Oxycodone is an addictive opioid that is commonly found in prescription painkillers like OxyContin or Percocet. These types of painkillers are so widely used for pain management that in 2012, doctors in the United States wrote 259 million prescriptions for opioid drugs. With such widespread use, it follows that addictions to opioids are also quite common.


In particular, Oxycodone addictions became more widespread as more doctors began prescribing OxyContin to relieve pain. In 2006, more than 7.6 million prescriptions were written for this drug. By 2007, OxyContin abuse among high school seniors rose to 5.2% from the 2002 abuse rate of 4%.


Worse, people that are addicted to this drug are often unwilling to go through the oxycodone detox process because of the many painful withdrawal symptoms. Those symptoms include:


  • Abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea
  • Depression, anger, anxiety, panic attacks, mood swings or suicidal thoughts
  • Aches and pains, chills, sweating and flu-like symptoms
  • Dizziness and fatigue
  • Insomnia and other sleep problems
  • High blood pressure and rapid heart rate


Fortunately, there are painless detox programs that can help you avoid some or all of those symptoms while easing your cravings for the drug.


What is Painless Detoxification?


Painless detox (otherwise known as ultra-rapid detoxification or UROD) is a procedure in which the patient is put under anesthesia and then given naloxone to speed the detoxification process. With this procedure, it is possible to go through detox in one or two days.


Keep in mind, however, that this detoxification method comes with some risks, and success isn’t always guaranteed. Depending on your needs, you may find that you’re better suited for a slower detoxification process.


Searching for the Best Detox Facility


No matter what type of detox or treatment you’re looking for, search for a rehabilitation center that offers a variety of treatments. Not all facilities offer painless detox – particularly since it requires monitoring in an intensive care ward – but most of the best facilities should at least be able to offer you medically assisted detoxification that can help ease your withdrawal symptoms.


You’ll also need to remember that oxycodone detox isn’t all about the detoxification process. Once you’ve detoxified, you’ll need access to ongoing therapy and support so that you can prevent a relapse.
