OxyContin Drug Rehab in Arizona

Effective, Supportive Oxy Recovery Center for Young Men

While the opioid painkiller, OxyContin, is a godsend prescription drug for those who have severe, chronic pain, those who take it even under doctor’s advice should know they are highly susceptible to addiction. OxyContin, which is the brand name for oxycodone, is a narcotic opioid and produces effects similar to heroin (some even call it “hillbilly heroin” for this reason). The rush of euphoria, feeling of calmness, and lack of anxiety make the user crave more and more “Oxy” to function. This is the hallmark of addiction when someone cannot stop taking the desired substance because they’ve become physically dependent.

After a while, the Oxy addict may begin to become desperate for a stronger high, as using the same dose as before doesn’t produce as potent of a high. That may take the form of crushing the pills and dissolving them in water to inject the mixture into a vein. Others may snort the powder.

If you are struggling with an addiction to OxyContin, or you know someone who is, now is the time to seek help. Call us at Blueprints for Recovery: (888) 744-9969.

How Does OxyContin Affect the Brain?

When followed according to the prescribing physician’s orders, OxyContin can provide much-welcome pain relief and relaxation. However, with misuse and abuse, it becomes impossible to untangle the knot and go back to where you were before, that is, without successful medical detoxification and intervention.

In the short-term, opioids provide pain relief and make users feel relaxed and euphoric. But with repeated use, the following symptoms become apparent:

  • Drowsiness and sleeping constantly
  • Confusion
  • Gastrointestinal distress: nausea, vomiting, constipation, difficulty urinating
  • Mood swings
  • Slowed breathing

When breath slows too much, the brain cannot get enough oxygen (“hypoxia”), which can cause severe short- or long-term neurological effects, even a coma, permanent brain damage, or death.

Medical Detox from OxyContin Is Important

Without careful medical help, detoxing from OxyContin can be horrifically painful, and usually unsuccessful. At Blueprints for Recovery, we recommend a safe, rapid opiate detoxification process to assist with the withdrawal process of detoxing from OxyContin. After detox, you will join our inpatient residential phase where you will learn how to start life with a fresh slate, clean and sober.
