Components of Roxicodone Inpatient Addiction Treatment

Inpatient treatment for Roxicodone addiction has several components. Detox, or safe withdrawal from the drug, is the first step. During medically supervised detox withdrawal symptoms are monitored and patients are kept safe and as comfortable as possible.

After detox education and counseling will be primary treatment components. Specific treatment plans will be individually tailored to meet specific needs. Factors that will be considered include co-occurring physical or mental health conditions, any previous treatment received and the duration and strength of the addiction. Counseling is generally offered on both an individual and group basis. Some common goals of counseling include the following:

  • Overcoming ambivalence towards recovery and increasing motivation to change
  • Identifying personal relapse triggers
  • Identifying and challenging thought patterns that contribute to the perpetuation of addiction or make overcoming it more difficult
  • Learning relapse prevention skills
  • Addressing co-occurring mental health conditions like anxiety or depression
  • Addressing any identified deficits in the areas of life skills and personal support
  • Identifying personal strengths and interests on which to build a drug-free life

Medication maintenance therapy is an option for those addicted to Roxicodone. There are a number of possible medications that can be used. SAMHSA reports that between 1994 and 2004, 18% of patients in treatment for addiction to opioid painkillers had a treatment plan that included methadone.
