It’s important to get treatment from a rehab center for a substance addiction, including cocaine. Landmark Recovery of Indianapolis has cocaine rehab programs specially tailored to all stages of recovery, from detox to therapy to maintaining your sobriety after you leave our rehab center.
Cocaine is a highly addictive substance made from the leaves of the coca plant. There are two basic varieties of cocaine: a white powder and a rock crystal form called crack. Powdered cocaine is usually inhaled through the nose or injected into a vein (after being dissolved in water), while the more potent crack cocaine is smoked to provide a shorter but more intense high. 1 This powerful stimulant drug increases energy, alertness, self-confidence, and feelings of euphoria by producing a buildup of specific neurotransmitters (dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin) in the areas of the brain that regulate pleasure and motivation. 2 Cocaine also elevates blood pressure, heart rate, and respiration and may produce adverse psychological effects that include irritability, aggression, anxiety, panic, paranoia, and hallucinations. 3
Cocaine alters neurological systems associated with pleasure, memory, and decision making and can lead to an addiction after just a few uses. Once you become addicted to cocaine your ability to resist urges becomes impaired, making it much more difficult to quit. 4 Frequent cocaine use also causes you to develop a higher tolerance, meaning that it takes more and more of the drug for you to feel the same effects. Cocaine addiction is particularly dangerous because continued use causes strain on the heart, greatly increasing your risk for stroke, heart attack, and death. 5
Cocaine is used by approximately 2% of Indiana’s population annually, making it one of the most commonly abused illicit drugs in the state. 6 The rate of cocaine use is highest among residents aged 18 to 25, with nearly 7% of young adults in Indiana reporting cocaine use in the past year.Around 2% of Indiana college students are current cocaine users, 7 and 4% of high school students (grades 9-12) in Indiana have used cocaine at least once. 8
Cocaine is one of the most frequently used stimulant drugs among Indiana’s drug rehab center population. In 2019, cocaine was reported as the primary substance of abuse in 1 out of 24 admissions to rehab centers in Indiana. 9
Due to the unique properties of cocaine and the physical changes it makes in the brain, overcoming a cocaine addiction is very difficult. 10 Let us help you break your addiction to cocaine and get on the road to recovery. Landmark Recovery is proud to offer science-backed, evidence-based treatment at our Indianapolis cocaine rehab.
Landmark Recovery of Indianapolis provides various treatment options for individuals suffering from cocaine addiction. We offer a diverse range of cocaine rehab programs, ranging from residential treatment to an intensive outpatient program. Each client is given a personalized treatment plan that is tailored to their specific recovery needs. Treatment methods are chosen based on certain factors that include the length and severity of addiction, family history, and any unique challenges (such as the presence of co-occurring mental health disorders).
Any cocaine treatment at our Indiana drug rehab center must be preceded by detox, the period when all of the chemicals associated with cocaine use are cleared from the body. Most people suffering from cocaine addiction experience withdrawal symptoms during detox, often within as little as a few hours of stopping use. Some of the symptoms associated with cocaine withdrawal include: 11
We recommend finding a cocaine rehab in Indianapolis that offers a medically supervised cocaine detox program to manage the uncomfortable symptoms and potentially dangerous cravings that are associated with cocaine withdrawal. Landmark Recovery’s medical detox program will keep you safe and comfortable throughout the entire detox process. Our trained clinical specialists provide around-the-clock care and support and can administer medications to help ease specific withdrawal symptoms like agitation, anxiety, drowsiness, fatigue, and cravings. 11-13 We will also closely monitor you for any signs of severe depression, a dangerous symptom of cocaine withdrawal that can lead to suicidal thoughts and actions. 11
The therapy phase of cocaine rehab identifies and treats the underlying causes of your addiction. Behavioral therapy, which teaches positive behaviors to replace unhealthy and negative modes of thinking, is one of the most effective treatments for cocaine addiction. 1 Landmark Recovery offers a variety of proven behavioral therapies that will explore the underlying triggers of cocaine addiction and provide you with the life tools needed to overcome your addiction and prevent relapse. Individual and group counseling in our cocaine rehab programs often includes behavioral therapies like cognitive behavioral therapy, contingency management, motivational interviewing, dialectical behavioral therapy, andmotivational enhancement therapy.
The last phase of our Indianapolis cocaine rehab program is aftercare, where we will help facilitate your transition out of treatment and into programs (such as support groups and sober living homes) that will help you continue the lifelong process of recovery by building on the treatment you received.
