Arizona Cocaine Rehab
Successfully Overcome Your Cocaine Addiction at Our Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility in Prescott
Cocaine—also known as “coke,” “blow,” or “yayo”—is highly addictive and powerful stimulant made from the coca plant that is indigenous in South America. The drug has been portrayed in movies and television shows as a high-class substance used by celebrities and the wealthy. Although cocaine produces feelings of euphoria, increased energy, and talkativeness, continuous use can not only lead to addiction but also accidental overdose and death.

What Does Cocaine Rehab Involve?
Cocaine treatment considerations during all stages and varieties of cocaine addiction recovery will vary depending on the severity of the addiction, the frequency of use, the quantity and purity of cocaine used, and whether the drug was used in combination with other substances. Cocaine rehab at our Arizona treatment center involves a bio-psycho-social approach employing evidence-based methodologies, psychology, holistic and experiential therapies, and preparation to re-enter the world clean and sober.
Dangers of Cocaine Use
Cocaine is known internationally as one of the most dangerous narcotics. The substance causes instantaneous and dramatic changes in the user’s mind and body. Some people with a sensitivity to cocaine may experience immediate side effects after one dose that require hospitalization. Others who become addicted to cocaine slowly and often unknowingly cause gradual damage to their entire bodies.
Cocaine use can lead to:
- Respiratory problems: Like any other type of smoking, smoking crack cocaine can increase a person's risk of developing a wide range of respiratory issues, including asthma, pneumonia, and even certain types of lung cancer.
- Internal organ damage: Snorting and ingesting cocaine can wreak havoc on a person's internal organs, including bowel decay, deterioration of nasal passages, liver failure, kidney failure, irregular heartbeat, heart attacks, and the shrinking of grey matter in the brain.
- Psychological impairment: Cocaine use can lead to intense anxiety, paranoia, restlessness, and irritability. In some cases, cocaine users can experience hallucinations. Memory loss is also common.
- Malnourishment: Cocaine can act as an appetite suppressant, causing users to eat less than their body needs to stay healthy. As a result, it is not uncommon for cocaine users to experience considerable weight loss.
- Blood diseases: Users who inject cocaine intravenously put themselves at risk of contracting various blood borne illnesses if the needles used are not properly sterilized or shared with other people. This may include HIV, hepatitis C, and other serious infections.
- Sexually-transmitted diseases: Cocaine lowers a person's inhibitions and alter's judgment, making them more prone to engaging in risky sexual behavior.
- Overdose: As a person develops a tolerance to cocaine with use, they require increasingly larger doses to achieve the same high as they once did. This can quickly increase their risk of a potentially-fatal overdose.
It is so important that you address your cocaine habit as soon as possible. What might only seem like a hobby can actually be a deadly addiction before you know it . Our cocaine rehabilitation professionals at Decision Point Center are standing by to assist you. We offer moral support and careful medical care to give you the strength to break away from cocaine addiction.

Signs & Symptoms of Cocaine Abuse
Cocaine abuse is not always easy to spot. A person struggling with cocaine addiction may hide their drug use or deny the existence of a problem, making it crucial for those close to them to keep a watchful eye for certain key signs and symptoms. These behavioral and physical symptoms will vary depending on the severity and length of addiction, as well as the method of consumption (snorting, smoking, injecting, or orally ingesting).
Common signs of cocaine abuse include:
- Intense periods of excitement, followed by intense lows
- Unexplained paranoia or mistrust
- Sensitivity to light or sound
- Restlessness and concentration problems
- Dilated pupils
- Elevated blood pressure and body temperature
- Muscle spasms and twitching
- Reduced appetite
- Sudden, unexplained money problems
- Decreased performance at work or school
If a person has been snorting cocaine, they may exhibit the following symptoms:
- Diminished sense of smell
- Frequent nosebleeds
- Constant runny nose
- Difficulty swallowing
Smoking cocaine can be identified by the following signs and symptoms:
- Persistent coughing or asthma attacks
- Frequent respiratory infections
- Smoking paraphernalia such as glass pipes, broken light bulbs, aluminum cans, and straws and tin foil
- Blisters and burns on the lips and fingers
A person who injects cocaine may exhibit these symptoms:
- Small needle marks on the arms
- Damaged or collapsed veins
Finally, orally ingesting cocaine can be identified by these signs:

How to Help a Loved One Addicted to Cocaine
There are few things more painful than witnessing someone you care about struggle with cocaine addiction. While it may be uncomfortable, it is crucial that you speak up and urge them to seek treatment. You could be saving their life.
If your son, daughter, parent, friend, or other loved one is addicted to cocaine, follow these steps:
- Do your research ahead of time and learn as much as you can about cocaine addiction so you can better understand their struggles and empathize with them.
- Do not delay. Do not wait for them to hit "rock bottom" before urging them to seek treatment. The sooner their addiction is treated, the better.
- Approach them from a place of compassion and avoid being judgmental in your words and tone. Shaming them for their struggles could have an adverse effect and make them more resistant to seeking help.
- Be prepared for the possibility that they may react negatively. They may not realize the extent of their addiction, or they may outright deny they have a problem.
- If they seek help, stay involved during their treatment. Be the support system they need when they need it most.
- If your loved one refuses to acknowledge an obvious problem, consider staging an intervention with the help of a trained professional.
