There are many instances in the skewed timeline of humanity wherein people have been known to go through pitfalls due to some unwitting decision. In the times when people are going through sheer pain, painkillers seem like the only way out. And it’s a known fact that there are few painkillers on the market that completely have the ability to numb down the severest of physical pains. A few such examples can be Oxycontin, Oxycodone, Methadone and the most addictive of them all, Percocet.
There are more than 208 million drug users in this world. For a number that big, what is even more shocking is the fact that 70% of these addicts started off with painkillers like the one’s mentioned above. When these legal prescription drugs become hard to get, that’s when patients and addicts turn to cheaper alternatives like heroin. Percocet addiction can cause physical damage to your body. Liver failures and kidney failures are a few examples of the havoc that this drug can wreck on your body. What is even more frightening is the fact that when a user quits the drug, the onset of withdrawal symptoms further compels the addict to use more Percocet. The effects also extend to overdoses that can lead to death.
So if you or a family member is unknowingly addicted to Percocet or any other prescription painkiller, the sooner action is taken the better. OpiateCare provides treatment for Percocet addiction in its many centers and with certified doctors by your stride, recovery will be much easier to achieve.
