Why Middle East Residents find Effective and Affordable Treatment for Cocaine Addiction at The Cabin Chiang Mai
Cocaine is one of the most addictive and widely used drugs available. It is an illicit and powerful stimulant extracted from the coco plant. It comes in two forms: cocaine hydrochloride and crack cocaine. Cocaine hydrochloride is a fine, white, crystalline powder often diluted with sugar, cornstarch or baking soda. It is snorted or mixed with water and injected. Crack cocaine is processed with ammonia or baking soda and water to create a rock substance known as “crack” that is then smoked.
Cocaine use has an immediate effect on the brain, causing feelings of euphoria, increased levels of energy and enhanced sensations of sight, sound and touch. The high is brief, causing intense cravings to use again and resulting in a “crash and binge” cycle of abuse. Tolerance develops quickly and the amount and frequency of usage increases. Mixing cocaine with alcohol increases the risk of overdose, heart attack, organ failure and sudden death.
Cocaine addiction treatment at The Cabin Arabic Treatment Centre consists of 2 main elements:
Despite being highly addictive cocaine does not cause physical dependence, however, detox from cocaine can cause symptoms such as vomiting, chills, tremors, agitation, fatigue, muscle pain and suicidal thoughts. In some cases, a client may also develop drug-induced psychosis.
At The Cabin Arabic Treatment Centre you will be under the care of our professional medical team, led by Thailand’s top detox specialist. If you do begin to suffer from psychosis, they will put you on an anti-psychotic medication to abate the symptoms – for at least one month depending on your condition. Otherwise, all clients are under the vigilant supervision of our doctor and nurses 24/7 during their detox period, and medication to ease physical discomforts is prescribed on a case-by-case basis.
With cocaine addiction relapse is common. Even once the body has been cleansed of its toxins, intense cravings for the drug will persist due to structural changes in the brain. Treating the psychological addiction and learning how to fight cravings is key to breaking the cycle of cocaine abuse and preventing relapse.
At The Cabin Arabic Treatment Centre, we use a highly effective treatment model called Recovery Zones to help clients get to the root of the addiction. They will be treated by a team of experienced addiction counsellors and psychologists using a combination of proven counselling and therapy techniques that address the specific needs of each client. These will include a culturally-sensitive version of the 12 Steps, one-one one and group therapy, CBT, Mind Mapping and Mindfulness meditation. Through relapse prevention programmes, and sober time management skills, our counsellors will help prepare clients for a sober life by coaching them to recognise and understand their particular triggers and build their own relapse prevention plan for sustained sobriety.
Cocaine abuse can take a severe toll on the body. Successful rehabilitation requires a comprehensive programme to restore physical and mental well-being. We offer a holistic exercise and nutrition plan that includes health and wellness education, fitness and massage therapy, yoga and meditation to get on track to a healthy, well-rounded lifestyle.
