Presentation Description

Opioid addiction happens when people abuse opiate drugs and take higher doses than needed for the long term, with or without a prescription. As users become more tolerant of these drugs, it causes physical dependence. Any delay in the intake of these drugs can lead to severe cravings for more frequent doses to achieve the same effect and remain in that state. Otherwise, they experience opioid withdrawal symptoms.
