Opioids/opiates are among the most addictive substances worldwide. Prescribed for various medical needs, opioids encompass a large class of prescription drugs such as morphine, oxycodone, and hydrocodone, and illegal substances such as heroin and opium. People who misuse opioids can develop an opioid addiction very quickly. Opioid addiction, also known as an opioid use disorder, is a condition in which someone compulsively seeks the drug.
