About Codeine Abuse Recovery

Learn more about Codeine abuse treatment at Starlite Recovery Center in Texas

Codeine is a prescription opioid that is commonly used to treat mild to moderately severe pain. This medication, which is derived from morphine, is extremely addictive. Many individuals use codeine because of the pleasurable effects it produces, including relaxation and euphoria.

As a person continues to consume codeine, the likelihood that he or she will become physically dependent on it increases. This dependence can quickly turn into an addiction, which can be quite challenging to overcome without effective professional help.

Comprehensive treatment that begins with detoxification can serve as a starting point to recovering from codeine addiction. At Starlite Recovery Center, our detox program can help your body become rid of codeine and prepare you to fully engage in therapy and other forms of treatment that will empower you to achieve long-term recovery from codeine addiction.

What Happens During Withdrawal

What happens during Codeine withdrawal

Withdrawing from any substance can be painful, especially when it is an opioid like codeine. Once you have become addicted to codeine, stopping your use of the drug entirely or minimizing how much you are consuming can cause you to experience several withdrawal symptoms.

The symptoms of codeine withdrawal, which can range from uncomfortable to painful, may include the following:

  • Muscle spasms
  • Excessive irritability
  • Runny nose
  • Heightened feelings of anxiety
  • Decreased energy
  • Abdominal cramping
  • Muscle cramping and/or muscle pain
  • Watery eyes
  • Insomnia
  • Intense cravings for codeine
  • Excessive agitation

When a person tries to endure withdrawal on his or her own, these symptoms can become so unbearable that he or she may resume codeine use in order to experience relief.

When a person instead enters a professional detoxification program, the pain of codeine withdrawal can be minimized and the risk of immediate relapse can be decreased.

I would fake sickness to get prescriptions of codeine. It got the point where my doctor noticed that I was starting to develop a dependence for it. After admitting myself to Starlite Recovery Center, I am now free of the disease of addiction and look forward to my second year of sobriety!
