1. According to the DEA, consuming large quantities of Vicodin in the way that many addicts do can cause “slow breathing that can lead to a loss of consciousness and death.” Rehab can help you avoid this dangerous fate.
2. Individuals who quit abusing Vicodin are much more likely to relapse, and to overdose when they do so, than those who attend a rehab program.
3. The clinicians at a Vicodin rehab center can become a large part of your recovery: helping you through withdrawal, discussing your needs with you, and ensuring that you find a safe and beneficial aftercare program to transition into once rehab is finished.
4. “Many drug-addicted individuals also have other mental disorders,” and often, they do not even realize it (NIDA). Rehab can help you unearth the complex psychological disorder(s) which may be feeding your addiction and provide treatment that helps you with both issues instead of just one.
5. Vicodin abusers take the drug in order to feel its euphoria-causing psychological effects. However, after attending rehab, you will no longer feel constantly compelled to abuse the drug, therefore helping you avoid other side effects of Vicodin abuse, which according to the NLM include
- Mood swings
- Problems urinating
- Dry mouth
- Dangerous respiratory depression
6. You will avoid the effects of acetaminophen overuse which can include liver damage and jaundice. Because many Vicodin abusers ignore the fact that acetaminophen is present in the drug, they are often caught off-guard by these effects after years of drug abuse.
7. Those who seriously and successfully make an effort to change their lives via rehab are often able to better reconnect with their family members, friends, and significant others who have become fed up with their drug abuse. Rehab centers often have family counseling as well where a person can work on their relationships with those closest to them. This also helps them build a stronger overall recovery.

8. In Vicodin rehab, patients not only receive medication and discuss their drug abuse in therapy sessions. They also learn practical ways to continue fighting cravings and avoiding triggers which they can use long after the treatment program has ended.
9. Many rehab programs associated with Vicodin abuse help patients with legal as well as financial matters. Often, these facilities have someone on staff who can advocate for a patient in the event of drug-related legal problems, and clinicians will also help patients find a job and become more financially secure.
10. In whatever way it can be done, rehab will help you stop abusing Vicodin and gain control of your actions so that you are no longer ruled by your cravings. Some individuals are able to achieve total abstinence through treatment, others prefer long-term methadone treatment or another maintenance program. However is best for you, though, rehab will help end Vicodin’s hold on your life.
