An addiction to cocaine can negatively affect your life in many ways, from impacting your mental health to risking an overdose, so it’s important to seek help if you’re worried about your own usage or that of a loved one.
When we talk about cocaine it’s usually in one of two forms. Coke is a fine, white powder that’s often snorted, and it’s one of the more popular ways to take cocaine.
However, there has been a rise in the use of crack cocaine, which is made up of small rocks that are smoked. At Asana Lodge we offer treatment for cocaine addiction for users of both coke and crack.
Symptoms of Cocaine Addiction
There are many signs that you or a loved one might have an issue with cocaine use, and this can be physical changes or behavioural ones.
Some physical signs of substance abuse include:
- A fast heart rate or high blood pressure
- Sweating or seeming agitated
- Getting less sleep or suffering from insomnia
- Loss of appetite and associated symptoms such as weight loss
- Suffering a stroke, heart attack or even organ failure
Those who suffer from cocaine dependency may also suffer from worsening mental health, and may show symptoms such as:
- An overabundance of confidence
- Mood swings, agitation and irritability
- Periods of euphoria and great energy
This means that those with cocaine addiction can find their lives difficult to manage. Although they may feel periods of energy and confidence, this can often lead to impulsive, risky behaviour, and cocaine users may make poor decisions during this time.
This can include borrowing or stealing money, being dishonest about your activities, excessive use of porn or using escorts. Using cocaine can also increase the risk of mental health problems as users often neglect their health and are stuck in negative cycles.
Seeking Help For A Cocaine Addiction
Even if you don’t have any of the above symptoms, if you’re worried that you may be suffering from cocaine abuse, then you shouldn’t delay seeking help. People who have a cocaine addiction and need help should reach out as soon as possible, before they develop a higher tolerance to the drug, and the effects of cocaine can put them at risk of heart attacks, strokes or even death.
Choosing Asana Lodge for Treatment
Asana Lodge is set in a beautiful countryside location, near Towcester. It’s a real chance to escape the chaos of life and slow down.
While you may be searching for a local drug treatment centre, staying at Asana Lodge allows you to spend time away from the stresses of life, focus on your recovery and experience care tailored to your needs.
Asana Lodge defies expectations of a recovery centre.
With a focus on luxury, Asana Lodge has been designed to be a discreet and peaceful place to recover. From comfortable, private rooms to chef catered meals, everything is taken care of.
Many people coming to Asana Lodge due to cocaine addiction will go through detox, which means they’ll be dealing with withdrawal symptoms and other side effects. We’ve created a homely, comfortable and inclusive environment to get you through treatment.
In addition to working with people with addictions, our team have experience treating some mental health issues. Many people who take cocaine also suffer from one of these issues, so your treatment options will be designed to take this into account. A combination of individual treatments, such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), and group therapy will often be used.
While you stay at Asana Lodge, we’ll also focus on your physical health. Whether it’s countryside walks, yoga, fitness sessions or massage therapy, we’ll make sure you return home feeling refreshed and ready to get on with life.
Personalised Cocaine Addiction Treatment
No two cases of cocaine addiction are the same. There are often complex reasons why people become addicted, there are different forms of the drug including powder cocaine and crack, and users may also have alcohol addictions or be regularly using other drugs.
Asana Lodge treats every client as an individual.
Working with you, we’ll create a personalised treatment plan. It won’t simply look at the addiction, but focus on you as a whole person, body and mind.
Often beginning with an assisted withdrawal, your care will then follow with intense therapy including industry-leading treatments such as virtual reality and time spent rebalancing in the Satori wellness chair.
Treatment doesn’t stop when you leave our centre. We know that in the long-term there’s always the risk of relapse. Asana Lodge offers a year of free aftercare once you leave our centre. The first year after rehab is often the hardest, and there’s always the risk of relapsing, which carries a risk of overdosing if you haven’t taken cocaine for a while.
That’s why we ensure you have a local support system in place. Because cocaine is such an addictive drug, users can often find they have cravings for a long time after rehab, and if you feel the urge to return to using drugs, then it’s important to have someone to turn to.
A Confidential Service
Many people who contact us about drug rehab are concerned about the stigma involved with treatment. You can be assured that all your information is confidential and that our staff will offer high levels of discretion.
By staying at Asana Lodge, you’re away from home and have the privacy of a countryside location, ideal for those who need to recover away from the public eye.
