Percodan Treatment Therapy

The initial phase of treatment and then onto recovery is detox. It is the most difficult stage as relapse has a higher chance of occurring during this time. Many believe that using the drug will cure the symptoms and ease the pain of detox.  Detox is basically a process wherein the individual rids their bodies of the substance that they are addicted to. As the process beings, a person will encounter the consequences of their addiction physically, mentally, and emotionally as well as experience the withdrawal symptoms almost immediately. The symptoms of this process can include the following:

  • Feeling clammy and sweating heavily
  • Erratic behavior or mood swings which can turn violent
  • Insomnia and other sleep disorders
  • Fatigue or feeling physically drained
  • Hallucinations or delusional visions
  • Anxiety and behavioral issues

Percodan Detox Dangers

Due to the intensity detox can induce for an individual, some believe they can and will endure the process on their own. It can be a scary process to go through and the attempt to “white knuckle” it or go cold turkey, can be dangerous. Attempting to overcome addiction by sheer willpower could produce even more harmful affects rather than seeking the help needed. Admitting help is needed due to an addiction isn’t a weakness or character defect. Trying to overpower a Percodan addiction with a strong emotional desire to stick it out doesn’t make the physical cravings go away. Add to it the withdrawal symptoms and the chance of relapse or harming oneself increases.

Addiction has very real emotional and mental issues surrounding the addiction that must be healed to break the cycle of. There are medical risks, including death in extreme cases. You can easily set up a patient for disappointment and even relapse by promising a quick fix instead of the truly hard work that overcoming an addiction takes.
