Pain Killer Detox, Abuse and Treatment in NJ

Prescription pain killer abuse is a widespread issue, which has gained a tremendous amount of media and political coverage in recent years. Both in NJ and nationwide, there has been a push to increase awareness for drug addiction and funding for treatment programs. It is difficult to quantify pain killer abuse, as it can occur in varying degrees and is not often reported, but many estimate that as many as eight million Americans are affected. Among the most commonly abused pain killers are Vicodin and Oxycodone, each of which can be highly addictive. When taken recreationally or incorrectly, these pain killers can have detrimental effects on the mind and body. Without proper pain killer detox and treatment for pain killer abuse, a tolerance to these drugs will persist and overdosing may occur.

Detox Treatment in NJ Following Pain Killer Abuse

Pain killer detox is the first step in recovering from addiction. This process involves abstention from using the abused pain killer, whether independently or in a medical facility. While pain killer detox can be done at home, it is most successful with the support of doctors and other trained professionals. Pain killers are highly addictive and habit-forming, making detox following pain killer abuse difficult. Withdrawal symptoms, which range from irritability and anxiety to loss of appetite and nausea, can be difficult for an individual to endure on their own, and often inhibit the detox process. Doctors will often prescribe medication for such withdrawal symptoms to ensure that detox is as safe and painless as possible. In NJ, GenPsych offers and Ambulatory Detox program that provides transportation to and from their medical facility for detox treatment. Individuals receive the medication and support they need during pain killer detoxification, and return to their homes the same evening.

Treatment in NJ for Pain Killer Abuse following Detox

Where detox for pain killer abuse is the first step in recovery, treatment completes the process. Pain killer treatment following detox may consist of continued support both in medication and therapy in order to prevent relapse. It is not uncommon for individuals struggling with pain killer abuse to have additional mental health issues that require attention and resolution. A counselor can be helpful in identifying the cause(s) of one’s addiction and in providing additional tools to help an individual address those causes without drugs. Substance abuse programs may also include group therapy, where individuals can relate to others who are battling similar issues with pain killer abuse. In NJ, such treatment options for pain killer abuse following detox are available at GenPsych. For more information on GenPsych’s Substance Abuse Program, click here.
