Focused Treatment
Medically Assisted Cocaine Detox

Are you or someone you love considering a cocaine detox? At Guardian Recovery Network we understand how difficult cocaine withdrawal can be. Someone coming off cocaine can experience extreme anxiety, depression, irritability, rage, fatigue, temperature irregularities and overwhelming cravings. These symptoms make quitting hard even when someone desperately wants to stop. An individual experiencing withdrawal will often turn back to cocaine just to make the pain stop. The key to overcoming this obstacle is a medically supervised detox where withdrawal symptoms can be eased with medication in a comfortable, supportive, homestyle environment.

Beyond physical stabilization, detox is also an important time to plan a path forward in recovery. At Guardian Recovery Network we first provide a safe, pain-free detox, then we get to work putting together a plan for long-term sobriety. We perform an in-depth initial evaluation and tailor a treatment plan unique to each client’s needs and recovery goals. We begin therapy and offer holistic treatments like acupuncture, meditation and yoga. Every client leaves with a firm foundation for ongoing recovery.

The Effects of Cocaine

Cocaine is an illicit and highly addictive stimulant drug, one that is most commonly used for recreational purposes. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, there were an estimated 1.5 million past month cocaine users over the age of 12 in 2014. Rates of cocaine abuse and dependence throughout the U.S. have remained relatively stable since 2009. Men and women between the ages of 18 and 25 have the highest rates of cocaine use, though this drug also affects members of every demographic.

Cocaine use has significant short and long-term effects. Taking small amounts of cocaine makes the user feel alert, awake, more sociable and confident. He or she might experience a reduced appetite and reduced need for sleep. The long-term effects of chronic cocaine use can be severe, and might include severe anxiety, panic attacks, reduced blood flow to the gastrointestinal tract, significant weight loss, malnourishment, permanent damage to the heart and cardiovascular system, increased risk of stroke, permanent damage to the nasal passageways and a sharp decline in cognitive functioning.

If you or someone you love has been suffering at the hands of a cocaine abuse disorder, Guardian Recovery Network is available to help. We are dedicated to providing the most comprehensive and individualized program of medically monitored detox available. To learn more about our programs, contact us today.

Cocaine Addiction
Facts & Statistics

Habitual cocaine use can rapidly lead to physical and psychological dependence, and when dependence develops the risk of serious health-related complications and overdose-related death increase dramatically. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, cocaine-involved death rates rose by 52.4 percent from 2015 to 2016. Of all the drug overdose deaths that occurred in 2017, 19.8 percent (13,942) involved cocaine. While the majority of people use cocaine nasally, roughly a quarter of all cocaine users smoke crack cocaine. While there are no significant pharmacological differences between powdered cocaine and crack cocaine (meaning that the two drugs produce similar effects), crack cocaine is generally cheaper, more addictive and faster acting. Because the effects are so short-lived, many crack cocaine users take more of the drug immediately as the effects begin wearing off in order to prolong the high. This can lead to the rapid development of physical and psychological dependence.

Cocaine Addiction
Signs & Symptoms

The symptoms of cocaine abuse and addiction include: 

  • Using more cocaine than intended for a longer period of time than intended
  • Continuing to use cocaine despite negative consequences linked to use
  • Losing interest in social and recreational activities that were previously enjoyed
  • Failing to fulfill personal obligations and take care of responsibilities
  • An increase in risk-taking behaviors, like combining cocaine with alcohol or other drugs or driving while under the influence
  • Isolating from friends and family members
  • Chronic runny nose or nose bleeds (common with powdered cocaine abuse)
  • Attempting to cut back or quit entirely and being unable to do so
  • Developing a physical tolerance over time
  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms — both physical and psychological — when cocaine use is suddenly stopped

Cocaine Withdrawal
Signs & Symptoms

Cocaine withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Restlessness
  • Agitation and irritability
  • Extreme fatigue
  • General feelings of physical discomfort
  • An inability to fall asleep and stay asleep
  • Vivid nightmares
  • Intense cravings for cocaine
  • Increased appetite, which can lead to temporary weight gain
  • Depression (which can lead to suicidal ideation when left untreated)

The more severe psychological symptoms associated with cocaine withdrawal must be thoroughly addressed in a medical detox facility, and overseen by a licensed psychiatrist. The symptoms of cocaine withdrawal generally begin within the first 12 hours of the last use and last for between one and two weeks depending on the severity of the substance abuse disorder.

Is Cocaine Detox Necessary?

Some people mistakenly believe that because stimulant withdrawal is not always life-threatening, detoxing from cocaine can be done without professional help — cold turkey, in an at-home setting. The truth is that medical detox is most often a necessary first step on the road to recovery. There are several reasons why detox is important, including:

  • The psychological drug cravings that go hand-in-hand with cocaine withdrawal can easily lead to relapse when left untreated.
  • Cocaine withdrawal can lead to serious — sometimes permanent — health-related consequences when not closely overseen.
  • There is no reason to sit through the physical and psychological discomfort that is associated with cocaine withdrawal — medical detox facilities focus on client comfort and on a pain-free withdrawal.
  • Medical detox centers like Guardian Recovery Network offer additional services that often mean the difference between relapse and long-term recovery.
  • We offer rehab placement services and aftercare planning so that there is no gap between medical detox and inpatient addiction treatment.
  • We offer family-oriented services so that the loved ones of our clients can begin their journeys of healing as well.

Cocaine Detox Treatment Methods

At Guardian Recovery Network we employ a combination of effective detoxification techniques in order to provide the most integrated care available. While there are currently no medications approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of cocaine withdrawal, we generally utilize over-the-counter pain relievers and safe, non-addictive sleep aids to treat general feelings of physical discomfort and insomnia. Because the psychological symptoms of cocaine withdrawal are generally more severe and disruptive than the physical symptoms, we offer psychiatric services and antipsychotic medications whenever necessary. Many of our clients who have struggled with cocaine abuse and addiction simply want to catch up on sleep — and they have the ability to do so, uninterrupted, in our well-appointed, private and semi-private bedrooms. Because cocaine abuse often are malnourished, we focus on nutrition. We serve three home-cooked meals a day and clients have 24-hour access to a fully stocked kitchen. Behavioral therapy is an important part of cocaine detox — we offer individual and group therapy sessions facilitated by a licensed therapist.

    Comprehensive Addiction Recovery

    At Guardian Recovery Network we remain dedicated to providing our clients with a comprehensive program of cocaine detox — one that focuses on much more than physical stabilization. In addition to placing an emphasis on physical recovery we tackle the mental, emotional and spiritual implications of active addiction. While we prioritize a safe and pain-free cocaine withdrawal, we also offer individual, group and family therapy sessions, case management services, relapse prevention training and aftercare planning. The level of clinical care we provide cannot be found in any state-funded detox facility or traditional hospital setting.

    If you or your loved one is ready to begin an entirely new way of life and commit to long-term recovery, contact us today. As soon as you make the decision to pick up the phone and give us a call we begin developing a plan of action that begins with an initial pre-assessment. This assessment helps us determine which level of care is the most appropriate for each unique case. If we believe that our medically monitored detox program is a good fit, we begin sorting through potential coverage options. We work closely with most major regional and national providers.
