Detoxing is the act of systematically removing that chemical from your body. There are two common ways of doing this; cold-turkey, which means just stopping the use completely without any assistance, and medically-assisted detox. Much like other opioid detox programs, OxyCodone withdrawal symptoms can be extremely painful and even life-threatening. Because of this, trying to quit cold turkey almost never works leading to relapses and overdoses.
Medically supervised detox programs like ours at Beginnings Treatment Centers offer medication-assisted treatment to help reduce the painful withdrawal symptoms. You will be in a comfortable semi-private or private room, with healthy and nutritious meals, as well as 24/7 supervision to make sure that you are as comfortable as possible during this time. While you may have heard of the extremely rare occasion of someone quitting OxyCodone or other opioids on their own cold turkey, or even with controversial drugs like Kratom, this is highly irregular and not recommended as it has lower overall effectiveness and often results in higher relapse rates than a medical detox center.
