Focused Treatment
Medically Assisted Percocet Detoxification

Percocet is a potent opioid painkiller, made from a combination of acetaminophen (the active ingredient in over-the-counter pain reliever Tylenol) and oxycodone, a powerful and habit-forming opioid. Because this medication is so susceptible to abuse, medical professionals generally prescribe it for the short-term treatment of acute and severe pain. If taken for longer than prescribed or if taken in higher doses than prescribed, there is a good chance that a physical dependence occurs. Additionally, acetaminophen has been shown to cause permanent liver damage – the high dose of acetaminophen found in Percocet can quickly cause liver damage if an individual consistently ingests more than the recommended dose. If you or someone close to you has been suffering at the hands of a Percocet abuse disorder of any severity, medically monitored detox is a necessary first step. While the symptoms associated with opioid withdrawal are not generally life-threatening, they can be extremely uncomfortable and lead to serious physical and psychological complications when left untreated.

Immersion Recovery Center offers men and women in South Florida, the surrounding areas, the United States, and throughout the world a multi-phased continuum of effective clinical care. If you have been struggling with a substance abuse disorder of any type, simply give us a call and we will get you started on your own personal journey of addiction recovery today.

Our Comprehensive Program of Clinical Care

Our unique and carefully developed program of recovery includes three distinct phases:

  • Phase 1: Medically monitored detox and residential inpatient treatment
  • Phase 2: Partial hospitalization (PHP)
  • Phase 3: Intensive outpatient treatment (IOP), sober living and aftercare

Medically monitored detox is crucial to the first phase of long-term recovery, and is essential to laying the foundation for lasting success in sobriety. When it comes to Percocet abuse, a multi-phased continuum of care is absolutely essential. This specific prescription medication is highly addictive, and psychological cravings are liable to persist for the first several months of sobriety. For this reason it is important that relapse prevention skills are instilled as early as medical detox and that clients are able to employ and continue honing these skills during inpatient rehab and aftercare. For more information on our multi-phased continuum of care, reach out to us today.

Percocet Abuse & Addiction – Signs & Symptoms

There are numerous physical, psychological and behavioral symptoms associated with Percocet abuse and addiction.

Common physical symptoms of Percocet abuse include:

  • Low blood pressure
  • A reduced heart rate
  • A lack of coordination
  • Profuse sweating
  • Dizziness and lightheadedness
  • Fatigue and drowsiness

Common psychological and behavioral symptoms associated with Percocet abuse include:

  • Confusion and disorientation
  • Mood swings
  • Agitation and irritability
  • Insomnia and other sleep-related issues
  • Depression
  • Attempts to cut back on the amount of Percocet being taken coupled with an inability to cut back or quit for any significant period of time
  • Continuing to use Percocet despite negative consequences
  • Legal or financial issues
  • Failing to keep up with personal responsibilities and obligations
  • Isolation and secretiveness
  • Visiting multiple doctors in hopes of obtaining more than one Percocet prescription at one time (also referred to as “doctor shopping”)
  • The development of a physical tolerance, meaning a higher dose of Percocet will be required in order for the desired effects to be achieved
  • The occurrence of physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms upon abruptly ceased use

If you have been abusing Percocet for any period of time, there is a very good chance you will experience withdrawal symptoms within the first several hours of the final dose. While it is uncommon for these symptoms to develop into life-threatening medical complications, they can be extremely uncomfortable and difficult to manage when not overseen by an experienced team of medical professionals.

Percocet Withdrawal – Signs & Symptoms

Percocet withdrawal typically takes place over the course of one or two weeks and happens in two distinct stages – early stage withdrawal and late stage withdrawal.

Symptoms associated with early stage withdrawal include:

  • Sleep disturbances
  • Excessive yawning
  • Mild to moderate flu-like symptoms, including a runny nose, a low-grade fever, stomach cramping, nausea, body chills and general aches and pains
  • General feelings of physical discomfort
  • Mild psychological cravings

Symptoms associated with late stage withdrawal include:

  • Severe stomach cramping
  • Nausea, vomiting and diarrhea
  • Insomnia and other more severe sleep-related issues
  • Anxiety, which can lead to panic attacks and hyperventilation
  • Depression and general feelings of hopelessness and malaise
  • Body tremors and uncontrollable chills

When it comes to effectively treating the symptoms of early stage Percocet withdrawal, a combination of safe, over-the-counter medications and a peaceful, relaxing environment are typically sufficient. When the client begins experiencing the symptoms of late stage withdrawal, however, medical intervention becomes necessary.

Once the more severe symptoms subside, the individual is likely to experience post-acute withdrawal symptoms for between several weeks and several months. This is partially why it is so important for anyone who has been abusing Percocet to continue on in a multi-phased continuum of clinical care. At Immersion Recovery Center we effectively treat post-acute withdrawal symptoms on a person-to-person basis.

Why is Percocet Medical Detoxification Necessary?

When it comes to treating the symptoms associated with Percocet withdrawal, medical detox is always necessary. At Immersion Recovery Center we believe in providing our clients with a comprehensive and integrated approach to medical detox, meaning that we tackle the physical, mental and emotional implications of addiction simultaneously. Not only do we offer around-the-clock medical care in order to effectively treat all physical symptoms the moment we arise, but we utilize proven holistic methods and intensive therapeutic care to help pave a lasting foundation for long-term sobriety.
