Codeine is the most widely used narcotic used by the medical community today. It is used to provide relief from moderate pain and as a cough suppressant. The drug is also known as Cody, T, T-three, and Fours. It is most often taken orally as a pill for pain relief and is used in liquid form for cough suppressants. Codeine is addictive due to its narcotic symptoms, which include a euphoric state; many patients self-medicate and abuse the drug, leading to addiction.
There is a large underground market for codeine, leading to prescription fraud on the part of patients and doctors who provide the drug for sale. In addition, it is relatively easy for addicted patients to “shop” doctors to obtain multiple prescriptions to supply their increasing need for codeine in order to produce the same levels of euphoria or pain relief.
Codeine is found in opium and is manufactured from morphine. While codeine produces less respiratory depression and analgesia than morphine, use of the drug can result in respiratory distress, seizures, confusion and loss of consciousness. Continued use causes the brain to slow and can stop the production of endorphins, which can result in severe pain.
At Into Action, we recognize the difficulty in convincing the addict that help is needed to treat their codeine abuse. Our compassionate, experienced staff works with each addicted person to develop a custom treatment and support program to provide them with the best opportunity for long-term success and recovery.
