Getting Off Vicodin Can Save Your Life

At Novus we understand how the fear of the pain of withdrawal can stop you from taking the first step. We understand you are at your wits end and just want your life back.

The numbers of Vicodin dependent and Vicodin addicted people are growing rapidly and are having deadly consequences.

And the pain of coming off it can stop most people from trying...

Are you having a problem with Vicodin addiction or Vicodin dependency and want help?

  • Vicodin dependency and Vicodin addictions are reaching epidemic proportions.
  • Like OxyContin, oxycodone, Norco, Lortab, Lorcet, heroin, hydrocodone, methadone and other opiates and opioids, Vicodin is highly addictive.
  • Vicodin, like Norco, Lortab and Lorcet, contains acetaminophen (the painkiller found in Tylenol) and the opioid painkiller hydrocodone..
  • Acetaminophen has been linked to liver damage.
  • In July of 2009, an FDA panel recommended that Vicodin be removed from the market because of its danger to the public.
  • Acetaminophen overdoses alone result in at least 56,000 emergency room visits, 26,000 hospitalizations and 458 deaths each year.
  • Vicodin, Lorcet, Lortab, Norco and other generic combinations of hydrocodone and acetaminophen were prescribed over 100 million times last year.
  • Vicodin can adversely affect the health of innocent babies if you continue taking Vicodin while pregnant.
  • Vicodin dependence means that you will experience painful Vicodin withdrawal symptoms if you stop taking Vicodin.
  • Vicodin addiction means that you will not only experience painful Vicodin withdrawal symptoms if you stop taking Vicodin, but also that you crave the “high” that you get from using Vicodin.
  • Vicodin addiction or Vicodin dependence is not something to be taken lightly. Understanding why Vicodin withdrawal is so difficult is important.
  • A more comfortable and safe Vicodin withdrawal from a Vicodin addiction or Vicodin dependence requires a supervised Vicodin medical detox.
  • When taken for pain, the opioid hydrocodone in Vicodin actually increases the pain in many people. This is a condition called opioid-induced hyperalgesia.

From One of Our Patients: “My treatment at Novus was as pleasant as detox could be thanks to the methods used and a knowledgeable, compassionate staff.”

At Novus We Know:

  • Everyone’s metabolism and reaction to a drug is different.
  • Everyone’s health is different when they start their detox.
  • To assure a more safe and more comfortable withdrawal from Vicodin addiction or Vicodin dependence, a medical detox program must be individually designed for you – no one-size-fits-all.
  • Once your medical detox program is determined, then it takes careful and competent staff to ensure that it is correctly applied to you.
  • Leave Novus free of Vicodin dependence or Vicodin addiction and not on other new drugs.

More words from a patient: “Thank you for giving me not only my life back, my sanity, and my strength, but my soul as well….”

Vicodin Dependence and Addiction Causes and the Need for a Medical Vicodin Detox

  • The body’s natural painkillers and mood elevators are called endorphins.
  • The body’s production of endorphins is increased by OxyContin, oxycodone, heroin, hydrocodone, morphine, methadone, Norco, Lortab, Percocet, Vicodin and other opioids and opiates.
  • Recognizing another source for stimulating endorphin production, the body slows its own production of endorphins and relies more and more on Vicodin or other opioids.
  • If you now suddenly stop using Vicodin, there will not be enough normal endorphin production and you will go into painful withdrawal.
  • Almost no one who is dependent on Vicodin or has a Vicodin addiction can complete an Vicodin withdrawal on their own because of the pain.

Overdose — A Very Dangerous Consequence in Vicodin Addiction and Vicodin Dependency

Overdose occurs when you take more of a drug than your body can handle.

  • Vicodin overdose can be caused by hydrocodone, the opioid in Vicodin, or acetaminophen.
  • Hydrocodone overdose can have serious consequences:
    • Lowered blood pressure and heart rate
    • Cold and clammy skin
    • Skeletal muscle flaccidity
    • Coma
    • Severe respiratory distress
    • Circulatory problems
    • Cardiac arrest
    • Death
  • Acetaminophen overdose can have serious consequences:
    • Fatal hepatic (liver) necrosis (death of tissue or cells);
    • Renal tubular necrosis (death of tissues or cells in and around the liver);
    • Hypoglycemic coma (low blood sugar-induced coma);
    • Thrombocytopenia (condition caused by inability of the body to control bleeding);
    • If not promptly treated, all of the above conditions can lead to death.


We develop an individualized medical detox program specifically for each of our patients, which means no recovery will look the same. Our delicious food, nutritional IVs and supplements, and specialized detox protocols are all designed to quicken the healing process. We understand that various addictions present a number of issues for the human body, so we create our IVs and diets to fit the needs of specific withdrawal symptoms.

Our process is all about you, which is why we have private and shared rooms available for our residents. Each room is outfitted with a TV, telephone, and access to the internet. We also provide educational classes that will show you how the drug or alcohol of your choice affects your body. We believe that to effectively fight off your withdrawal symptoms, it is important to know what you are fighting against and what to be prepared for.
