Drug Rehab Treatment

Clinical Trials

Lab tests against cocaine on mice and primates have so far been successful. Researchers in the Cornell Medical College expect human trials to begin by the end of next year. But research elsewhere suggests that addiction is more of a psychological issue than physical. Also, rendering cocaine ineffective to the human body could pose problems for major medical practices, such as surgeries and operations that use anesthesia. Cocaine has the same qualities as some of the drugs used as local anesthetics licodaine and Novocain.

Why Seek Professional Help

Treating cocaine addiction is not easy. Cocaine abuse alters brain structures, including areas involved in pleasure, motivation, cognition, and short-term memory. And with time, the damage to the part of the brain involved in exercising impulse control is further damaged. This condition can only be reversed with intensive treatment, which involves the patient to take residence at a rehab facility.

Quality cocaine addiction treatment centers in Port St Lucie have experience and a well-trained staff that provides expert care focused on the overall health of the patient. Along with detoxification, addiction treatment for cocaine also involves therapy sessions where even family members can be involved. Since addiction damages relationships, these sessions help re-build the addicts confidence so that he or she can have a life that is free from cocaine.

Prescription medications include, but are not limited to: Xanax. All of these drugs are physically and emotionally addictive and should be treated with great respect. These medications need to be used as prescribed in order to avoid an addiction. If you find yourself abusing the medication, please contact your prescribing physician immediately or call the staff at Affordable Rehab of Port St Lucie .

It is rare that the person abusing prescription medication began taking these medications with the idea in mind of becoming an addict. In general terms, the person takes the medication to "feel better" physically, hoping they will gain some relief from their pain. Another effect of the medication is it provides people a feeling of "well being", which they have been lacking. In an attempt to reduce the pain even further and enhance the feeling of "well being", the individual begins to take additional medication. What happens is a tolerance to the drug is developed, so the person requires more and more medication. Soon, the feeling of "well being" can not be achieved, the pain although diminished is still present, but an addiction to the medication is now present.

If addicted, never discontinue the use of prescription medication on your own. There can be severe medical and psychological consequences. Please call Affordable Rehab of Port St Lucie at call (772) 202-3651 and we will assist you in locating a quality healthcare professional or detox program.

Treatment for Cocaine Addiction

Treatment of cocaine addiction in Port St Lucie can be highly difficult since it is very easy to relapse. Additionally there are currently no FDA approved medications for cocaine abuse. Withdrawal from cocaine can lead to use of other substitute substances such as alcohol, Valium or anti-anxiety medications in order to alleviate the symptoms. This method is not recommended as it simply shifts dependency from one substance to another. Cocaine addiction treatment must be done under the supervision of a professional medical practitioner and with the support of friends and family.
