Opioid addiction is often the result of an untreated Opioid Use Disorder. Even short term use of opioid drugs can lead to dependence and addiction.
How Opioid Addiction Occurs?
It is impossible to predict the vulnerability of an individual to the possibility of developing an addiction to opioid drugs. Addiction often starts with repetitive use of the substance to relieve emotional or physical pain. In a short amount of time, something that gave you relief and pleasure now feels like something that controls every part of your being. A constant and irresistible craving for a drug, despite the harm and negative consequences it may cause. Opioids are particularly a highly addictive substance, in large part because it activates the reward centers in the brain.
What Is Opioid Dependence?
Opioid dependence is a complex and multifaceted matter. It significantly affects your brain pathways and alters your reward center. Opioid dependence also affects the emotional and social aspects of a person’s life and often their family members and friends, too. Thankfully, there are several ways to combat this issue.
