Such is the epidemic of opioid abuse, be it prescribed painkillers, street heroin or methamphetamine that many more people are likely to become hooked or to know someone who is.

It may seem that an increase in a problem is a bad thing but with it comes increased awareness and a realization of the need for change.

People can slip into a destructive cycle of addiction and abuse very easily. It can start quite innocently; for instance, someone will take medication for a painful injury and find that the sensation they get from the pills is pleasant enough that they continue to take it after the real need has gone. If they miss a dose or run out of pills they may feel unwell or have cravings and are therefore become compelled to find more or an alternative. It’s that easy. Want turns to need, pills turn to heroin, as it can be cheaper and easier to get hold of than prescribed drugs and before you know it you have an opiate use disorder.
