Why Do I Need to Detox?

toleranceHydrocodone, as found in Hycodan, is a potentially addictive drug. Taking painkillers over a long period of time can result in tolerance, causing individuals to take more than prescribed to achieve the same effect. Taking too much of the drug can have negative consequences, including death. If you are taking more than the prescribed amount, you may need to seek treatment at a Hycodan detox center. Call to locate one now.

What Can I Expect During Detox?

“…you will be continually monitored by medical professionals to ensure your safety and well-being.”
During the detox process, you will be continually monitored by medical professionals to ensure your safety and well-being. Sometimes medications, such as anti-nausea drugs or anti-anxiety medications, are given during the detox process to counteract some of the side effects of withdrawal. In addition, you’ll be given supportive care by medical personnel to ensure your body stays balanced throughout the process.
