Vicodin is one of the most popular painkillers in our country. While it is effective for its medical purposes, it is also one of the most popularly abused prescription drugs. The Lakehouse Recovery Center approaches Vicodin addiction treatment with a multi-faceted program.
This clinical approach gives proper attention to both medical and therapeutic needs in a treatment plan designed specifically for you.
Understanding Vicodin Addiction
Vicodin is a combination of acetaminophen (commonly known as Tylenol) and hydrocodone, which is a synthetic form of codeine. It’s a narcotic that is prescribed by doctors to manage pain, such as arthritis, after surgery, accidents, dental procedures, and even sports injuries.
Vicodin is extremely effective when used properly. Unfortunately, consuming it in higher doses or more frequently than prescribed can easily lead to addiction to Vicodin or other painkillers.
Although steps have been taken to monitor the usage of this drug between doctors, pharmacies, and individuals, it can be readily available on the streets, meaning there is usually a way to gain access to it.
It is not always easy to first notice your dependence to the Vicodin. One of the first signs, however, is the inability to stop using it.
It affects your physiological, behavioral, and cognitive ability – allowing you to view the drug as necessary for you to function. It controls an individual through an incessant need to obtain and use the drug. In other words: dependence.
When you truly believe you need prescription drugs to treat the condition doctors prescribed it for, seeing that there is an addiction is difficult.
If you can answer ‘yes’ to any of the following, you may need to seek Vicodin addiction treatment:
- Do you run out of pills before your prescription can be refilled?
- Have you bought Vicodin on the street?
- Does your doctor refuse to write a new prescription for it?
- Do you experience muscle pain, night sweats, insomnia, and so forth when you are out of Vicodin?
