Drug and alcohol addiction impact many families living within the state of Maine, but the treatment resource provided within the state includes detox programs, outpatient centers, and inpatient facilities. Most of these locations can treat adults and teens battling some type of addiction or abuse problem with cough and cold medicines. Most cough and cold medicines can be purchased over the counter, but some are given as a prescription when required. When these drugs are used in excess, they can lead to many different health problems, and serious illness. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration website provide directories and contact information for all the available resources operating within the state. What is not necessarily provided within the site are which centers can specifically treat cough and cold medicine addiction or abuse.

Are cough and cold medicines considered physically addictive?

Many believe the dextromethorphan is not physically addictive, where as cold medicines that contain codeine can potentially become physically addictive. When large quantities of any drug are regularly abused they can become physically addictive, along with a mental addiction to the drug. The effects from the drug can last three to four hours, and of course can be extended with further prolonged use and abuse of the drug. Despite cough and cold medicine being sold over the counter and give by prescription, the chemicals found within these drugs can also be bought on the street.

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