Opioids Treatment Program

What is an Opioid?

Opioids are substances that produce similar effects and bind to the same receptor sites as morphine. Created to anesthetize and for pain relief, opioids were sought after for the euphoric feeling they produce. Opioids are man-made chemicals used for pain relief. They can come in many forms and can be administered in a variety of ways, such as orally, nasally, intravenously and can even be smoked. The most commonly abused opioid in the world is hydrocodone, more commonly known under the brand name of Vicodin. The fact that hydrocodone is the most prescribed opioid across the globe would account for the amount of people who abuse prescription Vicodin. All opioids have potential to become habit forming when the drug is abused. While prescription painkillers are the most abused form of opioids available, there is a greater concern to those who are buying drugs off the street. Those who become addicted to opioid prescription painkillers are also at risk of becoming addicted to heroin. Many who start off addicted to painkillers eventually begin using heroin as it is cheaper and a more potent high. A problem arises in this situation. The problem is that a vast majority of heroin sold on the street today is cut with an opioid known as fentanyl. Fentanyl is 100 times stronger than morphine and 50 times stronger than heroin. The risk of opioid overdose is huge when mixing such powerful respiratory depressants. If that were not bad enough, in recent years heroin has begun being cut or outright replaced with carfentanil. Carfentanil is used in a veterinary setting as anesthesia for large animals, such as elephants. The drug dealers that are selling these drugs have no regard for their customers. They use powerful opioids such as fentanyl and carfentanil because they are cheaper and easier to obtain than pure heroin. These synthetic opioids are so powerful that they can send an individual into overdose in such small quantities, resulting in respiratory arrest and eventually death.

Opioid Addiction in New Hampshire

Addiction to opioids in New Hampshire has been on a steady rise. Since 2013, fatal overdoses have been increasing year after year. In 2018 alone, 412 people lost their lives due to opioid related overdoses*. Many young teenagers attending schools in Manchester, NH became addicted to opioids. It was so bad that in July of 2020, the Manchester School District joined in on the lawsuit against OxyContin manufacturer, Purdue Pharma, in their role in the opioid crisis of America. The Manchester School District decided to join the lawsuit due to how deeply the opioid crisis had affected the young student population over the years. Opioid Addiction does not merely target the young. There is no discrimination with opioid addiction. It takes the young, middle aged and old alike.

Those who abuse opioids soon develop a tolerance and not long after that will become addicted to the drug. The opioid addicted individual will abuse opioids in greater and greater quantities as their need for more of the drug increases. Those suffering from opioid addiction isolate themselves from family and friends as they try to hide their problem.

The ability to function without an opioid in their system will soon become non-existent for the individual as their body has developed a full-blown chemical dependence to opioids. The opioid addicted individual will require the aid of addiction specialists to break free from the hold the drug has on them. To try and stop using on their own will be next to impossible.
