Percocet Addiction Treatment
Sprout Health Texas provides a safe and tranquil environment.
Percocet is one of the most widely abused opioid prescriptions among Americans. It is mostly used to reduce fever and pain that are accompanied by muscle aches. While it sounds harmless, it is still an opioid and extremely addictive.
Opioids are said to be natural transpiring drugs, while Percocet is mostly synthetic. Although there is a difference between the natural and synthetic, the addictive effects are exactly the same. Most Percocet users actually use their prescription to ease their pain; however, there are some who begin to abuse the drug in order to continually feel no pain. Studies show that all addictions begin with abuse; therefore, it is extremely important to receive treatment at the first signs of abuse. If not, the continual use will create a tolerance and dependence on the drug, thus causing addiction. Addiction is much harder to treat than abuse, but at least it is treatable.
Percocet is dangerous because it significantly affects our brain’s central nervous system as well as our respiratory system and gastrointestinal tract. Those who abuse and become addicted to Percocet enjoy the euphoric feeling it produces; however, the negative effects can significantly impact their health. Symptoms of percocet abuse include:
How To Properly Treat Percocet Addiction
In order to combat Percocet addiction, you must first completely remove it from your body. Sprout Health Texas offers detoxification processes that can either be handled at our facility or in a hospital setting depending on the severity of the addiction. During the detox, we will also administer nutritional and psychiatric therapies in order to supplement the process. Once the body is cleansed, it is time to cleanse the mind and soul.
We offer a wide variety of therapies during our treatment programs which will help teach our patients coping skills and how to manage their maladaptive and addictive behaviors. During our Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, our patients will learn to recognize their triggers and find ways to correct them on their own. We aim to help patients regain their self-esteem and rebuild broken relationships through open communication and trust.
