Oxymorphone Treatment

Table of Contents

Treating an oxymorphone dependence can be difficult if the patient is not closely monitored and withdrawal symptoms are not managed effectively.
Many treatment options are available to address an addiction to prescription painkillers including oxymorphone. This narcotic analgesic is potent and can lead to tolerance, physical and psychological dependence, overdose, withdrawal and the need for detox. This is an essential first step in the treatment process as the drugs must first be removed from the body in order for patients to move forward.
Some treatment programs target the physical aspects of oxymorphone addiction and others focus on behavioral changes and the psychological aspect. A responsible drug treatment program will address both.
The Waismann Method of rapid detox offers safe, effective oxymorphone detox that is quick and humane. Our approach to ridding patients of their dependence is thorough. We also offer an additional aftercare program that helps patients explore possible underlying issues and work toward sustained recovery.
Treatment for oxymorphone addiction is necessary if you feel your use of the drug has become uncontrollable or if its use is negatively impacting your life.

Responsible and Safe Oxymorphone Treatment Should Be Medically Based

Oxymorphone is the generic name for drugs including Opana. It’s meant to treat moderate to severe pain. The main goal of any drug detox or rehabilitation program is to restore health and provide freedom from addiction. In-patient and out-patient services are available. Many programs require a time commitment that is simply not feasible.
The Waismann Method can get you opiate-free within days so you can move on with your life. Because opiates have a high rate of associated relapse, medically-supervised treatment is often necessary. The medical management of the often-painful withdrawal phase can help guard against a relapse. Patients often delay getting treatment for oxymorphone addiction because of a fear of withdrawal.
These symptoms can include:

  • Fever
  • Severe drug cravings
  • Sweating
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Runny nose
  • Yawning
  • Restlessness
  • Weakness
  • Cramps
  • Diarrhea
  • Chills
  • Muscle and bone pain
  • Irritability
  • Agitation
  • Muscle twitching.

Knowing that these symptoms can be managed helps to put our clients’ minds at ease.
