Cocaine Addiction Treatment in Florida


Learn how to reclaim your life at Transformations by the Gulf Alcohol and Drug Rehab where your cocaine addiction treatment is customized for you to succeed.

Let's Talk

Cocaine Addiction Treatment is possible at Transformations by the Gulf. Cocaine is a stimulant derived from leaves of the coca plant. It’s usually sold in a white powder or synthesized into crystals or rocks as “crack.” Snorting, smoking, or injecting the drug elicits a brief euphoric, energizing, and exhilarating feeling that lasts a few minutes to an hour, followed by an unpleasant comedown.

Although cocaine remains legal for medicinal use, its highly addictive potential limits its use as an anesthetic, and today it’s mostly used illicitly. The drug is classified as a Schedule II substance by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). Despite its high potential for misuse, the drug remains popular.
Individuals use cocaine in a variety of ways, including:

Inhaled, as a powder form, through the nostrils (snorted).
Taken orally (by swallowing or rubbing it on the gums).
Smoked, in a crystalized “crack” or freebase form, wherein the individual inhales the vapor or smoke into the lungs.
Dissolved in water and injected into a vein.
Smoking crack or injecting cocaine yields the most rapid and intense high.

Signs & Symptoms of Addiction


It’s important to find the right cocaine addiction treatment for you. As a stimulant, cocaine enhances activity in the body’s central and peripheral nervous system. The effects of its use appear almost immediately and may include:

  • Euphoria, or a rush of pleasure or happiness.
  • Mental alertness.
  • Extreme energy.
  • Talkativeness.

The potential adverse effects of cocaine use can include:

  • Dilated pupils.
  • Irritability and restlessness.
  • Anxiety.
  • Panic and paranoia.
  • Constricted blood vessels.
  • Fast or irregular heartbeat.
  • Nausea.
  • Raised body temperature and blood pressure.
  • Tremors and muscle twitches.

The high and short-term effects are temporary, which may lead to repeat dosing over several hours or even days. Repeat use in this manner is typically followed by a “crash,” which leaves the user feeling fatigued, anxious, and depressed.

The success of a person’s recovery depends on the level of personalized treatment provided. When we say our treatment is individualized, we mean that we craft a program tailored to address the client’s unique physical, mental and emotional needs.

In the client’s first 24 hours with us, we’ll evaluate their current state and work to understand what challenges they need to overcome. They’ll also have an initial session with our doctor and meet with one of our licensed mental health professionals.

After the initial evaluations, we’ll design a treatment plan with the sole mission of helping the client overcome and heal from addiction. Their program will focus on things such as:

  • Addressing and identifying root causes of addiction.
  • Creating a support system.
