Opiate addiction is one of the biggest problems facing our country today. Since opiates are prescribed by doctors, many people do not realize how dangerous and addictive they really are. Addiction to pain medication effects people from every background and every part of our social strata. While the pain is very real, the body adjusts to the opiate medication and builds a tolerance and needs more of the medication for the same level of relief. Unfortunately, once a tolerance is built, you body becomes dependent on the opiate medication in order to function and soon it controls you life.
Just like other forms of addiction, opiate dependence and addiction is not a quick process. It occurs slowly over time and can potentially destroy your life. And, adding to the problem is that opiates are legal drugs and are usually prescribed by your doctor for legitimate pain.
