Cocaine Detox

Get Admitted into a Cocaine Detox Program

Cocaine is a highly addictive substance and can be difficult to treat. Symptoms of acute, clinical depression typically manifest during the withdrawal phase of the drug, making recovery from cocaine addiction even more challenging and necessary for a those afflicted to enter a cocaine detox.

Substance abuse addiction can’t always necessarily be cured, but the science of addiction has been thoroughly studied. Treatment can be successfully managed under the care and supervision of professionals and counselors trained in research-based interventions. Polls show that users who seek professional treatment options are overwhelmingly more likely to maintain a successful recovery, versus those who do not seek professional treatment. A successful recovery from addiction is more likely to occur and stick if a user can get admitted into a cocaine detox program.

What are the common symptoms of acute withdrawal?

Withdrawal symptoms to any powerful substance are unpleasant and make it harder for the user to even embark on a recovery mission. What makes cocaine withdrawal unique is the varied and severe mood and emotional lability which can result from the abstinence of the drug. Most of the symptoms of cocaine withdrawal aren’t physical in nature, but emotional.

Acute cocaine withdrawal symptoms include the following:

  • Irritability
  • Strong cravings for the drug
  • Anxiety
  • Paranoia
  • Tremors
  • Agitation
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Cognitive impairment
  • Severe clinical depression

When do withdrawal pains peak?

Cocaine withdrawal symptoms are categorized into three distinct phases.

Phase one is the initial ‘crash’ phase and typically starts several hours after the user’s last use of cocaine. This crash phase lasts about two days until the acute withdrawal phase sets in.

The acute withdrawal phase is when the symptoms of cocaine withdrawal peak, and can last anywhere from one week and up to ten weeks. During this phase, withdrawal symptoms are at their worst. This is when symptoms of clinical depression can manifest, along with sleep disturbances, agitation, tremors, and severe cravings for the drug.

Afterward, the third and final phase of cocaine withdrawal starts. This is referred to as the extinction phase and can last up to 28 weeks. This phase is characterized by mild symptoms, such as intermittent cravings for the drug.

What are the more serious side effects of detoxing from cocaine?

While the physical side effects of cocaine detox are considered less serious than detox from harder drugs such as heroin and methamphetamine, the side effects are no less serious and should be monitored.

Cocaine withdrawal has the unfortunate side effect of inducing clinical depression in those undergoing recovery. Those suffering are at increased risk of suicide.

Also, studies show verbal fluency and cognitive impairment can occur during the withdrawal phase. The recovering individual’s decision-making abilities and communication can be negatively impacted by this phase of detoxing from cocaine addiction.

How long does it take to fully detoxify?

A full detoxification from cocaine abuse can take up to 28 weeks. A user is not considered fully detoxed until results from blood tests show no more traces of cocaine are left in their system.

How can medical detox help?

The withdrawal symptoms of cocaine addiction are varied and severe. In addition, the reasons and circumstances which have led to the addiction must be addressed in order for the individual to make a full recovery from cocaine addiction, and not replace it with other drugs, whether legal or not.

Professionals trained in research-backed, science-based intervention methods are best equipped to help and support the person in recovery. Therapists and counselors are also on-site at a medical detox center and are able to help root out the initial reasons why a person was drawn to drug use in the first place.

Also, the withdrawal symptoms from cocaine addiction are so unpleasant, they are often the reason why a user balks at attempting to stop their addiction. At a medical detox center, legal, monitored drugs can be administered to lessen the more unpleasant side-effects of withdrawal.

Since clinical depression is a common and potentially deadly side effect of cocaine withdrawal, a person in recovery can be monitored and counseled through this painful condition in a medical detox center.

Someone wishing to live a life free of cocaine addiction is more likely to recover if they seek professional help. At Windward Way, those wanting to make a full, life-long recovery from cocaine addiction are admitted into a comfortable and safe cocaine detox program.
