What Are Opioids?

Opioid drugs are derived from poppy plants. They’re typically prescribed for severe pain relief. They can be addictive and lead to confusion, slowed breathing and can lead to dependency when used incorrectly. Opioid addiction is an ongoing issue that can happen even after short term use.

What is Opioid Addiction?

If you have landed on this page, there is a possibility that you or someone you care about has a problem with opioids. Some of the common warning signs include: 

  • Needing to use more than before to feel the effects 
  • Losing control over how much or how often you use 
  • “Doctor shopping” (going to more than one doctor for opioid prescriptions) 
  • Feeling “flu-like” (headaches, nausea, vomiting, sweating, anxiety, etc.) when you don’t use 
  • Spending too much money on opioids 
  • Isolating yourself from family and friends 

Opioid addiction is a chronic disease of the brain. It can happen after short-term use as well as long-term use. It can even result in an opioid overdose in some circumstances. 

Types of Opioid Addiction

Many types of opioid addiction exist in Canada today. At Newgate 180, we can help you overcome the following addictions:

Oxycodone Addiction

Oxycodone addiction can happen if you’re taking the drug every day. You may find yourself taking larger amounts of the drug each day to still receive the same effects. Notable effects of this addiction include trouble sleeping and cramps.

Vicodin Addiction

Vicodin is highly addictive. It may begin as a prescription medicine – it’s often prescribed as a painkiller. However, dependency can often happen due to the high feeling that comes about when taking the drug.

Methadone Addiction

Methadone eases pain. A methadone addiction can occur with frequent use. It can induce feelings of relaxation. Dependency happens as people build a tolerance to methadone.

Fentanyl Addiction

Dependence on Fentanyl happens with Fentanyl addiction. This opioid also eases severe types of pain, but frequent use can lead to a tolerance build-up and even greater use.

What Causes Opioid Addiction?

It is generally accepted that opioid addiction, or addiction to any substance, is not caused by a single factor but rather by a combination of genetic and environmental influences. Risk factors for opioid abuse include both a personal and family history of addiction, sexual abuse and mental health concerns.

A significant percentage of people who become addicted to opioids start out by using them when prescribed by a physician to manage pain. Research has shown that 50% of those who use heroin started out using prescription painkillers.

The bottom line is that if there are problems in your life – or your loved one’s life – due to the use of opioids, now is the time to act, and Newgate 180 can help.

How Do I Know if I’m Addicted to Opioids?

As previously described, opioid addiction has multiple signs. You might feel unwell or downright terrible when you’re not using. You may find that activities you previously enjoyed no longer bring you pleasure.  

Additionally, you could find yourself preoccupied with thoughts of using. You may be spending too much time seeking the drug and neglecting other important aspects of your life. Or you may be neglecting your personal appearance and self-care, too.  

These are just some of the many signs that opioid use is becoming a problem in your life. Other possible signs of opioid abuse include: 

  • You may be snorting or injecting opioids rather than swallowing pills. 
  • You may be buying prescription pills “on the street” and/or may start using other opiates, such as heroin. 
  • You have become secretive and have an increased need for privacy. 
  • You may feel resentful and defensive when loved ones express concern about you. 
  • You may experience excitability, irritability, mood swings and perhaps violent outbursts. 
  • You find yourself using opioids and driving or engaging in other risky behaviour. 
  • You are losing control and feel helpless and ashamed, and have no idea how you ended up in this downward spiral. 

Don’t delay in contacting Newgate 180 if you’re experiencing these behaviours or have seen them in friends or family members.
