Introduction 1.

 In 2019, nearly 50,000 people in the United States died from opioid-involved overdoses.1 The misuse of and addiction to opioids—including prescription pain relievers, heroin, and synthetic opioids such as fentanyl—is a serious national crisis that affects public health as well as social and economic welfare. (NIH, 2021). Opioid medication is prescribed for severe pain after surgery, help patient to stop using drugs, get through withdrawal, and cope with cravings. Many people start using drugs to forget a little about the depression in which they live, or in some way to satisfy the lack of personality, or company because they feel very lonely. But after the effect passes, they return to their previous state, which causes them to continue consuming to avoid their reality. Many do it out of curiosity, or to follow friends. For whatever reason, many reach a point where they think there is no way out than to continue consuming. Usually, most of these cases is the family who unconditionally helps them to seek for the help they need to leave that world of suffering and recover their lives and family. Opioid addiction recovery is a long process sometime during treatment and after, most cases need psychologically therapy to success.

I spent five months at the hospital having all type of test including four types of biopsies, doctors could not fund the reason of the severe pain/fever. The only medication taking the pain way was the Dilauid, all that time on the hospital bed I was only thinking went the time comes up for my next doses, I really depending on that drug. I end it on two major’s surgeries on my stomach, where they find I was suffering from a lot of ulcers, they took 36 inches of my intestines, my appendix and half of my Ileum. After surgery more drugs were prescribed, until my my mother said is enough and with her help, I started stretching the pills less and less and I managed to get out of that stage in my life, but every time I went to see the surgeon, she only asked me if I need more medicines. I concluded, opioid addiction recovery is a long process sometime during treatment and after, most cases need psychologically therapy to success. On this case I select writer’s experience with the subject, demonstrating that we cannot judge people, I have never used any drug before and because a was sick look what happen to me.
