Get Help for Vicodin Addiction

If you believe you have an addiction to Vicodin or other prescription pain drugs, now is the time to get help.  The first step is admitting you have a problem.  The next step is to research addiction treatment options and choose a program that will help you rebuild your life and have a lasting recovery, not only from pain medication addiction, but from pain itself.

Some options are:

Outpatient treatment – This is best for people who will not have easy access to prescription drugs

Residential treatment – This is best for people who feel they will have trouble staying away from their drug of choice

Many people will choose a secluded environment for their addiction treatment. This allows them to rest and recover in a safe, private environment.

A medically supervised detox is critical for your health and well-being. Withdrawal from opiates such as Vicodin can be very risky if done alone. Most drug rehabs will include medically supervised detox as part of the program and may use replacement therapy such as Suboxone to ease the symptoms of withdrawal.

The Pain of Addiction

Vicodin addiction often starts innocently enough. Most people start taking Vicodin or other pain medications after surgery or an injury. But then they can’t stop. They need more to get the same pain relief. They start doctor shopping to get more pills. And the cycle continues until it takes over their lives.
