OxyContin Addiction Can be Accidental

If you fear that you, or a loved one, might be addicted to OxyContin, it’s important not to judge. It’s entirely possible that you became addicted to OxyContin without ever setting out to abuse it. Perhaps all you did was simply follow the doctor’s instructions.

Say your doctor prescribes a 20 milligram dose of OxyContin to treat pain. It’s easy to build up a tolerance to opiates, and after a while, this no longer dulls the pain. So your doctor ups this to 40 milligrams. Before you realize it, you are caught in the grips of an OxyContin addiction.

Beware: a lethal overdose of OxyContin can occur, especially when combined with benzodiazepines or alcohol.

The first step is diagnosis.

Treatment For OxyContin Addiction

As with any type of addiction treatment, there is not a one-size-fits-all solution. In many cases, intervention might be needed. It’s imperative that you determine the treatments that are appropriate for your needs. Some specific OxyContin recovery treatments include:

Stage 1: Detox

Depending on your degree of addiction, medically supervised detoxification may be needed in order to withdraw from alcohol safely and comfortably. Which option is best for you depends on how much alcohol you’ve been drinking, how long you’ve had a problem with alcohol, and any other health issues that you may have.

Stage 2: Rehab

Attaining sobriety, and giving recovering addicts the skills needed to remain sober, often involves medication and counseling. This treatment step can be done inpatient or outpatient. Both are equally effective.

Stage 3: Maintenance

The success of this step requires that the alcohol addict be self-motivated. This requires support, and often includes attending 12-step support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous and finding a sponsor.

Be Aware of The Pink Cloud

There is often a happy phase that comes after OxyContin recovery. You feel all is right with the world and life can never be difficult again. This is called the pink cloud phase. This is usually followed by a massive crash once you realize that staying addiction-free is a day-to-day process. This is when you need your circle of support more than ever. Lean on the friends and family who will keep you from being tempted into relapse. It’s okay to ask for moral support.
