Overcoming an opioid addiction
Transcript - Overcoming an opioid addiction
[Text on screen: Overcoming an opioid addiction.]
Narrator: "An opioid addiction can be agonizing. You can't stop yourself."
[A single black dot moves across a white backdrop with increasing agitation.]
Narrator: "That's because addiction is a condition that affects the brain. The only way to treat it is to get help."
[Other black dots of different sizes appear. As the camera zooms out, the dots form a pixelated image of the face of a doctor.]
Narrator: "And help can come in many forms, from counselling to medication-assisted treatments, at home or in a centre. The important thing to remember is, you are not alone. Talk to your doctor and make a plan that's right for you."
[Text on screen: Make a plan that's right for you. Learn more at Canada.ca/Opioids.]
