Cocaine is a highly addictive stimulant drug that typically comes in the form of a fine white powder. Cocaine is generally ingested nasally, or snorted. The National Institute on Drug Abuse reports that cocaine works by increasing the amount of dopamine within the brain; a chemical messenger that partially controls both movement and reward. Cocaine prevents dopamine from being recycled as it normally is, and a large amount of the chemical starts to build up in the space between nerve cells, which will prevent them from effectively communicating and carrying out their regular function. Over time the brain will adapt to the excessive dopamine and it will become less sensitive to cocaine as a direct result. Individuals who have been using cocaine and have started to develop a tolerance will take larger quantities more frequently as a result, ultimately leading to substance dependency.

Once tolerance develops, symptoms of withdrawal will be inevitable upon ceased use. At CuraWest we understand the full scope of cocaine abuse, addiction and withdrawal. Our main priority is helping individuals who have been suffering at the hands of a cocaine abuse disorder begin the lifelong journey of addiction recovery. The first step of this journey, medically monitored detox, is extremely important in setting a solid foundation for continued sobriety. At CuraWest we have client comfort and safety in mind. Our carefully developed detox program offers an unmatched level of clinical care; one that will not be found in a hospital setting or in any state-run facility.

The Scope of Cocaine Abuse in the U.S.

Because there has been such a significant rise in opioid abuse and addiction over the past decade, many mistakenly believe that rates of cocaine use and abuse have been on the decline. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, cocaine use throughout the United States has actually remained relatively stable since the year 2009. In the year 2014, it was found that there were roughly 1.5 million current cocaine users throughout the country, the vast majority between the ages of 18 and 25. Out of these users, roughly 913,000 suffered at the hands of a serious cocaine addiction. At CuraWest we have extensive experience treating men and women of all ages who have been struggling with cocaine addiction. As far as this specific chemical substance is concerned, medical detox will always be a necessary first step on the road to recovery. While the symptoms of cocaine withdrawal are generally not life-threatening, they can cause extreme and lasting physical discomfort when not overseen and treated by a team of knowledgeable medical professionals.

At CuraWest the comfort of our clients is our main priority. We are a private, homestyle medical detox, dedicated to providing safe and pain-free detoxification services that far exceed those provided by a hospital or a state-run facility.

About Cocaine

The effects of cocaine set in quickly – almost immediately after the first dose has been taken. Part of the reason why cocaine is so highly addictive is that its effects last for only a short period of time, usually subsiding within an hour. This leads the user to reach for more of the chemical substance before the effects wear off, often leading to a vicious cycle of abuse. The short-term effects of cocaine use include feelings of euphoria and general well-being, increased energy levels, increased mental alertness and hypersensitivity. Those who use cocaine will typically also experience a decreased appetite and disrupted sleep patterns. Some of the short-term physical effects include profuse sweating, increased heart rate and a spike in blood pressure. The long-term effects of cocaine use are far more serious. Individuals who abuse this chemical substance for any prolonged period of time are liable to do extensive and sometimes irreversible harm to their physical bodies. Many chronic cocaine users will experience significant weight loss and malnourishment, heart-related issues, an increased risk of stroke, a loss of smell and chronic nosebleeds and an increased risk of contracting serious infectious diseases like HIV or hepatitis.

If you have been suffering at the hands of a cocaine abuse disorder of any severity, CuraWest is available to help. We have extensive experience treating even the most serious symptoms of cocaine withdrawal. We understand that where cocaine abuse and addiction are concerned, receiving quality clinical care is absolutely crucial. For this reason, we have developed a comprehensive and highly personalized program of cocaine detox – one that focuses on physical, mental and emotional healing.

Cocaine Addiction – Signs and Symptoms

There are several signs and symptoms to look for when attempting to determine whether or not an individual is experiencing a cocaine abuse disorder. Some of the more common symptoms of cocaine addiction are as follows:

  • Seemingly unexplained mood swings – Those who have been grappling with cocaine abuse will generally appear happy one moment and angry and agitated the next. Cocaine abuse severely disrupts emotional regulation. It is not uncommon for individuals to isolate after a cocaine binge, actively avoiding their loved ones and appearing to be a completely different person than they were when they were actively using the drug.
  • Physical changes, such as significant weight loss and nasal issues – Those who are suffering at the hands of a cocaine addiction will often experience a chronic runny nose or regular nosebleeds. Because of reduced appetite, they will also often lose a noticeable amount of weight in a short period of time.
  • Psychological symptoms, namely anxiety and depression – Cocaine users will begin to experience changes to their mental health with continued use. Even when an individual is not currently under the influence of cocaine, he or she is likely to experience significant anxiety, unrelenting feelings of sadness and even symptoms like paranoia or hallucinations.
  • Significant financial issues – Cocaine is not an inexpensive substance. Individuals who are suffering from cocaine dependency will generally find themselves in debt. They may even resort to illegal activities in order to continue supporting their habit.
  • Symptoms of cocaine withdrawal – This is where CuraWest comes into play – the symptoms of cocaine withdrawal can be extremely uncomfortable, and can even lead to life-threatening complications when left untreated. Our medical detox program focuses on client safety and comfort, and our luxury facility provides clients with amenities they will not find at any other medical detox facility.

Cocaine Withdrawal – Signs and Symptoms

Why is medical detox necessary for cocaine users? The scope of physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms can be severe. According to the US National Library of Medicine, the psychological symptoms of cocaine withdrawal will be more significant than the physical symptoms.

Signs of cocaine withdrawal include:

  • Restlessness
  • Agitation and irritability
  • Depression
  • General feelings of physical discomfort
  • Increased fatigue and need for sleep
  • Sleep-related issues, such as vivid nightmares
  • Feelings of anxiety

Symptoms of cocaine withdrawal are rarely life-threatening. However, in some extreme cases, psychological symptoms could lead to suicidal ideation. For this reason, every individual who is admitted to our medical detox program will undergo an in-depth psychiatric evaluation upon admission. This evaluation will determine if medication assisted treatment is necessary. In some instances, based on the unique needs of the individual client, a low-dose antidepressant will be administered to help alleviate the symptoms of cocaine withdrawal. Our team of experienced and compassionate practitioners might also prescribe a sleep aid, to help alleviate any potential sleep-cycle disruptions.
