What is Codeine?
Codeine is an opiate that is typically prescribed as a painkiller. Patients who are recovering from surgeries are sometimes prescribed codeine. Another popular use for codeine is its ability to suppress coughs, which is why some cough medicine is only available from pharmacy departments, even without a prescription.
Dangers of Codeine Addiction
Many opiates are notorious for being more addictive than a user expects, and codeine is no exemption. If codeine is used without following a prescription, then the risk of an addiction forming is significant. Although, some people have become addicted to codeine even when carefully following a prescription for a painkiller or cough suppressant.
Addiction to codeine brings many risks to both physical and mental health. As the addiction worsens or goes untreated, the risk of severe side effects increases.
Codeine addiction can cause the following symptoms and health risks:
- Constant nausea or frequent vomiting after eating
- Hot flashes, night sweats, and constant discomfort
- Cardiovascular failure and/or weakened pulse
- Anxiety and depression
- Chronic pain
Certain symptoms of codeine addiction seem paradoxical in that they become worse in between doses of codeine. This type of reaction is characteristic of withdrawal symptoms. For example, someone with an addiction to codeine that was prescribed as a painkiller may feel worsened pain in between doses, even though the underlying conditions that cause that pain have not worsened, too.
How to Treat Codeine Addiction
There is no cut-and-dry method to treat codeine addiction. Everyone who is struggling with an addiction to codeine is unique. As such, the approach to their treatments, therapies, and care programs must also be unique.
At North Georgia Recovery Center, we have deliberately built a rehab and addiction recovery center with a variety of treatment options. By diversifying the care available through our programs, we can better find something that works for you specifically, rather than relying on a blanket approach that might not be as effective. During the intake process, we can sit down with you and decide on what treatments would make the most sense based on the severity of the codeine addiction, any health side effects it is currently causing, your work schedule, and much more. The goal is to make sure you feel supported when you are here, almost as if you were right in your own home and surrounded by trusted family and friends.
Three of our most popular treatment programs are:
- Partial hospitalization program (PHP)
- Intensive outpatient program (IOP)
- Outpatient group with aftercare
Again, please do not feel like you will be forced or pressured to use one program or another. We want to emphasize how our positive, community atmosphere integrates personalized care to make sure every step of your recovery journey is comfortable.
