Cough Medicine Rehab Centers and Detox Programs in Texas

Texas Cough and Cold Medicine Addiction Treatment

Throughout the state of Texas are numerous demographics of people all living within large metropolitans and small towns across the state. Each part within the state and each county and city all deal with drug and alcohol addiction and abuse problems in different ways. One of the over looked addictions that take place is the abuse of cough and cold medicine or over the counter drugs; when large quantities of these drugs are abused the person using them will experience severe effects. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration website are a directory that lists what services operate throughout the state, however; it does not necessarily provide a specific category for what program will treat a cough and cold medicine addiction.

How can parents understand the abuse of cough medicine?

The drug dextromethorphan, which is found in most cough medicine, was originally introduced in the United States in the 1950s and is used today as a cough suppressant. There are over 100 different cough medicines available in the market today, and the majority of them are sold over the counter, where as other are given as a prescription. Many cold medicines are sold over the counter, and there are many that are only given as a prescription, and most of these prescribed drugs contain codeine. Parents should take the time to become familiar with these drugs, and the danger of becoming addicted to them, and how easy it can be to abuse these drugs with other illicit drugs.
