If an individual tries to quit cocaine without going through a detoxification program, they risk relapsing. This is because cocaine withdrawal can be very hard on an individual, with symptoms like intense cravings for the drug, hostility, and insomnia. There are many cocaine detox locations in Vermont, with some found in rehab facilities as part of their full rehab program. There are two types of detoxification programs, regular detox and medical detoxification. The main difference is that a cocaine medical detox program will have licensed medical staff members who can provide things like medication when necessary. This can be crucial. For example, if someone has suicidal thoughts, they will need specific care to ensure their safety. Factors such as the severity of the patient's addiction (how much or how long they've been using, whether they use multiple drugs) and the patient's metabolism will affect how long and severe the withdrawal will be. Keep in mind that when looking at the cocaine detox centers available in Vermont, one should also choose a comprehensive rehabilitation center. After detox, a person must attend a rehabilitation center to make sure all their issues are addressed.

Around 3% of all treatment admissions in Vermont are for cocaine addiction. Cocaine abuse is a matter that should be addressed. Although the drug creates an intense euphoria for the user, it can also make them hallucinate, make them depressed, restless, etc. Long-term use of cocaine can lead to chest pain, chronic nosebleeds, delirium, headaches, etc. A person abusing cocaine also runs the risk of overdosing. A person who has a cocaine abuse or addiction problem needs help. Luckily, one can find many cocaine treatment centers all across Vermont. The point of cocaine treatment is to have the patient stay drug-free once they leave the center and be productive in their life. When someone is struggling with cocaine addiction, the rehab staff will use different types of counseling and behavioral therapies to help them. Counseling is used to get the person to change their attitudes and behaviors regarding cocaine (and other drugs depending on the situation).
