You can get off of Tramadol by entering our 30, 60, or 90-day treatment program. We also offer a broad spectrum of extended care treatment to prevent you from relapsing.

What is Tramadol?
Tramadol is an opioid painkiller that your doctor will prescribe for both severe short-term pain and chronic pain. Tramadol is effective at both reducing pain and blocking neurotransmitters from getting back into your system. For this reason, you may develop both a chemical and psychological dependence on Tramadol.
Once your brain gets hooked on Tramadol, you may experience withdrawal symptoms if you try to stop taking the drug. We recommend that you enter a detox center in Northern IL if you discontinue using Tramadol. A treatment specialist can monitor your symptoms and offer medication or holistic treatment to provide comfort. A detox center also ensures that you can receive immediate medical attention if you have severe or life-threatening symptoms.
Symptoms of Tramadol Addiction or Abuse
Because Tramadol is so potent, it can present some health or medical risks. Long-term use can lead to mental disorders. Likewise, an overdose can lead to emergency medical conditions that require a visit to the ER.
Some of the most common symptoms of Tramadol addiction include:
- Long-term use past the recommended prescription
- Ongoing increase in the dosage (because the effects wear off)
- Using Tramadol to feel the euphoria it produces (for recreational use)
- Repeated failed attempts to quit using the drug
- Acquiring the drug through illegal means
- Ignoring physical or psychological side effects to continue using the drug
If you overdose on Tramadol, you may experience respiratory problems, weakness, lethargy, dizziness, unconsciousness, coma, irregular heartbeat, nausea, vomiting, or tense muscles. If any of these symptoms occur, then do not delay seeking medical attention. Doing so can prevent long-term illness or fatality.
