About Hydrocodone Use & Addiction

Hydrocodone is a semi-synthetic opioid created from codeine that is used to treat moderate to severe pain. It is often formulated with other medications such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen and administered for analgesia or as a cough suppressant.

Branded as things like Vicodin, Norco, or Lortab, hydrocodone is powerfully addictive and even when used infrequently, can lead to hydrocodone abuse. According to the Drug Enforcement Administration, more than 24 million people over the age of 12 have used the drug for non-medical reasons.

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.

Medications that Contain Hydrocodone

Many different prescription medications contain the synthetic opiate Hydrocodone. They are all used for the same purpose – as pain medicine – and all carry the same effects of dependence from long-term use.

Medications that contain hydrocodone include:

  • Vicodin
    • Vicodin is a combination of acetaminophen and hydrocodone that’s used as a medication for patients experiencing moderate to severe pain.
  • Norco
    • Norco is a tablet combination of hydrocodone and acetaminophen used to treat patients with moderate to severe pain.
  • Lortab
  • Lorcet
  • Vicoprofen
Hydrocodone Abuse


Like other painkillers, hydrocodone can not only block the feeling of pain but can also produce a high in those who use the drug, leading to hydrocodone addiction.

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.

Some common symptoms include:

  • A heightened sense of well-being
  • Overall relaxation
  • A state of euphoria
  • Reduced worry or stress
  • Sedation
  • A warming sensation

Dangers & Effects on Hydrocodone

Over time, regular use of Vicodin can create a tolerance in the body that requires the user to take more in order to achieve the same effect. This is how dependence is created and what leads individuals to seek hydrocodone recovery.

Some of the drug’s short-term and long-term effects include:

Short-term effects of Hydrocodone Use

  • Slowed or shallow breathing
  • Itchy or flushed skin
  • Constipation
  • Nausea
  • Dry mouth
  • Confusion or poor judgment
  • Drowsiness

Long-term effects of Hydrocodone Use

  • Tremors or spasms
  • Swelling in hands or feet
  • Anxiety
  • Increased risk of heart problems
  • Muscle weakness
  • Sleep issues
  • Respiratory depression
  • Bladder and/or bowel issues

Withdrawal Symptoms from Hydrocodone Use

Once a person is addicted to hydrocodone, it can be extremely difficult to stop. 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.

When someone is dependent on it and suddenly removes it, their body begins to overwork itself in order to recover and they may experience symptoms such as:

  • Body aches
  • Diarrhea
  • Mental health issues like anxiety or depression
  • Sweating and/or shivering
  • Hallucinations
  • Nausea and/or vomiting
  • Fatigue

How Does Outpatient Rehab Work?


Your treatment may start with detox. During this period, your body will begin to rid itself of the poisonous toxins from Vicodin use. You can expect to experience mild to severe withdrawals. Some of your withdrawals may be severe enough that you will need supervision or even medication. However, within a few days, you will start to feel better and hopeful.

Outpatient Treatment

During outpatient rehab, you will receive education, therapy, and lots of support from professionals, family, and a support group. Everyone will be rooting for you as you achieve each phase of your treatment. The program is extended so that you have time to reach your treatment goals.

We provide a wide range of treatments that are suited to your particular situations and needs. Our outpatient rehab program allows you to continue your day-to-day routine, such as going to work or taking care of family matters. You can set a time for your meetings that works around your regular schedule.

Your outpatient treatment will allow you to go more deeply into your addiction, any mental issues you may be suffering from, and your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs. We offer holistic treatment that heals your whole self and doesn’t just address the addiction. We believe in a full recovery that gives you an overall sense of wellness.
