Understanding Percocet Addiction
Percocet is a prescription opioid that’s prescribed to relieve pain but is also widely abused. Percocet is the brand name for a drug that combines oxycodone, a narcotic painkiller, with acetaminophen. Percocet and other prescription opioids affect the brain like heroin, and they play a role in how the brain perceives pain, and they can also create a euphoric high because of how they alter dopamine in the brain.
Even when someone takes Percocet as prescribed, there is a significant potential for abuse because of the way the drug alters chemicals in the brain.
Quitting Percocet and other opioids is incredibly difficult, and nearly always requires professional assistance to be successful. There is also the potential for uncomfortable or even dangerous withdrawal symptoms to occur when someone stops using Percocet, so they may need a medically-supervised detox program before beginning the actual treatment phase of their recovery.
