Opium


Opium Overview
Opium is a highly addictive non-synthetic narcotic that is extracted from the poppy plant, Papaver somniferum. The opium poppy is the key ingredient for many narcotics, including morphine, codeine, and heroin. Opium can be a liquid, solid, or powder, but most poppy straw concentrate is available commercially as a fine brownish powder.

Methods of Abuse
Opium can be smoked, intravenously injected, or taken in pill form. Opium is also abused in combination with other drugs. For example, "Black" is a combination of marijuana, opium, and methamphetamine, and "Buddha" is potent marijuana spiked with opium.

Effect on the Mind
The intensity of opium's euphoric effects on the brain depends on the dose and route of administration. It works quickly when smoked because the opiate chemicals pass into the lungs where they are quickly absorbed and sent to the brain. An opium “high” is very similar to the “high” one receives after taking heroin. Users experience a euphoric rush, followed by a period of relaxation and the relief of physical pain.

Effect on the Body
Opium inhibits muscle movement in the bowels leading to constipation. It also can dry out the mouth and mucous membranes in the nose. Opium use leads to physical and psychological dependence, and can lead to overdose. Effects of overdose include slow breathing, seizures, dizziness, weakness, loss of consciousness, coma, and possible death.

Teen Drug Rehab Centers can guide you in the right direction in choosing an adolescent rehabilitation center that will provide the treatment and therapies specifically related to your child’s needs. If your doctor has recommended that your teen stay in an inpatient/residential addiction treatment program, we can help you get admitted. Give us a call at 1-888-610-2046 and we will help identify the most suitable treatment program for your child.
Remember, as parents, the earlier you start talking to your child about drugs, including prescription drugs, the more influence you may have on their values and decisions. Several short conversations are better than one long lecture.
