Percocet is a brand-name version of the combination of oxycodone and acetaminophen often prescribed to treat pain. Oxycodone is an opioid that can relieve pain, while acetaminophen is an analgesic that can relieve pain and reduce fevers.
How long Percocet stays in your system can also be determined by the method of use. Using the drug intravenously can be metabolized faster than taking it orally; however, this method can result in a higher risk of overdose or contracting a disease.
Treatment options for Percocet addiction and abuse typically include detox, inpatient rehabilitation, medication-assisted treatment (MAT), and therapy. A medical professional will work closely with the individual to determine the best course of treatment.
A Percocet detox through an outpatient program is less structured, as it does not require patients to stay at the facility. It is often best practice to contact a medical provider for medications to assist with alleviating withdrawal symptoms.
Therapy is also an effective way to help treat addiction and mental health conditions. Many treatment programs use a combination of individual, group, and family therapies for the best results.
