Living with a Percocet addiction can lead to devastating physical and mental consequences, including being unable to stop Percocet abuse on your own. At We Level Up, our Percocet detox program is designed to help you through the difficult first stage of sobriety.
Understanding Percocet Addiction
Percocet is a prescription opioid that can be incredibly addictive. Thankfully, several evidence-based treatment methods can help people break through Percocet withdrawal and finally achieve recovery.
Percocet’s active ingredient, hydrocodone, shares many properties with well-known addictive substances, such as heroin, morphine, and fentanyl, and even people who only take their medication as prescribed can find themselves addicted.
When people take Percocet for prolonged periods, their brains and bodies adjust to only feel “normal” while they have Percocet in their system. If they suddenly stop or cut down on their Percocet abuse, people can experience severe withdrawal symptoms that can lead them straight back to their addiction.

Signs of Percocet Addiction
Percocet addiction can be subtle, and many people may not even recognize that they have a problem until it is too late. Learning to identify the signs and symptoms of Percocet addiction can help people determine when they need to seek professional treatment.
Common signs of addiction include:
- Tolerance, or needing to take more Percocet to achieve the desired effect
- Withdrawal symptoms if Percocet use is suddenly stopped
- Continuing to use Percocet despite social, physical, or mental health consequences
- Intense drug cravings for Percocet
- Loss of interest in hobbies or activities outside of Percocet abuse
- Taking more pain medication than prescribed
Many people who have a Percocet addiction can find themselves struggling financially, losing their jobs, or having a host of physical problems as a result of their drug use. Addiction can quickly encompass a person’s entire life, affecting not only the person with a substance abuse problem but their friends, families, and communities as well.
If you’ve begun to notice any of the symptoms of Percocet addiction in yourself or a loved one, the time to seek treatment is now. Receiving treatment for addiction and any co-occurring mental health disorders can help you learn valuable skills and find medications that treat your symptoms effectively.
Percocet Withdrawal Symptoms
Part of the difficulty in helping people recover from their drug addiction is the intensive physical withdrawal symptoms that so often stand in the way of people achieving abstinence on their own.
Many people who can recognize that their substance abuse is becoming a problem will attempt to cut down or quit, only to be faced with severe opioid withdrawals that pull them back into Percocet use.
As an opioid, Percocet carries some severe physical withdrawal symptoms. Percocet withdrawal is often compared to the worst flu of your life, and while it is not typically life-threatening, many people will relapse before they make it through the first week of withdrawals.
Common Percocet withdrawal symptoms include:
- Hot and cold flashes
- Shakes or tremors
- Drug cravings
Thankfully, several different options exist to treat opioid withdrawal at We Level Up’s Percocet detox center.

How Detox Can Help
A Percocet detox is a specialized medical facility that focuses on helping people overcome the difficult first stage of the recovery process. Specifically, a medical detox can substantially reduce or even eliminate the symptoms of Percocet withdrawal by using targeted medications and treatments designed to treat opioid withdrawal symptoms.
Several medications have been approved for treating opioid addiction, including medications such as Suboxone and buprenorphine. These drugs are referred to as partial opioid agonists, which means they function by activating the same receptors within the brain and body as Percocet but to a much lesser degree. Using these medications can help remove the severe symptoms of withdrawal without producing the euphoric effects that make Percocet so addictive.
Medical detox also offers a safe and secure facility designed to make the withdrawal process as simple and comfortable as possible.
Clients at our Percocet detox center can focus their entire energy on their recovery without having to deal with triggers from the outside world, the temptation to abuse Percocet, or stressors that can weigh on them while they are starting their recovery journey.
Clients at our detox facility are also under 24/7 medical observation to ensure that they are safe, comfortable, and getting the treatment they need at all hours of the day. Our team will also work to ensure that all your needs are accounted for so you can focus your time and energy on feeling better.

The Detox Process
Upon being admitted to our medical detox center, clients struggling with Percocet addiction will undergo a thorough evaluation and assessment. This step helps our team accurately diagnose a person’s substance use problems and create a customized treatment plan for the withdrawal process.
After a plan is in place, our team will administer targeted medications and track your progress throughout your stay. A typical stay at a detox center can last between one and two weeks or until you are feeling stable and comfortable in your new sobriety.
Finally, people who have completed detox will have a carefully planned transition of care to an addiction treatment facility. While medical detox is an important first step, it must be followed by professional addiction treatment in order to produce long-term sobriety.
We Level Up helps facilitate this process and can connect people to one of our residential rehabs, inpatient treatment options, or a partial hospitalization program.
