Cocaine Drug Addiction
Cocaine Addiction Treatment
Cocaine is one of the most abused drugs in the United States. This is an epidemic that doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon. There are hundreds of thousands of people who are losing their lives to this drug. It is highly addictive and causes physical and mental health issues.
If you or someone you know has an addiction to cocaine, our Transformations Care team wants to hear from you. We know our team can provide you with the therapies, resources and rehab services needed to help you overcome cocaine drug addiction.
Levels of Care for Cocaine Addiction Treatment
Do you or a loved one have a cocaine addiction or an addiction to another drug? If so, it is time to seek out treatment. Here at Transformations Care, we will help and guide you through all levels of care and treatment. Your treatments may consist of detox, inpatient treatment, outpatient treatment, behavioral therapies and much more.
The medical detox program helps you to get clean from drugs. The residential treatment gives you a secure, safe place where you can receive 24/7 supervision while overcoming cocaine addiction. Partial hospitalization still allows you to receive hours of care each day, but you can go back to a sober living community when you are done each day. There is also intensive outpatient treatment which allows you to have a lot of support, just not quite as much as with partial hospitalization. Last, but not least, there is outpatient treatment.
Transformations Care Has Various Levels of Care Including:
- Partial hospitalization
- Intensive outpatient
Addiction Treatment Process and Therapy Options
In order to start treating this type of addiction, the person who struggles with cocaine abuse needs to attend a detoxification program. Generally, the process of detox with this drug is about 1 week. However, recovery doesn’t end after detoxing is over. Once that process is finished, you should attend an inpatient or outpatient treatment program. These programs can be anywhere between 28 days to a couple of years.
There are many therapies that have been approved and proven to treat cocaine addiction, as well. Some of these options include:
- Motivational interviewing
- Contingency management
- Community reinforcement
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy
If you are ready to start receiving any of these treatment options, don’t hesitate to reach out to our Transformations Care team today.
Recognizing Cocaine Drug Addiction
Do you suspect that someone you care about is abusing cocaine? If you aren’t sure, but you have your suspicions, there are some things you should look for.
The first thing is to listen to what your loved one or friend is talking about. If you hear them say things like rock, coke or snow, they could be talking about cocaine as these are street names for the drug.
You should also look out for drug side effects including, but not limited to, the following:
- Talking a lot more and a lot faster than usual
- Having a lot of energy
- Dilated pupils
- More mentally alert than usual
- Staying awake for a long time
- Decreased appetite
- Light or touch sensitivity
- Muscle twitches
In addition to these effects, if your loved one or friend is coming down off the drug, they may experience anxiety, depression or fatigue until they use the drug again.
If you notice these things in your loved one or friend, you may want to hold an intervention to confront them about their drug abuse. If they admit to having a cocaine addiction, you should have them reach out to Transformations Care today.
Cocaine Abuse Dangers
If someone in your life, whether it be you or someone else, continues to abuse cocaine, there are going to be some dangers and health risks.

- Gastrointestinal tract issues such as tears or ulcers
- Kidney and liver damage
- Neglecting healthy eating habits
- Impulse inhibition
- Losing one’s memory
- Severely high blood pressure
- Risk to fetus
- Nasal cavity damage
- Regular nosebleeds
- Losing sense of smell
- Lung issues (fever, labored breathing, coughing blood, respiratory failure)

Overdosing on Cocaine
There are thousands of people who pass away every year from overdosing on cocaine. The minute someone uses this drug, they have a risk of overdosing on it. Unfortunately, most overdoses do lead to strokes, cardiac arrest, heart attacks or seizures. The truth is that many people don’t survive it. However, if you see someone who is overdosing on drugs, you should dial 9-1-1 right away. Don’t worry about what is going to happen in the future. The sooner you can get the person treatment, the better chance they have of living through the overdose. If first responders can show up in time, they can do their best to help your loved one or friend.
