Making the Decision to Quit Percodan

Making the decision to quit PercodanThere are many excuses that make quitting Percodan difficult, but there are even more reasons to end use and begin a drug-free life.

“I Am Not Addicted to Percodan”

It’s hard to get help for an addiction you don’t have, right? Denial can be a major stumbling block to quitting Percodan. If you or someone you know has the following signs of a Percodan addiction, it is time to get help:

  • Tolerance/dependence
  • “Doctor shopping” to obtain multiple prescriptions
  • Hoarding, stockpiling or stashing pills
  • Lying, deceitful behavior
  • Changing social circles
  • Mood swings/behavior changes
  • Experiencing overdoses/withdrawal symptoms

“I Am Embarrassed to Admit Percodan Addiction”

Prescribed to treat moderate to severe pain, Percodan use may begin after an injury or surgery before developing into an addiction. Even if used recreationally, the gradual progression of addiction can be hard to catch, leaving the user surprised by Percodan, a drug they had no intention of becoming addicted to. The unintentional nature of Percodan addiction means that many users feel guilt or shame about their addiction. The sooner you reach out for help, the sooner you can get support, get clean and stay clean.

“I Am Afraid of Percodan Rehabilitation”

Percodan rehab is nothing to be afraid of. Rehab is staffed by caring and understanding professionals who prioritize your comfort, health and recovery. Staff and patients will support your journey and help celebrate your successes.

Reasons to Quit Percodan

One reason to end Percodan use is that the loved ones of a user are also affected by addiction. Your loved ones want and need the sober you. Another reason to quit Percodan is for your health. The physical effects of Percodan use may include the following:

  • Gastrointestinal ulcers
  • Stomach bleeding
  • Prolonged bleeding
  • Shallow breathing
  • Circulatory collapse
  • Low heart rate
  • Low blood pressure
  • Death

The non-physical aspects of addiction can be just as debilitating, however. Changes in mood and behavior occur, and users often lose close relationships and cannot maintain employment. This contributes to financial struggles which are exacerbated by the high cost of addiction. “Doctor shopping,” or going from provider to provider in order to obtain more prescriptions, adds up as does purchasing Percodan illegally.
