Cocaine Addiction Treatment Programme

The rise in cocaine abuse in Ireland and the UK over the past decade has affected all levels of society, and a number of high profile cases among professionals have highlighted the use of cocaine as a stimulant in the workplace. Individuals and their families, colleagues and employers will all be affected. Cocaine is an extremely addictive drug.Cocaine reduces attention, memory, concept formation and mental flexibility.

Cocaine addiction is a biopsychosocial illness where biological, psychological and social factors all interact in a complex way. Cocaine addiction needs specialist detoxification and treatment. At Smarmore Castle Private Clinic we treat people and their families affected by alcohol and drugs. Our medical team, led by our Consultant Psychiatrist, ensures that each individual undergoes a rapid, comfortable detox that is specific to their needs.

Cocaine Detox Withdrawal Symptoms

Mental withdrawal symptoms, rather than physical, are typical of cocaine withdrawal, although there are also risks for those with a history of fits, high blood pressure or heart disease. While cocaine increases alertness and energy, during detox the person experiences a cocaine “crash”. This causes fatigue, energy loss, mood swings, insomnia and restlessness. Intense cocaine cravings occur along with anxiety, paranoia, depression and occasionally suicidal thoughts.

Cocaine withdrawal symptoms are best treated by a medical team in a residential clinic setting, in order to avoid relapse. Our cocaine detox approach is also aimed at improving brain function and counteracting the toxic effects of cocaine on the brain. 

Effects of Cocaine on the Brain

Cocaine damages and narrows blood vessels and reduces blood and oxygen flow in the brain. Research shows that cocaine use reduces attention, memory, concept formation and mental flexibility.

“It’s eerie to look inside the brain of a heavy cocaine user. Blood flow is sluggish and abnormal compared to the brain of a non-user. Such an abnormality may underlie memory loss, learning problems, attention deficits and even strokes.” – Harvard University Gazette.

The First Step to Recovery from Cocaine Addiction

Detoxification alone is not enough to stop the compulsion to use cocaine. A combination of cocaine detox, individual care planning and psychotherapy to target cocaine addiction, specialist addiction therapies, education on cocaine and the brain and holistic therapies (all monitored by our experienced and dedicated medical team) will assist a full and abstinent recovery from cocaine addiction.
