What is Opiate Addiction?

The word “opiate” commonly is used to describe any drug derived from the opium poppy and includes: morphine, codeine, heroin and pain relievers such as methadone, demerol, hydrocodone and oxycodone. Hydrocodone is marketed under many brand names including Vicodin, Lorcet and Lortab.

Physicians prescribe opiates for pain-relief and as a cough-suppressant. When misused, however, it can become addictive.

Oxycodone is the primary active ingredient in a number of medications prescribed for moderate to severe pain. It is marketed as Oxycontin, Percocet, Percodan, Endocet, Tylox, Roxicet and Roxiprin.
