Codeine is a prescription analgesic approved for use in relieving mild to moderate pain. Physicians mostly prescribe it for pain relief, including back pain, IBS, and cough. According to the World Health Organization, it is likely the most commonly used opiate overall. Codeine binds to receptors in the central nervous system that typically bind with the body’s own physiological opioids such as endorphins and enkephalins. When individuals abuse it in high doses, it can provide feelings of euphoria. Prolonged codeine use can result in tolerance, which means that some individuals might increase the daily ingested dosage to attempt to achieve the same results. These actions usually lead to abuse and dependency.
Codeine is in many drugs, including:
•Tylenol with codeine
•Prescription and over-the-counter codeine cough syrups
The abuse of codeine and other prescription medications has become a serious problem worldwide, with addiction and physical dependence developing so easily. Over such a short span of time, many people become affected. With millions of Americans abusing painkillers, it’s not surprising that so many drug programs have surfaced, offering various codeine treatment and detox programs. Codeine treatment centers or inpatient rehabs that treat codeine abuse usually begin treating new patients with a medically supervised detoxification to ensure physical stability. Next, they design the aftercare plan based on each individual’s specific needs.
