VICODIN REHAB

Victory Bay Drug Guide

Vicodin is a combination of acetaminophen and hydrocodone that’s used as a medication for patients experiencing moderate to severe pain. Because it stimulates the pleasure center of the brain to reduce the feelings of pain, those who use it can also experience a “high” that may cause them to crave it.

Like many other painkillers, Vicodin addiction is not uncommon; in 2016, more than 10 million individuals age 12 and over said they used Vicodin non-medically in the last 12 months. The drug makes up nearly half of the prescription painkiller market, which means many individuals addicted to painkillers are taking Vicodin.

  • A feeling of euphoria
  • Increased happiness
  • An overall calmness and relaxation
  • Increased feelings of well-being

  • Sedation

When individuals use Vicodin on a regular basis, they’ll need to increase their dosage in order to experience the same effects.
