How Big a Problem are Opioids like Vicodin in Virginia?

The opioid crisis in Virginia is one of the biggest public health problems facing the state, and prescription pain relievers like Vicodin have been a large part of the problem.

Vicodin is a pain medication that contains hydrocodone, a powerful, highly addictive opioid. Most people start taking Vicodin quite innocently to relieve pain, but this can quickly lead to dependence, even after just one use. In 2019, the Stamford Institute for Economic Policy Research published a policy brief that cited data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) that shows a strong correlation between a steep rise in the clinical use of prescription opioids like Vicodin between the years 2000 and 2010 and a 300 percent increase in deaths involving those opioids.

The Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association (VHHA) released data in 2018 that shows that doctors in Virginia have greatly reduced the amount of opioids they prescribe, but those who do still receive these medications are still at risk of developing a dependence, and these drugs can still be obtained through illegal means.

And in December 2023, the Virginia Department of Health shared a number of startling facts about the impact of opioids in Virginia in 2022:

  • 2,490 total deaths from drug overdose
  • 79% of these drug overdose deaths involved opioids
  • 22,398 visits to emergency departments due to drug overdose
  • 412 Virginia infants under 1 year old hospitalized with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) from maternal opioid use

What To Expect From Our Vicodin Detox Program In Richmond, VA

When you decide you want to stop using Vicodin, choosing the right detox program is a crucial step toward recovery. Here’s what you can expect from the Vicodin Detox process at the Coleman Institute in Richmond, VA:

Getting Started:

Get started by calling our Richmond office now at 877-773-3869 or request a callback from one of the Care Advocates on our Richmond, VA team. During this initial call, our Richmond Care Advocates will answer any and all questions you may have about our approach to Vicodin Detox and help you schedule your detox. We can typically schedule treatment quickly – we do not have a waiting list.

Before Your Appointment:

We will ask that you stop taking your Vicodin 16 to 48 hours before your first scheduled appointment, based on guidance from our experienced physicians. We will also ask that you bring a support person with you to treatment, and that this support person be available to stay with you for the duration of your detox program and for 48 hours after your detox is completed. When you are in detox, you should not drive motor vehicles and you should be monitored at all times to ensure your comfort and safety.

Your 1st Appointment:

At the time of your 1st appointment, you will be in mild withdrawal from stopping the use of your Vicodin 16 to 48 hours prior to the appointment. After you arrive, one of our licensed, experienced practitioners will begin your tailored regimen of comfort medications, which continues throughout the day, to help relieve your withdrawal symptoms. Your practitioner will also administer microdose Naltrexone.

Intermediate Appointments:

Intermediate Vicodin detox appointments are much like the 1st appointment. You will continue to receive your comfort medications throughout the day, with dosages tailored to your individual needs, and you can continue to receive micro-dose Naltrexone.

Final Appointment:

At the time of your final appointment, you will have made significant progress in detoxing from Vicodin. At this appointment, you will rest comfortably in a private room at our Richmond, VA detox center where you will be closely monitored while the remaining Vicodin is gently removed from your brain. This final leg of the process typically takes about 6 to 8 hours. After this appointment is over, your detox is complete and you will be given long-lasting Naltrexone to help support your recovery in the coming weeks. Many patients find that this Naltrexone treatment gives them the support they need to get started on building their new life, free from addiction.


Why Choose The Coleman Institute’s Accelerated Vicodin Detox Program – The Fast And Comfortable Option

Most people who are dependent on Vicodin cannot stop using it without experiencing severe withdrawal symptoms. They quickly realize that to successfully quit, they need to seek out a medical detox program and get professional help. Here are some common Vicodin detox options that can be found in the Richmond, VA area:


Trying to stop Vicodin use without assistance can be uncomfortable and extremely dangerous. “Going cold turkey” and suddenly stopping Vicodin use with no medical help can result in extreme physical and mental discomfort and could even be life threatening in some cases. Trying to taper off your Vicodin dose and “wean” yourself off of the drug almost never works. Most people who try to self-detox end up relapsing to alleviate their withdrawal symptoms. Because of this high probability of relapse and the potential health dangers, we do not recommend that anyone attempt to self-detox from Vicodin.

Inpatient Detox:

Inpatient Vicodin detox requires a long stay in a rehab facility or hospital where medical professionals can monitor the patient and administer medications to help with the pain and discomfort of withdrawal. The length of the stay varies depending on the patient’s needs, but it can last for upwards of 30 days in some scenarios. A long stay in rehab can be very disruptive to a patient’s life and could end up being very expensive.

Ultra Rapid Opioid Detoxification (URD or UROD):

Ultra rapid opioid detox is an inpatient detox method where a patient is hospitalized, put under general anesthesia, and given opioid antagonists like Naltrexone intravenously. This is a very fast method of detox that can fully flush the drugs out of a patient’s system in as little as 5 minutes, but it is an extremely expensive treatment and it could have serious medical risks. There have been reported fatalities that have occurred after treatment. Because of the potential risks involved, the Coleman Institute stopped performing Ultra Rapid Detox in 2001.

Methadone or Buprenorphine:

Methadone and Burprenorphone have been useful in helping people suffering from Vicodin addiction by transitioning them away from Vicodin and onto comparatively less dangerous legal (when prescribed) alternatives. When Methadone and Buprenorphine are administered by professionals, they can be very effective, but it is important to keep in mind that Methadone and Buprenorphine are opioids. Once a patient decides that they want to stop using opioids altogether, they will still have to detox from the Methadone or Buprenorphine, just like they would have to detox from any other opioid. Most of our patients who have tried this method have said that Methadone and Buprenorphine detox can be more difficult than detoxing from other opioids.

Our Outpatient Vicodin Detox Program:

Outpatient Vicodin Detox using The Coleman Method uses a tailored regiment of comfort medications and Naltrexone Therapy to help patients safely detox from Vicodin in as little as 3-8 days with fewer risks and costs than other detox options and with as little disruption to daily life as possible. We’ve treated over 8,500 patients with the Coleman Method and we have a 98% completion rate.
