Opioid & Opiate Addiction Treatment

Opioid and opiate addiction treatment options are available. Opioids and opiates overlap, but are not interchangeable. Opioids are chemicals that are used to reduce pain by affecting opioid receptors on the nerve cells in the brain and body. These include all types: natural, synthetic, and semi-synthetic. Opiates are the opioids derived from natural chemicals, including codeine, morphine and heroin.
 
As such, opioid use disorder – also known as opioid abuse – more broadly includes opiate use disorder. All opioids are highly addictive. Many are originally prescribed by a doctor, but they are often misused for feelings of pleasure or used for a longer period of time than intended. Once a user becomes unable to stop using an opioid or opiate, and that substance interferes with professional and social commitments, it is time to seek help for opioid use disorder.
