Get Treatment for Cocaine Addiction
Cocaine addiction continues to plague the U.S. and other countries. In 2008, almost fifteen percent of Americans had tried cocaine, with six percent having tried it by their senior year of high school.
Although there has been a slight decrease in Americans' reported cocaine use in the past few years, increases have been shown in the UK and Australia where its use has doubled in the past 8 years.
Narconon has achieved successful cocaine rehab treatment with its drug-free program on six continents and in dozens of locations around the world. Using close monitoring and one-on-one counseling as part of a comprehensive rehabilitation and treatment program, cocaine rehab can be done safely and effectively. The Narconon program offers just that.
Experts believe this type of withdrawal and rehab is best done in a residential facility that is some distance from the user's home, and thus away from the addict's usual drug suppliers. This allows him to simply focus on recovering, as well as removing him from the immediate problems and environment that may have triggered his drug usage.
Narconon rehabilitation centers offer treatment in inpatient facilities offering effective and often remarkably tolerable withdrawal. There the recovering cocaine addict receives care in a secure environment, including one-on-one counseling, as he may experience very strong cravings for the drug, and often depression triggered by the body's withdrawal from cocaine.
Cocaine is a powerfully addictive drug. Thus, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, it is unlikely that an individual will be able to reliably predict or control the extent to which he or she will continue to want or use the drug. And if addiction takes hold, the risk for relapse is high even following long periods of abstinence. Recent studies have shown that during periods of abstinence, the memory of the cocaine experience or exposure to cues associated with drug use can trigger tremendous craving and relapse to drug use.
Thus, a proven effective treatment program is required to ensure this will not occur. Full recovery is possible at Narconon, demonstrated by the fact that seven out of ten Narconon graduates stay clean and sober after they return home.
Another problem with continued cocaine use is that a tolerance may develop-this means that higher doses and/or more frequent use of cocaine is needed to register the same level of pleasure experienced during initial use. At the same time, users can become more sensitive to cocaine's anxiety-producing, convulsant, and other toxic effects.
Narconon starts treatment with nutritional support and assistance which can help lift the cocaine withdrawal depression, and helps to start to detoxify the body. Often, nutritional deficiencies and depletion of essential nutrients contribute to the cocaine cravings and to the withdrawal-related depression.
Then, the recovering cocaine addict continues to receive one-on-one supervision and monitoring, along with a full sauna detox program, called the Narconon New Life Detoxification Program. During this program, he will have the opportunity to rid the body of the toxic effects of the drug, flushing out the residues that may trigger the cravings, lack of focus, difficulty thinking and loss of motivation. He will also build a healthier body and regain a fresh viewpoint on the world, unclouded by the haze of cocaine. This is done with a dry-heat sauna, moderate exercise, and further nutritional supplementation.
After this deep detoxification, the program includes one-on-one orientation exercises, and further training in life skills to enable the recovering addict to rebuild his self-confidence and face the issues that may have been difficult to confront while plagued by drug dependency. There are several steps of the Narconon program, each one further building the ability of the recovering addict to chart a new course to a drug-free, ethical and productive life.
Cocaine treatment can be successful and even result in a fully drug-free life. It can be accomplished in just a few months at a Narconon drug and alcohol rehabilitation center.
