Percocet Detoxification: What Are The Withdrawal Symptoms?

Percocet detoxification is needed when a person has developed a dependence on Percocet. Percocet is a combination of acetaminophen and oxycodone and is used to treat moderate to severe pain. Due to the strong nature of the drug, addiction can develop quickly and can be extremely difficult. Once a person is addicted, Percocet detoxification is the first step towards recovery.When an individual who is addicted to Percocet tries to stop using, they can experience severe withdrawal symptoms due to the strength of the opiate it is made with, oxycodone. Withdrawal symptoms will be similar to those of other opiates and can cause major medical complications when not treated properly. Withdrawal symptoms can include a wide range of things including aches and pains, insomnia, runny nose or eyes, nausea, sweats and chills, restlessness, diarrhea, anxiety and more. Withdrawal symptoms be can painful and stressful and oftentimes lead to relapse due to their intensity. Going to Percocet detoxification can help individuals get through withdrawal and successfully complete the detoxification process so that they can continue on to the next phase in recovery. 

During Percocet detoxification, clients will be given medication that will help them with the painful withdrawal symptoms they may experience as well as the anxiety and stress they may be feeling. Their dosage will be closely monitored by the Percocet detoxification staff and tapered as clients progress until they are taking as little as possible. Clients will also be monitored continuously by medical professionals to ensure their safety and deal with any complications that arise during withdrawal. Percocet detoxification generally lasts 5-7 days but will depend on the client and their level of addiction.

When a person first enters a Percocet detoxification program, they will be evaluated for withdrawal symptoms and a full medical history will be taken. Every client will have a slightly different experience during detoxification based on their individual health, mental health and age, as well as length and severity of their addiction.  For this reason, it is paramount to choose a Percocet detoxification program that tailors every client’s Percocet detoxification plan to his or her individual needs. Percocet detoxification is not a one size fits all process and should be based on and adjusted to client’s needs and progress throughout the process.

There are many options when looking for a Percocet detoxification program for you or your loved one. Some people choose to attend outpatient Percocet detoxification over inpatient. In an outpatient setting, clients attend scheduled meetings but are able to live at home. Although this works for some individuals, inpatient detoxification provides numerous benefits such as around-the-clock medical care, client support and education.
