How to recognize cough medicine abuse

Teenagers generally abuse cough medicine. Taking higher than recommended dose results in abuse, which leads to physical and psychological dependence on the medicine. Cough medicine abuse results in:

  • Mood changes without any reason
  • Changes in appetite
  • Poor coordination
  • Inability to focus
  • Secretive behavior

Drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs that are available throughout the state of Kansas include some various options, and many of the programs are either inpatient or outpatient treatment. Most of the drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs contact information can be accessed on the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration website directory, and some of these listings can be somewhat specific. Individuals who are struggling with cough and cold medicine addiction, and abuse usually use these drugs in combination with other drugs such as alcohol and marijuana. In order to find the right type of treatment, an addict should attend some type of addiction assessment. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration directory do not necessarily list what programs offer treatment for cough and cold medicine abuse.
