What to Know About Cocaine Detox

Cocaine detox is the first step on the journey to recovering from your addiction. Detox is a necessary first step because before you start treatment, you must rid your body of the toxins associated with the use of cocaine. The detox stage of recovery does just that: It rids your body of all poisons so you are ready to begin your treatment in a sober state.

How Long Does it Take to Detox from Cocaine?

Cocaine detox generally takes 5 days, depending on the severity and specifics of each case, but can also last for weeks in the most severe cases. With cocaine detox, the length and severity of the process can depend on your age, history of use, method of use, whether you took other substances simultaneously, and more.

Withdrawal Symptoms:

Symptoms of cocaine withdrawal can vary depending on the factors discussed in the last section. However, in general, symptoms include the following:

  • Chills
  • Tremors
  • Muscle Aches
  • Loss of Sexual Pleasure
  • Fatigue
  • Slowed Cognitive Processes
  • Difficulty Concentrating
  • Feelings of Exhaustion
  • Nightmares
  • Increased Appetite
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Intense Cravings
  • Suicidal Thoughts

Staying Healthy During Cocaine Detox:

While going through detox, it is important to stay healthy, as this will help mitigate some of the worst symptoms. Your body will go through a lot while detoxing, so try to keep the following in mind:

  • Eat Well
  • Drink lots of water
  • Consume lots of electrolytes
  • Prioritize Relaxation Techniques to reduce your overall stress. Examples of ways to relax yourself during detox include:
    • Practicing meditation and deep breathing
    • Taking warm showers
    • Anything that can help lower your blood pressure and keep you calm

Benefits of At-Home Cocaine Detox

There are ample benefits for selecting a home detox versus going through the uncomfortable process in a sterile detox facility. Some of these benefits include:

Maintain Privacy

One way of protecting privacy during the detox process is to obtain these supportive medical services in the comfort of one’s home. Helping someone complete the detox at home can begin the recovery process while ensuring that these services are fully discreet.

Lower Stress

Going through the detox process among your familiar surroundings is much less stressful when compared to a detox facility. Being at home also means having access to supportive family members.

Top-Notch Care

Having one-on-one medical oversight provides the utmost level of care, and gives the individual the confidence that they will be carefully supervised throughout the detox and withdrawal process.

Support for Family

A home detox nurse and his or her team can also support family members during their loved one’s detox phase, and prepare them for the next step of rehabilitation and what it will entail.

Next Steps After Home Detox from Cocaine

Once the drug has been successfully removed from the body and withdrawal symptoms have generally subsided, the next step of the recovery process is a structured addiction treatment program. Again, there are options, such as whether an inpatient treatment program or an outpatient program is the better fit. Each has merit, so the decision as to which one to enter will likely be dictated by the severity and history of the cocaine addiction and personal resources.

Relapse prevention is the top priority in early recovery when individuals are most vulnerable. For this reason, it is advised that, along with a treatment program, the individual participate in a recovery support group, such as N.A., A.A., or SMART Recovery. All of these steps—detox, active treatment program, and peer support—are stepping stones towards a new life in recovery.
