Cocaine addiction: Symptoms, family & health


What are the symptoms of cocaine addiction?

Cocaine addiction is a serious problem that affects a significant number of people every year. The symptoms of cocaine addiction can vary widely depending on the individual’s level of use and how long they have been addicted. Some symptoms of cocaine addiction include:

  • Intense cravings for the drug
  • Increased agitation and restlessness
  • Extreme mood changes
  • Erratic behaviour

Users may also experience physical symptoms such as:

  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Respiratory issues

Long-term use of cocaine can also lead to chronic health conditions such as:

  • Hypertension
  • Heart disease
  • Damage to the liver, kidneys and lungs

If you or someone you know is struggling with cocaine addiction, it’s important to seek professional help as soon as possible. With the right support, it is possible to overcome cocaine addiction and reclaim a healthy, fulfilling life. Contact us online confidentially.


The health risks of cocaine to you and your family

Cocaine addiction can have a devastating impact on families. Not only do loved ones suffer as they watch someone they care about struggle with addiction, they may also be affected financially, emotionally and socially.

They may suffer from the consequences of their loved one’s actions, such as damaged relationships, loss of employment or even legal issues.

Emotionally, family members may experience feelings of shock, guilt, anger, and sadness. Socially, they may be affected by the stigma and shame associated with drug addiction. It is important for families to seek support and resources to cope with the impact of cocaine addiction and to encourage their loved ones to get help.


What is cocaine and why is it addictive?

Cocaine is a powerful stimulant drug that affects the central nervous system. The scientific name of cocaine is benzoylmethylecgonine. The drug is usually sold in a white powder form that is typically snorted through the nostrils. Cocaine works by rapidly increasing levels of dopamine in the brain, resulting in a euphoric high. However, this high is short-lived and leads to a crash afterward and long-term health problems. While cocaine may provide a temporary escape from reality, its consequences can be detrimental.

Your stay

Experienced support from our trusted team

Addiction to cocaine alone does not require a medically-managed detoxification, as the body is able to suddenly stop using cocaine without the possibility of serious withdrawal symptoms. Although a detox may not be required, at Broadway Lodge, you will still be supported by our 24/7 team of nurses and health care assistants and they will help you to manage any symptoms you may experience as a result of stopping cocaine use.

Your stay at Broadway Lodge will involve partaking in a powerful programme of therapeutic sessions that include group therapy every day, private sessions with your focal counsellor, educational lectures, interactive workshops, personalised assignments, 12 step work, relapse prevention sessions, ex-resident shares, Cocaine Anonymous meetings and other activities to nurture your mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.

Our experienced counsellors and support team will help you to understand your addiction, heal wounds and painful memories, build self-worth and learn to cope with challenges in life without cocaine. You will begin a process of change and growth with us and we will prepare you to continue your recovery journey after leaving treatment. While you can receive our support for any length of time between 4 weeks and 6 months, we recommend a 12 week stay as the ideal duration to gain a solid foundation to your recovery.

If you are drinking dependently alongside cocaine use, or using other drugs with cocaine, you may require a detoxification as the first stage of treatment. Our 24/7 specialist medical team of nurses and health care assistants deliver fully medically managed detoxification, considered the safest way to detox. You will be monitored and looked after by the team throughout. Alongside detox, you will be able to start addressing the psychological part of addiction while your body adjusts to abstinence, with a therapeutic programme led by a counsellor in a smaller group of no more than nine peers.
