Opioid medications help control acute pain, such as pain you experience after surgery, back pain, joint pain, etc. There are risks when the medications are used incorrectly. When opioids travel through your blood system and attach to receptors in your brain, cells release signals that silence your perception of pain and boost your feelings of pleasure.
And that is what becomes very addictive in a short period of time.
