In many instances of substance abuse, it’s common for a person entering recovery to experience withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms can make a person extremely vulnerable to early relapse and discontinuation of the treatment process. However, both our experience and extensive research shows that a person’s chances of successfully overcoming cocaine addiction vastly increase by first engaging in a cocaine detox program and treatment.
Detox for cocaine can be a challenging time characterized by very strong symptoms, the most noticeable of which are often psychological. One of the most prominent psychological symptoms of cocaine detox is referred to as “euphoric recall” in which a person is triggered by something which causes them to be transported to a vivid memory of a cocaine experience. The trigger causes a person to become overcome by the sensation of using and the urge to do so, which can sometimes lead them to go to extreme lengths to get the cocaine and use again.
Symptoms of Cocaine Withdrawal & Detox
Some of the other symptoms people may experience when they detox from cocaine include:
- Change in appetite;
- Feeling of hopelessness and being overwhelmed;
- Body aches;
- Feelings of depression and anxiety;
- Cold-like symptoms such as shivering, nausea, headaches, joint aches, body weakness and fatigue;
- Feelings of anger and guilt.
It’s common for symptoms to last somewhere between three to seven days, depending on the individual.
