OxyContin, or oxycodone, is an agonist opioid that are some of the most effective pain pills available. This narcotic is prescribed to patients experiencing chronic pain. These drugs can provide up to 12 hours of pain relief when used properly. However, when abused, Oxy can be dangerously addictive. When abused, OxyContin enters the body and works by stimulating certain opioid receptors that are located throughout the central nervous system in the brain and spinal cord. When the oxy binds to these receptors, it causes relief from pain, slowed breathing, and in some cases, euphoria. Frequent repeated use causes a tolerance to develop, so larger doses are needed to elicit the desired sensation and the person gets slowly addicted to the drug.

At North Tampa Behavioral Health, we understand how difficult it can be to make a commitment to a rehab program, which may be caused by uncertainty of what a substance abuse treatment program entails or you may be scared of withdrawal.

No matter your concerns, the staff at North Tampa will do everything we can to provide you with kindness in an atmosphere that promotes healing. You no longer have to battle your addiction alone; the experienced staff at North Tampa can help. Pick up the phone and call us today.

Helping a Loved One

How To Help A Loved One Enter Inpatient Rehab for Oxycodone Abuse & Addiction

If someone you love is struggling with an opiate addiction, it’s likely you are struggling with a number of overwhelming emotions and may be at a loss for what you can do help. At times you may feel so helpless you feel it would be easier to just ignore the problem entirely. In the long run, however, this will only make matters worse.

Many individuals become so consumed with their loved one’s addiction that they forget to take care of themselves. It is important that you take care of yourself and get the support you need. Find someone whom you can talk with openly and honestly, such as a close friend or member of the church, about the situation and how you are feeling. There are groups such as Nar-Anon for families coping with addiction. Listening to others can be a huge source of relief and support.

Admitting there is a problem can be hard and painful for everyone involved. However, you are not alone; there are millions of families facing substance abuse each year. When making the decision to talk to your loved one about seeking treatment, it is important to remember a few things. You cannot force someone you love to stop using, the choice is up to them. You can’t expect them to stop using and stay sober without help. Recovery is an ongoing process which requires lots of time and patience. If you do decide to talk to your loved one, make sure you take the time to listen to them and provide them with support as the recovery process is a long hard road.

Types of Therapy

Types of Therapy We Use to Treat Oxycodone Abuse and Addiction

Before you begin treatment, you will first go through a comprehensive medical and psychological assessment. During the assessment process we make sure to gather much information so that we learn to understand you as a complete person instead of just symptoms of your addiction. The information we gather from these assessments will be used to design an optimal treatment plan for all of your needs.

For some patients, medication may be part of the treatment plan. These decisions are made based on recommendations from your treatment team. Medication is most often used during detox in order to help manage the unpleasant symptoms of withdrawal. Additional medication may be used on a long-term basis to help control the symptoms of any co-occurring disorders you may have. As you progress through your recovery process you may be able to be weaned off your medication as you learn different coping strategies. In addition to medication, some of the therapies we offer include:

Detoxification is a process we use for patients that arrive at North Tampa physically dependent on opiates or other substances. The detox process is used to effectively and safely remove all toxic substances from your body, while under constant supervision.

Group Therapy is a major part of the treatment process here at North Tampa as it allows you the opportunity to connect with others who are facing similar circumstances. We offer a combination of process groups, psycho-educational groups, and skills-based groups. Through these groups, you will learn more about addiction and process emotions surrounding your own addiction. Additional groups may include stress management, assertiveness training, social skills training, and effective coping techniques.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has been shown to be an effective technique used with addiction treatment. During CBT, you will explore the negative ways you think and learn how to challenge and replace those thought with more positive ways of looking at the world.

Family consultation is used to identify any problems with in the family dynamic that may have been caused by addiction. A family session is usually held at least one time during your inpatient stay. Family involvement is an important part of the recovery process and is strongly encouraged. Additionally, your family will be connected with appropriate outside resources where they can learn about addiction, the treatment process, and learn to cope with having an addict in the family.

Continuing Care

Continuing Care – What Comes Next?

When your inpatient program comes to an end, you will have already met with a counselor to draw up a discharge plan that will ensure continuity of care. While you may no longer be in the inpatient program, we want to make sure you get the continued support you need.

If you feel that you still need more work and are not ready to leave the structured setting of an inpatient program, a residential program may be an appropriate next step. We can work with you to find a program that will be best suited for your recovery needs. For other men and women, aftercare treatment may include being a part of our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) or our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). These programs are structured much like inpatient programs, but do vary in the hours and days of the week that treatment is provided. These programs also allow you to begin to integrate back into your community.

In the event that you are being discharged home, we will collaborate with local providers to help you set up an appropriate outpatient treatment plan. We will also connect you with community support in your area so that you can continue your treatment and recovery on an outpatient basis.
