Treatment For Oxycontin In California

OxyContin, also called Oxy, is the brand name of oxycodone, a prescription painkiller used to treat moderate to severe pain. However, the drug is also highly addictive, causing people both with and without a prescription, to abuse it. Sold in a pill form, OxyContin is often crushed and snorted or injected by addicts.

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), nearly 20,000 individuals died from prescription opioid pain relievers in 2014, which accounts for nearly half of all drug overdose fatalities in the United States. After Viagra, OxyContin is the highest-selling pharmaceutical drug.

What distinguishes OxyContin from other prescription drugs is its availability. Even with prices per pill ranging between $40 and $80, there is still a large supply of the drug on the streets for those who can afford it.

Symptoms of Oxy addiction

The symptoms of oxy addiction can be categorized into two categories that include physical and behavioral. Some of the common physical symptoms that are exhibited by an individual addicted to oxy are mentioned below:

  • Drowsiness or nodding off
  • Euphoria
  • Lightheaded
  • Itchy skin
  • Nausea, vomiting
  • Constipation
  • Low blood pressure
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Profuse sweating

Individuals addicted to Oxy also display a number of behavioral symptoms. For instance, they tend to steal, lie, lose contact with friends and family, and have difficulty upholding their social, financial and professional responsibilities.

Treatment for Oxy addiction

Sovereign Health offers an effective OxyContin addiction treatment program. First, we conduct a rigorous physical and mental assessment of each patient during the intake process. Based on the results of this assessment, our clinicians create a treatment plan tailored to the specific needs of the patient. It is also ensured that all the underlying conditions, such as mental health issues, that fuel the user’s addiction are also uncovered during the assessment.

Once we establish an accurate picture of the patient’s mental and physical health, we make the concerned person undergo a detoxification treatment. All the treatment offered in Sovereign Health are a part of a well-planned detox program.
