Risks of Oxycontin
Oxycontin dependence is a common enough case in drug addiction treatment centers like Ranch Creek. Like most narcotics, it is extremely addictive, both in how it produces euphoria in patients while taking away their pain. But there are risks as well. Aside from addiction:
- It can affect breathing
- It causes poor decision making
- When combined with alcohol, can lead to fatal overdose
- Unsafe to drive while using

Oxycontin, when used according to prescribed guidelines, is largely harmless. However, over-use and long term abuse can result in physical and behavioral complications such as:
- Difficulty breathing
- Temporary amnesia
- Liver problems
- Cardiovascular problems
- Withdrawal symptoms
Treating Oxycontin Abuse
At Ranch Creek, as with any credible drug addiction treatment center, the process of Oxycontin addiction recovery begins with withdrawal management and detoxification.
- Sensitivity to pain
- Nausea and vomiting
Following detox (during which the remnants of the drug are purged from the body and withdrawal is mitigated), a combination of talk therapy and guided recovery begins, which are in both group-based and one-on-one sessions. Some drug and alcohol rehab centers offer the 12-step approach in Oxycontin treatment. At Ranch Creek, we know that people respond differently to treatment. For that reason, while our patients may choose the 12-step philosophy, we offer a more personal treatment plan based on the best of both traditional and alternative treatments.
Ranch Creek offers a holistic and experiential treatment modality to allow patients to find self-acceptance and improve self-esteem. The We proudly explore methods of treatment not tied to the 12-step approach. In the US, 1 in 3 people go for holistic treatment as opposed to traditional drug and alcohol recovery procedure.
