Oxycodone Addiction Treatment & Rehab

Just like cancer or diabetes, oxycodone addiction is a medical condition that requires medical treatment to recover from. Because of the taboo surrounding addiction, many people don’t understand that an addict doesn’t choose to become one and quitting is more than an act of willpower. The Recovery Village understands this challenge, however — our facility is staffed with addiction science experts who have spent years working in the field, and who may have even gone through addiction treatment themselves. We’ve helped so many patients recover from oxycodone addiction over the years, and we know we can help you too. Contact us at The Recovery Village to enroll in treatment today.
Addiction rehabilitation is a proven method of treatment for drug addiction. Treatment involves a mix of psychiatric counseling, medical oversight, medication management, nutritional counseling and alternative therapies. Combined, these treatment methods help patients understand addiction in general, as well as their personal experience with oxycodone addiction.

In therapy, patients will explore how their addiction began, what they were using oxycodone to cope with and what triggers their cravings to use more of the drug. Patients will receive medical care to make sure they detox healthily and are benefitting from the pharmacological benefits of other medications in moderation. Nutritional counseling and alternative therapies round out the experience, teaching patients the importance of self-care and stress management.

All of these skills are essential in teaching patients how to live a sober, healthy life without the influence of oxycodone. In many cases, addiction treatment saves lives, as addiction can easily become fatal the longer it goes on.

The best addiction treatment programs take place at rehabilitation facilities. Quality rehab facilities employ well-educated doctors, clinicians and nurses experienced in the addiction space. The facility should offer a clean, relaxing sober environment to help patients focus on their recovery. If the facility offers inpatient rehab, it should also offer some simple amenities to make patients more comfortable, such as plush beds and an on-staff dietician to create healthy meals. Florida is considered the rehab capital of the United States, and that’s where The Recovery Village is located.

Our treatment team is dedicated to making each patient’s journey to recovery successful. Treatment plans are tailored to each patient for this reason, however, all treatment plans follow these basic steps:

  1. Evaluation
  2. Detoxification
  3. Treatment
  4. Aftercare planning

During evaluation, our team will meet with you to run some tests and ask some questions. The purpose of the evaluation phase is to fully understand you, your relationship with oxycodone, and any other conditions you may be facing. It’s important we know all of the details of your oxycodone addiction, including which medication you were abusing, how frequently you got high, the dosage, and what drugs you may have mixed oxycodone with. We will also ask specific questions in an attempt to diagnose a co-occurring disorder such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder.

After we complete the evaluation and create a treatment plan suited to your needs, detoxification can begin. Most patients detox with us at The Recovery Village, but a few already come to our campus having gotten oxycodone out of their system.

Following detox, treatment can begin. Treatment plans will consist of individual counseling, group counseling, family counseling and alternative therapies, among other elements. Both inpatient and outpatient rehabs will experience these treatment features. Treatment times can vary, again based on each patient’s individual needs. The minimum length of treatment at The Recovery Village is 28 days, however, we typically recommend patients stay longer. Research shows patients are less likely to relapse the longer they stay in rehab.

Aftercare planning is also essential in preventing relapse. Before a patient’s treatment is complete, our team will arrange doctor’s appointments, therapy appointments and membership in a 12-step program from them at home so they can continue the work they started at The Recovery Village.

Residential rehab, also called inpatient rehab, is one of the most beneficial forms of treatment for oxycodone addicts. During inpatient rehab, patients move into The Recovery Village, leaving the stressors and triggers of oxycodone addiction behind. Living in a sober environment is extremely beneficial for newly-sober patients who may still be facing cravings for oxycodone. Living at The Recovery Village also allows patients to build relationships with others in recovery who are going through a similar experience. This sense of community and camaraderie has proven invaluable for many patients in their recovery journey. Such an environment also allows for 24/7 supervision, in the case of a health emergency.

During treatment, inpatients will work one-on-one with their primary counselor, as well as with a group of other patients in group therapy and alternative therapies. In addition, residential patients also benefit from the many amenities The Recovery Village has to offer. Such amenities include:

  • Constant access to The Recovery Village staff
  • Medication management
  • Plush beds
  • Linen service
  • Private bathrooms
  • Dietary counseling and catered, nutritious meals
  • Fitness center
  • Sunny, subtropical Florida climate
  • Alternative therapies, such as yoga and equine therapy

Inpatient treatment offers a particular element of convenience for out-of-state patients who have chosen to travel to The Recovery Village from across the country. An all-inclusive room and board package removes several stressors from the recovery process, especially when the patient is not familiar with the area. Still, this peace of mind is also beneficial to locals, and many Floridians also choose to become inpatients at The Recovery Village. Many local inpatients enjoy residential treatment because it offers a level of confidentiality they may not have access to if participating in outpatient rehab.

Inpatient and outpatient rehab are very similar, however, outpatient rehab does not involve a residential component. For this reason, inpatient rehab typically costs more than outpatient rehab. The minimum stay for inpatient rehab at The Recovery Village is 28 days.

Outpatient rehab involves all the same components of inpatient rehab, except room and board at The Recovery Village. Instead of staying on campus, outpatients return to their home, or to a sober living or “halfway house” at night. Outpatient rehab is an excellent way for former inpatients to continue their treatment is a less controlled environment. This helps them ease back into everyday life responsibilities, rather than jumping in all at once. As patients go back to work, school or taking care of family responsibilities, they will maintain their treatment at The Recovery Village. For some outpatient, this occurs every day. For other outpatients, treatment only occurs on the weekends.  
The two main types of therapy a patient will participate in while experiencing rehab at The Recovery Village are individual and group counseling. During individual counseling, a patient will work one-on-one with their therapist to discuss their addiction to oxycodone. Much of this facetime will be spent focusing on the patient’s unique experiences and triggers.

In group therapy, patients meet with one or two counselors and several of their peers at the same time to discuss broader topics related to addiction. While individual counseling may happen only a few times a week for certain patients, group therapy occurs every day. During these group sessions, patients will broach common addiction-related topics such as:

  • Sexuality
  • Trauma
  • Family
  • Healthy relationships
  • Stigma
  • Coping mechanisms
  • Stress management
  • Anger management
  • Nutrition and healthy eating
  • Grief
  • Body image
  • Dual diagnosis
  • Communication skills
  • Relapse prevention

Group therapy is an especially important part of oxycodone addiction treatment because it teaches patients the value of communication. For many recovering addicts, sharing their story is a key part of maintaining their recovery. At first, however, many are hesitant to do so because of the backlash they may have previously received from friends, family or even strangers. This taboo surrounding addiction has caused a lack of self-esteem in many patients. Opening up during group therapy, however, shows patients that they are not alone, they are not bad people, and there is a healing power in communicating with others about their disease.

Other helpful parts of group therapy include alcohol and drug education, when patients learn about the science behind addiction to better understand it. In many cases, The Recovery Village extends this psychoeducation to family members of patients, so they may also understand addiction and what their loved one is going through. This knowledge often makes both parties more empathetic and fosters healing in damaged relationships.

Alternative therapies also offer many benefits to our patients. Often held outdoors, activities such as yoga, equine therapy, art therapy, journaling and gardening can grow a patient’s sense of self-worth, pride and accomplishment, while diminishing stress levels. Partaking in this kind of self-care outside of a counselor’s office has proven beneficial for many of our patients and leads to vast amounts of growth in treatment overall. As new research on alternative therapies emerges, The Recovery Village is committing to growing the number of alternative therapies we offer to accommodate all of our patients’ skill levels and interests.

A significant part of oxycodone addiction treatment is understanding what triggers the urge to use the drug. For some, it might be a certain place or person, or even an emotion. Many of our patients do not realize it before coming to The Recovery Village, but they could also be facing a second mental disorder that is triggering their cravings for oxycodone. It’s not uncommon for substance abusers to have a dual diagnosis, or experience a mental illness and substance use disorder at once.

Some of the most common co-occurring disorders include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety disorder
  • Post traumatic stress disorder
  • Schizophrenia
  • Attention deficit disorder
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Eating disorders (bulimia, anorexia, body dysmorphia disorder)

Depression may be the most common of all of these conditions because oxycodone addiction targets dopamine, the feel-good chemical in the brain, causing a high and then a depressive crash. As this example illustrates, a person’s oxycodone addiction and their dual diagnosis are intertwined, with one causing the other. Therefore, in order to truly treat the addiction fully, our team must also help the patient treat their dual diagnosis. This treatment focus is unique, however, our clinical staff at The Recovery Village truly believes this treatment focus is essential in order to attain oxycodone addiction recovery.

Drug rehab, like any other medical treatment method, is an expense patients have to consider when enrolling. As every patient’s treatment plan at The Recovery Village is different, it’s difficult to provide a generalized price quote. Factors that impact the cost of rehab include how long the patient is staying in treatment, whether they are enrolling as inpatient or outpatient and if they require detox or have already gone through detoxification. Most patients at The Recovery Village use their insurance plan to cover some or all of their treatment, but we also offer private pay options so everyone can have access to our quality addiction care.
Many insurance providers do cover oxycodone treatment in part or in full. The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, mandated healthcare marketplace plans cover substance abuse treatment and other mental health services. In addition, public insurance plans Medicare and Medicaid also cover substance abuse treatment. The level of coverage varies from plan to plan, however, especially if a person is using a private insurance plan through their employer. The best way to determine how much your insurance will cover rehab is to call a customer service representative or your benefits administrator at your employer. Our intake coordinators at The Recovery Village can also do this for you — we are experienced in working with insurance providers and know the right questions to ask to find all the answers quickly.
Alternatively, if your insurance does not cover all of rehab or if you don’t want to use insurance to pay for treatment, The Recovery Village accepts private pay. For some, this may mean paying with cash. It’s not uncommon for patients to loan money from friends or family to pay for treatment, or take out a private loan for the same purpose. Some employers also offer employee assistance programs for those needing addiction treatment or other medical funding. You may also be able to secure scholarships or grants through different clubs or groups, such as the Veterans Administration, to get help. Regardless of where the money comes from, our goal at The Recovery Village is to make quality care accessible to everyone. If you’re unsure how to pay for rehab, call our intake coordinators to go over your options.
