Today opiates and opioids are one of the leading causes of deaths resulting from overdose. The term opiates and opioids are often used interchangeably, however, opiates are naturally derived prescription pain medications whereas opioids are semi-synthetic or synthetic drugs manufactured in a lab that resembles their natural opiate counterparts.

The body has it’s own natural pain relief system however when opioids are taken, they hijack this pain system creating a higher tolerance and preventing the natural chemicals known as endorphins from working appropriately.

Americans make up approximately five percent of the world’s population but is responsible for 80% of the consumption of the world’s opioid supply and therefore have one of the largest opioid crises in the world.
