Cocaine, or “coke” or “blow” as it’s known on the streets, is a powerful stimulant derived from the leaves of the coca plant from South America. Individuals who abuse cocaine report feeling increased energy, immediate euphoria, and increased talkativeness along with a host of physical damage to the cardiovascular system of the body. Cocaine is produced in two primary forms: white powder and crack rock. Powdered cocaine is snorted or dissolved in water, then injected into the bloodstream. Crack can be smoked using a glass “crack pipe” and absorbed through the lungs. The duration and intensity of the effects of cocaine abuse depends upon the method of abuse: smoking or injecting coke causes a quicker, but shorter-lasting high (5 to 10 minutes), while snorting cocaine causes a more subdued and longer lasting high (15 to 30 minutes).
To continue the high, many cocaine abusers use cocaine in a binge/crash pattern – taking the drug often over a short time at higher and higher doses before “crashing.” This pattern of coke abuse can lead to irritability, restlessness, anxiety, paranoia, psychosis, and hallucinations.
Cocaine is especially dangerous when drug users abuse cocaine with other substances. If cocaine is combined with another stimulant such as methamphetamines, it can lead to cardiovascular collapse, stroke, heart attack, or sudden death. If coke is combined with downers such as opioid narcotics, benzodiazepines, or alcohol, this combination can evoke complications such as respiratory arrest, coma, seizures, and death. Cocaine is a highly dangerous illegal drug and cocaine addiction can cause massive damage to an addict’s life. At Options Behavioral Health, we understand how serious a cocaine addiction is and are ready to help you seek the treatment you so desperately need in order to lead a happy, fulfilled, sober life.

In detox, we will safely and effectively remove any drugs or alcohol in your system while monitoring you 24 hours a day to ensure your safety. When you are medically stabilized, you will be released into our inpatient addiction program.
Medication may be used at the beginning of your stay with us to manage unpleasant withdrawal symptoms or symptoms of co-occurring disorders. Some individuals are able to taper down their medications as they learn more effective ways of coping with unpleasant emotions. Others may learn that medication may be a part of their treatment for co-occurring disorders such as depression or bipolar disorder. The usage of medication will be closely monitored by your treatment team.
Inpatient therapy allows you to delve deep into your problems to get to the root of your addiction to cocaine. Through one-on-one therapy, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss ways in which cocaine addiction has changed your life and how to go about fixing the problems the drug has created. You’ll also discuss relapse prevention, co-occurring disorders, and learn more about addiction.
Group therapy is an excellent way for people struggling with addiction to substances such as cocaine to work together through their challenges.

You will work with your loved ones to discuss ways in which addition has affected them, while you teach them about addiction, recovery, and begin to mend broken bonds.
