What is Cocaine Detox?
Cocaine is an illegal stimulant that is derived from the coca plant in South America. It typically comes in the form of a white powder. However, cocaine can be manufactured synthetically in a crystal or liquid form. Cocaine can be injected, snorted, or smoked – all methods are harmful and addictive. With the South Florida population typically soaking up the sunshine year-round, cocaine is a popular drug of choice for staying awake to party or work, and curb your appetite to stay bikini ready; all of which leads to the need for cocaine detox in Delray Beach, Florida.
Cocaine has become a popular drug choice in the “party scene”. Commonly mistaken as a pick-me-up for a night out, this drug is dangerously destructive on your brain and your body. Cocaine enters the body and quickly travels into the bloodstream, causing a quick flood of exhilaration and interrupting the natural flow of messages from the brain to the body. The brain feels a rush of dopamine, a feel-good neurotransmitter that creates a false sense of euphoria, alertness, and energy. The rush of dopamine causes the brain to become addicted to the pleasurable feelings it is experiencing. Over time, the brain requires increased amounts of cocaine to achieve the same exciting rush, thus leading to a cocaine dependency.
Cocaine is dangerous on its own, but most often it is cut with other drugs and chemicals that destroy brain matter and internal organs. A study from John Hopkins University concluded that high doses of cocaine causes brain cells to kill themselves.
There are many serious risks associated with cocaine addiction:
Accelerated heart rate
Addiction takes over a person’s will power and rational thought. Addiction is physical, emotional, and psychological. As tolerance builds with addiction, the body signals its need for more with uncomfortable and painful withdrawal symptoms. When the need is not being met, the body experiences a crash, including lack of energy, increased anxiety, and intense physiological breakdown.
The addict in withdrawal is likely to experience:
Increased sweating and pulse changes
