from a Pain Reliever?

Why Is Percocet Easy to Abuse?

Play Video

Opiate drugs like Percocet become less effective over time. Your body develops a tolerance for the drug and needs more and more of it to achieve the same level of pain relief or “high.” This tolerance makes Percocet and similar drugs good candidates for abuse, even by people who start off taking it as prescribed. Here are some questions you can ask yourself to determine whether you have a Percocet addiction:

Am I taking taking higher or more frequent doses than my doctor prescribed?
Am I taking Percocet in a way that was not prescribed by my doctor? For example, rather than swallowing a tablet, am I snorting or injecting the medication?
Am I shopping for additional doctors to prescribe Percocet so that I can escape my doctor’s supervision?

The first step is diagnosis.

We invite you to take our test –and determine whether or not you’ve got an issue. If you do, read on, and consider contacting us to guide you through steering your life back to normal.

Treatment For Percocet Addiction

Withdrawal from Percocet can be challenging. You might feel like you want to sleep all the time. You might get dizzy, feel muscular pain or weakness, and even get panic attacks. You’ll be relieved to know that professional inpatient or outpatient rehab options can help you manage your sober recovery.

Stage 1: Detox

Detox is the first step in substance abuse treatment for a Percocet addiction. The medical staff in a Percocet detox center can take you or a loved off of the drug slowly. You can receive medications like methadone or buprenorphine to help wean you from your opiate dependence. These substances work to relieve cravings and withdrawal symptoms–and get you on the path to sober recovery.

Stage 2: Rehab

Rehab therapy options include inpatient and outpatient behavioral modification programs. Inpatient residential treatment for 30, 60, or 90 days can result in long-term success. Outpatient rehab that includes mental health therapy and substance abuse treatment can also be helpful in enabling you to better understand the nature of your addiction.

Stage 3: Maintenance

Once you have given up your dependence on Percocet, an appropriate after-care program that may include a sober living environment, a regular check-in and follow-up counseling and/or a community 12-step program, will help ensure that you don’t relapse.
