Outpatient Treatment for Cocaine Addiction
Cocaine addiction has extensive physical and emotional effects. Overcoming addiction to this drug is challenging. Patients who want to quit using cocaine need medical supervision and the support of specialized counselors to successfully turn their lives around.
What is Cocaine Addiction?
Cocaine is an illicit drug that many people begin for recreational reasons, but the drug quickly changes the brain so that the person needs the drug to feel normal. This leads to needing more cocaine to feel the effects. In addition to the addiction itself, people who abuse cocaine become enmeshed in a cycle of seeking and acquiring the drug, often at the cost of important relationships, work, and school. Soon the drug overtakes their lives while slowly destroying their bodies.
Signs of Cocaine Addiction
Cocaine affects each person differently, and a certain person may have a higher tolerance for the drug. Common signs of cocaine use and addiction are:
- Stealing and selling personal items to get the money to buy cocaine
- Financial problems
- Declining performance at school or work
- Loss of interest in activities that were once very important
- Being isolated from family and friends or having a new group of friends
- Loss of interest in eating
- Weight loss for no apparent reason
- Legal issues related to drug use and cocaine addiction
- Periods of unexplained, high levels of energy
- Participating in risky behaviors
What is Cocaine Outpatient Treatment?
Cocaine is a powerful drug that affects the heart and brain. The potency of the drug means that even occasional use can be life threatening. With chronic use, the damaging effects increase while the user relies on higher amounts of the drug to get high. Cocaine rehab is the safest and most effective way to overcome a cocaine addiction. North Coast Recovery offers a medically therapeutic option that is based on practical evidence. Our cocaine outpatient treatment program has helped people restart their lives without the harmful, emotional and physical effects of cocaine.
North Coast Recovery not only helps the patient stop using cocaine, but we also address the reason that the person uses and abuses cocaine. In most cases, cocaine is used as a coping mechanism. By helping the patient address the underlying problems, cocaine no longer serves the same role in the person’s life.
