Oxycodone Related Dangers
One of the major dangers of oxycodone abuse is the potential for overdose, especially in addicts who override the pill’s built-in time release mechanism by crushing the tablet and snorting, ingesting, or injecting the powder. Because oxycodone can depress respiration and lower blood pressure, an overdose can cause seizures, coma, or cardiac arrest.
Furthermore, many oxycodone addicts will attempt to prolong their high by mixing the drug with alcohol, stimulants, or depressants, and these combinations drastically increase the risk of respiratory failure, heart attack, and stroke.
Offering Counseling for Individuals and Families
Your addiction doesn’t just affect your life, but also takes a toll on your parents, siblings, romantic partners, children, friends, and loved ones. Even with the help of oxycodone addiction treatment and a detox and rehab program, your addiction will still have a lasting impact on your family unless you all address the consequences of your behavior.
At Beachway, we understand that family counseling is good for you, that it’s an essential step for the healing of your family and the individual members, and that it’s necessary to prevent stress and problems that could lead to a relapse. We also recognize that your family and loved ones will play an integral role in your recovery, which is why we offer family counseling services for our clients on top of the individual and group therapy that you’ll attend. Following your OxyContin detox, you’ll have access to family therapy, where your loved ones can come together to:
- Learn how to effectively deal with your addiction
- Find out how to participate in your recovery without enabling you
- Address family problems and dynamics that may have led to your drug use and addiction
- Learn about healthy relationships, boundaries, and supportive behaviors
- Explore how to deal with stress and promote a healthy family dynamic
- Understand the emotional consequences of your addiction and the impact it’s had on the family and its members
- Set goals for a healthy and sober future
