The importance of detox for OxyContin addiction
While OxyContin can be an immense help to those who are suffering from pain, this prescription painkiller is also an enticing substance of abuse for individuals who are hoping to achieve a mind- and/or mood-altering high.
One of the risks involved when abusing OxyContin is the potential for developing an addiction. The longer than an individual abuses this medication, the more likely that he or she will become to develop a tolerance to this substance. Tolerance, as it grows, eventually causes a person’s body to adapt to the presence of it and require more OxyContin on a more frequent basis in order to function properly. As time presses on, chemical dependency forms and the individual is no longer able to go without the use of this medication.
An addiction to OxyContin can be especially difficult to overcome alone. Once an individual has become chemically dependent upon this painkiller, that person is going to endure a series of physical and psychological symptoms if he or she stops using this medication. For many, resuming use of OxyContin is the quickest way to alleviate these symptoms, which are part of the process of withdrawal. For these reasons and more, it is crucial for an individual to seek and receive treatment from professionals who are qualified to treat chemical dependency concerns.
Among the various options for care that exist, those that include detoxification services, or detox, are the types of treatment that have helped countless men and women win the war against OxyContin addiction. Given this fact, it is beneficial to participate in proven effective addiction treatment that supplies detox at the start of one’s recovery journey.

Receiving detox before participating in other therapeutic interventions when working to overcome an addiction to OxyContin can springboard a person towards the recovered life that he or she is seeking. Failing to seek this type of care can, unfortunately, render a person vulnerable to remaining trapped in the vicious cycle of substance abuse. Because withdrawal sets in after an individual no longer has OxyContin in his or her system, the likelihood of resuming use of this substance is high when trying to refrain from continued abuse is done without the supervision and assistance of professionals.
Conversely, by receiving detox, the following are more likely to occur and improve upon an individual’s odds of defeating an OxyContin addiction:
- Cravings and the other psychological symptoms of withdrawal are alleviated, which helps men and women achieve a clearness of mind that will allow them to effectively participate in treatment.
- The physical discomfort associated with withdrawal is also alleviated, as those in detox can receive certain medications that are able to provide relief from any pain or distress present.
- The detriments that come along with ongoing OxyContin abuse are diminished as an individual receiving detox is no longer able to abuse this medication due to having no access to this painkiller.
- Men and women in detox benefit from the ongoing supervision, support, and guidance of qualified professionals for the duration of their treatment.
Additionally, doctors, nurse practitioners, and nurses are available to supervise an individual’s vital signs to ensure the health and wellbeing of those who are receiving this type of care. Given this level of support, a person is more likely to be able to refrain from continued OxyContin abuse and reach the next stage of his or her recovery journey.
On the other hand, should a person not seek treatment for an OxyContin addiction, the effects that could occur may be devastating. The strife that is widely known to accompany the withdrawal process can be so overwhelming that the person is triggered to resume his or her use of this potent painkiller once more. When this occurs, the risk of a more serious addiction developing is great. Additionally, an individual is at risk of venturing out an abusing other substances as a means of achieving an even more intense high. These effects can also increase the potential of overdose, which can be fatal.
What is important to know, however, is that these effects as well as the other detriments of OxyContin abuse can be avoided all together. By engaging in care that includes detoxification services, it is possible for a person, no matter how serious the addiction to OxyContin may be, to achieve his or her recovery goals.
