Cocaine Addiction Treatment

Cocaine Addiction Treatment in Las Vegas, NV

Address All 8 Dimensions of Wellness with The Nestled Recovery Center

Cocaine accounts for nearly 6% of all admissions to drug abuse treatment programs. The substance can be inhaled through the nose, injected into a vein, absorbed through soft tissues, or smoked as crack cocaine. Once someone consumes cocaine, they may feel talkative, energetic, and euphoric. This is because cocaine is a stimulant, or a drug that increases alertness and energy.

Because cocaine makes people feel good by increasing levels of dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine, many people become addicted quickly. When the temporary feelings of pleasure and satisfaction wear off, the body and brain may crave the substance again. Over time, an individual may need to consume more and more cocaine to achieve the desired effects. They may also become incapable of producing positive sensations without the drug.

This is known as cocaine addiction, and it affects about 913,000 people in the United States.

If you are addicted to cocaine, you are not alone, nor are you without options. The Nestled Recovery Center can help you through a cocaine addiction and teach you how to enjoy sobriety once again.

What Is Cocaine?

Also known as coke, C, snow, powder, or blow; cocaine is a Schedule II drug that is illegal for recreational use in the United States. Cocaine is derived from the South American coca plant and is typically sold as a fine, white crystalline powder. Often, cocaine is “cut” with other drugs, so many people who struggle with cocaine addiction are addicted to more than one substance.

“Crack” is the street name for smokable cocaine, due to the crackling sound freebase cocaine makes when it is smoked.

Any form of cocaine can be abused and lead to addiction. Short-term use of cocaine can have unfavorable side effects and long-term use can lead to serious health conditions.

For the sake of your physical and psychological health, call The Nestled Recovery Center ASAP.

How Treatment Works

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, treatment for cocaine addiction must not only address the way the drug changes your brain, but also any social, familial, and environmental factors that influence your drug use.

Some patients have co-occurring mental disorders that will need extra treatment and even pharmacological intervention.
