FDA Hydrocodone Restrictions Lead to Illegal Drug Use? Rapid Detox the Solution?
Date:11/6/2013

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Nov. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to the growing opiate addiction epidemic, the FDA has decided to request that hydrocodone pills be relabeled as a Schedule II drug. Waismann Method rapid detox applauds this as a much needed move by the FDA, due to the epidemic proportions of opiate dependency in this country. Hydrocodone is one of the most abused legal substances, in part because it has had fewer restrictions than other equally addicting painkillers such as OxyContin or Percocet. As a Schedule II drug, it will require hydrocodone users to visit their doctor more often in order to obtain a written prescription when they want a refill.

Because doctors will no longer be able to prescribe as freely in the past, Waismann worries chronic users may be motivated to turn to illegal avenues to get the drug they have become physically dependent on. Another danger is that they may also seek illicit drugs such as heroin, which can be cheaper than prescription painkiller pills.

Waismann recognizes this change could be a challenge for chronically ill hydrocodone users, who use the pills to manage chronic pain. They call on these patients' physicians to compassionately ensure that they provide a steady supply of the recommended dosage.

Because of that, Waismann Method rapid detox hopes people who find themselves addicted to hydrocodone pills seek hydrocodone treatment without shame and judgment.

Physically dependent individuals will need to be guided to a hydrocodone treatment center to address their addiction. For many, long term rehab is simply not a time commitment they can make. In those cases, rapid hydrocodone detox is a viable course. The Waismann Method medical rapid detox has specialized in opiate dependencies over the last 14 years and has treated thousands of individuals with a high number of people who complete the program still opiate free after one year.
