Outpatient Cocaine Addiction Detox and Treatment
Cocaine has become increasingly common as a social use drug and a 2nd drug of choice. It can easily become the new drug of choice, especially if consumed in the form of crack. Although it does not have the obvious and full-scale physical dependence of an opiate, alcohol or benzodiazepine, it has a severe psychological addiction that can be worse than any of those three. There are more subtle withdrawal symptoms that do exist though, that intensify the psychological addiction symptoms. These symptoms can be effectively controlled with medical treatment.
The expert use of intricate medication combinations can contain and control cocaine withdrawal symptoms, leaving the patient more comfortable and with less cravings. Almost all patients can continue working full time while undergoing this process, with stability being achieved quickly. Once the neuro-chemical disruption of cocaine cessation is relieved by treatment, normal brain functioning starts to return. Successfully managed patients have lower relapse rates and report a much better quality of life. Co-occurring problems such as depression and anxiety are also managed, further improving quality of life. Outpatient treatment costs much less than inpatient treatment, with substantial additional savings coming from almost no opportunity cost from missed work days.
Appointments for the many treatment providers are available at convenient times both before and after common working hours, so patients can undergo outpatient treatment without missing work. The downtown Delray Beach location is convenient and very easily accessed by patients living in Delray Beach, Boca Raton, Boynton Beach, Lake Worth, Deerfield Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Coral Springs, Coconut Creek, and West Palm Beach. Due to the limited availability of such specialized outpatient detox services in the State of Florida, many clients come from Wellington, Royal Palm Beach, Melbourne, Stuart, Fort Pierce, Port St. Lucie, Miami, Miami Beach, Aventura, and the Florida Keys. Some patients have even come from as far as South America, Central America, New York City, Nashville and the Caribbean.
