Why Should You Detox from Oxycodone?

The National Safety Council (NSC) has called opioid abuse “the most fatal drug crisis” on record in United States History.” Opioids, such as oxycodone, OxyContin, hydrocodone, and methadone, are extremely addictive substances and frequently prescribed by doctors in America to treat chronic pain. About 1.9 million Americans are addicted to opioids, with 4.3 million people, including adolescents, reporting using opioids for non-medical use at some point in their lives. If you or someone you love is addicted to an opioid, it is important they detox. Oxycodone abuse is serious and can cause death from respiratory suppression or through a dangerous interaction with alcohol or other prescription drugs. If someone with an oxycodone addiction is unable to get the drug, they may suffer dangerous withdrawal symptoms that can include depression, bone pain, diarrhea, chills, nausea, and vomiting. Opioid use is a well-known gateway drug for heroin, which is another extremely dangerous substance. If you are addicted, it is very important to undergo oxycodone detox for your health and longevity.

Join the Oxycodone Detox Program

At WhiteSands Treatment Centers, our goal is to make our detoxing patients stay comfortable and safe. Our team of caring nurses, board-certified physicians, and medical psychiatrists will help patients safely and comfortably through detox. Oxycodone withdrawal can be a dangerous process, which is why it should only be done within the safe environment of a rehabilitation facility. Patients undergoing opioid detox in our treatment center will experience high-quality, personalized care during the entire length of their stay.

In the detox program, patients will be safely weaned from addictive medications as gently as possible. After the detox process is over, patients will participate in a combination of group, individual, and even family counseling, depending on their particular treatment plan. We understand that each patient is unique, which is why we take the time to create an individualized plan for everyone. We want each patient to learn more about their addiction, as well as ways to cope with it and prevent relapse in the future. For dual-diagnosis patients, our counselors will treat their illnesses carefully, making sure to address the mental aspects of their condition. At WhiteSands Treatment Centers, we believe true rehabilitation cannot occur without treating the whole person.
