The Effects of Opiate Addiction

Individuals in Lakewood that consume opiates may be susceptible to nerve damage which may ultimately lead to a decrease in the production of endogenous opiates by brain cells. These are more commonly known as endorphins. Endorphins are responsible for reducing the perception of pain. As endorphins are reduced, the body loses the ability to stop pain. Since opiates also release endorphins into the pleasure centers of the brain, they need to be consumed more in order to reduce the pain and increase dependability on the drug as an external source of endorphins.
