What Is Cocaine?

Popular in the 1980s and 90s party scene, cocaine is a white stimulant powder still used today. Derived from the South American coca plant, snorting and ingesting cocaine can provide a rush of dopamine and euphoria. The drug can be highly motivating as it speeds up messages from the brain to the body. Often called coke, blow, powder, or white lady, cocaine is readily available among street drugs. Concentrated coke, known as crack cocaine, is a stronger, more dangerous, and more addictive form of cocaine.

Signs of Cocaine Abuse

Cocaine use quickly leads to addiction. Cocaine abuse is the first step towards addiction. When the brain becomes dependent on cocaine, it becomes addicted. Signs of cocaine abuse include:

  • Craving cocaine
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Intense energy followed by exhaustion
  • Mania and depression

Because cocaine is a stimulant, it can cause intense elation and euphoria followed by a wave of depression. For those living with co-occurring disorders like anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder, cocaine can temporarily reduce symptoms. Unfortunately, when cocaine leaves the bloodstream, mood disorder symptoms will return and worsen. This crash and depressive mood can increase the risk of addiction.

Types of Cocaine Addiction Recovery Programs

Attempting to quit cocaine at home can be dangerous. Withdrawal effects and worsening symptoms from co-occurring disorders can make it hard to avoid relapse, other drug use, and overdose.
Every person’s cocaine addiction is different. Therefore, it’s important to find the best program for safe, effective, long-term recovery. Common cocaine recovery programs include:

  • Outpatient recovery: Clients visit the clinic daily but sleep at home. They receive affordable, comprehensive treatment at the clinic, which often includes medically assisted detox, individual, group, and family therapy.
  • 12 step recovery: 12-step programs originated with Alcoholics Anonymous. They focus on a 12 step recovery journey that is often faith-based.
  • Inpatient recovery: Inpatient programs provide the highest level of support and care. Clients go through detox and recovery at the clinic, where they have the least access to cocaine and other drugs.

Many factors can help someone decide what kind of treatment program is best for them. Those with strong support systems and drug-free homes may do well in outpatient programs. Those looking to build community might like 12-step programs. Inpatient programs often provide medically assisted detox to ease withdrawal and help those who need the highest levels of support.
