The Best Ways to Treat Vicodin Addiction
Although a prescription drug, many who suffer from Vicodin addiction are in denial about their problem. Since pain is often the reason why people begin taking Vicodin in the first place, it is easy for abusers to convince themselves that they are only taking the drug to help with their pain. Vicodin addiction can begin at any time in your life, to any gender, for any reason.
One of the first steps in our residential treatment facility is detox. Vicodin detox works in a similar manner as detox for nonprescription drugs and alcohol. When you have been suffering from Vicodin addiction, your body has dangerous toxins that need to be released. The symptoms that occur from this release can include mood swings, irritability, insomnia and depression. Because these symptoms appear 24 to 72 hours after the last dose of the drug, it is essential to be in a safe and trusted environment, like our treatment facility, when they begin.
Experiencing detox at a facility tends to be easier and is more successful than trying to endure it on your own. Our medical specialists are on hand to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible and that you are detoxing safely.
Once your body is free of the toxins, you will be ready to go through the next stage of the treatment process. Trained specialists will help you with recovery through therapy, and your needs will be supported. Our rehab centers also have other beneficial activities such as meditation, yoga and nutritional counseling.
Taking the first steps toward recovery is essential to your well-being and is necessary to break the habit of Vicodin addiction. If you need to overcome Vicodin addiction, our residential treatment programs can help you move on with your life. For more information, please contact us today.
