Understanding Addiction

Understanding Addiction & Substance Abuse Recovery

Overcoming an addiction to opioids can truly be the biggest hurdle that an individual can face in his or her lifetime. Once an addiction to opioids such as heroin or prescription painkillers develops, an individual can quickly feel as if every facet of his or her life is overtaken by his or her addictive behaviors. Relationships that were once important begin to fall apart, job loss becomes a reality due to poor performance at work, and financial issues become a daily struggle. In addition to the social disruptions that can take place, individuals who find themselves addicted to opioids also must face the physical challenges and dangers that are directly linked to opioid abuse. The longer that an individual abuses opioids, the greater risk that he or she will be faced with fatality due to overdose. There are, however, treatment options available that can help those caught in the grips of an opioid addiction.
