Opiates

It is hard to read the news or turn on the television and not hear a story about the growing problem of opiate drugs in the United States. 80% of the opioid drugs in the world are consumed in the U.S. even though it has just 5% of the world’s population. Recent statistics from the National Institute on Drug Abuse says that, on average, 115 people per day die from opioid overdoses. That’s about 42,000 deaths per year. The Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention puts the economic impact of opioid addiction at over $78 billion per year in lost productivity, healthcare, addiction treatment, and law enforcement costs. While these numbers demonstrate the magnitude of the problem, opioid addiction is an issue that has very real one-on-one ramifications. It has many considering a choice of opiate treatment centers for themselves or a loved one.

Common Opiate Drugs

Many become addicted after using opiates to manage pain following a medical procedure. It is estimated that estimated 2 million people in the United States suffer substance use disorders related to prescription opiate painkillers. Research indicates that as high as 29% of the people prescribed prescription painkillers end up abusing them. They should not be underestimated, and the problem doesn’t stop there. Illegal heroin and manufactured fentanyl affect millions more. It is frightening to note that some 80% of people who now use heroin first misused prescription opioids. For the opioid-addicted and their families, it is critical help is sought from the qualified opiate rehab centers.
