When used as prescribed by a doctor’s instructions, prescription painkillers like Percocet provide extreme relief for those who are struggling with moderate to severe pain. While these medications absolutely have a space in the medical field, they must be used with caution because they are highly addictive. Known for the euphoric, relaxed state they produce when abused, prescription painkillers including Percocet are adding to the increased rise in opioid-related overdoses over recent years.
When an individual develops a dependency on Percocet, he or she will suffer destructive consequences that will only get worse over time. Damages to one’s emotional, physical, and psychological health will make functioning at home, school, and work very hard. When an individual has been abusing Percocet, he or she will eventually need to consume more of the substance and in more frequent doses in order to obtain the desired effects. When this happens, it is believed that the individual has developed a tolerance to Percocet, and it is a key indicator that he or she is struggling with an addiction.
At The Camp Recovery Center, we recognize the pain and suffering that comes along with a Percocet addiction, and our programming is offered with unwavering support and compassionate treatment. Our personalized rehabilitation plans are made up of evidence-based therapeutic modalities, and are individualized to each person who engages in our programming. When an individual has been trapped in the grips of Percocet dependence, he or she might feel a sense of isolation because substance abuse tends to encourage an individual to withdraw from people and things that were once important. However, by reaching out to the team at our rehab center, you will find that you are not alone in your struggles, and that a life of sobriety can be achieved with the appropriate supports.
Helping a Loved One or Family Member Get Treatment
Watching a loved one or family member struggle with the destructive effects that Percocet addiction leads to is not an easy task. Unable to properly advocate for him or herself, the individual might require your support in order to obtain the strength to access the care that can save his or her life. If you have not personally experienced chemical dependence, you can benefit from obtaining a stronger understanding of the disease of addiction, and take the time needed to research the ways in which Percocet abuse can impact one’s well-being. In addition, research different options for treatment that have proven effective in helping individuals overcome their particular type of addiction. When you have obtained this information, share it with your loved one in a non-judgmental manner, and encourage him or her to obtain treatment. Prepare yourself for some resistance from your loved one; however, remind him or her that you are there for support. During the entire process, do not ignore your own well-being, as you will need strength to support your loved one and you cannot do so if you are not taking care of yourself.

The following are among the many elements that may be included in a resident’s rehab experience at The Camp:
Detoxification: For individuals who have been unable to rid their bodies of Percocet or other drugs prior to arriving at The Camp, detoxification can be an essential precursor to full participation in treatment. When a resident is determined to be in need of percocet detox services, we will coordinate with an offsite doctor, commonly near the Santa Cruz/San Jose, CA areas, who will develop and approve an appropriate detox protocol. As is the case with all aspects of rehab at The Camp, detox protocols are developed and implemented in the manner that best meets the specific needs of each resident.
Medication management: Residents whose Percocet addiction is accompanied by a co-occurring mental health condition may receive a referral to meet with a psychiatrist to determine if prescribed medication should be incorporated into their rehab or treatment plans. Residents who receive medications will meet with the psychiatrist on a weekly basis to monitor their progress and adjust their prescriptions if necessary. Members of our nursing staff also assist in monitoring residents’ medications.
Individual therapy: Residents receiving treatment for Percocet addiction meet with their case managers meet two times each week for individual therapy sessions. These sessions allow residents to process their experiences, discuss their rehab progress, and address any concerns have arisen since the previous session.
