Medically-Assisted Percocet Detox Program

Finding the Right Percocet Detox & Withdrawal Treatment

Recovering from opioid dependence or addiction begins with complete detoxification. If you’ve been suffering from a Percocet use disorder for any amount of time, medically assisted detoxification is a crucial first step. Withdrawal symptoms can be challenging, painful, and lead to serious health issues that require immediate medical intervention. For this reason, it is safest to detox at a specialized medical facility.

At Waismann Method®, we want to ensure that detoxing from Percocet is a safe and effective experience. We perform all Percocet detox protocols inside a private accredited hospital where patients receive around-the-clock medical support to alleviate physical symptoms. If you’re ready to start your journey toward recovery, get in touch with our team for a confidential assessment. We will create a custom treatment plan based on your unique situation and needs, so that you can safely and effectively detox from Percocet and begin your path to recovery.

From Tolerance to Dependence to Addiction: How People Become Addicted to Percocet

Percocet is an opioid medication prescribed for moderate to severe pain control on a short-term basis. It contains Oxycodone, a potent narcotic painkiller, and acetaminophen, a non-narcotic analgesic (also found in over-the-counter pain relievers). Using this drug for over a week or in higher doses than prescribed can significantly increase a person’s risks of developing a substance use disorder and experiencing withdrawal symptoms when they try to quit.

To understand how a person develops a substance use disorder, you must realize that the body undergoes several changes. These changes can be captured in three stages:

When a person takes Percocet in high doses or at more frequent intervals, tolerance can begin to develop. A person is considered tolerant to a drug’s effects when they need higher doses to feel the same relief they experienced when initially taking the opioid. If they continue with this behavior, physical dependence can develop.

Chemical dependence, or physical dependence, describes the changes a user’s body undergoes as the drug interacts with their nervous system. When a person continually uses Percocet, the Oxycodone found in the drug binds to their opioid receptors, which were designed to connect with the body’s endorphins. Over time, the person’s body restructures its chemical balance to include Oxycodone. When the user stops taking Percocet, their brain is thrown out of balance, and unpleasant side effects can occur. For this reason, detoxing Percocet without medical assistance becomes very difficult.

Addiction sets in when the person no longer feels like they can deal with life without being under the influence of their chosen drug. It’s during this stage that users exhibit the greatest behavioral shifts. They may stop participating in their favorite activities and avoid family and friends. They may also compulsively lie about their drug use and become easily agitated when others bring up their lifestyle or recent behaviors. At this point, it will take a moment of crisis and medical intervention (such as a Percocet detox program) for the person to break free from the hold the drug has on them. 

Percocet Withdrawal Symptoms and Side Effects

While Percocet dependency does not necessarily mean someone is addicted to that drug, it can still be extremely challenging for the person to quit using the opioid without the intervention of medically-assisted Percocet detox treatment. Whether quitting after dependency or addiction, the withdrawal symptoms can be debilitating. The powerful and potentially dangerous withdrawal symptoms include:

● Strong opioid cravings
● Nausea
● Vomiting
● Diarrhea
● Shakes
● Cold sweats
● Muscle aches
● Insomnia
● Restlessness
● Severe agitation
● Anxiety
● Depression
● Seizures and possibly coma

Before starting a rapid Percocet detox program, our experts provide a personalized and thorough assessment of each patient to ensure we can effectively and safely manage the physiological changes that occur during opioid detoxification.

The main benefit of this procedure is that it allows patients to detoxify from opioids without having to experience the intense pain and discomfort normally associated with most cold turkey withdrawals. The treatment begins with the patient being put under anesthesia. While they sleep comfortably, the physician accelerates an acute opiate withdrawal using antagonist medications. Full detoxification is completed under anesthesia, and the patient has no memory of the procedure.
