Recover from Roxycodone Addiction at Beachside Rehab
Roxycodone is a brand name for the prescription drug named oxycodone, a narcotic pain reliever that is extraordinarily popular as a recreational drug, resulting in America seeing more rehab centers crop up in the last decade.
Known to many as Roxy, this highly addictive drug has lured many addicts and sellers into illegal behavior such as selling prescriptions, breaking into pharmacies, and breaking into the homes of vulnerable cancer patients who may have been prescribed the drug for pain relief.

What Is Roxy?
Who Takes Roxy?
The National Institute of Drug Abuse or NIDA authored a research project that revealed that 1 in 30 American high school students have abused Roxicodone at least once, and that more people were trying the drug in 2013 than in previous years.
A report titled Monitoring the Future has revealed that 20% of high school seniors have, at some point, abused prescription pills and The Substance Abuse and Health Services Administration has reported that the year 2010 saw 182,748 visits to emergency rooms as a result of abusing drugs
7 out of 10 teenagers who use it and other opioids mix them with alcohol, adding to the risk of a severely negative outcome.
How Does Roxy Make You Feel?
Users have described the drug in this way: “You feel invincible. Then you get the rush. It’s a full-body experience that kind of feels like a much more intense orgasm. Pleasure rushes throughout your body and you feel incredible. It is by far the greatest time of my life.”
It is not known exactly how it affects your body and mind, except that it affects the chemical responses to pain in our nervous system. It, and other opioids change your perception of pain, but do not change the originating pain in any way. Part of the experience in rehab for Roxycodone is learning about what your body goes through when you pop an opioid pill.
According to Addiction Blog, the typical high lasts about 6 hours, depending on the form of the drug you take.
What Are The Risks of Taking Roxy?
Even when prescribed for pain relief, it can cause serious side effects like a total loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, constipation, sweating, headache, and mood changes. To read more about the possible side effects attached to taking it, visit the Mayo Clinic website.
Roxy’s side effects are not limited to discomfort, but can pose serious danger to one’s health in the breathing problems it can create: If your rate of breathing slows too quickly, you could die. You could also experience extreme drowsiness, seizures, chest pain, rashes, and swelling of your feet, ankles, legs, tongue, lips, eyes, and face.
Painkillers should not be changed from their original form, such as from a tablet to a liquid to be injected, and doing so will put the user at risk for an overdose and even death. Also, because capsules contain talc, you can acquire a serious lung infection.
Long Term Effects Of Taking Roxy
Those who use Roxy for a prolonged period of time are likely to build up an unhealthy tolerance to the substance, meaning that more of the opioid is required to achieve its desired effect. Also, males who regularly use Roxy may experience a loss of testosterone, and an enlargement of the prostate gland, which can lead to an inability to control when you have to urinate.
All genders who regularly use Roxy are at risk for recurring constipation, excessive sweating, swollen arms and legs, a dry mouth, anxiety, sinus problems and problems with breathing.
Some Roxy users snort the drug in powder form in an effort to get a more intense high, though in doing so they put themselves at risk for nasal infections, damaging the roof of their mouths, and eroding their nasal passages.

How Is Roxy Addiction Treated?
Treatment for an addiction is most effective when presented in a Roxycodone rehab center, and usually begins with a tapering of the drug that is supervised by a medical professional: It is important to understand that to stop taking it suddenly will result in intense withdrawal symptoms that are difficult to contend with, and will often send users back to the drug, feeling demoralized.
Typically, tapering takes six weeks, usually in a Roxy rehab, with a doctor reducing the dosage by 2.5 mg every three days as you prepare to withdraw from the substance.
After you have stopped taking it, and your body has rid itself of the drug, it is time to deal with the root causes of your addiction through therapy, usually taking the form of individual or group therapy in a rehab center – an inpatient Roxy rehabilitation facility.
When you have completed your rehab, typically in 28-30 days, though longer programs are available as required, you will move on to outpatient care, which might consist of a sober living home, a 12-step program, an evidenced-based, secular support program like SMART Recovery, or participation in an outpatient treatment program.
