Helping You Achieve Lasting Recovery

Vicodin Addiction

Composed of hydrocodone and acetaminophen (painkiller) in different dosages, Vicodin has become one of the most used drugs in the US. It consists of a very strong opiate painkiller and a moderate non-steroid pain reliever. It works by blocking the pain receptors in the brain and instigates a sense of euphoria, making Vicodin a highly addictive drug.

Vicodin is a prescription drug and is often prescribed by doctors to ease patients with pain or injury. These patients then build a tolerance for it thereby increasing chances of addiction.

Methods of Vicodin use include: Ingesting more pills than prescribed, snorting or intravenously by injecting.
