Vicodin Addiction & Detox Treatment

Vicodin Detox at Avatar Residential Detox Center

Vicodin is a pain reliever used to change your perception of pain and your emotional response to it. It’s a combination of acetaminophen and hydrocodone. Vicodin has been found to impact the liver heavily, and it has caused liver damage and severe allergic reactions, which can also result in an overdose. Vicodin detox enables users to clear their bodies of the drug safely. Vicodin withdrawal is challenging and potentially even threatening, so detox must be done under expert medical supervision—time for withdrawal symptoms to start to differ from person to person. The Long-term and short-term use of Vicodin can cause withdrawal symptoms.
