Opioid addiction has increased by more than 500%
Opioid addiction has skyrocketed, with rates soaring by more than 500% in just seven years. Oxycodone is a powerful opioid painkiller. In the short term, it can alleviate pain and make life manageable. With prolonged use, addiction becomes almost inevitable. Most people who are addicted to Oxycodone have or once had a valid medical prescription. Over time, however, they grow dependent on these drugs. Some turn to drugs such as heroin when opioids are no longer available. Others do anything they can to maintain access to opioids.
If you’re addicted to Oxycodone, or worried you might be, we can help. Addiction is a complex disease that demands a multifaceted solution. From your first day of detox through the entire journey to sobriety, we’re here to help. Our West Palm Beach Oxycodone addiction program is the only one in the area offering NAD/Brain Restoration+ therapy. You deserve the best, and that’s exactly what we offer you.
Addicts often feel ashamed of their addiction. This shame can deter them from seeking treatment, and lure them into progressively deeper denial. Don’t allow this to happen to you. The truth is that addiction is a medical condition no different from heart disease or cancer. It’s not your fault. It’s not your choice. After all, who would choose the pain of addiction?
Addiction begins with tolerance. As you use more and more Oxycodone, your body begins to tolerate its effects. This means you have to use more to get the same effects you once got with a lower dose. Using more cultivates dependency. This occurs when your body begins to view being high as normal, and treats Oxycodone as something it needs to survive. This dependency is the foundation upon which addiction is built. It changes your body and brain and makes it very difficult to tolerate the effects of quitting Oxycodone.
Addiction looks different in every addict. Some are able to hold down jobs and sustain relationships. Others see their entire lives shattered. Even if you think you’re OK, addiction eventually will take much from you. So don’t allow denial to prevent you from getting the treatment you need and deserve. You can be an addict with a prescription. You can be an addict if you don’t get high. Look for these signs:
Because your body and mind are dependent on Oxycodone, they are convinced that you literally need the drug to survive. So Oxycodone is no different from food or water. Think about how your body would react if you stopped eating or drinking. That’s similar to how your body will react to the removal of Oxycodone.
This makes it easier to understand why addicts keep using.
Our revolutionary Brain Restoration Plus program changes this. The secret is NAD. NAD is a coenzyme necessary for numerous cellular reactions. Healthy cells make up a healthy body, and NAD restores health to your cells.
We know that addicts often have low NAD levels. This could be because low NAD is a risk factor for addiction. It could be that addiction depletes NAD stores. Or it could be both. No matter the explanation, restoring NAD can restore the brain to its normal, healthy state.
We also know that NAD plays a role in neurotransmitter health. Neurotransmitters are brain chemicals that help send signals. When these important chemicals are out of balance, it’s hard to think clearly, feel happy, and sustain motivation. By restoring normal NAD levels, we help restore health neurotransmitters, promoting sound mental health and making the detox journey less difficult.
Detox is hard. And once it’s over, Oxycodone will be out of your system. That doesn’t mean the journey is over. Addiction is a chronically relapsing illness. This means that once you become an addict, you will always be vulnerable to addiction.
The right addiction program addresses your spiritual, mental health, and social needs to give you a fighting chance against addiction. That’s exactly what we offer. We help you understand why and how you became an addict. Then we offer you the coping skills you need to manage the stress of life and the temptation to use.
In so doing, we give you the best possible chance at sobriety. It’s what you need. It’s what you deserve. So quit fighting a losing battle. Don’t go it alone. We can help. All you need to do is pick up the phone. We’re ready to help you today.
