Understanding Addiction

Understanding Addiction & Substance Abuse Recovery

Individuals who are faced with the difficult challenge of successfully defeating addictions to opioids must overcome a variety of obstacles. Once addicted to opioids such as prescription painkillers or heroin, individuals will feel as if every facet of their lives revolves around their addictive behaviors. Their social life quickly falls apart, relationships begin to deteriorate, quality of their work begins to suffer which can result in job loss, and financial responsibilities are no longer met. In addition, the health of an individual who abuses opioids quickly declines, which can result in fatality if left untreated. Thankfully, help is available.
