Hydrocodone/Norco Addiction and Treatment
The Chapters Capistrano’s premier rehab program for Hydrocodone addiction knows how important personalized treatment is. Hydrocodone addiction affects all clients differently, so no treatment process is exactly the same. We at Chapters are here to ensure an addict’s recovery and return to sober living!
Hydrocodone is a drug derived from two naturally-occurring opiates—codeine and thebaine. The synthetic opioid is then typically mixed with other non-opioid compounds such as Norco, known as acetaminophen. The combination of Hydrocodone and Norco can lead to serious psychological and physical dependence.
Central nervous system depressants, Hydrocodone and Norco are for pain relief. When monitored by a doctor, taking the drugs can be safe. However, when Hydrocodone and Norco are taken without a doctor’s care at increased amounts for prolonged periods of time, a person’s health can be at risk.
Effects of Hydrocodone/Norco Abuse
Unsupervised use of Hydrocodone and Norco can result in physical and mental health side effects, including dizziness, itching, drowsiness, lightheadedness, nausea, vomiting, and sweating. When an abuser develops dependency on the drug, consumption must increase to recreate the desired effect. Mixing Hydrocodone with alcohol, benzodiazepines, cocaine, or other medications is a potentially lethal risk. Adverse reactions include heart failure, heart attack, respiratory distress, and liver or kidney failure.
Hydrocodone/Norco Detoxification Doesn’t Have To Be Painful
Our addiction experts understand that many abusers avoid checking into a rehab facility because withdrawal can be uncomfortable. We are dedicated to making withdrawal as painless as possible! At Chapters, we use a drug-specific detox. The client is treated with prescription medication under medical supervision to lessen the risk of seizure and ease withdrawal. The client receives such medication until the body is physically stabilized.
The drug and alcohol rehab center at Chapters Capistrano is here to help you attain a sober lifestyle. Your journey starts today! Call our 24-hour helpline at 949-371-4198 for further information about Hydrocodone addiction recovery.
