Cocaine Addiction Treatment
  • Cocaine commonly also has street names like,
    coke, charlie, wash, rock crack or
    blow is perhaps the most dangerously addictive
    drugs in the world.
  • Cocaine is a stimulant that can be found in both
    powdered and crack form. It is a white powder
    produced from the coca plant which is found
    mostly in South America. It is usually placed
    on a smooth surface such as glass and cut up with
    a razor blade, forming thin lines or trails which
    can then be sniffed up through a makeshift straw
    commonly called "snorting" which is the most
    common form of consumption.

    commonly called "snorting" which is the most
    common form of consumption.
  • It is usually absorbed through the lining of the
    nose. Repeated snorting of the drug can cause
    damage in the membranes of the nose. The other
    form of using cocaine is injecting it. Crack
    cocaine is consumed by heating the rock in the
    pipe and inhaling the smoke. Depending on the
    method consumed, the high varies. The high
    achieved from cocaine use can last only for a
    short duration of time, which makes the person
    want to consume more quantity and more often.

  • Like any addict, a cocaine addict also chases the
    high he (or she) experiences in his first use and
    since the high doesnt last for very long he
    consumes it frequently which also increases his
    tolerance towards it. Cocaine addiction is caused
    by the changes in the brain that increase the
    neurotransmitter dopamine.
  • Cocaine is also consumed by smoking in a pipe.
    The vapours in the lung hit the brain in about
    eight seconds, producing a massive high which
    lasts for around ten minutes, after which it
    needs repeating. That is why some people can
    easily get through a large amount of crack in an
    evening.

An estimated 1.9 million people (in USA) use
cocaine each month. Research shows that adults
between the age of 18-25 report higher rates of
cocaine usage along with men abusing the drug
more than women.

There a three phases of cocaine withdrawals
  • Phase one the crash', developed rapidly by
    abruptly stopping heavy usage cocaine and is
    characterised by anxiety and irritability,
    exhaustion, increased appetite and decreased
    craving to use.
  • Phase two withdrawal is observed when the
    patient displays increased craving to use and
    poor concentration, Patients will display
    irritability and some lethargy which will go on
    for a few weeks.
  • Phase three 'extinction', displays the patient
    having irregular moments of high craving to use
    in the context of external cues.

Withdrawal management is done by medication and
eventually psycho-therapy to treat his/her
addiction. Cocaine addiction like any other
addiction is a disease and can be treated by
working on an effective recovery programme and
cooperating with therapy provided in any
treatment centre.   Hope Trust rehab provides
safe, effective and confidential treatment for
drug abuse at its international facility in
India.
