What Are Opioids?

Opioids are powerful narcotic medications used to treat severe chronic and acute pain, such as cancer-related and post-surgical symptoms. In a clinical context, they are remarkably effective in helping patients through painful illness and injury; they are also, however, highly addictive and mirror the withdrawal effects of heroin if abused. Some of the more common opioid medications, include:

  • Codeine
  • Fentanyl
  • Hydrocodone
  • Methadone
  • Morphine
  • Oxycodone

Though they are facing increasing regulation, these drugs are commonly diverted for recreational use due to the euphoria they illicit in newer users. Very quickly, however, withdrawal begins to manifest and users find themselves in a cycle of abuse. Opioid addiction affects both recreational users and those who started taking them for a legitimate medical condition. It is tragically common for addicts who can no longer afford or access opioids to graduate to the cheaper and more accessible heroin alternative.
