Proudly serving Central Virginia, our methadone clinics provide adults struggling with addiction the ability to recover from Fentanyl, heroin, oxycodone, and other opiates.

Understanding Co-Gesic Abuse

Understanding Co-Gesic Abuse Recovery

Co-Gesic is a prescription medication that is prescribed for the treatment of moderate to severe pain. This narcotic is comprised of hydrocodone and acetaminophen. When used excessively or recreationally, Co-Gesic can result in a euphoric high. Tolerance, addiction, and dependence can result if Co-Gesic is not used properly, which is why this addictive narcotic should be regulated closely under the supervision of a physician.

Medication-assisted treatment is an option available for those who are addicted to Co-Gesic. This treatment incorporates the use of specific, regulated medications to help ease the symptoms that can accompany withdrawal. Medication-assisted treatment also works by lessening cravings and eliminating harmful side effects that can take place with the prolonged abuse of Co-Gesic.

The highly qualified and compassionate staff at Central Virginia Comprehensive Treatment Centers are here to help individuals struggling with addiction to Co-Gesic get on the path of sober living once again.

Types of Treatment Offered

Types of Treatment Offered for Co-Gesic Abuse at Central Virginia Comprehensive Treatment Centers

Central Virginia Comprehensive Treatment Centers are a network of healthcare providers who supply individuals ages 18 and older who are struggling with an addiction to Co-Gesic. Our professional staff of nurses, physicians, and counselors are dedicated to providing individualized care to each patient.

Central Virginia Comprehensive Treatment Centers offer a variety of medication-assisted treatments as well as therapeutic services, including:

Suboxone: Suboxone is a medication that has been approved by the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) for suppressing opioid cravings. Suboxone also works by aiding with withdrawal symptoms without giving the user a high that is normally associated with Co-Gesic use. Suboxone is the combination of naloxone and buprenorphine. Buprenorphine works by lessening cravings for Co-Gesic while the naloxone portion helps against overdose and abuse of the drug.

Subutex (Buprenorphine): Subutex provides the user with relief from cravings for Co-Gesic as well as relief from withdrawal symptoms. Symptoms are subsided without the euphoric high that is associated with the use of Co-Gesic. Since Subutex does not contain naloxone, many medication-assisted treatment programs will start patients off with Subutex and transition into the use of Suboxone.

Methadone: Methadone is used to decrease the symptoms of withdrawal from Co-Gesic without the euphoric high that is associated with its use. Because of this, individuals taking methadone are able to continue life as usual (attending school, working, and driving) without an interruption. Research has shown that methadone use is safe and effective for the treatment of Co-Gesic addiction since it works with the same receptors in the brain that are normally activated by the use of Co-Gesic. Methadone, however, does not create a euphoric high and individuals will no longer feel cravings to consume Co-Gesic while on methadone.

Vivitrol: Vivitrol’s active ingredient is naltrexone hydrochloride, which helps prevent individuals from craving Co-Gesic while also helping to suppress the painful physical symptoms that can take place due to withdrawal. Unlike Subutex, methadone, and Suboxone, Vivitrol is only taken once monthly (the others are taken daily).

Individual therapy: In combination with medication-assisted treatment, therapy is used to address the underlying psychological issues and causes of addiction. The professional staff at Central Virginia Comprehensive Treatment Centers feel that therapy needs to be incorporated into a patient’s treatment plan in order for him or her to fully achieve learning the tools necessary for obtaining lasting sobriety. Individual therapy allows patients to openly discuss their progress with a counselor in a safe, one-on-one setting.

Group therapy: Central Virginia Comprehensive Treatment Centers also offer group therapy sessions. These sessions are counselor-led and allow individuals the opportunity to discuss their progress in a supportive environment. Participants in group therapy can focus on their recovery by receiving insights from others suffering from Co-Gesic addiction. These structured sessions offer participants a safe environment to discuss their journey to sobriety with others who truly understand the struggle.

Why Consider Treatment

Why Consider Central Virginia Comprehensive Treatment Centers for Co-Gesic Abuse

Long-term use and abuse of Co-Gesic can drastically and negatively alter the life of an individual. The continual use of Co-Gesic can cause multiple physical effects, including dizziness, vomiting, fainting, lightheadedness, and even seizures. Just like other opioids, prolonged use of this substance increases the risk of overdosing and accidental death. Once addiction takes ahold of an individual, consuming and obtaining more of the drug takes precedence over all other facets of daily life. Work and relationships are pushed to the back burner as an individual’s life becomes consumed by addiction.

Although overcoming an addiction to Co-Gesic may seem impossible, it is not. At Central Virginia Comprehensive Treatment Centers, our compassionate and professional staff is here to help provide the tools necessary to achieve a sober life once again.
