Cough Medicine Treatment and Abuse Problems in Louisiana

Cough and cold medicine addiction can become a major problem among the people who end up abusing these drugs, especially if they end up mixing these drugs with alcohol or any type of illegal substance. The treatment for cough and cold medicine abuse can be done at any type of drug and alcohol treatment center, whether it is an outpatient center, inpatient program, or a detox facility. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration website are an extensive directory of programs that are available within the state of Louisiana. The specific categories offered within the directory do not include what programs can treat a cough or cold medicine addiction or abuse problem.

What is Dextromethorphan (DXM)?

Typically found in most over the counter cough medicines, DXM is an anesthetic with hallucinogenic or dissociative properties, and when used in large quantities it can alter the individual's state of mind, potentially leading to some serious problems. Prescription cold medicines typically have codeine in them, which is an opioid and when this drug is taken it can also be very dangerous when used in large quantities. Both of these types of drugs when used with other drugs will intensify the high, and can lead to serious injury or even death in rare cases. Parents with teens should take certain precautions and speak with their children about these types of drugs and the dangers of them.
