When prescribed for the purposes of alleviating severe pain, OxyContin can provide sufferers of pain with the relief they need to function in their daily lives. Conversely, if a person consumes this powerful pain reliever with the goal of achieving a high, the resulting effects can be quite detrimental to the individual’s wellbeing.
Known for its highly addictive properties, OxyContin can cause those who abuse it to become trapped in a vicious cycle of substance abuse that can seem all but impossible to escape. Soon, a person’s job, family, and livelihood can be affected, and the health concerns that can emerge can render an individual vulnerable to experiencing life-threatening consequences. Additionally, when these effects occur coupled with the need to consume more of this medication in order to achieve the desired high, seeking treatment to defeat a chemical dependency concern of this kind can be a person’s best and only option.

Our center, which has a long history of helping men and women defeat addictions to substances like OxyContin, offers world class care in an atmosphere that is peaceful and extremely conducive to healing.

Let the extraordinary, compassionate staff at Duffy’s help you today.
Helping a Loved One or Family Member Get Treatment
If you have a loved one who is struggling with an addiction to OxyContin, then you understand what it is like to watch someone grapple with the compulsion to abuse this prescription painkiller. You, as a concerned friend or family member, may be unsure as to what you can do to help this individual, and you may even feel powerless against your loved one’s need to continue abusing this medication.
However, as someone close to a person who is abusing OxyContin, you can take action. Consider the following when trying to help someone get treatment for an OxyContin addiction:
- Research the signs of abuse, intoxication, and overdose if your loved one is addicted to OxyContin. By learning this information, you can be of assistance to the person you care about should he or she experience effects that warrant emergency medical attention.
- Learn about the various options for care that exist that could help your loved one overcome this chemical dependency concern. Create a list of potential treatment centers to eventually present to your loved one.
- Broach a conversation about your loved one’s addiction with him or her. Make sure that you execute this talk with compassion and no judgement. Express your concern, encourage your loved one to seek treatment, and convey your intentions for how you plan on supporting him or her.
- Offer to help your loved one as he or she plans to enter treatment once he or she has agreed to go to treatment.
- Be sure to take care of yourself. By practicing good self-care while helping your loved one, you will be able to offer the best assistance possible.
Finally, once your loved one has begun treatment, it is a good idea to remain an active, positive presence in his or her life. If family therapy sessions or services for loved ones are offered, it would be wise to attend and participate in those activities. In doing so, you are demonstrating that you are there for the person you care about.
Why Consider Treatment at Duffy’s Napa Valley Rehab
As with other opioid addictions, an addiction to OxyContin can be extremely difficult to overcome on one’s own. For this reason it is best to seek treatment at a reputable treatment center that has a proven track record of helping others who have endured similar challenges. Failing to seek care for this type of addiction can, unfortunately, mean that a person will experience a number of adversities as a result. Conflict with loved ones is likely to transpire, job loss due to poor performance at work is probable, and financial difficulties can occur if the individual is unable to maintain steady employment. Additionally, the health concerns that could happen have the potential to be life-threatening. Vital organ damage, the ever-present risk of overdose, and the worsening of the addiction in general all contribute to the fact that an OxyContin addiction can be lethal. However, should a person seek and receive treatment, these risks and the other consequences associated with abusing OxyContin can be minimized or avoided all together.
