How to Find the Best Oxycodone Detox
Choosing a Withdrawal Treatment
It is essential that a successful Oxycodone detox starts with a medical withdrawal treatment. In fact, the initial period in any opioid detox can be quite intense. For this reason, choosing an inpatient hospital treatment can provide the adequate support you need to get through a detox successfully. Furthermore, having physician management during an acute withdrawal is probably the safest option.
Withdrawal symptoms can escalate and lead to complications which may require immediate medical attention. Consequently, if you are concerned about comfort, safety, and success, enrollment in a hospital-based 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, lowering the risk of relapse.
- Oxycodone is 150% more potent than Morphine.
- It is usually prescribed intended moderate-to-severe pain that requires continues management.
- It is not meant for an “as needed” basis or for short term pain.
- Oxycodone is available in extended-release tablets.
This powerful prescription painkiller works, by activating opioid receptors and dopamine levels. The result of this activation is an immediate change in pain perception, while also producing euphoric feelings.
After a short amount of time, the body becomes accustomed to the constant stimulation and altered chemical messaging, due to the consistent presence of opioids. When someone suddenly quits oxycodone, the central nervous system is sent into a tailspin and withdrawal symptoms is likely to occur.
Multiple physical and emotional side effects accompany an oxycodone withdrawal. It is not a good idea to stop taking opioids “cold turkey,” or without the assistance of a medical professional. Although most people fear withdrawal symptoms due to pain, there are also some critical health risks.
Typical symptoms of Oxycodone withdrawal can include:
- Joint and muscle pain
- A runny nose
- Nausea and vomiting
- Severe cramping
In the past, health care professionals mistakenly referred to Opioid withdrawal as a not deadly condition. However, more recent and accurate studies show the potentially fatal consequences of unsupervised detox. Mainly due to apparently minor symptoms such as vomiting and diarrhea. Although vomiting and diarrhea might not seem to be a significant issue, it can quickly lead to dehydration. If left untreated, dehydration can raise sodium levels , leading to seizures or even heart failure. That is why adequate medical supervision throughout an oxycodone detox is not just wise, but necessary.

Rapid Oxycodone Detox
Many oxycodone users are just not able to quit cold turkey. Likewise, if they have developed a severe dependence or addiction, they may not be ready to stop using the drug. 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 like Oxycodone or Percocet. With this approach, patients run the risk of developing a dependency on these replacements. In many cases, a second detox is required for the replacement drugs.

Oxycodone Detox, Rapid Detox and Addiction Treatment
Medical Supervision throughout an Opioid Detox
Patients are admitted to a private room in an accredited hospital at least one day before any anesthesia detox procedure. At the hospital, a medical team will perform a comprehensive medical evaluation. This evaluation often includes medical and dependency history, blood work, assessment of kidney and liver function. Also, patients receive a pulmonary X-ray, electrocardiogram and may undergo a stress test, if necessary. Finally, medications are given to prevent and relieve the symptoms of opiate withdrawal.
Furthermore, not all patients are a candidate for rapid detox. In this case, the medical director will discuss additional options for Oxycodone detox. If Rapid Detox is the chosen treatment detox method, staff will transfer patients on the 2nd day to their private ICU room. In the ICU, they receive individual monitoring and various pre-medications. These are followed by a period of sedation for around 30 to 90 minutes. Acceleration of the acute opiate withdrawal occurs while the patient sleeps. Our multi board-certified anesthesiologist controls and 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 superior level of medical care, nearly 100% of our patients become opioid-free.
Preventing an Opioid Relapse
Long Term Recovery
Typically, patients continue to recover in the hospital, the morning after rapid detox. They receive additional intravenous fluids to regain strength. Also, the staff encourages patients to get out of bed, walk, and resume regular eating. During this period, physicians assess patient’s readiness for discharge to our private recovery center, Domus Retreat.
At the recovery center, we begin to address the emotional health of our patients. The staff continues to supervise the physical transition. 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 continuous care provides additional comfort throughout the adjustment phase, while also preventing complications and immediate relapse.
