About Cocaine Addiction



Cocaine is often thought of as a high-status drug, one that's used by celebrities and wealthy people. But the real truth of cocaine addiction is much less glamorous. Cocaine addiction harms the brain, and nearly every other part of the body as well. As the drug travels through the blood, it constricts arteries and blood vessels, which can cause heart attacks, strokes, and ulcers. It can also do damage to the lungs and respiratory system, kidneys, and in some cases, can cause sudden death. Even though many cocaine users know these effects, cocaine is a hard drug to quit. It creates a very powerful high that many users feel they cannot live without. After experiencing the high, users often experience a low, during which they can feel guilty and depressed. To avoid these feelings, people often just use more cocaine, and eventually, it becomes harder and harder to stop.

Treatment of Cocaine Addiction



Because cocaine is an addictive substance, it causes the user to experience a crash when the drug is discontinued. After using cocaine on a regular basis, it can be physically dangerous to stop completely with no medical supervision. This is why inpatient therapy that can help with withdrawal is a good choice for treating cocaine addiction. For treatment of cocaine addiction, long-term rehab is often a better choice, as 28 days doesn't give a cocaine addict enough time to recover. Often, it is recommended that users spend 90 days or more in a rehabilitation program.

Post Rehabilitation of Cocaine Addiction



Once rehab is over, it doesn't mean the addiction is gone. With cocaine use, it's important for the addict to continue to get care, and make an effort in his daily life. Staying away from people and things that trigger drug use can make a big difference, as can finding new hobbies and interests. Programs like Narcotics Anonymous and Cocaine Anonymous are also very welcoming and can help an addict to get through tough times. Recovery lasts forever, and complete sobriety is important to staying on the right path.
