You may have Addiction involving opioids if you:
As Addiction involving opioid dependency is a primary, chronic brain disease, continuing care is necessary to optimize outcomes and reduce relapse risk after the withdrawal period. Successful withdrawal management and detoxification will be part of the treatment process but should not be seen as an end in itself. Often people are preoccupied with getting off the substance and have difficulty focusing on recovery beyond abstinence. Social and peer support is essential and participation in 12-step groups such as AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) and NA is encouraged. In addition, other recovery actions such as meditation and journaling are recommended as part of the bio-psycho-social-spiritual framework of recovery.
