Oxycodone

Holistic Oxycodone Addiction Treatment Center

End your battle with oxycodone abuse today with our medically-assisted, patient-focused detox program

Oxycodone is a potent, semi-synthetic opiate used for moderate to severe pain relief in post-operation patients and those with more ongoing pain like cancer patients. Like all prescription opioid pain relievers, oxycodone is extremely addictive.

Your body adjusts quickly to the levels of oxycodone in your body so that the same amount of the drug won’t have the same effect as it used to, and you build a tolerance to the drug. This causes the user to seek out more of the substance to achieve the desired effects.

If you have been regularly using oxycodone and you stop for whatever reason, you will likely experience withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal can happen within hours of the last dose.

Common symptoms of oxycodone withdrawal are:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Depression
  • Diarrhea
  • Sweating
  • Anxiety
  • Shaking
  • Muscle aches
  • Increased heart rate

Withdrawal from oxycodone will likely be different for each person, and it depends on the amount of drug taken for how long and how often. Oxycodone withdrawal can be particularly intense since it has both physical and psychological effects, so it’s important to seek help from a medical professional.

The first step in our oxycodone addiction treatment program is a medical detox with a licensed doctor to keep patients as safe and comfortable as possible. After the medical detox is complete, we move on to the next steps in the rehab process.

How do I know if I’m addicted to oxycodone?

Oxycodone is found in brand-name drugs like OxyContin, OxyIR, Percodan, and Percocet.

Many people are prescribed oxycodone for pain management, making them at risk for developing a tolerance and dependence oxycodone. Those addicted to oxycodone or other prescription opiates are 40 times more likely to develop a heroin abuse problem.

Anyone who has started to use the drug more than is prescribed, for reasons other than prescribed, or using oxycodone that isn’t prescribed to them display signs of addiction.

There are long-term side effects of using oxycodone for both your physical and mental health:

  • Heart failure
  • Constipation
  • Insomnia
  • Depression
  • Coma
  • Swelling in limbs
  • Death

If you have any or several of these physical or behavioral symptoms, please contact Harris House today at 314-328-7938 to talk with one of our counselors about an evaluation and admission.
