Cocaine Addiction Rehab in Orange County
Cocaine is a highly addictive drug that is in the stimulant family. It comes in either of two forms- a mixed crack-cocaine base typically referred to as “rock,” or a fine powder form, and can be either snorted or injected, dependent on the form. It is derived from the coca leaf and is native to countries such as Columbia and Peru. It has many street names, and is a Schedule II drug, meaning it is very addictive and highly abused. Typically used recreationally, it can have damaging and long-term effects on the user, both physically and psychologically.

Cocaine can have lasting effects on your body and brain when you’ve indulged in it for a long time. Some of those side effects include chronic and extreme fatigue, cardiac arrest, seizures, and even death. Another effect which is sometimes forgotten is the possibility of contracting HIV or hepatitis from unsafe injection use (injecting with the same needle over and over again, using a friend’s needle, not properly cleaning/sanitizing the injection site).
Withdrawal symptoms can be very uncomfortable when detoxing from cocaine. Some of these symptoms include fatigue, depression, anxiety, and increased paranoia. Dependent on individual parameters and the amount of cocaine typically injected/ingested, the crash from detoxing from cocaine can last hours to even days. Sometimes, transferring to a hospital is required if detox symptoms get too severe to handle. This is why controlled and regulated cocaine detox and rehab is especially important, with trained staff that can make that call when necessary.
