OxyContin is one of the most commonly abused prescription opioids. It is commonly used in the treatment of moderate to severe pain and mirrors the same effects of heroin. One of the primary reasons for the recent uptick in heroin addiction is the crackdown on prescription painkiller trafficking in the United States. Patients who developed a tolerance to OxyContin suddenly found themselves without means or access to get the drugs on the street or from their doctor, and thus, were replaced by $5 baggies of heroin. OxyContin withdrawal occurs when patients start to develop tolerance of the drug and is manifested through a variety of moderate to severe physical and psychological symptoms. Recovery Unplugged Texas offers compassionate, effective and medically supervised OxyContin withdrawal treat in Austin. Call us today at (855) 384-6340 to start the healing process. You don’t have to do this alone.
OxyContin is an extremely powerful drug that can often render patients tolerant in a very short time. Withdrawal is one of the clearest indicators of dependency and should be treated by a doctor or nurse who is trained in symptoms. While each patient’s OxyContin withdrawal symptoms will vary according to the scope and severity of their abuse, some of the more common symptoms include changes in mood, headaches, moderate to severe joint and muscle pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, hallucinations, sweating, flu-like symptoms, shaking and tremors, depression, anxiety, suicidal ideations and so much more. The longer OxyContin abuse persists, the more difficult withdrawal is likely to be. The drug creates serious and profound changes in biochemistry and causes patients to crave the drug beyond anything else in their lives. If you or a loved one are experiencing these or any other symptoms, speak to your prescribing physician or seek treatment right away.
People become dependent on OxyContin for a variety of reasons. Many start taking the drug out of sheer curiosity and wind up getting more than they bargain for; others wind up misusing their legitimate supply and quickly developing tolerance. One of the primary drivers of the prescription painkiller epidemic is the assumption by many users that these drugs are somehow less harmful than illicit drugs like heroin. They think that since their legal, they must be safe. The reality is that these drugs represent a serious and enduring threat that can have a serious impact on users’ overall health and quality of life.
Treatment of OxyContin withdrawal requires medical detox and management to help patients get through their symptoms. Recovery Unplugged Texas is one of the few OxyContin withdrawal treatment centers in Austin that offers addiction-trained doctors and nurses to help alleviate symptoms and intervene in the event of a medical emergency. Patients often think they can overcome OxyContin withdrawal on their own and wind up relapsing as a result. Don’t get caught up in this self-defeating cycle. Call us today to start overcoming your withdrawal symptoms. We very much look forward to helping you.
