Treating Codeine Addiction:
Prescription cough syrup and pain pills often contain codeine, a narcotic with a long reputation for being a substance frequently abused. It’s legitimate use as an effective medication has made it a common occupant of medicine-chests, which is ultimately why addiction to this drug most often begins in the home. Though readily available as a seemingly innocuous pain reliever, unchecked addiction to codeine carries risks ranging from liver and kidney damage to dangerously slow heart rate (bradycardia), coma and death. At Arizona Rehab Center, however, our staff of compassionate therapy professionals use evidence-based therapies to help you or your loved one stop codeine addiction cold in its tracks.
