Vicodin, prescribed to treat moderate to severe pain, is a formulation of hydrocodone and acetaminophen. While the acetaminophen offers some protection against addiction and Vicodin is not as addictive as OxyContin, it is a highly addictive opiate. The drug is also known as Fluff, Scratch, Vikes, Hydro, and Narco. Physical effects from continued use of the hydrocodone are depressed respiration, which can lead to respiratory failure, constipation and papillary construction. Liver and kidney damage are caused by continued use of the acetaminophen.
As an opiate, Vicodin produces a feeling of euphoria along with pain relief. Over time, the addict builds tolerance and requires higher and more frequent doses to provide pain relief or induce the euphoric high. Addicts often switch to heroin or other opiates if their supply of hydrocodone is unavailable, leading the addict to progress to snorting and injection to achieve the high from the drug.
There is a large underground market for Vicodin, leading to prescription fraud on the part of patients and doctors who provide the drug for sale.
Many users feel that since Vicodin is a prescribed drug, they cannot become addicted to its use and since they can continue to get prescriptions, they are not addicted. And since it is relatively easy for addicted patients to “shop” doctors to obtain multiple prescriptions to supply their increasing need for Vicodin, reinforcing the perception that their use of the drug is “normal.” At Into Action, we recognize the difficulty in convincing the addict that help is needed to treat their Vicodin abuse. Our compassionate, experienced staff works with each addict to prepare you for the challenges you will face during recovery and develop a custom treatment and support program to provide you with the best opportunity for success.
