What is Opioid Addiction?
Addiction is a primary, chronic and relapsing brain disease characterized by an individual pursuing reward and/or relief by compulsive drug seeking and use, despite harmful consequences.
Opioids are a class of drugs that include the illicit drug heroin as well as legal prescription pain relievers oxycodone, hydrocodone, codeine, morphine, fentanyl and others.
These drugs interact with opioid receptors on nerve cells in the brain to produce pleasurable effects and relieve pain.
