Oxycontin Detox & Treatment in Kentucky

If you live in Kentucky, it is very likely that you have heard about the Oxycontin epidemic in Kentucky. The Southern state has seen its fair share of trouble with mainstream painkillers, like Oxycontin, Percocet and Vicodin. What starts as a helpful remedy often turns into a dangerous addiction. Painrelievers such as Oxycontin, Percocet, Hydrocodone and Acetaminophen are very addictive and only a few days of usage can turn into an addiction.

What aggravates the problem is the ease with which an addict can obtain drugs such as the previously mentioned Oxycontin, Percocet and other Oxycodone variants. With insurance, a pain reliever user can get his hands on many doses, from different doctors and pharmacies. While this might be harder in smaller Kentucky cities, this is a big issue for more populous Kentucky cities, like Fayette and Louisville.
