Opioids

Opioids are drugs prescribed to treat severe pain, but some people use opioids to get high. Some commonly used opioids include fentanyl, morphine, heroin, methadone, and oxycodone. Pharmaceutical companies design opioids for use as medicines. Opioids can be made in illegal labs for sale on the street or online. Getting drugs from a non-medical source such as a friend, ordering online, or a drug dealer is very risky and potentially life-threatening. There is no way to know how toxic they may be. Drugs should only be bought or obtained from a local pharmacy or a registered healthcare provider. Opioids are produced legally and illegally, and both can be misused.
