Cocaine Addiction and Treatment
A distinguished cocaine addiction recovery facility in Southern California, Chapters Capistrano develops treatment programs specific to each client—no cocaine addiction is the same, so no program is the same. Chapters is dedicated to compassionately guiding those in their cocaine rehab program to attain a drug-free life.
Manufactured from the coca plant, Cocaine is a crystalline tropane alkaloid. By stimulating the central nervous system, cocaine can instigate a sense of increased awareness and sensations of euphoria, as well as severely negatively affecting an addict’s life. The only legal use for cocaine is government-controlled medicinal purposes, and therefore possession of cocaine in any form is an acute crime. Its illegality appears insignificant considering the widespread distribution network and the high number of abusers, which has made the drug the second most popular illegal recreational drug in America.
Effects of Cocaine Abuse
Cocaine can be used orally, by injection, by insufflation (commonly known as snorting or sniffing), as well as other means, all of which can be lethal. In addition to harmful effects on the abuser physically, leading to cardiovascular and brain damage, cocaine can have emotional side-effects, including mood swings, paranoia, dramatic changes in personality and behavior, psychosis, and panic attacks.
Cocaine Detoxification Withdrawal Doesn’t Have tot be Painful
As a drug and alcohol rehab center, the Chapters addiction experts are aware that often people fear withdrawal so avoid treatment all together. Withdrawal can be uncomfortable, but it doesn’t have to be!
Our rehabilitation program uses a drug-specific detox, the most traditional and safest method of withdrawal from cocaine addiction. Our team administers mild prescription medication to lower the risk of seizure and lessen withdrawal effects. Such medications are prescribed in smaller increments until the body is physically stabilized and the medications are no longer needed.
Cocaine addiction recovery presents unique challenges and therefore our team at Chapters Capistrano is prepared to help you in a successful recovery.
