Codeine is a potentially addictive painkiller which can be used safely and effectively for some people. Once a person builds a tolerance through regular use, more and more codeine is needed to achieve desired effects. Escalation of use can lead to physical and/or psychological dependence for which codeine rehab is most often needed. Rehab is a collective term to describe the treatments available to address addiction to drugs or alcohol. Codeine rehab can include physical detox, behavior modification and therapy to address the physical and psychological components of addiction. Rehab can take place in an out-patient center, an in-patient facility or through meetings in groups. Rehab may comprise short-term treatments or be long-term in nature. The severity and length of the drug problem may determine which treatment program is most suitable. Codeine is a narcotic pain medication also used for cough suppression. It can be habit-forming with regular use.
Waismann Method Offers Well-Rounded, Codeine Detox for Individual Patients
Many other rehabs have a “one-size-fits-all” approach, requiring patients to follow “steps” and repeat them until success is achieved. This concept ensures that you consider yourself an addict for life, keeping you involved in the program and tied to addiction. The Waismann Method offers a humane approach to codeine dependence that treats the individual quickly. Our in-hospital procedure answers the depletion of natural endorphins in nerve cells due to an external supply of opiates. It uses intravenous medications to cleanse the codeine from patients’ receptors while they sleep lightly under deep sedation. This takes less than two hours and they awake without the awareness they experienced an accelerated withdrawal. Our holistic approach to detox focuses on the mind-body connection, nutrition, exercise, recreation, communication, relaxation and balance for the return to school, work and social life. We don’t use opiate replacement drugs such as Suboxone or methadone to manage withdrawal.
