Pyro Addiction

What is Pyro?

Pyro is the nickname for the drug N-pyrrolidino etonitazene, a powerful synthetic opioid reportedly 10 times stronger than fentanyl and between 1,000 and 1,500 times stronger than morphine. The synthetic opioid was first reported by Novel Psychoactive Substance (NPS) Discovery in 2021. Its chemical properties closely resemble etonitazene, which is a derivative of Nitazene.

How Does Pyro Addiction Work?

The Center for Forensic Science Research and Education (CFSRE) wrote that Pyro and other drugs with similar chemical properties as fentanyl were being fabricated to create new illegal drugs that would produce the same effects as opioids. When people use opioids, the pills bind to opioid receptors and reduce the amount of pain a person feels. For this reason, opioids have a high potential for abuse and addiction.

Prolonged opioid use can lead to chemical dependency, a process where the user experiences intense cravings or physical withdrawal symptoms when they attempt to limit their usage or quit altogether. Many people use opioids to make the symptoms disappear, which is another sign of addiction that might require a medical detox program to remove the drug from their system safely.
