Opioid addiction is a chronic medical condition characterized by a compulsive urge to use opioids, a class of drugs that includes prescription painkillers and illegal substances like heroin. This addiction can lead to physical dependence, tolerance, and withdrawal symptoms when the drug use is reduced or stopped. Opioid addiction can have severe consequences on an individual's physical and mental health, relationships, and overall quality of life.
