Percocet is the brand name for a formulation of the opioid painkiller oxycodone and acetaminophen. Used to treat moderate to severe pain, Percocet is safe to use, provided a physician’s instructions are followed. Percocet abuse, on the other hand, is a gateway into addiction.
All opioids are habit forming – the longer they’re used, the more a person has to take to feel the same effects. Eventually, Percocet abuse turns to addiction. Percocet addiction is treatable, but recovery from Percocet abuse can be difficult and unpleasant. A detox center should be the first step in a lasting recovery.
