Cough Medicine Rehab Centers and Detox Programs in Oregon

Oregon Cough Medicine Rehab and Abuse Problems

The drug and alcohol treatment resources that are provided within the state of Oregon include detox programs, inpatient facilities, outpatient services, and many different types of behavioral health programs. For the most part, addicts who are struggling with cough medicine addictions can find the right type of help at almost any form of drug rehabilitation or detox program. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration website is an online directory, which will list what services operate within the state of Oregon. What is not necessarily listed within this directory, is which programs can specifically treat a cough or cold medicine addiction or abuse problem.

Why is dextromethorphan mixed with alcohol?

DXM or cough medicine is commonly abused with alcohol, because it will cause a person to become intoxicated quicker and for longer periods of time. It is also much cheaper for alcoholics to purchase cough medicine along with alcohol in order to make the feelings of the high last longer. This is a very dangerous combination, and has led to thousands of people each year being admitted into the emergency room because of a potential overdose. These two drugs should never be abused together, and this is why people must be informed about how easy it is to acquire over the counter drugs and abuse these drugs.
