1 Painkiller Addiction Painkiller addiction can happen to anyone. Whoever you are, however virtuous or disciplined you believe yourself to be, you're vulnerable to painkiller abuse if you use prescription-strength painkiller medication. The good news, though, is that even the most hopeless abuser can overcome painkillers addiction-provided that he or she enrolls in the right painkiller addiction treatment program at the right painkiller addiction treatment center. Our trained counselors have many years of combined experience in helping clients find the painkiller addiction treatment facilities that are most capable of meeting their individual needs. The right pain killer addiction treatment program from the right pain killer addiction treatment center will literally change your life. Don't wait any longer to let us help you find it. Your painkiller addiction undoubtedly began as a pain-management problem that spun out of control. Now pain-management is essential to the ultimate success of your recovery. You want to find a place that will make treatment painless for you, because pain shouldn't be a part of the treatment process. Our trained counselors know what you need to get better. They can help you find a painkiller addiction treatment center that will heal you without hurting you. For your own sake, for the sake of the people who care about you, don't wait any longer to learn the good news firsthand. Understanding Pain Killer Addictions Painkillers are among the most commonly-abused forms of prescription drugs in the United States. Research conducted by the National Institute on Drug Abuse suggests that almost five million Americans used prescription drugs abusively for the first time in 2002, a number which had doubled since By any measure, then, painkillers addiction and prescription drug abuse are pervasive and increasingly prevalent problems in twenty-first century America. Most pain killer addictions stem from the use of prescribed opiates. When taken properly, opiates can be enormously effective in helping patients cope with chronic pain conditions. When take in excessive does, however, opiates can habit-forming feelings of euphoria-and thus leave all users very much at risk of succumbing to addictive and abuse behavior. If you're one of the many individuals who've fallen into this trap, you can learn from this site what you can do about it. The most commonly-abused forms of prescription opiates are morphine, codeine, and oxycodone. Oxycodone is the active agent in OxyContin, which is itself perhaps the most well-known and pervasively-abused pain killer in the United States. In that sense, a close case study of OxyContin addiction can shine a more general light on pain killers abuse and pain killer abuse treatment. 1 / 6

2 Like all opiates, OxyContin stimulates natural pleasure centers in the human brain, thereby inducing a feeling of euphoric bliss so intense that individuals who experience it once often find themselves anxious to experience it again. That anxiety is amplified by the low that follows the high, which is generally characterized by feelings of restlessness and discomfort. In the end, then, OxyContin abusers succumb to painkillers addiction both because using feels tremendously good and because not using feels tremendously bad. The side effects of prolonged OxyContin abuse are manifold and well-documented. Opiate abusers often experience appetite suppression, sleeplessness, gastrointestinal distress, loss of libido, physical weakness, involuntary tremors, and irritability. Long-term abuse has also been shown to interfere with respiratory function and been linked to fetal complications in pregnant women. In 2002, the United States Drug Enforcement Agency implicated OxyContin in 400 drug-related deaths. Although the precise mechanisms and symptoms of other forms of painkiller addiction vary from those of OxyContin abuse, the overarching story is the same: Painkiller addicts need professional medical care to overcome their diseases. The good news is that private painkiller abuse treatment facilities can and do provide that support-but only to those patients who are both wise enough and courageous enough to seek help from the right place. Before you can achieve painkiller addiction recovery, in other words, you have to understand the philosophy and methodology of prescription painkiller addiction treatment. What You Should Know About Painkiller Addiction Treatment In one sense, all painkiller addiction treatment programs are more or less the same. Every prescription painkiller abuse treatment regimen, for example, must or at least should include three distinct phases: detox, primary treatment, and aftercare. Moreover, the goal of every painkiller addiction treatment facility is or at least should be identical: to help patients heal from the inside out, so that they'll be prepared for a lifetime of healthy and happy sobriety. Speaking generally, then, it's fair to say that the caregivers at every painkiller addiction treatment center work through the same process and towards the same end. But those broad similarities belie the stark differences between and among various prescription pain killer abuse treatment facilities. The truth is that every painkiller abuse treatment center applies its own unique philosophy and methodology to its painkiller abuse treatment programs, thus creating a unique treatment environment for its individual patients. The practical implication, of course, is that your pain killer abuse treatment experience will vary widely depending on the specific pain killer abuse treatment program in which you enroll. Unfortunately, not all pain killer abuse treatment centers are equally capable of serving their clients. In fact, some of the most well-known pain killer addiction treatment programs in California and around the country routinely fail to help patients achieve lasting recovery. Before 2 / 6

3 you enroll in any particular pain killer addiction treatment facility, then, it's essential that you thoroughly research the various options available to you. The right painkiller addiction treatment program will literally change your life. The wrong will doom you to your current path. Under the circumstances, you simply can't afford to make anything less than a fully informed decision. Detox Painkiller abuse detoxification is an essential first step in the painkiller abuse treatment process. Painkiller addicts form acute metabolic dependencies upon the drugs they abuse, which means that the abrupt termination of usage is often associated with painful and potentially dangerous withdrawal symptoms. The ultimate goal of pain killer abuse detoxification regimens is to help pain killer abuse detox patients cope with these symptoms as they prepare to meet the challenges of their primary pain killer abuse treatment programs. Depending on the severity of an individual patient's dependency, painkiller addiction detox may last as long as several weeks. During this time, doctors and therapists use a range of medical and physical treatments to mitigate the symptoms of withdrawal. Although the general methodology of pain killer addiction detoxification is always the same, its precise application-and the experience of a pain killer addiction detox patient-varies widely from one pain killer addiction treatment facility to the next. Some prescription pain killer addiction treatment facilities allow patients to suffer mild or even excruciating physical discomfort during the prescription painkiller detoxification process. Others make prescription painkilller detox almost entirely pain-free, so that patients are relatively comfortable through the full course of their withdrawal periods. Most patients, of course, prefer pain-free painkiller addiction detoxification; and many painkillers addiction treatment experts argue that painless painkiller abuse detox is essential to long-term recovery insofar as it leaves patients with the physical and mental energy they need to meet the challenges of their primary pain killer abuse treatment programs. In any case, it's essential that you learn about the prescription pain killer detoxification philosophy employed by a painkiller abuse treatment facility before you enroll in one of that facility's rehab programs. If you want to enjoy a pain-free prescription pain killer detox experience, you can't afford to make a decision without first getting the facts. Primary Treatment Primary painkiller addiction treatment programs begin immediately after the detox process is complete. Most primary painkiller abuse treatment programs last several months and entail a 3 / 6

4 range of physical and psychological treatments. Physical treatments may include medication to help patients cope with ongoing symptoms of drug withdrawal, fitness training to rebuild the muscular and cardiovascular capacities depleted by chronic painkiller abuse, and nutritional supplements to fortify a patient's recovering bodily systems. Psychological treatments, meanwhile, typically include a combination of one-on-one counseling sessions, group therapy meetings, and professional treatment for various psychiatric disorders when appropriate. Although the ultimate goal of every primary pain killer abuse treatment program is the same, the means employed towards that goal vary widely from one pain killer abuse treatment facility to the next. Among the most important points of distinction between various pain killer abuse treatment programs are the comprehensiveness of care, the specificity of care, and the nature of the environment in which care is administered. Before you choose any particular pain killer abuse treatment center, it's vital that you confer with our expert advisers to understand how each of these factors impacts the ultimate outcome of a pain killer addiction treatment program. Comprehensive pain killer abuse treatment programs are those which aim to eliminate the root cause of addiction instead of merely mitigating its symptoms. In technical terms, this elimination involves evaluating and treating a patient's pain killer addiction in conjunction with other co-occurring disorders, which may include clinical depression, anxiety disorder, or bipolar disorder. Patients who receive such comprehensive care from their pain killer addiction treatment centers are prepared for a lifetime of stable and sustainable sobriety. Those who don't will always be dependent on psychiatric medications to stay sober-and will always be at risk of relapsing to their addictive behaviors. The specificity of a painkiller abuse treatment program is the extent to which that program is tailored to meet the individual needs of an individual patient. Pain killer abuse never afflicts any two addicts in quite the same, which means that all pain killer abuse treatment facilities should design their pain killer abuse treatment programs on a case-by-case basis. Those centers which adhere to this principle provide patients with the sort of personalized support they need to achieve meaningful and lasting wellness. Those which don't routinely fail in their efforts to help clients reach their long-term painkiller addiction recovery goals. The healing environment at any particular pain killer abuse treatment facility is shaped most fundamentally by the elegance of that facility's treatment center. Painkiller abuse treatment is always an arduous process, and patients need robust physical and emotional support in order to complete it successfully. In that sense, the best pain killer abuse treatment facilities are those which provide residents with the most elegant amenities and accommodations. In the end, the little niceties provided by luxury pain killer addiction treatment facilities-niceties like gourmet meals, personal spa treatments, and high thread-count sheets-can make the difference between the success and failure of primary pain killer addiction treatment programs. Don't wait any longer to consult with one a trained counselor to learn everything you need to learn about the various clinics available to you. 4 / 6

5 Aftercare No patient is every entirely healed at the end of his or her primary pain killer abuse treatment program. On the contrary, painkiller addiction is a chronic disease, and painkiller addiction treatment must be a sustained process. In that sense, the aftercare services provided by painkiller addiction treatment centers are vital in ensuring the long-term success of a patient's rehab experience The most important form of aftercare is that delivered in private sober living facilities. Sober living programs help patients make the transition from the highly-structured environment of a pain killer addiction treatment center back to the independence of the real world. To achieve this end, counselors and mentors at a sober living facility provide patients with a secure and supportive environment in which to develop their life skills and self-esteem, with the ultimate goal of helping those residents take ownership of their long-term health. After the sober living period is complete, other forms of aftercare may include ongoing psychological counseling and introduction to independent 12 Step support groups. Painkiller addiction treatment experts widely agree about the importance of sober living and other aftercare services. Unfortunately, this prevailing wisdom isn't universally applied by private pain killer addiction treatment facilities. In fact, some clinics essentially cut ties with patients on the last day of their primary treatment programs, thus leaving them grossly unprepared for the challenges of real-world sobriety. As should go without saying, you simply can't afford to trust your health to one of these institutions. In order to reach your long-term recovery goals, you have to find a pain killer addiction treatment facility that will stand by your side at every step along the road to wellness. Our trained counselors can help you do just that. Finding the Painkiller Addiction Treatment Program That's Right for You If you learn any lesson from the information presented above, let it be that no two painkiller abuse treatment centers are ever exactly alike. In fact, the quality of care offered by various clinics can and does differ widely depending on those clinics' philosophies and methodologies. For patients seeking effective and painless care from painkiller abuse treatment facilities, those differences can have life-changing implications. Our trained counselors are standing by to help you find the best possible support during the pain killer addiction treatment process. Take the first step today towards a happier and healthier future. Under the circumstances, you can't afford not to seek expert guidance as you set out on your journey. Painkiller addiction treatment is a tremendously complex process. In order to be successful, 5 / 6

6 painkiller addiction treatment programs must be administered with empathy and expertise, by caregivers who understand precisely what they're doing.

We really can help you find the best way forward to a happier future. All you have to do is pick up the phone and make the life-changing call. 6 / 6
