Codeine addiction is powerful, and it’s not always easy to get trustworthy help. Many people use tools like social media to get advice on quitting, and the information they get can be packed with blame.[1] Boca Recovery Center is different. Here, you can get help from a talented, trained team of addiction experts, all rooting for your full recovery.

Treating Codeine Addiction at Boca Recovery Center 

At Boca Recovery Center, we believe in personalized recovery programs. We’ll get to know you, your prior treatment challenges, and your goals. Then, we’ll create a protocol that can take you where you want to go. Your program might include the following elements: 

Medical Detox for Codeine Withdrawal Management 

After long periods of codeine use, brain cells are altered. Quitting cold turkey when you’re dependent on codeine can be both difficult and dangerous.[2] Medical detox programs provide a safe and effective way to help you adjust to sobriety. 

Your withdrawal program might include the following medications:[2]

  • Methadone: This powerful opioid relieves withdrawal symptoms. Your dose may be high at the start of the program and taper with time. 
  • Buprenorphine: This partial opioid also helps to ease withdrawal symptoms and cravings. A high dose can taper with time.
  • Clonidine: This medication can ease symptoms like anxiety and agitation, making codeine withdrawal a little easier. 
  • Symptom relievers: Your care team may use medications to treat symptoms like nausea, vomiting, or insomnia. 

The Boca Recovery Center team will be with you at every step, monitoring your progress. You’ll have all the support you need to get sober safely. 

Medication-Assisted Treatment 

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is an evidence-based treatment approach for codeine addiction.[3] Your Boca Recovery Center team will help you understand if this type of care is right for you. If so, they’ll help you get started. 

If you start MAT, your team will help you pick the right pharmaceutical solution. The following types are typically suggested:[3]

  • Methadone: At the end of your detox program, you may feel stable on a small dose of this prescription. In MAT, you’ll keep using the medication under a doctor’s supervision. 
  • Buprenorphine: MAT programs often use buprenorphine in combination with anti-abuse ingredients like naloxone. These additions can make the medication safe to use at home. 
  • Naltrexone: This medication doesn’t address cravings or physical discomfort, but it can keep you from getting high if you relapse. 

Research suggests that people are more successful in sobriety if they use medications for 12 months or longer.[4] You may no longer need inpatient care at Boca Recovery Center by this point. Your team can help you find an appropriate MAT provider near your home, so your healing can continue. 

Comprehensive Inpatient Rehab Treatment for Codeine Abuse 

It’s not easy to recover at home. Your dealer, friends, and coworkers could all offer you pills. Even social media sites are filled with images of people partying with codeine.[5] An inpatient rehab program lets you step away from temptation and focus exclusively on your recovery. 

Spend every day surrounded by trained addiction professionals. Participate in therapy sessions, support group meetings, and addiction classes. Eat nutritious and delicious foods. Rest and relax in a comfortable room. Take the time you need to understand your addiction and plan for a healthier future by enrolling in inpatient care at Boca Recovery Center. 


While medications are an important part of codeine addiction treatment, therapy matters too. By working with a mental health professional, you can heal trauma, build new skills, and truly understand your triggers. 

Several evidence-based therapy approaches exist, including the following:[6]

Your team will help you decide which method works best for you. Many times, several therapeutic approaches will be incorporated into your treatment plan. Approaches can change as your recovery deepens and your needs shift.

Getting Started at Boca Recovery Center

At Boca Recovery Center, we know it’s not easy to ask for help. Sometimes, admitting you have a codeine problem is the most difficult step in your recovery. Know that you’ll be surrounded by support from the moment you make contact with our team. 

The process starts with a free, confidential pre-screening call. Our team will ask about your codeine intake, use of any other substances, your prior treatment experiences, and your sobriety goals. We’d also like to know where you live, who else might be a part of your recovery, and who provides your insurance. 

With this information, we can build a detailed recovery program made just for you. We will connect with your insurance provider and handle preauthorization requirements. We can also arrange transportation to our treatment facility, so you’ll have one less thing to worry about. 

When you arrive, we’ll help you check in and unpack. Your path to healing will start that very first day. We hope you’ll contact us to get started today.
