The demand for oxycodone abuse treatment is increasing for people across the United States. Oxycodone is also known by its brand name OxyContin. Oxycodone is a narcotic pain medication that is similar to morphine and other opiate painkillers. Oxycodone is so highly addictive that, unfortunately, even when patients follow doctor’s orders exactly, they can still become addicted to the drug. When the addiction to oxycodone sets in, it is nearly impossible to get off the drug without oxycodone abuse treatment, and making the attempt to with draw from oxycodone without medical supervision is extremely risky from a physical standpoint.
