Cocaine Addiction Treatment

Cocaine addiction is a powerful stimulant with extremely addictive strength that damages the brain directly. Coke, blow, or snow just to name a few well known names for cocaine. Cocaine can be snorted via the nose, smoke or injected. Above It All drug rehab center is designed for individuals who need an environment separate from their home life in which to focus on their recovery.

Cocaine effects a person within minutes of using the drug and can last anywhere from minutes to a few hours. In the beginning using cocaine can give an individual a feeling of excitement, energy, alertness, and make the user become very talkative. Cocaine temporarily diminishes the users need for sleep or food. An anxiety, restlessness, irritability and paranoia are very common feelings for coming down of the drug period.

Here are some most common effects of cocaine:
Confusion, Flow of energy, Increase in heart rate and blood pressure, Loss of appetite, Paranoia, Rapid speech, Runny nose, or Stuffy nose.

It is very common that user could become cocaine addicted from the very first us of the drug. When cocaine dependency developed, an individual may experience the following complications:  Blurred vision, Chest pain, Hallucinations, Heart attack, Heart disease, Seizures, or Stroke.

Cocaine treatment has two components: detoxification and rehabilitation. The first step is to stop using the drug. A medically-supervised detox program may consist of medications given to help a patient to get through the need for cocaine period. Their doctor will study and assess their own unique situation. He will review their mental and physical history, along with their past days of cocaine abuse. He will put forward a detox plan that will help them detox from their cocaine addiction safely and painlessly until they are ready to begin their treatment program.

Second step in Cocaine Treatment is recovery and rehabilitation in a drug rehab facility.    A person who has been using cocaine associates certain people, places and feelings with drug use. They will need help to identify the kinds of things that act as “triggers” that make them feel like they want to use the drug again. Over time, they can learn how to deal with their triggers and substitute other behaviors in the place of using cocaine. Both individual and group therapy may be used at Above It All Treatment Center for this type of addiction.
