Cough Medicine Rehab Centers and Detox Programs in Arizona

Cough Medicine Addiction and Rehabilitation in Arizona

Within the state of Arizona are numerous different types of drug and alcohol treatment rehabilitation, which includes various detox methods, inpatient programs, and outpatient centers. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration websites provide an extensive directory of services, categorized in distinct areas, some more specific than others.

Unfortunately, there is no specific category for rehab centers who treat cough medicine abuse or addiction, but most drug and alcohol treatment programs, whether inpatient or outpatient will treat a person struggling with a cough medicine addiction or an abuse problem. Cough and cold medicine addiction and abuse problems affect many people, as most of these drugs can be purchased over the counter.

Does abusing cough and cold medicine have adverse effects on the brain?

When any of these particular drugs are taken as directed, whether they are prescribed or over the counter; the treating of the symptom the person requires them for is relatively safe. However, when the drugs are not taken as directed and are used in higher dosages then recommended or prescribed, they can have adverse side effects on the brain and the rest of the body. Each of the different chemicals in cough and cold medicine will act on the different cells and receptors within the brain, and like any other drug that is abused, it will adversely affect these cells and receptors. A user will begin to experience these effects after prolonged abuse of these drugs. Through proper treatment and therapy, abusers of these drugs can receive the help they need, and can turn his or her life around for the better.

Hydrocodone-based cough syrup can also be addictive, such as Hycodan,  Hycomine and Tussionex.
