Cocaine is a powerful substance that has created immense devastation in the lives of users across the world. Also commonly referred to as coke, this stimulant induces profound feelings of euphoria, invincibility, and elation when consumed. Extreme alertness, enhanced sensitivity to stimuli, and a false sense of grandiosity can also accompany the use of cocaine. The high that is produced by the use of this drug, however, is short-lived, rarely surpassing 30 minutes. This means that individuals have to continuously consume the substance in order to maintain the pleasurable feelings they crave. As a result, tolerance and a subsequent physical dependency can quickly develop, leaving individuals trapped in a perilous addiction that seems impossible to overcome. Fortunately, with proper interventions, an addiction to cocaine can be successfully defeated.
At Duffy’s Napa Valley Rehab, we recognize the devastation that an addiction to cocaine can cause in the lives of users, as well as in the lives of those around them. Yet, we also realize that an addiction of this nature can be exceedingly difficult to overcome, which is why we are pleased to offer comprehensive, individualized programming for men and women who are ready to take the brave step towards recovering. At Duffy’s, we do not hold judgment over those who are battling an addiction to cocaine, but instead we offer them hope as we teach them the tools they need to achieve a sober future.
Helping a Loved One or Family Member Get Treatment
The realization that a friend or family member has developed an addiction to cocaine can be devastating. It can be difficult to understand why anyone would knowingly place themselves in the dangerous situation of abusing this powerful substance, and you may wonder why your loved one does not simply stop the behavior. Unfortunately, however, an addiction to cocaine is extremely powerful, and overcoming it can seem insurmountable. By placing any judgment aside, you can put yourself in a position where you can be of help to your loved one. Consider the following:
- Become educated on the signs, symptoms, and effects of cocaine abuse and addiction. Additionally, learn about the disease of addiction so that you can come to understand the uphill battle that your loved one is facing.
- Research the various types of interventions that have proven to be successful in helping individuals find freedom from the compulsion to continue using cocaine.
- Talk to your loved one. Explain the fears and concerns that you have, and provide him or her with the information you have compiled regarding possible solutions. Anticipate denial, hostility, or anger from your loved one because he or she will likely initially become defensive. Remain persistent, yet patient.
- If your loved one makes the decision to receive treatment, assist him or her in any way that you can. Work with him or her to find a treatment program that will be of most benefit to him or her, offer to accompany him or her to any appointments that are scheduled, and help take care of daily responsibilities that may otherwise prevent your loved one from receiving care.
- Once your loved one has become engaged in a treatment program, be an active part of the therapeutic process. Participate in family sessions, check-in with your loved one frequently, and participate in support groups.
- Do not give up on your loved one. The road to recovery can be a long one, often filled with setbacks along the way. Keep this in mind, and devote yourself to being an ongoing source of support and encouragement, regardless of the obstacles that may arise.
Why Consider Treatment at Duffy’s Napa Valley Rehab
The physical, mental, and social repercussions of ongoing cocaine abuse can be far-reaching and long-lasting. As is true for any addiction, the compulsion to use cocaine can hinder a person from adhering to daily responsibilities and actively engaging in social and familial obligations. The result of such can be lost friendships, marital strife, loss of child custody, and occupational failure. One’s mental health will also decline significantly, frequently causing the onset of new, or worsening of current, symptoms of mental health disorders. Additionally, one’s physical health will be irrevocably tarnished, with things such as cardiac arrhythmias, respiratory depression, deterioration of the nasal cavity, malnutrition, and muscular weakness all having been known to afflict those who continuously consume cocaine. Furthermore, the ongoing use of this dangerous drug puts individuals at an ever-present risk for experiencing an overdose, which could prove to be fatal. By receiving treatment to overcome one’s addiction, however, these detriments can be healed, overcome, or avoided altogether.
