Need Help Finding An Oxycontin Detox Center For Oxycontin Withdrawal
Casa Capri is an ideal choice for helping addicts recover from Oxycontin and do an Oxycontin detox. This heavily-abused prescription opiate is very hard to quit, and many addicts who attempt to quit Oxycontin without professional help will relapse. According to a study published in The Lancet, sponsored by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), the average relapse rate for opiates is 52%.
Opiates like Oxycontin are also extremely dangerous if you or a loved one overdoses. Opiates can slow down breathing and heart rate and can be lethal in high enough doses. Also, illegally-obtained pills, which may also contain fentanyl and other opiates that are much more potent than Oxycontin alone, are even more dangerous. 115 people in the United States die from an opiate overdose every single day.
To properly detox from opiates, professional help is recommended. In a clinical setting, addicts can be monitored by qualified professionals 24/7. A controlled environment allows for the restriction of drug access and prevents drug-seeking behavior. This helps prevent relapse.
A clinical oxycontin detox center, such as Casa Capri, also helps addicts who have kicked their habit get the proper post-treatment counseling and care, to help them understand the path forward now that they are clean, and prevent them from falling back into their old habits of addiction.
Understanding Oxycontin Withdrawal – And How Casa Capri Can Help.
If you or a loved one is in need of drug treatment and detoxification, you likely have quite a few questions about the process of ending Oxycontin usage, and the symptoms of withdrawal. Read on, and learn about what you can expect from an Oxycontin detoxification core treatment plan at Casa Capri.
Oxycontin has many severe withdrawal symptoms, which can occur even if opiates have only been used for several weeks. The first symptoms of withdrawal include anxiety and agitation, as well as extreme psychological cravings for opiates. Muscle aches are also quite common and can become quite severe.
Other common early withdrawal effects include flu or allergy-like symptoms such as excess tears (lacrimation), runny nose, and sweating.
The later withdrawal symptoms of Oxycontin addiction are often significantly different from the early signs and include goosebumps, stomach pain and nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and depression.
Withdrawal symptoms tend to start between 12 and 30 hours after the last use of Oxycontin, though this may vary on how heavily the drug is being abused, and how long the addiction has lasted. The majority of physical symptoms will end after about 5-7 days. However, psychological cravings and dependence may persist for much longer, often weeks or months. Proper therapy, community support, and treatment are essential to prevent relapse.
Are There Drugs That Can Be Used To Treat Withdrawal Symptoms And Cravings?
Yes. Typically, these drugs are only available at hospitals and clinical oxycontin detox facilities, which is one of the main reasons that addicts should seek treatment at Casa Capri.
At a clinical oxycontin detox facility, doctors may recommend that Oxycontin users begin tapering off their use of the drug. Discontinuing use of the drug slowly, rather than “cold turkey” can help minimize some of the worst withdrawal symptoms.
Methadone is also another very common drug used to treat withdrawal from opiates. This is because methadone helps address drug cravings, but has fewer adverse physical effects compared to other opiates, such as Oxycontin. It can be used for several days, or up to several months to help addicts safely taper off from their Oxycontin usage.
Naltrexone is also used in clinical settings. This medication blocks opiate receptors in the brain, preventing opiates from bonding to neurotransmitters. It also helps reduce drug cravings, which is one of the most challenging symptoms of withdrawal from opiates.
Other over-the-counter medications can be used to treat issues like nausea and upset stomach, diarrhea, and the other physical symptoms of Oxycontin withdrawal.
How Can I Recover From My Oxycontin Addiction?
Oxycontin detox is only the first step in recovery. Typically, therapy is administered both privately and in group settings, to help addicts understand why they became addicted in the first place – and to minimize their risk of relapsing, and getting back to their old habits once they leave the recovery center.
“Clean living” centers may also be recommended, as well as regular drug tests and accountability meetings at outpatient therapy centers. Accountability and regular check-ins are essential for addicts who may be at risk of relapse.
