First of all the active ingredient in this drug is Oxycodone and it was invented in Germany in 1916, it is one of many semi synthetic opioids. The developers were trying to come up with an improved alternative to morphine. Roxicode is prescribed for moderate and severe pain.

If you or some one you know has become addicted like this and would like to know how to beat oxycodone addiction then I would suggest that you should talk to the prescribing physician, they can give you a plan that will help taper you off of them without going through roxy withdrawal. I know that withdrawal from any type of oxycodone can be just as bad as heroin withdrawal.
If tapering off of roxies does not work for you then there is another way to stop using roxy’s and it is called oxycodone treatment. If you decide to go then you can rest assured that a staff of professionals will make sure that you suffer very little pain from your roxy withdrawal. This process will only take a few days but when you are finished I would go to residential treatment this will improve your odds of remaining drug free when you leave rehab.

Roxicodone are powerful pain pills that like any other medicine one can become addicted to and many people who are also have an oxycodone addiction. Beyond the physical cravings every addict has mental thoughts that encourage use or quitting. Finding treatment isn’t always easy.

Roxy's may be a gateway to heroin
Here is why abusing Roxicodone can lead to heroin addiction. For starters in some places Oxyconin and Oxycodone can cost $30 for just one pill. Now keep in mind that if you have been using them for a while you are going to have a tolerance and one is not going to do it for you anymore; furthermore, if you are buying them on the streets you will be in close contact with people that are selling and using heroin.
One day you may not be able to get any roxies and are starting to get sick so you decide to use some heroin and find that you can get a bag of dope for like ten bucks. Next thing you know you are telling yourself you are saving money using heroin and before you know it you are addicted to heroin.
The thing is heroin is a lot more dangerous than roxicodone but if you happen to be addicted to either or any other drug you should keep in mind that it is possible with a little hard work to learn how to overcome addiction at least this has been my experience. One way to start your Opiate addiction recovery would be by making a commitment to attend meetings on a daily basis this worked for me many years ago and is still working today; furthermore, 12 step meetings like NA are keeping addicts clean and sober around the world.
All I can say is that if you really want to beat an addiction to opiates you will have to come up with a plan and take massive action because addiction is a disease that is cunning, baffling, and powerful and if you are not doing something that pertains to your recovery every single day you run the risk of an opiate related relapse. One thing people in recovery do is attend 12 step meetings regularly get a sponsor and call them when they need to and most of all when they don't. I have a sponsor that is also my best friend.
One thing I am sure of of is this- any addict and I mean absolutely any addict can stop using drugs, lose the desire to use them, and find a new way to live clean and sober.
