Derived from the leaves of coca plants, cocaine is an addictive, stimulant substance used in pharmaceutical drugs for legitimate medicinal use. When used for recreational purposes, cocaine falls under illegal substances in the street drug category.
The temporary euphoria experienced with the use of cocaine causes a psychological and physical addiction, which makes an individual use cocaine repeatedly to attain the desired feeling. Repeated use of cocaine causes changes in the way the brain releases dopamine, a chemical that occurs naturally when a person is happy. Cocaine addiction inhibits the natural production of dopamine and replaces it with euphoric, almost manic feelings of high alertness, irritability, paranoia, and an energy level focused on obtaining and using cocaine. This uncontrollable desire can lead an individual to engage in risky illegal behavior to get money to buy cocaine.
People who are addicted to cocaine are prone to use other drugs that act as depressants on the body. This dangerous combination can cause heart failure. The recommended method for people to rid themselves of cocaine addiction is to get medical detox in a supervised environment.
The Sunrise Detox center at Millbury provides medical detox from cocaine with 24/7 monitoring to prevent withdrawal complications, of which the most disturbing are depression and suicide. The psychological withdrawal symptoms of cocaine detox last about two weeks, but this varies with each individual. Millbury Sunrise Detox is a medical detox facility that treats the symptoms of withdrawals under the supervision of medically trained professionals who keep the patient safe as they undergo the withdrawal stage.
