What Exactly is Opioid Dependence?
This is a chronic disease that can affect anyone. It has been defined as a long-term brain disease by both the World Health Organization and the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Opioid dependence is a complex health condition with many elements that are caused or made worse by continued opioid use. It includes social, psychological, and biological components. This disease can occur as the brain adapts to the regular use of opioids over time. Anyone can have it: your neighbor, your coworkers, your mailman, or even your best friend. You are not alone. Approximately over 2.1 million individuals suffer from opioid addictions. They have either abused or were dependent on opioids, like heroin or prescription painkillers. Some examples include oxycodone, hydrocodone, and fentanyl. For those who are dependent on opioids, the need constantly satisfy cravings and avoid withdrawal symptoms become intense and extremely difficult to manage on their own.
