Once a user has acknowledged they have a problem with the use of cocaine, detox is the first step in recovery. Cocaine is not a drug that affects the user with harsh physical withdrawal symptoms; instead the person will have to tolerate extreme mental cravings and psychological torment. The psychological desire for cocaine is actually stronger than the body’s need for the real drug and most cocaine addicts will experience the mental cravings, as well as varying degrees of depression and other symptoms, during the initial phase of detox.
At The Clifton Clinic we offer a medically supervised cocaine detox. During the process, cocaine detox is safe, and any unpleasant physical side effects (shaking, sweating, irritability and agitation) can be reduced with medication, if necessary. For this purpose The Clifton Clinic provides a full team of professionals, who are able to deal with any detox circumstances.
Although the specific amount of time it takes to detox varies according to the individual, cocaine detox usually lasts between five to fourteen days. This period may be longer or shorter, depending on the intensity of the addiction and the length of time the individual was using cocaine on a regular basis.
There is no need to feel ashamed or guilty about seeking help from a cocaine detox. The reality is that addiction happens to many people and without treatment many would not be able to get clean and sober.
Giving up a cocaine addiction isn’t effortless, however once the detox has been administered and the physical health restored, we can help users with the next step of recovery which will help and support them to conquer their addiction and put their drug use behind them and become a happy and healthy drug–free person.
