Welcome to Stop Roxy Addiction!
The addiction of prescription pills have become a deadly epedemic worldwide. Roxycotin is a well known narcotic pain killer. It is often referred to on the streets as roxy, roxies, blues, dum dums, blueberries, and smurfs. The active ingredient oxycodone in roxycontin is what makes this pain killer a highly addictive drug.
Oxycodone is an opium derivitive which causes addiction in the body and the brain. After excessive use of this drug, your body stops producing the proper chemicals in your brain (dopamine & seratonin) because it relies on the drug for the chemical. With proper detoxification, it can take a recovering addict up to 3 years for the brain to start producing the proper levels of dopamine and seratonin for the body to feel normal again.
