Oxycodone Treatment Centers & Detox Facilities In Montreal, Quebec

When a person is struggling with alcohol or with oxycodone addiction, they always seem to have the same refrain: "I am not addicted and I can quit whenever I want to." For some individuals who are addicted to oxycodone, saying they can quit and then being able to do it, is what it actually takes before they admit that they have a problem. The person quickly discovers that trying to stop cold turkey when addicted to oxycodone is very difficult, and is, in fact, impossible to do without help.

On paper, the withdrawal symptoms from an oxycodone addiction do not seem so bad. They seem to be the same as the flu, and everyone has gone through that and knows that they will live. The thing that the addict usually discovers quite quickly is that while the withdrawal symptoms might be flu-like, they are very intense. There is not much the addict will not do for a chance to get some oxycodone into their system.

The addict needs to take advantage of one of Montreal’s formal oxycodone detoxification programs. These programs are staffed by professionals who will not only make it impossible for the person to get their hands-on and oxycodone but who will also keep them safe while the individual goes through the withdrawal process.

The nice thing about living in a large city-like Montreal is that there are more options when it comes to drug detoxification than if the addict resides in a much smaller city. In addition to formal detoxification programs, the addict can also choose a holistic detox. Furthermore, addicts have the opportunity to choose between government-run programs and private programs. When the addict’s withdrawal symptoms have resided, they will be moved from the oxycodone detoxification program into a residential rehabilitation program in Montreal.
