Cocaine Addiction

What We Treat

Cocaine Addiction Treatment in Utah

Cocaine causes a short-lived, intense high that is immediately followed by the opposite—intense depression, edginess and a craving for more of the drug. People who use it often don’t eat or sleep properly. They can experience greatly increased heart rate, muscle spasms and convulsions. The drug can make people feel paranoid, angry, hostile and anxious—even when they aren’t high.

Regardless of how much of the drug is used or how frequently, cocaine & crack cocaine increases the risk that the user will experience a heart attack, stroke, seizure or respiratory (breathing) failure, any of which can result in sudden death.

Smoking crack further presents a series of health risks. Crack is often mixed with other substances that create toxic fumes when burned. As crack smoke does not remain potent for long, crack pipes are generally very short. This often causes cracked and blistered lips, known as “crack lip,” from users having a very hot pipe pressed against their lips.

What to Expect from Entering a Cocaine Rehab in Utah

Many people are reluctant to go into rehab. They may be hesitant due to stigmas, or they may not know how they will handle their personal life while they are away. Others may hold off on getting the help they require because they are not sure what to expect.

This article will provide you with all you need to know about entering a cocaine rehab in Utah so you feel confident taking the first step to recovery. 

Detox: Detox is typically the first stage of rehab. When a person steps into our facility, the priority is to rid their system of toxins to break the physical habit.

When a person detoxes, they experience withdrawal symptoms. Their body is so used to having the illicit substance in its system that it can’t function properly without it. It begins exhibiting unwanted physical and mental reactions as it adjusts to sobriety. 

Our rehab provides a medical staff that oversees the detox process. They keep the patient as comfortable as possible to ensure relapse doesn’t occur. 

Therapy: After rehab is completed, the patient moves on to therapy. The right rehab will work out a customized plan that integrates treatments that are best suited to a patient’s needs. These may include a mixture of traditional and alternative methods. 

Often, a dual diagnosis approach is taken. This addresses the addiction and its underlying causes. It is the best approach for long-term recovery. 

Aftercare: After therapy is completed, the patient moves on to aftercare. They continue therapy to get the support they need to maintain sobriety after returning to the “real world.”

In addition to this three-part therapy approach, patients are also provided with meals that offer optimal nutrition to increase wellbeing. They are taken for outings that connect them with nature and boost socialization with others. They also get some valuable alone time that they can use for quiet reflection and self-healing. 

Cocaine Treatment in Nature

Our Cocaine Rehab in Utah

Many facilities offer treatment for cocaine addiction, but Spirit Mountain takes an approach that sets us apart. Here are some of the unique features we offer. 

Great Location: Our center is located in scenic and peaceful Eden Valley in a luxurious yet charming home-like property. Patients can take advantage of the atmosphere to engage in nature therapy which has been found to be helpful in the recovery process. They can enjoy experiential treatments such as paddleboarding, skiing, basketball, paddleball, meditation, yoga, and more. 

Men Only Program: Our program focuses on men only. We believe this is the best approach as it allows most patients to heal without the distractions of possibly developing a romantic relationship. It provides a more comfortable environment for sharing. It is also best suited to patients whose addictions may be tied to trauma that involves the opposite sex. 

Inpatient/Outpatient Available: Individuals who require rehab must choose between inpatient and outpatient treatment. Inpatient may be best for those with serious addictions who require 24/7 care. Outpatient is a good option for people who can not afford to take a lot of time away from work or family. Spirit Mountain offers a variety of inpatient and outpatient options so you can get the individualized care you require. 

Dual Diagnosis Customized Treatment: At Spirit Mountain, we take a dual diagnosis approach that simultaneously addresses the addiction and its underlying cause. We integrate a customized approach that incorporates the treatments we feel are best suited to each patient’s needs. We believe this is the best strategy for long-term healing. 

We Treat All Kinds of Addiction: We treat a variety of addictions, including prescription opioids, cocaine, heroin, marijuana, and alcohol, ensuring you get the care you need. 

What Are the Long-Term Effects of Crack Cocaine Abuse?

In addition to the usual risks associated with cocaine abuse, crack cocaine users may experience severe respiratory problems, including coughing, shortness of breath, lung damage and bleeding. Long-term effects of crack cocaine addiction include severe damage to the heart, liver and kidneys. Users are more likely to have infectious diseases. Continued daily use causes sleep deprivation and loss of appetite, resulting in malnutrition. Smoking crack cocaine also can cause aggressive and paranoid behavior. As crack cocaine interferes with the way the brain processes chemicals, one needs more and more of the drug just to feel “normal.” Those who become addicted to crack cocaine (as with most other drugs) lose interest in other areas of life.

Coming down from the drug causes severe depression, which becomes deeper and deeper after each use. This can get so severe that a person will do almost anything to get the drug—even commit murder. And if he or she can’t get crack cocaine, the depression can get so intense it can drive the addict to suicide. Experienced cocaine rehab centers are aware of the mental health aspect of addiction, and address these co-occurring disorders during as part of their addiction treatment programs.
