Learn how to find oxy addiction treatment or a rehab center in your area.

Almost 10 million Americans could be abusing prescription opioids like Oxycontin, while the opioid crisis could be killing 128 of those people daily, according to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health. If you or a loved one needs help with an addiction to Oxy or other opioids, there are several ways to start the search for addiction rehab centers and other treatment facilities. Here’s more on what opioid addiction might look like and how to find the help you need.

Oxycontin Addiction Symptoms

Opioids are powerful pain relievers that also provide a euphoric or “high” sensation. Prescription opioids include:

Addiction means using a drug compulsively despite its harm to your well-being. Symptoms of opioid addiction include:

  • Sleep changes
  • Moodiness
  • Self-isolation
  • Relationship issues
  • Losing track of hygiene
  • Stealing or lying to maintain a habit
  • Legal trouble
  • Abusing prescriptions

Recovering from opioid addiction can require a multi-faceted approach, Jacob Crothers, MD, national medical director of Groups Recover Together, tells WebMD Connect to Care.

“Like other chronic diseases, opioid use disorder is managed with a combination of medications, counseling, and lifestyle changes. Combining all three of these treatment modalities gives patients the best chance of success [or] recovery,” Crothers says.

Here's more on the types of addiction treatment centers and how to access them.

Finding an Addiction Treatment Center Near You

Detox centers: Detox is the most acute part of withdrawal, or when the body rids itself of something it’s addicted to. Detox centers are medical facilities where doctors monitor withdrawal and provide medication to ease the symptoms, which might include:

  • Body aches
  • Blood pressure changes
  • Vomiting 
  • Diarrhea 
  • Sweating 
  • Anxiety 

At-home opioid withdrawal can be dangerous for those with other health conditions or in extreme cases. You can find a detox center near you through:

  • A primary care physician (PCP) referral
  • A referral from your local emergency department
  • Some emergency rooms might also help with the beginning of detox, according to the Association of American Medical Colleges.
  • A community health center
  • The U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) online clinic finder 

Inpatient treatment: Inpatient treatment, or rehab, is a residential stay at a treatment facility, which is usually 30 days or longer. Rehab can include therapy, medication, life skills counseling, and social services. You can find an inpatient facility through:

  • A PCP referral 
  • A detox center referral
  • Community services or a health center
  • The SAMHSA clinic finder
  • Charities like the Salvation Army

As for insurance, most plans cover detox, and Affordable Care Act (ACA) plans, Medicare, and Medicaid are all required to provide some addiction recovery services. If your insurance doesn’t cover an inpatient stay beyond detox, some rehab facilities provide scholarships, while charities can also help.

Outpatient treatment: This includes therapy, medication, and support groups. You can find outpatient treatment through:

  • Support groups like Narcotics Anonymous, which also holds meetings online
  • A PCP referral
  • An online psychologist finder 
  • A community health center
  • The SAMHSA clinic finder
