Prescription drug abuse is a rapidly rising problem in the United States. The number of prescription drug related deaths are higher then they ever have been because of how easily obtained the drugs are. Because drugs like Oxycontin and Roxycodone are able to be legally obtained and prescribed by doctors makes some individuals think it is safe and also allows for other individuals to abuse the system in order to get more. The pharmaceutical companies have now become the drug deals. In 2009, 1.2 million hospital visits were because of the abuse of drugs like Oxycontin. Oxycontin addiction is similar to heroin addiction, because oxycontin is an opiate like heroin.
Oxycontin addiction is treatable with medically supervised detox, followed by drug addiction treatment. Detox rids your body of the drug and gives you time to go through the withdrawal process so you are able to start healing spiritually, mentally, and physically. Although it is treatable, recovery from oxycontin addiction is a lifelong journey. After medically detoxed, patients should attend long-term treatment in order to recognize and change unhealthy behaviors.
