Cocaine Addiction is a problem that can completely control a person’s life and radically change them from the person you used to know. In our rehab program you, or your addicted loved one, will be set on a path that can completely free them of this highly destructive addiction. We do this through a combination of patient detoxification and counseling, both individually and in group. We also give them the tools and support they will need to successfully survive in society after cocaine treatment has been completed.
Cocaine users tend to exhibit unique behaviors and thought processes that may require the use of specialized cocaine detox medication and treatment planning during drug rehab. Cocaine detox may be appropriate for individuals who use powder cocaine as well as crack cocaine. It was believed, in the past, that cocaine detox did not produce withdrawal symptoms but, on the contrary, resulted in psychological dependence in the user. It is now believed that heavy cocaine use over a period of time does induce detox symptoms when usage is stopped abruptly. Cocaine addicts experience intense cravings to use the drug and tend to stop at nothing to obtain more.
The most apparent signs of needing cocaine detox and drug rehab are changes in behavior. Cocaine users tend to have extreme, irrational mood swings and may become easily angered. They often have problems sleeping and may engage in repetitive activities, such as continually cleaning and re-cleaning objects or vacuuming a room over and over. People needing cocaine detox may also be prone to violence, often directed at a partner or loved one. You will also find that they tend to become irritated and angry when confronted about their drug use or the possibility of going to drug rehab.
In fact, cocaine users can become so addicted that they are often far more consumed with the process of finding and using cocaine than they are about eating or taking care of themselves. Heavy cocaine users tend to lose weight, in direct correlation with rising levels of use, but this is not always the case.
What else tells you that a person has become addicted to using cocaine? In our experience, we have found that cocaine users rarely admit that they are using the drug and may concoct an elaborate web of lies to conceal the use and consequences of using cocaine. After a time, this manipulative behavior becomes apparent to all but the cocaine user, who may cling desperately to the notion that family members and loved ones still believe these elaborate stories.
We can help your loved one free him or herself from this terrible addiction that is destroying their health and possibly even their lives.
