Many people who abuse codeine were first prescribed the drug for a legitimate therapeutic purpose – be it chronic pain, pain management after surgery, or to treat a cough. Because of this, the line between use and abuse can be blurred. Even when codeine use becomes a problem, it can be easy to conceal as in most cases the drug is taken in pill form.
Despite this, codeine addiction is a serious concern. Users quickly develop a tolerance, causing them to up their dosage. This can lead to fatal consequences such as seizures and respiratory depression.
In recent years, abuse of codeine-based cough syrup has become a growing problem among young people. The drug is often mixed with fruit juice or soda, which increases the possibility of accidental overdose. If a family member is abusing codeine, either in pill or syrup form, contact Clarity Way at 1-877-628-1489 to discuss treatment options.
Located in the rolling hills of south central Pennsylvania, Clarity Way is a full featured codeine rehab center that helps users, first through the detox process and then with inpatient treatment to learn strategies to avoid relapse. Our facilities are limited to a maximum enrollment of 17 so as to maintain the privacy of our clients and allow our qualified, compassionate staff to give individual attention throughout the recovery process.
The first step of codeine rehab is a medically supervised detox. Because codeine is related to opiates such as morphine and heroin, withdrawal effects can be severe and require constant monitoring. Symptoms may include vomiting, chills, pain, and irritability. Our medical team will individually assess the needs of each client and develop a detox plan that mitigates the severity of these symptoms.
Codeine rehab is often complicated by the fact that many users have legitimate issues with chronic pain that require treatment. At Clarity Way, pain management is an important treatment goal that is worked towards holistically. In many cases, chronic pain conditions can be managed through exercise and alternative therapies such as massage and acupuncture. Our clients work closely with medical and therapy professionals to develop alternatives to medication for pain conditions.
At Clarity Way, we know the fight with addiction cannot be won overnight. That is why we offer comprehensive aftercare support for a minimum of one year after inpatient treatment. Our dedicated aftercare therapist monitors our clients’ progress through regular phone calls and can arrange follow-up sessions with our therapy team as necessary.
For many of our clients, the biggest source of support following release from our codeine rehab center is the family. We actively encourage family members and other loved ones to be a part of the recovery process, both through counseling sessions during inpatient treatment and afterwards.

“I was worried when I went to treatment - worried about what my room would be like, whether the food would be good and whether the pool would be clean. Once I got to treatment, I realized that “my worries” were ways of avoiding the things I actually needed to deal with. The treatment team helped me to understand and start addressing this and I began focusing on all the right things, the things I had ...”
