Oxycontin Addiction

Oxycontin Rehab Center in Minneapolis

If you or a loved one were prescribed Oxycontin, the brand name of the drug Oxycodone, you might have used it in a completely legal fashion originally. Indeed, this member of the opiate family is commonly—very commonly—prescribed by well-meaning doctors to relieve pain from any number of ailments when a long-term medication plan is needed. In fact, according to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), 55.2 million prescriptions for drugs in the Oxycodone family were made in 2017 alone.

Though the drug is meant to be used for the safe relief of pain, even the National Institute of Health acknowledges that drugs in the Oxycodone family can potentially be “habit-forming,” or addictive. Though its webpage for these drugs warns that they should only be taken as prescribed, and speaks of high risks of overuse if they are taken by the depressed or alcoholic, misuse of Oxycontin remains common. The 2016 National Survey on Drug Use and Health found that, in 2015, an estimated 4.3 million people abused Oxycodone products that year, which includes the drug of the brand name Oxycontin.

Oxycodone products are available in both controlled release and immediate release forms, both with varying concentrations of the drug. Extended release forms, according to the DEA, are sought after by heroin and methadone abusers, as Oxycodone in any of its concentrations helps to relieve the withdrawal effects of the aforementioned drugs. Oxycontin and pharmacologically similar drugs, therefore, render themselves dangerous to a wide variety of people. An acute overside of these drugs can kill you. If you or a loved one feel you may be experiencing addition, it is therefore vital you seek out an Oxycontin rehab center immediately.

Why Choose Health Recovery Center for Oxycontin Addiction Treatment?

Joan Mathews-Larson, the founder of Health Recovery Center, knows all too well the pain that addiction brings upon individuals and families; she lost her son to suicide after he underwent a traditional, 12-step treatment program for his alcoholism. She has henceforth sought a better, more guilt-free way to help struggling addicts, and the result is Health Recovery Center.

Our approach to Oxycontin addiction treatment is orthomolecular. In other words, instead of blaming addicts for their substance abuse disorders, we strive to help correct the underlying structural deficiencies in the brain via proper nutrition and supplementation, in addition to providing talk therapy. We don’t point fingers or blame when it comes to our Oxycontin addiction treatment, but instead seek to provide an environment that is conducive to the recovery process. We also do not believe relapse to be a part of the Oxycontin addiction treatment process; it is the result of more traditional programs failing to address the damaged and starving brain’s nutritional needs. Once you undergo treatment with our Oxycontin rehab center, we promise to bring you permanent and lasting sobriety.
