Oxycontin Detox & Treatment in Arizona

Sadly for Arizona, the amount of people using painkillers simply out of addiction has grown over the last decade. The percentage of people using painkillers for a non-medical purpose has grown over the last years, reaching the highest rates in terms of statistics in the U.S, with close to 7.5% of people using Oxycontin out of addiction and not for actual pain. More troubling is the fact that

Someone gets an injury playing sports, doing physical activities or plainly out of sheer bad luck. They will receive pain killers for the duration of their recovery. However, if they thought they were cursed with bad luck getting injured, their luck just got worst when they become addicted to Percocet. Soon after their injury is healed, they will feel a necessity to continue Oxycontin use and they will most certainly feel awkward or sick if they spend a day without a shot of Oxycontin. For a while, they will easily convince everybody that they still need Oxycontin.

After a while, co-workers and family members might get suspicious, but the addict will be very convincing about the necessity of continuing their Oxycontin intake. If their family starts to resist, the addict might do two things: start lying and claim that he's lowering his dose or even that he's done with Oxycontin, but will continue taking it secretly. The second option is simply to get angrier and more frantic in his attempts at convincing people he needs Oxycontin or Painkillers.

Eventually, doctors who provide Oxycontin will start saying no as well, and there the individual will have problems. This is where he might start doctor shopping. Doctor shopping is defined as :

"They'll start on one end of town and go to the other. What they'll do is they'll go to this doctor and say they have a backache, elbow, some type of injury. They'll move on to the next doctor as quick as they can. A lot of times they get away with it for a period of time.''

Arizona is a big state with large demographics; thus increasing the number of doctors that one can go ''doctor shopping'' to is staggering. If an individual tried doctor shopping in Alaska or Wyoming, he would quickly find himself out of doctors, but in Arizona, it can take a VERY long time until he has seen everybody. Cities like Phoenix, Mesa, Glendale, Tucson, Scottsdale which have a large population and a big amount of doctors, can provide a ''doctor shopping'' Oxycontin addict with a good number of pain relievers for an extended period of time.

Eventually, they might run out of doctors in their city, even if they live in Phoenix, Mesa or Tucson. Also, they might run out of money before they run out of doctors - as their Oxycontin addiction grows, they will need bigger doses, and larger dosages are more costly. A cheaper solution to opioid-based addiction is Heroin. Oxycontin, like most painkillers, is opioid-based; so is heroin. Thus sadly begins heroin addiction for a lot of people.

Oxycodone is not a major problem in Arizona. This is not a drug which is widely abused in Arizona. From 1999 to 2002, there was only 1 death related to OxyContin overdose. This is very low compared to other states. But although OxyContin doesn’t appear to be a threat in Arizona, police officials report very strong demand for OxyContin in the underground circles.

Phoenix is obviously the biggest city in Arizona, and so more crimes related to drugs, OxyContin included, can be observed in Phoenix. For example, a man in Phoenix had stolen all of the OxyContin found in a Walgreen pharmacy. The armed robbery was to supply an OxyContin addiction or for dealing purposes is unclear. But no matter the reason, it is clear to see that OxyContin can lead to serious problems with the law. This man was arrested and charged.
