Learn more about Vicodin addiction treatment at The Refuge, A Healing Place
Vicodin is an opioid painkiller composed of hydrocodone and acetaminophen. While hydrocodone, a synthetic opioid, is the addictive substance in Vicodin, acetaminophen, a non-steroidal pain killer, can be dangerous as an overdose can lead to liver damage and, in extreme cases, death. Vicodin produces feelings of analgesia by blocking pain receptors in the brain and also brings about feelings of relaxation. These feelings of relaxation are what cause this narcotic to be so addictive. Over a period of prolonged use, an individual develops a tolerance, requiring more and more Vicodin in order to achieve the same initial feelings of euphoria.
While it may feel as though living a life free from Vicodin is an impossibility, at our residential rehab center, we both understand and are ready to help you overcome your addiction. Through our residential addiction treatment center, you’ll learn the skills you need to beat your addiction once and for all.
Why Consider Treatment
Why consider The Refuge as a treatment center for Vicodin addiction
The consequences of long-term Vicodin abuse can cause devastating effects in all areas of an addict’s life. As this opioid is a central nervous system depressant, it naturally decreases the heart rate and respiration. If too much is consumed, the heart rate can slow to down to the point of death. Other effects of Vicodin abuse can include job loss, interpersonal relationship damage, and homelessness.

Types of Treatment
Types of Vicodin addiction treatment offered at The Refuge, A Healing Place
When you arrive at nationally recognized Vicodin addiction treatment center, you will first undergo a complete psychological and medical evaluation in order to determine your specific psychological and medical needs. The results of these evaluations will be combined to create a treatment plan specific to your individualized needs. If the evaluation determines that you are physically dependent on Vicodin or any other substances, you will first need to go through the detoxification process in order to cleanse your body of all drugs. Throughout the entire detox process, you will be provided with around-the-clock monitoring to ensure your safety. When all substances are successfully removed from your system, you will be ready to start rehab at our residential Vicodin addiction treatment center.
Medication may be part of the treatment plan at the beginning of your stay in order to help ease any unpleasant withdrawal symptoms or to help control symptoms of a co-occurring disorder. After new skills have been learned and other disorders are under control, medication use may be decreased or discontinued. The decision to use medication will be based on recommendations from your treatment team and will be closely monitored.
Individual therapy is one-on-one time with a therapist used to discover any underlying issues that may have led to the development of your Vicodin addiction. A therapist will work with you to help you develop coping skills and identify ways to prevent relapse.
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a therapeutic technique that is used quite frequently at our rehab center to help individuals understand how their thinking impacts their behavior. Counselors will work with clients to help them identify negative thought patterns and teach them how to correct maladaptive ways of viewing the world. By changing negative perceptions about the world, people will be able to see how positive thoughts create positive behaviors.
Group therapy is one of the main therapeutic techniques we use at our addiction rehab center as we believe in helping people connect with others who are going through similar issues. By working with other addicts, you can learn from each other better coping skills and how to identify relapse triggers. Our process-based groups are used to allow you to process your emotions about a given topic, while our psycho-educational groups are designed to teach you more about your illness, recovery, and any co-occurring disorders.
Family therapy: Family involvement is strongly encouraged throughout the treatment process as addiction affects the whole family and not just the Vicodin addict. During family sessions, your loved ones will have the chance to express how your addiction has affected them and any additional concerns they may have. We will provide all loved ones with education about addiction, what the recovery process entails, and what they can do to help you along your journey to sobriety.
We offer a variety of evidence-based methods to complement our traditional therapies. Based on need and availability, these therapeutic methods may include the following:
- A.A. and N.A.
- Breath work
- Adventure therapy
- Art therapy
- Music therapy
Continuing care and levels of treatment for Vicodin addiction at The Refuge, A Healing Place
When your time with us is complete, you will work with your treatment team to comprise a discharge plan to ensure continuity of care and help you continue to be successful in your recovery. Some individuals still need a somewhat structured treatment option, so they may join our partial hospitalization program (PHP) which is designed to allow for similar therapeutic interventions as our residential addiction treatment center, but allows you to spend your evenings at home. If you feel you’ve made enough progress during your stay with us to return home, we will provide you with referrals for traditional outpatient therapy. Additionally, we will provide you with appropriate community resources, such as A.A. and N.A. to allow for your continued healing.
