Opioids are synthetic and semi-synthetic drugs that produce morphine-like effects because they act on opioid receptors. These drugs are mainly used for pain relief in the form of prescriptions, however they are highly addictive even when prescribed carefully. America is currently in the midst of an opioid epidemic because overdose deaths are hitting a staggering rate.
Many drugs fall under the Opioid category- the main ones are Fentanyl, Heroin, Hydrocodone, Methadone, and Oxycodone. Some of these are considered legal, some considered illegal, but all have addictive properties that, if not closely monitored or completely avoided, can create addiction.
Withdrawal from Opioids can be difficult, and even deadly. Some of the symptoms include nausea, depression, agitation, cravings, anxiety, and more. These symptoms can turn into a serious medical issue, and without the proper care from a licensed facility, you could risk your life in the withdrawal.
