Opiates/Heroin


Opiates are drugs derived from the poppy plant, but they can also be synthetically made. Opiates include some of the most harmful and addictive substances available and encompass narcotic pain medications like OxyContin, Vicodin and Percocet. Heavy or prolonged abuse of opiates can cause great physical dependence to the point where the user becomes reliant. Oftentimes, an addict will continue to use opiates and even increase their dosage to prevent symptoms of withdrawal.
