Cocaine Addiction and Withdrawal
Because cocaine is a common and prevalent party drug, it’s hard to recognize when casual use becomes dependency. When the body and brain become dependent on the stimulant, withdrawal symptoms occur when cocaine leaves the body. Withdrawal occurs in 3 stages: physical, psychological, and long-term effects. During the stages of withdrawal, the following symptoms may occur:
- Suicidal ideations
- Slower physical responses
- Mood Swings
- Night terrors
- Flu-like symptoms
- Drug cravings
The more frequently someone uses cocaine, the stronger withdrawal symptoms will be. When a person’s body is accustomed to a regular supply of the drug, a sudden absence causes severe withdrawal reactions. Physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms can be challenging to manage alone. Many people attempt to quit cocaine cold turkey. Without the support of a detox center, this can lead to release, other drug use, self-harm, and overdose. For some, withdrawal can cause hallucinations, leading to self-destructive behaviors.
Ease Cocaine Withdrawal With a Detox Program
Withdrawal symptoms can last anywhere from a few days to months. With the support of an LGBTQ drug and alcohol detox center, doctors and nurses can help ease withdrawal symptoms. Because detox’s physical and psychological side effects can cause self-harming and dangerous behavior, it’s important to detox in a safe, inclusive, supportive environment. Cocaine detox centers offer effective support to help individuals through the initial weeks of cocaine detox and withdrawal. Detox methods may include:
- Medically assisted detox
- Individual and group therapy
- 24/7 health monitoring
- Individual therapy
- Family therapy
By pairing medical and psychological support in an LGBTQ detox center, a user feels less alone and more capable of overcoming cocaine dependency.
