The Process of Treating Oxycontin Addiction
While Oxycontin is often prescribed for treating pain from injuries, muscle pain and arthritis, Oxycontin addiction is a serious issue. The medication should only be taken safely in limited amounts, under the careful supervision of a licensed physician. Unfortunately, because Oxycontin enables users to experience mood-altering effects, many abuse this drug. If you or a loved one suffer from Oxycontin addiction, our rehabilitation treatment center can be tremendously beneficial in helping to restore a healthier and safer life.
Oxycontin addiction is considered to be an illness. If you find yourself compulsively using this drug, it is likely that you suffer from this disease. Those addicted to Oxycontin will find that they encounter serious consequences to their body, mental outlook, financial status and social interactions. In addition, Oxycontin can lead to various negative physical side effects such as constipation, confusion, dizziness and headaches. Ultimately, this drug can even lead to death.
While self-administered detox from Oxycontin is possible, it is safer and more realistic to have success with detox at a residential treatment center. During detox, you can expect symptoms such as anxiety, tremors, hot and cold flashes and even nausea and vomiting. For this reason, medically supervised withdrawal has the greatest success.
Our treatment program will also provide you with therapy to overcome your illness, in the form of group therapy and/or one-on-one sessions. Our experienced professionals will help you to understand the nature of your Oxycontin addiction. Once you gain an understanding of emotional triggers that lead to your drug use, it will be easier to stay clean in the future.
Successful treatment for Oxycontin addiction generally includes detox, education, counseling and a treatment plan for continuing to fight addiction once you return home. It is indeed possible to break free from Oxycontin addiction, and it only makes sense to trust those who have helped others to successfully achieve this goal.
