Cocaine is a powerful drug in the stimulant family. It can be referred to as ‘coke’, ‘dust’, ‘white’, and ‘snow’ – amongst many other names. It is highly addictive and very dangerous – especially when in its freebase version (known as ‘crack’) – as this is when it hasn’t been chemically neutralised. Taking cocaine produces a feeling of being ‘high’. This feeling is extremely pleasurable, and users often feel the need to get the high again, and again. Over time, the user will need to increase the amount of cocaine they take in order to achieve the same high – because (just like other drugs) the body develops a tolerance to it.
If you are worried about a cocaine addiction, you can look out for a few signs –
• Do they seem hyper/full of energy/and/or excited whilst having issues with their nose (for instance a nose bleed or runny nose)?
• Have they lost weight?
• Do they seem to suffer from anxiety/mood swings/nervousness?
• Do they have trouble sleeping?
• Has their ability to concentrate altered?
• Have they displayed any signs of paranoia or experienced hallucinations?
If you or your friend are experiencing the above symptoms, and you’d like to make a positive change to your life and get help for your addiction, please get in touch with us today. We offer free help and advice for addictive disorders and our team will be happy to talk to you about how we can help you start turning your life around. We offer residential cocaine rehab services, a comprehensive treatment plan to tackle your cocaine addiction, and expert support from a team of highly skilled professionals.
Cocaine addiction is serious. If it is left untreated it can lead to changes in your blood pressure and heart rate. It has also been linked to breathing difficulties, vomiting, damage to the nasal region, lungs, anxiety, as well as stroke, heart attack, and/or convulsions. These are, quite clearly, severe medical conditions, so it is important that when you choose to detox from cocaine you choose a clinic that is reputable and experienced in dealing with cocaine addiction. During withdrawal you may experience anger, depression, shaking, disrupted sleep, and cravings for cocaine, but we will be there for you throughout your detox and we will work with you to get you through to the other side.
If you are seeking help and are looking for a cocaine detox programme, you have made the first big step on your path to recovery. Right now, you may be feeling anxious, worried, and alone. Your addiction may have alienated you from your friends and loved ones and caused major chaos and disruption in your life. Seeking help is a turning point and we are glad you have found us.
When you make an appointment to meet with us, you will be assessed prior to your admission so that we can understand your situation. Once a full assessment has been completed, and a treatment plan has been agreed on, you will work with our dedicated team to rid your body of any traces of cocaine. You will undergo a cocaine detox programme and this will all be done under the careful supervision of our highly trained, and skilled staff, in the safety of our relaxing detox environment. You will follow a personalised recovery programme which could include psychotherapy work, group sessions, and talking therapy such as CBT and counselling to ensure it’s not just the addiction that is faced – but the root cause of it, too.
If you are ready to live a healthier, and happier life, and be free of your addiction to cocaine, then call us today to talk about the right step forward for you. Pick up the phone, and speak to our understanding, skilled team in confidence.
