Overdoses from opioids now kill more people than car accidents. But this does not have to be your story. A full recovery is possible at Forward Health in Ohio.
Opioids are a class of drugs that include illegal drugs like heroin, synthetic opioids like fentanyl and prescription pain relievers like oxycodone and hydrocodone. All opioids are chemically related and interact with opioid receptors in the brain. Although these drugs can be taken safely to treat pain, they can be habit-forming.
The National Institute on Drug Abuse reports that more than 2 million Americans abuse opioids and more than 90 people die every day from opioid use. We are currently facing an opioid epidemic, with more Americans dying from accidental drug overdoses than car accidents, firearms, homicides or HIV/AIDS.
