Learn More About Cocaine Addiction Recovery

Cocaine abuse and addiction are widespread problems that have been linked with a variety of physical, mental, emotional, and socioeconomic damage. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), about 1.5 million have abused cocaine at least once in the previous 30 days, and about half of this group has engaged in behaviors that are consistent with cocaine addiction. SAMHSA researchers estimate that about 35 million Americans have abused cocaine at least once in their lives.
The typical immediate effect of cocaine is a brief yet intense burst of confidence, elevated mood, and energy. This occurs because cocaine causes the brain to release a significant quantity of dopamine, which is a neurotransmitter that is associated with pleasure. Because cocaine’s effects do not last very long, users often feel compelled to immediately ingest more of the drug, which puts them at risk for several dangerous outcomes, including overdose and dependence. Cocaine abuse is linked to about 4,000 deaths every year in the United States and is the cause of about 450,000 annual visits to emergency rooms every year.
At Keystone Treatment Center, we have been helping adults overcome problems related to cocaine abuse for decades. We understand the challenges that are associated with cocaine abuse, and we have worked diligently to develop comprehensive solutions that lead to long-term recovery.
Helping a Loved One
Helping a loved one or family member get treatment for cocaine addiction
Knowing that someone you care about is struggling with cocaine abuse or addiction can be painful. You are likely to experience fears for your loved one’s health and safety, confusion about his or her problems, and even frustration over his or her decisions. Having these reactions is both normal and understandable, but once the initial shock wears off, it is important to realize that you can play an essential role in your loved one’s life. Here are some of the many ways that you can help:
- Educate yourself about cocaine abuse and addiction. As you develop a greater understanding of the challenges your loved one is experiencing, you will be better equipped to offer valuable support and meaningful suggestions.
- Explore treatment options to identify the types of programs that may be best prepared to meet your loved one’s specific needs.
- Resist the temptation to judge. Your loved one’s substance use disorder is not evidence that he or she has a poor character or lacks discipline. Addiction is a dangerous, progressive disease. Never lose sight of the fact that your loved one is in pain.
- Focus on the future. It is no accident that “one day at a time” is a common mantra within the recovery community. Do not dwell on past setbacks or failures, and help your loved one to adopt a similar mentality.
Above all else, remain a constant source of encouragement and support for your loved one at all times. Treatment will be an important step in your loved one’s recovery journey, but it is just one step on a long path. Plan to be there for every step of the way.
Why Consider Rehab?
Why consider rehab for cocaine addiction
Every time a person abuses cocaine, he or she risks causing significant damage to his or her health, including heart attack, stroke, and respiratory failure, all of which can be fatal. Also, continued abuse of cocaine increases a person’s tolerance for the drug, which means that he or she will feel compelled to use increasingly larger or more potent doses which, in turn, raises the risk of experiencing severe damage.
The negative physical impact of untreated cocaine addiction can include irreversible damage to the heart, brain, lungs, liver, and kidneys. Depending upon the manner in which a person abuses cocaine, he or she may also have a heightened risk of contracting HIV/AIDS, hepatitis C, and other blood-borne diseases. Mentally and emotionally, individuals who engage in chronic cocaine abuse may experience anxiety, depression, psychosis, hallucinations, and delirium. In addition to this physical, mental, and emotional distress, people who become dependent upon cocaine are also likely to have problems maintaining healthy relationships, meeting their responsibilities in school and at work, avoiding legal problems, and otherwise participating in a productive and satisfying life.
