Cocaine is an extremely addictive drug that has widespread use throughout the country. At one time, the drug was used to suppress coughs and treat toothaches, but safer alternatives have since replaced it. Unfortunately, it’s still prevalent in communities throughout the United States and used for its euphoric high. Substantial doses of the drug or long-term use of it could lead to chemical dependency or addiction. Those who become addicted to the drug put themselves at a higher risk of a fatal overdose, long-term health issues, or legal problems.
At Harmony Hills, our cocaine addiction treatment program helps individuals heal and recover from the disease of addiction. Through detox and then comprehensive and customized therapy, individuals can regain control of their lives and return to good health.
Addiction is a chronic disease that worsens over time if it’s not treated correctly. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) considers addiction a severe substance use disorder. The manual identifies it by repeated use of a drug despite the consequences in your life. For example, if you continue using cocaine after a near-fatal overdose, you will likely become addicted to the drug. Other effects may include legal, social, financial, or vocational.
The use of cocaine may cause various signs and symptoms during intoxication. You may experience a variation of paranoia, anxiety, delusional thinking, or feelings of empowerment. Chronic cocaine use may create a chemical imbalance in your brain related to dopamine, tied to reward and motivation. Long-term use may also lead to an inability to experience pleasure without the drug and severe depression. Other signs you might encounter include:
While addiction is considered a chronic disease, advances in modern medicine have yielded positive results through treatment. The addiction treatment process for cocaine must address multiple areas of your life, including your mental and physical health, legal problems, social issues, and finances.
Substance abuse treatment must also be tailored to your specific needs for it to be effective. Addiction is a complex disease, and it may include other co-occurring issues, such as past trauma, mental health problems, and medical complications. At Harmony Hills, we offer a wide range of therapeutic options like:
Across all our treatment programs, these therapies help individuals identify their triggers, learn healthy coping mechanisms, repair damage to their personal relationships, and change their thinking for the better.

There will be a more significant emphasis placed on your physical safety in more intensive levels of care like medical detox. Lower levels of care, however, may involve a greater focus on clinical care.
The timeframe for treatment will vary from one person to another, depending on their level of dependency on cocaine. While some may benefit from a short stint in treatment, others may require long-term care to start their lives over. We offer the full spectrum of care to meet the unique needs of each individual:
