Choosing the Best Inpatient Percocet Rehab Centers
Percocet is one of the more often abused, brand name, opioid drugs. When an individual uses Percocet without a prescription or to get high, it can lead to serious side effects like dependence, tolerance, withdrawal symptom, addiction, and even deadly overdose. If you or someone you love has been misusing this medication and needs help, call 800-681-7369Who Answers? today to find professional treatment centers that offer inpatient care.
According to the DailyMed, “Percocet is indicated for the relief of moderate to moderately severe pain.” It is an orally administrated tablet that contains a combination of oxycodone and acetaminophen. The drug can be an effective treatment medication, but because of the common issue of abuse, doctors are urged to watch their patients closely for any signs of misuse and to avoid prescribing the medication to individuals with addictive histories.
Still, Percocet addiction persists in the United States, and the drug is just one part of the serious opioid abuse and addiction epidemic that plagues the country. But there is a solution. Professional treatment can help you put an end to your Percocet abuse and to begin a safer, drug-free life. Though there are many options for opioid addiction treatment, some instances especially call for inpatient care.
You can get treatment for a Percocet addiction in a professional rehab center. Some people want to avoid this option by going to a doctor’s office to be weaned off the drug or by seeking individualized therapy. But only in a rehab center can you receive the well-rounded recovery program that utilizes both the evidence-based practices of medication and behavioral therapy.
- Maintenance medications can be an extremely beneficial method of opioid addiction treatment, but they are not usually as effective on their own.
- According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, these pharmacological options “should be combined” with behavioral therapy approaches like cognitive-behavioral therapy and group therapy in order for patients to fully recover.
- Rehab centers also usually offer additional treatment options such as:
- Drug testing
- Assessment and treatment of additional, comorbid disorders
- HIV prevention and testing
- Vocational counseling, housing help, etc.
However, not all Percocet addiction rehab centers are the same, and choosing the one that is best for your needs is essential to safely recovering from your substance use disorder.
There are two main types of rehab centers: inpatient and outpatient. These two options exist because not every person is well suited to one type of treatment, and because in some cases, both options are necessary for a well-rounded recovery.
- Inpatient (also known as residential) centers…
- Provide 24-hour care
- Offer a controlled environment
- Give patients round-the-clock access to medical professionals
- Are effective for those with additional disorders or issues beyond their Percocet addiction
- Outpatient centers…
- Do not provide 24-hour care
- Offer the same essential treatment options as inpatient care
- Still allow for patients to consult with medical professionals
- Are more effective for those individuals with jobs and support from family and friends at home
When choosing between these two types of care, it can be easy to determine that inpatient centers are more intensive. You may believe this option will be best for you based on certain criteria, and it is essential that you make the choice that most benefits your needs. While inpatient care can sometimes be more expensive than the alternative, there are ways of finding the right option for your needs at the right price.
There are several different types of inpatient rehab centers where you can begin your recovery from Percocet addiction. Some of these can overlap, and when choosing an option for your treatment, it is important to make sure it will offer all the options and accommodations you will require for a safe recovery.
- Free inpatient centers provide all or partially free care to those who need it. Usually, patient need is determined by income or other factors.
- On the other side of the spectrum, luxury inpatient centers provide hotel-like rooms, gourmet meals, spas, and other desirable accommodations to those who can afford it.
- Methadone maintenance inpatient centers do exist, though most MMT programs are outpatient-based. According to the National Institute of Justice, methadone maintenance programs administer medication while also “providing patients with comprehensive rehabilitation services.”
- Therapeutic communities are some of the most well known residential rehab facilities. Patients learn to connect with one another as well as with the medical staff, and treatment is usually focused on every aspect of the patient’s life, including their physical, social, and psychological functioning.
- Short-term inpatient centers may only provide 3 weeks of treatment to patients, but these facilities can be helpful in some instances. They are highly focused on stabilization and will usually help patients go through the process of detox during the program.
You may still be unsure if this is the best choice for your recovery. Most individuals do need a treatment regimen that utilizes both inpatient and outpatient care, but because opioids like Percocet do not cause a life threatening withdrawal syndrome, some prefer to skip the more intensive option.
The only way you can be certain if inpatient Percocet rehab is right for your needs is to consider everything you will require from your treatment program, including the things that may not necessarily pertain to your substance use disorder. Then ask yourself if this program will be able to provide you with these options.
Depending on your needs and the program you choose, you may spend as little as 30 days or as long as a year in inpatient care. It is currently believed that treatment less than 90 days long is of little effect and that patients should seek rehab programs that are, in fact, longer than this option.
Still, some inpatient rehab centers exist where you can be treated for a short cycle of 28 or 30 days and then transition into an intensive outpatient center. This can be an effective option for some individuals, while others require longer treatment stays, some of which (especially in programs like therapeutic communities) can be as long as a year.
In truth, not everyone requires this treatment option in order to recover safely from Percocet addiction. But there are certain factors that can intensify the severity of your condition, some that can be dire and, therefore, may require a more intensive rehab program like residential treatment.
You may really need inpatient Percocet rehab if…
- You are suffering from a comorbid mental disorder like depression.
- Your home life is dangerous or not drug-free.
- Someone you know does not want you to recover and will interfere with your treatment.
- You need to be in a controlled environment in order to avoid relapsing.
- You do not have a strong support system of friends and family members to help you through your recovery.
Every individual patient is different and has different needs, which is why you should consider whether or not any of these effects could make your recovery harder and whether or not inpatient care may be able to help. Call 800-681-7369Who Answers? now if you are still unsure if inpatient care would be beneficial to you.
Because inpatient treatment is usually more expensive than outpatient, many people skip this option, but if it is necessary to your recovery, you can find ways to pay for your treatment.
- Many individuals use their insurance plans to help them cover part––or all––of the cost of rehab. Because treatment for substance use disorders is now considered an essential health benefit, almost every insurance plan will offer coverage for this type of care.
- According to the Department of Health and Human Services, Medicare and Medicaid will often cover substance abuse disorder treatment, “as long as those services as reasonable and necessary.” This includes inpatient treatment.
- You may be able to ask your friends and family members to help you pay for rehab. If everyone chips in a little, it can narrow down the cost considerably, and it will likely make them happy to hear you are seeking help.
- Some rehab centers offer care on a sliding-fee scale, which is an amount decided upon by you and the rehab center based on what you can reasonably pay.
- If your out-of-pocket costs are still high, you may be able to finance your treatment amount and pay it in increments instead of all at once.
Paying for rehab does not need to be as problematic as it may seem, and especially if you believe inpatient care is the best option for your needs, it is a good idea to consider the different ways in which you can minimize your treatment costs.

After rehab, you will often still need helpful options to allow you to safely recover. After all, patients are not normally cured after treatment, even after a residential rehab program. According to the NIDA, addiction is considered a chronically relapsing disease, and many different precautions must be taken to ensure that you do not relapse while living in recovery.
Inpatient care is an extremely intensive treatment option as well, so it isn’t safe to end your time in treatment without a transitional period or a safety net. Here are some options you can utilize once your rehab program ends and your life in recovery begins.
- You can attend an outpatient program once your inpatient rehab ends. This can be a helpful transitional option, and in fact, many outpatient rehab programs for opioid addiction can last as long as the patient needs them to last.
- You can also attend 12-step or non-12-step support group meetings. This is a great transitional aftercare option, and many individuals are able to gain another layer of social support from programs like Narcotics Anonymous and SMART Recovery.
- You may choose to live in a sober home or another similar type of residency. These homes are not the same as treatment centers, but they do offer strict rules about what residents can and can’t do as well as a drug-free environment if you do not have one at home.
- Booster sessions are another option for those who leave inpatient care and still need help. You can return to your rehab center every few weeks or so to speak with your doctors, get an assessment, and discuss your progress.
Whatever you choose to do after rehab ends, remembering that you may still need help and that you shouldn’t have to work without a safety net can be beneficial to your long-term recovery.
Percocet addiction can be devastating to a person’s life, and often, the best, most effective treatment choice is residential rehab.
