Oxycodone Addiction Treatment
Oxycodone is a potent pain reliever, but it has also become a problem drug of epidemic proportions. Not only does the misuse of oxycodone negatively affect your health and relationships, but it can also lead to addiction.
Should you find yourself battling an oxycodone addiction, it is essential that you reach out for professional help before you place your life at risk.
At United Recovery, we offer complete oxycodone addiction treatment and rehab to help you live a drug-free lifestyle.
This guide looks at the treatment programs and support services we provide as part of our tailored rehabilitation plans.
Getting Help for Oxycodone Addiction
The problem with this drug is its intense psychological addiction. As it acts on the brain’s receptors, you feel a strong compulsion to continue to use. Your addiction may take over every aspect of your life, from your job performance to your relationship, as you’re driven to use oxycodone. You may also find yourself using more than the prescribed dose as your body develops tolerance. This can lead to an overdose, placing your life at risk.
This is why it is vital to seek help as soon as you notice problem use, or medication abuse, when it comes to you, or your loved one’s, oxycodone usage. You can find initial support and information via:
- Your GP
- An addiction hotline
- Private substance rehabilitation provider such as United Recovery
- A charitable organization in your area
- Mobile apps for therapy and treatment
How We Treat Oxycodone Addiction & Abuse
To help you with oxycodone addiction and abuse, we offer safe detox in our medical facility and under the guidance of professional clinical staff. With round-the-clock monitoring, you can detox and better cope with the withdrawal process as the use of oxycodone is reduced and stopped.
Withdrawal symptoms from oxycodone can include nausea and general discomfort, but with medication, these effects can be alleviated and managed until you are sober. Owing to the psychological addiction caused by the pain medication, we offer treatment through inpatient rehab once you have successfully performed an addiction detox. Our rehabilitation program is based on our unique approach to therapy and supporting the recovery process.
Treating oxycodone abuse and addiction requires the support and monitoring you receive from our therapists, group therapy, and community of individuals in recovery. At United Recovery, we offer different types of treatment, including a 12 step model to give you the best possible start on your road to sobriety.

How Long Does Oxycodone Rehab Last?
Oxycodone falls into the opiate class of drugs, creating both a physical and psychological addiction. The body becomes dependent on the drug as the use of Oxy or Perc changes the responsiveness of the opioid receptors in the brain and central nervous system. Individuals start to believe that they cannot function normally without oxycodone, leading to using more of the substance more frequently. This builds tolerance, and if you try to reduce or quit using, it leads to withdrawal symptoms.
To help you overcome addiction’s physical and psychological aspects, we recommend a longer program to achieve the best outcomes. Treatment for opiate addiction typically lasts 12 months or longer. During this time, individuals are taught necessary coping and life skills, relapse prevention, and steps to live a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise. Our addiction treatment focuses on preparing you for life outside of rehab.
When it comes to the specific detox, rehab and secondary care, treatment lengths vary between a month and five months of active treatment. However, as long as you are still sober and in control, you will have to be aware and actively seeking ways to abstain from Oxycodone use.
Therapies used to Treat Oxycodone Addiction
Oxycodone is considered a semi-synthetic opioid commonly used to treat severe and acute pain. It is not recommended for chronic pain because it is one of the most misused prescription drugs in the world. It goes by the street names Perc, Oxy, and Roxy and acts on the opioid receptors in the brain and central nervous system. Because the drug provides such rapid pain relief, it produces pleasurable sensations, which is why so many people become addicted.
We create a safe and supportive environment where every individual can participate in group sessions. Through group activity, you can share your experiences and personal struggles with oxycodone addiction while learning about others who may share similar encounters and struggles. Our group therapy is about community involvement in the recovery process to ensure you feel validated and valued.
Individual therapy is an essential part of addiction treatment and recovery. From our alternative therapists, such as chiropractors and nutrition counselors, to our behaviorists, individual sessions are tailored to address your unique needs. Individual support is based on the nature of your addiction and whether underlying psychological conditions need to be treated.
One-on-one therapy involves meeting with a professional counselor in which you explore the reasons for addiction, ways of identifying triggers and learning new ways of coping with life’s stress and challenges. We offer psychodynamic therapies – a type of talk therapy to treat addiction and underlying mental health conditions.
For effective recovery from addiction, you need to learn new skills, including relaxation and stress management. For those who have used oxycodone for pain, supportive therapy can introduce a natural means of providing relief while strengthening the mind and body connection.

In 2013, the National Survey on Drug Use and Health revealed that around 9.9% of individuals aged 18-25 had abused oxycodone compared to the 6% of individuals over 26 years old. The drug also saw the highest rate of deaths between 2003-2009. These alarming statistics have called for a comprehensive approach to oxycodone treatment which includes long-term inpatient rehab to help individuals avoid the triggers responsible for relapsing and overdosing.
