A Better Life is in Reach
Cocaine abuse is a powerful force. People who use cocaine frequently change their lifestyle and behaviors to accommodate their addiction. Recovering from cocaine addiction often requires a multi-layered approach that addresses more than drug abuse itself. Patients often benefit from therapy that allows them to address the reasons they use cocaine, as well as distance themselves from the lifestyle they have developed as a result of their addiction.
At Chattanooga Recovery Center, we understand that cocaine abuse is a complex issue that requires effective solutions. We will work to address every aspect of your addiction so you can begin living your life in recovery. Our team is committed to your health, wellness, and happiness.
At Chattanooga Recovery Center, we walk alongside you as you work to overcome your addiction to live a sober life.
Signs of Cocaine Addiction
It can be difficult to identify cocaine addiction in yourself or a loved one. Like any drug addiction, cocaine addiction often leads to secretive behavior and significant changes in the way a person acts, interacts with others, and goes about their life. Cocaine is very expensive, so any financial difficulties in conjunction with strange behavior could be indicative of abuse.
Cocaine abuse may be evident through signs such as:
Erratic and irritable behavior
Isolation from friends and family
Avoiding responsibilities and obligations
Acting secretive, lying, or hiding things
Short-Term Effects and Long-Term Complication of Cocaine Abuse
In the short term, cocaine abuse will cause effects such as increased heart rate, trouble sleeping, restlessness, anxiety, irritability, panic, and paranoia. In the long term, cocaine abuse contributes to severely harmful effects on the brain and other internal organs. People who have been addicted to cocaine for a long time may experience psychosis, an inability to experience pleasure without using cocaine, ulcers, heart attacks, and strokes.
Cocaine, because it is so addictive, also causes severe withdrawal symptoms if use is stopped. It is crucial to receive the help of a medical professional to stop using cocaine. Not only will this be more effective than quitting “cold turkey” or attempting to taper down use on your own, it will be safer.
