For readers looking for the lowdown on opioids, this book delivers the facts, including how opioids affect the brain and why something as innocent as a painkiller can lead to a heroin addiction. This practical guide includes tips for coping with pain without resorting to opioids, and resources for those who are facing opioid addiction.
