Trafalgar offers one of the best cocaine addiction treatment programs available in Canada. We provide accredited, evidence-based addiction treatment for cocaine dependancy and mental health disorders.
Our addiction treatment centers provide evidence-based, client-centred cocaine addiction treatment that helps clients to achieve lasting recovery. 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. A person who has developed a cocaine addiction will usually require professional support to achieve recovery as cocaine is one of the most addictive substances out there that causes severe withdrawal effects when stopped being taken after long period of consumption. The drug creates a strong sense of exhilaration. Users generally feel invincible, carefree, alert, euphoric and energetic. This is usually followed by agitation, depression, anxiety, paranoia and decreased appetite.
Effects of Cocaine Addiction
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. Cocaine effects 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 serious heart conditions such as cardiomyopathy and endocarditis. Cocaine is a potent and dangerous stimulant. The short-term and long-term effects of cocaine are equally dangerous. The dangers of experiencing cardiac arrest or seizures followed by respiratory failure is 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 in 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.

Rehab for cocaine addiction should involve evidence-based methods that can be tailored to the client’s needs. At Trafalgar, we use methods including individual therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and group counselling to treat cocaine addiction and concurrent disorders. As many people struggling with addiction are also dealing with mental health issues, we provide expert treatment for cocaine addiction & concurrent disorders.
As recovery is a lifelong process, we also provide all our clients with access to specialized aftercare support through our Aftercare and ContinUcare programs. Our support for our clients goes on long after initial treatment is completed.

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 the client 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.
