Opioid Withdrawal Medication Group


OxyContin is a potent, controlled-release prescription painkiller that is prone to abuse when misused. When taken in high doses, OxyContin can provide a blissful high that causes some individuals to crave the drug and become addicted to its effects.

As a time-release formulation, OxyContin works slowly over several hours. However, tampering with the tablets by crushing, snorting, or injecting them damages the time-release mechanism, allowing the user to experience the full effectand the highimmediately.

Balancing the euphoric, short-term effects are the unpleasant and potentially dangerous long-term side effects, including cognitive impairment and confusion, headaches, nausea and dizziness, breathing difficulties, and heart failure. Overdosing can result in death.

Are you or a loved one suffering from OxyContin addiction? Here are OxyContin addiction signs of which you should be aware:

  • Intense cravings for the drug
  • Needing larger and larger doses over time
  • Thinking about getting and taking your next dose
  • Lack of success in reducing or curtailing use
  • Depression
  • Impaired thinking
  • Ignoring usual activities and social situations
  • Continuing to use despite problems at work or school, negative physical effects, and psychological issues


Individuals who wish to quit using OxyContin should not attempt detoxification alone. Medically supervised detox is the first step in OxyContin addiction treatment, and a reputable OxyContin recovery and detox program offers the professional and medical support you need to end your dependence on this highly addictive, dangerous drug.

The staff at Buena Vista offers a medically monitored OxyContin detox program that helps patients get through the highly distressing withdrawal symptoms with the least amount of discomfort.

Withdrawal symptoms range from mild to severe based on many factors. These include how long you’ve been taking the drug, the dosage you’ve been taking, and other medical conditions or addictions you have. For example, those who have taken the drug longer and in higher doses experience the most severe symptoms. 

Our board-certified physicians and highly qualified OxyContin rehab nurses help you get through withdrawal symptoms that may include:

  • Nausea, vomiting and/or diarrhea
  • Muscle aches and pains
  • Agitation and anxiety
  • Severe depression
  • Dilated pupils
  • Tearing eyes and/or runny nose
  • Insomnia
  • Fever
  • Sweating
  • Excessive yawning

Since these withdrawal symptoms can become painful or uncomfortable, many patients struggle to go “cold turkey” on their own. They may relapse to avoid further withdrawal symptoms. Unfortunately, this only continues the destructive cycle of OxyContin addiction

By choosing OxyContin addiction treatment at Buena Vista, you’ll eliminate the possibility of relapse during the detox process. Our staff will help keep you safe and as comfortable as possible.


Buena Vista works with most insurance providers. However, in rare instances where we’re not considered an in-network provider, our team will help you find a placement that is. Breaking the cycle of addiction is difficult, but you don’t need to go at it alone. We’re here to help.

Detox is a crucial first step in achieving long-term sobriety and regaining control of your life. However, it’s only the first step. A medically supervised detox will help eliminate the drug from your body, but it doesn’t provide the coping mechanisms or support you’ll need to combat lingering psychological addiction symptoms or address the causes of your OxyContin addiction

Once your detox is complete, continued rehabilitative treatment via behavioral therapy programs is strongly advised to maintain your successful sobriety. Buena Vista offers many OxyContin addiction treatment options. These include counseling, professional monitoring, and individual and group therapies for OxyContin abuse treatment that will help you achieve the recovery you’re seeking.
