When taken outside the recommendations given by a physician and for recreational use, Roxicodone elicits feelings of euphoria and relaxation. Should a chemical dependency concern of this kind develop and result in addiction, a person will have a great deal of difficulty trying to overcome it alone.

Types of Treatment Offered at Indiana Comprehensive Treatment Centers

Indiana Comprehensive Treatment Centers are a network of outpatient providers that offer an array of medically supervised medication assisted treatment options for those who wish to overcome an addiction to or dependence upon opioids, such as Roxicodone. Men and women, aged 18 and older, who have been abusing Roxicodone or other opioids for one year or more can partake in our services. Our experienced and professional staff is comprised of doctors, nurses, and counselors who work with clients to determine the most appropriate dosage of any medication prescribed and any additional therapeutic interventions that will further the recovery process.

The medications and therapeutic interventions that could be part of a client’s treatment can include the following:

Methadone: A medication that prevents cravings and the withdrawal symptoms that are known to occur after a person ceases his or her use of Roxicodone is methadone. Those prescribed methadone will not experience the high that occurs when a person consumes a prescription painkiller, as methadone is an opioid agonist. The dosage of this medication, which is taken daily, is determined based on each client’s needs and will likely be decreased over time in order to wean the individual off of it so that true sobriety can be achieved.     

Suboxone: Containing buprenorphine and naloxone, Suboxone reduces cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Unlike other medication assisted treatments, this medication can also trigger symptoms of withdrawal should an individual attempt to abuse an opioid, such as Roxicodone, while receiving this type of medication assisted treatment. Suboxone is typically consumed daily and the dosage will be determined based on the treatment needs of the individual.

Subutex: Comprised of buprenorphine as the active ingredient, Subutex lessens cravings and diminishes withdrawal symptoms by blocking the harmful effects of Roxicodone and other opioids within an individual’s brain. Subutex is classified as a partial opioid agonist-antagonist, meaning the effects of consuming an opioid are blocked, yet the withdrawal symptoms are decreased in order to allow a person to work on his or her recovery. Daily consumption of this medication is part of this type of treatment and the amount taken each day is recommended by one of our highly-qualified doctors.

Vivitrol: A non-narcotic, non-addictive medication assisted treatment option is Vivitrol. This medication is one that is injected into an individual to reduce cravings for Roxicodone and other opioids. Naltrexone is the active ingredient and this treatment option is one that is typically administered once per month.

Individual and group therapy: In order to enhance the effectiveness of the medication assisted treatments we offer, Indiana Comprehensive Treatment Centers incorporate individual and group therapy sessions into the treatments available. Individual therapy sessions occur one-on-one with a counselor and can be a time when clients process their feelings and emotions with regards to their own recovery. Group therapy sessions are also conducted by counselors and can feature a wide range of topics covered. Other clients participate in group therapy sessions so that the men and women receiving treatment at our centers can feel a strong sense of support and encouragement from others who have endured similar struggles.      

Why Consider Treatment with Indiana Comprehensive Treatment Centers

Attempting to combat an addiction of this kind without the help of knowledgeable professionals can ultimately lead a person further into the trenches of addiction.

Long-term abuse of Roxicodone can result in several cumbersome obstacles in a person’s life. Financial difficulties as a result of job loss or squandering money to support an addiction to Roxicodone are common among individuals addicted to this substance. Furthermore, conflict within interpersonal and meaningful relationships is also a frequent occurrence when a person abuses this pain reliever, as loved ones’ concerns for the person they care about fall upon seemingly deaf ears. Interaction with law enforcement and the legal system is also likely to happen as individuals addicted to Roxicodone often break the law or engage in risky behaviors in order to attain more of this substance.

The physical and mental health of those addicted to Roxicodone are also negatively impacted. When a person is battling a mental health condition and abuses this medication, it is likely that that person will experience a greater decline in his or her overall mental health.
