I understand your point, and agree that rapid addiction occurs in a lot of people. Just read my post above. But there are schools of thought that some people are deficient in endogenous opioids and that this is the root of their mood disorder. There definitely are some instances where judicious use of opioids is appropriate in psychiatry under close supervision. And I'm not so sure I agree with your inference that a physical pain disorder is more "real" than a mental illness. I think most of us here would agree that the anguish of mental illness can be very "painful" indeed.
