What is OxyContin?
OxyContin is the brand name for oxycodone, one of the most commonly abused prescription opioids in the country. Oxycodone is the primary ingredient found in many types of opioids and is referred to as a painkiller because of its history of treating moderate to severe pain. OxyContin has a controlled-release formula that can provide pain relief for up to 12 hours, though people who abuse it will typically crush and snort it or inject it to gain immediate pleasant effects.
OxyContin has often been prescribed to treat the following ailments and conditions:
- After major surgery
- Broken bones
- Chronic headaches
OxyContin produces a pleasant high—like other opioids—that people find alluring, and because opioids are highly addictive, people only need to use it a few times before beginning to develop a tolerance to it. Other side effects associated with OxyContin use include sweating, drowsiness, constricted pupils, and dry mouth.
Symptoms of OxyContin & Opioid Addiction
As is the case with all types of drug abuse, one of the immediate signs that you’re beginning to have an OxyContin abuse problem is when your body develops a tolerance to the drug. This happens when you begin needing more painkillers to achieve the same high, which can lead to your brain being altered over time. If you’ve reached a point where you can’t go a day without taking OxyContin or feel that you need the drug to feel “normal,” it’s possible you have an addiction.
Other known signs of OxyContin and opioid addiction include:
- Risky behaviors
- Doctor shopping to acquire more OxyContin
- Stealing, lying, or borrowing money from others to purchase OxyContin
- Crushing or chewing tablets to achieve a greater high
- Neglecting personal responsibilities
- Poor performance in work or school
- Legal problems
- Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when you’re not using OxyContin
Find Your Hope with Us
It’s important to know that addiction, including OxyContin addiction, looks different for each person. Many people with painkiller addictions don’t intend to develop them—they may accidentally develop over time long after they’ve ceased needing them to treat their pain. You may not even realize you have a problem until your relationships start to become strained or you begin having financial problems because of the money you’re spending finding and purchasing OxyContin.
Fortunately, you don’t have to wait for your life to fall apart to get help. Our facility offers faith-based addiction treatment, meaning your journey towards sobriety is rooted in Christ. When all else fails and you feel alone, God is here to support you—as is our team of compassionate recovery experts. We’ve been in your shoes before and are living examples of our belief that healing is possible.
