Cocaine Addiction Treatment For Those Who Get The Fast High, Fast Descent into Addiction

The cost of being high is high. Financially, a gram of cocaine can cost anywhere between $60 and $120, sometimes more, and the powder is rarely pure. Users often know that it gets mixed with sugar, cornstarch, or even more dangerous substances. But the addiction is so strong that users will pay more than $300 per day for a drug with extremely harmful effects. When you find yourself paying such large sums of money for cocaine (aka coke), it is time for cocaine addiction treatment.

Financial costs aren’t the only costs cocaine users incur. Often, they’re trying to re-experience the high they got in the beginning. But the truth is that no matter how much you intake, cocaine delivers less and less euphoria each hit. Next thing you know, you’re addicted and need more and more every time you want to get that elusive feeling back. But by then, the damage may have been done and now you need to go through cocaine rehab to get you back on track. 

If you take cocaine, you may do it for the increased intensity, the high energy high it gives you. But if you take cocaine, you know that high is extremely short-lived, lasting at most half an hour – if you’re lucky.

But these are also short-term effects of cocaine use:
  • Violent or strange behaviour;
  • Paranoia;
  • Anxiety;
  • Narrowing blood vessels;
  • Increase in blood pressure;
  • Irregular heart beat;
  • Chance of heart attack;
  • Chance of stroke;
  • Chance of seizure;
  • Chance of respiratory failure.
Even with brief or infrequent use, cocaine can pose serious health hazards. But with long-term use, the list of dangers is actually terrifying. Long-term effects of cocaine use include:
  • Tissue damage;
  • Lung damage;
  • Sexual impotence;
  • Brain damage;
  • Anorexia/weight loss;
  • Hemorrhaging;
  • Strokes;
  • Seizures;
  • Higher risk of cocaine binge.

What are Cocaine Binges?

A cocaine binge is when you take the drug several times in increasing doses in a short period of time. You get addicted as you strive for frequent, stronger euphoria episodes.

Because the body quickly adapts to the high, cocaine binges don’t bring more or stronger euphoria episodes. Instead, they often lead to overdose and death. You end up chasing something fleeting that costs you the entire rest of your life.

Be Quick to Get Cocaine Addiction Treatment At A Drug Rehab

Better than chasing that elusive high would be to go to a drug rehabilitation centre and restore balance in your life. Cocaine Treatment can help you regain your ability to feel pleasure in natural ways. The sooner you get help, the less long you’ll have to suffer from addiction.

Although it can be hard at first to adjust to the normal pace of life, soon enough you’ll learn to manage your cravings. You’ll allow yourself to experience things fully, without drugs clouding your perception, impairing your judgement and endangering your life.

Why Quit Through Rehab? Why Not By Myself?

Cocaine is known to have one of the most powerful reinforcing effects among all psychoactive drugs. A study on rats showed that they chose cocaine over food and water when given the option.

Since discontinuing the use of cocaine can cause strong cocaine withdrawal symptoms such as depression, lethargy and irritability, the best and safest way to recover is to seek professional help.
