Prescription drug abuse is currently one of the biggest killers in Ontario, with about 10 people dying accidentally from prescription opioids every week, often in the prime of their lives. Oxycontin is the time-release form of oxycodone, an opioid analgesic usually prescribed for chronic and severe pain. Because it contains such high amounts of oxycodone, it has become one of the most abused painkillers on the market today.
Oxycontin addiction can grow out of a simple prescription for the drug from a physician, but can evolve into a very real and harmful addiction that can take over and derail your life. An Oxycontin addiction can have psychological, social or environmental roots, but can also be concurrent with other substance addictions or mental health disorders. Because of the similarities between the addictions of Oxycontin and other substances, our experienced staff will be able to help you form a treatment plan that works for you that addresses all of your recovery needs. At Trafalgar Addiction Treatment Centres, we go to great lengths to ensure all of your addictions and concurrent disorders are addressed, and work out individualized treatment options with you that will help you embrace sobriety while fostering a long-term recovery plan.
