Vicodin Detox And Addiction Treatment Programs In Quebec

All it takes is one severe injury that requires an extra-strength painkiller, and a person can suddenly find that they have become an addict. Even people who do not have a personality who would normally lead to addiction can quickly become addicted to Vicodin. The reason for this is because one of the base ingredients, Hydrocodone, is highly addictive.

Not only is trying to cure themselves of their addiction a bad idea, but it can also be very dangerous. If an individual has developed an addiction to Vicodin, they are going to need to seek out professional help. The first person they will need to talk to is their doctor. Because of the way that the Vicodin affects the addict's brain, quitting cold turkey is a very bad idea. The doctor will be able to come up with a plan that allows the individual to reduce gradually the amount of Vicodin they have become accustomed to.

One of the advantages of being a Vicodin addict in a larger province like Quebec is that the addict has more options for treatment than they would if they lived in a smaller providence with limited resources. Addicts can choose to take advantage of one of the 134 government-funded residential drug rehab programs in Quebec, which provide traditional treatment methods. Some addicts choose a different treatment solution.

More addicts are experimenting with holistic treatment for their addiction. These Quebec treatment facilities do not use medications as a means for helping the addict overcome their dependency on Vicodin, instead, the counselors focus on healing the entire person. Most of the holistic programs in Quebec feel that there is an underlying reason for the addiction. The philosophy of most holistic treatment facilities is that if the underlying cause, there is a better chance that the person will not become addicted after leaving the treatment program.
