Proudly serving North Carolina, our methadone clinics provide adults struggling with addiction the ability to recover from Lorcet.

Understanding Lorcet Abuse

Understanding Lorcet Abuse Recovery

Lorcet, a prescription pain medication that contains both hydrocodone bitartrate and acetaminophen, is prescribed for those who struggle with moderate to moderately severe pain. When a doctor prescribes this medication, he or she also informs the individual that this medication can be habit-forming due to its addictive properties. Because Lorcet has a high potential for abuse, it is important for those who take it to consume it as directed by their doctor.

Sadly, many individuals find themselves abusing this medication and develop an addiction to it in response. When an addiction to Lorcet has developed, it is important for individuals to solicit the help of professionals to help them stop abusing it so they can begin getting their lives back on track. The withdrawal process that follows the cessation of Lorcet abuse can be uncomfortable to such a degree that the individual resorts to abusing this medication again in order to experience relief from the symptoms that’s ensue. Luckily, there are treatment options that can help individuals who are addicted to Lorcet achieve the recovery they desire. One of the most effective forms of care to treat Lorcet addiction is medication assisted treatment.

Medication assisted treatment utilizes specific medications that are effective in decreasing the severity of cravings, withdrawal symptoms, and dangerous effects that opioids can have on a person’s health and wellbeing. When partaking in this type of treatment, individuals can shift their focus from their cravings and withdrawal symptoms to their recovery process. When therapeutic interventions, like individual and group therapy, are received at the same time as medication assisted treatment, those who are grappling with an addiction to Lorcet can gain the skills and confidence needed to defeat a Lorcet addiction for good.

At Sandhills Comprehensive Treatment Centers, we are here to help you reclaim your life from Lorcet addiction. The medication assisted treatment that we provide is effective and safe in treating this form of chemical dependency. Additionally, the individual and group therapy sessions that we offer are proven to increase an individual’s chances of achieving healthy, long-term recovery. If you are in need of treatment that can give you the most effective care, reach out to Sandhills Comprehensive Treatment Centers today.

Types of Treatment Offered

Types of Treatment Offered for Lorcet Abuse Recovery at North Carolina Comprehensive Treatment Centers

Sandhills Comprehensive Treatment Centers is a network of outpatient providers that supply medication assisted treatment for those who desire to beat their addictions to substances such as Lorcet. Individuals aged 18 and older who have struggled with Lorcet abuse for at least one year can engage in our services. Our talented and professional staff of nurses, doctors, and counselors work alongside of patients to determine the correct dosage of the recommended medication, as well as any therapeutic interventions that will help move the process of recovery along.

The medications and therapies that can be included in a patient’s overall treatment plan can include the following:

Methadone Methadone is a medication that is effective in preventing cravings and withdrawal symptoms that tend to occur after an individual stops abusing an opioid such as Lorcet. Individuals who are prescribed this medication will not obtain a disorienting high, as methadone is classified as an opioid agonist. Methadone is taken once daily and at a dosage recommended by a medical professional. As a person makes strides in his or her recovery, the dosage of methadone that a patient is given will decrease so that true recovery can be achieved.

Suboxone: Suboxone, which contains buprenorphine and naloxone, stops the onset of withdrawal symptoms and drug cravings. This medication is the only medication of its kind that can cause withdrawal symptoms if opioids are abused during treatment. Suboxone is taken once daily and the dosage that is decided upon will be based on the needs of the individual.

Subutex: With buprenorphine as its active ingredient, Subutex decreases withdrawal symptoms and curbs drug cravings. Additionally, it also helps block the damaging effects of Lorcet and/or other opiates within the brain. Working as a partial opioid agonist-antagonist, Suboxone is effective in stopping the effects of opioid consumption while decreasing withdrawal symptoms so an individual can shift his or her focus to their recovery. Like methadone and Suboxone, Subutex is taken daily and in a dosage that has been provided to an individual via a medical professional.

Vivitrol: Vivitrol is a once-monthly injectable medication that is non-addictive and non-narcotic. With naltrexone as its primary ingredient, Vivitrol curbs drug cravings and reduces the withdrawal symptoms associated with the cessation of Lorcet or other opioid abuse.

Individual and group therapy: To better enhance the programing that we offer, we, at Sandhills Comprehensive Treatment Centers, offer individual and group therapy sessions to all of our patients. When partaking in individual therapy, patients work in a private, one-on-one setting with one of our professional counselors to work through their feelings regarding recovery. Group therapy sessions bring patients together to discuss addiction-related topics, demonstrate support for one another, and provide encouragement during times of struggle when in treatment.

Why Consider Treatment

Why Consider North Carolina Comprehensive Treatment Centers for Lorcet Abuse

Choosing to finally put an end to your Lorcet addiction is brave and incredibly beneficial to your wellbeing. When treatment is obtained for chemical dependency, individuals can begin to understand a life that is free of substance abuse while developing the skills needed to maintain recovery. However, if an individual continues to allow a Lorcet addiction to impact his or her life, a number of dangerous consequences can occur.

There are many ways in which Lorcet addiction can affect an individual’s life. Substance abuse as a whole can make it more likely for an individual to come into contact with the authorities, as many individuals who are addicted to Lorcet engage in illegal activities to obtain more of this medication. In addition, family relationships can break apart, an individual can lose his or her job, and the ability to make good decisions can be compromised when Lorcet is being abused. Even more concerning are the physical and psychological issues that can develop in response to a Lorcet addiction. Those who have history of mental illness may begin to experience the worsening of any existing symptoms. With regards to a person’s physical health, long-term Lorcet abuse can cause vital organ damage and can also increase the possibility of overdose, which can be fatal. Luckily, however, there are a number of treatment options available to help make it so these side effects either do not occur or stop occurring as soon as possible.

At Sandhills Comprehensive Treatment Centers, we fully believe that a Lorcet addiction can be defeated. Let us help you create a happy, healthy, drug-free life.
