Synopsis
Opiate addiction has reached epidemic proportions in the United States and the problem shows no signs of slowing. Overcoming addiction is tough and, with opiates, many find it nearly impossible. Overdose deaths from prescription painkillers have more than tripled over the last decade and this is just a fraction of the problem. In fact, with prescription opiate addiction now shown to be a gateway drug to heroin, the issue is only getting worse. In 2011 alone, nearly 200,000 people in this country tried heroin for the first time, a drug that can be deadly from its first use.

If you or someone you love is addicted to opiates, Opiate Addiction , now in its 2nd Edition, offers a powerful message balanced with both useful information and hope for a way out from its stifling grip. There is no doubt that addiction is a cunning and cruel disease that robs it's victims of nearly everything. Those suffering from opiate addiction are often baffled by its affects on their lives and the devastation that can be wrought in such a short period of time. Loved ones feel helpless and hopeless as they are forced to stand by and watch as someone they care about erodes before their eyes.

Are you looking to move beyond addiction? With a clear approach to providing hard facts and drawing on her own history of opiate addiction and recovery, author Taite Adams is able to give the opiate addict or their loved ones answers to many questions, allay a lot of fears and provide a clear direction for a way out. Some of the areas that are addressed in detail are:

  • The Opiate Addiction Epidemic
  • What are Opiates and How They Work
  • Pain Pills and Painkiller Addiction
  • Prescription Drug Abuse and Chronic Pain
  • Heroin Addiction
  • Opiate Maintenance Drugs and Substitution Therapy
  • Opiate Addiction as a Disease
  • A Way Out for the Opiate Addict
  • Managing Opiate Detox
  • Going to Treatment for Opiate Addiction
  • and Much More
Whether just coming to terms with the idea that there is a "problem", looking for opiate detox help, or considering going to treatment, opiate and heroin addiction help is available in many forms and Opiate Addiction is an invaluable tool to get your questions answered about overcoming addiction and help you move one step closer to freedom and to a better way of life. 2nd Edition Released March 27, 2014.
