If you are addicted to your Vicodin prescription, you’re not alone. The drug is one of many commonly prescribed for pain management and the opioid-based medication is highly addictive, even when taken exactly as the doctor ordered. According to the research report “Prescription Drugs: Abuse and Addiction” distributed by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, opiates, which treat pain, are one of three types of prescription drugs most commonly abused; central nervous system (CNS) depressants, which treat anxiety and sleep disorders and stimulants, which treat obesity, narcolepsy and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), are the other two.
At Orchid Recovery Center, we provide a comprehensive Vicodin detox and treatment for women who are ready to move from a life of dependence to a life of abstinence.
Types of Vicodin Detox Programs Available
It’s never advisable to attempt a Vicodin detox on your own, but with all the Vicodin detox programs available it shouldn’t be difficult to find one to guide you through the process. For example, an inpatient detox of short duration, 3 days to a week long, is one choice. They assist you through the most difficult symptoms and send you home once they have passed. Some provide medical assistance to ease the painful withdrawal symptoms; others don’t. Others offer an outpatient service where you come in daily for medication that allows you to keep the withdrawal symptoms at bay while immediately stopping your Vicodin prescription. Other outpatient programs also allow you to stop taking Vicodin but replace it with another prescription drug that is less overwhelming mentally but just as addictive physically.
At Orchid Recovery Center, we provide an inpatient medical detox that lasts as long as you need. Even after you have made it through the roughest parts of the Vicodin detox, you will remain with us and continue the long process of flushing the toxins and residuals of drug use out of your system while you begin Vicodin addiction treatment that addresses your emotional and spiritual wounds.
The Importance of Vicodin Detox
Vicodin detox, if it is to be successful, needs more than just a few days’ attention. Though the harshest symptoms will pass within a week, you won’t feel 100 percent for another couple of weeks. Even after that, you will still carry some leftover toxins in your muscle tissues. A comprehensive detox like the one at Orchid Recovery Center will help you continue to detox as you turn your attention to other aspects of recovery. Through gentle exercises and body work, our clinical team helps you to release the residual poisons and then follow up with nutritious, organic meals. Without this kind of attention to detail, it’s doubtful than any detox will be enough to sustain you through a lengthy abstinence.
How To Know if You Need a Vicodin Detox
If you feel physically ill when you miss a dose of Vicodin or try to stop taking your prescription, then you are dependent upon the drug and the only way to effectively treat it is with a Vicodin detox. It’s that simple. The withdrawal symptoms tell you that your body is already beginning to detox the Vicodin out of your system. If are ready to make a change in your life and end your Vicodin addiction once and for all, the best way to do it is to find professional drug detox services like those available at Orchid Recovery Center in Palm Springs, Florida.
