What are Opioid Injuries?

Although opioid painkillers are designed to alleviate pain and suffering from severe trauma, they pose severe addiction and health risks to users. Opioids are a type of pain relief medication that acts on opioid receptors in the brain to mimic morphine-like effects. While opioids may minimize pain, they are also highly addictive and have been linked to a number of serious and potentially life-threatening outcomes.

Specific Issues Associated with Opioids :

  • Heart Complications
  • Respiratory Depression
  • Addiction
  • Death related to overdose and cardiac arrest.
