With addiction comes high tolerance which often leads to the individual taking higher doses each time to achieve the same effect. For a relative or friend, staging an initial intervention for a loved one has been highly effective in facing the addiction. For an individual, admitting to the addiction and seeking treatment is often times the first step to fighting Opiate addiction.
