Cocaine Abuse and Treatment for Cocaine Addiction

There are many options available to adults seeking help overcoming their addiction to cocaine. Depending on the level of care and the length of the program will determine the types of programs that are available to you. Cocaine addiction has been linked to many mental and physical problems with prolonged usage. Inpatient treatment, outpatient care, daycare, and support groups are among the accepted forms of treatment for cocaine addiction. Medically assisted detox is not always necessary unless there are other drugs in the system at the time of intake.  If you or a loved one has a cocaine addiction and is ready to receive help, contact one of our treatment specialists and they will help you find the best option for treatment.

Inpatient Treatment for Cocaine Addiction 

Receiving treatment at an inpatient treatment center for cocaine addiction can be one of the best options for someone who has developed a serious addiction to cocaine. Treatment for cocaine at an inpatient treatment center can last anywhere from 21 days up to 90 days at most treatment centers for addiction. 

Therapy is the core of treatment for cocaine addiction. It will help assess the root problem, that had a huge part in the abuse of the drug, all the while helping you build coping skills for the stressful situations that life has to offer. Your therapist will start to plan a course of action for you to take home with you and set you up with aftercare to help you avoid relapses once initial treatment has been completed. 

It is sometimes beneficial for the client to go to treatment further away from home. Getting away from temptations and friends who may still be using is often better for many people. Clients who go to rehab in another state also have a harder time leaving treatment early as well. Depending on the situation, our counselors may suggest looking for substance abuse programs that are a plane flight away. Give us a call if you have any questions about cocaine abuse and treatment options

Long-Term Effects of Cocaine Use

Cocaine is an extremely addictive drug that can lead to addiction the very first time you use it. Side effects can include, increased heart rhythm and blood pressure, cardiac arrest, seizures, and even death can be among the side effects of cocaine abuse. Using cocaine is dangerous and the more you consume or use, the worse the side effects can get, putting distress on the brain and the heart. Cocaine-related deaths occur when there is too much of the drug in your system, causing rapid beating of the heart, putting the whole cardiovascular system in a state of emergency. This can lead to seizures and respiratory failure.

Cocaine, not unlike any drug, targets the brain’s neurotransmitters or the brain’s reward system. This will result in some pleasurable feelings of euphoria and well-being. Over some time, this will change the way the brain functions, leading the person to repeat the use of the drug. Cocaine is highly addictive itself but when you change the chemical makeup and the delivery system by changing the powder into rocks known as Crack, the use of the drug can go up exponentially, because the drug enters your system in a more efficient way through the lungs and straight up to the brain. Binge use will raise the risks of severe side effects since the user will need to intake more and more of the drug to try to get the desired effect that they got when they did the drug for the first time. This will lead to anxiety, irritability, and for some, a temporary state of paranoia or psychosis. Snorting cocaine for a prolonged period will irritate the inside of the nose and cause scabs to form on the mucous membrane which has been linked to septum damage that can lead to septum collapse.
