Oxycodone/OxyContin Addiction

Content Overview: Oxycodone, and it’s concentrated formulary OxyContin, are narcotic painkillers that are synthetically derived from the poppy plant. Considered one of the most prescribed painkillers, oxycodone is highly-addictive and poses the serious risk of abuse. If you are addicted to oxycodone, OxyContin, Percocet or any other opiate painkiller, South Coast Counseling wants to help. We have been treating addiction for over 50 years, even before the current Opioid Epidemic, so we know what we are doing.

Used to treat severe pain, oxycodone/oxycontin is addictive. Here at South Coast Counseling we offer oxycontin addiction treatment services. While many people are addicted to one drug or fall prey to prescription drug abuse, some have more than one addiction to take care of. Alcohol addiction is usually one of the problems.

Oxycodone is a strong, semi-synthetic opiate painkiller. Sometimes the signs of abuse can be difficult to recognize. Oxycodone abuse side effects can cause euphoria, nausea, lightheadedness, itching, headache, dry mouth, sweating, respiratory suppression, constipation, constricted pupils and more.

If someone is unable to get the usual oxycontin dosage, he or she may experience withdrawal symptoms. Those symptoms may include excessive sweating, restlessness and be agitated. Other symptoms include chills, diarrhea, depression, bone aches and nausea.
