The First Step in Treating Cocaine Addiction
Although it may have diminished in popularity behind drugs like heroin and prescription opioids, cocaine addiction is still alive and well in many areas of the United States, including right here in South Florida. Cocaine is a powerful central nervous system stimulant that creates serious, long-term and potentially permanent changes to a users’ brain function. It also poses significant danger to the heart and other major organs. Cocaine detox helps patients rid their bodies of cocaine-related chemicals so they have the energy and mental clarity to pursue the next stages of their treatment. Recovery Unplugged offers compassionate and quality cocaine detox to adult men and women who need help. Call us today at (954) 703-1975.
Without Professional Cocaine Detox
It’s common for casual cocaine users to let denial get the better of them and convince themselves that they can detox from cocaine on their own. Inevitably they wind up succumbing to their withdrawal symptoms and start using again. After enough cycles of relapse, abuse turns to addiction and the problems become much more serious.
Cocaine detox becomes necessary the moment a user starts to experience moderate to severe withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms can be incredibly difficult to manage on one’s own, and can lead to serious long-term problems. Don’t let denial get in the way of your recovery. Get the professional help you need.
Each patient’s cocaine withdrawal symptoms will vary based on how long and how much they’ve been abusing the drug.
Some of the more common cocaine withdrawal symptoms include:
- Restlessness and Irritability
- Extreme Changes in Disposition
- Aggression and Depressed Mood
- Fatigue and Lethargy
- Moderate to Severe Muscle and Joint Pain
- Increased Appetite
More severe symptoms can include respiratory problems, seizures and even coma. Cocaine detox is not something a user should attempt without help.
