One of the leading causes of drug death everywhere is opioids. Opioids are an incredibly potent type of drug, which is why they cause so many deaths. They are also extremely popular, being abused by more and more people in America every year. Virtually any drug can cause overdose, but only a few are so strong as to make it a common occurrence. Most drugs would require too much to be consumed to make accidental overdose a likely event. But some opioids are so strong that a single pill or a few grains of powder can kill an adult. Before this happens, addicts should seek help from the different substance abuse treatment programs in Scottsdale.
