​Opiates cover a huge variety of drugs, ranging from legal drugs such as Fentanyl, Codeine and Morphine to illegal drugs such as Heroin and Opium.

Examples of opiates include:

Oxycodone (trade names include: OxyContin and Percocet).
Hydrocodone (trade names include: Vicodin and Lortab).

You may hear the term opioid in reference to prescription opiates. Technically, the concept of opiates encompasses drugs naturally derived from the active narcotic components of the opium poppy, whereas the opioid label includes synthetic and semi-synthetic drugs that are modified versions of these opiate building blocks. Opioid is usually used in reference to prescription drugs. The terms opiates and opioids are often used interchangeably, however.

Heroin is a highly addictive, illegal drug. It is used by millions of addicts around the world who are unable to overcome the urge to continue taking this drug every day of their lives—knowing that if they stop, they will face the horror of withdrawal. Heroin (like opium and morphine) is made from the resin of poppy plants. Milky, sap-like opium is first removed from the pod of the poppy flower. This opium is refined to make morphine, then further refined into different forms of heroin. Most heroin is injected, creating additional risks for the user, who faces the danger of AIDS or other infection on top of the pain of addiction.
