Addiction to Hydrocodone

Hydrocodone/Norco Addiction and Treatment

Chapters Capistrano understands the importance of personalizing treatment for those seeking Hydrocodone addiction recovery. Since Hydrocodone addiction affects all clients differently, our staff has created rehabilitation programs catered to the individual. Our team is devoted to guiding addicts on their road to recovery and sober living!

General Information

Hydrocodone is a synthetic opioid constructed from the naturally-occurring opiates codeine and thebaine. Often, the drug is combined with other non-opioid compounds such as Norco, also known as acetaminophen. Serious psychological and physical dependence can occur when mixing Hydrocodone and Norco.

Because they are central nervous system depressants, generally these drugs are prescribed for pain relief. Under a doctor’s care, these drugs can be effectual. Although, not under doctor’s care, such drugs can cause great health risks.

Effects of Hydrocodone/Norco Abuse

Using Hydrocodone and Norco unsupervised for prolonged time periods can result in physical and mental health problems. Side effects include, but are not limited to, dizziness, itching, drowsiness, lightheadedness, nausea, vomiting, and sweating. As with most recreational drugs, developing a dependency will require an abuser to increase intake to achieve the desired effect. In addition, taking Hydrocodone with alcohol, benzodiazepines, cocaine, or other medications can be fatal. Heart failure, heart attack, respiratory distress, and liver or kidney failure are some adverse reactions.

Hydrocodone/Norco Detoxification Doesn’t Have To Be Painful

The addiction experts at Chapters rehab program recognize that withdrawal can be very uncomfortable and therefore may influence an addict to avoid treatment. Chapters is therefore committed to using the safest, most traditional drug-specific detox to make detoxification as comfortable as possible. Our clients are administered prescription medication under medical supervision. Such medication, given in tapering amounts, will lower the risk of seizure and ease withdrawal symptoms until the body is stabilized.
