Cocaine Addiction and Treatment
Cocaine is a powerfully addictive drug. Once someone has used cocaine, they cannot reliably predict or control the extent to which they will continue to use the drug.
Trafalgar offers one of the best cocaine addiction treatment programs available in Canada.
We provide accredited, evidence-based addiction treatment for cocaine dependency and mental health disorders. Our addiction treatment centres offer client-centred cocaine addiction treatment that helps clients to achieve lasting recovery.
A person who has developed a cocaine addiction will usually require professional support as cocaine is one of the most addictive substances out there that causes severe withdrawal effects when stopped being taken after a long period of consumption.
The drug creates a strong sense of exhilaration. Users generally feel invincible, carefree, alert, euphoric and energetic.
This mood is usually followed by agitation, depression, anxiety, paranoia and decreased appetite.
Cocaine Addiction Symptoms
Sustained use can cause anxiety, paranoia, mood swings, and in some cases, psychosis.
It can also have damaging long-term effects on a user’s memory and decision-making. Like alcohol addiction, cocaine also affects the structure of the brain, making it less responsive to ordinary stimuli after becoming used to the effects of cocaine.
This makes it extremely difficult for addicts to stop using without dedicated, professional support.
Cocaine can also lead to severe heart conditions, such as cardiomyopathy and endocarditis.
Cocaine is a potent and dangerous stimulant. The short-term and long-term effects of this drug are equally harmful.
The dangers of experiencing cardiac arrest or seizures, followed by respiratory failure, are equal in both short and long term abuse.
The long-term effects of using cocaine can include extreme agitation, violent mood swings and depression. Prolonged use of cocaine via nasal ingestion causes ulcerations in the mucous membrane of the nose and the barrier separating the nostrils.
It can also result in a loss of appetite, extreme insomnia and sexual problems. Heart disease, heart attack, respiratory failure, strokes, seizures, and gastrointestinal problems are not uncommon among long-term users of cocaine and crack.

Outpatient Cocaine Rehab
Our outpatient addiction counselling centre, located in Toronto, treats clients who are unable to attend residential treatment.
Our 4-week or 6-week Intensive Outpatient Programs allow you to receive treatment similar to what you would receive in our residential treatment facility.
Outpatient treatment allows you the opportunity to continue working and go home at night.
If the Intensive Outpatient Program does not fit into your schedule, or if you need to focus on a specific area of concern, we will tailor a program for you based on your schedule, needs, and budget.
Cocaine Addiction & Mental Health Disorders
Our substance abuse treatment team digs deeper than many drug rehab centres into the underlying causes and conditions of the entire addictive disease process, focusing on treating you as a whole.
As a result, they often identify concurrent mental health issues that, left unaddressed, often lie at the root of cocaine relapses.
We can assure you that our cocaine rehabilitation program will help you overcome your addiction and move you towards healthy, sober living.
