COCAINE DETOX & REHAB

Lasting recovery from a cocaine addiction requires time, patience and endurance in order to overcome withdrawal symptoms and achieve a healthy, happy life.

Choosing Triumph Recovery and trusting our team to treat you or a loved one suffering from an addiction to cocaine will be the most important step in your rehabilitation.

We are there for you not only during the detoxification process but after, as you continue your journey to full recovery.

Starting with detox, every patient at Triumph Recovery receives individual treatment thoroughly based on his or her “cocaine abuse history” and aimed at achieving full rehab and developing a “strong immunity against drugs.”

Cocaine is a very strong addictive stimulant drug made from the leaves of the coca plant native to South America.

Uses and Prevalence of Cocaine

Cocaine or coke, being a strong stimulant, is used for recreational and medical purposes. It is highly addictive and even when used for a short time the likelihood of becoming dependent on it is quite high. Cocaine is usually snorted, inhaled like smoke or taken by means of injection into a vein in the form of a solution.

As a matter of fact, about 100-500 billion dollars is circulated for the illegal use of cocaine annually. Moreover, approximately 14 to 21 million people use the drug every year which makes it the second most illegal drug “in popularity” after cannabis. As of 2013, the usage of cocaine has resulted in 4,300 deaths.

In medicine, cocaine is used as a numbing medium in painful procedures. Some countries use cocaine for such conditions as mouth and lung ulcers.

When used for recreational purposes, the effects of cocaine can last from 15 minutes to an hour. The drug strongly affects the nervous system and makes the user feel euphoric and energetic. However, as addiction develops and these feelings of euphoria and happiness have passed, the physical and mental side effects start and begin “destroying” the person. Cocaine addiction is a much more serious issue than those dependent on it believe, and it is to be treated with the help of health care professionals.

Effects of Cocaine

Depending on how much the drug you have taken, as well as how it was ingested, the intensity of side effects those that use cocaine experience will be different. The short-term effects that cause addicts to start using cocaine are substituted with more serious mental and physical long-term effects that might last from months to years.

The immediate effects of cocaine include:

  •  Feeling of euphoria
  • Agitation
  • Fast heart rate
  • Sweating
  • Enlargement of pupils
  • Intense flow of energy

After feelings of well-being subside, many experience symptoms such as:

  • High blood pressure
  • Chest pain
  • Headaches
  • Seizures
  • Cardiac arrhythmia
  • Stroke
  • Coma

The more long-lasting effects of cocaine abuse, some of which may never go away even after detox include:

  •  Paranoia
  • Depression
  •  Irritability
  •  Aggressiveness
  •  Higher risks of stroke and seizures
  • Problems with liver
  • Kidney damage
  • Gastrointestinal tract problems
  • Damage to nasal membrane, lungs, and other tissues
  • Swelling and/or bleeding of the brain
  • Higher risk of Hepatitis C and AIDS
  • Death

Cocaine Withdrawal Symptoms

While the effects of long term cocaine use can linger, it’s never too late to get the help you need to flush the substance from your system and live a life free from dependence on it. Going through detox and rehabilitation will lead to a better, healthier lifestyle – it’s like being born again where you can put your cocaine addiction and use behind you.

Cocaine withdrawal is not an easy process and it requires patience and willpower in order to cope with all the symptoms that will present themselves during the detox process. Cocaine withdrawal symptoms can vary from person to person depending on:

  • How long you have been dependent on the drug.
  • How the drug was being taken.
  • How you stop using it i.e. whether a gradual tapering off process or through cold turkey withdrawal.

Cold turkey Cocaine withdrawal will bring forward more severe withdrawal symptoms than the more gradual approach. The latter would be the wiser choice, however if under the care of a health care professional both cases can help in overcoming addiction.

The most common cocaine withdrawal symptoms addicts in recovery experience include:

  •  Depression
  •  Anxiety
  •  Exhaustion
  •  Concentration problems
  •  Increased appetite
  •  Sleepiness or the opposite insomnia
  • Fatigue
  •  Tremors
  •  Unpleasant dreams/nightmares
  •  Hyperactivity
  •  Suicidal thoughts

First 1-3 Hours
The moment you stop taking cocaine physically and realize it mentally, withdrawal symptoms start to surface. During the first few hours you will already feel exhaustion, irritability and have an increased appetite. What’s more interesting, is during this period cravings are not as severe as in the upcoming stage.

Week 1
The first week of detox is when you will start feeling an intense need and strong cocaine cravings. This period is characterized by symptoms such as insomnia, nightmares and abrupt mood swings.

Weeks 2-4
The symptoms that appeared during the previous period continue for the next couple of weeks, to which concentration problems, emotional breakdowns, irritability and agitation are added.

Weeks 5-10
After having overcome the difficult withdrawal symptoms during the first month of recovery, the healing of the mind and body can begin. During this time the previous cocaine withdrawal symptoms will gradually disappear. However, even after detox some may still feel the need for cocaine at times, which can cause anxiety and uneasiness but with time these feelings will leave you as well.
