What Are Considered Opioids?
Opioids are a class of drugs that include prescription painkillers like oxycodone, hydrocodone, and codeine, as well as illegal drugs like heroin. These substances interact with opioid receptors in the brain, blocking pain signals and producing feelings of euphoria. Opioids are highly addictive and can have serious health consequences when misused or taken in excessive amounts.
Signs of Opioid Addiction
A team of compassionate professionals provides support, structure, and hope for recovery from co-occurring addiction and mental health disorders. Every person receives an individually tailored program to meet their unique needs through group and individual therapy, life skills classes, and integration of 12-Step principles. Recognizing the signs of opioid addiction is crucial in seeking timely help. Some common signs include:
Opioid addiction may manifest through physical symptoms such as drowsiness, constricted pupils, slurred speech, and changes in appetite or weight.
Individuals struggling with opioid addiction may exhibit changes in behavior, including:
- Increased secrecy
- Decreased motivation
- Preoccupation with obtaining and using opioids
Opioid addiction can also present with psychological symptoms such as depression, anxiety, irritability, and feelings of guilt or shame.
Opioid addiction often leads to mood swings, irritability, anxiety, and depression. These emotional changes can significantly impact an individual’s overall well-being and relationships.
Tolerance and Withdrawal
Developing a tolerance to opioids and experiencing withdrawal symptoms when attempting to stop or reduce use are strong indications of addiction. Withdrawal symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, sweating, muscle aches, and insomnia.
If you or a loved one are experiencing these signs, seeking professional help is essential.
