Cough Medicine Rehab Centers and Detox Programs in Delaware

Delaware Cough Medicine Rehabilitation and Addiction

The drug problems that affect the people living throughout the state of Delaware include many different legal and illegal substances, and this does include over the counter drugs such as cough and cold medicines. An addiction to these cough and cold medicines can end up being quite severe, as there are many other ingredients combined with the Dextromethorphan and Codeine that will cause serious illness or death when excessively abused. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration directory do list what treatment services operate throughout the state of Delaware, but it does not provide a specific directory for which programs can treat cough or cold medicine addiction.

What are some of the withdrawal symptoms?

The withdrawal symptoms, like with other types of drugs, will be a different experience for each user, but there are some common symptoms a person will go through when withdrawing from large quantities of cough and cold medicines. Some of these withdrawal symptoms include insomnia, nightmares, memory problems, vomiting and diarrhea, and fatigue. Withdrawals can be managed effectively through detox, whether it is a traditional detox program or a medical detox center, but this will be the first step before an addict enters a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program.

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