Treatment for Vicodin Addiction
The first step in detox and addiction treatment is to detox from Vicodin. Detoxification is a process where the addict must flush the chemicals from the body, which usually means stopping or reducing the intake so the remaining drug gets used up without being replenished.
Detox may be an extremely uncomfortable experience because of the physically addictive properties, which can result in withdrawal symptoms once the addict stops taking it. Depending on the strength of the addiction, withdrawal can be no more serious than flu-like symptoms of a runny nose, muscle aches and sweating, or can entail irregular heart rate, vomiting, diarrhea and more serious symptoms.
Getting Treated for Vicodin Addiction
The best chance for successful Vicodin rehabilitation is with professional help. Once a safe, supervised detox has been achieved, rehabilitation can begin with personal therapy, support group work, and new behavioral tools and coping strategies to help a recovering addict handle the challenges and stresses of life without resorting to the relief of pain or stress through addictive substances.
