Cough Medicine Rehab Centers and Detox Programs in Wyoming

Cough Medicine Addiction and Rehab in Wyoming

The drug and alcohol problems that the people of Wyoming face include illicit drug addictions, alcohol abuse, and addiction to prescription drugs. One of the overlooked problems that families and individuals face is the addiction to over the counter drugs, such as cough and cold medicine. This also includes prescribed cough and cold medicine, which tend to have large amounts of dextromethorphan and codeine within them. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration website are an online directory that will list all the available resources within the state, but what is not necessarily listed on this particular website is what programs can specifically treat a cough or cold medicine addiction or abuse problem.

What are the combined effects with other substances?

There are numerous combined effects when cough medicine is mixed with other drugs such as alcohol or marijuana and illicit street drugs. According to many different studies, abusing over the counter drugs with other drugs will cause serious illness, overdose, or even death. It is not uncommon for teens and adolescents to experiment with cough medicine and other drugs, and this is to primarily intensify the high the user will experience. People abuse cough medicine with alcohol to intensify the effect of the alcohol, and this is the same for any other type of drug. The only problem with this is the dangers of potential overdose and the chance of becoming severely addicted to these drugs.
