Cocaine is a frequently abused substance which can be snorted, smoked, or injected. Those who abuse cocaine and try to stop on their own often experience intense cravings for the substance and relapse often occurs as their anxiety levels increase. Cocaine impacts the brains neurotransmitters and users often seek the stimulating effect to battle an underlying depressive disorder. Repeated use can trigger stimulant-induced paranoid psychosis. Often users will combine cocaine with other substances in order to counteract the stimulating effects and this compounds the dangers associated with continued use.
At PACE we realize that there are many reasons why a person picks up hard drugs to begin with, therefore we don’t apply a single treatment modality to all clients. We take a holistic approach to their treatment needs, crafting individualized treatment plans that our clinicians feel will help clients stay sober for the long haul. Treatment at Pace’s California addiction program can include, but is not limited to individual and group therapy, educational workshops, a family program, life and vocational skills, relapse prevention and 12 step recovery.
