Oxycodone is a drug legitimately prescribed for severe, chronic pain that demands treatment. It is a semi-synthetic opioid partly derived from the poppy flower plant. Oxycodone is addictive, and causes psychological dependency. Long term use of Oxycodone produces brain changes that keep a person from quitting on their own, if, they can even identify they are misusing the drug.
Long Island Sunrise Detox provides an Oxycodone detox treatment that first flushes the drug’s metabolites from the body, under a monitored and medically approved protocol that relieves withdrawal symptoms, followed by therapy. Oxycodone tends to develop a psychological necessity for the drug, and therapy and counseling is necessary, even while a person is detoxing from Oxycodone dependency. The combination of detox and therapy is the best method for someone who wants to overcome Oxycodone addiction. Recovery doesn’t end with detox, and counseling is recommended.
Long-term Oxycodone dependency causes extremely uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. Long Island Sunrise Detox is fully equipped to administer Oxycodone medical detox through a process that manages physical and psychological symptoms. These symptoms can range from mild to severe intensity and may include a combination of fever, stomach cramps, high blood pressure, irritability and restlessness, anxiety, nausea, elevated heart rate, dehydration, and aspiration. Detoxing from Oxycodone has less risks and complications than detoxing from other substances; however, the medically supervised detox facilities at the Long Island Sunrise Detox is able to provide a more comfortable process, while supervising any withdrawal complication risks that may arise.
