Oxycodone is a semi-synthetic opioid drug commonly prescribed for severe pain that requires treatment. Partly derived from the poppy flower plant, oxycodone is associated with a high risk of misuse, addiction, and dependency.
Oxycodone used over a long period of time eventually causes changes in the brain that make it impossible for a user to quit on their own, which is the most common sign of addiction. This is why therapy is necessary, even when a person is detoxing from oxycodone. Combined with therapy, oxycodone detox puts a person on the path to recovery, and therapy is recommended even after a person has detoxed from oxycodone. The most efficient way to detox from oxycodone is in a medically monitored detox center.
