Signs of a Cocaine Overdose
Consumption of any amount of cocaine comes with risk. Overdose of cocaine can cause many difficult symptoms that vary in severity:
- Heightened agitation and anxiety
- Increased body temperature and blood pressure
- Trouble with breathing, irregular heartbeat
- Heart attack
If you notice any of the more severe symptoms, it’s time to immediately seek emergency help. Medical care is critical for saving the life of someone who has overdosed on cocaine, and early intervention is important in preventing worse effects.
Prevention of cocaine overdose will, of course, involve abstaining from cocaine use. However, drinking alcohol while using cocaine can make the risk of overdose higher. Many of those who use cocaine do so in combination with other drugs, which will make overdose more likely.
It’s not always easy for those addicted to cocaine to admit they have a problem. At Solution Based Treatment, our nonjudgmental and experienced team can give medical and psychological support to those dealing with addiction to cocaine. Finding help early to quit cocaine use can give you and your loved ones long-lasting peace of mind.
Cocaine Addiction Treatment at SBT
Getting help for cocaine addiction at a rehab center starts with medically supervised detox. SBT’s medical team can help clients to get through difficult withdrawal symptoms with medical assistance. A treatment plan for each client will involve either a residential program or intensive outpatient treatment, depending on the level of care needed.
At our residential treatment program, clients can stay in a safe and comfortable residential home while they recover. This gives them a place to stay that is free of cocaine and gives highly personalized and intensive support.
Intensive outpatient treatment is highly beneficial for clients who have a home that is safe from drugs and is supportive of recovery. Clients can participate in group therapy, individual therapy, and holistic therapies, while being able to return home each day.
These two programs are not mutually exclusive, as some clients may need residential care for a time, and then opt for an outpatient program. Those who participate in either program can also access a variety of other treatments and therapies, which can help with underlying causes of addiction. These services include:
- Dual diagnosis treatment, including cognitive behavioral therapy
- Men’s and women’s rehab programs
- Rock to Recovery program
- Building on the Rock, our faith-based program
- Relapse prevention plans
- Sober living community, for alumni to participate in activities that maintain their recovery
At Solution Based Treatment, our specialists understand that recovery isn’t always an easy or linear process. We give all clients the time and support they need for recovery, regardless of their particular circumstances. There is no addiction too severe or too minor to matter to our team, and we invite you to find out more today.
