At our cocaine detox center in Melbourne Florida, we know cocaine is a powerful stimulant. It is derived from the leaves of the coca plant. Cocaine is highly addictive and can be snorted, smoked or injected. Cocaine gives the user a feeling of enhanced well being, euphoria, mental acuity, motor activity, and energy.
While detox services are not offered at our JourneyPure Melbourne campus, JourneyPure has several other facilities that provide detox. We will make sure you receive the highest care of medical detoxification.
Cocaine dependence can occur quickly, and have adverse effects on the individual’s life. It may become difficult to carry out regular daily responsibilities, like holding a job or looking after a family. Heavy cocaine use can also have serious physical repercussions. In addition to stroke and heart attack, the user may suffer high blood pressure, headaches, and paranoia. A cocaine overdose can be life-threatening, causing respiratory failure, brain hemorrhage, heart attack or stroke. There is no specific medication used to treat cocaine overdoses, and as a result, they can be fatal. Given the addictive nature of the substance, and the withdrawal experienced when one stops using it cold turkey, it can be a very difficult drug to quit, which is why reaching out to our cocaine detox center in Melbourne, Florida is a critical step in properly and effectively treating cocaine addiction.
Symptoms And Signs of Cocaine Withdrawal
An individual who abuses cocaine, and then attempts to stop, or stops as a result of not being able to get more drugs, will experience withdrawal symptoms. The severity of the symptoms they experience will be dependant on how much they were using, how often they were using, how long the individual was using. People with heavier use habits will experience more severe (or intense) symptoms. Withdrawing from cocaine will cause both physical and emotional symptoms:
- General discomfort
- Muscle pain
- Nerve pain
- Problems concentrating
- Anhedonia, the inability to derive pleasure from activities once enjoyed
- Suicidal thoughts or behaviors
- Slowed cognition
People attempting to detox on their own, because they are too ashamed to admit they have a problem, or to tell anyone they have a problem, are putting themselves at serious risk. A Melbourne, Florida cocaine detox center is the best option to safely navigate the physical and mental withdrawal symptoms.
What To Expect At Our Cocaine Detox In Melbourne, FL
Our Melbourne, FL cocaine detox center employs the best methods by which to get you safely through this process. Medications are an effective tool in easing the effects of withdrawal. When withdrawing from cocaine patients can develop serious depression and anxiety, which could lead to a failed detox, self-harm or suicide. Propranolol is often prescribed to treat anxiety and related psychological problems and can be helpful with this. Talk therapy is also provided to offer the patient comfort and support when, and if these issues arise. If the patient is feeling mentally strong and stable, they will be in a better position to deal with the physical effects of the detox. Anti-nausea medications, antidiarrheal medications, sleep aids, and other medications may also be prescribed by our medical team to make a patient more comfortable. Nutrition is an important component to recovery and recuperation, and our patients are provided with the necessary fuel to feed their healing and help regain their strength.
