The Addiction to Oxycodone or its brand names OxyContin or Endone, can be helped much like an Addiction to Heroin can be helped.
Briefly Oxycodone is an OPIOD AGONIST as it binds to the receptors in the body which in turn produces a biological response, creating a high. It can be used to excess giving a person a more intense high and as it is physically addictive the combination can create Addiction rather quickly and easily.
OxyContin is a Prescription Medication used for pain management. To clarify it is actually a trade name for a Drug called ‘Oxycondone Hydrochloride’ which belongs to a larger classification of Drugs called Opiod Analgesics.

and will do anything in their power to get their hands on them! The chemists all need to join their databases to fix this problem. It is, very sad! There is needing them for people who are in excruciating pain, and then there is abusing them and using all the excuses under the sun just to use them.
Which most likely will not happen till I'm 50 I'm under 40 atm. I take oxycontin to mange on going knee pain. Against doctors recommendation I take less than I should. I will have to put up with the pain till I'm old enough to have a knee replacement. I don't how it managed in other sates but where I live it has to be authorised by the pain clinic and you can only get from one doctor or doctors surgery. So unless your on that list you can't get anywhere else. Knowing that I will have to take for a long time I keep to only taking it on days where I can't even walk to the bathroom and I've tried everything else.
People in severe pain who don't get the correct help have a higher rate of suicide because, who can live in debilitating pain and have quality of life. People need to understand the other end of the spectrum too, as you've described.
I get very annoyed when some dr's play God with your life & refuse to get you the right balance in medication that you need. I'm very lucky to have a wonderful GP & 2 fantastic specialist. Totally agree Anna, it's a very difficult balance and a very complex issue.
