About Hydrocodone Addiction

Hydrocodone Detox at Avatar Residential Detox Center

Hydrocodone products are the most commonly prescribed prescription drugs. While pain relief medication can help treat severe pain from surgery, injury, or illness, it can also lead to dependence and addiction, mainly when not used as prescribed. Hydrocodone addiction is treatable with our medically assisted detox programs. Medically managed detox is one part of the MAT process; we also offer residential inpatient treatment consisting of behavioral therapy and counseling to help patients overcome their addictive tendencies and get to the root cause of their substance use. We honor the opportunity to assist clients in combating hydrocodone addiction.

Hydrocodone Addiction in NJ

Persistent cravings characterize addiction, continued use despite adverse consequences, and the inability to control drug use. Misuse of hydrocodone can result in addiction or physical dependence on the drug. People addicted to hydrocodone will experience uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms if they cease taking the medication entirely or reduce the dosage.

Hydrocodone Addiction and Mental Health Disorders

A study performed by STAT showed that more than half of all opioid prescriptions written in the United States are for individuals with mental health disorders such as anxiety, depression, and other mood disorders. Individuals who suffer from mood disorders are also more likely to become addicted to prescription opioids.

We offer an array of treatment programs for treating co-occurring disorders. Whether an individual uses hydrocodone to self-medicate their mental health symptoms or develops a mental health disorder resulting from hydrocodone use, recovery is possible.

Whether it’s mental health disorders or substance abuse use comes first, treating a mental health disorder or co-occurring substance use disorder requires a medical specialist.

Hydrocodone Detox Withdrawal Symptoms

Hydrocodone or narcotic analgesics withdrawal symptoms are essentially the opposite of the effects that the hydrocodone drug produces. For instance, while hydrocodone abuse causes effects of euphoria, withdrawal often induces depression. Likewise, misuse of hydrocodone can result in excessive fatigue, whereas withdrawal causes insomnia. Discontinuing hydrocodone “cold turkey” or without medical supervision carries significant risks that can be life-threatening. Call your doctor immediately if you are alone and experience any of the following side effects.

Hydrocodone withdrawal side effects include the following:

  • Dilated Pupils
  • Anxiety and Agitation
  • Teary Eyes
  • General Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Joint and Muscle Pain
  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea and Vomiting
  • Runny Nose
  • Fever
  • Sweating even at room temperature
  • Yawning

Hydrocodone Detox Center NJ at Avatar

At our state-of-the-art medical detox facility, a team of medical professionals provides 24-hour supervision while the client detoxes. We help clients get through withdrawal safely and comfortably. An at-home detox or a self-detox method can be life-threatening, uncomfortable, offer minimal results, and later lead to a full relapse. The first step to overcome hydrocodone addiction is to get through the withdrawal period successfully.

Once the client has completed the detox, we offer inpatient residential care and various cognitive-behavioral and holistic therapies to prevent relapse and promote long-term recovery. Detoxing from hydrocodone can also increase a person’s risk of overdose. As a person detoxes from hydrocodone, their body loses its tolerance to the drug. If they relapse and use the drug again and attempt to take their previous dose, they could experience an overdose. The results of the overdose could be fatal.

Hydrocodone Detox Timeline

Withdrawal symptoms of hydrocodone usually start within 6 to 12 hours of the last dose, and the symptoms last up to 2 weeks. The duration of time it takes to detox from hydrocodone, and the severity of symptoms depend on various factors such as the quantity regularly consumed and the length of time the user abused the substance. The detox center portion will be only one part of an individualized treatment plan that includes therapy, counseling, and aftercare planning.

First 48 hours

Patients usually experience intense drug cravings, mild muscle and stomach pain, and often mild depression, anxiety, and nausea during hydrocodone detox during the first portion of detox.

Next 72 hours

Acute muscle aches, diarrhea, excessive sweating, and vomiting are common symptoms during this period. For most people, diarrhea will likely stop, and withdrawal begins to subside on day five slowly.

Days 6-14

By this time, most physical symptoms will subside, leaving only psychological ones such as anxiety and depression at the forefront. Moreover, many people struggle with intense feelings of remorse for things they said or did while high during this time.

After the first two weeks

Psychological withdrawal symptoms like anxiety can linger for 18-24 months during the hydrocodone detox timeline. Anxiety is a symptom of PAWS and requires long-term addiction treatment and further individual or group therapy.

How can Hydrocodone addiction be treated?

There are many effective treatment options for hydrocodone addiction. A commonly used treatment is medication-assisted treatment, including methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone, which significantly reduce the risk of a deadly overdose, reduce cravings, and help many patients achieve lasting recovery. Additionally, people with severe hydrocodone dependence may battle more extended withdrawal symptoms. These may include depression, low mood, and continued cravings. MAT works to stabilize mood and reduce cravings. A combination of therapy, support groups, and other treatments enhances a person’s chance of long-term recovery.
