'Hillbilly Heroin' Doesn't Beat this Narconon Graduate

former oxycontin addict


TROIS-RIVIERES, Quebec (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- "I got into a car accident and they took me out with the Jaws of Life; in the hospital they gave me Tylenol 3, but it wasn't enough," stated Cliff Van Rossum in a new video interview with Narconon Trois-Rivieres. Like many others in his position who became addicted to OxyContin, it typically starts out with some form of injury requiring pain management. Unfortunately, many of these individuals become physically and psychologically dependent to OxyContin.

"It's becoming an all too common scenario throughout Canada right now; our Intake Counselors receive calls every day from OxyContin addicts looking for ways to get off the drug," commented Nick Hayes, a chemical dependency counselor with Narconon Trois-Rivieres. "The typical scenario is a person will require these drugs for pain management, but will ignore the Doctors warning about their addictive potential," said Hayes.

In this in-depth interview Cliff takes the viewer step-by-step, beginning at his car accident and going on to how he started to "doctor shop" to acquire his prescriptions for OxyContin. He describes in great detail the initial high and feeling he got from taking Percocet and how eventually he needed something stronger from his doctor, which was later OxyContin. "It was a feel-good feeling, like something I never experienced before," stated Cliff in the interview.

Because OxyContin is a time-release formula over twelve hours, most addicts will have to chew, crush up and snort, or inject the drug to get the immediate euphoric effect of the Oxycodone, which is the primary pain reliever in OxyContin.

Cliff is one of the many people today who has successfully beaten a potentially deadly OxyContin addiction and has gone on to live a drug-free life. Today Cliff is now working his full-time job, but has created a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center referral Web site ( that specifically helps addicts find the right treatment options.
