Insomnia is torture, and sufferers will go to extreme lengths to try to cope with the disorder. Therapy and medication can help, but sometimes people suffering from insomnia neglect getting proper treatment and attempt to handle their insomnia themselves. They may try to use sleep aids, use home remedies, and other techniques they read about online. When these attempts don’t work out, they may resort to more drastic and dangerous devices. Vicodin abuse to cope with insomnia is a dead end. Not only will it not treat your insomnia, but if you continue abusing Vicodin you will become addicted.
Coping with Insomnia
Instead of abusing Vicodin to manage your insomnia, there are other forms of healthy treatment that will help cure your insomnia. Speak with a therapist about your insomnia and they will help you understand why insomnia occurs and what you can do to fight it. If you have already started abusing Vicodin because of your insomnia, you should seek professional addiction treatment. Traditional forms of Vicodin addiction treatment may not be the most effective for you if you are also suffering from insomnia, so look at alternative forms of treatment as well.
Vicodin Addiction Treatment
Vicodin addiction will not go away on its own, even if you heal from insomnia through therapy. Vicodin addiction requires its own treatment, which may occur in traditional treatment centers such as a rehab clinic or in a program where your Vicodin addiction is treated at the same time as your insomnia. You can receive treatment for both in Dual Diagnosis treatment. During Dual Diagnosis, you will find out how your Vicodin addiction may be contributing to your insomnia and vice versa, and you will attack both problems at the same time, healing along the way.
