Oxycodone Addiction Rehab

Oxycodone interacts with the same brain receptors as heroin. Oxycodone is an opioid painkiller that has destroyed lives when abused and recovery-sensitive treatment is delayed or never obtained. Oxycodone dependency is extremely difficult to overcome without recovery-sensitive assistance. Oxycodone detoxification without a comprehensive recovery-sensitive treatment program is a waste of time and money.

What is Oxycodone?

Oxycodone is a highly addictive opioid. This substance is often prescribed to patients with severe and/or chronic pain. Oxycodone use can turn into addiction quickly, even when used as prescribed.

Be weary of doctors that prescribe oxycodone when they have in adequate or no education, training and experience in oxycodone addiction and rehabilitation. Otherwise an apparently so called “therapeutic” prescription of oxycodone has turned into countless instances of oxycodone addiction right under the nose of prescribing physicians across the country for over a decade.

Once addicted to oxycodone, professional recovery-sensitive treatment services are needed in order to reclaim your life and repair the neuropsychiatric, spiritual, physical and social damage incurred by oxycodone dependence.

Underlying Symptoms of Oxycodone Dependence

Oxycodone dependence usually does not usually occur without a prompt such as preexisting:

Other prompts include:

  1. Genetics: Oxycodone addiction does not specifically run in families, although it infrequently has.
    • A genetic and familial predisposition does in fact exist for solving emotional and physical pain with substances outside the body rather than channeling internal emotional and physical pain relieving electro-biochemicals
    • Emotional and physical pain are inseparable and emotional pain tents to be much more chronically tortuous than physical pain
    • A genetic of familial predisposition to any drug addiction or behavioral addiction increases one’s risk to developing oxycodone dependence
  2. Environmental: Oxycodone availability via street vendors, friends, relatives or an abundance of prescribers untrained and inexperienced in addictions regularly contribute to oxycodone dependence, as do:
    • Family stressors
    • Occupational stressors
    • Financial stressors
    • Legal stressors
  3. Neuropsychiatric: We are not being puppeteer-ed by oxycodone dependence, instead we choose:
    • To focus on what we don’t have instead of being grateful and thankful for what we have
    • We permit angry, discontented people to disrupt our serenity
    • We choose to obsessively worry about tomorrow four hours while lying in bed instead of saying the acceptance prayer and getting a better night’s sleep in preparation for tomorrow’s usual and customary war games

By the way, it is: When I am disturbed, it is because I find some person, place, thing or situation – some fact of my life – unacceptable to me and I can find no serenity until I accept that person, place, thing or situation as being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment.
We call this unable to live on life’s terms, or unable to accept life on life’s terms.

Risk Factors for Oxycodone Dependence

Risk factors for developing oxycodone dependence include:

  • Filling a legal prescription for oxycodone
  • Prior substance abuse including overeating oxidized foods, nicotine abuse and alcohol abuse
  • Poverty
  • History of mental illness
  • History of physical trauma
  • History of emotional trauma
  • Family history of substance abuse
  • Family history of moodiness or compulsive worry, anger or hate
  • Early exposure to substance abuse
