Over the next few days, we’ll explore the history of opioids through 4 short videos. We’ll learn about the expansion of opioids in medicine, how they’ve changed over the years, and how they’ve been both amazingly positive as really effective painkillers and devastating to individuals and social orders.

It’s a fascinating history that stretches back thousands of years (earliest accounts from 3400 BCE). We’ll see the evolution from raw opium latex to the powerful drugs derived from opium today, and witness our increasing addiction as opioids became available in more and more powerful preparations.
