Stadol is in the Opium Agonist class. Here's the description:

Opiate Agonists (Narcotics)
The opiate drugs are named after their natural source, the opium poppy. The opium poppy contains several active chemicals such as morphine, codeine, and papaverine. Other synthetic opiates' have been produced such as meperidine and methadone. These drugs are often referred to as narcotics and are classfied by the DEA according to their potential for abuse. Heroin, which readily crosses the blood brain barrier, is classified as a C1 drug because of its high potential for abuse. These drugs bind to opiate receptors' found throughout the central nervous system which cause the release of endorphins and encephalins, the bodies natural opiates.
