Vicodin Rehab Treatment And Detox In Alberta

Getting addicted to Vicodin is far easier than overcoming its addiction. Getting over the Vicodin addiction is going to take a great deal of work. The first step in reducing an individual's dependency on the drug is going to be the person's attitude. If they are not prepared to admit that they have a problem and that they need help, it is going to be hard for them to overcome their Vicodin addiction through detox and rehab treatment in Alberta.

Once the person has decided that they are going to need to get professional assistance in order to overcome their addiction, the individual is going to have to seek help with their doctor. Quitting Vicodin cold turkey is very dangerous. A doctor will be able to look at the details of the person's addiction and be able to create a program that will gradually and safely reduce the individual's dependency on the painkiller.

When the doctor deems it safe, the addict is going to have to enroll themselves into one of Alberta's detox programs. These programs are set up so that the person has a safe environment to rid their body of the remaining traces of Vicodin. It is not unusual for the addict to experience severe withdrawal symptoms; the staff at the facility will make sure that the individual stays safe through the process.

After the worse of the addict's withdrawal symptoms have passed, the individual will have to enter one of the residential drug rehabilitation programs in Alberta. These programs are run by the government and everyone who is serious about getting over the addiction will be accepted as soon as a bed opens up.

Government-funded programs last for approximately twenty-eight days. At this point, the addict is strongly urged to participate in one of Alberta's outpatient programs where they will get additional therapy and learn how to pick up the pieces of their life.
