Substance Abuse Treatment

Are you or someone you know dependent on Opioids such as Pain Killers or Heroin?

Certain drugs, commonly prescribed for pain, may lead to dependence in some people – even when they are taken properly. These drugs, along with heroin, are known as opioids. Opioids are powerful narcotic drugs that are highly effective at treating pain – unfortunately, they are also highly addictive.

Identifying opioid dependence is the first step towards getting better…Ask the following questions:

  • Have they ever felt the need to cut down on their use of prescription opioid pain medication or heroin?
  • Have they ever given up activities to use?
  • Are they spending more time on activities to get prescription opioid pain medication or heroin?
  • Have they ever used prescription opioid pain medication or heroin despite negative consequences?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, the person you care about may have become unintentionally drug dependent.
