Cocaine Addiction Treatment in Los Angeles

Cocaine Addiction Treatment in Los Angeles

Cocaine, a powerful stimulant derived from the coca plant, has long been a significant public health concern worldwide. According to the World Drug Report, an estimated 18 million people globally used cocaine in recent years, reflecting a 20% increase from a decade ago.

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) further highlights that in the United States alone, cocaine-related overdose deaths have tripled since 2013. This white, powdery substance, often glamorized in popular culture, has a dark side. Its intense, euphoric effects are short-lived, leading many users into a dangerous cycle of increasing consumption to chase those initial feelings.

We understand the seriousness of coke addiction at The Encino Recovery & Detox Center. Our trained medical professionals and licensed therapists offer a monitored medical detox and residential recovery program with dual diagnosis therapy to aid in overcoming cocaine abuse.

Understanding Cocaine Addiction 

Cocaine is also referred to as blow or “snow”. It is snorted in the form of a white powder. Users enjoy it for its effects of energy, focus and feelings of euphoria. 

However, the effects are short-lasting (only minutes to an hour). Coke boosts dopamine in the brain. Dopamine impacts pleasure, processing rewards, and motivation. This is the reason why coke is so habit-forming.

Our team at Encino understands the challenges in fighting coke addiction. Recognizing the symptoms of cocaine abuse is important. Some common symptoms include: 

Physical 

  • Memory loss 
  • Restlessness or insomnia 
  • Headache
  • Decreased heart rate  
  • Nosebleeds 
  • Diarrhea or stomach problems 
  • In high doses or mixed with alcohol, risk of heart attack and overdose 

Psychological & Behavioral

  • Rapid speech
  • Anxiety
  • Depression (during crashes when the drug wears off)  
  • Irritability or aggression 
  • Paranoia 
  • Neglecting responsibilities and obligations
  • Financial difficulties 
  • Strained relationships 
  • Legal troubles  

Coke is often consumed in social settings and mixed with alcohol. This combination can put users at extremely high risk of overdose. 

Treating Coke Addiction with The Encino Approach

The Encino understands the severity of cocaine addiction. Our facility is a safe environment for detoxing and provides on-going programs to support the recovery journey. 

Our team of compassionate medical professionals and licensed therapists will help you or a loved one through the entire process. The Encino provides comprehensive care at each step of the recovery journey to individuals with coke addiction. 

Detox 

Detox is the first stage of treatment for a coke addiction. It includes the process of eliminating coke from the body under supervision. Cocaine withdrawal can look different for each user, but common symptoms typically include:  

  • Low mood
  • Fatigue or excessive sleeping
  • General feeling of discomfort 
  • Headache 

Inpatient Program 

Following detox, users enter into a residential treatment program. Our team provides a variety of treatments and teaches healthy relaxation strategies to avoid using in the first place. 

 The following is a short list of treatment approaches within our inpatient treatment program:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Group Therapy Sessions 
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Somatic Experiencing and Body Work
  • Medication Therapy
  • Holistic activities in group and individual settings (yoga, meditation, art therapy) 

Dual Diagnosis Therapy

Cocaine use can increase symptoms of present mental health conditions. While many begin taking coke to increase energy or feel “happier”, prolonged use can actually make symptoms worse. 

Our treatment approach at The Encino is guided by an integrated dual diagnosis philosophy, treating both the addiction and any co-occurring mental health disorders. 

This may include a combination of therapeutic approaches, medication management and psychoeducation to address specific needs of each individual.
