WHAT ARE OPIOIDS?
The medications oxycodone, hydrocodone, and fentanyl (most often recognized by brand names such as Vicodin®, Percocet®, OxyContin® and Actiq®) are opioid-based painkillers. Opioid dependence and opioid addiction is a public health concern resulting from a dependence on these medications and other drugs such as heroin.
If you or someone you know is addicted to heroin or opiate-based painkillers, or struggles with physiological or psychological dependence associated with these class of drugs, there is no reason to feel stigmatized or embarrassed.
