Cocaine is one of most highly addictive substance known today. A cocaine addiction causes an imbalance in the user’s brain. When cocaine is withdrawn users experience a number of painful withdrawal symptoms. This pain is accompanied with intense physical cravings for the drug. Thus withdrawal is difficult to succeed at without professional intervention. Cocaine makes users feel energetic and if great quantities of the drug are consumed users experience violent tremors. As users increase cocaine use a tolerance to the drug builds up. An even greater quantity of cocaine is needed to achieve the desired ‘high’.
What makes Cocaine so addictive?
As stated, cocaine is a very potent drug that increases the levels of dopamine in your body. Dopamine is the chemical in your brain that gives you a sense of wellbeing. After repeated use, your body gets used to the heightened levels of dopamine and you will feel depressed if you do not use cocaine. Your body starts giving you hints that your dopamine levels need to be increased, and before you know it, you cannot function without cocaine anymore.

Post detoxification therapy
Since cocaine addiction is more psychological than physical in nature, detoxification alone will not be sufficient to defeat your addiction alone during cocaine rehab treatment. Our cocaine rehab programme incorporates several therapies and counselling sessions arming you with powerful coping strategies needed to prevent relapse. Therapy comes in the form of group therapy and individual therapy. Cognitive behaviour therapy is employed throughout. During group therapy sessions you take part in small group discussions. Individual therapy is a form of one-on-one therapy conducted in the presence of a qualified psychiatrist or psychologist.
When your cocaine rehab programme draws to a close we set in place a relapse prevention plan. We work closely with local communities in your area. You are encouraged to attend your local Cocaine Anonymous or SMART Recovery group in your area.
