Medically Assisted
Vicodin Detoxification

Vicodin is a potent and highly addictive opioid narcotic painkiller, one that is most commonly prescribed for the treatment of moderate or severe pain-related disorders. Vicodin is made from a combination of acetaminophen (an over-the-counter pain reliever most commonly found in medications like Tylenol) and hydrocodone, a potent and habit-forming opioid narcotic. Up until 2014 this medication was labeled as a Schedule III substance by the Drug Enforcement Administration – after recognizing its extremely high potential for abuse, however, Vicodin was changed to a Schedule II chemical substance. Now this medication can only be prescribed by an experienced medical professional for the treatment of significant, short-term pain. Because of the dangers involved with taking this medication for an extended period of time or taking more than the recommended dose for any length of time, Vicodin is only prescribed when absolutely necessary and when no personal or family history of substance abuse is of concern.

At Princeton Detox and Recovery Center we provide men and women of all ages who have been suffering at the hands of a Vicodin abuse disorder of any severity with the opportunity to heal in a safe and secure detox facility – one that consistently prioritizes the comfort and well-being of each individual client. Because this medication is so physically and psychologically addictive, overcoming a substance abuse disorder without professional assistance is all but impossible. We understand the importance of treating all underlying and contributing factors as well as all the physical symptoms associated with withdrawal. To learn more about our comprehensive and highly individualized program of clinical care, feel free to reach out to us at any point in time.

Vicodin Addiction – Signs & Symptoms

The most common symptom of chronic Vicodin abuse is severe and often permanent liver damage. Because this specific medication has such high levels of acetaminophen (which is known to do extensive damage to the liver and other vital organs), repeated use – and taking the medication in higher doses than recommended – can do lasting physical damage.

Other signs and symptoms commonly associated with Vicodin abuse and addiction include physical symptoms like:

  • Excessive drowsiness
  • Dizziness and lightheadedness
  • Feelings of calmness, relaxation and euphoria
  • Anxiety, panic attacks and paranoia 
  • Respiratory depression
  • Lowered blood pressure 
  • Severe stomach cramping 
  • Nausea and vomiting 

And a wide range of behavioral symptoms, such as:

  • Taking more Vicodin than intended for longer periods of time 
  • Attempting to cut back on the amount of Vicodin being taken but being unable to do so for any extended period of time 
  • Experiencing intense psychological Vicodin cravings 
  • Ignoring personal obligations at home, work or school in lieu of Vicodin use 
  • Continuing to use Vicodin despite an accumulation of personal consequences
  • Paying little or no attention to personal health and hygiene 
  • Isolating from friends and family members 
  • Raiding medicine cabinets and visiting numerous doctors in hopes of obtaining more than one Vicodin prescription at one time 
  • Developing a physical and psychological tolerance 
  • Experiencing symptoms of withdrawal whenever Vicodin use is abruptly stopped

Vicodin Withdrawal – Signs & Symptoms

According to an article written by a medical professional and published by Very Well Mind, there are two main stages of Vicodin withdrawal – the early stage and the late stage. The early stage of Vicodin withdrawal concerns less severe symptoms, while during the later stage both the psychological and physical symptoms become more severe.

Early Vicodin withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Anxiety and agitation
  • Muscle aches 
  • Insomnia and other sleep-related issues 
  • Flu-like symptoms, including chills, a low-grade fever, a runny nose, watery eyes, stomach cramping and headache
  • Profuse sweating 
  • General feelings of physical discomfort 

Late Vicodin withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Severe abdominal cramping
  • Nausea, vomiting and diarrhea
  • Chills and goosebumps 
  • Severe psychological symptoms which could include anxiety and depression
  • An inability to get comfortable 
  • More severe insomnia and persistent, disruptive nightmares 

The length of Vicodin withdrawal depends heavily on the severity of the substance abuse disorder, but in most cases symptoms begin to subside within the first week. At Princeton Detox and Recovery Center we effectively treat all of the symptoms associated with early and late stage Vicodin withdrawal in a safe, structured and supportive environment that is conducive to comprehensive healing.

Why is Medical Detox Necessary?

The US National Library of Medicine explains that during 2018 alone there were over 11.4 million American adults who abused pain medications like Vicodin without a prescription. Clearly, prescription drug abuse has become a major public health crisis. Sadly, the majority of men and women who are in desperate need of professional treatment do not receive the help they require – many times, this is simply because they remain unaware of the resources that are available to them. At Princeton Detox and Recovery Center we believe that medically monitored detox should be available to all those who seek it. Our main priority is to make the entire process of receiving the care you need and deserve as simple and stress-free as possible. Our comprehensive detox program provides an unmatched quality of clinical care with the services necessary to maintain sobriety for years to come.

The severity of associated withdrawal symptoms depends on a variety of personal factors, including the severity of the addictive disorder, the length of time that the substance was being abused and the presence of any underlying mental health conditions. However, medical detox is always a necessary first step. We utilize a wide range of proven detoxification methods and therapeutic techniques to provide a safe and pain-free withdrawal while paving the road for lifelong addiction recovery.
