When you decide to look at the various options for a cocaine detox, there are some centers that might be more beneficial to you than others, so let’s take a closer look at how a cocaine detox program can help you achieve your goals.

First and foremost, when detoxing from cocaine, it is crucial that you experience safety and comfort throughout the process, as well as the assistance you will receive in achieving your freedom from your substance use disorder. It’s for this reason, to help you make the best choice for your recovery, that we’ve put together this brief guide.

Here at Zinnia Healing (855) 430-9439, with our private clinic-like environment and a staff of highly trained health professionals, we will provide you with all the care you need to finally get free from cocaine addiction.

In this article, we cover how you will free yourself from the effects of the drug with a full and effective cocaine detox, and what the cocaine detox program at Zinnia Healing involves. We describe how cocaine negatively impacts your body, and how we safely manage all the experiences and symptoms of cocaine withdrawal. We go into the full cocaine detox process, what you can expect, how long it is likely to take, available treatments, and what you can do today to give yourself a head start on gaining freedom from cocaine.

Cocaine Detox: What Can You Expect From Zinnia Healing?

We know, from all the people we have treated who have passed through our doors at Zinnia Healing, how challenging it can be to free yourself from cocaine. That is why we offer a range of services in the management of substance use disorders that can help you detox in the most humane and beneficial way. Our qualified medical professionals can help you detox from cocaine through careful monitoring of your condition, pain relief, and other treatment as needed.

We will even keep you safe during this process by providing a comfortable, supportive environment that is dedicated to stopping drug addiction for good. This is absolutely crucial; we have found from our extensive treatment experience that many people often mistakenly consider cocaine to be a “safe” drug. Users can be deceived by the euphoria that is experienced upon taking the drug.

If taking cocaine has become a habit, often in extremely social surroundings, when you do come to the realization that your use of the drug has become a problem, the psychological dependence on cocaine that has been unknowingly formed is likely to reveal itself as a huge problem. So if you’re looking for a comfortable, effective, and caring cocaine detox facility, please know that you don’t need to do this alone.

How Does Cocaine Negatively Affect Your Body and Mind?

In short, cocaine primarily affects the body’s metabolism, and the drug’s properties are ultimately made more or less potent by the way in which it is ingested. Over the years, the use of cocaine has become even more potent and dangerous due to the way in which it is ingested. Whilst some people have preferred to ingest the drug through smoking or through intranasal use, there has been a notable shift in recent years to the administration of cocaine by smoking it. In contrast to snorting cocaine, which produces a quick and intense, but relatively short-lasting euphoric effect, ingestion through smoking makes the drug incredibly potent.

However, it also massively increases dependence on the drug, as well as negative responses to it. The other methods of administration do not produce such intense effects. Here at Zinnia Healing, we have a long experience in helping users who have become addicted to the strong effects of “crack” cocaine. Call us at (855) 430-9439 to find out how we carefully manage your cocaine detox process.

The Psychological Impact of a Cocaine Detox

A major issue is that when cocaine use is stopped, the mood elevation that cocaine causes immediately crashes, and other health and psychological problems quickly reveal themselves. As the National Library of Medicine notes, you are likely to experience symptoms such as fatigue, yet at the same time an inability to sleep, as well as suspicion and paranoia, extreme irritability, and anxiety. The relationship between the use of cocaine and faltering mental health has been expertly documented, and world psychiatry has long established that cocaine addiction is potentially very dangerous. In many cases, whilst both taking cocaine and detoxing from it, people can experience delusions, extreme emotional shifts, and depression.

These are not only unpleasant symptoms to experience, but they could potentially be dangerous for you if you are left alone when experiencing all these psychological effects. Here at Zinnia Healing, we can help with all the troublesome psychological side effects of drug withdrawal, providing our patients with all the tools needed to feel safe and get themselves back on track.

As a result of our long experience in managing cocaine detox programs, we have a fully-staffed facility capable of helping people get through the most challenging psychological aspects of detoxification from the drug, such as:

  • anxiety
  • agitation
  • depression
  • restlessness
  • anger
  • paranoia
  • lethargy
  • intense and unpleasant dreams and nightmares
  • strong cravings for cocaine
  • delusions
  • decreased appetite
  • cardiac arrest
  • suicidal thoughts and actions

It isn’t only the unpleasant and potentially dangerous psychological side effects that are a major concern in the cocaine detox process. Cocaine and its withdrawal can physically affect the body in numerous ways. While the extent to which you’re affected by these symptoms will be determined by the intensity of your usage of cocaine, those you can expect to experience may include:

  • shivering and chills
  • vomiting
  • muscle pain
  • exhaustion
  • sweating
  • headaches and nausea
  • bodily tremors

It’s precisely for this reason that here at Zinnia Healing, we work hard to make sure that our residents have all the friendliness and support they need to effectively get through their cocaine detox. Over the course of the past decade, there has been a notable increase across America in the number of overdose deaths from cocaine, and our goal is to reduce this as much as we can, by providing an effective and caring rehabilitation program.

While there are no medications that can help with overcoming addiction to cocaine, we can provide behavioral and psychological treatments that will help you to stabilize your mood, treat any depression, and aid you in your avoidance of any potential future use of cocaine.

If you are considering a drug detox that would benefit you with assistance such as counseling and medically monitored assistance, contact Zinnia Healing at (855) 430-9439 for a free assessment and more information about your options.

Cocaine is known to increase dopamine levels, which causes addiction and long-term disorders. Getting over low dopamine can be quite challenging if you’re still heavily reliant on cocaine, as your brain will crave it, in order to stimulate the production of dopamine and feel good or even normal again.

That’s why at Zinnia Healing, our expertise is in drawing up a personalized cocaine detox plan, to ensure that you detox safely and avoid relapse, exaggerated withdrawal symptoms, and mental stress.

We know how challenging it can be to free yourself from cocaine. That is why we offer a range of services that can help you detox in the most humane and beneficial way.

Our medical professionals can help you detox from cocaine through careful monitoring of your condition, pain relief, and other treatment as needed. We will do our utmost to keep you safe during this process by providing a comfortable, supportive environment that is dedicated to stopping drug addiction for good.

Particularly if your usage of cocaine has been heavy, or if you were using the drug in a chronic manner or chaotic environment, it is crucial that your cocaine detox is closely supervised in a comfortable and caring space to avoid the potential for any dangerous outcomes. Depending on your level of usage and addiction, an effective cocaine detox can take between 7 to 10 days. After this, the specialists at Zinnia Healing can continue to monitor you on your recovery journey to make sure that you continue to receive effective support.

That is what we would like to offer to you and all those who need help. Detoxing from cocaine is not easy, but it doesn’t have to be so hard if you are being well looked after by professionals who understand your needs, as well as being supported throughout the entire process with the right level of medical intervention.

Freedom From Cocaine

When thinking about how to detox from cocaine, we would highly recommend that you look at detoxing within a well-monitored and medically-assisted environment, so that you are kept safe and comfortable throughout the process. Please don’t delay your recovery any further, and call Zinnia Healing at (855) 430-9439 to help you on your journey to freedom from cocaine.
