OxyContin Detox

Recently, the need for OxyContin detox has increased dramatically. Over the past few years, this drug has risen out of relative obscurity to become one of the most abused drugs in the country. With its powerful painkilling properties and close similarity to morphine, the mounting reports of OxyContin (timed release oxycodone hydrochloride) abuse and dependency has caused both healthcare professionals and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to reconsider how the drug is packaged and marketed.

Contrary to what you may have been told, OxyContin detox is not just for people who have abused this narcotic. An OxyContin detox program may also be necessary even if you have been using this medication as prescribed for a long period of time. The fact of the matter is, OxyContin is highly addictive no matter how it is used and attending a detox program will serve the purpose of removing the narcotic from your system. Even when used as directed, there is still a possibility that you will need to enroll in an OxyContin detox because abruptly stopping yourself from using the narcotic can lead to serious/life threatening withdrawal symptoms.

What are the reasons behind OxyContin addiction and the need for a medically-supervised OxyContin detox programs?

  • Endorphins are the body's natural painkillers and mood elevators.
  • Heroin, morphine, methadone, Vicodin, hydrocodone, oxycodone, OxyContin and other opioids and opiates artificially increase the body's production of endorphins.
  • After you've taken OxyContin for a while - supplying the body with an external source for stimulating endorphin production - the body tends to produce fewer and fewer endorphins on its own and, consequently, becomes physically dependent on the drug for the production of endorphins.
  • Many move from OxyContin dependence to addiction; they crave the feeling that OxyContin gives them.
  • Stop using OxyContin and, because there are insufficient endorphins produced by the body, the body undergoes severe and painful withdrawal symptoms.
  • Almost no one can complete an OxyContin withdrawal on their own because of the painful detox symptoms; this is why OxyContin detox is so important.

OxyContin detox often brings about numerous withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms are usually described as "the worst flu you ever had."�'�' These commonly include:

  • Runny, stuffy nose
  • Grinding nausea
  • Violent vomiting
  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Profuse sweating
  • Hot and cold flashes
  • Dilated pupils
  • Uncontrollable coughing
  • Nervousness and severe agitation
  • Insomnia
  • Rapid and/or irregular heartbeat
  • Frequent diarrhea
  • Severe muscle cramps
  • Creepy goose bumps

What is rapid OxyContin detox? It is a form of alternative treatment and is a viable alternative for certain addicts. Rapid detoxification and rapid opiate detox can be beneficial if you are suffering from an addiction to heroin, prescription painkillers, OxyContin, Methadone, Suboxone, Vicodin, Darvocet, Percocet, Hydrocodone or any other opioid.

However, rapid OxyContin detox only treats physical aspects of opiate drug addiction, not the psychological aspects. After successful rapid detox which stops physical addiction and withdrawal, you will need long term professional psychological addiction rehab or risk relapse.
