Cough Medicine Rehab Centers and Detox Programs in Maryland

Maryland Cough and Cold Medicine Addiction and Treatment

The drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs available throughout the state of Maryland include many various options such as detox, outpatient treatment, and inpatient rehabilitation. The proper form of treatment can be determined through an addiction assessment, which helps a patient find the proper program and treatment method for his or her particular situation. This can include finding the right program for a cough or cold medicine addiction, and many of the rehabilitation programs available within the state are listed on the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration website. The online directory does offer contact information about the programs, but there is not a specific list of which centers can help people addicted to cough and cold medicines.

What can cause a person to abuse cough and cold medicine?

Despite that most cough medicines do not necessarily create physical addictions; a person can still become psychologically addicted to these drugs such as Dextromethorphan and Codeine, which is found in prescription cold medicines. A person can become addicted to these drugs for many various reasons, but one of the more common reasons why is because most people who abuse these drugs use them with other drugs such as marijuana and alcohol. The intensity of the high can be one reasons why a person keeps coming back to these drugs and mixes them with other drugs. Because of the hallucinogenic effects from these drugs, many users will abuse large quantities of these drugs to experience these effects.

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