A Loving Hug

KNOW THE FACTS
Opioids can cause severe physical dependence. Once a person is dependent on a substance, he or she cannot function normally without the drug. They may experience uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms, some of which can be life-threatening. A medically assisted detox program may be necessary to help a person safely detox. 

Don’t Let Opiates Control Your Life

Opiates are among the most frequently abuse prescription pain meds prescribed by physicians in America. Taking any medication without a prescription, or taking more than prescribed, or using it for a different reason than prescribed are all forms of abuse. And prescription drug abuse doesn’t discriminate. It affects people of all ages and backgrounds. The good news is help is available.

What Is An Opioid Addiction?
An opioid addiction is also called substance abuse or a substance use disorder (SUD). The signs and symptoms of substance abuse can be physical, behavioral, and psychological. One clear sign of addiction is not being able to stop using opioids. Another sign is if a person is not able to stop using more than the amount prescribed by their doctor.
