Vicodin Addiction Treatment
AppleGate Recovery offers treatment and counseling for Vicodin® addiction in Lewisville, TX.
Vicodin® is a pain medication that can quickly lead to dependence, even after one use. As an opioid, Vicodin® binds to the receptors in your brain that produce a euphoric, or “high”, feeling. That feeling is part of the brain’s pleasure center and is caused by releasing dopamine. This surge of pleasant feelings can be easily addictive.
What makes Vicodin® particularly difficult to stop is the body’s adjustment to dopamine surges. Eventually, the body develops a tolerance to dopamine which increases the amount of drugs required to reach the same feeling of euphoria. This produces a vicious cycle of dependency that can be extremely difficult to stop on your own.
