Oxycodone addiction treatment can be easily customizable. It usually consists of a detox program first, and thereafter, therapy paired with medication or classes that teach independent living skills. Finding the right treatment plan can be tricky, as each patient has different needs. Even the medications used in oxycodone detox will vary from one patient to another.

Addicts will need more than just oxycodone detox. They’ll need a complex treatment plan consisting of behavioral therapy, counseling and more.
