Hydrocodone/Norco Addiction and Treatment
The Hydrocodone addiction recovery program at Chapters Capistrano is dedicated to treating addicts with personalized treatment programs. We recognize that no addict is affected the same, so no program should be the same.
The naturally-occurring opiates codeine and thebaine are often manufactured to form the synthetic opioid Hydrocodone. When the drug is combined with other non-opioid compounds such as Norco, also known as acetaminophen, serious psychological and physical dependence can occur.
At times, doctors effectively prescribe Hydrocodone and Norco, central nervous system depressants, for pain relief. However, when not under a doctor’s care, using these drugs can very dangerous.
Effects of Hydrocodone/Norco Abuse
If using Hydrocodone and Norco for prolonged time periods, physical and mental health problems may include, but are not limited to, dizziness, itching, drowsiness, lightheadedness, nausea, vomiting, and sweating. When an abuser develops a dependency, an increased dosage will be necessary for the desired effect. Also, mixing Hydrocodone with alcohol, benzodiazepines, cocaine, or other medications can be fatal. Some adverse reactions are heart failure, heart attack, respiratory distress, and liver or kidney failure.
