Addicted Codeine and Don’t Know What to Do?
Codeine is a strong opiate drug that is synonymous with pain relief. An opioid drug that is sometimes called a narcotic. It can be an incredibly effective form of pain management for moderate pain but it has become a drug that is frequently abused by those who have no medical need for it. Codeine is made from Morphine which gives it its pain relieving qualities but the user will build up a tolerance for the drug, requiring more of the drug to achieve the same desired effects. The dependence that is built from taking the drug in excess creates a dangerous situation which can lead to an accidental overdose.
Most people who become addicted to Codeine, do so because it was first prescribed for pain but the effects of the drug become enjoyable and therefore increasingly difficult to stop. Even though there is a physical element to the dependency on Codeine, the psychological effect is just as great. At Meridian Treatment Solutions, the qualified staff are able to assist you, not only with the physical effects of an addiction, but with the emotional and spiritual aspects as well.
If you find that you spend most of your time consuming, acquiring, or thinking about consuming and acquiring Codeine then you have a problem with addiction. Depending on the amount of the drug consumed and the length of time that you have been consuming the drug, your treatment may be as simple as an outpatient recovery program or as complex as a 30 to 90 day inpatient recovery plan.
The Effects of Codeine
If your addiction is severe enough, an inpatient stay could be the best thing that you have ever done for yourself. When you remain in your old life, you will be tempted to use your substance of choice again. When you remove the temptation, recovery suddenly gets a lot easier. When you add in the valuable stress reducing techniques that are taught at Meridian Treatment Solutions, your chances for success at getting and remaining sober greatly increase.
