10 Supplements For Faster All Natural At-Home Opiate Detox

These 10 supplements can help you feel better, faster after opiate abuse, and here’s why. When you become dependent and abuse opioids you become emotional, mental and physically unbalanced. Drugs and opiates do damage to a lot of different chemical systems and areas in your body need corrected. Because these chemicals systems control natural rewards, which are chemicals released hat keep you feeling confident, happy and healthy. Opiate abuse wrecks these natural rewards.

And that’s why I’ve listed below the 10 best all-natural opiate detox vitamins, herbs and supplements for mental, emotional and physical health.

Opioid Detox Withdrawal Supplement #1: REST

REST - ease painful opiate withdrawal symptoms and shorten withdrawal duration

REST is a strong muscle relaxant and natural sleeping formula. By actively calming the muscles of the body with powerful muscle relaxants, and by flooding the brain with mood enhancers, serotonin-producers & calming agents, “Rest” helps you slow down, relieve stress, & soothe the body allowing you to deal with life’s anxieties better. As well as promoting a deeper healthy night’s sleep.

GABA, L-Theanine & 5-HTP, influence the levels of GABA and the neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin, which makes REST remarkably effective at relieving tension and stress.

Opioid Detox Withdrawal Supplement #2: ATTITUDE

ATTITUDE - for improved mood and motivation

After opiate addiction your body needs to rebuild its natural neurotransmitter systems and reset natural opiate production in the body. ATTITUDE provides basically “amino acid therapy” or “detox therapy.” Which helps relieve some symptoms but should also REDUCE the amount of days you go through this hell. ATTITUDE’s combination of specific ingredients is intended to help enhance mood, reduce stress and improve sleep naturally.

Opioid Detox Withdrawal Supplement #3: ACTIVITY

ACTIVITY - repair damage done to the brain’s neurotransmitters after opiate abuse and enhance mental performance

ACTIVITY provides a proprietary blend of ingredients designed to enhance mental performance, improve concentration. Originally developed by an anti-aging doctor. It’s now used to treat for depression, anxiety and stress. Replace worn out neurons and repair damaged synapses in the brain. Also to boost natural serotonin and dopamine levels. And supports greater memory and thought processes.

Opioid Detox-Recovery Supplement #4: 5-HTP

5-htp raises your natural serotonin levels which can have a very positive impact on sleep, mood and motivation.

When you quit opiates you feel like shi* because opioids suppress critical brain chemicals that make you feel good are – serotonin, endorphins, dopamine. When these chemicals are low, you feel lifeless, sad, depressed, anxious and down.

Thankfully 5-HTP improves serotonin synthesis, and its also the precursor for melatonin, the hormone involved in sleep patterns of the human body. Those who supplement with 5-htp for painkiller withdrawal report feelings of relaxation, calm and deeper, sounder sleep.

Take 5-Htp for:

  • longer deeper sleep
  • Improves mood and outlook promotes
  • Increases dopamine levels which improves sense of well being and happiness
  •  Boosts serotonin levels

Opioid Repair Supplement #5: Mucuna Pruriens  

Boost natural dopamine production.

A great over the counter supplement for withdrawal Pruriens, which is an important amino acid. The body uses tyrosine to make chemical messengers involved in the brain such as mental alertness, focus and energy. L-Tyrosine improves your bodies natural production of dopamine which also improves your mood, attitude, outlook and energy.

Opiates work by pumping your system full of artificial or synthetic dopamine, releasing between 2-10x the dopamine as natural rewards allow. Your body adjusts to these overwhelming surges by lowering it’s natural dopamine levels. Over a period of time your body begins to produce less and less natural dopamine. When your dopamine is low you feel anxious, depressed, un-motivated and down.

Key Benefits of Mucuna Pruriens:

  • Supports a healthy mood and outlook
  • Improves energy
  • Increases mental alertness, focus and concentration
  • Maintains a healthy appetite.
  • Rebuilds production of key neurotransmitter dopamine

Opioid Repair Supplement #6: Alpha Lipoic Acid

An outstanding antioxidant for improved cellular energy

Alpha Lipoic Acid was first discovered in the 1950s. It is an enzyme found in mitochondria, which are the energy powerhouses of human cells. We make some lipoic acid in our bodies but it is usually not enough, so we rely on food – potatoes, red meat, etc. to supply what we need for optimal health.

Why it Works

Alpha Lipoic Acid is sometimes referred to as a “universal antioxidant” and is more effective in neutralizing free radicals than almost all other antioxidants. Why?

Because it actually recycles other antioxidants, specifically Vitamin E and Vitamin C, enhancing their potency. Unlike most antioxidants, it has the unique ability to be active in both the water and fat compartments in the body. It also plays an important role in the process that recycles glutathione, which is another major antioxidant in the body. And it assists B vitamins in converting carbohydrates, proteins, and fats into energy.

Withdrawal Symptoms Alpha Lipoic Acid Eases

    • Body Detoxification from dangerous substances built up over time slow our recovery and can make us sick
    • Stimulates cellular activity and energy
    • A potent antioxidant that heals and repairs liver

Herbal Withdrawal Remedy #7: Milk Thistle

Naturally detoxify your liver and improve it’s function

Milk thistle is a thistle of the genus Silybum, a flowering plant of the daisy family. The plant is native to the Mediterranean regions of Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. The seeds of the milk thistle have been used for 2,000 years to treat chronic liver disease and protect the liver against toxins. Milk Thistle has long been valued for its role in ensuring healthy liver function and it is also a powerful antioxidant.

Why it Works:

If you’ve used opiates or abused other drugs, your liver is probably overloaded with toxins and not functioning properly. When your liver gets like this, other parts of your body will also begin to suffer.

Withdrawal Symptoms Milk Thistle Relieves 

    • Repairs and Restores the Liver
    • Improves Liver Function
    • Detoxifies and Protects Liver

A very good liver repair supplement that I recommend can be found here: Liver Detox60 + 60 VCaps by Renew Life at eVitamins

Opioid Withdrawal Supplement #8: Probiotics

Improve digestion, increase immunity, and relieve nausea.

Did you know the stomach is often referred to as the second brain? Which makes taking care of your stomach all the more important. Probiotcs are the perfect supplement to help with just that.

Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that occur naturally in the human intestinal tract. Foods “cultured” with beneficial strains of probiotics such as yogurt and kefir have been used throughout history to improve health and vitality.

Today, there are many studies reinforcing their ability to balance and promote digestive health. Probiotics also play an important role in modulating the immune system, 70% of which is located in the gut.

Why probiotics help withdrawal symptoms

Years of poor nutrition and drug use has wrecked many people’s digestive system. Often leaving users with many types of indigestion, stomach pain, diarrhea, etc. and other symptoms. A cycle of probiotics can do wonders for the right person.

Pain Killer Recovery Supplement #9: L-Glutamine

  • Thank you for all your info! This was exactly what I was looking for. Keep it up!

  • I wanted to thank you for all you have done with your website.HELPING OTHERS HELP THEMSELVES is so important and for many is not a priority until they find themselves in a “need help” situation.All the judgement and bashing that goes on towards those with addictions is a waste of time and energy that could be channeled into something positive,something helpful; like what you are doing.So i send you my gratitude for your time and effort and encourage you to continue, and others to support you in your efforts.If i may be of assistance in any way please do not hesitate to contact me via email.Thanks again and god bless you.

  • My body seems to reject everything that could possibly help me, especially any medication and high amounts of protein. Im 5 months into this opiate free and am still feeling terrible. What do i do??? Im terrified of the supplements because of how my body reacts to everything now. It makes me feel much worse. Just need help.

    • Reilly Johnson

      Hi Rebecca, have you ever visited a naturopathic doctor or tried an alternative therapy like acupuncture?

    • Have you looked into low dose naltrexone? It’s a great medicine and when given at low doses, around 1.5-4.5 mg it increases your endorphins and also can help with autoimmune disorders. Lots of benefits and a really safe med at the low dose!! Worth checking into!!

  • Stumbled on this site looking to ease the burden of stopping the opiate express. I applaud your insight and personally found a lot of this information helpful. I have seen other sites with similar information but the way your site is layed out and the way the information is presented is cut and dry and makes it all that much easier to absorb. Its a damn shame the grip opiates can get on a person. What started out as a leisure activity quickly turned into a nightmare the likes of which I have never endured. The chase, the anxiety, the wasted money. I don’t care who you are if you play with fire you are going to get burned. Heed the warnings because opiate addiction doesn’t pick and choose. Once you pop you’ll find it harder and harder to stop. I went from an “A” player in both my career and personal life to a lazy, broke, hopeless soul searcher. I knew it was a problem but had limited control on tackling it. That’s how aggressive opiates are. They literally take over and reprogram your brain so that getting your next pill, shot, w/e becomes inherent and necessary to get through the day. Often I would look down at the tiny 30mg oxy in my hand and say to myself “Does this little tiny pill really have that strong of a grip on me? Does this little tiny pill bring me to my knees?” The answer is yes I don’t care how much of a bad ass you think you are. I was a solid 225 shredded right before I started with as positive an outlook as you can have. I would open my eyes in the morning and love the life I was creating. Now Im 185 and dread waking up and worrying about how I’m gonna hustle my way to normalcy. HOWEVER, I have created enough momentum and the inner voice of the old me is loud enough to where I can hear it now and with sites like this Im confident I am finally burying this demon under a pile of cement and never looking back. To all who still struggle….keep fighting one day you will crack and find the strength just don’t give up. Its a long windy road but eventually your WHY’s will become louder and you will give up. Till then stay strong. And lastly to Reilly, your doing great things for people you don’t even know. Sharing insight and knowledge to individuals who are fighting wars within themselves is an attribute second to none. Your care and commitment will be rewarded in so many ways. That surge of energy you just felt after reading that last line is what a true high is. That emotional rush is what we all long for and no pill, powder, liquid etc can compare to that. You’ve tapped into it. Enjoy it for the rest of your life. I know I will…….Till next time…..

    • Reilly Johnson

      Tony, thank you for the outstanding insight. As anyone who’s struggled with opiates knows, your comments are right on. I appreciate the kind words and I hope you continue to post your wisdom and knowledge here. If there’s anything I can do for you, or anything you want to do for others, please let me know if I can help. Thank you,

      Reilly

    • Hi, I realize you posted a few months ago but after reading what you said I could t help but wonder if you were able to get off the pills or not?? I’ve been on and off pills since I was 14 (I’m 31 now) but daily and totally addicted for the past 5 years.. I am so sick of this and have a picture of myself in my head of who I want to be and I want to be there so bad.. The past few weeks I’ve been trying to take less here and there and it’s hard already.. I want to try to tapper off slowly but seriously it is soo hard.. Hope your doing well.. Any advice for me.. Anything would help..

  • you forgot one of the best natural supplements. It is called Sam E.I’ve been on suboxin for 7 years and heroin for two years before that so its been almost 10 years straight that I’ve been on some type of opiate so obviously my brain is so out of whack. But I take Sammy vitamin B supplements multi vitamins and once in awhile I will also take 5htp for at night time only because I have a CP makes me extremely tired but Sam is taking in the morning gives energy even if you can’t sleep the night before. However one has to be careful because it will build up in the system and they can potentially be too much for the brain so I would advise to take sam-e only every other day and don’t take vitamin B complex everyday but take that every other day as well because the stuff is powerful and overload will cause serotonin syndrome. Trust me when I say this stuff works. I’m also going to start a holistic website I’m already finished with most of it and once I get better I’m going to finish it completelyits going to be a lot more than just a diction but maybewe can use each others sites and as long as you include Sam he has one of the addiction cure I won’t write anything about addiction I’ll just link that section on my website right to yours. Obviously that’s up to you but I do like the information you have except for I bought game because its not available in the United States and it can cause someone to go in such a deep trance so they can be demon possessed which is not good. I also don’t really like the marijuana thing because even though I know what helps personally if it’s not legal then you really need to be careful with promoting that to people who don’t live in states where marijuana is not legal because I can cause in the end up in jail and start your diction process all over again and so you’re not really helping people in that way

    • Reilly Johnson

      Thank you for your comment. Good insight. I agree with you, SAME is another effective supplement for withdrawal symptoms. It’s also known to help alleviate depression. I agree with you on not promoting marijuana but the fact remains the same, if you’re hurting like hell and nothing else is working -it’s an option to consider depending on your own personal beliefs. If comes to relapsing on opiates because your withdrawal pain is so bad and staying trapped in the same vicious cycle vs. using marijuana medicinally for a week until your body can begin to rebalance itself, it can help the right people. When it comes to beating opiate addiction, it’s important to remember nothing is one size fits all, different strokes for different folks.

  • I’m only on day 2 and feel like I wanna blow my brains out ..I started crying when I read the email from Tony he really gave ppl the ugly truth an my fily don’t understand they look at me as some sort of drug addict because they have no idea. (edit) I been on hydros 7.5 ml for 6 years I get 90 every 10 days an still find myself spending hundreds of dollars on more when that money can go on my son. I’m in hell with gasoline panties on with jack frost kissin my ass right now the sweats an cold chills make my blood run cold an my bones feel like they are gonna break. I’m afraid but have my family behind me I long for a normal life tired of sittin in the same spot everyday poppin pills to move I will try to fight this don wiyh all I got thanks guys for all the hope u have givin me..

    • Reilly Johnson

      Selena, remember, your family & friends are behind you. Think about your blessings. Try to focus on the good in your life. Create a great big reason WHY you’re quitting. Know that people in every walk of life in every negative circumstance have prevailed and succeeded. 6 years of hydro withdrawal will keep you hurting for awhile, but the worst will not last too much longer. Stay strong, eliminate your source, try to rest and recoup. And please remember, when the pain from withdrawal subsides, REPLACE the habit with positive habits. Learn, cook, do yoga, work out, draw, swim etc., but at all costs find fulfillment in something else. If you don’t replace the habit, there’s a good chance the cycle will continue. Good luck Selena, stay strong, many others have done it, you can too!

  • Exactly the information I was looking for. I’m an advitte vitamin guy who is looking/trying to detox off opiates. Now its up to me and my will power. Thank you

  • In 2007 I entered a rehab and attended and graduated in 2 months and about 3 weeks. I was there for anything from meth marijuana ecstasy seroquels cocaine crack a few prescriptions every now and then but nothing too serious needless to say was clean for about 4 years.. It is now 2014 and I have been fighting a bad opiate addiction on and off for 3 years. I was taking anything from Hydros..and OCs well now I think called OPs lol Oxycodones the instant release snorting these and finally decided enough was enough. I am currently on Day 6 of at home withdrawling and reading some of these posts I feel everyone’s pain! I never thought there would be any light at the end of the tunnel but yesterday after 5 days of pure hell such as vomiting diarrhea chills fever sweats restless legs couldn’t even barely make it up out of bed but last night I finally went back to work for my overnight 12 hour shift! I’ve been taking vitamin C B12 and a few other Multi vitamins with the B vitamins in it and it seems to help quite a bit!! Everyone’s withdrawl is different just because someone says they were sick for 1 week 2 weeks or whatever doesn’t mean that is what is going to happen to you! Don’t read all these blogs like I did and scare your self. Just take one day at a time and don’t watch the clock find things to occupy your withdrawl time! On day 5 is when I finally woke up without that panic attack of where’s my next fix coming from and let me tell you it feels great! Yes the cravings come and go and I still have a long road ahead but with a support system on my side some vitamins meant for withdrawl symptoms can really ease the pain! I never thought I would make it this far and everyday that passes I know I will never have to feel that way again! Also when you can muster up the energy a liittle walk everyday really helps too even if it’s just around the house a few times and do a little more each and every day it really does help as well! I hope this helps someone because all these blogs I have read over these last 6 days were intimidating but don’t let it scare you everyone’s body is different just STAY POSITIVE!!!!! It really does make a difference!!!!

    • Hi I am a female and just turned 22 in January. I started popping pills around age 14 and started using vics, percs, whatever regularly around age 17. I checked myself into a methadone clinic November 2013. The highest mg I ever reached was 70, then started to go down 2 a week which is the fastest they allowed. After getting below 30 they only allowed 2 mgs ever 3 weeks. They began changing alot of rules and making it difficult for me to get off of it, so 3 weeks ago at 27 mgs I started to measure it myself at home. I get weekly take homes so I had to eyeball my dose every Tuesday to try not to take the whole 27 mgs. But I went down 2 mgs a day for the first 2 weeks and then 1 a day give or take. I am now at 8 mgs today and am still working my 3 jobs. I feel pretty Shitty but have been going on walks and doing yoga, eating healthy, and taking vitamins. I am going to go down 2 mgs a week for the next 4 weeks until 1 and then stop. The methadone clinic tried telling me that going any faster than 1 mg a week would be undoable, and here I am. I’m a little nervous about dropping to 0 but I think I’ll be okay. Thank you for all of your posts they helped motivate me. Good luck to you all, and just remember that this is your life and no one else can fix it but you. Peace and love.

  • I am wanting to get off oxycontin because I don’t have the same pain it was prescribed for over 5 years ago. I have had no problems with abuse, just don’t need to keep taking an oxy vitamin everyday for no reason. Can someone email me or recommend here a good vitamin regimen I could use to taper off and deal with the withdrawals. Or, do you recommend just going to a doctor and dealing with it that way. Thanks.

    • Reilly Johnson

      Hi George, you should always consult medical practitioner you trust. Someone who knows your specific health history. But as far as quitting OC I think you should certainly consider a vitamin regimen. We’re currently in the process of putting together a Vitamin stack specifically for withdrawal and addiction recovery. Come back and visit in about 2 weeks and we’ll have it for you here at The OFC.
