Cocaine is a stimulant drug. It increases energy, alertness, heart rate, blood pressure and breathing. After snorting, smoking or injecting the drug, a person may feel more confident and talkative than usual. Repeated use of cocaine can easily lead to a cocaine addiction. A person who is addicted to the drug will usually exhibit signs and symptoms of cocaine use. The symptoms can include unusual behaviour and an array of physical problems. The euphoric rush of pleasure and energy a person gets from cocaine doesn’t last long. The high from snorting the drug disappears after an hour or so. As the cocaine wears off, euphoria may give way to anxiety, agitation and depression. Restlessness, insomnia and fatigue are also typical of a cocaine crash, or comedown. Some people may feel and act paranoid.

Cocaine addiction is a disease that affects people of all walks of life. Experts have tried to pinpoint factors that may predispose someone to cocaine addiction but it has no single cause. Psychological, genetic, and behavioural factors can all contribute to having the disease.

The severity of the disease, how often someone uses cocaine and the amount of cocaine they consume varies from person to person. Some people use cocaine heavily all day, while others binge use and then stay clean for a while.

Cocaine addiction can happen to or affect anyone. Young or old, rich or poor, male or female – cocaine addiction does not discriminate.

Do you recognise some of the following symptoms?

Do you or someone you know use cocaine every day and cannot go a day without it?

Do you or someone you know use cocaine without worrying about the consequences?
Do you or someone you know hide their cocaine use?
Do you or someone you know have financial problems due to cocaine use?
Do you or someone you know use cocaine even though it is negatively impacting on their lives (ruining relationships, jobs, etc.)?

How we can help?

At Addiction Advisor we have Senior Addictions Counsellors that have helped people with alcohol, cocaine, amphetamine, opiate and cannabis addictions. We provide a confidential, straight forward but respectful assessment process where we look at the facts of your situation and design a plan tailor made to your needs.

The Addiction Advisor team can provide single assessment sessions for you to explore how much cocaine is being consumed, the possible effects, the various options available, the types of changes required and what might best suit your unique circumstances. Sometimes inpatient treatment in a secure facility is the preferred option. We are able to offer information on choices available and provide suitable aftercare.

If you want to speak with an Addictions and Alcohol Counsellor has the knowledge and expertise to help you identify your needs and allow you to talk freely, in confidence.
