Cocaine Addiction Treatment
Cocaine Addiction Help in Essex & London
Cocaine is an incredibly powerful stimulant drug, and highly addictive. People in South America have chewed and/or ingested coca leaves which are the source of cocaine, simply for their stimulant effects.
Over 100 years ago, cocaine hydrochloride was isolated from the plant and was actually used in tonics and elixirs to treat a variety of illnesses. It was even used by surgeons before synthetic anaesthetic was invented.
Research however, has since shown that cocaine is a powerfully addictive drug with mind-altering abilities and can eventually alter the brain structure and function when used repeatedly.
What Is Cocaine Addiction?
While cocaine is very addictive, it can often be difficult to recognise an actual addiction and hard to know when you need cocaine addiction help. Some obvious signs of a cocaine addiction are craving and using the drug despite the negative impact it has on the users life.
When it comes to a cocaine addiction, many don’t realise that it’s actually the psychological addiction that can be the hardest part to overcome.
For a frequent user, a dependence will develop and lead them craving cocaine in order to feel ‘normal’. Unfortunately, once a dependence has developed, so too will a tolerance along with withdrawal symptoms when the user hasn’t had their ‘fix’.
Signs & Symptoms of Cocaine Addiction
While any use of cocaine would be considered abuse for the simple fact that it’s an illegal substance, it may not necessarily be an addiction. Once a cocaine addiction develops however, it can become extremely hard to stop. Despite the addictive nature of cocaine being widely known, thousands are still drawn to it and continue to use it with often complete disregard to the negative impact it has on their lives.
The question is, how can you recognise an addiction to cocaine? Here are some of the signs and symptoms you should look for. They range from psychological to physical and even behavioral:
- Poor decision making
- Mood swings
- Rapid heart rate
- Dilated pupils
- Heart attack
- Breathing problems
- Impulsive actions
- Risky behaviour
- Decreased appetite
- Intense cravings
- Heightened alertness
