Suburban Hydrocodone Use

Suburban Hydrocodone Use

Many drugs addicts who live in suburban areas travel to the city several times a week to support their drug habits. This can end up costing the addict additional money and further damaging her life. No matter where the addict lives, hydrocodone addiction can be extremely dangerous and lead to overdose or death.

Suburban Hydrocodone Use

Suburban drug use leads to many problems, but the suburban environment encourages drug use in the following ways:

  • Proximity
  • Additives/quality
  • Expense

When compared to urban drug use, suburban drug use is often more limited, because they have fewer substances available and may have to travel to buy their drugs. Because of their location, suburban drug addicts often travel long distances, which requires more money and time to buy a quality product. It is also common that a drug is of lower quality once it hits the streets of a suburban community. Dealers may alter the drug or dilute the substance in other powders to increase the amount of drugs they have. This can cause users to ingest unknown substances that they believe is only hydrocodone. Lastly, the expense to dealers of travelling to remote locations can make the product cost more in suburban locations.

How Can Suburban Residents Get Help for Hydrocodone Addiction?

Some suburban locations may be remote, depending on their location. Because of this, addicts may find it difficult to attend addiction treatment. However, suburban drug addicts can find help from the following sources:

  • Inpatient treatment
  • Family support
  • Strong support systems

Depending on the addict’s location, she may need to seek inpatient treatment in urban locations. Inpatient treatment will help the addict in several ways. First, the addict will be removed from her current environment and attend a treatment center. Second, the addict will receive medical help from professionals to help with withdrawals. After inpatient treatment, the recovering addict may return home, but during this time the recovering addict’s family must be supportive. It is extremely beneficial to build a strong support system of both non drug-using friends and family members. This gives recovering addicts the opportunity to lean on these individuals during times of temptation.
