Addictions We Treat

Addiction treatment is not one-size-fits-all, and your treatment plan should not be either. That’s why it’s so important that your residential treatment center has experience and expertise in a range of addictions, as well as a focus on individualized care. That’s exactly what you’ll find at The Estate, one of the few stand-alone addiction treatment centers in the country.

Cocaine Addiction Treatment

The Foundation for a Drug Free World cites that cocaine is the second most trafficked illegal drug in the world. It’s not surprising as over 40.6 million individuals in America alone, over the age of 12, admitted to at least one use of cocaine according to the 2017 National Survey on Drug Use and Health. What’s worse is that cocaine is so highly addictive that many don’t stop with just one use. If your loved one needs help, our nature-based approach to cocaine addiction treatment offers a unique and powerful path to recovery.

The Cycle of Cocaine Use

With a long and dangerous history dating back to the late 1800s, cocaine is still one the most potent stimulants available today. When someone uses cocaine it affects the neurochemistry in their brain’s reward pathway immediately. Yet that ‘high’ typically disappears, within a few minutes to an hour, depending on the method of use. For example, injecting or smoking cocaine produces a quicker and stronger but shorter-lasting high than snorting it.

Over time, tolerance to cocaine increases and it takes stronger and/or more frequent doses to get or keep the same high, and to find relief from symptoms of ‘coming down’ such as anxiety, confusion, depression and agitation.

It’s a cycle that leads to cocaine addiction; a psychological and physical dependence that compels an individual to use cocaine regardless of the harmful consequences.

• Nausea
• Raised body temperature and blood pressure
• Fast or irregular heartbeat
• Tremors and muscle twitches

• Oral Use – Bowel decay from reduced blood flow
