Codeine Hotline

352.771.2700  24/7, Toll-Free, Confidential

Codeine is a powerful prescription opioid used to treat moderate-to-severe pain. Although it’s only available with a doctor’s script, codeine can be misused if more than the prescribed amount is taken. Many start taking codeine as a painkiller because of an injury, surgery or chronic pain, and find themselves addicted after regular or prolonged use.

If you or someone you know is struggling with codeine, there are many resources available, including The Recovery Village’s codeine hotline. Call to learn more about treatment options, and how you can take the first steps toward healing.

What Is a Codeine Hotline?

Addiction to narcotics like codeine can leave you feeling isolated and vulnerable, but it’s important to remember that you’re never alone. The Recovery Village’s codeine helpline, free and available at all hours, puts you in touch with a caring intake coordinator who is there to answer your questions about codeine use, help you find treatment options or simply listen to what you have to say.

When Should I Call a Codeine Hotline?

The Recovery Village offers a 24-hour hotline so that you can call any time of the day or night. If you are experiencing a medical emergency, however, you should contact your local police department or first responders by dialing dialing 911. If the situation is not an immediate life-or-death crisis, the codeine hotline is more than ready to assist you in locating treatment resources, or lend an ear to discuss your relationship with prescription drugs.

What Kind of Questions Will They Ask When I Call a Codeine Hotline?

When you call The Recovery Village’s codeine hotline, you’ll be asked a series of questions to help the intake coordinator best understand needs. Different hotlines may ask unique questions, but all are designed to provide you with the best service possible and find the right fit for your unique situation. Some of the questions asked may include:

  • How long have you been using codeine?
  • How often and how much codeine do you take?
  • Have you struggled with substance use before?
  • Do you have a family history of addiction?
  • Are there any co-occurring disorders that we should know about (eating disorders, alcohol addiction or mental health issues)?
  • Are you interested in seeking treatment for codeine addiction?

When I Call, Is the Conversation Confidential?

At The Recovery Village, all calls are completely private. If you are calling another helpline, it is important to verify the confidentiality of your call. When you call our hotline, you will speak with a compassionate intake coordinator whose priority is helping you overcome addiction. Your privacy and safety is the top priority at The Recovery Village.

Can I Start the Codeine Rehab, Detox or Recovery Process at the Time of My Call?

If you are ready to start treatment for codeine addiction, calling The Recovery Village helpline is the first step. An intake coordinator will work with you to determine the best course of action for your unique situation. In many cases, treatment can begin just hours after the initial phone call.
