All types and brands of over the counter medications have different types of medical uses. Commonly these drugs can be purchased for treating mild pain, motion sickness, cold medicine, and cough medicine. The drugs found within these medications are Dextromethorphan, Pseudoephedrine, Dimenhydrinate, and Acetaminophen. It is very common through much of the United States and within the state of Alaska for people to abuse over the counter drugs or self medicate because of some condition. When these types of drugs are abused, they will provide a euphoric high and or can act as a hallucinogen. The drug rehabilitation centers and counseling services that are available within the state of Alaska include detox centers who can help people addicted to over the counter medications. The inpatient and outpatient treatment programs within the state offer suitable counseling programs for anyone struggling with an addiction.
