Cocaine Treatment in Oklahoma City

Finding the right treatment center for a cocaine addiction is an essential step for achieving lifelong sobriety. Landmark Recovery offers Oklahoma City a local option of evidence-based cocaine treatment programs.

What is Cocaine?

Cocaine is a powerfully addictive stimulant drug produced from the leaves of Erythroxylon coca, a coca plant native to South America. 1 The two most common forms of the drug are powdered cocaine and rock crystal (also called crack cocaine). Cocaine acts by raising levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine in the brain, providing the user with increased energy and feelings that can range from pleasure to intense euphoria. 2 Blood pressure, heart rate, and respiration are also elevated by cocaine use, and high doses or chronic use can result in serious health complications, overdose, and death.

Regular cocaine use alters the production of dopamine in the brain, making it difficult to feel pleasure without the drug. 3 This usually results in increased cocaine abuse, which can quickly lead to dependency and addiction.

Cocaine addiction in Oklahoma

Cocaine poses a significant threat to Oklahoma. Despite being an illicit substance, there is no shortage of cocaine throughout the state. According to law enforcement, both powdered cocaine and crack cocaine are widely available in the cities of Tulsa and Oklahoma City. 4

The National Survey on Drug Use and Health reports that 2% of Oklahoma residents have used cocaine in the past year. Cocaine use was highest among young adults, aged 18 to 25, with almost 6% reporting use in the past year. 5 The use of cocaine is also prevalent among teenagers in Oklahoma. At least 1 in 25 Oklahoma high school students (grades 9-12) have used cocaine at least once in their lifetime, 6 and nearly 1% of high school sophomores and seniors currently use cocaine. 7

Cocaine addiction is a major issue across the country, including here in the Sooner State. According to the Treatment Episode Data Set maintained by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, in the last year cocaine accounted for 2% of all admissions to drug addiction treatment facilities in Oklahoma. 8

Cocaine Treatment Program in Oklahoma City

The first step to recovery from cocaine addiction is detoxification, also commonly referred to as detox. This is the process of eliminating all addictive substances from your body and brain following the cessation of cocaine use.

Unfortunately, when cocaine is suddenly removed from the bloodstream many people will begin to experience symptoms of cocaine withdrawal. Most symptoms taper off within about a week, although intense cravings can persist for several months. Withdrawal symptoms typically start as early as a few hours after the last dose and include: 9

  • Restlessness
  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety
  • Irritability and agitation
  • Generalized discomfort
  • Nervousness
  • Lack of energy
  • Headaches
  • Impaired concentration
  • Increased appetite
  • Paranoia
  • Intense drug cravings
  • Unpleasant dreams
  • Anhedonia (impaired ability to experience pleasure)
  • Seizures
  • Muscle tremors

Due to the intense emotional and physical discomfort caused by cocaine withdrawal, treatment for most people should begin with medically supervised detox at our cocaine treatment center in Oklahoma City.

At Landmark Recovery, you have the opportunity to undergo cocaine detox treatment in OKC at a safe and secure environment with around-the-clock supervision by trained medical professionals. We will closely monitor you for depression and potential signs of suicidal thoughts and actions, the most dangerous symptoms that may be experienced during cocaine withdrawal. We may also administer any of a variety of different medications that can be useful in offsetting some of the more uncomfortable symptoms of withdrawal, including intense craving, anxiety, and insomnia.

Following medical cocaine detox at Landmark Recovery, you will have the ability to seamlessly transition into science-based, evidence-backed cocaine addiction treatment. Our treatment programs in OKC, which typically consist of a combination of individual and group counseling, behavioral therapies, mindfulness and meditation, and recreational activities, will address the underlying or root cause of your cocaine addiction to prevent the risk of future relapse.
