One thought on “Why are some people more susceptible to opioid addiction?

    This medicine is very alternative and doesn’t activate the opioid receptor the way that buprenorphine and methadone do, but instead blocks the euphoric/sedative effects of opioids. It can be taken orally or as a once-a-month injection. Your system must be completely free of all opioids before beginning naltrexone. Methadone, when administered properly, is included in treatment with counseling and is always provided in a clinic setting. It helps to block the effects of opioids and to reduce cravings. For example, caffeine is a reinforcing drug — people like the effects. However, for a few people opioids create a pleasurable effect. Typically, opioids produce pain relief, which is good after surgery. Nobody is quite sure why one person becomes addicted to opioids and not another.
