Why Unmask Addiction?
You feel guilty for thinking it. You find yourself wondering if it’s real. Someone you know and care about is acting differently – and it could be opioid abuse.
Opioid abuse is hard to spot, especially early on, when it is easy to wear a “mask” of normalcy, but soon the signs start to show. What should you look for?
Some of the signs and symptoms of opioid abuse include:
- Analgesia (feeling no pain)
- Euphoria (feeling high)
- Shallow or slow breathing
- Small Pupils
- Nausea, vomiting
- Itching or flushed skin
- Slurred speech
- Confusion or poor judgment
