Vicodin Rehab Treatment Program in Orange County, CA
Vicodin addiction treatment requires a unique approach that our rehab facility offers. Vicodin is a legal prescription drug making it very addictive for people who are prescribed it after a surgery.
Vicodin Addiction typically occurs gradually in users who are often originally prescribed the medication by a trusted physician to cope with pain from an injury or after a surgery. The men and women who arrive in Newport Beach to receive rehab treatment from us after becoming addicted to vicodin have sometimes used alcohol their entire lives responsibly and never tried illegal drugs. Vicodin addiction is nonetheless a very serious phenomenon with potentially fatal effects (especially when combined with alcohol abuse) and that is why we call prescription medication addiction the invisible epidemic.

Vicodin Use Becomes Abuse and Finally a
Users can become physically and psychologically addicted to vicodin, which at first reduces pain and relaxes both the physical body and the mind. Vicodin addiction is extremely common among prescription drug users, most likely because it is readily prescribed for many different types of pain problems.
Once someone has finished their initial prescription they might become irritable and manufacture excuses to obtain prescriptions for vicodin.
Often the adult begins to exhibit the typical signs of chemical dependency including withdrawal, anger, denial, and obsession about obtaining more of the drug they are addicted to or a substitute like oxycontin (oxycodone), percocet, percodan, lorcet, lortab, or norco.
The adult may purchase more of the drug online, or even travel across country borders to obtain more vicodin or other prescription painkillers cheaply and in large quantities. The addicted user is now engaging in illegal behavior and runs the risk of being prosecuted for serious crimes.
