Norco Rehab

Victory Bay Drug Guide

Norco is a tablet combination of hydrocodone and acetaminophen used to treat patients with moderate to severe pain. This type of opioid works in the brain and nervous system to block feelings of pain and in addition, can produce a euphoric “high” that causes users to crave it.

Since 1992, the recreational use of opioids has tripled and 99 percent of the hydrocodone supply is consumed by those in the U.S. Unfortunately, teens are one of the largest groups of individuals to develop a Norco addiction; in a 2013 survey, more than 850,000 teens aged 12-17 admitted abusing a hydrocodone product.

Norco Abuse


Because users often develop a tolerance to painkillers, it’s easy to experience Norco abuse. This means many of those taking Norco for its euphoric effects will continually increase their dosage to achieve the same effects. These effects include:

  • A state of euphoria
  • Overall relaxation
  • Relief from anxiety
  • Increased happiness
  • A warming sensation
  • Increased feeling of well-being

When those using Norco develop a Norco dependence, it can be both psychological and physical. Users can experience both short-term and long-term effects from its use that include:

Short-term effects include:

  • Lightheadedness
  • Nausea and/or vomiting
  • Drowsiness

Once a person’s body is dependent on Norco, it can be hard for them to stop using the drug. Once they do, they may experience withdrawal symptoms within 72 hours that can last up to six weeks. This is why we recommend Norco withdrawal help; withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Excessive sweating
  • Restlessness
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Insomnia
  • Depression
  • Anxiety or agitation
