Cocaine also tends to be very addictive. Addiction has killed many people worldwide, and it will continue to do so.

What Makes Cocaine Dangerous For Your Body?

For many people, it seems like a harmless drug that you can casually enjoy on a night out. However, what cocaine can do to your body is often not mentioned.

The brain can become damaged from cocaine. The effects of cocaine will reach their peak in 30 minutes, and the total time the effects of cocaine are active is about one hour.

However, after that hour, the feelings of happiness, self-appreciation and total euphoria will completely flip towards the other side of emotions.

The active substance in cocaine affects a part of your brain that produces dopamine and serotonin. These are the two chemicals in your brain that regulate your mood and happiness. After using the drug, your brain will produce more serotonin and dopamine.

The drug can boost the dopamine in serotonin – and in return, your body will stop the production of dopamine for a short period. This leads to a chemical imbalance in your brain, causing depression in the long term. Still, think it’s a harmless drug? If you struggle to get clean, contact our admissions team and start your cocaine rehab program.

The nose is another part of your body that will feel the effects of prolonged cocaine use.

Cocaine is often snorted. Many cases of perforated septum have been reported due to extensive cocaine usage. Repeated drug use can cause a hole to appear in your septum. Trouble breathing and blood discharge are often named the main symptoms.

For many recreational users, the feeling that your heart is beating too fast is relatable. The fast beating of your heart can lead to narrowed blood vessels and thicker heart muscles – those are often the result of repeated cocaine use and can lead to heart attacks. This is another reason you should attend our cocaine rehab program.

How Does Cocaine Rehab Work?

Have you realised that Cocaine Rehab is the right choice to get the help you need to stay clean? We welcome you to join our Cocaine Rehab program, available in our UK based centre in Blackpool.

We have helped cocaine users stop taking the drug in the local area and from all over the United Kingdom. We can help you get clean with our 28 day-programme, adjusted to your wants and needs. The first step is often detox; detoxification is the process of clearing your body from toxins like cocaine.

The withdrawal symptoms can be pretty intense as cocaine is a hard drug to detox from. But it is generally seen as less hard to withdraw from than alcohol and heroin, and it is also seen as less dangerous than the other two drugs. Often reported withdrawal symptoms are a lack of appetite, nausea, and severe mood problems.

However, these are still issues that could lead to lasting damage. That is why you need to complete rehab at an inpatient facility. We have medical specialists who can help you 24/7 if your health deteriorates.

Our Cocaine Rehab service will also look at the source of your addiction. The post-detox service is done via outpatient treatment and will help you find ways to deal with stress without reverting to damaging habits.

This is achieved through different therapies, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy CBT, which is designed to understand the behaviour and thoughts that could be directly linked to your addiction.

Once we have an idea of what those thoughts are, we can then start to break them down and discuss what the best action is when you are faced with these thoughts and behavioural patterns again.

CBT is used to treat many mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, and substance. Due to the strong links between drug abuse and mental health, we believe the use of phycological therapy can play a big part in healing your drug addiction.

Along with CBT, you will also participate in group therapy sessions where you will talk about your addiction recovery with people going through the same experience.

At first, this can seem like a difficult task; getting up and speaking to an audience of people is never easy, but talking about your recovery experience to people who are taking part in the same journey can be a great help as it lets you know that you are not alone.

Cocaine use Statistics

According to the 2019-2020 Government Statistics on drug use within the United Kingdom, there was an increase in the number of people entering crack cocaine treatment such as cocaine rehab. This was inclusive of those who are using crack cocaine along with other opiates which was an increase to 25,043 from 24,363 as well as a rise for those who weren’t using other opiates alongside their crack cocaine use which increased to 4651 from 4535.

Unfortunately, the UK’s epidemic of cocaine use has increased over the last 5 consecutive years and because of this, the number of people attending cocaine rehab and cocaine addiction treatment has increased by over a third since 2013. According to the UK government, this is a direct result of cocaine supply chain changes which have resulted in a lower price to the consumer as well as improved purity. The UK government also reported that for those in alcohol and drug rehabilitation, 12% (which was the third largest)

Exposing the Dangers of Cocaine

The danger that cocaine possesses to the individual is accepted by the general consensus. And while some still believe it to be a party drug of rock stars with minimal harm, there is a plethora of research recording the dangers of this highly addictive substance. We have listed a few studies which look at the dangers of cocaine, and why it caused a spike in cocaine rehab usage.

Cardiovascular issues:

According to the Trends in Cardiovascular Medicine Journal cocaine use can result in mechanisms of cardiotoxicity which includes mitochondrial damage blockages of potassium and sodium channels, excitation-contraction coupling troubles along with many others

Heart issues:

AHA journals report that cocaine has the ability to lessen coronary blood flow and coronary calibre as well as provoke electrical malfunctions in the heart as well as increase the blood pressure and heart rate.

Frequently Asked Questions

Choosing the right rehab treatment provider can be a life-changing decision; here are some of the most common questions we are asked pre-admission.

What Is The Difference Between Cocaine Rehab And A Detox? 

Detoxification is only a part of the cocaine rehab process. The goal of rehab is to become clean and drug-free, and detox is the first step towards a better life. During detox, you remove all drugs out of your body by abstaining from it.

Does Outpatient Cocaine Rehab Work? 

We advise strongly against full-outpatient rehab in the case of heavy cocaine addiction. Often addicts need to be taken into protection against their own good. Addiction often alters your ability to make the right decisions, and if you have an urge to use cocaine – it’ll be hard to say no without the right guidance.

How Long Does Cocaine Rehab Take?

We offer inpatient rehab services for from 7 to 28 days – and in some cases even longer, but after care could take up to year. From regular visiting for therapy sessions, to reiki and other holistic therapies: we offer a complete package.

Why Is Cocaine So Addictive?

Cocaine increases dopamine levels in the body which is chemical in the brain which stimulates happiness and wellbeing. After consistent use of the drug your body starts to get become reliant on the increased dopamine levels that cocaine produces. This causes a chemical imbalance that can only be restored after taking the drug meaning that while you are not taking the drug your body will view your dopamine levels as low which can affect your wellbeing and happiness and will most likely lead to a feeling of depression which will only subside after taking cocaine.

Are There Any Support Groups I Can Attend After Leaving The Centre?

Yes, although we do not offer support groups as part of our aftercare packages, there are still plenty of options out there. The most popular support groups for Cocaine users is Narcotics and Cocaine Anonymous meeting groups which are held all over the UK.
