    • Why Are Opioids So Addictive?
      There are two kinds of opioids – legal and illegal drugs. Legal opioids are pain relievers that a doctor may prescribe like codeine, morphine, oxycodone (OxyContin®), Hydrocodone (Vicodin®), etc. Illegal opioids are synthetic, such as fentanyl and heroin. When taken as directed, prescription products may be safe, but many people have fallen into the trap of addiction with these drugs, as they trigger feelings of euphoria. Opioid prescriptions can quickly lead to addiction and experimentation with illegal drugs.
    • What Is Fentanyl?
      Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is 50 to 100 times more powerful than morphine. Its potency is one of the many reasons people become so addicted to it so quickly. Fentanyl is one of the most abused and the most dangerous opioids.
