How to Get a Loved One into Rehab for Percocet Addiction
Percocet is a narcotic pain reliever and an analgesic. It is derived from opium and is part of the opioid drug class. These drugs bind to the opioid receptors in the brain, flooding the user with an intense, warm and fuzzy euphoric feeling, and blocking their feelings of pain. Unfortunately, the euphoric feeling is addictive and tolerance to medications like Percocet happens quickly. While a person’s pain may be blocked after a dose of the medication, their tolerance won’t allow for the experience of euphoric feeling. In turn, they begin taking more of the drug to find the high and soon find themselves addicted and dependent on Percocet.
How addictive is Percocet?
Opioid painkillers like Percocet are incredibly addictive. Opioid drug abuse has increased so much in the last decade that the United States government has declared it an emergency.
What are the chances of overdosing with Percocet?
Overdose rates to drugs like Percocet have risen sharply in recent years. In 2016, the opioid drug epidemic killed more Americans than the Vietnam War. It’s far too easy for someone to take too much Percocet without realizing their tolerance levels. They may even forget how much they’ve taken and overdose. Also, Percocet doesn’t interact well with other drugs, especially alcohol. Many overdose deaths are attributed to people taking the pills with alcohol or mixing them with other prescription opioids or central nervous system suppressants.
Does someone need to attend detox for Percocet abuse and addiction?
Abrupt cessation without medical help is dangerous, and drugs like Percocet give users intense cravings, long after they’ve achieved sobriety. In a medical detox center, patients are put on a tapering off schedule or are given replacement medications like methadone to reduce cravings and the dangerous, intense symptoms of withdrawal.
How can someone pay for treatment?
Drug rehab centers are staffed with knowledgeable professionals who know how to work with insurance companies to get the coverage their patients need. Also, most rehab centers will offer financing for persons who qualify, and the U.S. government provides low-cost, and in some cases, free treatment for addiction and rehab.
What can family and friends do to support their loved one in rehab for Percocet addiction?
Family and friends support is critical for recovery. Persons who are in rehab need to know they are supported, and attending therapy sessions with your loved one can go a long way toward showing them you care and are there for them during this challenging time in their life.
When encouraging your loved one to get help, don’t approach them from a place of anger, but from a place of patience and love. Point out characteristics your loved one has that show they can complete rehab and beat drug addiction.
Supporting someone and walking with them through the pain of drug addiction is incredibly difficult and tiring. Don’t hesitate to get therapy for yourself. If you know someone struggling with addiction, reach out to a qualified rehab specialist today and get help for yourself and your loved one.
