The History of Opioids 

The History of Opioids – We will give a historical overview of people and opioids. We will look at when people first started using opioids, how they’ve changed over the years, and ways that they’ve been both amazingly positive as really effective painkillers and devastating to individuals and social orders. We will explore the early accounts of opiate use, addiction, and treatment, and touch on the Opium Wars in China. The evolution from raw opium latex to the powerful drugs derived from opium today traces a clear history of increasing addiction as opioids were available in more and more powerful preparations.
