Narcotic addiction can be treated at Hope by the Sea's California Drug Rehab. Narcotics are drugs that alleviate physical pain, suppress coughing, alleviate diarrhea, and induce anesthesia. Natural narcotics are derived from the Opium poppy and synthetic narcotics are made to act like the major constituents of Opium (thebaine, morphine, codeine).
Legal, synthetic narcotics such as OxyContin (oxycodone) and Vicodin (hydrocodone) are prescribed as pain-relievers but are often diverted for illegitimate uses. Heroin is an illegal narcotic, derived from morphine.
Hope by the Sea is an affordable drug rehab center in California in the coastal Orange County area for narcotics abusers and addicts to help them begin the recovery process.
