At Acadiana Treatment Center, our medically monitored detoxification program provides a safe and comfortable environment. Men and women rid their bodies of cocaine, empowering themselves to achieve long-term recovery.
Importance of Detox from Cocaine
Cocaine, a drug typically snorted in white powder form, is an illegal substance that offers a brief, but intense, high. This powerful stimulant is a drug of choice for many who seek its euphoric effects. But since the drug’s high is over quickly, many who abuse the substance find themselves craving more frequent doses and/or larger amounts of the drug to achieve the desired high.
This dangerous cycle of addictive behavior can result in a tolerance that signals that a substance use disorder has taken hold. Cocaine is a very addictive substance and once a person has become dependent on the drug, he or she will most likely require professional help to overcome the addiction. Fortunately, there are programs of care available which are uniquely tailored to help the men and women who wish to overcome a dependence on cocaine.
Some of the most effective treatment paradigms offer supervised detoxification, or detox, services as part of the initial phase of care. A detox program can help a person rid his or her mind and body of cocaine and other substances of abuse prior to progressing to next steps in treatment, and allows the person to do so with the mental clarity and physical strength that can only come when sobriety is present.
Benefits of Detox from Cocaine
Even when one earnestly wants to end his or her dangerous dependence on cocaine, the process of ceasing this type of drug use can be met with intense trepidation. This is due to the fact that an individual who has become dependent on cocaine will suffer painful withdrawal symptoms upon halting his or her drug use.
Fortunately, another safer and more comfortable option exists in the form of a supervised detox program. The following briefly describes some of the many benefits to acquiring detox services:
- The process of withdrawal can be taken on safely. Given the level of supervision and monitoring that occurs when one is in detox, a person can withdrawal from prescription painkillers with minimal risk.
- Individuals who receive detox services are afforded with ongoing support from qualified staff members who can also monitor the health and wellbeing of those in this level of care.
- Men and women no longer have access to cocaine, or other substances of abuse, which can prevent relapse and further the recovery process along.
- If necessary, a person can receive certain medications that can alleviate the pain and/or discomfort associated with withdrawal. This benefit can help a person get through this portion of recovery and advance on to the therapeutic aspect of treatment with little disruption.
These are just a few of the many ways that a detox program can serve to kick-start one’s recovery journey, and allow one to begin healing with a strong, sober foundation.
Why Choose Detox from Cocaine at Acadiana Treatment Center in Louisiana
We are fortunate to live in an age when more options for substance abuse treatment exist than ever before. But sadly, some men and women who struggle with addictions of all kinds choose to not seek care to overcome the chemical dependency that is wreaking havoc on their lives. And while the road to sustained sobriety is not without challenges, there are supports available so that one need not make this arduous journey alone.
Without taking the time to access treatment for one’s cocaine dependence, one cannot hope to retain one’s health and quality of life. This is due to the fact that when a substance use disorder takes hold, one’s drug of choice soon becomes the focal point of one’s life, with all other once important priorities falling to the wayside. Eventually, one’s drug abuse will take a harsh toll on one’s physical wellbeing, mental health, and emotional regulation. Further, as one begins to value his or her substance of choice above all else, one will undoubtedly suffer discord in key relationships such as marriages and friendships, and will no longer be able to function to his or her potential at work and/or school.
