Finding the Right Oxycodone Detox and Withdrawal Treatment
It’s important to note that a successful Oxycodone detox starts with a medical withdrawal treatment. In fact, the initial period of an Oxycodone detox can be quite intense, and being in a hospital can provide the adequate support you need. Furthermore, detoxing from any opioids in a medical facility is always the safest option. Withdrawal symptoms can escalate and lead to complications which may require immediate medical attention. For this reason, if you are concerned about comfort, safety, and success, enrollment in a hospital Oxycodone detox is your wisest choice. A hospital provides patients with 24-hour medical assistance, ongoing medical monitoring, and vital signs management.
An inpatient medical detox can help achieve total abstinence, which potentially can prevent the result of a tragic relapse.

Oxycodone is the active opioid ingredient used in prescription painkillers such as OxyContin and Percocet. This powerful narcotic is a controlled substance and can be habit-forming. In fact, scary statistics have shown that nearly 20 percent of the adult population in the US has abused prescription medication.
Thousands of physicians throughout the country, prescribe Oxycodone pills for a number of different pain issues. NIDA ( National Institute on Drug Abuse) estimates that nearly 20 percent of adults in the USA are presently abusing or have abused prescription medication in the past. According to additional research, the most commonly abused prescription drugs are Oxycodone and Hydrocodone.
In light of this data, we want to encourage each and every one of you to help by raising awareness about how dangerous and addictive prescription painkillers can be. We also need to fight for the availability of effective drug treatment programs for those already in need.
How does it work?
Oxycodone blocks the pain receptors while altering the levels of dopamine in the brain which produces euphoric feelings. As a result, this temporary sense of relaxation and well-being can quickly become addicting. Other physiological responses can be present as the opioid receptors and the central nervous system are activated. For instance, the most common changes include slowed respiration and heart rate, changes in body temperature and blood pressure.
The brain expects more and more Oxycodone once it gets used to the continued stimulation of the opioid receptors. Therefore, tolerance will occur and consequently physical dependence. At this point, a chemical dysregulation is imminent and any attempt to stop the drug use may cause withdrawal symptoms. Also, both physical and psychological side effects are part of a withdrawal syndrome. So, most providers do not recommend a patient to stop taking oxycodone (Oxys) “cold turkey,” without first consulting a qualified medical professional.
Oxycodone Detox and Withdrawal Symptoms
The timeline and severity of the withdrawal symptoms can depend on a number of factors, including:
- Method of use
- Length of dependence
- Individual’s emotional and physical capacity for discomfort and much more.
Most people describe Oxycodone withdrawal as having the nasty flu. In other words, an individual usually experiences intense body aches, nausea, stomach cramps, chills, sometimes fever, sweating, vomiting, diarrhea, and tremors. Some people may also yawn and sneeze uncontrollably. Although side effects of opioid withdrawal are not usually fatal for healthy and young individuals, they are tough to overcome. Yet, it is essential to know that complications related to high blood pressure, irregular heart rate, and trouble breathing can cause unforeseen and dangerous complications.
The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) estimates that nearly 15,000 people die each year in the US, as the result of a prescription pain reliever overdose.

Some of the most common oxycodone withdrawal symptoms are:
- Abdominal cramping
- Difficulties regulating temperature
- Muscle aches
- Yawning for no apparent reason
- Excessive tearing
- Dilated pupils
- Irregular heart rate
- Increased blood pressure
- A runny nose

Opioid withdrawal can be very uncomfortable and hard to overcome. Additionally, combining Oxycodone drugs, such as Percocet and Oxycontin, with substances that are central nervous system depressants like alcohol, can significantly increase the severity of any and all risk factors.

Our doctors, therapists, and staff work with patients to create personalized treatment and aftercare plans designed to ensure a healthy and active transition to daily life without opiates.
Rapid Detox Treatment
Many oxycodone users are just not able to quit cold turkey. They might be finding reasons and excuses to put off detoxing. However, the reality is if they were capable of doing so, they would have done so already.
Other centers use various treatment approaches, including opiate “replacement” or “substitution” therapy. This form of treatment uses drugs such as Suboxone and methadone to help patients lessen their use of more potent drugs such as Oxycodone or Percocet. With this approach, patients also run the risk of developing a dependency to these replacements and eventually needing a second detox.
WAISMANN METHOD® patients achieve an extraordinarily high success rate of Oxycodone detox because our team of professionals assesses and performs treatments that are most appropriate for each unique patient, rather than administering the same treatment to everyone. Furthermore, we create detoxification and recovery programs that best fit each patient based on individual needs and dependence histories.

When looking for an oxycodone detox program, patients should make sure the treatment is in a medical facility, with experienced doctors and in the privacy of a single patient room.
Benefits of a Medical Oxycodone Detox and Addiction Treatment
Patients are admitted to a private room of an accredited hospital at least one day before any anesthesia detox procedure. Then, our professionals perform a thorough medical evaluation including medical history, physical exam, and blood work to evaluate kidney and liver function. Also, patients have a chest X-ray, an electrocardiogram and may undergo an exercise stress test, if necessary. Finally, patients receive a combination of medications to prevent or relieve the symptoms of withdrawal, lower the acid content of the stomach and curb the adrenaline or adrenergic response to withdrawal.
Not all patients are a candidate for rapid detox. The medical director can discuss additional options for Oxycodone detox. If Rapid Detox is the chosen detox, staff will transfer patients to their private ICU room. In the ICU they receive individual monitoring and also pre-medications followed by sedation, for around 30 to 90 minutes. An acute opiate withdrawal is accelerated while the patient sleeps comfortably. Our board-certified anesthesiologist controls and closely monitors the medically-induced Oxycodone detox. ICU staff continuously care for patients for the rest of the day and night. As a result of this comprehensive care, patients receive individualized attention from detox, into recovery and beyond.
Preventing an Opioid Relapse
Usually, the morning after the rapid detox procedure patients continue to recover, receive intravenous fluids and regain strength. Also, the staff encourages patients to get out of bed, walk, and resume eating regularly. During this period, physicians assess the patient’s readiness for discharge to our private recovery center.
At the recovery center, we work with the emotional health of our patients, while the staff supervises the physical transition. Not to mention that opioid dependency causes numerous changes in brain chemistry and organ functions. Therefore, after the procedure, it is paramount that professionals appropriately monitor patients for at least a few days. This continuos care provides a more natural adjustment phase while preventing medical complications and immediate relapse.
Waismann Method ® treatment is proud to say that we have one of the highest success rate and safety standards of any Oxycodone detox treatment in the country. In conclusion, thousands of patients from all over the world have successfully become opioid-free with our program exclusively located in Southern California.
