Opioid Addictions Have Been Sweeping the Nation
Serious opioid addictions have been sweeping the nation over the past decade. Opiates are a type of medication designed to target your opiate receptors and cause significant pain relief. It has been cited as comparable to morphine and has been used in anesthetics.
Although the definitions have been used interchangeably, opiates are naturally produced, and opioids are made artificially. Oxycodone is a form of an opioid pill. Demerol, Fentanyl, OxyContin, and Codeine are also examples of opiate pills. For many years they have been prescribed to help with pain relief, but often lead to a more dangerous end.

Why Did Oxycodone and Opioids Become Problem
Through decades of misleading advertising for Oxycodone pills, opioids have developed a reputation as highly addictive gateway drugs to heroin.

The 2010s saw the start of a developing understanding of how this crisis started and how it affects people. These shifts in perception have led to changes in media coverage and the establishment of centers focusing on outreach efforts and medical research.
Opioids Prescribed by Medical Doctors

Oxycodone Pills are Highly Addictive
Oxycodone pills are highly addictive. We have seen that these addictions can impair a person’s ability to co-exist with others and the world around them. An opiate abuser’s addiction can be a struggle for the family, friends, and, most of all – themselves.
What Does Abuse Look Like?
One scary part of Oxycodone abuse is the high potential to become addicted even when you follow your doctor’s prescription. When using an opiate, you can quickly build a tolerance. In the end, it can cause you to stop breathing or severely impair your ability to breathe.
During addiction, many people experience newfound trouble handling money, distance from family and friends, and even an inclination to steal. Flu-like symptoms, severe weight loss, and a general lack of good habits and hygiene can occur. If you feel yourself losing control of the opiate medication you are taking, we are here to help.
