Despite the benefits involved when taking oxycodone and oxycodone-based medications to alleviate pain, these substances are extremely habit-forming and can cause a person to become dependent on them if they are misused. For those who are prescribed oxycodone, adhering to a doctor’s recommendations is of the utmost importance in order to avoid developing a problem with this medication.
There are those, however, who consume more oxycodone more often than advised and find that they are unable to function without consuming this medication. The same issue also holds true for those who misuse oxycodone with the intent of achieving a mind- and mood-altering high. Once an addiction to oxycodone forms, being able to resist abusing this medication can seem impossible. Furthermore, the withdrawal symptoms that manifest in the absence of this painkiller can keep a person in a continuous pattern of oxycodone abuse that appears inescapable. However, when a person is ready to leave the abuse of this painkiller in the past, help is available. With proper treatment, a person can successfully defeat an oxycodone addiction and begin living a healthier, substance-free lifestyle.
Proper rehab and treatment are necessary for individuals who are addicted to oxycodone to be able to address the physical and psychological aspects of addiction. At Delta Medical Center, we understand addiction and we are ready to help you get your life back on track.
Why You Should Consider Inpatient Treatment for Oxycodone Addiction at Delta
Oxycodone and oxycodone-based medications have the ability to ravage every area of a person’s life if an addiction to these types of substances is present. The risk of overdose is a constant when an individual’s life is consumed by this substance, and the potential for severe organ damage is great. Additionally, it is quite possible for a person to experience the exacerbation or sudden onset of certain mental disorders, which could make defeating this sort of chemical dependency problem even rifer with challenges.
Yet another unfortunate effect of oxycodone abuse that many tend to overlook is the damage that can be done to a person’s career, relationships, and ability to live independently. An oxycodone addiction can cost an individual his or her career if he or she misses work or reports to work while under the influence. Meaningful connections with others, including friends and family members, could become tarnished if the abuse of this painkiller remains ongoing. And if oxycodone abuse remains a focal point in a person’s life, being able to take care of one’s self can become impossible. If, however, an individual wishes to break free from the misuse of oxycodone, effective addiction treatment services can be of great help in becoming sober once and for all.

Treatment Approaches We Use to Manage Oxycodone Addiction at Delta
When you come to us, you will undergo a complete medical and psychiatric examination to help us to determine how dependent upon oxycodone your body has become. We will also identify any co-occurring disorders and medical conditions you may be struggling with as well. This information will help us to work alongside you to develop a treatment plan that works to address all of your needs.
If you are physically dependent on oxycodone, it is likely that the first step in your rehab program will involve our medically managed detox program. As we know that detox can be quite a frightening prospect, we will do our best to explain everything we do before it happens so that there are no surprises. In our detox program, you will safely and effectively be detoxed from oxycodone and any other substances that you may have in your system. When you are medically stabilized, you will move into the next phase of your rehab.
Medication may be used at the beginning of your stay with us to help control the effects of withdrawal or to manage symptoms of a co-occurring disorder. Many people find that once they develop more effective coping mechanisms, they will be able to taper down the amount of medication they use. Other people who are struggling with co-occurring disorders may need longer-term therapeutic management. The usage of medication will be decided by your treatment team.
Individual therapy will be used in instances in which group therapy does not appropriately address your needs. You will work on problem-solving strategies for the challenges that you are facing in your life in a private environment.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of therapy that helps individuals with substance use concerns effectively challenge their negative patterns of thinking and replace them with more positive ways of viewing the world. This can help those who feel helpless to see things as they really are.
Group therapy is the primary therapeutic approach at Delta, as we have discovered that the best way of helping individuals recover from oxycodone addiction is to allow them to work together to work through difficult emotions and struggles. We offer both process-based and psychoeducational groups to help you process emotions surrounding your addiction and learn more about relapse prevention, coping skills, and triggers for using.
We aim to provide you and your loved ones with the opportunity to work together to discover ways in which addiction has impacted each member of your family. We will hold family sessions to educate your loved ones about your illness, recovery, and how best to support you during your healing process. We will also provide connections to community resources such as A.A and N.A.
In addition to traditional therapeutic treatments, we also offer a number of experiential treatments to best allow us to help heal the whole you – mind, body, and spirit. These may include:
- Recreational programs
- Therapeutic activities
- Nutritional counseling and wellness
- Spiritual counseling
Continuing Care – What Happens Next?
As your discharge nears, you will work together with your treatment team to determine the next steps in your recovery process. We understand that discharge from our inpatient rehab can be a scary time for you, which is why we are proud to offer a number of options for your continued care.
If you feel as though you are not ready to leave the structure of an inpatient setting, we can help find you a residential program to continue your healing. We also offer two step-down options for you. Our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) have proved to be a beneficial step-down from our inpatient treatment. If you feel you are ready to discharge into a stable home environment, we can provide you with appropriate referrals to outpatient therapy services and community resources.
