Signs and Symptoms of Vicodin Addiction

Knowing what to look out for can help you identify Vicodin addiction in yourself or a loved one. Signs and symptoms of Vicodin addiction can be physical, behavioral, or mental. Some of the effects of Vicodin abuse can affect your life forever, but there is always hope.

Physical Symptoms

To start, let’s go over the physical symptoms that can result from using Vicodin. Possible physical symptoms of Vicodin abuse can include but aren't limited to the following. 


  • Nausea, vomiting, constipation, or an upset stomach
  • Changes in psychomotor activity (slowed body movements)
  • Changes in appearance or personal hygiene 
  • Liver damage or liver failure
  • Ringing in the ears 
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Muscle weakness
  • Slowed heartbeat
  • Constricted pupils
  • Jaundice 
  • Seizures 
  • Cravings 
  • Itchiness
  • Fatigue 


Vicodin addiction can be deadly or lead to other serious consequences. When someone consumes alcohol or another drug while taking Vicodin, it increases the likelihood of severe adverse events such as seizures, coma, or death. 

Behavioral and Mental Signs

Personality changes and other behavioral, mental, or emotional differences are often seen in those who face addiction to prescription Opioids. Behavioral and mental signs of Vicodin addiction can include but aren't limited to the following. 


  • A fixation on obtaining and consuming Vicodin
  • Continuing to use Vicodin despite attempts to quit or wishing one could stop
  • "Doctor shopping," stealing, or going to other lengths, like forging a prescription, to obtain the drug
  • Absenteeism in the workplace or neglecting other responsibilities (e.g., school or child care) 
  • Taking Vicodin when one should not (e.g. when driving or operating heavy machinery)
  • Becoming increasingly secretive or private in attempts to conceal one's addiction
  • Becoming distant from loved ones or social withdrawal 
  • Withdrawing from activities one previously enjoyed due to Vicodin use 
  • Poor judgment or decision-making skills
  • Trouble focusing or concentrating
  • Hallucinations or delusions
  • Anger or irritability 
  • Memory problems 
  • Mood swings 
  • Paranoia
  • Anxiety


Many people with an addiction to Opioid drugs like Vicodin face financial problems due to the amount of money they spend on drug use. Legal consequences can be another concern. For example, if one is caught stealing to obtain Vicodin. 


There's no single cause to point to when it comes to Vicodin addiction. Like addiction to other substances, Vicodin addiction can affect anyone. Some factors raise the risk of Vicodin addiction, which include but aren't limited to the following. 


  • Family history: Having a first-degree relative with a substance use disorder increases your risk of developing one, too. 
  • Other conditions: Those with other mental health conditions (e.g., Bipolar disorder, Depression) can be at a greater risk of substance use disorders. 
  • Environment: Access to Vicodin and other environmental factors, such as being around other people who use it recreationally, can increase the likelihood of addiction.

Regardless of the cause of addiction, finding a Vicodin addiction treatment center with a program that meets your needs can help.

Vicodin Addiction Substance
Abuse Program Options

Evidence-based practices are critical in drug rehab for Vicodin addiction. The most effective Vicodin addiction substance abuse program will help you address any relevant underlying concerns, such as trauma or comorbid mental health conditions, provide a range of therapies in individual and group settings, and help you find coping skills. The following levels of care are often utilized at Centric Behavioral Health facilities and other addiction treatment centers. 

Residential inpatient

Residential inpatient treatment can be ideal because it provides 24/7 supervision and support. When a client attends an inpatient Vicodin drug rehab center, they eat, sleep, and live at the treatment facility for the duration of their care. This allows individuals to focus on their recovery in a supportive environment, attend multiple therapies (often, individual group, and family therapy), engage in restorative or otherwise beneficial reaction activities, and access care from a full range of treatment staff. Many people step down to outpatient care after residential inpatient to help them transition into life outside of a Vicodin addiction treatment center, though not always. 


Outpatient treatment allows clients to sleep at home or otherwise outside of their treatment facility while getting care throughout the week. Like inpatient or partial hospitalization programs, individuals in an outpatient Vicodin substance abuse program will typically work with a range of different treatment professionals and will follow a schedule of activities like group and individual therapy. Typically, the time commitment for outpatient treatment is around twenty or fewer hours per week.

Partial hospitalization

Partial hospitalization programs (PHP) are designed to give clients a level of care higher than outpatient but lower than residential inpatient. Typically, PHP requires a time commitment of around twenty or more hours per week.

Dual diagnosis

The term "dual diagnosis" is used for clients who have both a substance use disorder and one or more additional mental health conditions. Dual-diagnosis treatment can occur in residential inpatient, PHP, or outpatient settings. When someone participates in a dual diagnosis treatment program, they work with professionals to address both substance abuse and the other mental health concerns they face to promote lasting recovery and well-being. 


Often, people attend detox prior to entering residential inpatient, PHP, or outpatient services. You can also engage in medical detox without plans to attend a treatment program. Medical detox provides the opportunity to detox from substances safely in a supportive medical environment. Discontinuing the use of substances can be uncomfortable and dangerous. At times, the withdrawal process can also be what keeps someone in the cycle of addiction to Vicodin and other painkillers. Accordingly, medical detox is highly valuable to many clients.
