Cocaine addiction treatment in Thailand

Learn How to Quit Cocaine and Stay Clean

If it was easy to stop using cocaine there would be no need for drug rehabs and cocaine addiction treatments. People would be able to just stop, right?

We at Miracles Asia, a cocaine rehab in Thailand, understand the disease of addiction and how to treat it. We know that it’s relatively easy to stop using cocaine. You’ve stopped many times before, no problem. It’s staying stopped, that’s the hard part. And that’s why we’re in the business of helping people stop and stay stopped. We will give you the recovery ‘tools’ to live life without the need for cocaine.

Cocaine use often starts off as a harmless bit of fun in the beginning – its appeal is high across the board; from high achievers in banking or share trading to the crack houses of Chicago and everywhere in between. And somehow along the way, the fun turned into a need for more and more. Chasing the high becomes a full-time job and no matter how hard we try, we never get back to that original high. Maybe someone offered it to you at a party and it was glamorous and exciting to be part of the coke scene and it gave you an edge you liked.

But after a while the novelty of cocaine started to wear off and rather than being just for fun, it became a need. Scoring cocaine became a daily habit and you spent more and more money chasing the high. Health problems started and still you couldn’t stop. You became sick and tired of feeling sick and tired.

So if you’re reading this you’re either looking for help or someone you love needs help. Congratulations. Asking for help is the first step. Admitting your cocaine use is causing you problems is the important initial part of the process of checking out a cocaine addiction rehab. Coming to a rehab in Thailand is a great choice. You deserve it.

What is cocaine?

Cocaine is a powerful stimulant made from the leaves of the coca plant. It’s usually sold as a white powder or made into crystals or rocks as ‘crack’. Snorting, smoking or injecting it gives the user a brief euphoric, energising, and exhilarating feeling that lasts a few minutes to an hour, followed by a nasty comedown.

Although cocaine is actually legal for medicinal use, its highly addictive nature limits its use as an anesthetic and these days it’s mostly used illicitly. The drug is classified as a schedule II narcotic by the US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). Despite its high potential for abuse, the drug is still popular: In 2019, 2 million Americans over the age of 12 said they had used cocaine within the past month.

Side Effects of Cocaine & Signs of Addiction

A coke high, and its short-term effects are usually short-lived. This will probably lead to repeat use over several hours or even days. Using cocaine in this repetitive way is usually followed by a ‘crash’, which leaves the user feeling tired, anxious and in a low mood.

A dangerous aspect of cocaine use is that coke dealers often mix their product with other products to increase the amount they have to sell. The average purity of cocaine in the United States is about 50 per cent.

Signs of Cocaine Addiction

Cocaine is a powerfully addictive drug that causes dramatic changes in the brain and behavior. During the ‘80s and early ‘90s, cocaine was considered to be a drug used by people of high social status. Today, cocaine continues to wreak havoc on the lives of millions of people and their families.

Some signs of cocaine abuse include:

  • Extreme mood swings: When an individual uses cocaine–at least in the early stages–they are usually very social, vibrant, chatty, and it seems like they are on top of the world. When the drug starts to wear off, the user’s mood changes. They may become hostile and not want to engage in conversation. Many people isolate after a cocaine binge by taking a depressant like alcohol to combat the residual effects of cocaine.
  • Financial problems: Cocaine is expensive, so those who use it regularly often have money problems. Additionally, the effects of the drug can make it difficult to maintain employment for long. As a result, many who struggle with cocaine abuse and addiction will steal or commit fraud in order to pay for their habit.
  • Physical changes: The brain changes when someone abuses cocaine for the long-term, and family members may notice that their loved one is relatively flat emotionally when they are not high as a result. Additionally, ongoing use can cause the user to experience chronic nosebleeds, severe bowel gangrene, runny nose, lost sense of smell and more.
  • Mental health symptoms: Cocaine and crack users often experience mental health symptoms due to their ongoing use of the drug. Paranoia, anxiety, and depression can develop over time, even when the person is not under the influence of the drug. As a result, many cocaine users require dual diagnosis treatment that addresses the mental health disorder as well as the cocaine addiction.
  • Cocaine withdrawal symptoms: Most of the withdrawal symptoms of cocaine use are psychological. Some of these symptoms include irritability, insomnia and fatigue, depression, and cravings to get high. Because withdrawal symptoms can be overwhelming to the user, it’s advised that those who intend to quit using the drug do so under the care of medical professionals in addiction treatment.

Drugabuse.com asks the following questions to help determine dependence on cocaine:

  • Do you frequently use cocaine in large amounts whenever it is available (i.e. binging)?
  • Do you find yourself unable to stop using cocaine once you’ve started?
  • Do you find yourself doing more cocaine in order to achieve the same high you had reached in prior experiences (i.e developing tolerance)?
  • Do you experience withdrawals such as fatigue, sleep disturbances, anxiety or depression when you stop using cocaine?
  • Have you been unable to successfully quit cocaine despite your best efforts?
  • Have you ever consulted a healthcare professional to help you quit?
  • Have you ever continually neglected any family responsibility or other obligation because of cocaine?
  • Have you ever lost a job or friends because of cocaine?
  • Have you ever committed a crime (aside from purchasing or possessing the drug) to obtain cocaine?
  • Have you ever been arrested for using or possessing cocaine?
  • Do you use cocaine more than once a week?
  • Since using cocaine, have you experienced paranoia, hallucinations, delusions or seizures?
  • Since using cocaine, have you had an issue with weight loss?
  • Since using cocaine, have you had any problems with your heart, gastrointestinal tract or kidneys?
  • Since using cocaine, have you had any problems with nasal perforations or your respiratory system?
  • Have you ever gone to the hospital because of cocaine?

If you answer yes to three or more of these questions, it may be time to consider cocaine addiction treatment in Thailand.

Symptoms of cocaine withdrawal

Withdrawing from substances, like alcohol and benzodiazepines, can involve severe physical withdrawal symptoms, but cocaine detox brings mostly psychological withdrawal symptoms. Symptoms of cocaine withdrawal include:

  • trouble concentrating
  • slowed-up thinking
  • sluggish movement or physical fatigue after activity
  • exhaustion
  • restlessness
  • inability to experience sexual arousal
  • inability to feel pleasure
  • depression or anxiety
  • suicidal thoughts or actions
  • vivid, unpleasant dreams or nightmares
  • chills, tremors, muscle aches, and nerve pain
  • increased craving for cocaine
  • increased appetite.

Continuing Care After You Leave Treatment for Cocaine Addiction

We understand that early recovery from cocaine addiction can be a stressful time. While you’re in treatment in Thailand, you don’t have to think about life after rehab. You’re cocooned in the safety of the treatment center where your every need is catered for. So, returning back to life at home can seem daunting.

We know how it goes, and so Miracles Asia takes your continuing care very seriously.

The treatment program at Miracles Asia doesn’t stop after you leave cocaine addiction rehab.
Say you spend one month in residential care, you’ll stay connected through our after-care online program for two further months – and longer if necessary.

The aftercare support program will keep you in regular contact with your counselor who will see you for one-to-one sessions by Zoom weekly. These sessions are important so that we can check in to make sure you’re still on-track in your recovery and if you’re experiencing any issues we can problem solve together.

Not only will you have one-to-one counseling, but also our ongoing group counseling sessions will keep you connected to your peer group, some of whom you may form life-long attachments with.

The group sessions are kept deliberately small in number. A group therapy session lasts around 120 minutes and is taken by a counselor who you will probably know from your time in residential care.

The experienced group facilitator’s job is to check in with you all and spend time making sure you’re on track with your recovery. You may have questions and the facilitator will be happy to answer questions and provide the necessary psychoeducation and relapse prevention planning.

We make sure you’re getting the best possible support as you ease back in to your community back home. Miracles’ group therapy is a key part of your ongoing progress. It’s helpful to keep you on the right track to living the life you deserve, clean and sober a day at a time.

Our online group counseling is available at assigned times during the week to cater for you wherever you are in the world after you leave cocaine treatment rehab.

Relapse prevention is a steep learning curve and we will support you, making sure the best care continues.

Maybe you have questions about what to do, or how to go about life in general. For these reasons and more, our case-managers will stay in touch and help you manage your early few months in recovery.

Research shows that the longer the recovering person stays connected to a treatment program, the better the outcome i.e. the longer he or she works alongside professional counselors, therapists, recovery coaches etc, the better the chance of long-term recovery from cocaine addiction.

We take your treatment plan very seriously and want the best for you, so for that reason we know it’s important to stay in touch. You deserve the best chance at living your best life.

We are so convinced that our program works that if you are able to spend three months with us and then suffer the pain of relapse within one year of leaving Miracles Asia, we’ll treat you for a month for free. That’s how much faith we have in our drug addiction treatment program at Miracles Asia. We know how important your recovery is and we will do our best to make sure that you get what you deserve – a good life, full of happiness and freedom from using.

Living an addiction-free life is absolutely possible and we at Miracles Asia are proof of that ourselves. We know what it’s like to recover. Get your life back: you deserve it!
