The Benefits of Lortab Addiction Treatment
Unfortunately, the United States has an epidemic: opiate addiction. One of the key opiates is Lortab, a powerful mixture of hydrocodone and acetaminophen. Hydrocodone is a very addictive opiate and acetaminophen is deadly in high doses. People who abuse this combination in the form of Lortab, require addiction treatment.
No More Expensive Lortab Buys
As with many brand name opiates, Lortab is expensive when you are supporting an addiction. Some prescriptions, not including the price of the office visit, are as much as $100.00. This is if you get the prescription legally. Illegal Lortab can be much more expensive.
If you are addicted to Lortab, chances are you are purchasing it both legally and illegally, and the cost can quickly mount into the thousands. When you participate in an addiction treatment program, you no longer have to spend the money to buy the Lortab legally or illegally.
No More Side Effects
Like all opiates, Lortab comes with a myriad of side effects. The combination of hydrocodone and acetaminophen can be devastating on the body, even at normal prescription doses. According to the National Library of Medicine, some of these side effects include:
- Abnormal mood
- Abdominal pain
- Liver damage, at high doses over a long term
- Kidney damage, at high doses over a long term
- Heart failure
- Difficulty urinating
These side effects increase the more Lortab you take. Many of the side effects of acetaminophen also compound the longer you take the drug.
No More Hiding Your Drug Use
Addicts generally go to great lengths to hide the fact that they are addicts. Sometimes it can get exhausting hiding your Lortab use from:
- Medical personnel
Most Lortab rehab facilities can offer complete privacy. Not only will you no longer have to hide your drug use after treatment, you will not have to tell anyone about your treatment. No one has to know there was ever a problem if you don’t want them to.
No More Isolation
When you are in addiction treatment you will learn how to build your support network, a network of people you can rely on to help you remain Lortab free.
Medications to Help with Opiate Withdrawal
In a rehab, doctors can prescribe medications that will help you through your withdrawal. You do not have to be in chronic pain if you have access to these medications.
Many people who use medications, such as methadone or Suboxone, do not experience intense withdrawal symptoms. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, medications combined with counseling are extremely effective addiction treatment.
