One of the problems within the field of addiction is some "referral agencies" are, in fact, owned by treatment centers to fill their beds, which is by itself misleading visitors. This is widely covered on the Internet https://theintercept.com/2017/10/17/google-search-drug-use-opioid-epidemic/.

 DRS and RNT CONSULTING LLC are an independent website and call center not owned by any treatment. We are also trying to refer you to treatment that believes in good treatment practice, not rehabs that substitute an addiction with another dependency using medication. We believe that a drug-free life can be achieved. Medication can be used but only for detox purpose.

Our goal is to give you the possibility of attain a drug-free life.

Over The Counter Drug Rehabs & Detox by States

Over The Counter Drug Detox In The United States

Cough and cold medication can be procured without a prescription to a pharmacy. These medications when they contain DXM or CODEINE are very addictive.

Please note: medications containing DXM when taken with “non-drowsy” allergy medication can cause respiratory failure and other life-threatening effects.

DXM is particularly addictive, and the withdrawals can be life threatening due to the effect it has upon the motor controls of the brain. Therefore, coma, respiratory failure, and schizophrenic-like symptoms can arise from both from over use and from withdrawing from it. Brain damage has been recorded from abusing this drug.

Did you know this about over the counter medications?

In the US, the FDA monitors and regulates the sale of OTC medications. Many drug stores in the US have now removed product containing pseudoephedrine, and a person must go directly to a pharmacist to receive any products with this chemical.

How could over the counter medications possibly be addictive?

Many over the counter drugs contain very small amounts of narcotics or addictive drugs within them. If an addict really wants to, they can consume enough to get a buzz or high off of it. They can be addictive in a sense where it can be an easy high when using large quantities and knowing the availability is always there.

Codeine is an opioid: however, unlike morphine it has a very high active absorption level when taken orally. Almost 90% of the drug taken retains its active characteristic after passing through the liver. Therefore, it is dangerously subject to overdose. Withdrawal symptoms from codeine can include insomnia, cramping, fever//chills, bleeding stomach, dehydration, body pain, headache.

Speak to a counselor at addicted.org for a recommended drug detox program for over the counter addiction. The fact that it is procured without a prescription does not make it any less dangerous to detox from without assistance, and careful monitoring.
