Cocaine Detox at Banyan Delaware
Cocaine is a highly addictive and dangerous drug that is frequently used illegally in the United States. Although it can have immediate euphoric effects, the long-term effects can be devastating and ruin a person’s life. Unfortunately, once people become addicted, they struggle to stop even as they face a variety of negative consequences.
Although scary, the first step to overcoming this addiction is with a cocaine detox. At our Delaware inpatient rehab, we offer patients a medical detox from cocaine that creates a foundation for long-term sobriety.
Cocaine Withdrawal Symptoms & Timeline
Like with most drugs of abuse, a detox from cocaine is usually accompanied by some unpleasant and sometimes even dangerous withdrawal symptoms.
Some common cocaine withdrawal symptoms during the detox process include:
- Shaking or tremors
- Muscle pain
- Increase in appetite
- Insomnia and sleep disturbances
- Mood swings
- Depression and sometimes suicidal idealization
- Cocaine cravings
The severity of these symptoms a user will experience during the cocaine detox process as well as how long they last can vary. They are influenced by several factors including the medical history of the individual, their mental health, other substance abuse, the length of time abusing cocaine, and the usual dosage. Typically, symptoms can begin as soon as hours after use stops. Physical symptoms usually last a few days, but psychological symptoms can be ongoing.
While some people will only experience mild symptoms, it is safer to go to a professional cocaine detox center in case of more serious symptoms as well as to address the underlying psychological issues associated with abuse.
Trusted Delaware Cocaine Detox Center
Detox is not always an easy process, but when completed successfully, it sets the foundation for lasting sobriety. Our Milford medical detox center is designed to make the cocaine detox process as safe and as comfortable as possible for our patients.
Because withdrawal can be unpredictable, patients will be under the constant care and supervision of our experienced and trained rehab staff. This includes medical personal to attend to the physical symptoms of withdrawal as well as therapists to meet the patient’s emotional needs. Together, they will monitor and address withdrawal symptoms throughout the cocaine detox process. Unlike people who try to detox at home, if serious issues arise, our staff is on-hand to address them immediately. Patients will also be given appropriate medication as necessary to ease these symptoms and make them more comfortable.
Another benefit to going to our cocaine detox center is that it provides patients with a more relaxing and comfortable environment to begin treatment. Not only are patients separated from their usual drug triggers, but also, they are able to escape the stressors and distractions of their everyday life to focus for the first time on what truly matters, their sobriety.
After patients complete our cocaine detox program in Milford, they typically transition into a lower level of care where they can focus more heavily on their lingering psychological symptoms as well as the root causes of their substance abuse problem. While detox helps people quit their substance abuse, our other programs at Banyan Delaware help patients find lasting sobriety and work toward a brighter future.
