Vicodin is an opiate (narcotic) medication that combines hydrocodone and acetaminophen. Hydrocodone is the opiate component and acetaminophen is a non-narcotic pain reliever. Vicodin is intended for the treatment of moderate to severe pain. It should be used exactly as prescribed but can be habit forming, leading to dependence and addiction. This usually happens after patients build up a tolerance to the medication, which can diminish its effectiveness. Escalation of Vicodin use at this point can lead to dangerous drug abuse.
Vicodin dependence is a matter not to be taken lightly. Its progressive nature means that it can worsen over time, creating serious hardships medically, financially, emotionally and sometimes even legally.
No one who takes Vicodin for legitimate pain relief intends to become addicted to it. It can just happen if Vicodin is taken over a prolonged period. Over time, patients create a tolerance to the drug requiring larger amounts to achieve the same results, putting them at risk of overdose. Vicodin creates a sense of euphoria and relaxation making it a highly addictive narcotic . New data shows one person dies every 19 minutes in the U.S. from a prescription drug overdose

Traditional drug rehab treatment methods for Vicodin addiction – talk therapy along with medicinal treatment to lessen the pain of withdrawal – often have less than 10% success rates after the first year due to Vicodin’s powerful, physically addictive properties.
Our safe and effective opiate treatment doesn’t rely on outdated therapies or opiate substitute medications to encourage recovery. Some programs offer half-fast detox where they use other opiate medications (Suboxone, Subutex or methadone) to wean patients from drugs that are more potent. These can cause additional dependency issues.
The right program should be safe, effective and humane. It should help to manage a painful withdrawal, thereby guarding against future instances of relapse. Patients also need to know that Vicodin detox doesn’t have to be painful or take weeks, months or years.

Rapid opiate detoxification is a very serious and potentially dangerous medical procedure when not performed properly in an accredited hospital. Patients often times have unknown underlying medical conditions due to long-term use of opiates and other drugs, so it is important that they are admitted to a full-service hospital the day before the procedure for proper medical screening, monitoring, hydration, and pre-medication.
The Vicodin rapid detox treatment is performed in:
• A full service hospital under the strict supervision of one of our medical directors.
• During Vicodin detox using our rapid detox treatment or Waismann Methodsm, the body’s opiate receptors are cleansed of opiates while the patient is quite comfortable in a private room.
• The goal is to rid the body of physical addiction: the patient literally sleeps through physical withdrawal.
• The Waismann Method eliminates the cravings that often accompany traditional opiate detox treatments.
• You are followed every step of the way from admission to release, and are assisted in creating a plan for remaining opiate-free once you complete your Vicodin detox.
Without exception, all rapid opiate detoxification patients should be treated in an ICU setting and monitored for approximately 24 hours after the procedure, with some patients requiring a longer period of monitoring to ensure stability and minimize complications. Many practitioners suggest less monitoring, and perform the procedure in an outpatient clinic setting while sending patients to a hotel for recovery, which is simply inappropriate and unsafe.
