testimonials

  • Before coming to coastal I was hopeless, helpless, and my family wanted nothing to do with me. It wasn’t the first detox I’d ever been to, but it was the only one who showed me so much love and compassion. They gave me hope. It’s hard to put into words the amount of gratitude I have for this facility. The employees were my family when I had none. The staff went out of their way to make sure not only were my physical needs taken care of, but my emotional needs as well. From the first phone call prior to admission, to helping me set up continuing care, they never missed a beat. Even going as far as to help me with my legal issues via Zoom court. This isn’t just a detox, they are the family I never had. All of the techs, especially Karen, are phenomenal. They will take the time to listen to you, laugh, and cry(if needed) with you. If you are reading this and you or your loved one is suffering like I was, go to Coastal Detox. The level of care is more than I could ever put into a review. It wasn’t the first detox I’d been to, but it has been my last; I owe them everything I have today, including my life.

  • Had a really good experience at Coastal. The staff really went above and beyond in helping me get in and gave me the respect l, space and care I needed after I first got there. As I started to fell better they encouraged me to take part in groups which helped get me out of my head and bring positivity and health to my thinking. They had a great massage therapist, who came daily and it was evident the nursing staff genuinely cared. Got to know some of the staff as well and I’m grateful for the cooks Joe and Chris. Those guys literally made us sirloins and pork chops for dinner. Also I gotta thank Chris and Chris for helping me get in and setting me up with a transition plan. Real grateful for that help, I’m not sure if it’s management intention to hire guys named Chris but they got a good thing going there. Overall, I’m clean and sober today and walking it out. Coastal gave me a base that set me up for the success that I’m walking in today

  • My family is very thankful for Coastal Detox. They have went above and beyond for my son a few times. Unfortunately he has needed their help more than once and they have ever turned their back on him, even when he was at his worst. Jeannie and Chris have been amazing and kept me informed through the entire process. They truly care about the addict and want to help them especially when it would be easy to give up on them. I had many detox facilities be rude and uncaring to me when I was searching for help for my son, but Coastal never did that to us. I don't know the names of all the team members that have helped my son but I know their are many and y'all are angels!! One day we will be able to pay it forward and help someone as you have helped us. Thank you for all you do!!

  • Can not say enough nice things about Coastal Detox & staff. Family member was there, told me five stars for the facility & all whom she interacted with. Said the facilities, ambience..., cleanliness, grounds, food, (think their chef is five stars), were all top shelf. All I interacted with personally & on the phone were patient, professional, responsive & caring. Kudos to so many: Jeannie Jones, Clinical Director whom I spent the most face to face time with: great oversight, patience & follow thru. Raquel Barker, Therapist was so understanding & on spot with her assessments/care. Kris Garrigus Admissions Director, another Coastal professional whom I cannot say enough nice things about, always so patient & responsive to my probably too frequent inquires. Not to be forgotten is Judy Tucker, Director of Operations she too so patiently "put up with me"
    I highly recommend Coastal Detox
