Overcoming an addiction to opioids, such as heroin, morphine, or prescription painkillers, can be the biggest struggle that an individual will face during his or her lifetime. Many people quickly feel engulfed in what feels like a never-ending cycle of addiction and abuse. Every facet of their lives becomes taken over by addiction and they are left with broken homes, tarnished occupations, and shattered relationships. The physical and emotional tolls that addiction can take on those trapped in its grasp can escalate tragically to a fatal point if an overdose takes place.
