Cocaine Detox at Banyan Palm Springs
Cocaine is a drug that stimulates the central nervous system. While it does have some medical purposes, it is mostly used recreationally in the United States for it euphoric effects. Typically a fine white powder, cocaine is often snorted or injected. Like other illicit drugs, cocaine is highly addictive and can quickly lead to dependence, making it hard for the person to quit without professional interference.
Our Coachella Valley drug rehab wants to help. In order to get sober for good, the first step to cocaine addiction treatment is a cocaine detox.
Cocaine Withdrawal Symptoms & Detox TimelineLike with other drugs, the cocaine detox process is far from easy. Because the body and the brain have become dependent on this substance, a detox from cocaine is typically accompanied with withdrawal symptoms as the body adjusts to no longer having this drug in its system. These withdrawal symptoms can vary from uncomfortable to even life-threatening and depends on a variety of factors including the severity of the addiction, the length of the addiction, the individual’s health, and the use of other substances.
Some possible cocaine withdrawal symptoms during detox include:
- Shaking or tremors
- Muscle aches and pain
- Trouble with concentration
- Increased appetite
- Problems sleeping
- Agitation or irritability
- Drug cravings
- Suicidal thoughts or actions
The cocaine detox timeline will also be dependent on a variety of factors, but in most cases, symptoms will last for a little over a week. Cocaine withdrawal symptoms can start as soon as 90 minutes after use stops and usually peak within the next few days. After a few days, symptoms will start to wane, but some lingering symptoms like mood swings and drug cravings can last longer or reappear after a long period of time. During this whole process, withdrawal symptoms can become overwhelming and risk of relapse is high, especially if someone attempts to go about this process on their own.
Our Cocaine Detox Center in the Coachella ValleyAt Banyan Palm Springs, we want to make the cocaine detox process as easy as possible. In order to do so, our medical drug detox programs provide patients with a safe and comfortable environment for this process. Medical staff are available 24/7 to monitor symptoms during cocaine detox. Not only are they available to provide immediate medical attention for any serious problems that evolve, but they are also there to help patients manage their withdrawal symptoms including both the mental and physical symptoms.
Just because detox is over doesn’t mean treatment is over. After detox, patients will transition into our residential addiction treatment program to focus on other aspects of substance abuse like underlying causes for their addiction and how to maintain their sobriety in recovery. With the help of several treatment programs and therapies, patients will be able to more confidently leave our facility ready to reenter their regular lives.
A cocaine addiction can be dangerous for your physical, mental, and even spiritual health. It can not only destroy the addicted person’s life, but also affect those people closest them. Instead of watching as cocaine destroys your life or the life of someone you care about, let us help.
Our mission, your recovery.
