What to Expect at a Percocet
Addiction Treatment Center

Percocet is a common prescription painkiller and opioid drug. Although it can be prescribed by medical providers, it is a highly addictive substance like other opioids. If you or someone you know is experiencing a Percocet addiction or is misusing Percocet, a Percocet addiction treatment center may be able to help. So, what should you know about Percocet addiction, and what can you expect during treatment? First, let’s talk about the signs, symptoms, and causes of Percocet addiction. Then, we’ll discuss what to expect in different levels of care used to address Percocet addiction and our programs.

Who Benefits From Drug Rehab for Percocet Addiction?

Someone who misuses Percocet or experiences the signs and symptoms of Percocet addiction is most likely to benefit from care at a Percocet drug rehab center. Understanding what to look for in yourself or someone you know can help you identify Percocet addiction. 


Misusing Percocet can have serious consequences on one’s health, relationships, occupation, and other parts of life. While everyone experiences addiction differently, here are some common signs of Percocet addiction to look out for.

  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when not taking Percocet or taking Percocet to avoid withdrawals
  • Spending a large portion of time obtaining, using, or recovering from the effects of Percocet
  • Needing to consume larger amounts of Percocet than before to achieve desired effects
  • Continuing to use Percocet despite negative effects on interpersonal relationships
  • Using Percocet in situations where it’s risky to do so (such as while driving)
  • Trouble fulfilling responsibilities at work, school, or home due to Percocet use
  • Doctor shopping, stealing, lying, or forging prescriptions to obtain Percocet
  • Continuing to use Percocet despite negative physical or mental health effects 
  • Giving up or reducing activities one typically enjoys due to Percocet use
  • Taking more Percocet than intended or using it for longer than intended 
  • Failure to stop using Percocet despite attempts to do so
  • Cravings or a strong urge to use Percocet

Changes in appearance or personal hygiene are common. Some people experience job loss, loss of child custody, financial problems, or other devastating experiences resulting from misusing prescription drugs like Percocet. 


Misusing Percocet can come with a number of mental and physical health effects. Mental and physical symptoms of Percocet addiction include but aren’t limited to the following. 

  • Slurred speech
  • Slowed heart rate
  • Slowed psychomotor activity
  • Drowsiness, fatigue, or exhaustion
  • Poor judgment and decision-making skills
  • Trouble focusing or concentrating
  • Changes in weight or appetite
  • Increased anger or irritability
  • Shallow breathing 
  • Mood swings
  • Constipation

Overdose, seizures, coma, organ damage, and death are some of the serious adverse consequences that can occur when you abuse Percocet. The risk of severe adverse effects is higher if you take Percocet alongside other drugs, including alcohol.

Causes of Percocet Addiction

There’s no singular known cause of Percocet addiction. Some people who attend a Percocet addiction treatment center have addictions that began after they were prescribed the drug formally by a medical professional. Others may have started using the drug for another reason. That said, some factors increase the risk of Percocet addiction, including but not limited to:

  • Family history of a substance use disorder, specifically if it is an immediate family member, such as a parent.
  • Personal history of a substance use disorder or another mental health condition, such as depression.
  • Environmental or social factors, such as easy access to Percocet, being around others who use Percocet, and peer pressure. 

Regardless of the origins of a person’s addiction, a Percocet substance abuse program can help. Addiction can affect anyone, and knowing what to look for in a Percocet addiction treatment center can help you find the right fit for yourself or a loved one.

Percocet Substance Abuse Program Types

A Percocet addiction treatment center may offer a number of different levels of care or treatment options. Each level of care will give you a different level of supervision and require a different time commitment. Here’s what you can expect in the levels of care that might be used at a Percocet addiction treatment center. 

Residential inpatient

Residential inpatient treatment can be ideal for those facing substance abuse because it provides the most extensive level of supervision and support. When a client attends residential treatment for Percocet addiction, they eat, sleep, and live at the treatment facility for the duration of their care. Residential inpatient allows you to focus on your recovery in a supportive environment, attend multiple therapies (often, individual, group, and family therapy), engage in reaction activities, and get intensive care from a complete range of treatment staff. 


The main difference between residential inpatient and outpatient treatment is that clients live outside of their treatment facility when receiving outpatient care. In outpatient treatment for Percocet abuse, clients engage in individual therapy and groups and work with a team of professionals for roughly twenty hours per week or less, distributed over three to five days per week. Many clients step down to outpatient care after residential inpatient to help them transition into life outside of a treatment center, though some people choose to start with intensive outpatient care. 

Partial hospitalization

Partial hospitalization programs (PHP) for Percocet addiction and other concerns are somewhat similar to other outpatient programs. However, PHP provides a higher level of support than standard outpatient care and requires a larger time commitment. For example, the partial hospitalization programs at Centric Behavioral Health facilities have clients attend treatment for six to eight hours per day, five days a week. Activities are more intensive and much like those in a residential inpatient program, but you get to sleep at home.

Dual diagnosis

It is very common for people with substance use disorders to live with at least one additional mental health disorder. Dual diagnosis is a term used to describe the presence of a substance use disorder and at least one co-occurring mental health diagnosis. Examples of co-occurring mental health disorders can include but aren’t limited to depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and related disorders, personality disorders, obsessive-compulsive and related disorders, and anxiety disorders. Dual diagnosis treatment works to address multiple client concerns at once and can be utilized at any level of care.


Detoxification, also called medical detox, helps clients stop using drugs and alcohol in a safe and supportive environment. Since withdrawal symptoms can be dangerous, uncomfortable, or keep someone in the cycle of using, attending detoxification can be necessary or incredibly helpful. Some people attend detoxification before entering another level of care.
