Percocet Detox & Treatment In Tennessee

If you are in need of a Percocet treatment for someone who is abusing Percocet, you have come to the right place. Addicted.org's purpose is to help people suffering from Percocet addiction in Tennesee or anywhere in the United States get the proper Percocet detox and rehab treatment program. Percocet is a very addictive painkiller and it takes over the life of individuals at a incredible pace, who unknowingly become addicts via their doctors. Medical staff unintentionally create addicts when they continue providing Percocet to individuals who do not have actual pain.

This is what makes Percocet addiction so insidious - it is difficult to believe that someone could be addicted to something given by a well-intentioned doctor. Someone has an injury, goes to their doctor and gets Percocet in order to feel better during the recovery phase of their harm. However, when the injury has healed, they feel a necessity to continue the use of Percocet. They can't really explain why, but if a day goes by without Percocet intake, they feel horribly sick. Some side effects of Percocet include: 

  • shallow breathing, slow heartbeat
  • feeling light-headed, fainting
  • confusion, unusual thoughts or behavior
  • seizure (convulsions)
  • problems with urination
  • nausea, upper stomach pain, itching, loss of appetite, dark urine, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes)
  • feeling dizzy or drowsy
  • mild nausea, vomiting, upset stomach, constipation
  • blurred vision
  • dry mouth.

Bio

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.

Tennessee has seen its fair share of drama created by painkiller addiction, in particular Percocet, Vicodin and Oxycontin. From babies who are born addicted due to their mother's painkiller intake to sport athletes, pain killers have harmed people everywhere in Tennessee, from Memphis to Nashville. Taken from the Madison waff: 

"The prescription pill problem is big. It's big in our area," said Sgt. Brian Chaffin, Madison County Sheriff's Department Investigations Supervisor. "Not just the fact that we have people selling and using prescription drugs, but the fact that we now have people committing crimes to support a habit or an addiction."

Florence Police said they have not made an arrest in their most recent case of prescription pill theft. Shots were fired at a home invasion in the Four Lane trailer park on Hough Road, sending one man to the hospital and leaving police on the hunt for the two armed robbers. Police said the two men knocked on the victim's door asking to use the phone April 11, 2012. When he opened the door, he saw one of them holding a gun and they were demanding drugs. The offenders got away with his prescription medications.

"People will rob a pharmacy, and know where to go in a pharmacy and take and what medications to pick up and leave with," said Chaffin.

Before addicts turn to crime, many of them go through a process called "doctor shopping."

"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. We have investigators that follow up and do a pattern or a timeline on people and show they are doctor shopping," Chaffin explained.

The Associated Press found pharmacies across the country in 2010 received and dispensed enough pure oxycodone and hydrocodone to give every person in the United States 40 5-mg Percocets and 24 5-mg Vicodins. The DEA does not track pill amounts received by individual patients.

Investigators said it's a problem that will never be stopped completely, but with the help of community members it can be controlled.

"If you see behavior changes, you see something that's just not right. You know, if you're around a person for a long time and they change all the sudden, something's not right. Become involved, ask questions. Don't be an enabler. That's the big thing," said Chaffin.

However, a question remains - what do you do if someone you know is addicted to Percocet or any other Oxycodone painkiller variant? The first step is to contact us at addicted.org. Calling us is free of charge and we will gladly help you find the right solution to painkiller addiction in Tennessee.
