Choosing the Best Inpatient Percodan Rehab Centers
Percodan is an effective pain relief medication containing oxycodone and aspirin. Some individuals, though, begin abusing the drug because of the euphoric effects it can cause when taken in large doses. The more often this occurs, the more likely it is to lead to a severe addiction syndrome, which will require professional treatment.
Call 800-681-7369Who Answers? today if you or someone you know is suffering from a Percodan addiction syndrome and needs help finding treatment. Inpatient or residential care can be an effective treatment option for this substance use disorder.
According to the National Library of Medicine, Percodan is normally prescribed to patients suffering from moderate to severe pain. If you take the drug exactly as prescribed, you may become dependent on it, but you will not become addicted. However, addiction can occur if you take the drug more often, in higher doses, in a different way, or longer than you were prescribed to do so.
Because of the oxycodone in the drug, Percodan can cause intense euphoria, which, if you use the drug for this purpose often, you will begin to crave. This can lead to drug-seeking behavior and other severe side effects, and after a while, only a professional treatment program can help you put a stop to your Percodan abuse.
You can get safe, effective treatment for a Percodan addiction in a rehab center. While the drug is not likely to cause deadly withdrawal effects once you stop using, it––and other opioids––are so highly available that, without professional care, it will be very hard for you to put an end to your abuse. Percodan rehab centers normally offer evidence-based treatments such as:
- Maintenance medications
- Behavioral therapies
- Drug testing and education
- Assessment and treatment of comorbid disorders
- Medically assisted detoxification
In a rehab center, you will be able to receive help from medical professionals and evidence-based treatment options in order to make a safe and effective recovery. Still, choosing the type of program that will best suit your needs is an important part of finding and beginning the treatment process.
One of the first parts of choosing addiction treatment is deciding whether inpatient or outpatient care is right for you. Learning more about these two types of programs can help you make a more informed decision.
- Inpatient or residential rehab allows patients to stay at a facility for the duration of their treatment. In one of these programs, you will have a strict treatment schedule, usually followed by free time and other activities. You will sleep and have your meals at the facility, which will provide a controlled environment in which you can recover.
- Outpatient treatment, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, “varies in the types and intensity of the services offered.” Some facilities may provide intensive treatment while others may offer medication and little else. This is why it is always very important to determine what type of care you are receiving at an outpatient center.
When choosing between these two types of rehab programs, it is important to consider a few questions about your treatment, including:
- How intense does my treatment need to be?
- Would I prefer to be home every night, and will someone be there to help me stay on track while I am not in treatment?
- Would I prefer to be somewhere where people can take care of me?
- What type of care do I expect from my rehab center?
If you believe inpatient care may be a better option for your needs, consider the many possible programs you can attend and whether or not one may be more effective for your recovery.
- Short-term vs. Long-term Residential Care: Some programs provide very short, very intensive treatment that only lasts from 30 days to 3 weeks. Others offer strict and confrontational treatment that may last as long as a year. One of the most popular long-term residential rehab programs is the therapeutic community.
- Medication Maintenance vs. Non-Maintenance Residential Care: Buprenorphine and methadone are the two most commonly used maintenance drugs for the treatment of opioid addiction. If you choose a residential center that offers this option, you will be maintained on one of these drugs until the day you and your doctor decide you are ready to be weaned off it.
- Luxury vs. Free Residential Care: Some rehab centers offer additional options for care at a higher price like expensive meals and spa treatments. Others offer completely free (or in some cases partially free care) to individuals who would not be able to seek treatment otherwise. And, of course, there are programs that provide care between these financial extremes.
- Christian vs. Secular Residential Care: Some facilities, especially those run by nonprofit organizations or churches, offer spiritual guidance to patients, which according to the medical journal Substance Use and Misuse, can be a “helpful influence.” However, if you are not comfortable with this option, there are plenty of secular residential treatment centers as well.

No one treatment option is right for every individual patient. Here are the ways you can determine if inpatient Percodan rehab is right for your needs.
- You want a more intensive option for treatment.
- You have never been through rehab for your Percodan addiction.
- You are afraid you will return to substance abuse if you are not in a controlled environment.
- You will feel more comfortable and/or safer in a residential center.
- You need time away from your day-to-day life to reflect on your recovery and your needs.
If any of these scenarios are similar to your own, inpatient care may currently be the best option for your recovery.
Different rehab programs have different treatment lengths, as stated previously. Some programs are long-term and may last between 6 months and a year while others are focused on stabilization and may only last a few weeks. In general, though, 90 days is considered the minimum amount of time for an effective rehab program, whether inpatient or outpatient-based.
How long you will to spend in treatment can depend heavily on your needs, on the program you choose, and on a number of other variables that can change the trajectory for your care over time. When choosing the right program for your needs, though, keep in mind the general length of time you are hoping to spend in residential care.
Inpatient care isn’t always necessary to a successful recovery from opioid addiction. A study in the medical journal Psychiatric Quarterly cites a 1986 review of inpatient and outpatient care that stated there was no “justification” for the former program. In truth, though, some individuals do need this type of care in order to be treated effectively and safely for their substance use disorders.
- If you are suffering from a comorbid mental disorder, you will need inpatient care.
- Mental disorders that occur simultaneously with addiction must be treated simultaneously with addiction. Inpatient centers are more likely to be able to offer this kind of more intensive treatment. And because depression is so often associated with opioid addiction, you should be assessed for any potential disorder of this type.
- If you do not have a social support system of friends and family members at home who can help you through your substance abuse disorder while you are not in treatment, you will need inpatient care.
- Having the help of friends and family members can actually extend the benefits of treatment, according to the NIDA. But if you are lacking this type of support, it can be hard to avoid relapse and deal with the difficulties of recovery while you are not in treatment. Inpatient centers can protect you from this issue and the other individuals at the facility––including both the patients and the medical staff––will become your support system.
- If your home life is not conducive to recovery, you will need inpatient care.
- Whether your home is not drug-free or not safe for another reason, inpatient care can be a safer option. You will be in an environment that will allow you to get better and to avoid fighting outside forces that will just make your recovery more difficult.
Still, some people simply choose inpatient care because they believe it will be helpful to them. Whatever you decide, make sure you consider if residential care should be a part of your treatment regimen.
You can find affordable Percodan addiction treatment, even if you choose inpatient care. Different programs have different costs, and you can utilize a number of options to help minimize your out-of-pocket expenses when it comes to seeking treatment.
- Use your insurance plan to help you pay for rehab
- Use Medicare or Medicaid to help pay for rehab
- Ask your loved ones to help you cover the cost of treatment
- Find a rehab program that offers free, partially free, or sliding fee scale treatment, based on your income and other factors
- Finance your treatment costs and pay them in smaller increments over a period of time
Paying for treatment should not be difficult, especially if you are already struggling financially. There are many options you can use to make your care more affordable.

Once you are ready to leave your rehab center, it is important that you discuss your progress with your doctor and that you set up an aftercare program that suits your needs. This can help you ensure a safe recovery even after your treatment ends and a smoother transition out of residential care. Some of the most commonly utilized aftercare options include:
- Booster sessions where you can return to the facility for check-ups (NIDA Archives)
- 12-step support groups like Narcotics Anonymous
- Non-12-step support groups like SMART Recovery
- Outpatient centers, which can be especially effective for those leaving residential treatment
- Sober living facilities
The most important thing to remember when you are leaving your treatment program is that your addiction isn’t over. Instead, it is much more like the chronic diseases of diabetes or hypertension, and it will be something you will need to maintain. You may even need to attend a professional treatment program again at some point in your recovery. But understanding this can help you stay strong and avoid relapse, even as you begin your post-rehab life.
