Why are Opioids such a Problem in Utah?
Six Utahns die per week from opioid overdose and Utah has the 7th highest drug overdose rate in all of the United States. It is very hard to overcome an opioid overdose on your own because of the intense withdrawal symptoms ranging from shaking to vomiting and high levels of anxiety. Opioids are often prescribed for their pain-reducing abilities, but are often misused after the pain has dissipated due to addiction. The brain often builds up a tolerance to the opioid and will stop producing its own endorphins, so it will rely on the opioid at unnatural levels to dull pain and to feel good. Opioids are very similar to heroin at a molecular level, which is why it is so easy to become addicted.
Although Utah passed the Good Samaritan law, which allows bystanders to report an overdose without fear of criminal prosecution for illegal possession of a drug, and the Naloxone Law allows physicians to prescribe naloxone (a medication designed to reverse opioid overdose) in case of opioid overdose, you don’t want to wait to the point of overdose to reach out for help. Let the professionals at Casa Recovery take care of you and treat your addiction before getting to such a low point. We are here for you every step of the way and can figure out the best course of action to help you recover from opioid addiction.
