Oxaydo is a pain reliever intended as a short-term, as-needed treatment for acute pain. The active ingredient in Oxaydo is oxycodone. Oxycodone is front and center in the nation’s opioid epidemic because it’s one of the prescription opioids most often misused in the U.S. Oxycodone binds to opioid receptors and can cause a euphoric high, even when used as prescribed. Oxycodone easily has the potential to become addictive, whether people misuse it or take it as instructed. In fact, many people who ultimately become addicted to oxycodone and other pharmaceutical opioids started with legitimate prescription use. Oxaydo has built-in features designed to prevent intranasal misuse, but the potential for addiction still very much exists with this narcotic. If someone feels they require treatment for Oxaydo addiction, there are different options available. Most people will also be dependent when they’re addicted to opioids, so they will usually start with a medical detox. Following a medical detox, someone might participate in inpatient rehab or an outpatient program.
With opioids like oxycodone, physical dependence is common. When someone is dependent on Oxaydo and they stop using it cold turkey, they will likely experience withdrawal symptoms. Symptoms can be severe and uncomfortable. A full detox is necessary before addiction treatment can begin, and a medical detox may be the best way to get to this point. During an Oxaydo medical detox, patients may be given medication-assisted treatment options, such as buprenorphine. There are FDA-approved drugs that can help reduce opioid cravings and mitigate withdrawal symptoms. Following a full Oxaydo medical detox, addiction treatment can begin.
Oxaydo rehabilitation programs may include a combination of medications as well as various types of therapy, like cognitive-behavioral therapy. Some Oxaydo rehab programs might not use medication at all, and it might be entirely based on therapy. There are varying lengths of Oxaydo rehabilitation programs available, some lasting for 28 days, and going all the way up to a year in certain instances. Oxaydo rehabilitation programs can also be structured differently from one another. Regardless of the differences, an Oxaydo rehab program needs to view addiction as a disease that’s treatable but complex. The goal isn’t just to help someone stop using Oxaydo and other substances. The objective should also be to help them return to their families, their jobs and their lives productively.
Inpatient Oxaydo rehab requires patients to live onsite in a facility. When someone checks into inpatient Oxaydo rehab, their entire focus is on treatment and recovery. The first part of an inpatient Oxaydo rehab is almost always going to be a medically supervised detox. From there an individualized treatment plan can be created for patients. An inpatient Oxaydo rehab offers a great deal of support and structure. However, it might not be the right option for everyone. An inpatient rehab program does require patients follow a very strict schedule, and there isn’t a lot of freedom. Participants also have to leave their work and their home environment. Inpatient Oxaydo rehab does offer the opportunity to escape from triggers and stressors in the person’s everyday environment. Programs may include different types of therapy as well as job and life skills training and even meditation and yoga. There is also a focus on holistic health in inpatient rehab, such as nutrition. An inpatient Oxaydo rehab can provide dual diagnosis treatment for underlying and co-occurring mental health disorders if necessary.
Outpatient Oxaydo rehab doesn’t have a residential component. These programs tend to be much less structured and formalized. Outpatient Oxaydo rehab may include group and individual therapy sessions held throughout the week. These sessions may be based on specific therapy approaches like cognitive behavioral therapy or on 12-step concepts. Outpatient Oxaydo rehab will usually be less expensive than an inpatient program, and participants can continue living and working largely as normal. However, an outpatient Oxaydo rehab might not be intensive enough for some people. Some people participate in outpatient rehab as their only form of addiction treatment, but it may also be something people participate in after a residential rehab program.
Whether someone is choosing a rehab to meet their own treatment needs or they’re choosing a rehab center for their loved one, there is a lot to think about. The following are some questions to keep in mind when choosing an Oxaydo rehab center:
- Is there a medical detoxification program?
- Is insurance accepted, and if so, which types of insurance?
- What is the location like?
- Is the person comfortable leaving their home environment, and would this be the best option?
- Is the rehab facility licensed and accredited?
- What are specific types of therapy utilized?
- How long will the program last?
- What is aftercare planning like?
- What are the facilities like if it’s an inpatient rehab?
- Has the person already tried other types of treatment?
- What is the severity of the addiction?
- Is the individual misusing multiple substances simultaneously?
- Are there mental and physical health concerns, aside from Oxaydo addiction?
