Is codeine addiction something to worry about? How common is it?
To answer your question, let’s just refer to this fact: In 2014-2015, 2 million Americans admitted that they abused codeine. Can you imagine what the statistics must be by now?
It was only because their bodies developed codeine tolerance that they moved on to abuse other opioid narcotics.
But, the question is, what is codeine actually? Why was it so easily available that 2 million people in the US abused it?
You see, codeine is an opioid drug; a painkiller. However, it has also shown some properties of suppressing cough.
It is for this reason that codeine was added to cough syrups and became extremely easy to reach and abuse for adolescents who were beginning to experience the euphoric high that opioids could trigger.
There must be a million questions just running around and colliding in your head.
Does codeine have opiates in it? Can you get high on codeine? What does codeine do to the body? How addictive is codeine actually?
Let’s find the answer to all of them and more!
