Codeine and morphine are both used to treat moderate to severe pain and are classified as narcotics. Some people begin taking these medications as a way of treating pain and then build up a tolerance for the drug, requiring a greater dosage. Eventually, they can become addicted and are unable to come off the drugs on their own due to severe withdrawal symptoms. These basic opiates are detectable in any of Health Street’s 5 panel (or greater) urine or hair tests.
