A Common and Deadly Addiction Threat
Although its use has admittedly declined in recent years, cocaine addiction still remains a dominant public health threat in many areas of the United States. In 2014, over 5,000 Americans lost their lives to cocaine overdose. A drug that is increasingly downplayed and embraced as a sort of benign party drug, cocaine is a powerful and destructive central nervous system stimulant. It severely impacts the heart and brain, and has the power to render users addicted after just a very short time. Many cocaine users think they can escape dependency as they continue to abuse cocaine on a regular basis, and ultimately wind up discovering the opposite.
Cocaine is extracted from the coca plant and is usually refined into a white powder to be snorted, injected or smoked.

Signs of Cocaine Addiction
As cocaine abuse transforms into full-blown addiction, users find themselves experiencing a variety of physical and behavioral symptoms. These include but are not limited to:
- Restlessness and Irritability
- Paranoia and Anxiety
- Frequent Bloody Nose
- Dilated Pupils
- Accelerated Heart Rate
- Poor Judgment
If you or a loved one are experiencing these or any other cocaine-related symptoms, get help immediately before the problem gets worse. The longer cocaine abuse persists without treatment, the worse the withdrawal period will be. It’s common for cocaine users to feel as though they can detox on their own; however, their withdrawal symptoms wind up proving to be unbearable and they engage in a long and painful cycle of relapse.
Treatment for Cocaine Addiction
Like any other form of chemical dependency, cocaine addiction must be treated through a combination of medical detox and rehab. Patients must be medically stabilized before undergoing behavior modification, group therapy, individualized counseling and supplemental therapies to ensure a comprehensive recovery experience.
No two patients’ addictions are identical. Recovery Unplugged knows this and has developed our music-based recovery programs to help each patient access their unique voice and address the specialized factors of their recovery.
