What Is An Opioid?
Opioids include legally prescribed drugs used for pain relief, such as oxycodone, hydrocodone, codeine, morphine, and many others. They can also include illegal drugs such as heroin and fentanyl. They interact with nerve cells in the brain and body. Because they produce euphoria in addition to pain relief, they are prone to misuse. For more information on opioids, click here.
