3 Reasons Why Choosing an Alternative Cocaine Treatment Option is the Right Choice

Cocaine is one of the most challenging drug addictions to overcome, with about 80 percent of people who try to quit experiencing relapse within the first six months. Thankfully, modern science and spirituality have developed a variety of effective methods for creating truly sustainable, holistic healing from cocaine addiction.

Here are the top three reasons why choosing an alternative cocaine treatment option is the right choice:

1. You Need Strong Support, Especially in the Beginning

When it comes to addiction recovery, it’s incredibly easy to deceive ourselves into believing that we’ve got everything covered. Our perceptions of reality and self become increasingly distorted. But attempting to self-regulate cocaine use is especially risky when you think about how overwhelming it can be to deal with temptations, negative moods and depleted mental and emotional resources.

Learning techniques for self-control is essential to form effective life plans, steer away from unwanted thought patterns and improve your relationships. When you learn to care for yourself well, you’ll start to experience better social interactions, more job success and a more balanced mental state.

When you’re dealing with cocaine addiction, it’s essential to get all the support you need from the start, so you create a solid foundation on which to battle all the behaviors that have led you to where you are now.

2. You Need an All-Encompassing Approach

Traditional treatments for cocaine addiction aim to help you achieve abstinence and prevent relapse. Usually, there’s an initial detox period followed by talk therapy to address the behavioral, psychological and social issues caused by addiction.

To target the consequences of cocaine addiction, which can include physical symptoms (trembling, headaches, nausea, stomach pain, heart problems, strokes, weight loss and gastrointestinal bleeding) and mental symptoms (like behavioral changes, anxiety, agitation, depression and hallucinations, and more) you’ll need a well-rounded and comprehensive game plan.

To prevent relapse, you’ll need to learn how to reduce triggers and decrease any environmental cues that spark your desire to use cocaine. You’ll also need to understand what got you here in the first place – all addictions are the result of deeper underlying causes, such as unresolved trauma or co-occurring mental health conditions.

3. Addiction Impacts Mind, Body and Soul — And so Should Your Treatment

Addiction most noticeably affects your mind, changing your brain’s activities in such a way as to create a strong emotional dependence. Ultimately, your brain is tricked into believing that nothing else, except cocaine, matters. Your cravings and restlessness become increasingly extreme, and your decision-making abilities are impaired to the point that it’s hard to tell the difference between right and wrong.

The next place to look to when it comes to addiction is the body, which incurs both short- and long-term damage as a result of this incredibly caustic substance.

Cocaine addiction also affects your soul, by causing you to focus only on the human aspects of yourself and forget your connection to the all, diminishing your ability to give and receive love.
