Cocaine addiction is a huge problem in the United States and elsewhere around the globe. But, where do you go to get real help if you have this problem?
The only sane solution for cocaine addiction is a program which replaces the cravings for drugs with sobriety and gives the recovering addict tools to build a productive, enjoyable and drug-free life. Narconon drug rehabilitation centers offer just such a program. Narconon centers exist around the world in more than 50 countries and have been helping drug addicts and alcoholics for over 45 years.
If you seek help in a medical-oriented drug abuse rehab program, they may try some other prescription drug to see if it might help with cocaine addiction. One of these is called Topiramate®. Or your doctor may ask you to take aripiprazole or some other drug to help. Many of these types of drugs are being marketed to get someone off of cocaine and other dangerous street drugs. But, the side effects of these other “medical” or “psychiatric” drugs could be more dangerous than the street drugs themselves. Such side effects as rapid weight gain, suicidal thoughts and actions, high blood pressure, anxiety, insomnia, headaches and diabetes are just a few of the problems that may be faced.
A recovering drug addict doesn’t need more drugs to aggravate an already addictive personality. The solution offered by pharmaceutical companies never teaches the addict skills to break free of his addictive habits, but only replaces one drug for another.
Narconon is a drug-free program, which gradually and gently sees the addict through the withdrawal phase, and carries through until the person is ready to return to a drug-free, productive and non-addicted life.
At first, Narconon supplements the person's diet with healthy foods and plenty of added nutrients. Often, the withdrawal that drug addicts experience is made worse by poor nutrition. Adding B vitamins, calcium, magnesium and several other vitamins and minerals has been found to decrease significantly the cocaine withdrawal pains and often-experienced depression. This phase includes gentle orientation exercises and physical assists and escorted walks, which all help to calm the body’s reactions to drug withdrawal. The Narconon program also sees that the person is cared for with one-on-one counseling, and given assistance to help him or her get through the withdrawal.
After that, the next step is the Narconon New Life Detoxification Program, which includes moderate daily exercise, more nutritional supplementation and closely supervised dry heat sauna. This causes the drug residues lodged in fatty tissues of the body to be eliminated, and according to many recovered addicts, the program significantly lessens the craving for more drugs.
After this deep detox is completed, there are several more exercises to get the person extroverted and more aware of his present-time environment. He is given more one-on-one care and also helps someone else through this phase of the program.
Following this step, Narconon provides training in basic and very essential life skills, such as communication, handling life’s ups and downs, and gives the recovering addict several tools to rebuild a sane, drug-free life. He learns the skills of making better decisions which will lead to a happier and more productive future before graduating the program.
The success of the Narconon program speaks for itself. After all, seven of every ten graduates remain drug-free for years after returning home.
There is hope for a drug-free life, no matter how addicted to cocaine one has become.
