Understanding Codeine Withdrawal

Codeine is a prescription medicine that many of you may have in medications in your home right now.

According to MedlinePlus, “Codeine is used to relieve mild to moderate pain. It is also used, usually in combination with other medications, to reduce coughing.”

Codeine, however, is an opiate or narcotic, meaning it is habit-forming.

And the withdrawal from a Codeine dependence can be uncomfortable and potentially dangerous.

Read on to learn more about Codeine withdrawal and how we will help manage a safe withdrawal for you at Resurgence.

Effects of Codeine Withdrawal

You can build a tolerance to Codeine very easily. Codeine may be less habit-forming than other painkillers, but it still can be dangerous. Given the addictive nature of Codeine, it’s possible to develop a dependence on Codeine even following your prescription. However, a number of factors can affect if you develop dependence and how long it will take to develop it. But since eventually, your body will need Codeine to function properly if you are dependent, the withdrawal may be painful and difficult.

It is highly advised you do this Codeine withdrawal under medical supervision, which we provide during detox at Resurgence.

Specific Symptoms of Codeine Withdrawal

Depending on your tolerance, dependence, and if you have developed an addiction, you can feel Codeine withdrawal symptoms as soon as an hour after your last dose. These could last for a week or linger for months.

There are typically a set of early symptoms and a set of later symptoms once your bodily functions start readjusting. Many of the symptoms present the opposite effects of Codeine’s originally prescribed uses.

According to the withdrawals we have managed, some common side effects of Codeine withdrawal include:

  • Stomach issues such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, cramps, or loss of appetite
  • Body temperature issues such as chills or sweating
  • Muscle aches, shakiness, and trembling
  • Cold-like symptoms
  • Issues with blood pressure and heart rate
  • Confusion, disorientation, concentration issues, and memory issues
  • Anxiety, depression, mood swings, or irritability
  • Insomnia

Please note that your withdrawal symptoms may be more severe if you are also battling other addictions or mental illness. And with any withdrawal, it can be unpredictable, which is why you recommend you allow our team to monitor the process.

Codeine Withdrawal Symptoms and Mental Illness

According to research published by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, “In 2015, an estimated 43.4 million (17.9 percent) adults ages 18 and older experienced some form of mental illness (other than a developmental or substance use disorder).

Of these, 8.1 million had both a substance use disorder and another mental illness.” And not only can Codeine negatively impact your mental illness or trigger a new issue while using, but it can also impair it during withdrawal.

Codeine withdrawal may be accompanied by anxiety, mood swings, and depression. That’s why we will take an inventory of your mental state before detox to avoid more strain on your mental health hopefully. It will also help us properly carry out dual diagnosis during rehabilitation.

Resurgence Payment and Insurance

We firmly believe that every patient should receive the best care possible when it comes to completing your Codeine withdrawal. And this means not having to worry about the cost, especially when trying to detox from Codeine.

At Resurgence, we will build your treatment plan at an affordable cost while still providing the best care possible. For our services, we accept most PPO insurance as well as private forms of payment for treatment.

We will also communicate with your insurance provider on your behalf to ensure that you or your loved one is provided with a custom recovery program for your situation without the high cost.

Codeine Withdrawal at Resurgence Behavioral Health

At Resurgence Behavioral Health in California, we understand the difficulty in dealing with Codeine withdrawal symptoms. Luckily, our team of experts has experience in monitoring and assisting in withdrawals of all kinds.

And post-withdrawal, we also offer drug rehab to treat your substance abuse. We are here to ensure you will beat any addictions you come in with. That is why we offer a whole range of treatment: detox programs, rehabilitation programs, and an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) post-recovery.

We also have a variety of counseling options to treat any mental illness alongside your Codeine withdrawal, including our dual diagnosis program.

Inpatient and Outpatient Programs

We understand that everyone’s rehabilitation from alcohol dependence is different. Our outpatient Codeine treatment is an alternative option for those who cannot attend our residential program.

It is ideal for employed people who cannot leave their jobs or those who cannot leave their families. It is also a more affordable option. Each inpatient facility provides close supervision by highly trained staff, 24-hour medical care, individual and group therapy sessions, healthy meal options, and a relaxing environment.

You can participate in SMART Recovery groups in whichever program you choose.

Detox Programs

We offer two types of detox programs, social and medical. Both are supervised by medical professionals and put safety and comfort at the forefront. One allows you to go at your own pace, while the other involves medication and a more monitored schedule.

Don’t worry; together we will decide the most effective Codeine withdrawal for you. And whichever detox you choose, we will evaluate the level of your Codeine use, stabilize you, and prepare you for further rehabilitation.

This will not only ensure a safe Codeine withdrawal. Hopefully, it will also lessen some of the discomforts of Codeine withdrawal symptoms and prepare you for further treatment. Read on to learn more about our post-detox treatment options.

Our Approach to Rehabilitation

We take a customized, patient-centric approach to rehabilitation. We understand Codeine withdrawal and addiction need special attention. If you come to us trying to recover from a Codeine abuse, we will begin by completing an assessment to devise a plan for your full recovery.

Our treatment programs address all the underlying conditions for addiction to allow you to take ownership of your recovery. Our customized approach, coupled with our staff of highly motivated and well-trained professionals, ensure that you or your loved one will receive excellent care during and after treatment.

Some of the rehabilitation treatments we offer include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Stress Management
  • Group Therapy
  • Medication to alleviate withdrawal symptoms and reduce cravings

Intensive Outpatient Program

If you complete recovery with us in an inpatient or outpatient setting or try to avoid another uncomfortable withdrawal, please check out our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP).

Breaking a Codeine abuse habit can be especially difficult for anyone. In IOP, you will have the flexibility to maintain much of your normal daily routine while working on maintaining sobriety.

IOP is a good treatment option if you do not have the means to leave your job or if you have to stay home for any other reason. You will receive support from therapy groups and gain the ability to apply the skills you learned during treatment, all while maintaining your normal lifestyle.
