    Opioids Addiction. Opioids produce a sense of wellbeing or euphoria that can be addictive to some people. Opioids are legitimately used for treating pain. When used for pain relief, many people develop tolerance, meaning they need more and more to get the same effect. Some people go on to develop an addiction to opioids.   As Nancy Campbell, J. P. Olsen, and Luke Walden write in their book, The Narcotic Farm: the Rise and Fall of America’s First Prison for Drug Addicts, the massive prison that housed people dependent on drugs in the middle of the 20th century encapsulates America’s “ambivalence about how to deal with drug addiction.”.

    The term narcotic (/ n ɑːr ˈ k ɒ t ɪ k /, from ancient Greek ναρκῶ narkō, "to make numb") originally referred medically to any psychoactive compound with sleep-inducing properties, and euphoric properties as well. In the United States, it has since become associated with opiates and opioids, commonly morphine and heroin, as well as derivatives of many of the compounds found within. This book is intended for the practising physician wishing to prescribe methadone in the treatment of heroin addiction. It contains the lessons learned by a general practitioner during ten years of practice in this field. Far from being the last word on treatment, it merely represents one physician's approach to a complex problem.
