Cocaine Abuse Treatment Program

Cocaine Addiction in Massachusetts

Cocaine is one of the most mentally addictive psychoactive drugs that individuals struggling with substance use disorders in Massachusetts abuse. At Aftermath Addiction Treatment Center in Wakefield, MA, we understand how difficult life can be for an individual struggling with cocaine addiction. 

Aftermath Addiction Treatment Center provides a structured schedule and a supportive environment as part of our cocaine addiction treatment program. As with other substance abuse treatment programs our rehab center offers, our staff customizes cocaine abuse treatment programs in MA based on each client’s specific needs.

What Are the Symptoms of Cocaine Abuse?

Cocaine use disorder is a chronic condition due to what the drug does to the brain of an individual struggling with cocaine addiction. Cocaine alters your brain chemistry by flooding it with dopamine — a “feel good” chemical messenger — making it psychologically addictive. 

Individuals suffering from cocaine use disorder can be afflicted with various psychological and physical symptoms. This is partly due to how an individual takes the drug into their body. Cocaine can be taken nasally or snorted, injected intravenously, or smoked as crack cocaine. The following are some of the signs of cocaine abuse.

Physical Signs of Cocaine Abuse

Physical symptoms of cocaine abuse include:

  • Agitation
  • Dilated pupils
  • Hypertension or high blood pressure
  • Lack of sleep followed by long periods of sleep
  • Nose bleeds
  • Runny nose
  • Sudden weight loss

Individuals struggling with cocaine abuse may also have burned lips from smoking crack cocaine or track marks from IV drug use.

Mental Signs of Cocaine Abuse

Psychological symptoms of cocaine abuse include:

  • Euphoria
  • Paranoia
  • Psychosis

Psychosis may involve delusions and hallucinations.

Behavioral Signs of Cocaine Abuse

Behavioral symptoms of cocaine abuse include:

  • Aggression
  • Antisocial behavior
  • Apathy
  • Depression
  • Erratic behavior

Generally, any behavior that’s not typical for the individual may be a sign of cocaine abuse.

Cocaine Withdrawal

Withdrawal from cocaine is unpleasant. Cocaine alters brain chemistry, and individuals struggling with cocaine abuse develop a mental and physical need for the substance. Those who have experienced long-term cocaine addiction go through several serious withdrawal symptoms. Symptoms of withdrawal from cocaine addiction include:

  • Anxiety
  • Chills
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Fatigue
  • Increased appetite
  • Intense cocaine cravings
  • Insomnia
  • Tremors

Those struggling with cocaine addiction should not deal with the side effects of the withdrawal process alone. Instead, they should do so under medical supervision at an inpatient drug and alcohol detox facility. 

Detoxing is just the beginning of the addiction recovery process. Individuals struggling with cocaine addiction should continue their treatment at an outpatient rehab facility, such as Aftermath Addiction Treatment Center in Wakefield, MA.
