Are you or a loved one struggling with OxyContin addiction? Help is available. Recovery Associates offers recovery support for people who are addicted to OxyContin. If you’re suffering from the effects of addiction, you’re not alone, and you won’t have to go through recovery alone, either. We’re here to help.
OxyContin is the brand name for a time-release formulation of oxycodone, an opioid pain relief medication. OxyContin is prescribed by doctors for the relief of moderate to severe pain. It’s a drug that’s highly likely to be abused because it has a high concentration of oxycodone.
OxyContin is only available by prescription. As with other prescription drugs, abuse and addiction has gotten more common as the drug has become more widely available. Around 2 million people abuse prescription opiates and opioids every year.
If you’re dependent on OxyContin, it can be very hard to imagine a life without the drug. It can be even harder to imagine actually taking the first step towards recovery. At Recovery Associates, we understand just how difficult this is, and we’re here to give you the support you need as you take that important first step.
When you do, you’ll meet with one of our intake specialists for an assessment. After the assessment, the specialist and your treatment team will develop your treatment plan. Your treatment team is a group of Recovery Associates staff members with whom you’ll work closely during your recovery.
The program you’ll follow starts with medically supervised detoxification. Withdrawing from OxyContin is not dangerous in medical terms, but the effects of detox can be intense and include:
To make sure your detox is safe and healthy, a medical-supervised detox is best.
Once this part of the program is complete, you’ll progress to the rehabilitation stage. This is when you’ll start to work intensively on altering the patterns of behavior that led to your OxyContin addiction.
After rehabilitation? The rest of your life! With the support of Recovery Associates, and your family and friends, you’ll start a new life free from addiction. In this stage of the program, you’ll use the skills you’ve learned and keep attending therapy sessions in order to stay on your new path.
Abusing opioid drugs like OxyContin leads to a significant physical dependency, which makes it very hard for addicts to start the recovery process. This means that treatment programs are an extremely important part of recovery. For a treatment program to work, it needs to provide ongoing daily support. That ongoing support is a cornerstone of Recovery Associates. We provide tools and teach skills that help you stay sober over the long-term.
Another cornerstone of our philosophy is providing treatment that’s tailored to each individual client. This is vital to success because what works for one person doesn’t necessarily work for everyone. You’ll have some control over your treatment plan too and will be able to choose therapy types that speak to you, whether it’s physically, emotionally, or spiritually. We offer several kinds of therapy and treatments in addition to the core one-on-one and group therapy, so you can choose what works best for you.
We believe in our program, but we also know that having an excellent staff is just as important. All of our staff members are highly trained, compassionate people who excel at their jobs, whether they’re providing therapy, counseling, or medical care, or performing administrative services. Some members of staff are former addicts themselves. They have been through the recovery process, which puts them in a unique position to provide support and understanding.
We have a high staff-to-client ratio, so every client gets individual attention, and staff are available ‘round the clock to make sure our clients always have the care they need.
Our program involves three separate stages, for the three distinct phases of recovery.
This is the most intensive level of care that we offer at Recovery Associates. PHP is a 30-day program for people who are starting their recovery. It includes more than 30 hours of group and individual therapy each week. Along with the core group and talk therapy sessions, clients can also choose “elective” therapy sessions to see what works for them.
IOP is for people who have completed the first stage of their recoveries. At this stage, clients live off-site but come to the Recovery Associates center for a minimum of eight hours a day. In this stage of recovery, clients can choose to continue with whichever “elective” therapy they most prefer, together with core group and talk therapy.
The third stage of the treatment program is designed to provide support for people as they return to their lives outside the center, in their own homes or in sober living homes. Clients in the outpatient program have weekly group and individual therapy to help them stay on their new path.

OxyContin is an incredibly addictive drug, and people who are addicted are often willing to go to extreme measures to get their fix. Some of the common signs of opioid abuse are related to the drive to get the drug, and some are related to the effects of the drug itself:
If you’re addicted to OxyContin, getting help may be one of the most difficult things you’ll ever do. But it’s also one of the very best things you can do for yourself in the short- and long-term. Living a life that’s free from addiction is worth the journey it takes to get there.
If you’re ready to live that life, Recovery Associates is ready to help you achieve it.
