Cocaine Addiction

It takes a great deal of courage and strength to admit that you have a problem you can’t overcome on your own. Cocaine addiction is just that kind of problem. Cocaine is a highly addictive substance. Even intermittent use can rapidly lead to intense physical and mental dependency. Cocaine addiction can be extremely rapid in progression due to the drug’s effect upon brain chemistry. At Melrose Recovery Center our goal is to give you the tools you need to maintain your ongoing recovery. Our program begins where others end.

We see exceptional individuals who are struggling with their addictions. You will be given the ability to learn about the disease of addiction and come to understand any underlying causes that may be driving your destructive behaviors. Underlying issues that have hampered your recovery efforts in the past may be; depression, trauma (PTSD) grief or loss issues, anxiety, bipolar disorder, ADHD, and sleep disorders. Our programs are customized to meet your needs. You will receive our unfailing support.

Cocaine is a powerfully addictive stimulant drug that can cause a variety of adverse, even deadly, effects on your mind and body.  Many habitual users develop a manic-like condition similar to schizophrenia, with symptoms including aggression, severe paranoia, and tactile hallucinations.

Regardless of the method of administration or how frequently you have used cocaine, users can easily overdose. Those with cocaine addictions often have reduced blood flow to their heart and hardened arteries. These two conditions can lead to cardiac arrest, even in teenagers. Long-term addiction to cocaine can cause brain hemorrhaging, respiratory failure, kidney failure, and stroke. Ultimately the body begins to slow in function and coma or even loss of life can follow.

A new study recently indicated that stimulant drugs can actually change the brain’s chemistry. These findings may explain why recovering cocaine addicts still feel the desire for the drug even after they have gone through withdrawal, treatment programs and an extended period of complete non-use.

Melrose Recovery Center was created to be there to give support to the recovering addict. We can help you break the continuing cycle of addictive behavior in which you have been involved. Many of our facilitators have been where you are now. You will be in a safe and comfortable environment, where you can share your experiences with people who understand. Our entire program is built on the concept of helping the individual through the entire recovery process and on to a lasting recovery. We start at the beginning, move through your transition from addiction into recovery, and continue to aid your recovery through the first year and beyond.
