Cough Medicine Rehab Centers and Detox Programs in Indiana

Cough and Cold Medicine Addiction and Treatment in Indiana

Addiction to cough medicine is a problem that impacts many families and the individuals who abuse these over the counter and prescription drugs. Cough and cold medicines contain drugs that can become habit forming and addictive when they are used in excess. Cough medicine addiction can be treated at typically any type of drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs, whether it is an outpatient or an inpatient program, and this will include the proper detox. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration website do provide extensive lists of programs operating throughout the state of Indiana, but the directory does not go into great detail of which programs provide rehabilitation for cough medicine addiction and abuse.

How is the detoxification process from cough and cold medicine?

It has been reported that there is no immediate risk to abruptly stopping the excessive use of cough and cold medicine, but anyone abusing these drugs should consult with a doctor prior to any detox. Some of the immediate effects from detoxing off of cough and cold medicine will include nausea, insomnia, high fevers, headache, hallucinations, seizures, and agitation. Typically, a detox program will be fully capable of dealing with the withdrawal effects from these types of drugs, and this could be done through a medical or a traditional detox program.

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