Roxicet Addiction Treatment

Roxicet Addiction Treatment

Roxicet (Roxy) is a prescribed opiate-based painkiller combined with the properties of oxycodone and acetaminophen for moderate to severe pain. Roxicet carries a high possibility of addiction given that it is derived from opium, the same derivative found in its street cousin, heroin. Individuals who take or abuse Roxicet are also likely to take oxycodone, percocet, vicodin, codeine, morphine or any other opiate-based painkiller.
Prescription drug opiates like Roxicet are among the most widely abused prescribed medications on the market. Individuals may initially receive a prescription following surgery or for injury only to discover they enjoy the euphoric effects. Refilling prescriptions early, visiting multiple doctors for prescriptions (doctor shopping), faking symptoms in order to receive more prescriptions or stealing from others’ medicine cabinets are a few examples of the behavior exhibited by someone who has become addicted to prescription drug painkillers.
Individuals using Roxicet have likened its strength to that of six Percocets. While it comes in pill form, it may also be crushed and snorted to enhance its euphoric properties. The abuse of prescription drug painkillers has become a growing problem. The most recent trend has been seen among teenagers and young adults holding “pharming” parties, where individuals contribute prescription drugs such as opiate based painkillers, benzodiazepines (valium, Librium) and uppers (Adderall) to a community bowl for distribution.
SouthCoast Recovery has become widely recognized for its prescription drug treatment program. Withdrawal from opiate-based painkillers like Roxicet can deter many people from quitting. Chills, cold sweats, body aches, nausea, depression and flu-like symptoms accompany withdrawal from opiates. The first step in overcoming opiate addiction is to physically detox the body. SouthCoast Recovery offers state-licensed detox that is medically supervised, safe and comfortable. Traditional, medical detox offers a mild form of prescription medication to ease the body off opiates as comfortably as possible. SouthCoast Recovery is also one of only three drug rehab centers in the nation to offer NeuroTransmitter Restoration therapy or NTR. NTR bathes the brain in a naturally-occurring amino acid solution that jump starts the cell repair process, restoring mental clarity in days rather than weeks or months.
Following detox, a clinical evaluation takes into account past history of drug and alcohol abuse, health issues, family dynamics and any underlying issues that may contribute to prescription drug abuse. A personalized treatment plan is then designed, combining the finest clinical care with advanced holistic therapies of acupuncture, massage and meditation to achieve overall well-being of mind, body and spirit. Our personal attention to your care ensures a safe, comfortable withdrawal from opiates with continued support that will have you well on the road to recovery.
