Prescription drugs are among the most heavily abused substances in the United States and many other countries. A codeine addiction can lead to many of the same problems as an addiction to an illegal drug. Any drug addiction can cause relationship problems and negatively affect a person’s career. Since codeine is only available with a doctor’s prescription, many addicts buy the drug illegally, which can lead to fines and jail time. An effective codeine addiction treatment plan is often needed to help individuals quit taking the drug and attain long-term sobriety.

Supervised Medical Detoxification at The Control Center
The Control Center uses a Medical Detoxification Program to make sure codeine addicts quit the drug safely and successfully. Withdrawal symptoms can include muscle spasms, irritability, vomiting, diarrhea, and intense pain. In addition to Medical Detoxification that helps minimize these withdrawal symptoms, The Control Center provides outpatient Medical Management services to help individuals avoid relapse.
