Oxycodone is a very potent medication that can be prescribed to treat pain on its own or combined with other medications. While oxycodone has provided relief to many who grapple with physical pain, it has also been abused by many, as its properties are highly addictive when used outside of professional recommendations and/or for recreational purposes.

If you begin abusing oxycodone regularly, you are likely to develop a tolerance to it, which means that your body becomes accustomed to the presence of it and then needs more of it in order for the desired effects (such as euphoria and relaxation) to be achieved. When the consumption of oxycodone increases, or begins to occur more often, your body can then become dependent. As a result, the body becomes unable to function in the manner it did prior to your use. Once this dependency has formed, it typically takes professional treatment to aid in you defeating this dangerous substance abuse problem.

What to Expect

What to expect during detox from oxycodone

Withdrawal occurs when your body attempts to readjust itself to how it used to function before oxycodone was introduced. This can be extremely painful and emotionally overwhelming, and even lead to serious health concerns. Some of the potential symptoms of oxycodone withdrawal can include the following:

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

Since withdrawal symptoms can be distressing, many find that they begin looking for a means to stop the physical and psychological effects that develop. One of the easiest ways to do so is to begin abusing oxycodone again, which can be very dangerous and cause a deadly spiral of addiction to begin.

Why Choose Detox

Why choose detoxification from oxycodone at MeadowWood

If you are addicted to oxycodone, you can prevent continuing your patterns of abuse and addiction by engaging in detox, which can help minimize the withdrawal symptoms you can experience. This is a physiological process where dangerous substances like oxycodone are cleared from the body. By obtaining detox at a professional treatment center, you can have oxycodone cleared from your system without experiencing the extreme level of pain associated with withdrawing on your own.

At MeadowWood Behavioral Health Hospital in Wilmington, DE, we go above and beyond to ensure that your detox is as comfortable and as effective as possible. We offer professional supervision and continuous interaction with our medical staff to ensure your wellbeing.


Long-term benefits of oxycodone detox at MeadowWood in New Castle, DE

If you decide to forego treatment for your oxycodone addiction, or if you do not receive professional detox before starting treatment, the results can be ineffective. Additionally, staying dependent on oxycodone or oxycodone-combination medications can cause many relapses if detox is not completed, which can cause you to feel hopeless about ever getting sober. However, if you do engage in detox, you afford yourself the chance to overcome your addiction once and for all.

Engaging in a detox program will allow you to clear your mind and begin understanding how and why your addiction developed in the manner that it did. This is highly beneficial and can aid you in developing the self-confidence and skills needed to continue on in a life of recovery.

If you are ready to begin a new life that is free from oxycodone addiction, MeadowWood Behavioral Health Hospital near New Castle, DE can help. Do not wait one more day to get the help you deserve. Call us today.
