Vicodin Detox & Treatment In Texas

Unfortunately, for the state of Texas, the amount of people using Vicodin simply out of addiction has grown over the last few years, now becoming a major issue for the Southern state. While statistically Texas ranks fairly low for the United States in terms of painkiller addiction, the amount of people taking Oxycontin or Vicodin has grown over the last decade and Vicodin addiction is becoming a problem Texas authorities worry about. The main worry, however, about Vicodin addiction is that unlike illegal drugs, it can be obtained via legal means and even illegally if the pharmacists and doctors start refusing Vicodin to their patients.

Generally, an individual will get injury playing sports, doing physical work or simply out of bad luck. They might be given a painkiller for the duration of their recovery. However, if they thought, they had bad luck getting injured, it is nothing compared to become addicted to Vicodin. Soon after their injury is healed, they might feel a necessity to continue Vicodin use, and they will feel uneasy or sick if they spend a day without a dose of Vicodin. For a while, they will easily convince everybody that they still need Vicodin. After a while, co-workers and family members might be suspicious, but the addict will be very convincing in the necessity of continuing their Vicodin intake. If their family starts to show opposition, the addict might do two things: start lying and claim that he's lowering his does or even that he's done with Percocet, but will continue taking it secretly. The second option simply gets angrier and more frantic in his attempts at convincing people he needs Vicodin or painkillers.

Eventually, pharmacists who provide Vicodin will start saying no as well, and the individual will have problems. This is where he might start doctor shopping. Doctor's shopping is defined as:

"They'll start at one end of town and go into 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.''

Due to Texas's large population and size, the amount of doctors whom one can go doctor shopping to be staggering. If an individual tried doctor shopping in Montana or Nebraska, he would quickly find himself out of doctors, but in Texas, it can take an increased time until he has seen everybody. Cities like Dallas, Houston, Fort Worth, San Antonio, Austin, Corpus Christi, which have large population and a good quantity of doctors, can provide a ''doctor shopping'' Vicodin addict a large amount of painkillers for an extended period of time.

Eventually, they might run out of doctors in their city, even if they live in Dallas, Houston or San Antonio. Furthermore, they might run out of money before they run out of doctors - as their Vicodin addiction grows, they will need bigger doses, and larger doses are more expensive. A cheaper solution to opioid base addiction, is Heroin. Vicodin, like most painkillers is opioid based; so is Heroin. It thus sadly begins heroin addiction for a lot of people.
