OxyContin Addiction Treatment

At Boca Recovery Center, we know how powerful OxyContin can be. We also know that recovery is possible, as we’ve helped thousands of people to achieve it and sustain it.

Struggling with Opioid Addiction? Get Help Now

An estimated one-third of people who abuse drugs started the journey to addiction with a prescription painkiller.[1] If you’re struggling with OxyContin addiction, treatment can help. 

A qualified OxyContin treatment program will use medications to ease discomfort from opioid withdrawal, therapy to change harmful thought patterns, and ongoing support that keeps you connected to recovery.

Treating OxyContin Addiction at Boca Recovery Center 

Evidence-based therapy for opioid use disorder (OUD) is effective, but just one in five Americans gets the help they need.[2] Whether you’ve tried quitting cold turkey, or you’ve attempted therapies you read about online, know that a program like Boca Recovery Center is different. Here, you can get proven help for your opioid abuse. 

Your program may include the following components: 

Medical Detox for OxyContin Withdrawal Management 

A cold-turkey quitting process isn’t just uncomfortable. Severe withdrawal symptoms can be life-threatening.[3] A managed detox is not only safer; it’s a more effective way to begin your OxyContin addiction treatment program. 

Your medical team will assess your withdrawal symptoms and determine which medication is right for you. Your dose may be high at the start of treatment, and as your brain and body adjust to sobriety, it may taper to a lower level. 

In addition to medications, your team will provide nutritious meals, plenty of fluids, and a lot of support to help you transition from intoxication to sobriety. 

Medication-Assisted Treatment 

While your medical detox program can help you stop misusing OxyContin, your cravings for opioids will likely persist. Your recovery is delicate, and you may need time to build new habits. Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) programs can help you ease your cravings, so you can focus on making long-term changes in your life. 

MAT options that have been proven effective include the following:[4]

  • Methadone, which is a full opioid agonist that latches strongly to the same receptors used by OxyContin 
  • Buprenorphine, which is a partial opioid agonist that latches weakly to similar OxyContin receptors 
  • Naltrexone, which is an opioid antagonist that doesn’t ease cravings but can keep you from getting high if you relapse 

Misconceptions about MAT are common.[5] For example, some people believe that these medications make people high, just like drugs of abuse do. Know that your Boca Recovery Center team uses evidence-based approaches. You’re only using MAT at a level that helps you to stay focused. You’re not using enough to get high. It is a proven treatment approach for OUD.

Some people stay on MAT indefinitely, as their relapse risks are very strong. At the end of your time with Boca Recovery Center, we can refer you to a local provider to allow your treatment to continue. 

Comprehensive Inpatient Rehab Treatment for OxyContin Abuse 

Any kind of treatment is better than none at all. Researchers know that medications are critical for people with a history of opioid abuse.[6] But the environment you recover within can make a huge difference in terms of your long-term success in recovery. 

It can be tough to focus on your recovery if you are distracted by various elements of daily life, including all the triggers that contributed to your OxyContin abuse. An inpatient rehab program, like the one we provide at Boca Recovery Center, offers you the opportunity to step away from your triggers, stresses, and obligations so you can focus on your recovery. 

The skilled and compassionate staff members at Boca Recovery Center will monitor your medications and ensure you’re comfortable. You’ll spend all day in therapy, counseling, education, and support group sessions. You’ll be working very hard every day. You’ll be surrounded by comfort, expertise, and kindness. The entire environment will work to support your efforts.


While medications can relieve chemical imbalances, they can’t help you change your behaviors, thought patterns, and habits. Therapy can, and this is where the bulk of recovery work takes place. 

Several different types of therapy are used in addiction treatment programs. They include the following:[7]

  • Motivational interviewing, which helps to clarify why you want to get sober
  • Contingency management, which helps to make sobriety more rewarding 
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy, which helps to change the way you think and how you respond to triggers 

All of these therapeutic approaches help you to develop skills that support your recovery and reduce your risk of relapse. The exact combination of therapies that work for you may change as you grow in recovery, and our skilled team will continually adapt your treatment plan to suit your needs.

Long-Term Recovery From OxyContin Addiction 

Recovery is an individual process that can look different from person to person.[8] At the end of your inpatient program at Boca Recovery Center, you may have the skills you need. Additional support ensures you put them to good use. 

Some people can’t move directly from inpatient care to independent life. If you need more skill-building and time to find your footing in recovery, your Boca Recovery Center team may suggest intensive outpatient treatment or partial hospitalization. You will live at home, but you’ll spend a significant amount of time working with trained professionals to get stronger in recovery. 

If your home or neighborhood doesn’t seem safe or supportive of your recovery, your team may suggest sober living homes. You’ll live with others in recovery and learn how to develop a healthy, home-based routine that supports your efforts.

Other elements that might be included in your aftercare plan include the following:

  • Group counseling
  • Individual therapy 
  • Drug education classes
  • Support group meetings
  • Vocational classes 

Opioid use disorders often require continued care.[9] Leaning on these resources doesn’t mean the treatment doesn’t work. It does mean you have a chronic condition that requires management.[10] The Boca Recovery Center team can help you develop a program that works for you in the long term.
