Over The counter Medicine Rehabs & Detox in Pennsylvania

When over the counter drugs are combined with other drugs such as alcohol or illegal street drugs, the effects will be intensified. Individuals who are looking for cheap and easy highs will seek out over the counter drugs along with other substances. Many of the commonly abused over the counter drugs such as cough medicine and cold medicine are found within Pennsylvania households. Parents should take the time to speak to their children about the dangers of over the counter drugs and how easily they can become dependent on them.

Drug & Alcohol Rehabilitation Services for Acetaminophen Addiction in Pennsylvania

There is a definite problem with the misuse of over-the-counter drugs with acetaminophen as an ingredient in Pennsylvania. A lot of OTC medications have acetaminophen in them, which means if someone does not read medicine labels properly and follow their instructions, it is a possibility that they can take more than the recommended dose of acetaminophen. Know Your Dose has on their website a guide on how to read medicine labels.


Pennsylvania drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers continually see clients who are mixing over the counter drugs with other substances. The treatment process must be done with detox and therapy to address both the physical and psychological parts of addiction.
