Vicodin Treatment & Rehab

Vicodin Treatment & RehabSuccessfully completing detox does not mean that you are cured of an addiction to Vicodin. Most people who only go through detox and who don’t receive ongoing support will relapse. You need to enroll in some type of rehab and treatment plan for an individualized plan that will help you maintain sobriety for the long-term.

Treatment for Vicodin addiction revolves around therapy and medical care. There are three approved prescription medications that can help you resist cravings for opioids and reduce the risk of relapse. Methadone and buprenorphine are often used for maintenance treatment, helping you manage withdrawal and cravings as you receive ongoing treatment. Or, you may be given naltrexone to block the effects of opioids like Vicodin to prevent you from relapsing.

Medically Supervised Vicodin Treatment

After detox, a rehab facility can help you develop a treatment plan that takes into account your individual needs. Treatment for addiction to Vicodin and other opioids typically includes therapy and medical treatment. There are a few prescription drugs that have been approved to treat opioid use disorder:1

  • Methadone is a maintenance opioid that has been used for a long time, mostly to treat heroin addiction. It may help you manage withdrawal and cravings as you go through treatment.
  • Buprenorphine is similar to methadone. It activates the same receptors as Vicodin but to a lesser degree so that it can reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms.
  • Naltrexone is a drug that blocks opioid receptors. When on it, any use of an opioid will not produce any effects. You may be given a long-acting shot of this drug to help you avoid relapsing on Vicodin.

In addition to medical treatment, expect to participate in therapy sessions, both individual and group. Behavioral therapies one-on-one with an addiction specialist will help you manage cravings, identify and avoid triggers to prevent relapse, set and achieve goals, and make positive, healthy lifestyle changes for your future.

Other types of therapy and services you may have access to in rehab for Vicodin addiction include creative therapies with music or art, recreation and adventure experiences and therapies, family and group support, specific programs for relapse prevention training, health and nutrition education, exercise, mindfulness exercises, and relaxation techniques.
