It is quite clear that life never stops for anyone, but a stopped life can get back to its track if it is directed in a proper way. The same can happen with addicts whose life get stuck into difficulties and troubles and can take a new turn when they show their back to addiction and overcome it in an effective manner. To put the life back on track, an addict needs to go through a treatment process that is conducted by addiction experts and professionals at established and reputed rehabilitation clinics.
A rehabilitation centre or rehab is a type of medical facility where addicts with their dependence on psychoactive substance are recruited for a limited time period and are released after the successful completion on their treatment procedure. It is a place where drug, cocaine and heroine addicts or alcoholics get right treatment under a medically-suited environment supported by medical professional and experts such as psychotherapists, psychiatrists, yoga teachers, behavioural specialists, instructors and consultants. There, addicts are kept for a period of between 4 and 12 weeks or on the basis of their mental and physical conditions. There, all addicts are treated with different structured programmes designed to help addicts come out of their present mental illness and conditions and join the social stream again with confidence and saying no to cocaine.
We can’t identify whether someone is in the grip of addiction or not until we came across some symptoms. Every disease is identified on the basis of some symptoms and signs. Once a sign or symptom occurs, we come to know what is wrong. The most commonly abused stimulant or recreational drug called “cocaine” owns powerful psychological addictive properties that put its negative effects on the mind and body of an addict. Paranoia, depression, exhaustion, anxiety, itching, mood swings, irritability, fatigue, insomnia, nausea and vomiting are some of the common symptoms through which one can understand the severity and deadliness of the addiction. All these signs show the heavy dependence of an addict on cocaine that also reflects in his/her physical as well as mental behaviour.
It is nothing but the cocaine withdrawal syndrome that directly points to the immediate need to addiction advice and treatment. Timely diagnosis and treatment of cocaine addiction depends on the occurrence of symptoms. Withdrawal symptoms, therapy and medication are the three basic points that open ways for the effective and result-oriented cocaine treatment programme. A 12-step programme, CBT therapy, MT therapy and medications such as Acetylcysteine, Baclofen, Bupropion, Vanoxerine and Vigabatrin make a difference to the cocaine addiction treatment.
