How to identify OxyContin Addiction

The side effects of OxyContin abuse are similar to those that individuals addicted to heroin experience. The physical signs of an OxyContin addiction are more vivid and visible to the eye, however paying close attention to the psychological symptoms can be important as well. Behavioral changes in someone close to you can be a clear sign that OxyContin detox is needed.

Although evidence of a psychological dependence to OxyContin can remain for a long time, proper oversight and timely interference can help in the overcoming of addiction and continuing to live a life free from OxyContin.

BeWell Recovery Centers OxyContin Detox Program

At BeWell Recovery Centers we offer our patients the best medically supervised OxyContin detox and rehabilitation programs in the L.A. area and throughout the country. We start our treatment program by getting to know you and the nature of your OxyContin addiction, after which our medical team will develop an individual program specifically for your case. Treatment at BeWell Recovery Centers for OxyContin abuse begins with detoxification where we help manage the often unpleasant withdrawal symptoms and treat your addiction without the risk of relapses.

OxyContin being one of the strongest opiate prescription drugs, is supremely addictive. And once the OxyContin blood levels drop below expected, individuals starting the detox process can start to experience withdrawal symptoms. Depending on the duration and dosage, the withdrawal and symptom timeline for OxyContin detox may vary from one addict to another.

OxyContin Withdrawal Symptoms

Individuals going through detoxification may suffer from some uncomfortable and painful physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms.
OxyContin withdrawal symptoms can include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Accelerated breathing
  • Fast heart beat
  • Joint pain and aches
  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea/vomiting
  • Restlessness
  • Runny nose
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Watering eyes
  • Yawning

Some of the side effects those in OxyContin detox experience include depression and anxiety, which are strongly related to the nature of the medication. If you or someone you love is intending to overcome an OxyContin Addiction it is important to refer to professionals who can help you through the process. Incorrect OxyContin detox can lead to fatal consequences, therefore having a medically supervised and experienced team like the one here at BeWell Recovery Centers can be essential to building lasting recovery.

OxyContin Withdrawal Timeline

As mentioned above, the withdrawal process for OxyContin and duration depends on the individual in treatment, however some general patterns are visible and often present themselves. Withdrawal symptoms may begin as early as the first eight hours after the last intake and last up to three days.

Up to 8 Hours

Within as little as 8 hours after your last dose, you may feel:

  • Intense drug cravings.
  • Mild dysphoria.
  • Mood changes ranging from anxiety and fear of withdrawal to depression.

8 to 24 Hours

Within 8 to 24 hours after your last OxyContin dose, patients begin to experience symptoms such as:

  • Stomach cramps.
  • Runny nose, watery eyes, sweating.
  • Restlessness, yawning, insomnia.

Up to 3 Days

After 24 hours of your last dose, withdrawal symptoms may progress to include:

  • Diarrhea.
  • Fever, chills.
  • Muscle spasms, joint pain, tremors.
  • Nausea, vomiting.
  • Elevated heart rate, elevated blood pressure.

During Medical Detox at BeWell Recovery Centers, we offer a “replacement” medication, such as Suboxone to help our patients in the battle against OxyContin addiction. Medications like Suboxone are not as addictive and also have an antidepressant effect. Some other non-addictive medications may also be applied during detoxification to combat uncomfortable OxyContin withdrawal symptoms such as insomnia, appetite disorders, and stress.

OxyContin Treatment and Aftercare

Graduates of the BeWell Recovery Centers detox program move on to our comprehensive, supervised individual rehab program to continue their recovery. Our OxyContin rehab program features personalized therapy sessions, tasks, and treatments designed to help patients heal and achieve long-term recovery. We are a trauma-focused recovery program and emphasize the importance of handling the various triggers that patients with a history of OxyContin abuse will face when they leave treatment. Recovery doesn’t end once patients complete from rehab. In fact, people who attend a support program after rehab are more likely to stay sober and avoid relapse. We offer an ongoing after-rehab program that includes meetings with therapists and support groups to all alumni who have graduated from the BeWell Recovery Centers program. Family members and friends are also encouraged to participate in sessions when possible to better create an environment of recovery for patients returning home. At BeWell Recovery Centers, we work hard to help our patients transform their lives and find a sense of inner peace and contentment without the use of harmful substances like OxyContin.
