Cocaine rehabilitation at The Hader Clinic

Cocaine is a highly addictive and potent psychoactive stimulant. In the short term, cocaine floods the brain with dopamine, leading to confidence, pleasure, and feelings of extreme euphoria. However, long term cocaine use can lead to a range of physical and mental health issues, including psychosis, paranoia, and complete inability to function without the drug.

The Hader Clinic understands just how pervasive cocaine addiction can be. We offer a comprehensive list of cocaine addiction treatments, affordable at a range of prices, and all carried out in a medically-supervised setting. The Hader Clinic’s Melbourne cocaine rehab program will give you the best chance at long-term recovery.

The Hader Clinic explains how addicts are not able to predict how much they are going to use once they start using or control their use.

Cocaine rehab and withdrawal

Cocaine dependence treatment can be as physically and mentally taxing as treatments for other stimulants, like ice and ecstasy. Some patients require medically supervised detox, others do not. It all depends on the patient and their relationship with the drug.

The intense symptoms of cocaine withdrawal include:

  • Anxiety and depression
  • Restlessness of fatigue
  • Cravings
  • Paranoia or Cocaine psychosis (see FAQs below)

At The Hader Clinic’s private cocaine rehabilitation hospital in Melbourne, addicts can overcome their withdrawal under the protective guidance of care staff. Our medical teams are qualified to prescribe medication necessary for the severe physical and psychological effects of withdrawal.

Frequently asked questions about cocaine rehab and addiction

Isn't cocaine expensive? How do people afford to get addicted to it?

Compared to other substances, cocaine is an expensive habit. The short, intense high only lasts for between 20 and 30 minutes, and requires constant attention to maintain. This can lead to fast use, which can increase tolerance in a short space of time.

At The Hader Clinic, we understand that one of the main social effects of cocaine addiction is financial detriment. When you're an addict, financial stability takes second place to getting high. Saving money does not light up the pleasure centre of the brain like cocaine does.

Our cocaine rehab programs help address social problems like financial dependence, in tandem with the physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual effects of addiction. Using our specialised and proven holistic model of treatment, we help patients come to realise that there are things of value outside of cocaine.

Isn't mixing cocaine and alcohol relatively harmless?

This is a misconception. Alcohol and cocaine are typical candidates for poly drug use. However, mixing them can be incredibly dangerous. Alcohol is a depressant, slowing down the message between the brain and the body. Cocaine, as a stimulant, has the opposite effect.

In effect, cocaine can cancel out the depressant effects of alcohol, and alcohol can heighten the stimulant nature of cocaine. When these substances combine in the liver, they form cocaethylene, which places immense strain on the heart, potentially leading to heart attacks, and even sudden death.

What is cocaine psychosis?

Stimulant-induced psychosis is a well-documented phenomenon that can occur as a result of long term cocaine use. Many kinds of drugs and alcohol can trigger a psychotic episode in a patient, or it can arise as a result of withdrawal.

Patients who have stimulant-induced psychosis often report feeling:

  • Paranoid fixations
  • Violent machinations
  • Agitation and restlessness
  • Unpleasant and frightening hallucinations

Cocaine addiction can also coincide with a preexisting mental health condition. This is known as a dual diagnosis. The Hader Clinic’s cocaine treatment facility in Melbourne is staffed by clinical psychologists who specialise in treating patients with dual diagnoses.

How did my loved one get addicted to cocaine? I thought they were smart.

Cocaine addiction does not discriminate based on gender, race, age, income, lifestyle, or intelligence. It does not discriminate at all. Cocaine addiction is not a choice, but rather an affliction. It is an illness, and like many illnesses, it can be treated with professional attention.

The Hader Clinic treats all people, from all walks of life. Our cocaine rehab programs centre patients and their individual needs, ensuring that they are receiving high quality, personalised care. It doesn't matter who the patient is. All that matter is that they enter treatment for their addiction.
