What Happens During OxyContin Rehab
OxyContin is a continuous-release opiate painkiller that is provided in capsule form and intended to be taken twice a day for moderate to severe pain relief. Although OxyContin has only been on the market for a short time (since 1995), it has quickly become a drug that is commonly manipulated and abused.

What is an OxyContin Rehab?
From immersive inpatient residential treatment centers to outpatient treatment facilities, there are a number of options. Determining which one is the right one for you will depend upon your schedule commitments, your finances and/or what your insurance covers, as well as the specifics of your OxyContin addiction (i.e., how long you have been using the drug, the dose you are currently taking, other drugs of addiction, et cetera).
What Part Does OxyContin Detox Play in OxyContin Rehab?
For the majority of those addicted to the drug, OxyContin rehab will begin with physical detoxification. Detoxification is safest when conducted under the surveillance of a medical doctor. Without the help of a doctor during detox, symptoms of withdrawal are a real and overwhelming factor. Although these symptoms are not fatal in most cases, they are incredibly distressful to the body and mind.
- Severe agitation
- Hot and cold flashes
- Nausea and vomiting
- Muscle aches
In many cases, the concentration of the symptoms will coincide with the dosages and the speed of withdrawal.
How Does OxyContin Rehab Work?
OxyContin rehab begins with OxyContin detox as described above and, as you feel more physically comfortable, progresses to include therapy sessions, support groups, 12-step meetings, alternative therapeutic sessions and more. The focus is on exploring your personal battle with addiction and developing tools that will help you avoid relapse when you return home. As you reach your treatment goals, you create new ones until you successfully graduate from the program, at which point you may decide to go home or continue on to a sober living program.
Who Needs an OxyContin Rehab?
Without medical supervision, OxyContin withdrawal can be physically devastating. Symptoms of opiate withdrawal include nausea and vomiting, insomnia, restlessness, muscle and bone pain and more. Those who have chronic illnesses or other health problems may suffer coma or even death should they try to stop taking OxyContin without help.
If you have attempted to stop using OxyContin on your own and have been unsuccessful or if you have undergone OxyContin detox or addiction treatment in the past but have relapsed, then you need OxyContin rehab.
