Oxycodone Detox Center
Oxycodone is an opiate used as the primary agent in prescription depressant drugs such as OxyContin. It is a narcotic which causes a euphoric high and relief of moderate to severe pain and can, therefore, lead to both dependence and addiction.
Abusers of the drug are at risk of moving onto something stronger as tolerance to oxycodone grows and the search for a bigger and better high becomes all-consuming. We know how to ease withdrawal symptoms from oxycodone.
Why medical detox?
Two of the biggest worries about oxycodone use are the use of the drug as a gateway, and relapse after addiction detox. The risk that the user will develop a taste for something stronger is real. Untreated users of oxycodone are 40 times more likely to develop a heroin abuse problem.
The risk of relapse is also very strong for oxycodone users. Once they become accustom to the effects, it is hard to quell the yearnings.
Medical detox is essential in safely and comfortably reducing the oxycodone in a client’s system. Allied with nutrition, sleep and group therapies, our goal is to set each client on the path to a full recovery.
Risk of relapse
Relapse after withdrawal from oxycodone greatly increases the risk of a life-threatening overdose. After detox, the body is no longer accustomed to the drug and if used at the same level as before, it can quickly overwhelm the system.
Combined education, therapies and detox
At Boca Detox Center, we address all aspects of addiction and/or dependence. Medically supervised detox will remove the drug from your system safely and as comfortably as possible. Once the acute phase of withdrawal has passed, we believe in a mix of education and therapy to further the recovery process. Education on what the drug does to the body and why you feel the way you do when using is imperative so that clients are better able to resist it going forward.
Dealing with withdrawal symptoms
The withdrawal symptoms related to oxycodone addiction can include an array of the following: intense flu-like symptoms, sleeping difficulties, kicking behaviors, anxiety, teary eyes, yawning, muscle contractions, abdominal spasms, dilated pupils, bad temper, loss of appetite, and nausea.
While withdrawal is typically not a pleasant experience, our skilled staff has years of experience managing the symptoms within a structured program that encompasses all aspects of recovery. We work with each individual to create a personalized plan appropriate to their specific needs.
Oxycodone is misused because of the lofty feeling that it gives the user. During withdrawal, the chemicals in the brain that are associated with positive emotions and motivation are at below normal levels and need time to redevelop. At Boca Detox, clients receive appropriate therapies to help deal with the negative feelings they encounter. Do not try detox from oxycodone at home.

The center at Boca Detox has been designed to increase our client’s success. Our clinical rooms are state-of-the-art, while our client’s rooms are comfortable and relaxing. The clinic is set on private, lush, tropical grounds in the discreet and tranquil south Florida.
