Lorcet Abuse Help

Lorcet abuse help - coughingLorcet is a mild pain medication that also reduces coughing. Lorcet is made up of a combination of acetaminophen and hydrocodone. Hydrocodone is chemically similar to morphine. Hydrocodone binds to pain receptors to block them and therefore relieve pain. Lorcet moves very quickly through the bloodstream which can create a sense of pleasure and relaxation.

Risks of Lorcet Abuse

Lorcet is highly addictive and should be taken with great care and supervision. Abusing Lorcet by taking more than the recommended amount or more frequently then recommended may result in an addiction to Lorcet. These addictions when left untreated can result in both a physical and a psychological addiction to the drug. Not only will an addict feel a physical need for Lorcet, but their mind will keep telling them that they need Lorcet. A psychological addiction can be even more harmful than a physical one and requires treatment and therapy for an addicted person to resume their normal lifestyle.

Withdrawal Symptoms of Lorcet Abuse

However, with the right determination and knowledge, anyone can get through the symptoms and come out on the other side a changed person. The withdrawal symptoms of Lorcet include the following:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Sweating
  • Goosebumps
  • Agitation
  • A runny nose

Supervised Lorcet Detox

Getting the drug out of the addict’s system is the first step to recovery from an addiction. This process is called detox. Detox can be a very difficult process for any addict of any drug. Close supervision and support are always necessary when facing a detox situation. Contact a physician and/or psychologist or counselor to help you get started with the detox process.

Lorcet Rehab Centers

During or even after detox a rehab center can be extremely helpful and sometimes necessary. An addiction can require a lot of attention that some people simply don’t have in their lifestyles. In a rehab center, the addict has 24 hour support 7 days a week. Sometimes this is necessary to complete the detox process. Even after detox psychological addictions can persist. Rehab centers offer therapy sessions to help the addict deal with the psychological aspect of the addiction.

Outpatient Lorcet Treatment

After detox and rehab, some addicts need help resuming their everyday lives. Outpatient treatments are perfect for people trying to get back to their normal lives after an addiction. It’s easy for people to fall back to old habits without continual treatment to help them live their lives without drugs. Outpatient treatments have the patient come in a few times a week for counseling sessions. This allows them to live at home and work their jobs and still work on reforming their life away from drugs.
