Vicodin Detox & Treatment In Ohio

It is sad to see tragedies happen to individuals who begin taking Vicodin in order to help with an injury but rapidly find themselves having a problem with Vicodin itself. Add to this the combination of Vicodin and alcohol and tragedy is on its way. In Ohio, it is not too difficult to find death attributed to an overdose of pain relievers. For Ohio, it is important to note that painkiller addiction rates for the buckeye state is fairly high compared to neighboring states like Indiana and Michigan, located around 5.5%. Drugs like Vicodin, Percocet, Hydrocodone and Acetaminophen start by being helpful but quickly turn into a harm, as users begin feeling a ''craving'' for narcotics like the previously mentioned Vicodin, even when their injury is no more.

What aggravates the problem is the ease with which an individual can get his hands-on pain relievers. There is no organized system to see how many Vicodin someone has bought in the state of Ohio. One could go to various doctors and repeatedly get Vicodin. Addicts often say they are in pain in order to get more Vicodin, when, in reality, their pain or sore is long gone. Doctors rarely have all the tools and resources to verify the truth to such claims, and thus quickly give medication such as Vicodin, Oxycontin, Percocet and other pain relievers without thorough verification.
