Percocet Detox & Treatment In Massachusetts

If you look at the statistics of non-medical use of pain killers in Massachusetts, you will be alarmed at the percentage of people taking Percocet, Oxycontin, Vicodin and other well known pain relievers out of addiction and not for their original intent. The Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration's latest survey put the non-medical use of Pain Relievers at 5.5%. Even more alarming is the small amount of painkiller addiction assistance group located in Massachusetts.

Massachusetts has seen a good amount of problems related to painkiller addiction. Taken from a news article:

One study from the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) highlights the region’s ongoing struggle to reduce overdoses and deaths from heroin and prescription drugs such as OxyContin.

“We know and we’ve been saying for years we have an epidemic here in Massachusetts around heroin,” said Vic DiGravio, president and CEO of the Association of Behavioral Healthcare, which represents drug and alcohol treatment providers in the state. “That’s in part being fed by the whole OxyContin epidemic.”

State Trooper Nicholas Nason of the state police detective unit in Worcester County said the painkiller epidemic is getting worse, while the heroin problem isn’t getting any better.

“(Arrests are) more and more on the painkiller side of things; the heroin problem has been pretty consistent,” Nason said.

Nason said the police are starting to see trouble with a new prescription drug called Opana, which is a morphine-based drug that is even more potent than OxyContin. He said they come in 40 milligram yellow pills, and are popular with students.

“It’s supposedly a lot stronger than an OxyContin,” Nason said. “It seems like it’s geared to a lot younger crowd, high school or college. They are chipping off pieces of the pill and sharing it.”

Nason said street prices for Opana is $60-$80 per pill. OxyContin, Percocet, and Vicodin each fetch around $1 per milligram, he said, and one of the most common painkillers sold on the street are “Perc 30s,” 30 milligrams of Percocet for $30.

Nason said that heroin is much less expensive. Two teaspoons of heroin, about one gram, is around $80. He said often addicts can turn from painkillers to heroin because it’s much less expensive.

This is another issue with Percocet, Lortab, Oxycontin, Vicodin and other popular pain killers. The necessity to get the high can often lead to Heroin. This is why it is crucial that one acts rapidly in order to get a friend or family member abusing Pain relievers into a painkiller detox and rehab treatment center.
