Your Recovery Is Possible

Cocaine Addiction Treatment in Marietta

Break the Cycle at Atlanta Treatment LLC

Cocaine speeds up your entire body, which can make you feel good – at first. After the initial high, many people get nervous, angry, and/or paranoid. Once they are sober, people who use cocaine suffer from sadness and exhaustion for days. These feelings may lead them to return to the drug once again, which can quickly lead to a loss of control and cocaine addiction.

Breaking the cycle of addiction is difficult, but Atlanta Treatment LLC is here to help. Our proven programs can give you the tools you need to stop using cocaine and build yourself a positive future.

How Cocaine Works

Cocaine is a white powder that people snort, mix with water and inject, or smoke in small white rocks called crack. It is made from the leaves of the South American coca plant. As a drug, cocaine is a powerfully addictive stimulant that increases the levels of dopamine in the brain.

Short-term effects of cocaine include:

  • Extreme happiness and energy
  • Mental alertness
  • Hypersensitivity to sight, sound, and touch
  • Minimized desire for sleep and food
  • Restlessness
  • Irritability
  • Paranoia (extreme and unreasonable distrust of others)
  • Nausea
  • Constricted blood vessels
  • Dilated pupils
  • Increased blood pressure and body temperature
  • Fast or irregular heartbeat
  • Tremors and muscle twitches

Cocaine Addiction Statistics

Cocaine is one of the most commonly abused drugs in the United States, especially among young people. According to the 2019 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 5.5 million people over the age of 12 reported having used cocaine at least once in the past year. This same year, roughly 1 million people met the clinical requirements for having cocaine use disorder. Unfortunately, cocaine-related fatalities continue to rise despite the fact that only about 2% of the population uses cocaine.

Long-Term Health Effects of Cocaine

Over time, your brain and body can develop a tolerance to cocaine, which means you will need more and more of the drug to feel its effects. You may also experience withdrawal symptoms if you stop taking the drug. Tolerance and withdrawal are 2 of the most obvious physical signs of drug addiction, but long-term cocaine use can lead to other physical and psychological effects as well.

The long-term effects of cocaine include:

  • Unhealthy weight loss
  • Headaches
  • Abdominal pain
  • Chest pain
  • Heart arrhythmia
  • Heart attack
  • Seizure
  • Stroke
  • Respiratory disease
  • Weakened immune system
  • Hepatitis
  • Gangrene of the bowels
  • Panic
  • Hallucinations
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Impaired judgment
  • Repetitive or abnormal behaviors

These consequences should be enough to make someone stop using cocaine, but drug addiction takes away your ability to quit or cut back on your own. People struggling with addiction may also want to keep doing cocaine, despite the negative effects the drug is having on their lives. If you notice yourself or someone you love using cocaine and recovering from its effects frequently, they may be suffering from drug addiction.

The Process of Cocaine Addiction Treatment

Treatment for cocaine addiction at a rehab center typically involves a comprehensive approach aimed at addressing the physical, psychological, and behavioral aspects of addiction. Here's an outline of the general process involved:

  1. Assessment and Evaluation: When a person enters a rehab center, they undergo a thorough assessment to determine the extent of their addiction, overall health, mental health conditions, and any co-occurring disorders. This evaluation helps in designing a personalized treatment plan.
  2. Detoxification: For cocaine addiction, detoxification is the initial phase where the body clears itself of the drug. Medical supervision may be necessary to manage withdrawal symptoms, which can include depression, anxiety, irritability, fatigue, and intense cravings. However, unlike some other substances, there are no specific medications approved to treat cocaine withdrawal itself.
  3. Medical and Therapeutic Interventions: Rehab centers often offer a combination of medical interventions and therapeutic approaches. Medications may be used to manage co-occurring mental health issues or to address specific symptoms related to withdrawal or cravings. Behavioral therapies such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), contingency management, and motivational enhancement therapy are commonly employed to help individuals change their thoughts, behaviors, and coping mechanisms.
  4. Individualized Counseling: One-on-one counseling sessions with trained therapists or counselors help individuals explore underlying issues contributing to their addiction, develop coping strategies, set goals, and work on relapse prevention.
  5. Group Therapy: Participating in group therapy sessions allows individuals to share experiences, receive support from peers going through similar struggles, and learn from each other's journeys. Group therapy can be an essential component in building a support network.
  6. Life Skills and Education: Rehab centers often offer programs to teach practical life skills and provide education on addiction, relapse prevention, stress management, and healthy coping mechanisms to support long-term recovery.
  7. Aftercare Planning: As the program nears completion, rehab centers help individuals develop an aftercare plan. This plan may include ongoing therapy, support group participation (such as Narcotics Anonymous), transitional housing, or other community-based support services to maintain sobriety post-rehab.
  8. Follow-up and Support: Many rehab centers offer follow-up services to monitor progress, offer support, and modify treatment plans if necessary. Continuing care and support are crucial in preventing relapse.
