Vicodin Addiction and Treatment

Chapters Capistrano is a premier Vicodin addiction treatment center. The addiction experts at Chapters have created a highly personalized treatment program for individuals addicted to Vicodin. Each case of Vicodin dependence is unique and requires a specialized approach to ensure success and allow an addict to achieve freedom from drug dependency.

General Information

Vicodin is a schedule III drug in the U.S. and is one of the trade names for the combination of hydrocodone and paracetamol.  It is used to relieve moderate to severe pain.  Recreational users abuse Vicodin to achieve a euphoric feeling.

Effects of Vicodin Use

When used for medicinal purposes, common side effects include nausea, lightheadedness, and in some instances, more severe health reactions. Vicodin can also have a depressant effect on the central nervous system. As with any prescription drug, exceeding the recommended dosage can have significant implications. Mixing Vicodin with other drugs or alcohol can have catastrophic repercussions on the health and mental well-being of the abuser. Vicodin can significantly impact the addict’s relationships with family and friends, and their business interactions.

Vicodin Detoxification Withdrawal Doesn’t Have To Be Painful

At Chapters, we understand that most people are anxious about the idea of going through Vicodin withdrawal and this keeps them using the drug.   We recognize that withdrawal can be uncomfortable, but it doesn’t have to be.

Through the Vicodin rehab program at Chapters, our process engages the most traditional and safe form of withdrawal from using Vicodin, which is a drug-specific detox. Clients receive mild prescription medication under medical supervision that reduces the risk of seizure and eases withdrawal symptoms. These medications generally are prescribed in tapering amounts until the body is physically stabilized.

Chapters Capistrano recognizes the unique challenges presented by Vicodin addiction.  Contact Chapters today to learn more about our personalized Vicodin rehab program. Beat Vicodin addiction and enjoy sober living, call our 24 hour helpline at 949-371-4198 or email today.
