OxyCodone is a prescription pain medication and a brand name of the opioid oxycodone. Used for treating moderate to severe pain, OxyCodone comes in tablet form in a variety of strengths. Used correctly and with medical supervision, it’s a powerful tool against chronic pain. However, OxyCodone – like every other opioid – is also highly addictive, causing a rise in the need for Oxytocin addiction treatment centers.
Merely because a drug is manufactured in a lab under strict regulations, prescribed by a medical professional and available at a pharmacist counter doesn’t mean it’s risk-free. OxyCodone is a popular drug of abuse, and has contributed to the epidemic of drug overdose deaths in the United States.
Sovereign Health provides OxyCodone addiction treatment for teen and adults patients across the United States. Our staff uses evidence-based and holistic modalities to help patients overcome their addiction. In addition, we provide comprehensive treatment for any mental illness, trauma and eating disorders that may be contributing to the addiction.
Like other opioids, OxyCodone is abused because it can create a sense of euphoria in users. OxyCodone can also cause very unpleasant withdrawal symptoms when users stop taking it after prolonged use, creating situations where people abuse the drug simply to avoid withdrawing rather than turning to Oxytocin rehab.
OxyCodone is commonly prescribed in the form of time-release pills. One of the drug’s main marketing points is its ability to release its active ingredients over a 12-hour period. For a more powerful high, some users grind the pills into a powder and inject or snort the powder. This is very dangerous, as sudden, large doses of OxyCodone can be fatal.
