Understanding Norco Addiction

Dr. Nora Volkow defines addiction as:

That state in which a person has actually lost his/her ability to control the enhanced drive to take the drug even though they cognitively (by thinking) constantly want to stop it. They just cannot do it.

Addiction creates a gap between a person’s motivation to stop doing something and his/her ability to actually enforce that behavior.

Think of it as a metaphor:

Addiction is almost like driving a car without brakes. You cognitively want to stop, you do not want to hurt someone crossing the street, but if you do not have brakes, you’re going to be very limited in your ability to stop the car.” – Dr. Nora Volkow

Research has shown that brain areas act like disrupted brakes when drugs like hydrocodone are repeatedly taken.

But what actually contributes to the development of Norco addiction?

Addiction is a diverse set of complex factors, including:

  • genetics
  • environment/culture/social context
  • body’s response to drug of choice
  • emotional trauma
  • related health conditions

Worse than being an addict is staying one. Do not let this disease to continue destroying your life. Instead take courage! DIAL 1-877-958-9592 and get the help you need to start over.

Getting The Best Treatment

Each addiction story is different.

In fact, there’s no such thing as a typical case of addiction. Addiction differs from person to person because it begins for different reasons. Therefore, an individualized treatment plan is highly recommended for all those who decide to go to treatment.

As a result of the many possible causes, it’s impossible to have a single course of Norco treatment that answers the needs of every addict. The idea behind an individualized treatment plan is to take specific factors into consideration. Then, rehab staff design a successful treatment plan made just for you. Medical experts strongly recommend this because custom programs help people to:

  • Treat physical or psychological conditions that keep addiction going.
  • Pay equal attention to physical, mental, social, and spiritual solutions.
  • Develop a solid recovery network that eliminates social isolation.

Sticking to a tailor-made plan can lower the risk of relapse and better equip you to navigate the road to long-term recovery. But what do main treatment types look like?

Here’s an overview of the differences between inpatient and outpatient treatment services. These are the two main types of treatment used when dealing with Norco addiction.

Inpatient treatment – Inpatient services provide 24 hour intensive care in a safe and drug free surrounding. They also offer psychiatric and physical health assistance during a person’s treatment stay. When you choose an inpatient treatment stay, everything is provided at one location. One important benefit of inpatient rehab is the amount of medical attention received. Inpatient treatment provides constant medical supervision and attention to each patient. Additionally, inpatient care may be more effective because it offers a very structured and defined atmosphere. This type of a setting helps a person avoid the distractions of life and allows them to focus on physical and psychological healing.

Outpatient treatment –  These types of programs can be very useful to those who must continue to work or have obligations which they cannot leave. Programs vary depending on a person’s needs but typically require meeting twice every week for a few hours. Outpatient treatment includes both individual and family therapy counseling as well as specialized services like art or music therapy. Unlike Norco inpatient treatment, outpatient treatment does not often address medical conditions and nutritional needs. Many people choose outpatient treatment because of its flexibility. For adults with children, who cannot afford to attend treatment for months at a time or who do not have the insurance to cover their stay, outpatient treatment can be helpful.

In order to change, you have to make treatment your top priority! CALL 1-877-958-9592 and end the compulsive desire for Norco today!

You may also be asked to give a drug test sample. This initial interview is incredibly important! It will determine an individualized treatment plan for you.

Then – if needed – you’ll undergo a medically supervised detox. This procedure includes cleaning the body from Norco and allowing it to stabilize. Medical detox for Norco addiction can help you safely come off this powerful pain reliever. Finishing detox does not signify an ended recovery journey. Detox is only the first step of long term devotion and hard work towards living a drug-free life. You’ll need to focus on your inner growth, which is supported by the following.

Counseling – During conversations with your addiction counselor you’ll have the chance to look at addiction from a different perspective. Therapy sessions are designed in a way to help you remove troubled thinking and view difficult situations in a new light. Addiction counseling aims to teach you how to make changes in your life, which is often considered harder than stopping an addiction compulsion.

Family and group therapy sessions – You’ll meet with family members or others who are dealing with similar addiction issues. These sessions help you gain awareness of your needs and behaviors and air out possible dysfunction. The goal is to improve the emotional and psychological state of the entire family and learn how to avoid engaging in destructive behaviors.

Support groups – Support groups provide you with the opportunity to share your personal experiences with other drug abusers. These meetings help you develop skills to deal with cravings and provide you with emotional support.

Educationabout addiction –  During these sessions you’ll learn many things including the way drugs affect your body and hijacks your brain. You’ll also review the consequences of long-term abuse of this powerful pain reliever. The more you understand about addiction, the better!

Don’t be Afraid of Withdrawal

Treating addiction includes treating the physical body first. Then, you can get to the mental issues behind the problem. This is why the first intervention in treating addiction is detox under the supervision of medical experts.

Many people stay on Norco for fear of painful and uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. But this what professional detox programs exist for! To address physical withdrawal symptoms and lessen them. Physical discomfort during Norco withdrawal often includes:

  • diarrhea
  • muscle aches and pain
  • nausea
  • restlessness
  • vomiting

If you consider withdrawing from Norco DO NOT try doing it without medical observation because it may be risky. Those who go through an unsupervised withdrawal can relapse or suffer needlessly. Plus, if cold sweats, chills, and severe diarrhea are left untreated… they can lead to dehydration, which will only make the process of recovery more uncomfortable and more difficult.

Don’t let withdrawal avoidance prolong your addiction. Seeking drug detox is a necessary, and important step in recovery.

Call for a free assessment 1-877-958-9592. We’ll explain the detox process and set your mind at ease.

How to Help Someone With a Norco Addiction

When someone in the family is struggling with addiction, we must learn effective strategies that can help them change. A 16 week course is doing that. The CRAFT (Community Reinforcement and Family Training). program focuses on changing interactions within the family when addiction occurs. CRAFT’s main goals are:

  • Motivate the family to seek help and ask for treatment
  • Lower the quantity of substance use
  • Improve the lives of all members of the family

CRAFT teaches families how to reinforce positive behavior and improve their communication skills. This program will help families to understand triggers, prevent domestic violence, and get their loved one to accept the help offered. While the effects of this program are not visible on the short term, the 16 week program helps families achieve medium and long term goals. Furthermore, CRAFT’s approach builds skills that are valuable…. even if the addict does not enter treatment. It offers perspective about the nature of addiction and builds hope that a drug free life is possible.

If you don’t want to watch your loved one suffer the consequences of Norco addiction any longer, call 1-877-958-9592.

Long-Term Aftercare and Relapse Prevention

After rehab, people leave in hope that their problems are solved once and for all. Successfully going through treatment is great accomplishment. However, almost 50% of those who make it through an addiction treatment program relapse in one year.

Having this in mind, the real work starts after you leave the facility. This is why an aftercare program is a must that might last for a couple of years. What is “aftercare” exactly? Aftercare refers to additional support that is given after a stay in rehab. This support is provided in a form of support groups, booster sessions, counseling, or follow-up meetings. It may also involve teaching new skills and coping strategies.

Support Groups – 12 Step Groups are the most well-known aftercare option. This program is not time framed, and requires regular meeting, especially in the first 90 days of leaving rehab. Other support group options include SMART Recovery, Rational Recovery, or S.O.S  Sobriety.

Counseling – Individual, Group, or Family counseling sessions are designed in order to share your experience and difficulties after you’ve passed the regular treatment program. By discussing the real triggers in life, you can easily reveal and prevent relapse by becoming more aware of what can make you get back on drugs.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment – Specialized care is used when a person has another mental health problem while still struggling with addiction. No matter if this mental health issue occurred as a result of addiction, failing to treat both problems may lead to relapse.

Completing an aftercare program will lower the chances of relapse, and help you live life free of drugs. Aftercare will provide you support when things get worse and help you keep motivated. In this way you can create new, effective coping strategies that will support your normal everyday living.

If you have a medical condition that is co treated with hydrocodone, for the pain. Ie rheumatoid arthritis. Should one be concerned with a 5 mg dose 4 times per day with 325 mg acetomenofrinin. Just starting to research this ubject. Would like to find written inforamtion about this use. In my opinion a regular use of 5 mg hydrocod coupled with other medications presents little or no problems.
Can I have yur comments.

Hi Joe. Thanks for your question. Addiction red flags include:

1. CONTINUED use despite negative consequences to social life, health, or work.
3. Loss of CONTROL of drug use.

If you’re not displaying any of the above, you can expect physical dependence…but that’s not the same as addiction. Look out for these three main red flags and be honest with your prescribing doctor.

Does that help?

I just want to say that as i very much understand the issues with addiction to pain killers i feel there are still people who truly have conditions that this medication is needed for. I have fibro and was treated with norco 2 10mg a day for 6 yrs amung my 2 other meds. Not narcotics. I had some bad days still but very few and was very functional and i never over took my pain meds. However due to all the issues with addiction rather than helping those people and punishing the ones illegally using this med they have made it so difficult for drs to treat the patients that are not abusing that my dr was forced to no longer prescibe to me. This is very sad and rediculous. I am a mother and wife i am a very hard worker and now i have to go from nedication to another tryi g to get back to where i am not in so much pain i can hardly do my job as a mother,wife or coworker. I am being punished for illegal users. Im sorry but the tons of advil and aleve will kill me far quicker than the 2 norcos i took a day. I know people will likely be angery that i am saying anything but i just feel the world should stop punishing everyone and deal with the individuals that have serious problems.
