Is Oxycodone Addicitive?

Oxycodone is a prescription opioid pain medication commonly known as OxyContin and Roxicodone. When a doctor prescribes this medication, it can be used to treat severe pain. Prolonged use of Oxycodone increases a person’s risk of becoming physically dependent on the medication or developing an addiction to it. 

Oxycodone will impact your body similarly to other opioids. When Oxycodone is used for medical purposes, it binds to the opioid receptors in our brains, decreasing the pain we feel within our body. An additional effect of the medication is that it can make us feel relaxed.

If someone were to abuse their prescription or get ahold of Oxycodone illegally, they are likely trying to reach the euphoric effects that can come when you take a higher dose of the medication. The emotional relief, pain relief, and changes within our brain functions all contribute to the development of an Oxycodone addiction. 

The staff at the Sequoia Recovery Centers has experience supporting individuals who are experiencing withdrawal from Oxycodone. Withdrawal is known to be an uncomfortable and stressful experience for those who are trying to get clean. Our staff will support you during this time with medications that can ease some of your symptoms and positive encouragement and support.

What Are the Signs of Oxycodone Abuse?

When someone abuses Oxycodone, you will likely notice changes in their behaviors and physical appearance. If someone is abusing a prescription of Oxycodone, you may notice that they run out of their prescription earlier than they should or that they take their doses closer together than they were directed to do.

Individuals who abuse Oxycodone will likely have pinpoint pupils. Oxycodone is also known to cause slowed breathing which can be a dangerous concern. Someone who has been abusing Oxycodone will likely experience withdrawal symptoms if they do not continue using. 

When we look at the behavioral changes that occur, you may notice some or all of the following:

  • Decreased time spend with loved ones and friends
  • Less time spent with hobbies and other interests
  • Financial difficulties
  • A change in their daily routine
  • Difficulties at work or loss of employment
  • New or worsening legal charges
  • Relationship turmoil 
  • Dishonesty and manipulation

Detox helps to treat the physical symptoms of addiction but what happens next tackles the psychological part of addiction: your personalized ongoing care. 

With our treatment center you can pick from several levels of care based on needs:

  • Residential, which is the highest level of care and requires you to live at our treatment center during your program
  • PHP, a full time outpatient program lasting a couple of weeks
  • IOP, a part time outpatient program lasting several weeks
  • Traditional outpatient, which is the lowest level of care intended to offer limited, ongoing support upon completing other levels of care. 

When you start your ongoing treatment, regardless of level, you can expect to spend every day you receive services in a structured fashion; we provide you with a schedule of all the services and amenities you will complete so you know where to be, and when. 

A lot of emphasis during recovery is placed on therapy, both individual and group therapy. In some cases, after your initial detox, we might recommend family therapy to address family involvement in long term recovery or to repair family relationships damaged by addiction.

Types of Therapy Used During Treatment

During your group and individual therapy sessions you can expect several types of therapies to be used based on your needs.

Cognitive behavioral therapy is one of the most common because it helps you identify harmful behaviors that may have led to substance abuse. This is achieved by addressing the underlying thought patterns that led to the harmful behaviors. It involves a lot of reflection and homework on your behalf but the benefit to this especially if you participate in cognitive behavioral therapy through an outpatient program, is the opportunity to reflect and apply coping skills in real time.

Cognitive behavioral therapy and other therapies help you anticipate triggers and devise strategies to address your triggers so that you don’t relapse. Long-term success hinges on your ability to device personalized coping strategies and lifestyle changes that help you focus on long-term sobriety like:

  • Prioritizing sleep hygiene
  • Being mindful
  • Focusing on accepting all of your emotions, not trying to hide or mask negative ones with drugs or alcohol
  • Being aware of your limits and setting boundaries

What Are the Symptoms of Oxycodone Withdrawal?

Oxycodone withdrawal can occur for someone who has developed a physical dependence on the medication. It is important to note that it is possible to take Oxycodone as prescribed, develop a physical dependence, and not have an addiction to the medication. 

Someone who is going through Oxycodone withdrawal can feel some or all of the following:

  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Restlessness
  • Muscle aches
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Sweating 
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Cramping
  • Nausea 
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Paranoia
  • Rapid heart rate

While some may not think that Oxycodone withdrawal is as dangerous as other substances, the bottom line is that detoxing from opioids can lead to health complications.

What is the Detox Timeline for Oxycodone Withdrawal?​

A common question that we are asked is how long does oxy withdrawal last? The truth is that this can vary from person to person, and is impacted by several factors. For example, your withdrawal symptoms depend on your health, how long you have been abusing oxy, how much oxy you take daily, and if you are taking other substances. 

Typically, individuals will begin to notice some withdrawal symptoms 12-24 hours from their last time of use. Initially, these symptoms are mild and can resemble the flu. Over the next few days, physical and mental health symptoms begin to worsen. Mental health symptoms, such as depression and anxiety, tend to last longer than some of the physical symptoms you can experience. 

Sequoia Recovery Centers can provide you with support while you detox from Oxycodone. Opioid withdrawal can include physical and mental health concerns. Both of which our staff can support you through. We believe that having a positive experience in a detox program can help you in your recovery.
