Percocet Addiction

Fraser Valley Wellness Center provides Percocet addiction therapy in our private rehab and treatment center, in Abbotsford, BC. We are a private, fully licensed substance abuse rehab center in the Fraser Valley. We offer affordable substance abuse therapy with doctors that specialize in addiction and Percocet abuse.

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.

Percocet Abuse Symptoms

Percocet abuse can easily lead to a Percocet addiction and progressively cause devastating effects on overall health and other facets of life. Here are some of the signs and symptoms of Percocet abuse:

  • Isolation from friends and family

Percocet abuse and addiction can happen to anyone whatever their age, sex, race, social or economic status. If you, or someone you care about is displaying any of these signs it may be time to seek professional help at a treatment centre.

Percocet Abuse Help

Medically supervised detox is the first step in Percocet abuse treatment therapy. The professional staff of Fraser Valley Wellness weans a client off Percocet slowly to reduce withdrawal symptoms that can be very uncomfortable and lead to relapse. Detox is followed by comprehensive Percocet treatment therapy which includes one-on-one counselling and group therapy, followed by a reintegration plan to aid in effective long-term Percocet rehabilitation.

At Fraser Valley Wellness Center, a treatment therapy plan for Percocet abuse and addiction is tailored to meet the needs of each individual. If you, or a loved one is struggling with Percocet abuse, take the first step and give us a call, or schedule a free, no obligation consultation on Percocet abuse treatment therapy.
