Cocaine Addiction

At La Jolla Recovery cocaine rehab, we provide the appropriate detoxification and continued rehab process to attend phsycial withdrawal and reintegration in a calm, safe and innovative manner. Let San Diego, California, welcome you to a transformational and science based approach to cocaine detox.

Cocaine is such a potent stimulant that it changes the nature of the brain’s chemical processes down to the receptors. Co-occurring disorders are common when detoxing or coming off of cocaine binges or use, an instability that manifests in psychological symptoms, which are both physical and emotionally very uncomfortable.

Substance use disorders are not a moral problem; we understand their physical foundation and have the tools and therapies to sustain cocaine addiction recovery. La Jolla Recovery’s cocaine addiction treatment rehab can address these detoxification problems clinically and medically. Our integrative and evidence-based approach makes it possible for the symptoms of cocaine craving to be reduced at detox, with the correct medical and clinical supervision down to outpatient rehab where the right social setting and attention can be given to come off or withdraw while educating the client of what is happening with the right tools to attend them.

Cocaine Use

The pleasure from cocaine use can be very significant, most initially. As the use of cocaine increases or binges occur, the flooding or chemical presence of cocaine in the brain and its neuron receptors begin to compensate by having more receptors to prepare or find a balance between the excessive stimuli and the brain’s capacity to synthesize cocaine. This vicious cycle leads to more users creating the previous effects and a physiological need for homeostasis or chemical regulation. This cycle of cocaine use or dependence is known as cocaine addiction.

What is Cocaine?

Cocaine is a potent stimulant drug that can be addictive. Extracted, refined, and purified from the Southern American plant leaves called coca stimulates the adrenergic or nervous system. Although the plant has been ingested for thousands of years, the chemical we know as cocaine is a synthesized version of the extract called cocaine hydrochloride. As a chemical, cocaine was used medically as an anesthetic to block pain. Commercially it was also utilized as an extract in tonics and beverages such as Cola. Unfortunately, when used excessively, it can alter brain structure and impact a person’s life afterward, requiring professional attention. Combined with other drugs, such as alcohol and heroin, it may intensify the physiological impact.

Cocaine Effects

Cocaine abuse can be damaging to physiological processes and brain chemistry. Some of these include serotonin and dopamine secretion as well as its receptors. However, there is hope, and change with a desire to rehabilitate can occur. Because of the nature of plasticity, or brain regeneration under the right environment and stimuli, having the proper attention at detox throughout rehab can be ameliorated. From higher anxiety levels than average to disruption of sleep-wake patterns, let La Jolla Recovery attend to your cocaine detoxification needs, provide the proper medical attention for physical withdrawal, and ultimately have the ideal educational peer and therapeutic tools to do so. If you ever wonder how to tell of a friend or a loved one who has a problem or addiction to cocaine, usually elevated moods or changes in behavioral issues might be a sign. The best way is to have a calm conversation without pointing fingers and coming from a place of care. If you have any questions on how to begin the journey toward cocaine recovery, feel free to contact us.

Facts About Cocaine

Cocaine is distinct from its medical counterpart, including its white, crystal, refined, and powder nature. Cocaine is now a scheduled two-drug, meaning a doctor can administer it for legitimate medical reasons. Some of these uses are local anesthesia for the eye, throat, and ear, among other procedures. Cocaine street names include blow, coke, c, powder, and coca. Street dealers are known to dilute or cut cocaine with non-stimulant ingredients. To increase economic value, these elements include baking soda, flour, corn starch, and talcum. Other stimulating chemicals added to cut are amphetamines and benzos. Finally, some users combine cocaine with heroin, known as a speedball which is highly addictive. Mixing cocaine with alcohol is typical.
