Opiate dependency can occur from a legitimate prescription regime designed for pain relief purposes. Gradually, as the body’s tolerance to the narcotic grows, physical and psychological dependence can result.

Much like alcoholism and dependency to other drugs, opiate dependency can result in negative consequences such as loss of job, financial hardship and family troubles. Because these medications are so commonly prescribed by doctors for legitimate pain management reasons, it may be difficult for an individual to realize that he or she has grown dependent on the substance.
