Cough Medicine Rehab Centers and Detox Programs in Utah

Cough Medicine Addiction and Treatment in Utah

The many different drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs that operate throughout the state of Utah include detox centers, inpatient programs, and outpatient treatment facilities. In order to find the right type of treatment, most families should go through an addiction assessment, which will help them determine what rehabilitation will work best. Most drug treatment programs will provide full and complete treatment for a cough and cold medicine addiction, and the majority of the programs available within the state are listed on the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration website directory. What is not necessarily provided within this online directory is what programs will provide specific drug treatment for a cough or cold medicine addiction.

How does cough medicine affect the brain?

DXM or dextromethorphan affects a specific part of the brain that controls coughing, as this drug is a cough suppressant. However, when a person uses large quantities of this drug, the user can experience hallucinogenic and psychedelic effects similar to what PCP or ketamine causes a user to experience. It is very common for users of these drugs to mix them with other drugs to intensify the high they are looking for, and these drugs include alcohol and marijuana, and prescription drugs. Like any other type of drug when abused it will have many serious and negative consequences on the brain.
