Oxycontin Detox & Treatment in Tennessee

It is sad to see the tragedies that afflicts to individuals who begin taking medication in order to help with a specific ailment but quickly find themselves having a problem with the treatment itself. The painkillers that were supposed to help the person suffering become a problem themselves. At the top of the painkiller selling charts, we find Oxycontin. The popular Purdue Pharma product has exploded in popularity over the last decade.

For Tennessee, it is important to note that while the painkiller addiction rate for the Volunteer state is somewhat low compared to neighboring states like Kentucky and West Virginia, it is still hovering at around 5%. Drugs like Oxycontin, Percocet, Hydrocodone and Acetaminophen start by being helpful but quickly turn into a harm, as users begin feeling a ''need'' for painrelievers, even when they are without pain. In fact, there is a vicious circle to painkillers. Often, a habitual painkiller taker will feel pain when he stops his pain reliever intake; thus forcing him into taking more painkillers!

Doctors seldom have all the tools and resources to verify the truth of such claims, and thus quickly give medication such as Oxycontin and other pain relievers without thorough verification.
