Cocaine Abuse - Design for Recovery

Cocaine is a powerful drug that stimulates the reward pathway in your brain. With repeated use, this pathway becomes less sensitive to other pleasurable experiences like food or spending time with friends and family. The brain adapts to cocaine by becoming less sensitive to its natural rewards, which then leads them down the dark path of addiction and potentially death as their body becomes too dependent on the drug.

The damage done from prolonged exposure to cocaine is not just potentially fatal but could also be irreversible; however, there is still hope. Withdrawal symptoms such as depression or anxiety may be able to be relieved through treatment programs and sober living afterward to continue recovery. You will learn how to cope without depending on addictive drugs.

Learn the real risks that lie ahead if addiction takes hold in the resources below. We are here for you — reach out to us for more guidance and support on your road free of addiction and a life of recovery.
