Prescription Opiate Addiction
YOUR INPATIENT OPIATE TREATMENT CENTER
ARE YOU ABUSING OPIATES?
Prescription Opiates Are Habit-Forming
An opiate is a pharmacological substance derived from opium. In addition to illicit opiates such as heroin, doctors often prescribe opiate medications to treat patients with chronic pain and other health issues. Examples of prescription opiates include morphine, percocet, and fentanyl. Because they are so easily accessible, many Americans struggle with a prescription opiate addiction. When ingested, opiates increase the brain’s dopamine levels, resulting in an immediate sensation of euphoria, lowered heart rate, relaxed state, and drowsiness. Over time, the brain stops producing the same amount of natural dopamine, prompting the individual to ingest increasing amounts of the drug to achieve the same effect.
