If you see the signs of addiction to oxycodone in yourself or in someone else, know that there is hope of recovery. Supervised detox, rehab and an individualized treatment plan that includes therapy and medical care can be effective in treating this condition and in minimizing the risk of a future relapse.
Detox and withdrawal are the first steps in treatment for oxycodone addiction, and then the long and hard work begins. This includes going to rehab or participating in an intensive treatment program on an outpatient basis. Both types of care include therapy but also important medical treatment.
Opioid use disorder is one of the few types of addiction that can be managed effectively with approved medications as part of the treatment plan. Two drugs are approved to help manage withdrawal, reduce cravings and prevent relapse in people struggling with opioid addiction: buprenorphine and methadone. These can also be used as maintenance therapy.
Another medication approved for oxycodone addiction is naltrexone. This drug can be injected and lasts for 30 days at a time. It blocks opioid receptors so that if you try to use a drug like oxycodone, you’ll get no effects from it. Naltrexone is effective at preventing relapses when used correctly.
These medications are only intended to be used along with ongoing therapy and other types of treatment. If you go through a rehab program, you can expect it to center on behavioral therapies. Working with a therapist, you will learn how to change your behaviors, take steps to live a healthier lifestyle, as well as identify and avoid triggers and prevent relapse once you leave rehab.
In addition to behavioral therapies, you can expect to have access to a wide range of services and support when in rehab. These may include nutrition and diet education, exercise, mindfulness training, group support, family therapy, recreation opportunities, alternative and creative therapies, and other support services like job training or finding affordable and safe housing.
