Abstract:

"Opioids include the illegal drug heroin, synthetic opioids like fentanyl, and prescription pain relievers like oxycodone, hydrocodone, and morphine. Because some people can obtain prescriptions for prescription painkillers, it can be easily obtained and easily abused. In fact, since 2010, opioid use has continually increased in the U.S. and Canada, leading some local governments and organizations to declare an opioid epidemic. This book examines the dangers of opioid abuse and the physical and legal consequences opioid abusers face. It also provides support for those who want to seek treatment or have loved ones with opioid addictions." --
