OxyContin Detox & Addiction

Getting Off Oxycontin Can Save Your Life

Prescribed by Doctors or Taken for FUN

OxyContin Addiction and OxyContin Dependence Are Widespread, and Can Have Deadly Consequences And the pain of coming off it can stop most people from trying…

If you’re having a problem with OxyContin addiction, you’re not alone.

  • OxyContin dependency and OxyContin addictions are an epidemic sweeping the country.
  • OxyContin, like heroin, oxycodone, Vicodin, methadone, hydrocodone and other opiates and opioids, is highly addictive.
  • OxyContin is essentially “legal” heroin.
  • Oxycodone, the active ingredient in OxyContin, is molecularly similar to and has similar effects to heroin in the body.
  • Percodan and Percocet also contain oxycodone.
  • OxyContin came on the market in the mid ‘90’s.
  • Misrepresentations to doctors about its addictive qualities by Purdue Pharma, its manufacturer, led to a $680 million fine and a guilty plea, but not until 2007.
  • Within just a few years of its release, more prescriptions were being written for OxyContin than all other opiate painkillers combined.
  • OxyContin addiction and abuse soon became the number one reason for admissions into many drug treatment centers.
  • Hospital emergency room visits climbed to more than 30,000.
  • The OxyContin/oxycodone DEATH toll has quadrupled.
  • OxyContin dependence means that you will experience painful OxyContin withdrawal symptoms if you stop taking OxyContin.
  • OxyContin addiction means that you will not only experience painful OxyContin withdrawal symptoms if you stop taking OxyContin, but also that you crave the “high” that you get from using OxyContin.
  • When taken for pain, OxyContin actually increases the pain in many people. This is a condition called opioid-induced hyperalgesia.
  • OxyContin addiction and/or dependence is not something to be taken lightly. Understanding OxyContin withdrawal is important.
  • A more comfortable and safe OxyContin withdrawal requires a supervised OxyContin medical detox.

  • No additional drugs to take when you leave
  • Natural supplements
  • Delicious food
  • A pleasant, quiet location on 3.25 treed acres

From one of our patients:
“The first thing I realized is that I’m not alone and this can happen to anybody. I also realized that I am a strong person for making the decision to get help…”

The Reasons Behind OxyContin Dependence and Addiction, and the Need for a Medically-Supervised Detox

  • 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 pain.

OVERDOSE — A Very Dangerous Consequence in OxyContin Addiction and Dependency

  • Overdose occurs when you take more of a drug than your body can handle.
  • OxyContin overdose can occur with long-term use, as the body builds a tolerance to the drug, or it can occur when someone has only used OxyContin for a short time or takes just one OxyContin tablet for the first time.
  • Medical examiners say many young people die from OxyContin overdose after taking only one OxyContin tablet.
  • OxyContin overdose can have serious effects:
    1. Skeletal muscle flaccidity;
    2. Cold and clammy skin;
    3. Lowered blood pressure and heart rate;
    4. Coma;
    5. Severe respiratory distress;
    6. Death.
