Vicodin Detox Houston

vicodin oral solution

Vicodin, Norco and Lortab are brand names of commonly prescribed opioid pills to treat symptoms of pain.  The active ingredients in this pill are hydrocodone (a narcotic pain reliever) and acetaminophen (non-narcotic pain reliever commonly found in Tylenol).   Patients are normally prescribed this schedule III drug to treat minor to moderate pain stemming from an injury or recovering from a surgery.  Prolonged misuse and abuse of this drug will cause someone to build a tolerance to in which more medication will need to be taken to feel its effects and will lead to dependency.  Most people don’t think of Vicodin, Norco or Lortab being in the same class of drugs as Heroin, but it is and it can be just as addictive.

Other Common or Street Names:  Vike’s, Vic’s, Magnums, 357’s and Hydro’s, Norco, Lorcet, Lortab

Here Is How Vicodin Is Abused

Most people will ingest Vicodin by swallowing it in its natural pill form and sometimes it can be prescribed in an oral solution.  Some people will crush up the pill to powder form and inhale it in their nose.  Doing this provides a faster and more intense onset of its effects although user will find the “high” will not last as long as by swallowing it.  Vicodin can also be crushed and added into alcohol or laced in marijuana and smoked. People will also inject the pill into their body.  This is done by crushing up the pill and mixing it with a liquid and using a syringe to administer into the body.  This will make you feel the effects of the drug immediately.  This type of use promotes needle sharing and increases the chance of spreading HIV, Hepatitis and other dangerous diseases.

This Recovery Center is by far the best Recovery place I have ever been, they you about the illness of alcoholism and the solution of the Program of Alcoholics Anonymous in the basic text of Alcoholics Anonymous. As long as your willing, open minded, and honest. You can get what they have of a spiritual awakening/experience. Everyone that works there has been through the house and knows the struggles you are going through and you will be able to relate with you. There is no judgement.

This place is probably the most important place I've ever had the fortune to visit. When I showed up here a year ago, I was bitter, selfish and a shadow of who I thought I was. If you or a loved one needs or wants to make a change, I can't recommend it more. The system they have here and the groups can genuinely help, even if you aren't fully willing, the messages will stick and make a new start possible.

I checked in Bay Area Recovery in May 2023, I went into House 3 for inpatient help with alcohol and drug addiction. What I found at Bay Area is a warm and loving group of people that really care about the clients. It's a family I never knew I had. These people rolled out the red carpet for me and made me feel at home. They showed me how to get sober with the 12-steps of AA and gave me the necessary tools to stay sober, taught me a new way of life. I am eternally grateful to Bay Area Recovery and the staff.If anyone needs help this is the place to be. Everyone at Bay Area has been through this program and completely understands.Thanks for everything.Kyle Johnson
