Cocaine Treatment Center

Cocaine is one of the most abused narcotics in the world. Peer pressure, curiosity and the influence of alcohol are common reasons why people try it. Since the high from cocaine can last 15 to 30 minutes, individuals will often binge the substance. This means a person will take the drug repeatedly at increasingly higher doses, which sometimes leads to addiction.

Choosing to receive treatment for cocaine addiction is the first step toward recovery. At Transformations By The Gulf, we offer innovative and tailored treatment options that are designed for the mind, body and spirit.

What Is Cocaine Addiction?

Common delivery methods of cocaine include snorting, smoking and injecting. The drug can be addictive because of the changes it creates in the brain after repeated use.

As a central nervous system stimulant, cocaine produces short-term euphoria and a temporary energy boost. Once the high wears off, however, the user will likely feel irritable, restless and tired. These negative effects could encourage the regular use of cocaine, since it temporarily mitigates the symptoms of withdrawal. Addiction may also occur because the brain can build up a tolerance, requiring higher amounts of the drug to produce the same euphoric result.

Short-term effects of cocaine use include:

  • Mental alertness
  • Increased energy
  • Hypersensitivity to sound, sight and touch
  • Paranoia
  • High blood pressure

Long-term use has many possible health consequences, such as:

  • Seizures
  • Cardiac arrest
  • Weight loss
  • Chronic fatigue
  • HIV and hepatitis
  • Death
