Codeine Addiction

The effects of a Codeine Addiction

With more and more prescription drugs available, drug addiction is continuing to rise. One prescribed drug which is becoming favoured by users is codeine. Commonly starting off using a codeine-based cough syrup, this opioid drug can easily become addictive as pain tolerances develop, causing physical dependencies.

This form of prescribed drug is usually provided to individuals requiring mild to moderate pain relief, resembling similar effects but less hazardous than morphine and heroin. However, with great availability and low danger risks, innocent use has the ability to progress to an aggressive codeine addiction.

To many, codeine is a harmless drug providing treatment for mild physical and mental pain. However, long-term, high consistent consumption can lead to greater health complications. These include respiratory failure, strokes and even the potential of death. Once mixed with central nervous system depressants such as alcohol, codeine can be highly dangerous. There are many side effects of codeine addiction which can negatively affect a user’s quality and length of life. If you do experience any side effects, seeking medical advice is highly recommended.

If you’re living with a codeine addiction, call out for support today. Overcoming an addiction is difficult alone. Here at Step 1 Recovery, we can help you overcome your dependency both mentally and physically.
