What is the Best Norco Detox?

Norco is a prescription painkiller that is often prescribed to treat moderate or severe pain. This drug contains two different substances: Acetaminophen, which is a less powerful pain reliever, and hydrocodone, which is an opiate pain reliever that reacts with the acetaminophen for greater pain relieving effects. Because hydrocodone is sometimes habit forming, many people that are prescribed Norco for pain continue to take this drug long after it becomes unnecessary. In these instances, Norco detox is a necessity to break the dependence on this narcotic.


What Are the Dangers of Norco Dependency?


Most narcotic pain relievers come with a variety of dangerous side effects, and Norco is no different. Some of the most severe health problems include:


  • Insufficient breathing
  • Cardiac arrest
  • Hearing loss
  • Coma


In the most severe cases, victims sometimes die from an overdose. In fact, the Drug Enforcement Administration tells us that 16,651 people died in the United States in 2011 from narcotic painkiller overdoses – a sobering fact that highlights the need for Norco detox if you or someone you know is addicted to this medication.


Finding a Painless Detox Facility


One of the things that stops many people from finding a detox facility for Norco or another opiate painkiller is that the withdrawal process comes with some potentially painful side effects. However, it is possible to go through what is known as a “painless detox”. According to recent research published by the National Institutes of Health, the drug Suboxone may be one way to limit withdrawal symptoms during Norco detox or during detoxification from other opiate painkillers.


The research showed that people who were put on a 12-week Suboxone program were much less likely to relapse or to try other drugs than people who went through regular detoxification programs. During the program, Suboxone not only relieved withdrawal symptoms, but it also relieved cravings, too. This means that if you or someone you know wants to get help but fear of the detox process is holding you back, then a facility that offers a painless detox using medications like Suboxone might be the right option.
