Don’t Suffer with Opioid Withdrawal

When a person who is using opioids regularly stops abruptly or even drops their dosage rapidly, physical and mental withdrawal symptoms will occur. This is not a matter of discipline or fortitude. Suffering through opioid withdrawal should not be a point of pride or a rite of passage for anyone. It happens, but it doesn’t need to.

The medication-assisted opioid detox we provide at Desert Rose Detox makes the process of getting off of opioids far more comfortable than it would be otherwise. No one deserves to suffer through opiate withdrawal, least of all someone who is trying to do the right thing and get sober. We can help. Our compassionate detox nurses are on duty 24-hours a day, 7-days a week.

As soon as you arrive, we move through the admissions process quickly. You will be assessed by our clinical staff who will carefully note and attend to any symptoms you’re experiencing. We use a state-of-the-art opioid detox protocol here that not only mitigates the usual physical withdrawal symptoms but will help quell anxiety and sleeplessness.

Opioids vs Opiates – What’s the Difference?

When people seek an opioid detox one of the questions we are often asked is, what is the difference between opioids and opiates? Desert Rose Detox is happy to clear this up for you. If you’re seeking help for opioid addiction for yourself or someone else, arming yourself with the facts is and important part of making an informed decision about opioid detox and treatment.

In a nutshell:  All opiates are opioids, but not all opioids are opiates. Still confused? You won’t be after you read the rest of this section.


This category includes ALL drugs and compounds which attach to opioid receptors in the brain to create an analgesic (painkilling) effect along with other effects which may include acting as a depressant, generating euphoria and a sense of warmth and wellbeing. Oxycodone (Percocet, OxyContin), hydrocodone (Vicodin, Lortab), heroin and fentanyl are opioids. So are any other drug which produces similar effects by acting upon opioid receptors in the same way.


Opiates are opioid drugs or compounds which are extracted from natural plant material, the sap and fibers of the opium poppy (Papaver somniferum). Examples of opiates include: opium, heroin, morphine and codeine. Synthetic drugs like Oxycodone (Percocet, OxyContin), hydrocodone (Vicodin, Lortab) and fentanyl are NOT opiates because they aren’t derived from the opium poppy, but rather synthesized in the lab.

Opioid Detox or Opiate Detox?

Generally speaking, it’s more accurate to use the term “opioids” as it covers every drug in this category. The word opiate is really only needed if it is necessary to differentiate a naturally based drug derived from the opium poppy from a synthetic opioid. All opioids are addictive. An opioid detox covers all your bases.

Opiates made from the natural form are not any safer or less addictive. The main pharmaceutical difference is that some people who have allergic reactions to opiates, may have less of a reaction to a synthetic opioid. All opioids, including opiates, are dangerous and have potential for dependence.  

Desert Rose opioid detox is highly experienced in treating the discomfort and anxiety associated with withdrawal from opioids. Our evidence-based treatment model relies upon clinically proven medications and therapies to ensure your comfort and tranquility while you heal in the hands of our opioid detox specialists.
