Oxycontin Addiction Treatment

Oxycontin (AKA Oxycodone) is a very potent opiate that is extracted from poppy plants, like morphine or heroin. It is legally prescribed by doctors for patients who need pain relief. This drug is classified as an analgesic, meaning it can alter the way your brain responds to pain without leaving any anesthetic effects.

But Oxycontin is also a narcotic substance and taking it can be habit forming. Oxycodone is found in many prescription painkiller medications that include:

  • Percodan (with aspirin)
  • Oxycontin
  • Roxicodone
  • Percocet (with acetaminophen)

This substance is also called by other names like Hillbilly Heroin, Oxy 80s, Oxycontin, and Oxy.

Dangers of Oxycontin Addiction

Being a medicinal opioid, Oxycontin binds to the receptors in your central nervous system and your body’s naturally-occurring opioids such as enkephalins and endorphins.

Since this substance is abused frequently, its effects go beyond providing pain relief. When it is abused, Oxycontin creates a feeling of relaxation and euphoria. A dangerous cycle is established because each time the user takes the drug his tolerance increases; this means more and more of the drug is needed to achieve the same intensity. On and on it goes until a user finds himself dependent on the drug, psychologically and physically.

As he continues to use Oxycontin, his body develops a certain tolerance to its effects. This includes its therapeutic benefits. Even men using Oxycontin correctly according to prescription instructions run a risk of becoming addicted.

Adverse effect of long-term Oxycontin abuse:

  • The functioning of the brain slows down
  • The brain may even stop its endorphin production
  • Severe pain
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Sleepiness
  • Hearing loss
  • Nausea or constipation

The Need for Oxycontin Addiction Treatment

His House urges anyone who suspects they or a loved one is experiencing opiate addiction to undergo Oxycontin addiction treatment. The longer a patient delays in beginning his recovery process, the more difficult the process can get.

Specialized withdrawal treatment and Oxy detox is essential, since Oxycontin addiction causes intense withdrawal symptoms such as:

  • Joint pain
  • Constant sweating
  • Heart palpitations
  • Diarrhea
  • Insomnia
  • Fever
  • Nausea
  • Muscle and joint pains
  • Hypertension

Opiate withdrawal is nearly impossible to endure without professional help; the feelings of sickness are so intense many addicts need close medical supervision.

Oxy Addiction Treatment

Oxy treatment in His House Oxycontin treatment centers is usually done in several phases.

  • Admit that you are addicted to Oxycontin. This is the initial phase of the treatment.  Without recognizing that you have a problem, you cannot proceed to the second phase of the treatment.  Most addicts find this to be the most difficult phase the recovery process.  Healing cannot begin until you hurdle this phase of your treatment.

By calling His House treatment specialists, you can begin the assessment process.  The medical and addiction treatment specialists at our facilities will need to evaluate your condition so that they can recommend an appropriate treatment program based on your psychological and physical health.  If the treatment program is to be successful, it must be tailored to your needs.
