Once an individual becomes addicted to Oxycodone, the ability to stop using the drug is not only difficult, sometimes it may feel impossible. Oxycodone addiction treatment can help an addict to find a way to give up the Oxycodone use, overcome the physical need that they feel to use the drug and learn how to say no. There are often many withdrawal symptoms that become present when an addict stops taking Oxycodone and in most cases, it’s these very same symptoms that make the addict turn back to the drug.
Oxycodone addiction treatment takes a number of different methods in order to provide the patient with the best and most effective care. The first step of the Oxycodone addiction treatment process is to help the patient to safely detoxify from the drug. This step typically takes anywhere from about 7-14 days depending on the severity of the addiction and various other factors pertaining to the individual health of the patient. During opiate detox, the individual will undergo a series of withdrawal symptoms that can be difficult for the addict to handle both mentally and physically. This is just a standard part of the Oxycodone addiction treatment process that every recovering addict must endure.
Following Oxycodone detox, the individual will begin counseling to help them with the many psychological elements of their addiction. Counseling is provided in two primary formats to meet the needs of each patient; individual counseling that takes place one-on-one with a therapist and group counseling which takes place in a group setting and is moderated by a therapist. The role of counseling in Oxycodone addiction treatment is to help the patient cope with psychological trauma, get the negative feelings off of their chest and learn how to listen to others and reintegrate into society. This is the foundation of Oxycodone addiction treatment and makes up the majority of the recovery process.
Oxycodone addiction treatment doesn’t end when the inpatient or outpatient treatment program is over in 90 days or 6 months or however long the program is set for. The treatment continues on through aftercare programs that provide addition support, guidance and care as needed to help the patient maintain their recovery, continue to make every effort to stay sober and to live free from drugs. Many after-care programs are available and there are also many support groups that can help even after the initial phases of Oxycodone addiction treatment have been completed.
