Learn How To Safely Detox From Percocet

Detoxing from percocet can be the most difficult part of addiction to overcome. Crestwyn can ensure you or your loved one that the detoxification process will be both safe and comfortable.

First Step to Recovery

Detox: the first step to recovery

Percocet is a very potent opioid medication that is usually prescribed to individuals who are struggling with physical pain. Containing both acetaminophen and oxycodone, which is an opioid, this medication can be highly addictive. Percocet is most commonly prescribed by a professional who provides a warning that this medication can be habit-forming if it is taken outside of its prescribed guidelines. When a person chooses to ignore this warning, he or she can suffer many consequences.

Additionally, there are those who consume Percocet for purposes that are non-medical. Most often done in an effort to achieve a high that includes feelings of detachment from one’s surroundings, euphoria, and relaxation, the abuse of Percocet can cause many negative effects. When the abuse of Percocet becomes regular or the use itself has no medical need, an addiction can develop and treatment is likely needed to put a stop to this form of substance abuse.

When care is required to end an addiction to Percocet, a user can benefit from participating in a program that includes detoxification, or detox. This form of treatment allows individuals to clear their bodies of toxic substances like Percocet so that any withdrawal pain that he or she is suffering from can be minimized and other aspects of recovery can be focused on.

Withdrawal

What happens during Percocet withdrawal

Those who abuse Percocet are not doing so to develop an addiction to it. Therefore, when someone tries to put a stop to his or her Percocet use after having abused it for a long period of time, the symptoms of withdrawal will set in and can be extremely upsetting.

Since Percocet abuse can lead to the development of tolerance, which then causes a user to consume more of it in an effort to achieve desired effects, withdrawal is likely to occur when use stops. Percocet withdrawal can include the following symptoms:

  • Abdominal cramping
  • Insomnia
  • Nausea
  • Shakiness
  • Depression
  • Agitation
  • Anxiety
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea

By receiving the right treatment for Percocet abuse that includes detox, a user can obtain relief from withdrawal and begin developing the skills he or she needs to achieve recovery.

Detox

Detoxification from Percocet at Crestwyn Behavioral Health

Each patient at Crestwyn will receive an assessment to determine if he or she requires detox at the beginning of his or her recovery process. When necessary, detox will be the first step in one’s care, and each individual will be made as comfortable as possible during the withdrawal process. We have a team of medical professionals available to ensure that each patient’s health and wellbeing are being appropriately cared for at this phase of treatment.

Once completed, someone who was previously stuck within a deadly cycle of Percocet abuse will begin to experience relief from withdrawal symptoms, achieve a clearer mindset, and be healthy enough to start participating in other parts of our program.

Long Term Benefits

Long-term benefits of detox for Percocet addiction

If someone decides to forego treatment for his or her Percocet addiction, he or she will likely continue to abuse this medication. If an individual does get care but does not receive detox, there is a higher risk that he or she will suffer from one or more relapses. For these reasons and more, it is imperative that an individual who is addicted to Percocet obtain detox, as well as other kinds of treatment, to put a stop to this form of chemical dependency for good.

Not only will one’s withdrawal symptoms be decreased, but one will also be able to place his or her entire focus on recovering. Because an addiction to Percocet can prompt an individual to put his or her substance abuse above all else, detox can be highly beneficial in helping him or her achieve the clarity of mind necessary to adjust his or her priorities so that recovering and obtaining the skills needed to prevent Percocet abuse in the future can occur.

At Crestwyn, we know just what it takes to overcome an addiction to Percocet, and we are pleased to offer the support, services, and guidance our patients require to get back in control of their lives. Therefore, if you or someone you love is looking to overcome this kind of substance abuse problem, we encourage you to reach out to us to obtain more information about the services we provide.

I loved the staff! Most of the techs and nurses were wonderful. The doctors were great, too. I would choose it again if I had to go back.
