Although codeine is effective for moderate pain relief and cough suppression, extended use can lead to an addiction that is difficult to break.

However, medication, therapy and other forms of support can help you regain control of your life. Beat your addiction today.

Detox from Codeine

Aside from the mental dependence that often develops, the biggest challenge facing codeine abusers is the withdrawal symptoms—most of which can be made less severe through closely supervised medical detox. Although codeine is far less potent than other opiates like heroin, it still produces uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms ranging from sleeplessness to depression.

Other symptoms of codeine withdrawal may include:

  • Muscle cramps
  • Cold flashes
  • Diarrhea
  • Sleeplessness
  • Nervousness and anxiety
  • Tremors

Quitting cold turkey can cause serious side effects, such as extreme dehydration or vomiting and breathing the stomach contents into the lungs. It is always recommended to enlist a doctor for a medically supervised detox. In severe cases, a treatment facility may use other prescription drugs to help an addict safely detox from codeine.

The most common drug used for codeine addiction recovery is Suboxone, which contains buprenorphine and naloxone.

In order to avoid developing a new addiction, it is recommended not to use any other drugs beyond what is absolutely necessary for recovery.

Suboxone is used specifically for the recovery of opiate dependency. The buprenorphine in Suboxone relieves the withdrawal symptoms of quitting. Naloxone prevents or reverses the intoxicating effects of the opiates if the patient has a relapse. Naloxone is also used in treating opiate overdoses. Additionally, buprenorphine by itself may also be used in the early stages of recovery.

    Inpatient Rehabilitation for Codeine

    Codeine treatment usually begins with a detoxification period at an inpatient treatment center. Inpatient facilities also provide group counseling and specialized support to help recovering addicts learn how to live healthy, happy lives without codeine. Even those suffering from co-occurring mental conditions receive care to ensure their treatment is well-rounded.

    Inpatient rehab allows people addicted to codeine to receive uninterrupted care without the stress and temptations of the outside world.

    Inpatient rehabilitation programs typically last 30 to 90 days depending on the severity of the addiction; those with less serious addictions require a shorter period of time in rehab.

    Ongoing Recovery

    Ongoing treatment after inpatient rehab is crucial for a continuous recovery. Reintegration into society often means confronting past temptations, and the risk of relapsing is high without a support foundation. This foundation typically consists of support groups and counseling to help former addicts stay on the right path. Support groups and counselors can help people in recovery overcome anything that may trigger cravings and cope with underlying issues as well.
