Vicodin Addiction and Treatment

Chapters Capistrano in Southern California is a leader in drug and alcohol rehabilitation for Vicodin drug addiction recovery. Because no person experiences Vicodin dependency the exact same, no treatment program is the same. Chapters addiction experts are trained to make sure your recovery is successful!

General Information

The combination of paracetamol and hydrocodone is the pharmaceutical-branded drug Vicodin. As a Schedule III drug in the United States, Vicodin can be prescribed for medicinal reasons as a pain reliever. However those who abuse the drug and take it recreationally do so to achieve a euphoric high.

Effects of Vicodin Use

While side effects of using Vicodin may include nausea, and lightheadedness, in some cases, more serious reactions may result. The drug may have the effect of depressing the body’s central nervous system. Moreover, if an addict mixes Vicodin with other drugs or exceeds the medically-prescribed dose, implications on the person’s physical, mental, and social health can be serious.

Vicodin Detoxification Withdrawal Doesn’t Have to be Painful

The drug rehab program team at Chapters doesn’t want anxiety about withdrawing from Vicodin to stop clients from seeking necessary treatment. In order for withdrawal to be as safe and comfortable for our clients, Chapters uses a drug-specific detox. Clients take prescription medication to lower the chance of seizure and ease withdrawal symptoms. Our clients are closely monitored and continue medication until the body is physically stabilized.

Vicodin drug addiction recovery can be difficult. We at Chapters Capistrano make our treatment plans specific to your needs so you recover, guaranteed! Pick up the phone and call our drug and alcohol rehab center’s 24-hour helpline at 949-371-4198. Your journey to live a sober life starts today!
