It is pretty standard procedure for doctors to prescribe opiate pain pills to those who have undergone surgery or who have chronic pain caused by trauma from something like a car accident. These pills work well relieving pain in the short term, but the long term effects are far more problematic. Somebody who uses pain killers over a long period of time will find that their body starts to develop a tolerance to the drug, meaning it takes a larger dosage to feel the effects. Ingesting opiates in large doses has substantial adverse effects on your health and could result in overdose and even death.
Convincing an opiate addict to get help for their substance abuse can be hard because they see the pills as helpful medicine, not harmful narcotics. Many are fearful that the second they stop taking the pills, their pain will come rushing back worse than before.
