Why Cocaine Addiction Develops
Cocaine is a highly addictive stimulant derived from the coca plant. The white powder is smoked, snorted, or injected. In crystallized, highly concentrated form, it’s called crack cocaine. Cocaine increases dopamine levels in the brain and speeds up the nervous system. Dopamine creates feelings of joy, euphoria, and motivation. This rapid increase of dopamine can cause fast-paced, erratic behavior. Signs of cocaine use include:
- Feelings of euphoria
- Manic behavior
- Mental alertness
- Extreme sensitivity to light, sound, and touch
- Slows the need for food or sleep
- Increased heart rate
- Dilated pupils
- Increased body temperature
Cocaine can cause some people to work faster, pay better attention at work or school, and experience enhanced sexual pleasure. People may engage in more risk-taking behavior while high. Many people also find it hard to focus. Cocaine does not last long in the bloodstream. The short-lived euphoric feelings and mental alertness contribute to the drug’s addictive nature.
Our Approach to Cocaine Addiction Treatment
We offer inpatient treatment programs to address cocaine addiction. Because cocaine is highly addictive, it’s best to detox in a safe place that does not have access to drugs or alcohol. When a person begins to detox, they experience cocaine withdrawal. As cocaine leaves the bloodstream, the brain and body crave more cocaine.
This can lead to the following symptoms:
- Restless behavior
- General feeling of discomfort
- Increased hunger
- Vivid nightmares and dreams
During withdrawal, it’s very common for people to seek more cocaine or other drugs to lessen symptoms. People may engage in reckless or self-harming behavior. A residential rehab program can help prevent reuse, overdose, and endangerment to oneself or others.
At Northpoint Nebraska, we provide a safe, welcoming space for patients to begin detox and recovery. Our Omaha clinic houses 44 residents at a time. Each patient has a private room, 24/7 care, and access to our on-site amenities. We specialize in medically assisted detox and dual diagnosis treatment to help patients understand, manage, and overcome co-occurring mental health concerns and cocaine addiction.
During our four-week detox and recovery program, our residents participate in one-on-one cognitive-behavioral therapy. CBT is the leading evidence-based therapy for addiction recovery. Used for both addiction and co-occurring disorders, CBT can help our residents understand addiction triggers, cope with stress, build emotional tolerance, and change their behavior.
