Cocaine Addiction Rehab & Treatment
At Lumion, our mission is to offer hope and lasting relief to those who are suffering from cocaine addiction, and addiction of all types.
While the recreational use of cocaine has declined somewhat in recent years, the drug remains one of the most addictive substances you can ingest. Much like heroin, cocaine functions to increase the availability of the neurotransmitter dopamine in the brain. Dopamine is associated with the generation of “euphoric” emotions, the regulation of movement, and the processing of reward cues.
Long-term cocaine abuse has been associated with changes in brain chemistry. These changes are associated with the increased “need” for cocaine, which is the definition of addiction. Even users who regard their use of cocaine as merely “recreational” may be at risk of neurological changes to their brain, with serious effects on their bodies and lives.
- Some 2100 people 12 and older try cocaine for the first time each year.
- Nearly 1 million Americans report having an addiction to cocaine.
- The largest amount of illicit drug-related emergency room visits each year are cocaine related.
- Cocaine is the most common drug found, in addition to alcohol, in alcohol-related emergency room visits.
- Cocaine use is highest among Americans aged 18 to 25.
One of the most serious effects of regular use of cocaine is potential damage to heart muscle, leading to the increased potential for cardiac arrhythmia and heart attack, as well as stroke and brain damage.
Cocaine use can cause significant cardiac and vascular dysfunction, in addition to harming other critical organ systems.
