Where to Attend Rehabilitation for OxyContin Abuse?
Drug abuse can start as innocently as a prescription from your doctor. Because the drug helps patients overcome severe problems, whether physical or emotional, the temptation to ignore the recommended dosage is very high.
OxyContin is one of the prescription meds that can go from ally to enemy without the user even realizing. Due to its effects, patients are prone to build up a tolerance to it and start abusing it.
Recognizing you have a problem, educating yourself and reaching out for help are the first steps in any treatment.
How Addictive Is OxyContin?
OxyContin is one of the most addictive prescription drugs. As an opiate-derivative, this substance is similar to morphine and heroin. Heavy users of OxyContin have discovered that snorting or injecting the drug gives a high comparable to heroin, and often use it as the cheaper alternative.
Combined with alcohol or other antidepressants, OxyContin can be fatal if taken in high doses. The signs of OxyContin abuse include drowsiness, a feeling of sedation, lightheadedness, constipation, low blood pressure, respiratory suppression, headaches, dry mouth, and sweating to name just a few.
Is Detoxification Needed to Stop Using it?
Most treatments for OxyContin abuse develop through the course of three stages: withdrawal or detoxification, rehab which includes counseling and therapy, and recovery, which is a lifelong process. However, treatments and medications may vary depending on the treatment center the patient chooses to attend.
What exactly happens during the detox process?
Detoxification will involve the administration of medication that will provide the body with a low dose of opioids that will not give the user the typical high of OxyContin. The medication can then continue to be administered, slowly tapering it off over time.
The first step of every detox program is a medical assessment of the patient. A doctor will need to determine the severity of the addiction by asking a series of questions, such as:
- How long have you taken the medication?
- Have you taken any other drugs?
- Do you drink alcohol?
- What are your alcohol and drug habits?
- Do you have any other health issues and are you currently taking any other medication?
A physical examination will also be required. After the physician acquired all the necessary data, they will create a treatment plan specifically for the patient’s needs.
As far as medication is concerned, this might include methadone, buprenorphine, naltrexone, or naloxone, which are designed to ease withdrawal symptoms.
Do I Need Inpatient Drug Rehab?
OxyContin addiction risks and consequences can be deadly. If you or a loved one are dealing with it, it is crucial to address the problem as soon as possible. The best way to get through everything is by checking in at a rehabilitation center. Therapy, support groups, and medication are essential for recovery, and being in a secluded environment, free of temptations, can help the patient get through the withdrawal and rehab process sooner.
What Are the Health Risks of Long-Term Use of OxyContin?
People who have used OxyContin for an extended period may experience the following physical and mental symptoms:
- Heart failure
- Limb swelling
- Coma or death
What Are the Options for Paying for Treatment?
The cost of treatment is something many people take into account before choosing an appropriate facility where they will treat their addiction. Prices typically vary between centers, according to the type of facility, its location and amenities, the treatments they provide, and the program size and length.
Medicaid, Medicare, state-financed health insurance and private insurance are some of the methods through which you can pay for rehab treatments. In some cases, however, it is not enough to pay the entire sum, in which case, patients still have a few more options for financing their treatment, such as accessing personal savings or arranging a payment plan with the rehab center.
While OxyContin is highly effective in managing anxiety, prolonged use can lead to addiction and, by consequence, to a variety of new problems. Enrolling in a drug rehab facility is the first step toward rehabilitation. Keep in mind that recovery doesn’t end the moment you walk out the facility’s door. You will have to commit to a drug-free life to maintain the results you’ve worked so hard to achieve.
