Dicodid

Dicodid

Dicodid is an opiate like codeine and is the brand name for Hydrocodone. Like other semisynthetic opiates this is a potentially dangerous drug and can be habit-forming or very addictive. According to recent surveys it has been reported that a lot of people become addicted to painkillers like Dicodid initially in a seemingly normal or casual fashion starting with the prescribed use of the drug.

Risk of Dependency


Being a brand name of Hydrocodone, dicodid is classified as a Schedule III and IV drug, that means the sale and distribution of this drug is heavily checked and restricted. Being an opiate in nature, this drug when consumed attaches itself to the receptors in the brain which in turn give the user a feeling of being high or in a state of euphoria. This is why the risk of drug dependency or drug addiction is quite high when a person takes this drug with proper consultation from a doctor. If a person continuously takes this drug without proper consultation from a doctor, then his body as well as brain gets addicted to the drug. He starts craving the drug to get the feeling of high all the time. When an addicted person does not get his usual fix of the drug, the body suffers severe withdrawal symptoms that are quite taxing both physically and mentally.

Signs of Dicodid Addiction

The National Institute of Health, has given a general list of symptoms that can be seen in a person who is addicted to dicodid or similar painkillers. These symptoms include:

  • Difficulty in Breathing
  • Shrunken Pupil
  • Vomiting and Nausea
  • Constipation
  • Increased tolerance of the drug
  • Strong Craving for the Drug which forces the user to consult different doctors to get the drug
  • Filling prescriptions at multiple pharmacies so no one recognizes you

In case you or a loved one exhibits these signs than there are strong chances that you or the other person is addicted to the drug. The right thing to do under this situation is to get in touch with a Dicodid rehab center and get immediate help. These days with growing awareness of the various addictions, you will have a lot of choices from which you can choose a facility that best suits your needs.

Dicodid Detox and Rehab Facility

Usually there are two major types of Dicodid drug rehab facilities namely: Inpatient rehab centers and outpatient rehab centers.

The difference between the two is quite obvious in the name only. Inpatient rehab facility offers a patient full time support and care in a structured and closely monitored environment, the patient is required to live in the facility during the treatment period. Under the outpatient rehab program allows a patient a more flexible treatment or therapy option. It usually allows patient to get on with his daily obligations like job or school while attending the treatment a few days a week.

However, doctors usually recommend a full time inpatient rehab program to an addiction patient as under this treatment, the patient lives in a controlled and closely monitored environment which keeps him away from even the temptation of the addictive drugs. Moreover, the staff keeps regular check on the patient 24×7.
