    Hydrocodone Addiction Treatment

    There are a variety of treatment options for hydrocodone addiction. Recovery begins with medical detox to remove the drugs from the addicted person’s system. The next steps include counseling, support groups and rehab

    Detox centers, many of which are located at inpatient treatment centers, help people overcome withdrawal symptoms and cravings. Inpatient or residential treatment is generally considered the most effective way for individuals to overcome addiction. Typical inpatient programs include attending group therapy, individual psychotherapy sessions, family therapy, and other therapeutic offerings such as yoga, art, and music therapy. There is typically a doctor available for any medical care that may be needed. This is especially important for individuals who need extra monitoring due to having co-occurring medical conditions, such as hypertension, diabetes, or seizures. Many treatment centers can effectively treat a hydrocodone addiction.

    The First Step of Recovery

    Detox is the first step to beating a hydrocodone addiction. A supervised detox provides a safe way to get the drugs out an addicted person’s system while keeping withdrawal symptoms to a minimum. Nausea, sweating and muscle aches are all common hydrocodone withdrawal symptoms.

    It can take up to seven days to complete detox for hydrocodone withdrawal.

    Medication-Assisted Therapy for Hydrocodone Addiction

    Maintaining full recovery after a hydrocodone detox often requires medication-assisted therapy (MAT). Medications for withdrawal are used to reduce the physical and psychological symptoms of withdrawal as well as cravings. MAT for opioids such as hydrocodone is used to assist with reducing the risk of relapse.

    Buprenorphine for Withdrawals

    Buprenorphine was approved for the treatment of opioid dependence by the Food and Drug Administration in 2002. There are a number of buprenorphine drugs that are used for treating dependence, including Subutex, Suboxone, Zubsolv, Sublocade, and several generic brands. These medications range in method of administration and some contain the ingredient naloxone, which is used to reverse the effects of opioids. Buprenorphine is most typically found in a tablet that dissolves under the tongue. In most cases buprenorphrine is taken between 3 and 7 times a week. It is useful for detox and long-term treatment.

    Subutex

    This medication is pure buprenorphine and its main purpose is to ease withdrawal symptoms. It is also approved to relieve mild to moderate pain in patient’s who are non-opioid dependent or tolerant. It does this by interacting with the same receptors in the brain affected by hydrocodone, producing similar effects.

    Suboxone

    This is a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone, is also used to treat withdrawal symptoms. The addition of naloxone helps block the effects of hydrocodone. Naloxone is commonly used to reverse the effects of an opioid overdose.

    Naltrexone for Cravings

    Naltrexone is an opioid-blocking medication used for the maintenance of addiction recovery. It has been used for treating addictions to opioids and alcohol. This medication is generally part of inpatient treatment after detox is completed and in outpatient recovery.

    By blocking opioid receptors, naltrexone prevents hydrocodone from having a euphoric effect. In theory, this should discourage addicts from taking hydrocodone. This treatment is only useful for those who truly want to recover, as it is the patient’s responsibility to take the medication. It is also due to the high-risk of accidental overdose if one relapses while taking Naltrexone. This is because many individuals who take Naltrexone and relapse end up using extremely large quantities of hydrocodone in an attempt to counteract the effects of the Naltrexone. When this occurs, the body is at high-risk of overdose due to the individual using large quantities of hydrocodone at once.

    Inpatient and Outpatient Hydrocodone Rehab

    Residential programs include all the tools for a successful recovery. The first step is often a controlled, medical management of withdrawal symptoms. Residential programs also have individual and group therapy to help people tackle the reasons they used in the past.

    Outpatient rehabilitation programs allow people to start or continue recovery without putting a hold on their life. Different programs vary tremendously in scope but there are broad categories. Partial hospitalization programs (PHPs) typically meet 5-7 days a week for 6-8 hours a day and often include boarding options. Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) typically meet 3-5 days a week for 3 hours a day. Standard outpatient programs (OPs) typically involve one group session a week and one individual session a week.

    Although outpatient treatment programs can be successful, they may not be enough for people with an intense hydrocodone addiction.
