Vicodin Addiction Treatment
Vicodin is a commonly prescribed pain reliever with a high risk for addiction. The drug is comprised of acetaminophen and the opioid hydrocodone. It can be habit-forming, and is deadly in high doses, depressing respiratory function. People who abuse Vicodin may use it with alcohol and other substances, further increasing its dangers. Vicodin can also be a gateway drug to heroin, which is often easier and cheaper to obtain when prescriptions for Vicodin run out.
Signs that Vicodin (hydrocodone) addiction treatment is needed include:
- Developing a tolerance (needing increased amounts of Vicodin to get the same effects)
- Doctor shopping for additional Vicodin prescriptions
- Using more Vicodin than prescribed
- Combining Vicodin with alcohol or other drugs
- Inability to quit using Vicodin
- Financial, legal or relationship problems due to use of the drug
- Experiencing Vicodin withdrawal symptoms like vomiting, confusion, convulsions, headaches, blurred vision and constipation
