Medically Assisted
Percocet Detoxification

Percocet, a potent and potentially addictive opioid painkiller, is made with a combination of oxycodone and acetaminophen – the active ingredient found in over-the-counter pain medications like Tylenol. Because this specific medication has such a high potential for abuse, most medical professionals only prescribe it to be taken for a short period of time. Percocet is also a short-term solution for severe, acute pain because one of the main ingredients – acetaminophen – has been shown to lead to severe and permanent liver damage. Percocet is currently listed as a Schedule II chemical substance by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), meaning that it is potent and addictive. Prescription drug abuse and addiction have long-since been considered major public health concerns, causing thousands of overdose-related deaths on an annual basis. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, roughly 18 million American adults abused a prescription medication in the year 2017 alone. During this same year, roughly 2 million adults abused a prescription opioid like Percocet for the first time. High rates of abuse are largely attributed to the frequency with which these medications are prescribed and the ease of access – many first time Percocet abusers find the chemical substance in the medicine cabinets of close friends and family members.

If you or a loved one has been suffering at the hands of a Percocet abuse disorder of any severity, seeking professional addiction treatment is necessary – and medical detox is a mandatory first step on every road to recovery. Princeton Detox and Recovery Center is dedicated to providing the most comprehensive and personalized medical and clinical care available. We treat men and women of all ages in New Jersey, the surrounding areas and throughout the United States. If you are looking to begin living a life beyond addiction, simply give us a call to find out more about our medical Percocet detox program.

Percocet Addiction – Signs & Symptoms

Individuals who are struggling with a prescription opioid addiction typically present a wide range of physical, psychological and behavioral symptoms.

Common symptoms associated with Percocet abuse and addiction include:

  • Drowsiness and fatigue
  • Dizziness and lightheadedness
  • Abdominal pain 
  • Nausea, vomiting and diarrhea 
  • Persistent headaches 
  • Attempting to cut back on the amount of Percocet being taken, but being unsuccessful in restricting or quitting use 
  • A lack of attention paid to personal hygienic practices
  • A lack of interest in activities that were previously enjoyed 
  • Issues at home, work or school that can be directly attributed to Percocet use 
  • Interpersonal issues – problems with family members, close friends and coworkers 
  • Financial and legal problems that result from Percocet abuse and an increase in risk-taking behaviors 
  • Stealing unused medications from the medicine cabinets of friends, family members and acquaintances 
  • “Doctor shopping,” meaning attempting to obtain more than one Percocet prescription at a time 
  • Developing a physical tolerance, meaning that a higher dose of Percocet is required in order for the same physical and psychological effects to be produced 
  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms as soon as the prescription runs out or as soon as Percocet is no longer being taken daily

These are only several examples of the many symptoms that go hand-in-hand with Percocet abuse. If you have been abusing this potent opioid narcotic for any amount of time, seeking medically monitored detox is a logical first step.

Percocet Withdrawal – Signs & Symptoms

Percocet withdrawal typically takes place in two stages. During the early stage of withdrawal the symptoms are less severe – this stage usually lasts for between three days and one week. Once the late stage withdrawal symptoms take hold they are more severe and uncomfortable, and generally last for up to two weeks depending on the severity of the addictive disorder.

Common symptoms associated with Percocet withdrawal include:

  • Profuse sweating 
  • Flu-like symptoms, including runny nose, watery eyes, stomach cramping, headache, fatigue, chills and an inability to get comfortable 
  • Insomnia and other significant sleep-related disturbances
  • Aches and pains 
  • Nausea, vomiting and diarrhea
  • Irritability and agitation 
  • Severe anxiety, which can lead to panic attacks when untreated 
  • Depressed mood 
  • Body tremors
  • Restlessness; an inability to sit still

Why is Medical Detox Necessary for Percocet Addiction?

When it comes to Percocet withdrawal, entering into a medical detox facility soon after the lost dose is taken is of the utmost importance. At Princeton Detox and Recovery Center our team of experienced staff members have decades of combined professional experience treating all potential symptoms of Percocet withdrawal as soon as they arise. We utilize a careful combination of proven medical detox methods in conjunction with effective therapeutic and holistic treatment methodologies. In the case of prescription opioids, we commonly employ tapering and Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT). Tapering means that the amount of the chemical substance present in the bloodstream is slowly reduced, and the process is closely overseen by a medical doctor to ensure that the more severe symptoms of physical withdrawal are being effectively eliminated. Simultaneously, we administer harmless and beneficial medications like buprenorphine or Naltrexone, which help alleviate physical withdrawal symptoms while greatly reducing the psychological cravings that often lead to relapse.

Our Simple Admissions Process

At Princeton Detox and Recovery Center we understand how overwhelming the admissions process may seem for our clients and their loved ones. We also understand that dealing with the financial components of medical detox and smoothing out all of the finer details might actually deter some individuals from seeking and receiving the help they need. For this reason, we have been completely dedicated to making our entire admissions process as simple, stress-free and straightforward as possible, from start to finish. Simply give us a call and we will conduct a brief pre-assessment over the phone. We will ask a series of simple questions to help us determine whether or not medical detox is the most appropriate level of clinical care for you and your unique needs. Once the pre-assessment is complete we conduct a free, no obligation insurance benefit check. If you are currently insured through a major health insurance provider there is a very good chance that your entire detox experience is covered. However, if you are underinsured or entirely underinsured, we still work with you closely to help figure out a viable plan and ensure that you are receiving the quality care you need and deserve regardless of your current financial circumstances. Once the financial aspect is covered we set to work developing a time and a date for your intake as well as stress-free travel plans.
