Cocaine is a very strong stimulant substance that affects the lives of those individuals who abuse it. Known for the extreme high that it produces, the drug is typically snorted in a powder form. However, since the high is often short-lived, those who abuse cocaine on a regular basis will find that they need more and more of it to achieve the desired effect. As their cocaine use increases in quantity and/or in frequency, they put themselves in danger for developing a substance use disorder that they cannot control without the help of professionals. As soon as an individual becomes addicted to cocaine, he or she will grapple with many different physical and mental issues, and will be unable to live a happy, healthy, well-balanced life.

As the health effects and personal damages caused by one’s abuse of cocaine continue to mount, he or she might find him or herself in a downward spiral that he or she simply cannot handle alone. When this happens, he or she will likely need support in the form of professional treatment to achieve the skills and behaviors needed to recover from a life of chemical dependence. Professional treatment provides a secure, comfortable environment to begin healing from cocaine abuse, and offers many different therapeutic treatments to those within this setting. However, without first taking the step to rid one’s mind and body of toxic substances like cocaine, it will be hard, if not impossible, to obtain all the many benefits of treatment.

What Happens During Withdrawal

Learn more about what happens during withdrawal from cocaine

When an individual abruptly ends his or her cocaine use after abusing it for a period of time, a number of upsetting and painful mental and physical withdrawal symptoms can begin to develop. Serving as a deterrent to obtaining treatment for some, these symptoms can include the following:

  • Anxiety / depression
  • Sweating
  • Fatigue
  • Physical aches and pains
  • Irritability
  • Seizures
  • Paranoia
  • Vomiting
  • Agitation
  • Disorientation
  • Restlessness

A recovery attempt is considered to have failed when an individual tries to stop his or her cocaine use, however, continues to abuse the substance in an effort to prevent the onset of withdrawal symptoms. As time moves on, this cycle will only agitate the addiction and will make it even harder to obtain recovery.

Why Consider Detox

Why consider detox from cocaine at Cedar Crest Hospital & Residential Treatment Center in Belton, TX

Detoxification, which is more commonly known as detox, is the physiological process of being monitored by medical personnel while toxic substances are cleared from the body. Without the support of a top-ranking detox program, an individual will start to struggle with painful symptoms of withdrawal when he or she looks to stop cocaine use independently. These symptoms can cause the individual to continue to abuse this substance, even if he or she really does want to achieve sobriety.

Detox services are best suited for those who are preparing to partake in a treatment program, but who have been unable to achieve sobriety alone. This includes those individuals who might have tried to withdraw independently, as well as those who are scared of the pain that comes along with the process of withdrawal. Under specific circumstances, the process of withdrawal can be severely risky to one’s health, and when this occurs, a supervised detox program can keep these individuals safe and comfortable.

As withdrawal symptoms begin to kick in, the medical personnel working for the program will monitor each individual to ensure that he or she is having a safe experience. Additionally, some detox programs will supply prescription medications to decrease and/or remove the painful withdrawal symptoms that are occurring, allowing the individual to move forward into the next level of care without having to grapple with the suffering that tends to accompany cocaine withdrawal.

Detox programs are run by a handful of mental health professionals and medical staff who have specialized training in the needs of those who are afflicted with substance use disorder and other co-occurring conditions. Most often, the detox treatment team consists of the following:

  • Doctors
  • Nurses
  • Nurse practitioners
  • Counselors
Benefits of Detox

Learn more about the benefits of detox from cocaine

At the time of a supervised detox, an individual is provided with a safe space where he or she is comfortable and being monitored 24/7 as cocaine and other dangerous substances are cleared from his or her body. Detox programs go to great lengths to ensure a substance-free setting so that those within their care can be free from the temptation to abuse harmful substances, removing the risk of relapse entirely.

As an individual begins to move on the road to recovery, he or she cannot make the most of the support being offered to him or her without the clarity of mind and sound body that a detox program can supply. Attempting to start withdrawal from cocaine on one’s own tends to lead to a relapse and only serves to reinforce one’s addictive tendencies.

As long as substances of abuse remain present in one’s system, he or she cannot be fully ready to begin the journey to recovery. However, a supervised detox program allows individuals to effectively rid their bodies of addictive substances without the painful withdrawal symptoms that will chip away at their resolve and potentially threaten their safety. Individuals can then utilize detox to lay the groundwork for a successful recovery.
