Opiate Withdrawal

Opiate Withdrawal

Share This Post

Opiate withdrawal is characterized by the physical and mental symptoms that occur after stopping or reducing intake of opioids, a substance found in certain prescription pain medications and illegal drugs like heroin.

The use of prescription medication is used by nearly half of all Americans in the United States. The use of opioids increases the possibility for prolonged use, misuse and abuse. After the body becomes physically dependent on the prescribed medication and the patient wants to discontinue use of opioid, the body goes through a withdrawal stage.

The withdrawal process is not comfortable since opiates reduce the perception of pain, thus making it physically painful for the addict to discontinue the use of the drug. Opiate withdrawal can also be dangerous if the addict relapses after detoxing from drug abuse because the body’s tolerance decreases during treatment. The intolerance of the same amount of drug can lead to an overdose and death.

Recovering addicts can go through physical aches, pains and mood changes, which may take anywhere from a few days to a few months to feel normal, depending on what drug was taken, how long it was taken for and how it was consumed. It is strongly recommended that addicts seeking treatment see a medical professional for assistance in quitting to ensure the process of detoxing is done properly.

DrugTestKitUSA provides drug testing for opiates, opioids and other narcotics. A 12 Panel Drug Test will usually include screening for general opiates, morphine, oxycodone, and other substances within the opiate family.

DrugTestKitUSA Payments built in partnership with Stripe

Security at Stripe: Learn how Stripe handles security.

A PCI-certified auditor has audited Stripe. We’re a certified PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry. To accomplish this, we use the best-in-class security tools and practices to maintain a high level of security at Stripe.

HTTPS and HSTS for secure connections

Stripe forces HTTPS for all services using TLS (SSL), including our public website and the Dashboard to ensure secure connections:

  • Stripe.js is served only over TLS.
  • Stripe’s official libraries connect to Stripe’s servers over TLS and verify TLS certificates on each connection.

We regularly audit the details of our implementation, including the certificates we serve, the certificate authorities we use, and the ciphers we support. We use HSTS to ensure that browsers interact with Stripe only over HTTPS. Stripe is also on the HSTS preloaded lists for both Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

Sensitive data and communication encryption

All card numbers are encrypted at rest with AES-256. Decryption keys are stored on separate machines. None of Stripe’s internal servers and daemons can obtain plain text card numbers but can request that cards are sent to a service provider on a static allowlist. Stripe’s infrastructure for storing, decrypting, and transmitting card numbers runs in a separate hosting environment, and doesn’t share any credentials with Stripe’s primary services including our API and website.
