Prescription drug abuse is a rapidly growing problem in the United States. The number of prescription drug-related deaths is higher then ever because of how easy it is to obtain such drugs. Since drugs like Oxycontin and Roxycodone can be obtained legally and are frequently prescribed by doctors, some individuals falsely think they are safe to use whenever they desire. In 2009, 1.2 million hospital visits were caused by 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 the body of the drug and allows people to go through the withdrawal process so they are able to start healing spiritually, mentally, and physically. Although it is treatable, recovering from oxycontin addiction is a lifelong journey. After medically detoxed, patients should attend a long-term treatment program in order to recognize and change unhealthy behaviors.
