A generic opioid, hydrocodone is the most prescribed painkiller in America. Used for everything from suppressing coughs to managing pain after surgery, this drug is, sadly, highly addictive. Hydrocodone attaches to the brain’s opioid receptors, making it easy to form a tolerance or even lead to overdose. Many who receive Vicodin or other brand names of hydrocodone soon find themselves dependent on this semi-synthetic opiate.
If you find yourself unable to stop using hydrocodone, don’t downplay your situation, and don’t try to go it alone. It takes more than willpower to overcome the disease of addiction. That’s where our hydrocodone hotline can help. Now is your chance to leave addiction behind, and we’re here to help you quit hydrocodone for good.
