Cocaine Detox in Las Vegas

Cocaine Detox in Las Vegas

Different drugs require different approaches to detox. Know what to expect from a cocaine detox program and get the right treatment for your cocaine addiction at our Las Vegas cocaine detox center.

What are the effects of cocaine use?

Cocaine is an illegal stimulant that is extracted from the South American coca plant. The most common forms of the drug are a fine white powder, that can be snorted, rubbed on the gums, or dissolved in water and injected, and a pinkish crystallized solid called crack that is smoked in a pipe. 1

Cocaine increases dopamine and adrenaline levels in the brain and provides the user with feelings of euphoria, increased energy, mental alertness, self-confidence, and boosted sociability. 2 Cocaine also causes a host of negative side effects that include: 3

  • Elevated body temperature
  • Increased heart rate
  • High blood pressure
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Restlessness
  • Irritability
  • Agitation
  • Anxiety
  • Panic
  • Paranoia
  • Tremors
  • Abdominal pain
  • Muscle twitches
  • Headache

Long-term cocaine abuse can lead to severe health issues such as dramatic weight loss and malnourishment, bowel decay, sexual dysfunction, sleeping difficulties, lung and heart problems, movement disorders, memory loss, and blood infections. 4 Repeated cocaine use also increases the risk of seizures, stroke, heart attack, coma, and death.

Cocaine is a very addictive drug due to the way it interacts with the reward system of the brain. 5 Over time, cocaine alters the structure and function of the brain so that it becomes unable to produce normal levels of dopamine on its own. 6 People who abuse cocaine find it difficult to feel pleasure in the absence of the drug, and eventually the brain starts craving the drug because it becomes the only source of pleasure.

Cocaine addiction in Nevada

In 2018, the percentage of adults using cocaine in Nevada ranked among the top 10 adult-using states in the nation and above the total usage nationwide. 7 As for youth, the percentage of Nevada high school students using cocaine, and with an expectation of lifetime drug use, was higher than the national average. 8 Additionally, cocaine has been linked to a rise in fentanyl-related deaths in Clark County. 9

Cocaine detox center in Las Vegas

The first step in recovery from cocaine addiction is detox, a process that involves flushing out all traces of cocaine from a patient’s system. With Nevada ranking furthest-behind nationwide in offering psychiatric resources, 10 Landmark Recovery of Las Vegas’ detox center exists first to provide a safe environment for managing the symptoms of cocaine withdrawal and consequently to offer ongoing treatment for the best chance at achieving long-term sobriety.

People who develop a dependence on cocaine will go through withdrawal when they quit using the drug. Because cocaine is such a fast-acting drug, most individuals quickly crash and begin experiencing withdrawal symptoms within a few hours of their last dose. Unlike the severe physical symptoms, such as vomiting and shaking, that are experienced during withdrawal from other drugs like alcohol and opioids, the symptoms of cocaine withdrawal are predominantly psychological and include: 10

  • Restlessness
  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety
  • Irritability
  • Agitation
  • Nervousness
  • Depression
  • Poor concentration
  • Increased appetite
  • Paranoia
  • Insomnia
  • Nightmares/vivid dreams
  • Cocaine craving
  • Headache

Getting through cocaine detox can be a grueling process, and if withdrawal is not properly handled it can result in serious health complications as well as a much higher risk of relapse. Some symptoms of cocaine withdrawal, such as severe depression can lead to suicidal thoughts and actions, can become life-threatening if not properly treated. 10 Due to the significant risks associated with cocaine withdrawal, when undergoing cocaine detox, we highly recommend doing so under medical supervision at a professional cocaine detox center.

Landmark Recovery of Las Vegas offers a cocaine detox program that can safely guide you through withdrawal from cocaine. Our experienced clinical specialists provide 24/7 medical monitoring and will promptly treat any health concerns that may arise during your cocaine detox. We also provide medications and other evidence-based therapies to help reduce intense cravings and manage specific cocaine withdrawal symptoms such as agitation, anxiety, drowsiness, and fatigue. 10

Once cocaine detox is completed, and you are medically stabilized, you will be ready to enter the therapy phase of recovery. Landmark Recovery of Las Vegas’ personalized cocaine treatment integrates individual and group counseling with a variety of proven behavioral therapies, such as cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavior therapy, to help identify the underlying causes of cocaine addiction and develop the positive thought patterns and coping skills needed to prevent relapse and maintain long-lasting sobriety. 11
