National Treatment Improvement Evaluation Study: Changes in Physical and Mental Health

For over 25 years Pat Moore Foundation has specialized in oxycodone and other opiate addiction treatment programs. We know first-hand the powerful addictive and destructive qualities of oxycodone and prescription drug abuse. Following is a short information guide on oxycodone abuse, addiction, symptoms, risks, hydrocodone, suboxone detox and treatment. We provide this as a service to Pat Moore Foundation family and friends, as well as for anyone seeking helpful and insightful information on oxycodone, including its addiction and abuse.

Changes in Physical and Mental Health

Substance abuse is known to be a major contributor to poor physical and mental health, and abusers use a disproportionately high percentage of physical and mental health services. Improvements in the mental and physical health of clients after treatment benefit the treated individuals, their significant others, and society.

  • Alcohol/drug-related medical visits dramatically declined following treatment, decreasing 53 percent;
  • While a very small base (2 percent of respondents) reported TB problems, that number was cut in half (55 percent) following treatment;
  • Those bothered by mental health problems declined by 35 percent; and
  • Those who reported inpatient mental health visits decreased by 28 percent.
