Cocaine Addiction Treatment
Cocaine is a highly addictive stimulant derived from the coca plant that is grown in South America. Also referred to by street names such as “coke,” “blow,” and “crack,” the addictive drug is frequently viewed as a “classy” approach to getting high, because of its often glamourous depiction in films, television, and modern music. Cocaine produces feelings of joy, a perceived increase of energy, and euphoria. It causes an increased heart rate, which can be extremely hazardous to the user’s physical and mental health.
Cocaine Is Usually Not Pure, Leading To Deeper Addictions
In an effort to magnify its benefits, many coke dealers cut their item with a variety of different substances, a large portion of which are generally dangerous. Coke can be cut with methamphetamine, caffeine, boric acid, talcum or cornstarch. This can make it using cocaine exceptionally hazardous to your health. When a user doesn’t know what they’re purchasing, it can result in an unexpected overdose and even death.
Cocaine generally comes in two different forms. The powdered type of blow is typically snorted through the nose where it absorbs into the nasal tissue. Coke can also be broken up in water and injected with a needle into the bloodstream. Smoking cocaine is another common way to ingest the drug. Crack rock (also called “freebasing”), is highly addictive, with a faster-acting time as the drug is absorbed into the body through the tissue in the lungs. The duration and strength of the high experienced by coke addicts will depend on their method of use. Smoking cocaine causes a more prominent, yet shorter duration of a high, while snorting coke offers a more extended, less intense high that will last anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes. Cocaine recovery specialists are something to consider when breaking this addiction.
Going on a drug binge with cocaine is very common. This explains why when an addict has the drug, they will often tend to use all of it in one sitting. Cocaine is so addicting that your mind compulsively wants you to take more and more. This behavior inevitably leads to a “crash” that takes place once the person stops using the drug for a few hours. Once cocaine use continues over a short period of time, the compulsion to continue using the substance rarely just fades-away.

Cocaine withdrawal symptoms are often intense and difficult to manage alone.
Cocaine has some very extreme withdrawal symptoms: fatigue, drowsiness, depression, anger and anxiety are all commonly experienced once a person stops using cocaine. Many do not realize they have a problem until they stop using the drug or their body begins to go through a natural detox. Once a person begins feeling the withdrawal symptoms, they realized they had developed a chemical dependency on the substance. This explains why many people get addicted to cocaine without ever realizing it until they attempt to stop.
Addiction to cocaine is a significant physical and mental health issue that requires professional treatment efforts from a structured drug rehabilitation program. Long-term use of cocaine can permanently alter your brain’s own chemistry, rewiring your pleasure response centers. Cocaine abuse will prevent your brain cells from receiving dopamine which disrupts normal synapse communication. Using cocaine by any method, (snorting, smoking or shooting up) can cause permanent and severe brain damage. Even after a short period of use, coke can literally destroy your brain’s natural functions, which is why rehabilitation is so important for someone who has become addicted to cocaine.
How Do I know if the Brain is Permanently Damaged?
The human body and mind is a wondrous machine that has every capacity to heal. The healing process, however, differs for each individual. A client’s alcohol detox, drug detox, and recovery processes are dependent upon specific circumstances. These individual factors include age, amount and length of time using, in addition, what substances were abused and also, how dedicated the addict is to recover and stick to a clean, healthy lifestyle.
During the detoxification process, symptoms obviously vary per case but may reveal underlying present mental health issues. This is a vital part of the detox process, getting to the root cause of why the client turned to substances initially. Thus, many alcohol and drug detox treatment programs not only focus on the physical cleansing process. They also encompass mental health assessment and treatment (including care by psychiatrists, psychologists, and counselors).
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), addiction should be treated like any other chronic illness that affects the brain and body. Unfortunately, a lot of addicts are prone to relapse. This is why the first detox is so crucial to pave the way for a change. Addicts need to continue their recovery in a treatment setting so they receive clinical help. Identifying and managing their triggers and staying sober through all of the life’s circumstances is what’s needed. Just like someone with a previous case of depression checks in and monitors their moods to avoid negative behaviors, alike, addicts, and alcoholics need to continually stay aware of their recovery.
Get Cocaine Addiction Treatment Right Now
Since cocaine cravings can be persistent and seemingly never-ending, ongoing support and a strong focus on relapse prevention techniques should be the cornerstone of any cocaine addiction treatment program. Since many who abuse cocaine also tend to lose a lot of weight, eating less, staying up longer hours and burning more calories, a recovery program that incorporates a well-balanced, healthy diet can be beneficial.
Because cocaine is so strongly addictive, temptation and relapse triggers will be persistent long into recovery. An inpatient treatment program is the best option for someone who had been abusing cocaine and other stimulants. This setting will remove the triggers altogether, allowing the patient to focus on their recovery efforts while they learn how to live a life free from substance abuse and addiction.
