Oxycontin (commonly named "Oxy" for short) is an extremely addictive drug in the opiate family. Oxy’s powerful addictive potential is primarily due to the overwhelming sense of euphoria it creates in its users. Over time, the body becomes accustomed to the effects of the drug and builds up a physical tolerance, causing severe withdrawal symptoms. During unsupervised or unintended withdrawal from Oxycontin, it is common to experience intense mental cravings and physical pain.
When the addiction gets to this stage, a person dependent on Oxycontin becomes consumed with managing their usage. Getting Oxycontin becomes the driving force that governs a lot of their actions, resulting in anxiety and fear when the drug is not present or readily available. The mental addiction to Oxycontin is arguably the most difficult to overcome, and although the physical withdrawal is not easy, it can be put at ease with a supervised Oxycontin detox Passages Malibu Drug Rehab Center.
