Oxycodone Addiction and Recovery

Tarzana Treatment Centers provides drug treatment for Oxycodone addiction, including drug detox. If you already know that you or a loved one needs help, contact us for drug treatment here. If you need more information, read the article below.

Oxycodone addiction usually results from legitimate beginnings. Brand names for Oxycodone are OxyContin, Roxicodone, M-oxy, ETH-Oxydose, Oxyfast, and OxyIR. This powerful medication is used to relieve severe pain. But prolonged use and tolerance can mean higher doses leading to Oxycodone withdrawal symptoms upon cessation of use. At this point, the drug addiction calls for medically detoxing in a drug treatment center. Residential drug treatment centers offer opiate drug detox to combat opiate withdrawal symptoms resulting from drug addiction. Since drug addiction is the problem, rather than drug abuse, aftercare is recommended at a drug treatment center whether it be outpatient or residential drug treatment.

When recreational drug abuse of Oxycodone occurs, the chances are that other drug addictions are present. Drug abusers are aware that they might benefit from drug treatment. For those who were prescribed Oxycodone for pain management and now suffer from Oxycodone addiction, opiate detox at a residential drug treatment center followed by drug rehab seems absurd. They see drug addiction as a problem for junkies suffering opiate withdrawals on the sidewalk. But the truth is that opiate withdrawal symptoms are the same for them both.

Oxycodone is used properly in the most severe of pain management cases. Oxycodone is a powerful opiate, and highly addictive, therefore the consequence of opiate addiction is always a possibility. Oxycodone can be a miracle to a patient whose life had been put on hold due to severe pain. Tolerance lowers the effectiveness of opiates, so the patient may take higher doses and/or increase the frequency of doses. There can be a reluctance to stop using the drug for fear of resuming a painful life, so the patient feels justified in engaging in drug abuse. Problems arise when the patient runs out of the drug before a refill is allowed, and Oxycodone withdrawal symptoms occur. The patient forms a mental "contract" with the drug, granting the opiate withdrawals in exchange for the pain relief benefits. This, by definition, is drug addiction and requires medical drug detoxing and residential drug treatment for aftercare is recommended.

It is fortunate that Oxycodone addiction can be stopped early in its process for pain relief patients. When Oxycodone is used more often or in higher doses than prescribed, this is drug abuse. Awareness and admission of the problem at this point limits the severity of the drug addiction. Drug treatment in the early stages of Oxycodone addiction with drug detox softens opiate withdrawal symptoms and possibly reduces the need for residential treatment for aftercare. Residential treatment centers typically offer outpatient treatment for these patients.

Opiate detox by medically detoxing from Oxycodone addiction is necessary to first relieve Oxycodone withdrawal. Next, residential drug treatment centers may recommend residential or outpatient treatment, depending on the extent that drug rehab is needed. Oxycodone addiction can be addressed early if a patient admits there is a problem with drug abuse and a need for drug rehab. The most severe cases may call for intervention by family members and friends. In any case, Oxycodone addiction requires some form of drug rehab.

Tarzana Treatment Centers offers specialized drug treatment programs to address the various aspects of Oxycodone abuse and recovery, including drug detox. Please call us for drug treatment at 888-777-8565 or contact us by email here.
