Over The counter Medicine Rehabs & Detox in Rhode Island

Most over the counter drugs such as cough medicine or cold medicine will contain mind-altering properties when the drugs are abused. The chemicals within these drugs will cause hallucinations, and many young people and adults within the state of Rhode Island will use them for a cheap high. Drug rehab programs that operate throughout the state continually help people who are mixing drugs such as cough and cold medicines with alcohol or illegal street drugs. Anytime when these drugs are taken as directed, they will be safe to use, but when not taken as directed or abused it will cause adverse health problems. After marijuana, over the counter drugs and alcohol are the most commonly abused drugs used by teenage Americans. Some of the most commonly abused over the counter drugs are cough and cold medicines, most of which contain dextromethorphan. Over the counter drugs can be just as dangerous as prescription drugs and illegal street drugs.
