Oxycodone Home Detox

Oxycodone is a synthetic opiate or opioid. It is a narcotic pain medication typically known as Percocet, Roxicet, Vicodin, and Lortabs. An Oxycodone Home Detox may be an option for clients looking to get off this opiate.

The use of Oxycodone, also known as Oxy’s, Perc’s, and Roxies often starts out as the legitimate use of a medical prescription for pain control. Or it may start out with the misuse of another persons prescribed medication. Unfortunately, use can easily lead to dependence and addiction. We have treated people from the ages of 21 to 55 years old for dependence. A supervised home detox can be managed in a safe and effective manner.

Oxycodone Home Detox: Dependence and Addiction

Dependence on Oxycodone results from continued use of the drug at prescribed levels. The body gets used to the drug and requires its continued use or withdrawal symptoms will occur.

Addiction to Oxycodone is the illicit or unprescribed use of this drug combined with physical dependence on the drug. Addiction is similar to dependence but there is the added component of taking more than is prescribed or engaging in negative behaviors to access its use. Whether one is dependent or addicted to Oxycodone, the result is often a need for a supervised medical detoxification, or a Bupprenorphine Induction.

An added problem associated with the misuse or abuse of Oxycodone is often the ingestion of acetaminophen at higher than recommended dosage levels. This can have negative consequences on kidney function.
