Opioid Addiction

Opioids refer to drugs that are naturally found in the opium poppy plant. They may be prescription medications known as painkillers or street drugs, like heroin. The most commonly used opioids are OxyContin and Vicodin, fentanyl, and heroin.

When used correctly and as prescribed, opioids are safe. But when people misuse them or use them illegally to get a high or temporary yet powerful sense of well-being, they can become addicted. 

Opioid addiction often leads to serious health consequences such as fewer endorphins in the brain, damage to the brain, heart, and other vital organs, muscle cramping or weakness, and an increased risk of overdose. 

At Compassion Behavioral Health, we offer a number of effective treatments for those who are addicted to opioids. Our goal is to help you transition into recovery, or a healthy lifestyle, free of addiction.
