Opiate withdrawal symptoms can start anywhere between 6 and 30 hours peak about 72 into withdrawal and last anywhere from a week to a month depending on the severity of your addiction and what exactly you are addicted to. Did you know that between 26.4 and 36 million people abuse opiate drugs. That is a lot of people. says that opioid drugs should not be stopped suddenly.

Opiate withdrawal sucks! The only good thing about it is after a week or so, your physical symptoms should subside. Its something you will always crave so you should prepare for that. But with time it really does get better. I wish you the best of luck.

Opiate withdrawal symptoms timeline really depends on what type of opiates you are takeing, how long you have been taking them, and how often you take them. You could be in withdrawal for a week, or you could be looking at a couple months of withdrawal.

When we found out our mom was addicted to opiates we held an intervention to help her get clean she had withdrawal symptoms for two months. I found this that helped my sisters and I stage the intervention ourselves to help save for the rehab center we picked out. It explains everything you need to know like examples of people you should or should not consider inviting to the intervention. It was a huge help and reassured me we were doing the right thing.
