Choosing the Best Inpatient Oxycodone Rehab Centers
Oxycodone is an opioid pain reliever that is either prescribed alone or in combination with less intense pain relievers. The drug can be a very effective option for this type of issue, but it can also be abused by those hoping to experience euphoric effects. Anyone who misuses oxycodone or other drugs like it long enough will be very likely to become addicted.

According to the Drug Enforcement Administration, “Oxycodone is a semi-synthetic narcotic analgesic and historically has been a popular drug of abuse among the narcotic abusing population.” Sometimes, it is prescribed as a combination drug along with acetaminophen or aspirin, but it also prescribed alone, often under the brand name OxyContin. For years, oxycodone has had serious issues with abuse and distribution into the black market.
If you have been struggling with opioid abuse, you may very likely be addicted already. You may have even considered using stronger drugs––like heroin––or may have previously done so. If you have realized that your substance abuse has gone beyond your control, now is the time to seek help and to put an end to this dangerous behavior.
The best place to seek treatment for an oxycodone addiction is in a rehab center. While some individuals choose to simply go to their doctors and go through detox, this is not enough to truly treat an addiction syndrome. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, “Detox alone is not treatment,” and you will need a full rehab regimen of behavioral therapy and medications in order to fully overcome your addiction.
You can find this type of help in a professional rehab center. But what kind of facility should you choose? And how can you know what will be the best treatment option for your needs?
Choosing between inpatient and outpatient rehab is part of the process of choosing the best oxycodone rehab center for your current needs. It is important to understand the main differences between these programs in order to make the best choice for your recovery.
- Inpatient centers offer 24-hour care while outpatient facilities do not.
- Inpatient centers also offer care in a controlled environment. While outpatient centers can provide a semi-controlled environment while you are in the facility, you will return home to a non-controlled environment after your treatment session ends.
- Inpatient centers usually offer more treatment options than outpatient centers, though the latter type of facility usually provides patients with at least the basic, evidence-based practices for addiction treatment (including medications and behavioral therapies).
- Inpatient facilities offer patients a respite from their daily lives while outpatient facilities offer a treatment regimen that can be scheduled around your regular responsibilities so that you can work, see your family, and live your life while receiving treatment.
Many individuals require a treatment regimen that utilizes both inpatient and outpatient care over the course of recovery, but this isn’t always the case. The most important step now is to decide which type of care will better suit your current situation. If you believe inpatient care will be a suitable option for your needs, call 800-681-7369Who Answers? now.
Because there are so many patients with individualized needs, one treatment option does not suit every person looking for safe, effective rehab (NIDA). Therefore, it is important to not only determine if inpatient care is right for your oxycodone addiction recovery but also what type of inpatient treatment you may need.
- Do you require methadone treatment for your addiction?
- Contrary to popular belief, one can receive methadone maintenance treatment as part of an inpatient program, and deciding whether or not you require this type of care is important.
- Oxycodone is not as severe as some other highly abused opioids, but if your addiction is strong enough, you may need to find care in an inpatient methadone maintenance program.
- Are you struggling financially or are you worried you won’t be able to afford treatment?
- There are safe and effective inpatient centers that do not cost patients a cent to attend. In fact, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration states that both partial and all-free treatment centers are more likely than no-free programs to offer “nonhospital residential care.”
- Do you want to find a comfortable rehab program that will offer additional, luxury treatment options?
- Luxury treatment centers often provide plush accommodations and expensive treatment options such as acupuncture. These facilities can provide another level of comfort to those in recovery.
- Do you need hospital-based care?
- Most residential centers do not provide hospitalization to patients even though they do provide 24-hour care. However, there are some facilities that do offer this more intensive option, which might be necessary if you are suffering from a severe comorbid disorder or you are in need of this type of care.
Choosing the best inpatient oxycodone rehab center for your needs may not be an easy task, but considering everything you will require from your treatment center can help you narrow down the search. We can also help you find the right options when you call 800-681-7369Who Answers?.
Inpatient oxycodone rehab may or may not be the best option for your recovery, but it is very important that you always consider your needs for care and no one else’s. After all, you need to be able to feel comfortable in your rehab program, and you must ensure that it meets your needs in order for it to work.
- Do I need more intensive treatment for my addiction syndrome?
- Am I worried I will return to opioid abuse if I am left alone?
- Have I tried to seek treatment before and not been satisfied with the results?
- Is this my first time seeking professional help for my addiction syndrome?
- Am I lacking a strong support system at home of friends and family members who can help me through my recovery?
- Am I suffering from more than one type of substance use disorder?
- Have I been abusing drugs stronger than oxycodone––like morphine or heroin––in order to combat tolerance?
- Am I suffering from a comorbid mental or physical disorder that will need to be treated simultaneously with my addiction?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, inpatient oxycodone rehab may in fact be right for your needs. It is important to consider your situation from every angle, though, when choosing the best option for your recovery.
The length of time you will spend in residential treatment should depend strongly on the severity of your addiction syndrome and on the needs you have for treatment. Unfortunately, though, it will also likely depend on the program you choose. For example, some free and low-cost centers can only afford to offer patients 30 days of treatment, while more costly options may last longer.
According to the NIDA, treatment programs should usually last at least 90 days in order for patients to reap the full benefits of the program. Longer options are usually considered to be even more effective, and methadone maintenance treatment programs often last a minimum of one year. As such, there are many variables that can affect the amount of time you may be likely to spend in your inpatient center.
It’s true that not everyone needs to attend inpatient care as their first rehab treatment program, or in fact, at all. But if you have been struggling with your oxycodone addiction for a long period of time, this could be a very helpful option for you. In addition, inpatient care can protect you from the issue of relapse for a time so you can focus on your recovery and on creating a plan for living with your addiction.
Though not everyone needs inpatient care, there are some individuals who do. You may require this type of more intensive treatment if you are:
- Suffering from a comorbid mental or physical disorder
- These disorders often need to be treated simultaneously with addiction, and when they are not, they can derail the treatment process. Inpatient centers usually offer this type of simultaneous treatment to patients who need it.
- Lacking a strong social support system
- According to the medical journal Psychiatric Quarterly, people who do not have a tight social support group at home (which can include friends, family members, coworkers, etc.) often struggle more in recovery. The doctors, nurses, and even other patients in an inpatient center can actually help fill this void and become your support network when you need it most.
- Living in an environment that is not conducive to recovery
- If your environment is unsafe, not drug-free, or otherwise not the type of place in which you will be likely to recover, inpatient care is a much better choice.
You may be concerned about the costs of treatment, but you are not alone. In fact, there have been many changes made over the last few years to help make addiction treatment more accessible to those who need it. Here are some ways you can pay for your oxycodone rehab:
- Find out if you qualify for free or low-cost care
- Use your insurance plan to cover at least part––if not all––of the cost
- Choose a treatment facility that offers a sliding-fee scale for treatment
- Ask your friends and family members to help you pay for your rehab
- Finance your treatment costs
Choosing an inpatient program isn’t as difficult as it may seem, but it is important to keep in mind the lessons you have learned about treatment in general as well as your needs.
- If your situation is more dire than a mild addiction syndrome, you may want to consider choosing an inpatient program.
- Ask yourself what type of care you believe will truly benefit you, then seek it out.
- Don’t forget to utilize your insurance plan and any other options you have to help minimize the costs of your care.
- Call 800-681-7369Who Answers? now with your insurance information in order to be matched with rehab programs that will offer you safe, affordable, and effective care for your needs.
Inpatient treatment programs that match your particular needs are much easier to find when you have help from professionals who know where to look. We want to help you begin your recovery as safely as possible, which is why we are always available to discuss your needs and to help you form a plan to find and begin the treatment options that suit you.
Unfortunately, most people still struggle with their addiction syndromes even after their rehab program ends. This is because rehab is not a cure-all for addiction but rather a program that teaches patients how to manage the disease (NIDA). You may choose to attend an aftercare option once your rehab program ends, or you may choose to go through another treatment program entirely. Whatever you choose, always remember that your recovery is important and should be protected at all costs.
Oxycodone is one of the most highly abused and available opioid drugs on the market, but with the help of a professional inpatient rehab program, you can put an end to your substance abuse and begin your recovery.
