Understanding Why You Can’t Stop Using Cocaine

Cocaine is one of the most addictive drugs available. It is also incredibly destructive and dangerous.

You may be wondering why you can’t stop using cocaine when you so desperately want to. The answer to this lies in your brain.

Addiction occurs through repeated exposure to a substance or activity that releases feel-good chemicals into the brain, creating a euphoric high.

When cocaine is taken, it triggers a considerable influx of chemicals in the user’s brain. The particular compound that is associated with addiction is called Dopamine. Dopamine is a naturally occurring chemical produced by the brain that regulates mood and emotions, enables pleasurable feelings and promotes motivation.

With repeated use of cocaine and the repeated false triggering of unnatural amounts of dopamine, the brain becomes confused and stops producing rewarding chemicals organically. Instead, the brain rewires itself to actively seek the “reward” inducing drug, in this case – cocaine.

As cocaine addiction progresses, the addict’s brain reaches a point where it becomes tolerant of cocaine’s effects. The user is compelled to seek the high and so takes more significant and more frequent amounts of cocaine. At the peak of addiction, the user is unable to feel any pleasure with or without cocaine. Despite this, the brain still drives the addict to seek relief through cocaine – that relief no longer happens.

The healthy “control” brain releases its own dopamine (shown in red). With addiction, natural production of dopamine is inhibited. As you can see in the cocaine-addicted brain, it is halted completely.

A cocaine addict becomes increasingly anxious, paranoid and depressed, perhaps even suicidal.

Does Rehab Cure Cocaine Addiction?

Cocaine rehab cannot cure addiction, but what it does do is provide a safe place for life-saving intervention. In a cocaine rehab UK, an addict will not have access to alcohol or drugs, and so the cycle of addiction is interrupted. A short course of cocaine detox medication is prescribed to remove or diminish cocaine cravings.

While the addiction has been halted; the patient undergoes intensive therapy to help repair and rewire the brain. This is not an overnight process, and the brain can never fully be restored to how it was before addiction developed. One line of cocaine can set the whole horrific cycle of addiction off once more, as the brain will still recognise the drug and actively seek more.

The only way to stay in recovery from cocaine addiction is complete abstinence. In cocaine rehab, counsellors and therapists work hard to bring about a considerable shift in thinking in the patient. The rehab team achieve this by applying evidence-based treatments and proven therapeutic techniques.

Cocaine rehab patients are shown a set of recovery tools that they will need to continue to apply once they have completed their rehab programme. This keeps the obsession with using cocaine at bay and enables recovery.

If You Have A Problem With Cocaine Why You Should Consider Rehab

Cocaine in the UK is purer and stronger than ever before – Aa result it is causing more fatalities. If you have a problem with cocaine you may well be thinking, “it won’t happen to me I know my dealer, I know the source”. We are pretty sure that the 432 individuals that died in 2017 from cocaine poisoning thought the same.

In England and Wales, cocaine-related deaths have quadrupled over the past ten years. Cocaine abuse and addiction kills – FACT.

Rehab For Alcohol and Cocaine Addiction – Cocaethylene

Rehab Guide provides bespoke rehab programmes for those that are addicted to alcohol and cocaine.

These two substances are commonly combined in addiction and drug abuse. When cocaine and alcohol are used together, the liver processes them and turns them into a third even more addictive and extremely dangerous drug called cocaethylene.

When cocaethylene is produced, the user is at far higher risk of a cocaine overdose and cocaine and alcohol-related harms.

How Much Does Cocaine Rehab UK Cost?

The cost of cocaine rehab varies and is dependent on personal preference and treatment factors, including:

  • Whether you want a cheap cocaine rehab or luxury cocaine rehab
  • The severity of your addiction and how long you will need to stay in cocaine rehab to get well.
  • The area or location that you wish the rehab to be in
  • Whether you want fully residential cocaine rehab or quasi residential cocaine rehab

Rehab Guide can advise you on the costs of various cocaine rehab programmes and suggest the one that would best suit your individual treatment needs, and social and financial circumstances.

Where Can I Get Rehab For Cocaine Addiction?

Rehab Guide have CQC registered cocaine rehabilitation centres located all over the UK.

Whether you are looking for a cocaine rehab in London, Midlands, Scotland, Wales or the South East or West of England we can provide you with cocaine addiction help.

Accessing free cocaine rehab for addiction on the NHS is practically impossible. This is due to substantial government cutbacks and also the fact that cocaine is not generally considered a substance that requires a detox.

Our private cocaine treatment centres prescribe a short course of detox medication as our addiction experts recognise that cocaine produces intense cravings. We want our patients to be able to stay in the safe environments of our cocaine clinics and focus on their recovery. A medical cocaine detox enables our patients to do this.

If you or a loved one are looking for a cocaine rehab near you, or anywhere in the UK, please call Rehab Guide. We will match you with your ideal rehab programme following a comprehensive telephone assessment.
