Codeine is an opioid narcotic commonly found in prescription cough syrups and in pain medications such as Vicodin. Codeine, like morphine, is an alkaloid that comes from opium. Although codeine is less powerful than morphine, it is more widely used and prescribed in medicine and this makes it easier for people to obtain and abuse.

addiction help

Codeine addiction treatment can help you overcome your addiction and get your life back.

Codeine acts as a sedative which relaxes the user and in higher quantities, it may cause a type of euphoric feeling, much like other opioid drugs. As an opioid drug, codeine is highly addictive. According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, only three opium alkaloids “are under international control, which are morphine, codeine, and thebaine; all three are used in the drug industry.” The more a person abuses codeine or codeine based drugs, the more likely they will become dependent or addicted to the drug.

Safe Detox

Getting free from addiction to codeine requires abstinence from the drug. Codeine Rehab provides a safe detox and professionals can assist with this process by providing support and if necessary, medicines to alleviate withdrawals and cravings. After detox, the person learns how to cope without using drugs. Over time, they gain confidence in themselves and develop life skills that will continue to help them in the future.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

CBT is a highly successful therapy where the person learns to recognize “triggers” to their addiction and avoid them or change the behaviors of how they react to them. Through insight and practice of these new habits, the person is empowered to live independently from drugs once they return home.

Specialized Care

Codeine Rehab provides the codeine addict with a specialized treatment that can target their addiction issues and design a custom treatment plan to eliminate or reduce these obstacles. This helps them to recover faster and by removing the obstacles, they can begin to rebuild their life on a clean slate.

Knowledge & Resources

The knowledge and resources one finds through Codeine Rehab can be invaluable. The person learns to live a healthier life, rebuild relationships, and gain a greater sense of self-worth which they can continue to apply in their life.


Codeine Rehab programs help people to build support systems which are critical to recovery and remain a lifeline once they leave. Peer support is a key factor in 12-Step programs. The person gains hope and encouragement from groups like these and they are better able to renew bonds with family and friends, while making new ones, along the way.
