Addiction is Anguish
Opiates, including heroin, morphine, oxycodone (Oxycontin and Percocet), hydrocodone (Vicodin and Lortab), codeine, and fentanyl, are often used to treat chronic pain. However, extended use decreases its effect, leaving the patient in need of more medication. Patients rapidly become dependent and suffer withdrawal symptoms when trying to stop opiate pain medication. In addition to biological symptoms, such as headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, sweating, cramping, cravings, and fatigue, there are co-occurring mental health conditions including anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Most people are also unaware that opiates are nervous system depressants and can slow down many of the body’s normal functions including breathing. This can be dangerous when people have a decreased respiratory function, are on other medications, or consume alcohol.
Deepening addiction affects all areas of life. It strains relationships, cripples performance at work, home or school, and drives addicts into despair and isolation.
