Prevention and Treatment
Opioid Use Disorder, or OUD, results from excessive use of an opioid, which affects a person’s every day life. It is an addiction that can develop after repeated opioid use. OUD can affect people from all walks of life, who may use any of a wide range of drugs from different sources, including street drugs like fentanyl, or heroin, illegally purchased opioids, and painkillers which may be used in hospital situations— like codeine or Oxycontin. Anyone can be at risk for developing OUD if they are using an opioid.
