Treatment for Vicodin Addiction
Vicodin is a prescription opioid-based painkiller. It works by blocking pain receptors in the brain. Doctors often prescribe a short course of Vicodin to patients after a surgery or an injury to relieve pain. But in addition to masking pain, Vicodin produces feelings of relaxation and euphoria. This can lead people to abuse it. In fact, Vicodin is one of the most abused prescription drugs on the market.
Vicodin Addiction and Dependency
Not all people who use or abuse Vicodin will develop an addiction. Some people are more susceptible than others due to biological and environmental factors. For this latter group, what starts out as normal, prescribed use can evolve into Vicodin abuse, addiction (compulsive use), and physical dependency (reliance on the drug to avoid uncomfortable Vicodin withdrawal symptoms). Others intentionally abuse Vicodin, often not realizing how addictive it is.
Detox: The First Step
Most people who are chemically dependent on Vicodin will need professional treatment to quit. If you’re suffering with a Vicodin addiction, don’t let fear of withdrawals stop you from getting the help you need.
The staff at RECO Intensive provide round-the-clock care and medications (as needed) to ensure you detox comfortably and safely. Our caring team provides support and encouragement every step of the way.
