Learn More About DXM Abuse Treatment

DXM, or dextromethorphan, is a common ingredient in many over-the-counter cough medicines. When used as directed, medications that contain DXM can be both safe and beneficial. However, if you exceed the recommended dosage levels, DXM can induce a sense of sedate euphoria, dissociation, and other mind-altering effects.

Although DXM is available over the counter, this does not mean that this substance is safe to abuse. DXM abuse can expose you to considerable harm, including both immediate and long-term damage. Depending upon the nature and severity of your DXM abuse, you may need professional treatment in order to end your involvement with this substance.

The good news is that DXM dependence is a treatable condition. At Duffy’s Napa Valley Rehab, our specialized services can free you from DXM abuse, and help you resume your pursuit of a healthier and more satisfying life.

How to Help a Loved One

Helping a loved one get treatment for DXM abuse

If someone in your life has been abusing DXM, you can play an essential role in helping them get the professional care that they need. Please consider the following:

Educate yourself about substance abuse in general, and the impact of DXM in particular. The more informed you are about the challenges that your loved one is facing, the better prepared you will be to provide meaningful support.

  • Research treatment options that have helped others in similar situations. Identify programs in your area that offer the type and level of care that your loved one needs.
  • Talk to your loved one. More importantly, listen. Express your concern, reiterate your love and support, and resist any urge to argue or judge. Your loved one’s willingness (or hesitance) to discuss their problems will provide you with valuable insights into their mindset, and will guide your future actions.
  • If your loved one acknowledges the problem and is willing to get help for DXM, enlist them in the process of identifying and evaluating potential sources of treatment. If they are resistant to the idea of treatment, then talk with experts about how best to proceed.
  • Get help. Recruit a small group of trusted friends or family members to assist you in your research, and to work with you to support your loved one. If necessary, schedule a session with a therapist or counselor. Do not neglect your own physical, mental, or spiritual needs.
  • Volunteer to accompany your loved one to appointments or program visits. Provide transportation, arrange for childcare, and take care of other obstacles that may prevent your loved one from getting into treatment.

Finally, remember that recovery from substance abuse and addiction to drugs like DXM is a long process. Set realistic expectations. Participate in any family support services that your loved one’s treatment program offers. Prepare to support your loved one before, during, and after their time in treatment.

My drug addiction was controlling my life, and I was in a free fall heading towards rock bottom. The only path I could see was to keep using and hope for the best. That’s when I learned of another path, getting help and starting treatment. I’m now 3 years sober and have never been happier. The light is at the end of the tunnel, reach for it.
