Cocaine Addiction Treatment

Cocaine use is dangerous on many levels. Besides the serious legal, social and career ramifications that can come from using cocaine, the drug can cause significant health concerns. In addition, street cocaine is rarely pure – it's cut with a variety of substances to make it less expensive to sell. Cocaine might include talcum powder, cornstarch, flour, amphetamines or other things that are even more dangerous for the body.

Some dangerous physical effects of cocaine can include:

  • Development of an enlarged heart
  • Cardiac arrest or heart attacks
  • Constricted blood vessels
  • A faster-than-normal heart beat
  • Serious mental health issues, including depression and anxiety

Cocaine Withdrawal SymptomsOften, individuals who are addicted to cocaine know that the substance is dangerous, but they continue to seek it. Addiction to cocaine, which is in part a physical response of the body to the way the drug interacts with the brain, can drive you to take actions you wouldn't normally take. You might act illegally, dodge work and other obligations or treat people you care about in a poor way as you concentrate solely on getting more of the drug.

One of the most frightening aspects of a drug addiction is that you might even be aware that you are engaging in damaging behavior, but you can't stop it on your own. This is one reason professional treatment for a cocaine addiction is so important. By stepping away from yourself and your life, and placing your trust in recovery professionals, you can stop this cycle of drug seeking behavior and use.

Even in an inpatient facility for cocaine addiction treatment, getting off the drug isn't going to be easy. First, you'll have to face the physical withdrawal symptoms. Luckily with professional help, you don't have to face the full severity of such symptoms – medical staff are able to make you much more comfortable as you detox in an inpatient setting. After detoxing, you will work with counselors and other professionals to discover the root causes behind your using and learn coping mechanisms.

Don't wait until cocaine addiction leads you to make a decision that puts your life in jeopardy or ruins your relationship with a loved one. Call now and talk to one of our compassionate admissions counselors. We take calls 24 hours a day, 7 days a week all year long.

Signs of Cocaine Use or Addiction

Effects of Cocaine AbuseDrug seeking behavior – including stealing money to pay for drugs or taking prescription medication from friends and family – can be a sign of cocaine abuse. Cocaine use can also lead to a number of behavioral changes. While a single change in someone's behavior doesn't necessarily indicate a drug addiction, if you notice several of the following changes in a short period of time, you might want to talk to your loved one or reach out to a professional for advice about how to approach the situation.

  • Depression
  • Nervousness or agitation, especially if it comes and goes
  • A lack of attention to basic care tasks, such as hygiene
  • Apathy about hobbies or people that used to interest the person
  • Sleeping more than normal or engaging in long periods of sleep at a time
  • Sudden struggles with school work, lower grades or failure to complete work responsibly when someone has always done so
  • Missing more work than normal
  • Uncharacteristic mistakes at work
  • Engaging in riskier-than-normal behavior

In addition to changes in behavior, cocaine use can cause numerous physical symptoms. Some symptoms that might indicate a person is abusing cocaine include:

  • Constantly runny nose
  • Track marks
  • Nosebleeds
  • Burned fingers or lips from smoking crack cocaine
  • Dilated pupils

The type of physical symptoms depends on whether someone is snorting, smoking or injecting cocaine. You might also notice some mental and emotional signs of cocaine use:

  • They might exhibit poor judgment or problems concentrating
  • Memory might be reduced
  • Paranoia and anxiety is usually increased
  • Someone using cocaine can see hallucinations or experience delusions
  • Aggressive behavior might come out as they seek drugs
  • During a high, they might exude over-confidence, euphoria or unexplained excitement.

If someone you love is exhibiting some of these symptoms and you believe they might be abusing cocaine or another drug, call (877) 392-3342 today. Our admissions counselors are always available, and every call is completely confidential. We can help you understand the situation and risks and provide some advice for next steps that might help your loved

Our Cocaine Addiction Treatment Program

When you call The Treatment Center, we begin by working with you to understand your situation so we can offer the best advice about treating cocaine addiction. Our inpatient cocaine treatment program begins with an admissions process that ensures you understand the facility, the treatment goals and the administrative details such as insurance and what you need to bring for your stay.

Once you're at our facility, you'll be cared for by experienced medical and behavioral staff who are adept at working with people suffering from addiction. We don't look at your addiction as a bad habit you can break via positive thinking and some lifestyle changes. We know if it was that easy, you wouldn't need us.

Addiction is a chronic disease process that requires specific treatment methods for recovery. We work with you to apply those treatment methods, beginning with medically supervised cocaine detox and ending with aftercare that supports you as you integrate back into regular life.

Why Inpatient Treatment is Often Best for Cocaine Addiction

For many people, seeking help via an inpatient treatment program is especially daunting. Reasons you might not want to enter an inpatient facility include feeling like you're giving up control over your life, worry that life will go on without you or fears that you might lose relationships or your job. We understand those fears, but the hard truth is that not seeking treatment and continuing to use drugs is what is likely to cause all those negative consequences. If you're addicted to cocaine, you’ve already lost control of your life. Inpatient treatment helps you take that control back!

The Benefits of a Personalized Cocaine Treatment Program

At The Treatment Center, our professional staff help you develop a personalized cocaine treatment program. We know that every person is unique. What got you using and addicted to cocaine in the first place is unique to you – what helps you get off the drug must be customized as well.

Our treatment plans usually involve a variety of services, including:

Preventing Cocaine Relapse

According to NIDA, a simple reminder of past cocaine use can lead to a relapse. Studies have shown that cues that remind someone of their cocaine use can cause a trigger in the brain. That response might lead to powerful impulses to seek and use cocaine again, and it can occur even after months or years of sobriety. Cocaine relapse is a very real possibility for anyone who is addicted to the drug. Through therapy and relapse prevention programs, our cocaine treatment program helps you build a strong foundation for sobriety. 

While it's not easy to overcome cocaine addiction, we know that you can do it with the right help. Call us today at (877) 392-3342 to find out how to seek that help before it's too late.
