What is opiate dependence?
Opiate dependence is a disease with physical, psychological, and social consequences, including:
-Physical changes - The need for increasing amounts of opioid to produce the same effect, symptoms of withdrawal, compulsion to use, mood swings, and sleep disturbances.
-Psychological components - A reliance on heroin or other drugs to help you cope with everyday problems. These drugs may also become a necessary part of "feeling good" or "having fun".
-Social consequences - Less contact with important people in your life and an inability to participate in important events due to drug use (e.g, missing days at work, or family obligations). In extreme cases, there may even be criminal and legal implications. You may realize that it's costing you more and more money to obtain these drugs.
There are a variety of factors that can contribute to the continued use of opioids. These include:
-The use of heroin/prescription opiates to escape from or cope with problems
-The need to use increasing amounts of the drugs to achieve the same effect
-The need to use more of the drug(s) to avoid the very unpleasant effects of opiate withdrawal
