Percocet Addiction Rehab

Percocet Addiction RehabPercocet is a powerful combination of oxycodone and paracetamol that is designed to relieve intense pain. While it is effective and helps many people, many Albuquerque residents also become addicted. Users may have begun taking the drug recreationally and are now unable to resist the impulse to take yet another pill, while other addicted users began unwisely increasing their dosage on their own to increase the effectiveness of the drug. This is a dangerous drug to be addicted to, and recovery will not occur without help.

The Harmful Effects of Percocet

Both oxycodone and paracetamol cause their own set of problems for a Percocet addict. Oxycodone is the addictive substance in Percocet, and paracetamol is supposed to help lessen the chance of addiction. While paracetamol does not contribute to addiction, long-term use causes liver damage and stomach bleeding. If the brain is subjected to frequent or high doses of oxycodone, it creates pseudo-receptors to handle the amount of the drug it receives. These receptors can be shut down after Percocet abuse ends, but they are never destroyed. Former opiate addicts must always be cautious, because their brain has been trained to respond to drugs like Percocet in a certain way.

Treatment Options for Anchorage Percocet Addicts

There are Percocet addiction treatment options available for Anchorage residents, and these options may include the following:

  • Hospitalization. Hospitalization can help during detox which is an often painful experience. Supervision and medical help during detox is offered by many hospitals, although follow up treatment in the form of counseling is generally not included.
  • Outpatient treatment. Outpatient treatment allows recovering users to receive therapy while continuing to participate in daily life in Anchorage. A recovering Percocet addict can still work or attend school while attending counseling sessions. This option is helpful to many people, but it does not remove an addict from a potentially triggering environment and an easy source for relapse.
  • Inpatient treatment. Inpatient treatment requires the recovering Percocet user to remain at a rehab facility for an extended period of time. This is the best choice for long-term recovery, as it provides the most intensive and effective care.
