Best Cocaine Rehab Center in Ohio

Cocaine Rehab

Cocaine has a reputation of being a party drug; the key ingredient to making a night out one to remember. But despite movie and TV depictions of the drug, many Americans don’t see cocaine use as a one-time event.

According to the 2019 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, nearly 1.8 million people aged 18 or older are cocaine users, and because it’s a highly addictive drug, it’s safe to assume countless people are physically dependent on it. In 2012 alone, around 658,000 people sought treatment for cocaine addiction.

While other rehabilitation centers stick to one cookie-cutter approach to treatment, we believe every person is different and has unique needs that can be treated through a variety of methods. When you join us at our calming, 120-acre facility, you can expect to work closely with our team to develop a plan that works for you and benefits your future. The caring staff at our drug rehab in Cincinnati is here for you.

What is Cocaine?

What Exactly Is


Derived from the coca plant found in South America, cocaine is a stimulant that is often sold as a white powder or crystals, the latter of which is referred to as “crack.” Cocaine is also referred to as coke, rock, blow, or snow, and is typically snorted, smoked, or injected to give the user feelings of euphoria and exhilaration. This high is relatively fast, lasting a few minutes to an hour, which is why many people feel compelled to use the drug compulsively to keep their high going.

As a stimulant, cocaine enhances the activity that occurs in the central and peripheral nervous system, which temporarily improves mental and physical abilities. Along with euphoria, some initial effects of cocaine include mental alertness, extreme energy, and becoming more talkative. However, cocaine is also associated with an unpleasant comedown that can include symptoms like nausea, paranoia, sensitivity to light and sound, tremors, and irritability.

Over time, long-term cocaine use causes the brain to become desensitized to the amount of dopamine being triggered, and as a result, people need larger dosages of cocaine to get the euphoric feelings they want. As a result, addiction develops, and when use stops negative withdrawal symptoms show up, too. Someone with cocaine addiction will resort to using more cocaine to keep the negative symptoms, like depression and insomnia, at bay.

The Dangers of
Cocaine Addiction.

The most obvious danger of prolonged cocaine abuse is an addiction and the various negative effects that are associated with it. People with drug addictions lose control of their lives, as seeking and using drugs are the only things that govern their thoughts and behaviors. Cocaine addiction can negatively impact a person’s work or school performance, resulting in unemployment or dropping out. It can also isolate people from their loved ones as they withdraw from relationships or sneak around to avoid being caught.

Additional behavioral changes associated with cocaine addiction include:

Along with these behavioral changes, people with cocaine addictions also put their own health in jeopardy. Cocaine abuse harms the kidneys and liver. Prolonged use also has been known to cause high blood pressure, strokes, and seizures, which can be deadly if left untreated.

Overdose is always a risk for people who have drug addictions, including cocaine addiction. In 2018 alone, nearly 15,000 people died of a cocaine-related overdose. Overdosing on cocaine can cause heart attacks and cardiac arrest. People with cocaine addictions also frequently mix cocaine with alcohol and heroin to produce a stronger high, which can also increase the risk of overdose.
