The American Psychiatric Association (APA) distinguished drug abuse from drug dependence. Drug dependence is when you need one or more drugs to function. Drug abuse is seen as the moderate or initial stage of unrestrained drug use that resulted in dependence. People believed that reliance is a more serious issue than abuse.
Opioid addiction brings many consequences to all aspects of an individual’s life. These include:
- Social problems
- Work problems
- Financial Problems
- Adverse Health Consequences
- Involvement in criminal activity, as the perpetrator and/or victim
- Death from overdose or suicide
Most of the time, it can be very challenging to stop opioid dependence. You need the determination and commitment to follow through with sessions and treatments. Fortunately, the above-mentioned effects may be treated through Opioid Addiction Treatment.
