How to Detox from Home for Proper Oxycontin
Addiction Treatment
  • The idea is to stay away from the drug for long
    enough to give your brain a chance to heal. The
    opioid receptors start to function properly after
    some time and it all works fine. However, some
    people decide to detox from oxycontin at home but
    have to stick with the tapering method. It
    usually becomes an option when you have been
    taking oxycontin for long enough. It requires you
    to reduce the dose slowly. A good idea is to take
    the drug by swallow it with water and not snort,
    chew, or shoot it. You should also stick to a
    strict schedule and ask a friend to help you stay
    on track.
  • Whether you try quitting cold turkey or you stick
    to the tapering method, be ready to experience
    some withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms begin
    about 6 hours after you take your last dose. If
    you have completed stopped its use and are not
    going for the tapering off method, you may notice
    your oxycontin withdrawal peak 72 hours after
    your last use of the drug. The symptoms are
    likely to resolve in a week or so, but it can
    take longer depending on the doses administered
    and the duration of the use.

Most Effective Drug Withdrawal Treatment For
Substance Abuses
  • Oxycontin on its own is an effective painkiller,
    and this doesnt make the drug or its consumption
    bad if medically prescribed. On the contrary, the
    problem would arise when the drug is taken far
    above the recommended dose in a bid to experience
    any euphoric or high feeling. Likewise, you know
    that you are a qualified candidate for Oxycontin
    detox medication if you show any sign of these
    symptoms
  • You crave for the doses are extreme, and if you
    miss even a single dose, you physically withdraw
    yourself.
  • You have developed a clever and shady way to
    continue to have access to the drug. Have you
    been seeking them on the streets or going to
    multiple doctors for a prescription? If yes, then
    odds are high that you have entered the addictive
    phase.
  • If you begin to feel nervous or anxious at the
    slight thought of you not being able to use the
    drug again.
  • Your use of the drug is now compulsive,
    regardless of all the adverse social,
    physiological and physical consequences it comes
    with.
  • You require more and more doses to maintain that
    high and euphoric feeling.

Inpatient vs. Outpatient How Do You Choose the
Best Oxycontin Addiction Treatment?
  • Both inpatient and outpatient treatment programs
    have their benefits, but you will have to
    consider an inpatient treatment program when
    other options do not work. You can always start
    with a detox at home, but that may or may not
    work for you. This is when inpatient treatment
    programs work better because they provide you
    with medically supervised detox. They help get
    rid of oxycontin in a safe manner, and you will
    always feel more confidence with a team of
    medical specialists available to manage your
    physical and emotional withdrawal symptoms.
  • An inpatient oxycontin addiction treatment is
    also a better choice because the professionals
    would help identify any underlying mental
    illness. Failing to identify and treat the
    underlying mental illness will make the addiction
    treatment quite ineffective.

Ways to Tackle Withdrawal Symptoms after Quitting
Oxycontin
  • Some people who have been using oxycontin for
    quite long may also experience long-term
    withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms are usually
    less physical in nature and may only involve
    behavioural or emotional issues. Whatever the
    symptoms, you can improve your condition by
    taking the correct doses of OTC medications. For
    instance, you can take Imodium if you have
    diarrhea. In case you have nausea, some
    medications like dimenhydrinate and meclizine may
    help. Antihistamines may also help manage your
    nausea in a better way. Similarly, you can take
    acetaminophen or even opt for non-steroidal
    anti-inflammatory drugs to deal with body aches
    and pains. Just keep in mind that though OTC
    medications help, you should not use them for an
    extended period. You should avoid larger doses
    too.

How To Heal The Addicted Brain From OxyContin
Abuse
  • A new tool that aids the balance in the chemistry
    of the addict has been discovered. The tool is an
    All-Natural drink which feeds the addicted brain
    with the important nutrients it lacks. Most
    importantly, the depleted neurotransmitters are
    restored and the cravings for OxyContin are
    inhibited.
  • Knowing the extent to which an addict can be
    affect is somewhat difficult. Nonetheless,
    pointers for the possibility of addiction could
    be when you have an urge for the drug when you
    are not in pain, if you are fighting the urge to
    take it or when you begin to imagine what a life
    without the drug will be.
