Oxycontin Detox & Treatment in Massachusetts

Unfortunately for Massachusetts, the amount of people using pain killers simply out of addiction has grown over the last decade, now becoming a major issue for Bostonians and other people of Massachusetts. Statistically the state of Massachusetts ranks fairly high in the United States in terms of painreliever addiction. The amount of people taking Oxycontin, Percocet or Vicodin has grown over the last years and painkiller addiction is becoming a problem for Massachusetts. The larger issue here with Oxycontin addiction is that unlike illegal drugs like Cocaine and Heroin, it can be obtained via legal means for a while, and even illegally if the pharmacists and doctors start refusing Oxycontin to their patients.

People will get an injury playing sports, doing physical work or simply out of bad luck. They receive Oxycontin during recovery. However, if they thought they had bad luck getting injured, it is nothing compared to becoming addicted to Oxycontin. 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 Oxycontin is needed. After a while, co-workers and family members might be suspicious, but the addict will be very convincing about the necessity of continuing their Oxycontin consumption. If their family starts to complain, 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 that he will simply get angrier and more frantic in his attempts at convincing people he needs Oxycontin or painkillers.

Dr. Rohit is a Diplomate of the American Society of Addiction Medicine who has been supervising successful detox for over 13 years. He also has helped hundreds of people getting off drugs and alcohol addiction.

Eventually, doctors who provide Oxycontin will start saying no as well, and at that moment the Oxycontin addict 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.''

Due to Massachusetts large demographics and size, the amount of doctors that one can go doctor shopping to is staggering. If an individual tried doctor shopping in North Dakota or Idaho, he would rapidly find himself out of doctors, but in Massachusetts, it can take a VERY long time until he has seen everybody. Cities like Boston, Worcester and Springfield, which have high population figures and a good pool of doctors that can provide a ''doctor shopping'' addict with a large amount of Oxycontin for an extended period of time.

Eventually, they might run out of doctors in their city, even if they live in Boston. 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 doses are more expensive. A cheaper solution to opioid base addiction, is Heroin. Oxycontin like most pain killers is opioid based; so is Heroin. Thus sadly begins heroin addiction for a lot of people.
