Learn More About Oxycodone Abuse Recovery at Wilmington Treatment Center
Oxycodone is an opioid that can be found within many prescription painkillers, such as OxyContin and Percocet. This medication is used for the treatment of severe pain that accompanies surgery, a chronic pain condition, injury, or the pain elicited by a specific medical illness.
When used as directed, and under the guidance of a prescribing professional, oxycodone can provide much-needed relief for many people. However, because this substance brings on feelings of relaxation, sedation, and euphoria, it is desirable to those who do not need it for medical reasons. As this drug starts to become consumed on a regular basis, tolerance can be developed, causing individuals to have to take more and more of the substance to achieve the desired effects.
The result of this tolerance can be physical dependence, which causes users to suffer extreme difficulty in stopping their behavior. However, there are options for treatment available that are specially designed to help individuals end their abuse of oxycodone for good.
At Wilmington Treatment Center, we understand how challenging it can be to overcome an addiction to any kind of substance, such as oxycodone. In order to help those individuals develop the skills needed to battle this addiction and continue healthy functioning, we have developed specialized programming that is capable of helping individuals take the first step towards making their first steps towards a life of sobriety.

When a loved one or a family member is addicted to a substance, including oxycodone, it can be hard to come to terms with it. If you have someone who you love who has developed an addiction to oxycodone, you are likely grappling with a series of emotions regarding his or her behaviors. It is imperative to know that there are dozens of things that you can do to help your loved one, and some of these options can include the following:
- Get as much information as you can about oxycodone including the effects, symptoms, and signs of use so that you can be educated about your loved one’s condition. In addition, spend time learning about addiction as a disease, not a choice. Doing so can help you weed through some of the anger you are feeling and develop a healthy sense of empathy.
- Spend time looking into different treatment centers that are able to provide help and support to your loved one. This information can help you better understand the kind of treatment that your loved one may require.
- Sit down with your loved one and express your concerns, while also sharing your findings. Approach him or her in a non-judgmental manner and encourage him or her to accept treatment. Prepare for him or her to be standoffish, however continue to encourage entry into treatment.
- If your loved one accepts treatment, remind him or her that you will be supportive during the entire process. You can remain a strong source of strength for him or her if you practice good self-care during this time.
Why Consider Rehab for Oxycodone Abuse at Wilmington Treatment Center
When treatment is not obtained, an addiction to oxycodone can ruin one’s life. The physical pain that can develop in response to substance abuse can include anything ranging from constipation to vital organ damage. Socially, individuals tend to withdraw themselves as their focus begins to be placed on their oxycodone use. Relationships can suffer, family conflict can erupt, and divorce can become a reality. Additionally, the effects that this substance can have on an individual’s cognition once it has been consumed can lead to a decline at work, which can cause job loss, chronic unemployment, and financial concern. The longer that an addiction such as this continues, the more vulnerable individuals become to struggling with suicidal ideation and self-harming behaviors. Thankfully, there is help available. These consequences can be effectively defeated when comprehensive care is received.
