Kissimmee Top Opioid Detox
Opioids are a highly addictive class of drugs, including prescription pain medication, heroin, and other drugs derived from an opium plant or synthetic equivalent. They stimulate dopamine production in the brain while relieving pain, causing a euphoric effect. Over time, your body’s tolerance for the drug increases, eventually becoming dependent on the drug to function, creating an addiction. WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab has the top and opioid rehab programs and opioid detox for Kissimmee residents. We integrate your physical and mental health care in an individualized treatment plan, with medical and psychological support from board-certified addictionologists, psychiatrists, doctors, and nurses. You will be monitored 24 hours a day to assure your health and safety during this potentially difficult time.
Opioid Withdrawal Symptoms

- Nausea and vomiting

Timeline of Opioid Withdrawal
The timeline of opioid withdrawal at our opioid detox in Kissimmee depends on which drug you are using, the duration, frequency, and dose you were using, as well as your physical and mental health during detox.
For short-acting opioid drugs like fentanyl, hydrocodone, oxycodone, and heroin, you will begin to feel withdrawal symptoms within eight to 24 hours, with symptoms peaking between one to three days, and then a tapering-off of symptoms for about a week to 10 days. With long-acting opioids like extended-release medication formulations and methadone, withdrawal symptoms will begin to show up within 36 hours of your last use. They can continue for 14 days or longer.
Detox Programs for Opioid Addiction
For opioid detox in Kissimmee, it is recommended to use a Medically Assisted Treatment (MAT) program. Even if unassisted drug detox does not become life-threatening, it is incredibly uncomfortable and likely leads to immediate relapse when you feel you cannot handle it anymore.
In a MAT program at WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab, you will receive treatment for your physical withdrawal symptoms, but we will also introduce therapy and counseling immediately to help you deal with unwanted or self-destructive emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. We will monitor you 24 hours a day, slowly tapering off your drug use with the assistance of prescribed medications to ensure you remain safe, relaxed, and comfortable. Our detox program will help you with drug cravings as your body removes the drugs from your system and your brain chemistry readjusts. This process enables you to begin to heal and find the root of your addiction.
Our MAT program also offers dual diagnosis treatments for those who need to deal with co-occurring mental health issues and trauma. These conditions are usually intertwined with addiction and may even have the same root cause, so treating them together in one integrated program makes sense.
