Vicodin Detox & Treatment In Nevada

The state of Nevada has seen the Vicodin epidemic from up close. Las Vegas, Reno, Henderson, Paradise all have had their problems with Vicodin, Oxycontin, Percocet, Lortab and other well known Painkillers. Very often, a lot of these addictions are combined with alcohol to create a lethal mix. With so many casinos offering free alcohol to their clients, it is too familiar to see gamblers combine alcohol and Vicodin. Perhaps you suspect that someone you know is taking Vicodin for other reasons then its original intent; this is too common with people using Vicodin. While a few individuals use Vicodin from day 1 simply for its ''high'' value, most Vicodin addicts actually begin using the drug because of its original intent, that is painkilling.

However, once their injuries and bruises are healed, they will continue their Vicodin use and lie to their family, friends and doctors about ''lingering pain that requires more Vicodin''. While this self-justification can be accepted for a while, eventually doctors will say no, and if their addiction is not taken care of, they will look for other options to get their ''painkiller high''. When doctors stand firm and refuse to give more Vicodin, they might look at Heroin for a possible replacement, being cheaper and easier to get. In the state of Nevada, it is in fact easier to get heroin then Percocet on a long-term basis. Add to that the fact that stronger Percocet doses actually cost more than Heroin, and a painkiller addiction left untreated becomes a dangerous Heroin addiction.

This is why it is crucial that one acts when it comes to Vicodin addiction. Even if an individual did not switch to Heroin and simply took their daily Percocet, the pain reliever can create dangerous side effects when taken over a long term such as: loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, sweating, and confusion or weakness. Later symptoms may include pain in your upper stomach, dark urine, and yellowing of your skin or the whites of your eyes. This is not counting episodes of overdose, which might create convulsions and can be fatal.
