Focused Treatment
Medically Assisted Vicodin Detoxification

At Immersion Recovery Center we prioritize providing our clients with a safe and pain-free drug withdrawal in a comfortable, homestyle retreat environment. We believe that medically monitored detox services should include more than medical treatment and clinical care – we believe that every comprehensive detoxification program should provide integrated and personalized care, addressing the mental and emotional aspects of addiction as well as the physical aspects. When it comes to potent and narcotic pain medications like Vicodin, the physical and psychological symptoms associated with withdrawal can be extremely uncomfortable – and potentially dangerous – when left untreated. At Immersion Recovery Center our experienced and deeply compassionate team of professional and licensed therapists, psychiatrists, doctors, prescribing physicians and addiction specialists works together to develop the most individualized and effective detox plans available – the level of clinical care that we consistently provide cannot be found in any state-run detoxification facility or in any traditional hospital setting. If you or a love one has been suffering at the hands of a Vicodin addiction and need help to quit, simply give us a call today and speak with one of our Treatment Advisors who is standing by 24/7 to help you.

What is Vicodin?

Vicodin is a potent prescription pain reliever made from a combination of acetaminophen (the active ingredient in over-the-counter pain relievers like Tylenol) and hydrocodone, an addictive opioid narcotic. Vicodin tablets generally have the same amount of acetaminophen (300mg) and a varying amount of hydrocodone. Some Vicodin tablets include 5mg of hydrocodone, while others include 7.5mg or 10mg. Most medical professionals prescribe this medication for moderate or severe pain, and will suggest that it be taken every four to six hours. Because Vicodin has such a high potential to be habit-forming, prescribing physicians suggest the medication is taken short-term until acute pain subsides – additionally, this specific medication is rarely prescribed to individuals who have a personal history or s family history of substance abuse or dependence.

In October 2014 the US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) changed Vicodin from a Schedule III to a Schedule II chemical substance after recognizing its high potential for abuse. Not only is this medication extremely addictive, but the high amounts of acetaminophen have been shown to lead to liver damage and liver failure when taken other than as prescribed. Because of this, the DEA announced that Vicodin would have to be manufactured with 325mg of acetaminophen or less – still, many individuals who abuse this specific chemical substance experience long-term liver damage because they are repeatedly ingesting such high levels of acetaminophen. If you have been suffering at the hands of a Vicodin abuse disorder of any severity, medically monitored detox is always a necessary first step on the lifelong road to recovery.

Vicodin Abuse & Addiction – Signs & Symptoms

An article titled, “The Vicodin abuse problem: A mathematical approach” published in the Journal of Theoretical Biology explores the genetic and environmental factors that lead to Vicodin addiction as well as the most viable ways in which to combat the current prescription opioid addiction issues. The article concludes that the only way to reduce the number of new Vicodin addiction cases is by limiting the number of prescriptions written on an annual basis. Over the course of the past two decades or so, the rates of prescription drug abuse have continued to climb throughout the US. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, roughly 18 million Americans over the age of 12 misused a prescription medication in the year 2017 alone. The 2017 National Survey on Drug Use and Health found that there were over 2 million first-time prescription pain reliever abusers over the course of the year – this equates to nearly 5,480 initiates every single day. If you believe that you have been suffering from a Vicodin abuse disorder, there are several signs and symptoms to keep an eye out for.

Signs of Vicodin Addiction

  • A lack of attention paid to personal hygiene
  • Continuing to use Vicodin despite an accumulation of personal consequences
  • Forging prescriptions or doctor shopping (attempting to obtain more than one prescription at a time by visiting numerous doctors)
  • Stealing from the medicine cabinets of friends and family members
  • Experiencing intense and overwhelming cravings for Vicodin
  • Engaging in risk-taking behaviors
  • Neglecting personal responsibilities and obligations at home, work or school
  • Isolating from loved ones
  • Mood swings, typically marked by irritability and aggression and short periods of relaxation or euphoria
  • Anxiety and paranoia, sometimes leading to panic attacks
  • Liver and kidney damage
  • Increased physical tolerance, meaning a higher dose of Vicodin is required in order for the same physical and psychological effects to be produced
  • Withdrawal symptoms upon abruptly ceased use

Vicodin Withdrawal – Signs & Symptoms

While the signs and symptoms associated with Vicodin withdrawal are rarely life-threatening, they can be extremely uncomfortable when left untreated. For this reason, medical detox is always a necessary first step on the lifelong road of Vicodin addiction recovery. Some of the more common symptoms associated with Vicodin withdrawal include the following:

Signs & Symptoms of Vicodin Withdrawal

  • Excessive yawning
  • Anxiety and agitation
  • Flu-like symptoms, including runny nose, chills, muscle aches and profuse sweating
  • Insomnia and other sleep-related issues
  • Severe stomach cramping
  • Nausea, vomiting and diarrhea
  • Muscle pain or bone pain

Why is Vicodin Medical Detoxification Necessary?

According to an article published by Healthline on effective Vicodin withdrawal treatment, admission to a medical detox program is necessary in preventing a quick relapse back into drug use. As previously mentioned, while the symptoms of Vicodin withdrawal do not typically present life-threatening complications, they can be so uncomfortable that they drive an individual back to use within the first several hours if he or she is not in a secure, medically monitored environment.

Our team of physicians and addiction specialists utilizes a combination of tapering, Medication Assisted Treatment and therapeutic treatment methodologies to provide the most comprehensive and effective care available. When it comes to treating the symptoms of Vicodin withdrawal, over-the-counter pain relievers and non-addictive sleep aids are typically effective. In cases of extreme Vicodin addiction, tapering is a method that is both utilized and closely overseen by an experienced medical professional.
