Cocaine Rehab Program & Cocaine Addiction Treatment


An Introduction To Cocaine Addiction

Cocaine comes from the coca plant, which is native to South America. It is currently illegal in all forms in the United States. The word “cocaine” is derived from “coca” in the South American language Quechua. Cocaine is a stimulant drug that intensifies pleasurable feelings. Cocaine hydrochloride is a strong central nervous system (CNS) stimulant derived from the leaves of the coca plant. It is also known as coke, C, snow, blow, and white dope.

Cocaine is one of the most expensive drugs on the market, causing many users to run into financial problems. It’s no wonder that it’s so expensive either – while Cocaine doesn’t cause physical dependency, the psychological addiction it creates is one of the worst of any drug.

Cocaine addiction is a brain disease that affects both brain structure and brain function. Addiction affects neurotransmitters in the brain that are responsible for reward, pleasure, memory, coordination, and behavior control. Snorting cocaine can lead to compulsive use of the drug. Cocaine addicts may continue to use cocaine even when it is causing them problems. For example, they may continue to use cocaine even when they have run out of money to buy the drug, or even when they have gotten into serious trouble at work or in their personal lives. Some people report feeling like they don’t even have a choice.

The first stage of cocaine rehab is detox, which eliminates the toxins cocaine leaves behind in the body. However, the detox process also involves withdrawal, which can cause negative effects. Examples of withdrawal side effects include insomnia, mood swings, and suicidal thoughts. You may also be given IV fluids to keep you hydrated and help flush out the drug from your system. Doctors may also prescribe medications to treat side effects such as nausea, vomiting, and agitation.

Medical detox is the safest and most effective treatment for stopping cocaine use. Treatment for cocaine addiction is the same as treatment for addiction to alcohol and opiates. The first step is to detox and withdrawal from cocaine with the help of medical professionals. Unlike alcohol and opiates, however, there are no medications that reduce cocaine cravings.



More About Our Cocaine Treatment Center

In order to achieve long-term sobriety, cocaine users must also continue their treatment with rehab. This provides therapy to address the behavioral, emotional, and mental side effects of cocaine addiction. Cocaine rehab treatment typically includes individual and group therapy, as well as education about the nature of chemical dependency and strategies for relapse prevention.

Furthermore, the care provided in a safe, comfortable environment for focusing entirely on getting clean. One of the biggest benefits involves getting away from the old people and places that perpetuated the cocaine habit. The most important thing when it comes to cocaine addiction is to be open and honest with your doctor about what you’re taking, when you started, how much you’re taking, and how long you’ve been taking it for. 


Many people suffering from a mental illness are also suffering from a substance use disorder. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), 18.7 million Americans aged 12 or older were affected by a serious mental illness in 2013. Mental health is evaluated during cocaine rehab and any mental health disorders that may co-occur with addiction are identified and treated accordingly. 

It’s vital that all co-occurring disorders are assessed and treated. Cocaine addiction is considered a complex brain disease, and lasting sobriety is dependent on getting to the root cause of the issue. At Seachange Recovery, a JCAHO accredited facility, you can rest assured no stone will be left unturned.
