7 Signs Of Opioid Addiction


A horrible opioid crisis is devastating our country. It’s estimated more than 118 people perish every day in the United States from an opioid-related overdose. When someone becomes addicted to opioids, the danger of overdose greatly increases.

Opioid addiction is defined by obsessive use and a lack of control. Once addicted, the urges to use opioids are so intense it can be hard to stop. Continuing to use opioids despite major consequences is the ultimate sign of addiction.

3 Healthy Activities For Those In Addiction Recovery


Having a lot of free time for a recovering addict is not as simple and carefree as it is for someone who has never struggled with an addiction. Idle time can lead to boredom and temptations to use.

From that point, it’s only a short hop in a person’s thought process from sobriety to deciding to use because they don’t have anything better to do or that using “just this once”won’t hurt their recovery because they have managed to be clean and sober for a certain period of time. For these reasons, it’s important to have healthy activities incorporated into an addiction recovery plan for long-term success.
