Morphine Hotline

352.771.2700  24/7, Toll-free, Confidential

Morphine, an opiate compound derived from the opium poppy plant, has gained a notorious reputation for being one of the most commonly abused prescription drugs. This powerful narcotic is often used to relieve moderate to severe pain, usually during cancer treatments and after major surgeries. But even those with pure intentions can easily become hooked on this addictive drug.

If you find yourself reliant on morphine, or know someone who is misusing it, reaching out to a morphine helpline can get you the help you need.
