Addiction is a chronic disease that deeply affects the way our mind and body functions. It is not uncommon for the byproducts of addiction to result in negative outcomes in almost all areas of someone’s life. Addiction is a progressive, fatal disease, but treatable.
Percocet is a prescription painkiller in which the active elements are acetaminophen and oxycodone. It is used to alleviate moderate to severe pain associated with an injury, surgery or dental work and including conditions with an accompanying fever. Due to the extremely addictive nature of oxycodone, Percocet abuse has become a widespread problem and should be treated at a professional Percocet treatment therapy centre. Even when used as prescribed, it is possible to develop a problem with Percocet abuse.
