OxyContin is a brand name of oxycodone, a powerful prescription painkiller. When it was first manufactured, OxyContin was advertised to patients and medical professionals alike as a non-addictive, safe painkiller to be used for most any patient in pain. Today, the truth is evident: OxyContin is highly addictive and extremely dangerous when used in high doses, or when used in conjunction with other substances like alcohol.
If you have developed an OxyContin addiction after receiving a prescription from your doctor years ago, rest assured that Silver Ridge is here to help you get back to being yourself again.

Recognizing the Signs of OxyContin Addiction
Sometimes the hardest part of fighting an OxyContin addiction is accepting that you have one. Due to the feeling of euphoria that painkillers cause, it is dangerously easy to accept that everything is “fine” after taking a dose. There are ways you can check for yourself to see if you are struggling with an OxyContin addiction.
Consider the following questions:
- Do you feel restless if you think about not having your next dosage of prescription OxyContin?
- Have you lost noticeable finances to pay for OxyContin gained through illegal channels?
- Have your close friends or family members raised concern over your possible addiction?
- Are you struggling with your job due to a constant “high” feeling from OxyContin?
- If you do not take OxyContin, do you start to feel nauseous and tired?
There is absolutely no shame in admitting that you have an OxyContin addiction, but there is wisdom in it. The beginning of your recovery depends on you. Find your strength with our help.
