Cocaine Addiction Recovery in Richmond

Through our treatment program, we’ll make sure you can live beyond your addiction through lasting recovery and can step back into the life you were meant to live.

What is cocaine?

Cocaine is a white powdered stimulant drug that’s primarily snorted, with a crystalline analog called crack cocaine. Cocaine comes from the leaves of the coca tree in South and Central America and is a substance that’s been used for quite a long time among indigenous peoples, including the Inca, and locals to treat various ailments and altitude-related illnesses in the Andes Mountains. Since ancient times, the coca leaf has become modern-day cocaine, achieving black market saturation as one of the most popular drugs in the world. The DEA has cocaine listed as a Schedule II drug, as it’s become a very lucrative drug throughout the Americas for your average street dealer and Mexican cartel alike.

Cocaine is easy to become addicted to. Coke is a drug that must be binged in exponentially larger doses to draw out a longer-lasting high in a single session. It induces dopamine production and causes pleasure and euphoria in the user. Crack, a nastier street version of cocaine that induces very intense and fast-acting effects, received its name due to the sound it makes when heated in a crack pipe. The effects of crack can be even more severe, and an overdose is much easier to achieve.

Cocaine use has many health risks. For long-time users, it can cause high blood pressure and permanently damage the cardiovascular system. Snorted cocaine can erode the nasal passages and induce cardiac events, like heart attacks. Crack can cause severe weight and hair loss in users.

Cocaine use in the US and Virginia

In the US, the overdose death rate for cocaine users was 4 and a half out of every 100,000 users. This number is significantly up from pre-2013 when it was less than half of that number. Cocaine and opioid co-overdoses are on the rise at an alarming rate.

In Virginia, 1.8% of all residents 12 years of age and older had used cocaine at least once in 2019. The largest group of coke users were the 18- to 25-year-old group, with 5.2% having used it at least once that same year. The message that cocaine is risky and dangerous has successfully saturated the population of Virginia, where 71 out of 100 understand that there are significant bodily and legal costs involved with regular use.

In Virginia, 7.01% of residents over the age of 12 have some form of a substance use disorder, and 6.64% need treatment for a SUD but don’t seek it out. This is where Landmark Recovery of Richmond comes in.

Cocaine addiction recovery

Cocaine dependence requires good treatment and Landmark Recovery’s addiction recovery centers can help get you back on your feet. We offer multiple methods of treatment and rehab, including residential and outpatient paths. In addition to that, we also offer medication-assisted therapy for severe cases of withdrawal during cocaine detox so that recovery is easier for the patient.

Oftentimes patients with severe addiction are at a higher risk for relapsing, but we make sure that our national alumni program is available for all patients leaving our care and going back out into the world. This is one way we can assure that continued education and mentoring are available. Therapy and counseling are available to patients when they’re here at our facilities to treat the root causes in addition to the health effects of their drug use. Our rehab and treatment aim to be as effective as possible.
