Cliffside Malibu - Hazy Beach Cliffs

Oxycontin Addiction Treatment

As one of the leading pain killers available today, is it really any wonder that Oxycontin treatment is also becoming common. We are, of course, talking about the narcotic, prescription pain killer Oxycontin. This is a drug prescribed most commonly to cancer patients who are terminal and individuals suffering from chronic pain. This drug is also stated as being the most widely abused since it was released and no other prescription drug can compare to the abuse rate of Oxycontin. Hence, as stated above, is it really any wonder that Oxycontin treatment is becoming very common.

Cliffside Malibu understands the epidemic that follows this narcotic and we offer one of the best Oxycontin drug addiction treatment programs available. It does not matter if you became addicted from a prescription or from obtaining Oxycontin illegally because we will not judge you. We view you as a unique individual facing a very serious disease that needs support and help. We will only offer you the individualized Oxycontin treatment program that you need in a luxury environment. Although this is not as simple as it may sound, all you need to do is call us, Cliffside Malibu, at (424) 320-3061.

Understanding Oxycontin & Treatment

During your Oxycontin treatment, you will begin to understand the dynamics of this narcotic and the reasons why you may have become addicted if you were using the drug properly or even if you were abusing the drug. Oxycontin, as stated above, is a strong narcotic pain killer used to treat the terminally ill and those of you suffering with chronic pain. As with any narcotic, Oxycontin has a high risk of being addictive because of how the drug affects your body. Similar to that of morphine and heroin, Oxycontin works by working with your opioid receptors, which are found in your brain, spinal cord, and muscle tissues, to alleviate pain. Essentially, this narcotic triggers your pleasure centers and your brain thinks your body is being rewarded in some way. You may feel “high,” relaxed, calm, or euphoria. However, just as with other narcotics, even if you are using Oxycontin properly, you can build a tolerance to it after prolonged use. This means you will need higher doses to feel what you felt originally.

At Cliffside Malibu, during your Oxycontin addiction treatment we want you to understand exactly how your body became addicted to the narcotic. This means you will need to learn about your mental and physical reaction to Oxycontin.

More Than Prescriptions

Your Oxycontin treatment can mean more than recovering from a prescription addiction because this drug is highly abused illegally. Not only will people obtain the drug illegally, but people, who may be you, actually misuse their prescriptions. This could be through cutting, crushing or snorting so that you get the full dose at once. Oxycontin, when used properly, is designed as a time release formula and only meant to be taken twice a day. At this point, it does not matter if you are feeding your addiction or think you need more to get rid of your pain, you may be using it other than how it was intended and are constantly needing higher doses.

Something that cannot be emphasized enough is that once you realize you have a person with substance use disorderion, you will need Oxycontin treatment. When the addiction set in, the way your body functions changed and you need professional help to get things back to normal. On the beautiful beaches of Malibu California, you will find one of the most luxurious drug rehab centers, Cliffside Malibu. While we do treat other addictions, we specialize in treating prescription addictions.

The Reality of Rehab & Oxycotin

During your rehabilitation process you will be faced with the reality of your Oxycontin addiction. This means during your Oxycontin treatment you will see just how deadly your addiction is. At Cliffside Malibu, your treatment will consist of process, relapse prevention, working with a recovery coach, and many other group and individual meetings (therapies). Essentially, what your Oxycontin treatment will show you, at least in the beginning, is that your addiction was leading to your death. If you were abusing this narcotic, you were at risk for an overdose. Overdosing on Oxycontin can lead to respiratory depression, unconsciousness, vomiting, coma, cold clammy skin, etc. An Oxycontin overdose can be fatal and this is why you need to seek Oxycontin treatment today.

Oxycotin Detox is Unavoidable

You must know by now that detox is an unavoidable part of your Oxycontin treatment. Without going through detox, you cannot begin to reach for sobriety. Even if this is an essential part of your rehabilitation process, it might also be one of the most intimidating parts. However, you cannot proceed into your full healing if your body is still physically dependent on Oxycontin. You have to convince your body that it no longer needs the drug to function through detox. You have to remove all remaining toxins of the narcotic from your body to reach lasting sobriety.

We believe it can be less intimidating and less stressful if you are in an environment that promotes relaxation and overall wellbeing. At Cliffside Malibu, this is exactly what you will get. Luxury, exclusiveness, quality treatment, professional and caring staff, and most importantly an Oxycontin treatment individualized for your unique addiction. In the environment you will be offered at Cliffside Malibu, not only will you be able to better handle your detox, but your Oxycontin rehabilitation will be something that changes all of you.
