Tampa’s Best Cocaine Addiction Detox Center

North Tampa Behavioral Health is a leading detox center for individuals struggling with cocaine abuse. Located in Wesley Chapel, the expert staff at North Tampa provides lasting recovery through holistic care and comprehensive programming.

Importance of Detox

The Importance of Detox for Cocaine Addiction

Whether abused alone or at the same time as other drugs, cocaine is a powerfully addictive substance that’s capable of ensnaring a person in the throes of a seemingly inescapable pattern of substance abuse. When abused, this drug can cause increased energy, feelings of euphoria, and decrease one’s inhibitions. And while this sort of high can be short-lived, it remains alluring enough to keep people using it again and again.

Regardless of how you’ve consumed cocaine, if you have abused this substance for a long time, there’s a high likelihood that you are unable to stop this type of substance abuse. In fact, if you’ve been a regular abuser of this drug and have increased the amount you consume, it’s quite possible that you’ve become addicted to it. If this is your experience with cocaine abuse, you may be an excellent candidate for professional rehab services if you’re ready to leave the abuse of cocaine in the past.

Among the options for care that you can use to start to defeat your cocaine addiction, none have proven to be more effective than comprehensive treatment that features detox as the first line of defense in the recovery process. This kind of care can not only rid your body of cocaine, but it can give you a fighting chance against your addiction and save your life. Detox, more specifically, can allow your body to heal from the effects of your substance abuse and allow you to then fully immerse yourself in the therapeutic process, wherein you’ll understand yourself and addiction better.


Benefits of Detox

Unfortunately, many people who try to stop the abuse of cocaine without help ultimately relapse. This is often due to the uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms that occur once the abuse of cocaine ends. However, when detox services are part of an all-encompassing rehab program, the risk for relapse is drastically lower.

In addition to having a lesser likelihood of relapse, detox can provide you with the following advantages as you work towards becoming sober:

  • You won’t have to go through the detox process alone. While in a detox program, you’ll have ongoing support from professionals who will go above and beyond to make sure you stick to your commitment to becoming sober.
  • You’ll be made comfortable during detox. Should your withdrawal become overwhelming, the medical staff can prescribe medications that can alleviate your discomfort.
  • You will be able to start your therapeutic services as soon as you’re able. Since detox precedes therapeutic treatment, you can complete that service and begin working on your recovery from a psychological and emotional level shortly thereafter.
  • Your body can start to heal from the effects of your cocaine abuse. Additionally, you’ll be safeguarded from the damage that continued cocaine abuse can inflict since this and other drugs are not permitted within the treatment center.

These are just a few of the life-changing benefits of receiving care that includes detox. If you’d like to learn more about how this kind of programming can help you achieve long-lasting recovery, you can contact a treatment center of your choosing to ask any questions that you may have.

Legal problems (including arrest and incarceration), family problems (including ongoing conflict, divorce, and loss of child custody), and permanent health problems are all potential outcomes of continuing to abuse cocaine without seeking effective treatment. Additionally, when you remain addicted to this drug, overdose remains a possible consequence that could result in the loss of one’s life. On the other hand, when rehab services that feature detox are received, these and any other harmful aftereffects can be evaded, and a long, healthy, and sober life can be lived.

Since we first began treating people struggling with cocaine addictions, we, at North Tampa Behavioral Health Hospital, have dedicated ourselves to providing the most effective addiction treatment possible. We aim to provide the services, support, and resources that individuals like you need to break free from the grips of cocaine addiction so that a sober future can be enjoyed to the fullest. Through our unique combination of detox services, individual, group, and family therapy, and our staff’s dedication to assisting each person who entrusts us with his or her care, we are confident that you can have a positive experience while at our center and overcome your cocaine addiction once and for all.
