Cocaine Addiction FAQs

What is Cocaine?

Cocaine is a derivative of coca leaves that stimulates users, making them feel energetic, talkative and invincible. Producing a short-lived yet powerfully euphoric effect due to its reuptake inhibitor abilities, cocaine is highly addictive and is the cause of more than 5,000 deaths per year. Cocaine also significantly raises blood pressure and heart rate, which can lead to stroke and cardiac arrest. As a powerfully disinhibiting drug, cocaine is known to fuel dangerous behaviors resulting in homicides and suicides as well.

What is a Cocaine Addiction?

Clinical addiction research conducted over the past 30 years has discovered that cocaine addiction is a disease heavily influenced by psychological, biological and social components. Unfortunately, the myth that cocaine addicts can stop using whenever they wish continues to obscure the truth about cocaine addiction and its horrific effects on a person’s physical and emotional health.

When someone is addicted to cocaine, they may:

  • Snort, smoke or inject cocaine intravenously
  • Appear agitated, hyperactive and unnaturally optimistic
  • Engage in compulsive behaviors, or disinhibition, with little regard for consequences
  • Blame sinus problems on chronic runny noses, nosebleeds and red, watery eyes
  • Exhibit involuntary muscle tics and spasms
  • Act irritable, unpredictable and possibly violent when suffering cocaine withdrawals

Just like other substance abusers, cocaine addicts will also steal, gamble, lie and sell possessions to obtain money to buy cocaine. In fact, cocaine addicts who experience homelessness, incarceration or even physical harm may still refuse to acknowledge their addiction and blame their problems on other people.

Denial is Part of the Addiction

A cocaine addict refuses to think about how their addiction is affecting loved ones. They cannot or do not want to understand the impact of their addiction on themselves and others because of cocaine’s ability to disrupt normal thinking patterns. Failing to acknowledge the consequences of their addiction is a way for cocaine addicts to avoid confronting repressed feelings of guilt, shame and desperation.

Detoxification is the First Step Towards Sobriety

All substance abusers fear the detoxification stage of a recovery program so much that it is often the one thing that prevents them from taking that first step towards leading a sober life. If you are searching for a medically supervised cocaine addiction treatment program in Bakersfield, Synergy Recovery Services can help.

Medications that Help Cocaine Addicts Through Detoxification

Gabapentin and Vigabatrin are prescription anticonvulsant/anti-epileptic drugs that also reduce cocaine cravings by increasing levels of GABA in the brain. GABA is a neurotransmitter that, when increased, has a calming, anti-anxiety effect on cocaine users.

Baclofen is a prescription muscle relaxant that curbs cravings and helps reduce cocaine use in heavy users.

A drug frequently given to recovering alcoholics called Antabuse may also help cocaine addicts through detoxification and recovery. By increasing blood levels of acetaldehyde, Antabuse produces unpleasant side effects when a cocaine addicts uses cocaine while taking Antabuse.

Why Detoxing Alone is Dangerous

Detoxification begins when the cocaine addict stops using cocaine and the brain is no longer flooded with dopamine and other neurotransmitters associated with addiction. Signs of withdrawal typically begin within 12 to 24 hours of abstaining from cocaine but could begin earlier for a long-term cocaine addiction.

People who attempt self-detoxification without medical supervision are in danger of developing life-threatening health issues involving the heart, liver, nervous system and brain. In addition, the severity of symptoms, such as nausea and vomiting, fever, overwhelming anxiety, depression and excruciating joint pain, nearly always results in the person turning to cocaine to relieve severe withdrawal symptoms.

Even before symptoms start making the person feel ill, they usually experience strong cravings for another cocaine “fix” due to the brain demanding the release of those “feel-good” neurotransmitters.

Dual Diagnosis

Many cocaine addicts harbor co-occurring psychological issues that have not been diagnosed. If we discover that you or a loved one with an addiction to cocaine is suffering a serious mental disorder such as bipolar disorder, schizoaffective disorder or PSTD, we will give you a dual diagnosis and refer you to mental health professionals accordingly. Treating underlying psychological disturbances is essential to successfully treating an addiction and minimizing the risk of relapse.

Physiological Problems Caused by a Cocaine Addiction

Cocaine addiction produces neuroadaptive changes in multiple brain systems, such as the frontostriatal system. A collection of neural pathways connecting the frontal lobes and basal ganglia, the brain’s frontostriatal system is vital to mediating behavioral, cognitive and motor functioning.

This system is also highly dependent on dopamine, serotonin and norepinephrine for working properly. Since cocaine disrupts the normal flow of these three neurotransmitters, physiological changes emerge in the brain and body of a cocaine addict that are destructive to the user’s mental and physical health.

Health problems commonly suffered by cocaine addicts include:

  • Bleeding ulcers
  • Strokes, arrhythmia and heart attacks
  • Convulsions/seizures/coma
  • Heart attacks and strokes
  • Chronic nosebleeds/deterioration of the sinus passages
  • Gangrene of the intestines caused by lack of blood flow
  • Weight loss/malnutrition/anorexia
  • Blood infections/HIV/AIDS/hepatitis

Accepting and Coping With a Cocaine Addiction

Radical acceptance may sound like a self-defeating method of coping with inner conflict. However, radical acceptance of an addiction means accepting something for what it is instead of struggling to make it something it isn’t. In other words, patients participating in our cocaine addiction rehab in Bakersfield, CA learn not to jump to conclusions about people and situations that cause them stress. They also learn how to understand that they do not have to permit a particularly upsetting situation to continue.

Refusing to accept reality is one of the reasons why cocaine addicts find it so hard to defeat negative thought patterns and feelings that lead to self-destructive behaviors. Acceptance techniques combine mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness and emotion regulation skills to help our clients grasp the power that radical acceptance has to enrich their lives.

Moreover, learning that radical acceptance is not a prescription for passive behavior encourages our clients to assert themselves in a logical, confident manner so they can begin changing their lives by taking control of their emotions and their behaviors.

How Much Does It Cost to Enter a Cocaine Addiction Treatment Program?

The cost of Synergy Recovery Services cocaine addiction treatment center in Bakersfield, CA, varies according to factors defining the treatment program. These factors involve the type of insurance coverage you have, such as partial or full, length of your outpatient treatment program and other variables we will discuss with you prior to your entering our outpatient cocaine addiction treatment.

Get Professional, Compassionate Help for Cocaine Addiction

Finding the appropriate cocaine addiction program is the first course of action to take when addiction is destroying your life. Cocaine addicts need to participate in counseling as well as take medication that regulates neurotransmitter levels in the brain.

Regardless of the stigma associated with any kind of addiction or mental disorder, those suffering from these debilitating diseases should not feel like addiction is their fault. It is a combination of factors beyond the control of the addict that can be successfully controlled by participating in our Bakersfield, CA cocaine addiction treatment program at Synergy Recovery Services.

Getting Treatment for a Cocaine Addiction

Overcoming a cocaine addiction demands the addict entering an intensive rehabilitation program that provides cognitive behavioral therapy, group therapy, life skills training and learning relapse prevention techniques. Addiction therapists at Synergy Recovery Services are trained to help cocaine addicts begin to take responsibility for their actions by learning how to manage powerfully negative emotions so that relapse does not occur.

Outpatient Cocaine Addiction Treatment in Bakersfield, CA

Synergy Recovery Services’ addiction therapists help cocaine addicts overcome their addiction by teaching them:

  • How to take control of cognitive and emotional processes by identifying triggers that promote distorted thought patterns often leading to making irrational decisions
  • How to apply appropriate coping skills that can stop unproductive and undesirable thoughts, emotions and behaviors
  • How to accept reality for what it is while remaining committed to changing maladaptive behaviors

Patients of Synergy Recovery Services’ cocaine addiction treatment program in Bakersfield, CA also learn about emotion regulation, or the ability to prevent the escalation of negative feelings by understanding the biological relationship among thoughts, physical sensations, emotions and behaviors.

Patients are taught that lack of sleep, lack of eating proper foods, abusing drugs and/or medications and not getting enough exercise may exacerbate existing psychological issues. By the end of their recovery program, our patients are making a conscious effort to incorporate positive, life-affirming experiences in their daily lives that directly support a sober lifestyle.
