Opioid Addiction Treatment in Fort Worth, TX
What Is Opioid Addiction?
Opioid addiction is dangerous, not just for the severe toll it takes on your health and well-being but also because there are so many opioids that are readily available—and easy to abuse.
An opioid is a powerful narcotic because it creates a rush of euphoria while also reducing pain. The most common illicit opiate is heroin, but there are also several types of legal opioids in the form of prescription painkillers. Signs of opioid addiction and dependence include:
- Taking opioids in larger amounts over an extended period of time (tolerance and dependence).
- Inability to stop using the drug, even when it poses harm or risk to yourself or others.

- Overwhelming cravings for the opioid.
- Loss of interest in relationships, hobbies, or other areas of daily life.
- Withdrawal symptoms that occur when you’re not on opioids.
- Failure to fulfill your normal responsibilities; instead, your time is consumed with procuring or using the drug.
