> Opioids don't take away pain. They take you away from the pain. That's how they work.

Who taught you this? You might want to read up on the neurobiology of nociception, and how and where opioids affect it.

> Some people don't think of this as euphoria - a brightening/lift in mood - but the actual neuro-psychological effect is the same for everyone.

This logic would be more applicable were everyone's psychobiologies to be identical. They manifestly are not. I wish I could provide statistics, but euphoria is not experienced by everyone who takes oxycodone at medically relevant dosages. I have personally seen oxycodone effectively reduce pain without producing euphoria in both of the people I know who used it. Out of 10 people, how many will experience euphoria? I really don't know. If I remember, I'll discuss this issue with my mother's orthopaedic surgeon.

Regarding the rest of your post, your suppositions and theories are interesting.
