Vicodin Addiction and Recovery

Tarzana Treatment Centers provides drug treatment for Vicodin 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.

Drug addiction can begin in several ways. Vicodin, or Hydrocodone, can be prescribed for pain management and usually works. In some cases, though, Vicodin addiction is the result. Tolerance of the opiate in combination with Hydrocodone withdrawals lead to a kind of drug abuse that can lead to drug addiction. Vicodin addiction needs to be treated with drug detoxification at drug treatment centers, followed best by residential drug treatment for long-term results.

Drug rehabs offer residential drug treatment and drug detoxification for substances from alcohol to heroin. Vicodin addiction results in similar opiate withdrawal symptoms to heroin, so residential drug treatment centers tend to treat the drug addiction with the same drug detoxification.

Since Vicodin addiction begins innocently, under doctor supervision, a patient may not be aware of the Hydrocodone withdrawal symptoms and tolerance the body is experiencing. Often, the patient is unaware of the drug abuse until Vicodin addiction has already set in.

Family and friends notice drug addiction problems before the innocent drug abuser does. They may ask questions about Vicodin addiction, and suggest drug rehab at residential drug treatment centers. But the drug addiction is deceptive. The patient usually sees Hydrocodone as the only answer to the pain management problem, and is more inclined to accept Vicodin withdrawal symptoms as a necessary evil.

So defensiveness of the Vicodin addiction, and behaviors that result from opiate withdrawal symptoms, becomes a daily ritual. Drug treatment or opiate detox is rejected by the drug abuser as unnecessary, and the drug addiction continues. Until there is an admission that drug abuse has led to Vicodin addiction, there is really no hope for recovery.

When Hydrocodone withdrawal symptoms reach intolerable levels, the drug abuser is more inclined to admit that drug treatment is needed. Acceptance of the drug abuse should immediately be supported by family and friends. Drug detoxification at residential treatment centers is the first step. Vicodin withdrawal symptoms are severe, similar to opiate withdrawal from heroin, and lead to further use of the drug that will relieve them. Staff members at residential drug treatment centers are trained to combat the Hydrocodone withdrawal symptoms to ensure a successful opiate detox.

Remember that Vicodin addiction tends to be a lower priority than pain management for the patient, so the problem with this drug addiction lies in long-term recovery. Residential drug treatment is not always necessary. For many, outpatient drug treatment will suffice. In either case, drug treatment is necessary to make Vicodin addiction a higher priority. In drug rehab, a patient can learn from drug treatment center staff how to deal with physical pain as well as avoiding use of opiates. The patient learns that Vicodin withdrawal symptoms increase pain, and lead to further drug abuse. It is important that opiate detox is followed by drug treatment to combat drug addiction after Vicodin withdrawal symptoms are eliminated.

When drug abuse leads to drug addiction and opiate withdrawals, medical drug detoxification at a drug rehab begins the recovery process. Half of the battle is a safe opiate detox in residential drug treatment. For aftercare, residential drug treatment offers the best opportunity for long-term recovery. Treatment centers also offer outpatient drug treatment, which may also be sufficient for Vicodin addiction recovery. In any case, medical drug detoxification for Vicodin withdrawal must be followed by drug rehab at a drug addiction treatment center.

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