Cocaine Addiction Recovery Program in Birmingham
Take Control of Your Life Today
Many people who start using cocaine do so in a social setting. As a popular
party drug, cocaine use is often seen as less dangerous and more glamorous
than it really is. In reality, cocaine is extremely addictive and very
hazardous to the health of users. Using cocaine “one time”
at a party can quickly turn into a habit, and then into a legitimate addiction.
If you have reached that point and recognize you have a problem, you have
taken the first step toward taking control of your life and living in recovery.
We provide effective cocaine addiction treatment in Birmingham. At Impact
Recovery Center, our founders and members of our team have experienced
recovery themselves. We use our firsthand experience and the principles
of the 12 steps of recovery to form our program. Please contact us today
to learn more about our programs and begin your journey toward freedom
from substance abuse.
Effects of Cocaine Abuse
Several negative effects of cocaine abuse are weight loss, paranoia, significant
dental damage, aggression, cardiovascular issues, intravenous diseases,
and even death.
Cocaine is highly addictive. It is likely that a person who uses cocaine
will develop a tolerance to the drug, and require greater quantities to
achieve a high. In the long term, using cocaine can permanently affect
a person’s brain functionality. Often, people who are addicted to
cocaine are unable to experience pleasure when they are not using the
drug. Other effects of long-term cocaine addiction include heart failure,
brain hemorrhage, and the failure of other organs. As users build a tolerance
to cocaine, they also become more susceptible to overdose. A person who
attempts to stop using cocaine on their own will likely experience withdrawal
— symptoms can include restlessness, chills, body pain, anxiety,
and depression. The severe withdrawal symptoms that cocaine causes —
and the difficulty of stopping use — mean that seeking the help
of a professional is crucial.
Effective Treatment for Cocaine Addiction in Birmingham, Alabama
Cocaine is one of the most addictive drugs with overwhelming cravings.
Studies have shown that even after episodes of abstinence that the triggers
to use cocaine can still be crushingly powerful.
To combat the powerful pull of cocaine addiction, we address the inner
causes of substance abuse issues. Rather than teaching our clients how
to avoid triggers, we approach addiction with a focus on changing your
way of thinking so you can encounter triggers without experiencing the
desire to use.
Our Birmingham cocaine rehab program is based on
the 12 steps to recovery. The 12 steps are a traditional method that is known as one of the most
effective ways to address substance abuse issues. We use this method in
our addiction treatment programs, but utilize an accelerated approach
that takes less time than a traditional 12 step program.
Your individualized drug addiction treatment plan will begin with a free consultation with our team. This conversation is an opportunity for us to learn more about you, and for you to learn more about us. We look forward to answering any questions you may have about our program and to guiding you toward the next step in your recovery.
