Cocaine Detox

Cocaine, being a water soluble drug, disperses through and out of the body quickly. Just like its short-lived high, it does not stay in your body for very long, which is why there is really no technical or medical cocaine detox process to follow when attempting to treat cocaine addiction. Rather, detoxification involves preventing the effects of psychological withdrawal that comes after the cessation of cocaine use. The process essentially helps the user ease withdrawal symptoms and prevents the rebound effect that often results from binge cocaine use. The most common symptom of cocaine withdrawal is depression, leaving the user feeling extremely low because of psychological dependency on the drug.

Physical and Psychological Implications

The cocaine that users consume always goes through the 'cutting' process, where in the drug's purity and strength is reduced using a variety of substances like baby laxative and Vitamin B. Along with cocaine, these substances also have their own toxic effects on the body. In turn, some kind of stabilization process must be put into play during cocaine detox to diminish their physical implications. Long periods of exposure to these substances and toxins can also have serious physical consequences to the user and these effects must be addressed during the initial detox.

The detoxification process for cocaine abuse does not often require detox medications. Since withdrawal symptoms are psychological in nature, unique approaches are applied in order to address issues. If you subject yourself to cocaine detox after long periods of binge use, intense cravings will often be your greatest enemy, as the urge and desire to obtain cocaine will supersede your need to eat and take care of yourself. This is why most recovering addicts tend to lose a lot of weight during cocaine use as well as during rehab.

Cocaine use also often leads to extreme behavioural changes, such as irrational mood swings. Other physical implications that detox may have to deal with include extreme sleeplessness, which often lead to repetitive activities like cleaning and vacuuming. Behaviours like violence, irritation, and irrational anger also call for cocaine rehab.

Along with dealing with various psychological withdrawal symptoms, detox also involves nutritional monitoring to help you regain physical health. The process also requires constant monitoring of the body's vital functions to ensure no severe damage has been done to internal organs.
