Codeine Rehab

codeine-rehabAn estimated 1.9 million Americans suffer from opioid abuse and dependency on drugs such as codeine. Up to 75 percent that become addicted to opioid medication start taking heroin as a cheaper way to get high. This worrying trend of people abusing prescription such as codeine shows the clear need for codeine rehab treatment centers.

What is Codeine and how can Codeine Rehab Centers Help with Addiction?

Codeine is a Scheduled II drug, which means that while it has medicinal benefits, there is a high risk of abuse and addiction which is best dealt with at a codeine rehab center. It is part of the opioid family of drugs, which act on the reward centers of the brain. Codeine is given to patients who are experiencing severe pain such as that from surgery recovery. It blocks pain while giving a sense of euphoria to the users. This euphoria is what people are after when they abuse the drug.

Due to the addictive nature of opioids, rehab is almost always needed for a severe addiction to codeine. In rehab, a patient will safely be monitored through the detox process, often with medications used to counteract the withdrawal effects.

After detox, the patient will be admitted to therapy, where they will discover the reason behind their addiction and how to avoid it. Methods such as cognitive behavioral therapy, Motivational Incentives and motivational interviewing will be used.

Inpatient and Outpatient Programs: What’s the Difference?

An inpatient rehab program involves someone staying at the facility while receiving treatment, whereas an outpatient program involves a person only coming into the facility when they receive treatment. The biggest difference lies in the success rate for people suffering from a severe addiction; inpatient programs have a greater success rate than outpatient programs.

In an inpatient treatment program, the patient’s outside contact is controlled and the option of obtaining drugs is removed. These facilities are under strict supervision and offer a structured approach to treatment, which helps restore normality in a recovering person’s life. Methods of treatment such as Motivational Incentives are also more effective in this environment, where rewards can be controlled.

Outpatient rehab programs allow for people to carry on with their normal lives while receiving some of the benefits of professional help for their codeine addiction. Although it is not advised to receive outpatient treatment for a severe addiction, it is still an option that can achieve results. For example, if a person were to detox alone at home, then the likelihood of relapse and other problems resulting from withdrawal may cause the detox to fail. In a facility, however, the progress of the detox can be more closely monitored and guided.

How Does Codeine Abuse Treatment Differ from Other Drug Treatments?

Stopping the use of opioids can cause severe withdrawal symptoms as the body tries to readjust its function back to normal. The resulting symptoms can include painful abdominal cramps, severe depression and other complications that may arise from prior medical conditions. Therefore, receiving professional help during the opioid withdrawal is important.

The clinicians in rehab programs will often use medications to ease the transition the body is going through. Furthermore, these medications can be used to block the effects of opioids making the detox easier, as well as deterring future prescription drug abuse.

Long-Term Recovery 

An important part of recovery is being aware of relapse signs and having an effective relapse prevention strategy to deal with the emotional and mental stages of relapse. As an example, a person will be advised to seek support groups, go to a therapist or turn to their de-stressing techniques to avoid a relapse.
