Focused Treatment
Medically Assisted Percocet Detox

Do you think you or your loved one might need a Percocet detox? At Guardian Recovery Network we remain dedicated to providing men and women of all ages with a safe and pain-free Percocet withdrawal as we help lay a solid foundation for lasting sobriety. Percocet is a potent and highly habit-forming opioid narcotic, one that can lead to physical and psychological dependence even when taken exactly as prescribed. Percocet is one of the medications responsible for what has become widely known as a “nationwide opioid epidemic.” Every year, hundreds of men and women lose their lives to prescription drug-related overdose, and the rates of prescription drug addiction have continued to climb among members of every demographic.

Part of what makes medications like Percocet so addictive is the potential to experience severe symptoms of withdrawal when use is stopped abruptly. According to an article published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, men and women who were prescribed Percocet after surgery and took the medication for two or more weeks experienced withdrawal symptoms when they discontinued use even though they had used the medication as prescribed.

Once a strong physical dependence has been formed, the symptoms of Percocet withdrawal can be so agonizing that even when an individual wants to quit, they keep resorting to using the drug just to avoid the pain. If you or someone you love has been abusing Percocet or any other prescription opioid, seeking treatment in a medically monitored detox facility is critical.

Additionally, Percocet is a combination of oxycodone (a powerful opioid) and acetaminophen (the active ingredient in over-the-counter pain reliever Tylenol) 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. So detoxing off of Percocet as soon as possible could save an individual irreversible damage.

About Percocet

Even when an individual takes Percocet exactly as it is prescribed, for a pain-related issue, he or she runs the risk of developing a dependence over time. Dependence produces many side effects.

Side Effects of Percocet Dependence:

  • Excessive drowsiness
  • Memory problems
  • Issues related to cognitive functioning
  • Bone problems
  • Cardiac issues
  • Chronic constipation
  • Decreased testosterone

Percocet is currently labeled as a Schedule II chemical substance under the federal Drug Enforcement Administration, meaning that it has an exceptionally high potential for abuse and that regular use (even when using the medication as intended) can lead to physical and psychological dependence. If you or someone you care about has been abusing this medication — or any other habit-forming prescription drug — Guardian Recovery Network is available to help. Our medical detox programs offer a comfortable Percocet withdrawal while preparing clients to smoothly transition into the next appropriate level of clinical care.

Percocet Addiction
Signs & Symptoms

Signs & symptoms of Percocet addiction include:

  • Using more Percocet than intended for a longer period of time than intended
  • Continuing to use Percocet despite an accumulation of personal consequences
  • Attempting to cut back on the dose or quit altogether but being unable to do so
  • Compromised performance at work or at school and a lack of motivation to take care of personal responsibilities
  • Isolation from friends and family members
  • Engaging in drug-seeking behaviors, like attempting to obtain more than one written Percocet prescription at a time
  • An increase in risk-taking behaviors
  • Spending a significant amount of time obtaining, using and recovering from the effects of Percocet
  • Experiencing legal or financial issues as a direct result of excessive Percocet use
  • Being advised to stop using Percocet but continuing use regardless
  • Developing a physical tolerance
  • Experincing physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms when Percocet use is stopped suddenly

Percocet Withdrawal
Signs & Symptoms

The symptoms associated with Perocet withdrawal generally begin within the first 6 to 12 hours after the last dose, and last for between one and two weeks depending on the severity of the substance abuse disorder.

Percocet withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Excessive yawning
  • Runny nose and watery eyes
  • Symptoms that mimic a bad flu
  • Irritability and agitation
  • Other mood disturbances
  • Anxiety and panic attacks/hyperventilation
  • Restlessness
  • Trouble sleeping/insomnia
  • Severe abdominal cramping
  • Nausea, vomiting and diarrhea
  • Body tremors and uncontrollable shaking
  • Joint pain and muscle cramping
  • Changes to blood pressure
  • Rapid heart rate

These symptoms can be effectively treated in a medical Percocet detox facility. It is important to avoid attempting to quit Percocet on your own. Attempting to quit cold turkey or in an at-home setting can result in serious health-related complications. Additionally, individuals who attempt to quit on their own rarely stay sober long-term. The psychological cravings often prove to be too overwhelming without adequate treatment.

Is Percocet Detox Necessary?

When it comes to Percocet abuse and dependence, medically monitored detox is most often the necessary first step on the lifelong road to recovery. Some people might attempt to quit cold turkey or detox in an at-home setting. Doing so can easily result in a wide range of health-related complications, and often leads to a return to Percocet use. Withdrawal symptoms can be so agonizing that an individual may start using again before they’ve even detoxed. At Guardian Recovery Network we provide our clients with 24-hour access to effective medical care and ensure a pain-free withdrawal by effectively treating all related symptoms. We tackle the physical, mental and emotional implications of addiction simultaneously.

While the most effective treatment option varies on a person-to-person basis, we often utilize a combination of tapering, Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) and intensive therapy when it comes to treating Percocet withdrawal. If a client comes to us with a severe Percocet abuse disorder we slowly wean them off of the medication over time in order to prevent the more serious symptoms of withdrawal. We might utilize medications like Suboxone and Subutex to alleviate physical discomfort while reducing psychological cravings. In the case pf psychological symptoms or pre-existing mental illness, we may prescribe an antidepressant or anti-anxiety medication. We also provide standard medications for pain relief and sleep-related issues. Many men and women who abuse Percocet were originally prescribed the medication to treat a legitimate pain-related disorder. For these reason we also place a strong emphasis on safe and non-invasive pain management techniques.
