How Big a Problem are Prescription Opioids Like Roxicodone in Virginia?

The opioid crisis has been an enormous public health problem in Virginia, and prescription opioids like Roxicodone have been a major driver of the crisis. Roxicodone is a brand name for oxycodone hydrochloride, a powerful opioid pain reliever that is used to treat moderate to severe pain when around-the-clock pain relief is needed for an extended period of time. It can be a very effective pain reliever when used properly, but used improperly it can produce a euphoric high, which gives it a high potential for excessive use, dependency, and addiction.

The Stamford Institute for Economic Policy Research published a policy paper in 2019 that included data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) that shows a strong correlation between a drastic increase in the clinical use of opioid medications between the years 2000 and 2010 and a 300 percent increase in deaths involving opioid overdose during that same period.

Doctors have attempted to help remedy this situation, as shown by data shared by the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association (VHHA) that showed a considerable decline in the number of opioid prescriptions given out in 2015 and 2016, but even so, the danger of developing an addiction to prescription opioids like Roxicodone remains for people who are still prescribed these medications, and Roxies can still be obtained illegally.

The Virginia Department of Health recently reported a number of startling facts about how opioid use affected the lives of Virginians in 2022:

  • 2,490 total drug overdose deaths
  • 79% of these deaths in Virginia involved opioids
  • 22,398 emergency department visits involving drug overdose
  • 412 Virginia infants under 1 year old hospitalized with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) from maternal opioid use

If prescription opioids like Roxicodone have had a negative impact on your life or the life of a friend or family member, know that you aren’t alone. We are here to help you. Call us now at 877-773-3869 or schedule a callback with the button below to learn more about Roxicodone Detox.


What To Expect From Our Roxicodone Detox Program In Richmond, VA

Prescription opioids like Roxicodone can be particularly difficult to detox from, so choosing the right treatment program is a crucial first step on the road to addiction recovery. We are here to help you through this process from beginning to end. Here’s what you can expect when you decide to try Roxicodone Detox using the Coleman Method:

Getting Started:

Start by calling us at 877-773-3869 or use our convenient online form to schedule a callback from one of our Care Advocates. During this initial call, your Care Advocate will answer any questions you may have about the Coleman Institute’s approach to Roxicodone detox, and they will also help you decide when you want to start treatment. Treatment can typically be scheduled within 1 week of this call – there is no waiting list.

Before Your Appointment:

We will ask you to stop using your Roxicodone 16 to 48 hours before your first scheduled appointment, based on guidance from our physicians. We will also ask you to arrange to have a support person present with you for the duration of your detox and for 48 hours after detox is completed. While you are detoxing, you should not drive a motor vehicle and you should be monitored at all times to ensure that you are safe and comfortable.

Your 1st Appointment:

When you arrive at your first appointment, you will be in mild withdrawal from stopping the use of Roxicodone 16 to 48 hours prior to this appointment. One of our licensed, experienced practitioners will assess your condition and give you tailored doses of comfort medications to alleviate any uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms you may be experiencing. You will also be given micro-dose Naltrexone.

Intermediate Appointments:

The intermediate days of the Roxicodone detox program are very similar to the initial appointment. Your practitioner will continue to give you tailored doses of comfort medications according to your individual needs, and they will continue to give you micro-dose Naltrexone.

Final Appointment:

By the time of your final appointment, you will have made significant progress toward detoxing from Roxicodone. On this last day, you will rest comfortably in a private room in our Richmond, VA detox center while the remaining opioids are gently removed from your brain, a process that can typically take around 6 to 8 hours. During this time, you will be monitored closely by our practitioners to ensure that you are safe and that detox is going as it should. After this final appointment, detox is complete. To support your recovery in the coming weeks, you will be given long-acting Naltrexone in the form of either an injection or an implant. Either method will slowly release Naltrexone into your system over the course of several weeks, blocking your opioid receptors and reducing your cravings. This helps you while you take the steps to build healthier habits that will allow you to live a new, addiction-free life.


Why The Coleman Institute’s Roxicodone Detox Program – The Fast And Comfortable Option

Roxicodone is a very potent prescription opioid, and most people who attempt to stop using it on their own experience severe withdrawal symptoms that cause them to quickly realize that they will most likely need professional help to quit. Here are a some of the more common options for medical detoxification available in the Richmond, VA area:


Because it is such a potent opioid, trying to stop Roxicodone can be especially uncomfortable and dangerous. Trying to stop Roxicodone suddenly by “going cold turkey” with no medical supervision can result in severe physical and mental discomfort, and could even be life-threatening. Some people try to self-detox by gradually tapering off their usual dose of Roxicodone in an attempt to wean themselves off of it. This almost never succeeds. People who try self-detoxing usually end up relapsing in an effort to relieve withdrawal symptoms. Because of this high probability of relapse and the potential health risks involved, we do not recommend trying to self-detox.

Inpatient Detox:

Inpatient Roxicodone detox requires a patient to have a long stay in a hospital or rehab facility where medical professionals monitor the patient’s condition and administer medications to help with pain and discomfort while they detox. The length of an inpatient rehab stay can vary depending on the status of the patient, but it can go on for as long as 30 days or more. Such a long stay in an inpatient program can be extremely disruptive to daily life and can also be very expensive.

Ultra Rapid Opioid Detoxification (URD or UROD):

In this inpatient detox method, a hospitalized patient is put under general anesthesia and given opioid antagonists like Naltrexone intravenously. This method can fully flush the opioids out of a patient’s system in as little as five minutes, but it is very expensive and can have serious health risks. There have been some reported fatalities following this treatment. Because of the potential risks, our clinic has not performed an Ultra Rapid Detox since 2001.

Methadone or Buprenorphine:

Methadone and Buprenorphine have been useful medications for helping people suffering from Roxicodone addiction. When administered by an addiction specialist, they can help transition a patient away from a more dangerous opioid like Roxicodone and onto a relatively safer, legal (when prescribed) alternative. But Methadone and Buprenorphine are still opioids. Patients will still have to detox from them if and when they decide to stop using opioids altogether, and stopping their use can still cause withdrawal symptoms. Most of our patients who have tried Methadone or Buprenorphine treatment have told us that it can be harder to detox from them than it is to detox from other opioids.

Our Outpatient Roxicodone Detox Program:

Our Roxicodone Detox program is an outpatient program that uses a tailored regimen of comfort medications along with Naltrexone Therapy to help people who are suffering from Roxicodone dependence detox safely in as little as 3-8 days without the costs or risks of other methods of detox and with as little disruption to their daily lives as possible. We think our 98% completion rate speaks for itself.
