What is an Opioid? An opioid (sometimes called opiate) drug is a prescription drug that is used to relieve pain.  They are derived from the poppy plant and are prescribed under the more commonly known names of codeine, morphine, hydrocodone and oxycodone, as well as others.  Many do not realize that the same ingredient used to make these prescription medications is chemically altered into the illegal drug heroin.  Often times, heroin addiction starts by taking opioid prescription medications.
