Cocaine Addiction and Treatment
A leading cocaine addition recovery center is Chapters Capistrano in Southern California. Treatment programs are exceptionally personalized, because each client is affected differently by cocaine addiction. Chapters’ addiction experts develop a specialized approach for each addict to support a drug-free lifestyle.
Cocaine, a crystalline tropane alkaloid created from the coca plant, stimulates the central nervous system. While this can create a sense of heightened awareness and feelings of euphoria, the drug can also have catastrophic consequences on an addict’s life. Other than for government approved medical purposes, the use and possession of cocaine in any form is a serious crime. Despite its illegality, and greatly due to the extensive distribution network in the United States, cocaine has become the second most popular illegal recreational drug in America, second to marijuana.
Effects of Cocaine Abuse
Methods for using cocaine include: orally, by insufflation (commonly known as snorting or sniffing), and injection, all of which can be fatal. Because of its severe impact on the abuser’s body, cocaine addiction can often induce cardiovascular and brain damage as well as many other taxing side effects. Emotional side-effects of such dependence can include dramatic changes in personality and behavior, mood swings, panic attacks, paranoia, and psychosis.
Cocaine Detoxification Withdrawal Doesn’t Have to be Painful
We, at Chapters, recognize withdrawal makes many people fearful and therefore avoid rehabilitation. Withdrawal can be uncomfortable, but it doesn’t have to be! Our drug and alcohol rehab center is here to guide you through a safe and supportive detox.
The cocaine rehab program at Chapters utilizes the most traditional and safe form of cocaine withdrawal: a detox driven by prescribed drugs. Under medical supervision, our clients receive mild prescription medication to ease withdrawal symptoms and reduce the risk of seizure. Such medications are given in lessening amounts until the body is safely stabilized.
