Codeine Addiction in Ontario

Codeine is an opiate that is used as an analgesic and is used to counteract against coughing and diarrhea. Although codeine is used a lot with a prescription, there are some people who use and abuse codeine recreationally. Codeine is not as bad as other opiates, but it still creates a physical dependence over time and so should not be treated lightly. Somebody hooked will try to quit the drug but will get a lot of effects from the withdrawal. That is why a lot of people need to get into a codeine addiction treatment in Ontario.

In the province of Ontario, 35 percent of the students said they had taken prescription drugs that were not prescribed by a doctor. Although codeine is not abused as often as other prescription drugs (such as OxyContin), it is nonetheless, a very real problem that needs to get handled. One of the ways to handle the codeine addiction is to get the addicts into a codeine treatment facility.

There are a lot of very young people in Ontario who are prescribed codeine after they’ve had such an operation as a tonsillectomy. There was research done in London, Ontario, which showed that codeine given to babies can be very dangerous. It showed that codeine given to a baby could be fatal by bringing slow breathing to the point of death.
