Opioid withdrawal, stress or cues associated with opioid consumption can induce opioid craving. If opioids are not available, opioid‐dependent patients usually search for alternative drugs. Because several non‐opioid drugs stimulate the endogenous opioidergic system, this concept may explain their frequent use by opioid‐dependent patients. We hypothesized that non‐opioid drugs alleviate opioid withdrawal symptoms and are therefore consumed by opioid addicts. We asked 89 opioid‐dependent… Expand
