Oxycontin Addiction


Oxycontin Dependency Oxycontin, an effective prescription pain reliever and a potent opioid, is recognized for its capacity to significantly alleviate discomfort. However, its high potential for dependency and abuse has raised significant public health alarms. The drug stimulates the brain’s pleasure center, leading to feelings of euphoria and enjoyment that often culminate in dependency. Users may alter the method of intake by crushing, snorting, or injecting Oxycontin, heightening the overdose and fatality risk.


The prolonged consumption of Oxycontin can lead to physical dependency and withdrawal challenges, making it exceedingly difficult for users to cease usage without assistance. This dependency may drive individuals to continue seeking the drug compulsively, despite knowing the negative outcomes.

Combating Oxycontin dependency necessitates a multifaceted approach, including medication, behavioral therapy, and support networks. Medications like Subutex, Suboxone, or methadone may be employed to mitigate withdrawal symptoms and cravings. However, these treatments often substitute one opioid with another, marginally less detrimental.


As a part of the preparation for ibogaine therapy, Oxycontin serves as an appropriate substitute for longer-acting opioids like Subutex or Suboxone.


Individuals transitioning from Subutex or Suboxone should switch to Oxycontin several weeks prior to commencing treatment at our facility, allowing sufficient time for the body to eliminate the long-acting opioids.


Participants are advised to limit their Oxycontin consumption to a maximum of 120mg daily before starting the program. Depending on the duration and complexity of their Oxycontin usage, including any combination with drugs like methadone or Suboxone, the program’s length may vary, with extended stays available upon request.
