What is Opiate Addiction?

What We Mean by “Opiate”
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 it for its pain-relieving and cough-suppressant properties. When misused, however, it can be 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.
