Proudly serving Indiana, our Methadone clinics provide adults struggling with addiction the ability to recover from Fentanyl, heroin, oxycodone, and other opiates.

Understanding Oxycontin Abuse

Understanding OxyContin Abuse Recovery

In recent years, the abuse of OxyContin and other prescription drugs has become unfortunately prevalent in the United States. OxyContin, which is the brand name for a timed-release version of the opioid oxycodone, is a semi-synthetic medication that is primarily prescribed to treat pain. As is also the case with heroin and other opioids that are derived from the poppy plant, oxycodone has a powerful effect on the body, and can be highly addictive. Individuals who abuse OxyContin (either for recreational purposes or for off-label or otherwise unauthorized attempts at self-medication) run the risk of developing tolerance and dependency.

It can be both difficult and painful to stop using OxyContin once a person has become addicted to this substance. However, medication assisted treatment programs such as those offered at Indiana Comprehensive Treatment Centers have helped thousands of formerly addicted individuals overcome their OxyContin dependence.

Types of Treatment Offered

Types of Treatment Offered for OxyContin Abuse at Indiana Comprehensive Treatment Centers

Indiana Comprehensive Treatment Centers provides outpatient medication assisted treatment for adult men and women, aged 18 and older, who have become addicted to OxyContin, oxycodone, or other opioids. Treatment at these programs will likely involve the use of medication such as methadone, Suboxone, Subutex, or Vivitrol; individual and group therapy; and other services as needed. Treatment plans are customized to meet the unique needs of each client, and services are provided by doctors, nurses, counselors, and other qualified personnel.

The following are among the many treatment options that are available at Indiana Comprehensive Treatment Centers:

Methadone: From the time it was introduced in the late 1960s through the early 2000s, methadone was the only medication that was approved for use in opiate addiction treatment programs. Over more than four decades, considerable research has documented the safety and effectiveness of methadone when used as directed under the supervision of a qualified healthcare provider. Methadone interacts with the same receptors in the brain that are activated by OxyContin and other opioids, but does not produce the euphoric high that is associated with these substances. Thus, methadone clients can work, go to school, drive a car, and otherwise participate in life without being high or experiencing drug cravings or withdrawal symptoms.

Suboxone: In 2002, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Suboxone for use in approved medication assisted opiate addiction treatment programs. Like methadone, Suboxone suppresses drug cravings and fends off withdrawal symptoms without causing the client to experience an opioid-related high. Suboxone is the brand name of a medication that contains a mixture of two substances, buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine provides relief from cravings and withdrawal symptoms, while naloxone protects against abuse and overdose.

Subutex: Subutex was also approved by the FDA in 2002. Like Suboxone, Subutex contains buprenorphine, which provides relief from opiate cravings and withdrawal symptoms without causing a disorienting high. Unlike Suboxone, Subutex does not contain naloxone. In many medication assisted treatment programs, clients start off on Subutex, then transition to Suboxone for long-term maintenance.

Vivitrol: Unlike methadone, Suboxone, and Subutex, which are all taken via daily oral doses, Vivitrol is a longer-lasting medication that is administered once per month via injection. The primary active ingredient in Vivitrol is naltrexone hydrochloride, which prevents clients from experiencing drug cravings and also suppresses painful symptoms of opioid withdrawal.

Individual therapy: Therapy is a regular and essential component of an effective medication assisted opioid treatment program. While the medication provides mental clarity and cognitive relief by relieving the physical symptoms of addiction, therapy plays the important role of addressing the psychological, behavioral, and emotional issues that may have either led to a person’s OxyContin abuse or been affected by it. At Indiana Comprehensive Treatment Centers, we place a strong emphasis on providing superior individual therapy services to our clients.

Group therapy: In addition to the one-on-one feedback that clients will receive during individual therapy, group therapy provides crucial interpersonal interactions in a supervised therapeutic environment. By participating in group discussions with others who are experiencing similar issues, clients can make significant therapeutic progress while both receiving and providing personal insights and support. At Indiana Comprehensive Treatment Centers, group therapy is led by counselors who are skilled in providing structured sessions in a manner that ensures they are safe and productive experiences for all participants.

Why Consider Treatment

Why Consider Indiana Comprehensive Treatment Centers for Oxycontin Abuse

OxyContin abuse is not a matter to be treated lightly. OxyContin is a powerful medication that, when used without proper medical supervision, can have a devastating impact on a person’s physical and emotional wellbeing. And when OxyContin abuse develops into addiction, the risks multiply – as does the difficulty of stopping.

OxyContin abuse can erode the effectiveness of a person’s immune system, thus exposing him or her to significant health problems. Other damages associated with long-term OxyContin abuse include mood disorders, sexual problems, sleep problems, respiratory distress, and problems with the central nervous system. Even in the short term, OxyContin abuse can cause nausea, constipation, rash, slowed breathing, swelling of the throat, and other problems. And the risk of fatal overdose is always present.

On the bright side, effective treatment is within your reach. At Indiana Comprehensive Treatment Centers, experienced and dedicated experts are ready to help you overcome your addiction and resume a healthier and happier life, freed from dependence upon OxyContin.
