Opiate Treatment in Newport Beach, California
The turmoil and destruction of opiate addiction doesn’t have to be a life sentence. Relief from the daily struggle of an opiate addiction is discovered every day here at Morningside Recovery. Treatment for opiate addiction involves changing deeply imbedded behaviors, which empowers one to break free from the deadly grip of opiates. Addicts themselves are often dumbfounded by their own continued use despite severe losses (financial, spouses, jobs, self-esteem), severe physically adverse consequences, and the threat of other damage. The despair and distress, the need to understand addiction as broken or impaired self and healing begins as soon as you or your loved one arrives at Morningside.

In the words of a former client, “I got to the point where I knew I was lying to myself every day, but I couldn’t stop. I never thought I could get like that, totally controlled by a drug. I would wake and tell myself that I wouldn’t get loaded. But an hour later I always found an excuse to pop some pills.”
