About OxyContin.

OxyContin is the brand name for the opioid painkiller oxycodone, which acts as a painkiller for people who suffer from bone or neurological degeneration, end-stage cancer or similar illnesses. It can be taken orally via pills, snorted, or intravenously.

Identifying it.

OxyContin is a highly addictive drug that can lead to addiction even when adhering to doctor’s instruction, as they develop tolerance that requires more than the prescribed dosage, leading to the illegal obtainment of the drug, a sign of addiction. Symptoms of abuse include drowsiness, sedation, euphoria, lightheadedness, itching, nausea/vomiting, constipation, low blood pressure, respiratory suppression, headache, dry mouth, and sweating. The withdrawal of OxyContin can lead to symptoms such as yawning, runny nose and eyes, difficulty in breathing, unpleasant mood, muscle aches, insomnia, excessive sweating, fever, chills, goose bumps, nausea/vomiting, and diarrhea.

Treating it.

OxyContin addiction can be fatal. We provide individual recovery plans tailored to the patient, generally composed of three stages: the integrated detox program, the residential program, and the intensive outpatient program. At first, the patient undergoes 24-hour supervision with psychiatric and nursing support, as well as group and individual counseling and therapy and gender-specific recovery programs. This prepares patients for the next stage, generally a 30-day process, with 24/7 guidance and support from the clinical team, as well as nutritious diet plans with meals prepared by a private chef and recreational activities on weekends under staff supervision. When ready, the patients then transition to an outpatient program in which 20-30 sessions over 30-45 days promote mindful relapse prevention, with evening meetings and group as well as individual assignments. Transportation and housing are provided.
