Opioids are medications, such as hydrocodone, oxycodone (e.g., OxyContin, Percocet), dilaudid, and morphine are prescribed to relieve pain. These “painkillers” reduce the intensity of pain signals reaching the brain and affect those brain areas controlling emotion, which diminishes the effects of a painful stimulus.
Opioids have a great potential for misuse, even used over a short period of time can cause dependence, and repeated use of opioids greatly increases the risk for addiction.
These are currently among the most commonly abused drugs in the United States, and Oxycodone is responsible for more overdose deaths than any other prescription medication.
Heroin Addiction Treatment
Heroin is an extremely powerful opiate drug and can be injected, snorted, or smoked. All three routes deliver the drug to the brain quickly, which contributes to the immediate feeling of euphoria, but also the extremely high risk of addiction. Studies have shown some deterioration of the brain’s white matter due to heroin use, which may affect decision-making abilities, the ability to regulate behavior, and responses to stressful situations.
