Understanding Addiction

Understanding Addiction & Substance Abuse Recovery

Struggling with an addiction to opioids can be one of the greatest challenges of an individual’s entire life. When someone is addicted to opioids like prescription pain medications or heroin, he or she likely feels as though there is no way out. All parts of their lives have suffered tremendous damage from their opioid addictions, causing their occupational, home, and social lives to be left in shambles. In addition, those who abuse opioids place themselves at an increased risk for going through a number of dangerous physical health problems. The longer that an individual remains addicted to opioids, the more likely he or she becomes to overdosing, which is oftentimes deadly.
