||Morphine is a highly potent opiate analgesic drug and is the principal active agent in opium. Morphine acts directly on the CNS to relieve pain and is one of the most popular analgesics for the control of severe pain. Morphine is a highly addictive substance, both psychologically and physically. The psychological dependence associated with morphine addiction is complex and protracted. Psychological withdrawal from morphine is a very long and painful process(16).
