Opioids are a class of drugs that include prescription painkillers like oxycodone, hydrocodone, and fentanyl, as well as illicit drugs like heroin. Opioid addiction occurs when these substances become compulsive, leading to physical dependence, cravings, and a range of detrimental consequences. Opioid addiction is characterized by an inability to control or stop opioid use, persistent cravings, and prioritizing opioids over personal, professional, and social responsibilities.
Drowsiness, constipation, pinpoint pupils, respiratory depression, nodding off, and increased tolerance require higher doses to achieve the desired effects.
Doctor shopping, engaging in deceptive behavior to obtain opioids, social withdrawal, neglecting personal and professional obligations, and preoccupation with obtaining and using opioids.
Mood swings, irritability, anxiety, depression, and overall demeanor and motivation changes.
Opioid addiction can lead to financial strain due to the cost of acquiring drugs and potential legal issues resulting from illicit drug use or engaging in illegal activities to sustain the addiction.
Recognizing the signs of opioid addiction and seeking professional help is crucial to recovery and reclaiming control over your life.
