QUIT COCAINE AND OVERCOME ADDICTION
Cocaine detoxification is an essential measure to initiate a habit change as soon as cocaine addiction is detected.
Quitting cocaine is not a simple task, but a multitude of processes come into play that in most cases require a specialist cocaine detoxification center such as CITA. Deciding to do a treatment to quit cocaine is the most sensible thing to do and it has been shown to be highly effective.
Cocaine detox treatment begins with an immediate cessation of use to begin cocaine detoxification. Subsequently, the phases of withdrawal and reintegration begin through psychology and change of habits of the patient.
TREATMENT TO QUIT COCAINE
Treatment to quit cocaine requires the initial consent of the cocaine addict being aware and consistent of the problem. Motivation and improvement will be key in the development of the treatment.
Cocaine is one of the drugs that generates the most addiction, so the first step is detoxification, to eliminate cocaine from the patient’s body 100%. During this stage and throughout the treatment, consumption is prohibited and the symptoms generated by cocaine addiction begin to be treated.
A center for cocaine addicts like CITA, which has recovered thousands of patients, has a team of doctors who will individually supervise each patient during the total detox protocol. Each patient must have a treatment appropriate to their habit and amount of consumption.
Asking for help to quit cocaine is not bad, it is taking a step forward.
One of the main tips to stop using cocaine is to avoid starting treatment alone, since you do not need the psychological support or the pharmacological help prescribed by specialist doctors, who help control the imbalance caused by quitting cocaine. Addiction physicians need to prescribe antidepressants to control the patient’s anxiety and mood during the process.
Overcoming this stage assumes that the patient has overcome physical dependence and the phase of psychological dependence or withdrawal from consumption can begin.

COCAINE DETOXICATION CENTER
At the cocaine detoxification center, our work is distinguished by being adapted to the characteristics and needs of each patient who cannot or does not know how to stop using cocaine.
These thirty years of experience dedicated to treating both drug addictions allow us to ensure the efficacy of cocaine detoxification treatments, and respond to adequate biopsychosocial intervention. CITA stands out as a center for cocaine addicts due to its good results in rehabilitation.
As a clinic for the treatment of cocaine, the presence of psychiatrists, the combination of individual therapies and group therapies, or the participation in cognitive-behavioral workshops -such as relapse prevention workshops, social skills workshops or workshops of management of emotions- are necessary elements for the elaboration of an effective plan to overcome the addiction to coca and start the rehabilitation process.
One of the greatest advantages that CITA offers to the patient is the assurance that they can stop using cocaine, providing them with a safe containment framework and a multidisciplinary team with which they can create a stable bond as a tool to help them stop using cocaine.
Our patients have a professional follow-up from their initial assessment upon admission, to their social reintegration, and the therapeutic community at Dosrius offers them the possibility of connecting with nature and allows them to recover in an ideal and controlled environment.
Many families wonder how to help a person who uses cocaine, and at CITA we provide support and therapeutic solutions to these cases.
HOW LONG DOES THE COCAINE DETOX TREATMENT LAST?
Knowing how long the cocaine detoxification process takes is difficult to identify a priori. Each patient has different consumption habits, as well as a more or less severe addiction to cocaine over time, so estimating the time necessary to know how to detoxify from coca is variable.
The treatment does not consist only in cleaning the body of coca and overcoming the withdrawal syndrome, but in working with the patient, the mind and his habits for total recovery, so it is not possible to identify without prior analysis when he will be ready to recover. his life without relapses.
The recovery time for cocaine is estimated in weeks or months depending on the consumption that has been carried out and the physical and psychological effects suffered by the patient as a result.
SYMPTOMS OF COCAINE ADDICTION
Symptoms of cocaine abuse identify the addict and make him vulnerable. The effects can take from fifteen to thirty minutes depending on the way of consumption. Initially, the user experiences a feeling of euphoria and self-confidence, although it can also produce paranoia and anxiety.
- In the first phase of consumption, tolerance to cocaine develops, which increases the doses in order to maintain the degree of euphoria.
- Sporadic weekend use can also lead to dependence on this drug.
- This substance can also cause psychiatric, neurological, cardiac and respiratory problems.
COCAINE WITHDRAWAL SYNDROME
Cocaine withdrawal syndrome occurs when cocaine has been used persistently and the use of this drug is reduced or abandoned and is part of the detoxification process. Coca withdrawal symptoms can occur even if the user has not completely given up this drug and still has some substance in their blood.
The symptoms of quitting cocaine and withdrawal often have no visible physical symptoms, but can lead to discomfort and vomiting and / or tremors that usually last a few days. For this reason, many addicts do not know how to get off cocaine, and they urgently need a coca specialist.
Knowing how long the coca monkey lasts is also relative, although it is estimated that in a few weeks it can be overcome. This does not imply that the patient is cured because the monkey is only interpreted as the need to consume, the habit and customs of the addict are what lead him to continue consuming even without mono.
Cocaine dependence can be defined as a state that arises from repeated administration on a continuous schedule or period.
Characteristics of the dependency include:
- The intense desire or need to continually take the drug and obtain it by any means.
- The absence of tolerance to the effects of the drug during continued administration. In the most frequent type of periodic use, the drug can be consumed at short intervals, resulting in an intense toxic reaction.
- Psychic dependence on the effects of the drug is a reality, in addition to depriving the withdrawal syndrome.
The negative influence of drugs on work, friends, family and legal conflicts are important sequelae of cocaine use disorders.
These disorders derived from cocaine addiction are often long-lasting.
