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 it mainly to achieve a euphoric feeling.

Effects of 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 it with other drugs or alcohol can have catastrophic repercussions on the health and mental well-being of the abuser. This drug can significantly impact the addict’s relationships with family and friends, and their business interactions.

Detoxification Withdrawal Doesn’t Have To Be Painful

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

Through the rehab program at Chapters, our process engages the most traditional and safe form of withdrawal from using, 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 addiction and the struggles that are associated with it.
