Addiction of any kind is is a serious medical issue that warrants a thorough clinical intervention. But opiate addiction in particular has become the face of addiction (and overdose) since the late 1990s. Simply put, when it comes to opiates, every use is potentially deadly. Every 9 minutes someone fatally overdoses on medication or opiate drugs like heroin.
Using opiates is devastating to the body and mind even when it is not fatal. It’s not ever recommended to “wait for someone to hit the bottom” when it comes to narcotic medications like OxyContin, oxycodone, percocet, fentanyl, Vicodin (hydrocodone), or heroin.
- Periods of intense elation or euphoria

- Social withdrawal or isolation
- Taking opiates even after pain symptoms have subsided
