Data from the National Institute on Drug Abuse shows that in the United States, 128 people die every day from overdosing on opioids. While opioids can be safe when prescribed by a doctor and taken correctly, they can also be highly addictive. Right now, opioid addiction is a national crisis. When opioids are misused, they can easily disrupt your life, ruin your finances and destroy your relationships. Here are some common signs of an opioid addiction:

  • Inability to control opioid use even though it's having negative effects on personal relationships, finances, and/or your health
  • Uncontrollable cravings to use
  • Stealing money from friends, family and businesses to buy more
  • If prescribed, doctor shopping to obtain more pills
  • If prescribed, taking more dosage than recommended daily
  • Feeling anxious, angry, or irritated when unable to obtain more
  • Experiencing symptoms of withdrawal when you rapidly stop or decrease use

Using opioids can put you at a higher risk of overdosing and dying, it also increases your chance of heart attack, contracting an STD and developing long-term mental health issues.

Opioids come in several forms, including heroine, fentanyl and pain relievers like oxycodone, hydrocodone, codeine, morphine and many others.
