Opium (Opioid) Addiction overview

Opioid addiction develops after using opioids regularly for a period of time. Prolonged use of opiates can lead to nerve damage within the brain that causes cells to stop producing endogenous opiates (natural painkillers, known as endorphins). This can lead to an inability of the body to stop pain, because there are no endorphins to mask the pain initially. The degeneration of the nerve cells that reduce pain can lead to a physical dependence on opiates as an external supply source. Signs and symptoms include increased general anxiety, euphoria, psychosis, depression, high blood pressure, decreased appetite, physical agitation, difficulty sleeping, and pain in the bones. The predisposing factors include age, a personal history of substance abuse, family history of substance abuse, cigarette dependency, and psychological stress.
