Oxycodone is a potent opiate analgesic that is used in prescription pain medications including OxyContin and Percocet. These powerful narcotics are considered controlled substances and can be habit forming and very dangerous. In fact this is a frightening statistic, but true. Every 19 minutes in the U.S. we lose a life to prescription drug overdose in the US. That’s approximately 75 deaths per day, 530 per week and 27,587 per year.
In light of this data, we want to encourage each and every one of you to help do your part to raise awareness about how dangerous and addictive prescription painkillers can be, as well as the need for effective treatment programs for those who may already be struggling with dependency.

Other Treatment Options for Oxycodone Dependence
Other centers uses treatment for addiction to Oxycodone, that can entail various approaches, including opiate “replacement” or “substitution” therapy. This is when drugs such as Suboxone and methadone are used to help patients lessen their use of more powerful drugs such as Oxycodone or Percocet. With this approach patients also run the risk of developing a dependency to these replacements and needing a second detox

It is crucial that patients who are planning to undergo Oxycodone rapid-detox are admitted to a hospital at least a day before any anesthesia detox is performed , for a complete medical evaluation including medical history, physical exam, and blood work to evaluate kidney and liver function. Patients also have a chest X-ray and an electrocardiogram, and may undergo an exercise stress test if necessary. Patients then start a pre-medication protocol, where medications are given to prevent or relieve the symptoms of withdrawal. Additional medications are used to lower the acid content of the stomach, and to curb the adrenalin or adrenergic response to withdrawal.
It is imperative that patients are properly evaluated before anesthesia detox as an in-patient, so pre-medication can be properly administered to stabilize body functions. This helps to achieve a smooth and safe detoxification procedure.
Not all patients are a candidate for rapid detox and different manners of medical detox are available and discussed with patients, if that is the case.
THE RAPID DETOX
Usually on the second day, patients are transferred to their private rooms at the ICU for individual monitoring. Once patients are appropriately sedated and pre-medicated, they are put under sedation for around 60 to 90 minutes. While the patient sleeps comfortably, an acute opiate withdrawal is accelerated with medications to block the opiate receptors. This medically-induced withdrawal is controlled and closely monitored by board-certified anesthesiologist with over 17 years’ experience with this process. During the sedation, patients feel no discomfort and have no memory of the acute withdrawal. After the patients awake, they are closely monitored for the rest of the day and night. Our medical staff is specially trained to ensure patients comfort and safety, before and after the detoxification procedure.
Usually the morning after procedure, patients are transferred from the ICU back to the medical floor where they continue to recover, receive intravenous fluids, and regain their strength. Patients are encouraged to get out of bed, walk, and resume eating regularly. During this period, physicians assess the patient’s readiness for discharge
Patients are usually in the hospital for a total two to three days (where they always have a private room), with the remainder of the time at the Domus Retreat (www.domusretreat.com), where we work with the emotional health of our patients, while the staff supervises the physical transition. Opiate dependency causes numerous changes in brain chemistry and organ functions, so after the procedure it is paramount that patients are monitored properly for at least a few days in order to regulate basic functions and prevent medical complications or immediate relapse.
