OxyContin / Oxycodone Facts

A few facts about OxyContin:

  • A Schedule II drug
  • Treats only the symptoms and, like an anesthetic, masks the pain but never addresses the cause so it continues to get worse
  • Intended to be longer release oxycodone
  • OxyContin’s active ingredient is oxycodone
  • Oxycodone is pharmaceutical grade heroin—legal heroin
  • Oxycodone is interchangeable with heroin
  • Made by Purdue Pharma — a company that pled guilty to a felony for lying about the addictive affects of OxyContin
  • The gateway drug to heroin — many start on OxyContin and switch to heroin
  • Creates overdoses and death even if taken as prescribed
  • Creates dependence (you get sick if you stop taking it) in a very short time
  • Is being recognized by many doctors as not appropriate for many types of pain treatment
  • Creates opioid-induced hyperalgesia (makes the pain worse instead of reducing it)

oxycontin detox

Most people who have become dependent on or addicted to OxyContin experience up to a month of very uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms if they try to stop taking it. Most who attempt to withdraw from OxyContin don’t complete their detox but resume taking the drug. This is why many people have decided to come to Florida and detox at Novus Medical Detox Center. Novus has developed a protocol for OxyContin detox that allows people to complete their detox and continue with their lives — most say that they experienced few unpleasant withdrawal symptoms.

For people who have become dependent on Oxycontin or oxycodone, they are not taking the drug to feel a certain way, but only because if they stop they will become ill. They don’t really need to go to rehab but can just resume their lives — drug-free.

For people who have become addicted, they take OxyContin because the oxycodone makes them feel a certain way and seems to be solving a problem they have, and they normally need to go to rehab. At the rehab, the OxyContin user will learn other ways to handle problems and be able to resume their lives drug-free.
