Let Daylight Recovery Services Help with Percocet Addiction

Percocet Addiction in Corona, California

Do you suspect that you or a loved one may be addicted to Percocet? Professional addiction treatment can help. Percocet is one of the most commonly abused forms of opioid narcotics. Many people who develop Percocet addictions begin with a legitimate prescription but go out of bounds with its usage.

They find themselves craving and, eventually, depending on the drug to function “normally”. Like other oxycodone-based pain relievers, Percocet is abused for the euphoric high that can occur in tandem with other effects, like sedation.

It’s important to understand the signs, symptoms, and need for supervised treatment associated with a Percocet addiction. You or your loved one’s life may depend on it.

What is Percocet?

Percocet is a brand-name narcotic pain reliever composed of oxycodone and acetaminophen (the agent found in Tylenol). The medication is prescribed to help with short-term and moderate-to-severe pain treatment. Doctors often prescribe Percocet after a severe injury or surgery. 

The pain-relieving effects of Percocet last anywhere from 3 to 5 hours. Percocet is a very strong substance and, in some people, it produces a euphoric high. This is one of the reasons people develop addictions to this drug.

Street Names for Percocet

Generically, Percocet and other oxycodone-based drugs are referred to as “pain pills” or “painkillers”. Another medication similar to Percocet is Percodan, which is composed of oxycodone and aspirin. The two are often confused. Most other street names are derived from oxycodone, such as:

  • Perks
  • Percs
  • Hillbilly Heroin

Physical Signs and Symptoms of Percocet Addiction or Abuse

The symptoms of Percocet abuse are similar to other forms of oxycodone addiction, but with the added risks associated with overusing acetaminophen. While it is an effective everyday pain reliever, several studies have revealed that acetaminophen can cause severe liver damage when used in excess. 

The most common symptoms of Percocet abuse include:

  • Dry mouth
  • Loss of appetite
  • Constricted pupils
  • Feelings of sedation or drowsiness
  • Gastrointestinal issues (i.e. nausea, abdominal cramps, vomiting, and constipation)

More severe symptoms include:

  • Chest pain
  • Seizures (in some cases)
  • Itching, rashes, hives, or facial swelling
  • Abnormally fast or slow heartbeat
  • Difficulty breathing or swallowing

Long-term Percocet abuse can lead to severe liver damage and kidney failure, along with Percocet dependence. As with other forms of oxycodone abuse, extended Percocet use causes the brain to stop producing endorphins naturally, relying instead on the artificial ones from the drug. Permanent brain damage can be a result of this substance use.

If you think a loved one may be suffering from a Percocet addiction, watch for these signs:

  • Uncharacteristic and abnormal risk-taking
  • Secretive behavior as to their whereabouts
  • Withdrawal from activities he/she previously enjoyed
  • Financial trouble, stealing, or frequent requests to borrow money

Behavioral Signs and Symptoms of Percocet Addiction or Abuse

When people are addicted to Percocet, they often become so desperate to receive the drug, that they are willing to do anything to get it. Some behaviors that are typical of someone addicted to Percocet include seeking out illegal drug dealers, visiting multiple different doctors to get a prescription, using a fake prescription, and stealing. 

Percocet Side Effects

  • Dizziness
  • Memory loss
  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety
  • Headaches
  • Abdominal pain
  • Diarrhea

The Importance of Percocet Addiction Treatment

Aside from the detrimental health effects, Percocet addiction can leave a person’s life in shambles. Don’t wait until an overdose occurs to seek help. Percocet overdose is potentially fatal, and it almost guarantees permanent liver, kidney, or brain damage.  

If you or a loved one are unable to restrict Percocet use to the recommended amount, seek professional help from a treatment center offering rehab. Our Percocet treatment program starts off with detox and then ventures out into your own custom treatment program. 

Our Percocet Treatment Program in Corona, California

Since Percocet is an oxycodone-based medication, Percocet treatment will have similar elements to other oxycodone recovery plans. As always, the plan given to you or your loved one will be personalized by our expert staff and begin with residential treatment

Inpatient treatment provides clients with 24-hour care at a live-in facility. After the detoxification process is complete, your days will consist of professional counseling and the opportunity to use other services, such as:

Mindfulness Meditation

Meditation is the practice of focusing your mind while in a quiet place. Often during meditation, people focus on a specific object, thought, memory, or activity. 

Mindful meditation is the practice of meditating while being extra aware of your feelings and thoughts. During mindful meditation, you are supposed to accept whatever thoughts and feelings that come up without any judgment. Mindful meditation increases your focus and awareness. 

When it comes to addiction treatment, such as that given to those addicted to Percocet, mindful meditation can help you focus and resist your withdrawal symptoms and cravings. Mindful meditation can also help those addicted to Percocet reduce their stress and levels of PTSD, improve their mood, attention, and creativity, and increase their levels of emotional stability. 

With all the mental and emotional tools that mindful meditation provides Percocet addiction recovery patients, it should make transitioning into the real world a bit easier for them after treatment. 

Trauma Therapy

Trauma therapy is any form of therapy that works to help people overcome psychological trauma or PTSD. Psychological trauma is any traumatic event or situation from your past that you cannot psychologically cope with. 

There are many different forms of trauma therapy. At Daylight Recovery Services, we provide treatment for co-occurring disorders, otherwise known as dual diagnosis treatment, for those who are suffering from both addiction disorders and trauma.

You can also utilize our co-occurring disorders treatment if you are suffering from both an addiction disorder and any form of a psychiatric disorder. Psychiatric disorders include depression, anxiety, social phobia, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, and more. 

While in our dual diagnosis treatment program, you must first take a full neuropsychological evaluation. We will use the results of your neuropsychological evaluation to create for you a custom co-occurring disorders treatment program. 

Here at Daylight Recovery, we offer co-occurring disorders treatment programs that are in inpatient, intensive and individual, and group therapy format. Daylight Recovery Services also has co-occurring disorder treatment programs that utilize medication therapy, holistic therapy, and/or family education services. 

Custom-Tailored Case Management

Custom-tailored case management is custom legal management that ensures that an individual can receive appropriate medical care for his or her addiction, and then still go back to work at his or her workplace. Since here at Daylight Recovery Services, we know how valuable your career and finances are to you, we’ve provided you with tailored case management services to handle all your financial and work inquiries. 

Sound Healing

Sound healing is the holistic practice of making different sound frequencies around the human body and mind that human brain waves can connect to energetically. Sound healing is a practice that medical professionals use when dealing with people in addiction treatment because it can be therapeutic for them. This approach is said to help treat mental disorders such as depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, PTSD, and more.

Reiki

Like sound healing, reiki is also an energetic form of healing. Reiki is when people lay hands on other people to spread their “life force energy” to them. People use reiki services to decrease their bodily pain and help them relax.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioral therapy is a combination of psychotherapy and behavioral therapy. Basically, CBT uses practical problem solving and psychology to help people better understand and deal with their thoughts and behaviors. Cognitive behavioral therapy is one of the many therapeutic services we offer at Daylight Recovery Services.

Anyone receiving treatment at Daylight Recovery Services has access to our state-of-the-art facility and its many amenities.
