Learn more about codeine addiction treatment at Bayside Marin Treatment Center in California
As a narcotic opioid pain medication, codeine is a type of drug that can quickly trap individuals into the cycle of addiction. While this medication has legitimate purposes when it is prescribed by a physician in order to treat chronic coughing or mild to moderately severe pain, the abuse of this substance can also induce feelings of relaxation and euphoria, ultimately leading to pleasurable sensations that users begin to crave. These cravings can lead to addiction and physical dependence, both of which can be extremely difficult to overcome without professional treatment. Fortunately, such treatment is available. At Bayside Marin Treatment Center in California, we recognize how difficult it can be to face each day plagued by the desire and compulsion to use codeine and have therefore created specialized, effective programming that is designed to meet the needs of individuals who are suffering from this form of chemical dependency concern. With treatment that is offered in a private, intimate setting overlooking Mount Tamalpais and the beautiful San Francisco Bay, clients who come to Bayside Marin’s rehab center can be assured that they will receive an unparalleled level of care.
Helping a loved one get treatment for codeine addiction
Coming to terms with the fact that a family member or loved one is abusing a substance like codeine can wreak emotional havoc on an individual. If you have noticed signs that your friend, parent, child, or sibling has developed a dependency on codeine, you are likely experiencing a great deal of unpleasant emotions. You may be feeling frustrated with your loved one at his or her inability to cease use of this substance. You may be feeling concerned about the damage that your loved one’s use of this drug has already inflicted on his or her health. You may be feeling worried about what the future holds for your loved one if he or she does not receive the help needed to put an end to this tragic cycle of addiction. You may also be feeling confused as to what role you should play in helping your loved one accept the fact that he or she needs professional help. Consider the following tips:
- Learn about the disease of addiction, as doing so can help elicit a sense of empathy towards what your loved one is experiencing while also helping you gain an understanding about the level of care that your loved one needs in order to heal.
- Investigate various treatment options that are available for individuals who are battling a chemical dependency problem of this kind. Once you have found some that seem promising in regards to meeting your loved one’s needs, present those findings to your loved one.
- Demonstrate your willingness to be an active part of your loved one’s recovery process by offering to go with him or her to any appointments that may be scheduled.
- Continue to be an active part of your loved one’s recovery by engaging in opportunities to play a role in the therapeutic process when they arise. For example, if family therapy sessions are offered or if there is the opportunity for you to take part in support groups, show your loved one your support by taking part in these opportunities.
- Be patient and do not give up on your loved one. Remember that the road to recovery can be a long one, often filled with setbacks along the way. Do not give up hope. Remain confidently and consistently encouraging and supportive.
Why consider treatment for codeine addiction at Bayside Marin Treatment Center in California
When a codeine addiction is left unaddressed, the effects that can arise can be devastating to an individual’s life. Physically, there are a number of adverse consequences that can result from the prolonged use of this substance. Bleeding of the stomach, respiratory and circulatory disturbances, liver damage, and kidney damage have all been known to occur when a codeine abuse problem is left untreated. Additionally, the abuse of this substance can leave users vulnerable to experiencing cognitive impairment, memory disturbances, hallucinations, seizures, pervasive feelings of dizziness and, in some instances, the onset of psychosis. Furthermore, nausea, constipation, weakened pulse, declined heart rate, excessive perspiration, and itchy skin are also known to plague individuals who have developed an addiction to codeine. Other aspects of an individual’s life can be negatively impacted as well when the abuse of codeine persists. When an addiction forms, it rapidly begins to consume all aspects of person’s life, taking priority over things that were once viewed as important, such as work, family, and one’s social life. Once the abuse begins to supersede all else, work performance can decline, resulting in job loss and financial strife, and social withdrawal and isolation can become prominent, leading to familial discord, possible divorce, and the demise of other important relationships. By engaging in rehab, however, these devastating consequences can be successfully avoided.
