Percocet treatment, do I really need it? If this is something you are asking yourself, it is time that you became informed about the addiction associated with this narcotic. As with any narcotic, percocet does have a risk of being addictive. However, this does not mean you abused the drug; it is just the nature of the drug. Then again, if you are the type to jump from doctor to doctor just to get percocet prescriptions, you are abusing the drug and are probably addicted. Either way, to decide if percocet treatment is what you need, you must learn about the narcotic and then you can learn what course of action you must take.
The Watershed is a rehabilitation center that offers quality percocet treatment programs. We can answer any questions you may have about the narcotic and help you decide what needs to be done to help you. If you or a loved one is asking the question “do I need percocet treatment” please call The Watershed today at 1-800-861-1768.
Understanding Your Addiction Before Treatment
To answer your question of if you need percocet treatment or not, you will need to consider a few things. One of the first things you will need to consider is how long you have been taking your percocet. Anytime you take percocet, or any narcotic, for a prolonged period of time or in high doses (high dose therapy); your body becomes accustomed to it and begins to build a tolerance to it. This means you will need higher doses to feel what you felt originally or, in some cases, to not feel the pain. This is known as dependency or addiction. On the same note, you may also feel withdrawal symptoms if you miss a dose or two or suddenly stop taking your percocet. Usually, this means that you need percocet treatment because your body and mind has become dependent on your drug, because even if you are no longer in pain, you may still be taking the percocet.
Understanding Addiction During Percocet Treatment
Being informed means you have knowledge and having knowledge means you have power. At The Watershed, we want to keep you informed from the very start. This means having a say in your percocet treatment plan and knowing what it entails. As mentioned above, there are essentially two ways to become addicted to percocet, which are through prolonged or high dose use or through abusing it. During your percocet treatment at The Watershed we will explore the reasons behind your addiction so that you may go through the process of recovery.
Addiction, in any form, is a multi-faced disease. This means that there is the physical addiction, the mental addiction, all the reasons and triggers that led you to your addiction, and your family’s role in your addiction. During your percocet treatment, we will offer you a chance to heal all areas of your addiction through offering treatments such as individualized family and individual therapies, relapse prevention, group meetings, life assessment, meeting with social workers and recovery coaches, and so much more. Each program you attend during your percocet treatment at The Watershed is designed to treat a different aspect of your addiction. To begin learning about your percocet addiction, please call The Watershed at 1-800-861-1768, to speak with one of our caring staff members.
Dealing With Pain During Percocet Rehabilitation
Unless you have a chronic illness or some other ailment that causes chronic pain, more than likely, by the time you became addicted to percocet, you no longer needed the narcotic. When used in short term intervals, narcotics have a lower risk of being addictive, it is only after prolonged use that addiction becomes an issue. Hence, there may not be an issue of dealing with the reason that led you to percocet during your percocet treatment. However, if you truly need pain killers consistently, at The Watershed there are fully qualified MDs, psychiatrists, and therapists to help treat whatever medical and mental issues you may have along with your addiction. At The Watershed, you are in capable hands.
Dealing with pain during your percocet treatment does not refer only to physical pain. It also refers to the emotional and spiritual pain that comes during your rehabilitation process. You can no longer depend on your percocet to hide everything you are feeling. It is only you, in your most vulnerable and raw form, dealing with the reality of your situation. You can allow The Watershed to ease some of your pain and stress with comfortable amenities and quality treatments through calling us at 1-800-861-1768.
Life Following Your Percocet Treatment
Believe it or not, life following your percocet treatment may be difficult in the beginning. Even though the last part of your percocet treatment at The Watershed consists of sober living, which is a house (outside of the center) where you live to ease back into society, there is still a difference between staying at The Watershed and being at home. You will have to adjust to being at home while sober. You will have to relearn how to deal with daily life. However, during your percocet rehabilitation at The Watershed, we encourage family involvement so that everyone can heal and the dynamics of your family can change into something healthier. This means that, following your percocet treatment, your family will know how to help you adjust once you return home. You can expect a life of sobriety, but just know that it will take some adjustment back in the real world.
