Identifying drug use and addiction can be difficult. Behaviors and signs will differ from person-to-person and are dependent on the drug of choice.
Prescription drugs such as oxycodone and morphine, as well as illicit drugs like heroin and fentanyl, all belong to a group of drugs called opioids. Opioid use and abuse will cause people to exhibit many physical symptoms. These are: drowsiness, intermittent nodding off, passing out, and/or constricted/pin-point pupils. Minimizing access to opioids for drug users and those at-risk for addiction is a necessary step in prevention.
