Hydrocodone Addiction Treatment

Steps Recovery Center recognizes how vital the mind, body, and spirit are in their connection to the whole person. We take a holistic approach to treating drug addiction that includes treating the whole person, and find that it tends to be more successful, especially since drug addiction affects every aspect of a person’s life. With a customized and individualized program, a holistic approach just makes sense. It affords an opportunity to meet the patient’s physical and psychological needs and allows them to engage physically, emotionally, and mentally.

Take That First Step

What is Hydrocodone?

Hydrocodone is a general opioid pain reliever that includes many brands of medication like Vicodin, Lortab, Lorcet, and Norco. It is prescribed for moderate to severe pain and can be highly addictive if used longer than needed. Hydrocodone is the most commonly abused prescription opioid, with nearly 2 million people ages 12 and up abusing it, as of 2014.

Statistics on Hydrocodone

Published by the American Society of Addiction Medicine, several statistics show that prescription opioid abuse is rampant in the U.S. Some of these stats includes:

  • As estimated 21.5 million people age 12 and up experienced a substance abuse disorder, with 1.9 million abusing prescription pain relievers, including hydrocodone.
  • Out of the 586,000 heroin abusers in 2014, 94 percent desired to use prescription opioids but chose heroin because it was less costly and easier to obtain.  
  • In 2014, 47,000 drug overdoses occurred in the U.S., of which 18,893 involved prescription opioid pills. 
  • In 2012, Americans prescribed 260 million opioid pain reliever medication.
  • Four out of five people who started with opioid pain abuse went on to abuse heroin.

Withdrawal Symptoms of Hydrocodone

When someone stops taking hydrocodone, there are possible withdrawal symptoms that include:

  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Cravings
  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Flu-like symptoms like fever and runny nose
  • Depersonalization
  • Mood swings
  • Appetite change
  • Sweating
  • Irritability
  • Dilated pupils
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Suicidal thoughts

Not everyone will experience all of these symptoms. Still, they can be quite uncomfortable and even painful, so to help mitigate them, doctors may prescribe medication to help, which is called medically-assisted treatment. 

Hydrocodone Addiction Treatment Center

There are several treatment programs for individuals who seek treatment in a residential treatment center: detox, residential treatment, which is also called inpatient treatment and can be short or long-term, hospital-based residential treatment, partial hospitalization (more intensive than outpatient care but a step below residential treatment), opioid maintenance, and extended care. Depending on the severity of the addiction, a residential treatment center may recommend specific treatment methods.

When a person enters a rehab center, the addiction team will customize a treatment plan that includes individual therapy, and even group therapy if the person feels comfortable. The team will comprise of nurses, counselors, psychologists, nutritionists, and the like with holistic methods including yoga, mindfulness, reiki, or other stress-reducing techniques. 

There will also be an option for aftercare to help prevent relapse, such as ongoing individual therapy, group therapy meetings, getting regular checkups, including drug tests, and other types of aftercare relevant to the person’s situation.

The staff and facility is amazing- Couldn’t ask for anything better. The program is well rounded with rec activities, equine therapy, gender therapy, group therapy, individual and couples therapy, and also attends various 12 Step support groups such as AA or NA. They also have family therapy and processing with options for individual settings or in a group. These help families understand what their loved ones who suffer from addiction is going through and how to support them, and also gives them their own support system.

This place saved my life! The therapists were very helpful, friendly and really cared about the clients wellbeing. The tech’s were alway helpful with meds and anything that was needed. House manager was amazing, had high expectations on job duties, and kept a very clean organized atmosphere. Food was always amazing. I never went hungry! The information and skills that I have learned and applied to my life are priceless. If you’re not willing to put forth the work to change your life this is not your place, but if you are this is the first Step to take. I Love everyone at Steps. Thank you for all your help

I’d been to other recovery centers before but this one was the best, it stuck because I was willing to do the work, and with the help I received from staff I am now celebrating a year of sobriety in a couple of days. Update; I’m now 18 months sober as of yesterday and I still keep in touch with my steps family. The lessons I learned at steps will stick with me for the rest of my life. Thank you for giving me my life back.
