Cocaine Addiction Treatment

Derived from the coca plant of South America, cocaine is a white, flakey powder. It’s also referred to as coke, blow, snow, flake, and nose candy. Cocaine sends intense signals to the pleasure areas of the brain to create a “high” that makes people overly talkative, excited, and confident. Once they come down from the high, however, they often experience a “crash period,” in which they eat and sleep more than usual.

Unless cocaine addiction is treated safely and effectively, it can lead to a number of long-lasting consequences such as infections, stroke, heart attack, job loss, poverty, legal issues, malnourishment, and strained relationships.

Here at Compassion Behavioral Health, we offer a wide array of treatments for those who are addicted to cocaine. We’re committed to helping you overcome your addiction so you can move forward with your life.

Cocaine Addiction FAQ

Cocaine can stay in the system of an individual for a period of time depending on several factors, including the amount used and how often it has been used. Generally, cocaine can be detected in urine, saliva, and blood tests up to 3-4 days after use, with most urine tests detecting it for about 2-3 days. Hair follicle tests can detect cocaine use for up to 90 days after the last use. However, it should be noted that cocaine metabolites can remain in the body and be detected by drug screenings for a longer period of time than the actual drug itself.
Cocaine withdrawal symptoms usually start within hours after the last use, with peak intensity occurring between 1-4 days afterward. Symptoms typically subside after 7-10 days and may persist for up to 3 weeks or longer. The length of time can vary depending on individual factors such as frequency and amount used, metabolic rate, gender, age, and any other underlying medical or mental health problems. During the withdrawal period, it is important to seek professional help and follow a medically supervised detox plan.
Treatments for cocaine addiction vary depending on individual needs and can include cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, 12-step programs, and medication-assisted treatment (MAT).
Yes, cocaine is highly addictive and can lead to physical dependence. It has been estimated that over 1 million people in the US are dependent on cocaine. Dependence occurs when an individual continues to use despite negative consequences, as well as experiences cravings and withdrawal symptoms during periods of abstinence. It is important to seek professional help for addiction treatment if you or someone you know is struggling with cocaine use. With proper treatment, recovery is possible.
Yes, it is possible to overdose on cocaine. Signs of a cocaine overdose include chest pain, difficulty breathing, confusion and agitation, nausea and vomiting, irregular heart rate or seizures. If someone is experiencing an overdose it is important to seek medical attention immediately.
Long-term use of cocaine can lead to a number of mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, and paranoia. It is important to seek professional help if these symptoms persist and interfere with daily functioning. Treatment for co-occurring disorders such as addiction and mental health problems often involves integrated care that addresses both conditions concurrently.
