Withdrawal symptoms effects to addiction patients: The power of cocaine addiction

In the meantime it is important to appreciate that the problem of withdrawal symptoms of cocaine are emotional and never physical as many may think. If this has been your way of thought, then it must be registered to you that there are no physical withdrawal symptoms from cocaine addiction, and that is why people sometimes trick themselves into thinking they aren’t addicted to it (cocaine). I’m not physically addicted to cocaine are common sentiment many people use, but the truth of the matter is that there is no physical addiction and non-physical addiction to substance, all we have is just addiction which occurs all in the brain. Nonetheless doctor Akoury is of the opinion that even though there are no physical withdrawal symptoms, it is important to appreciate that cocaine being a stimulant is still satisfying all the criteria of addiction. Because of its nature of addictiveness, many people have difficulty controlling how much they use and because of that they literally continuing to use it even though it has negative consequences to their life  and that of their loved ones. According to the experts at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center under the able leadership of doctor Dalal Akoury, there are several emotional withdrawal symptoms of cocaine and the following are just but a few:

Doctor Akoury is registering that many at times withdrawal do occur because an individual’s brain works like a spring when it comes to addiction. In other words, drugs and alcohol are brain depressants that push down the spring. That is to say that they suppress your brain’s production of neurotransmitters like noradrenaline. What that communicates is that when you stop using drugs or alcohol it’s like taking the weight off the spring, and your brain rebounds by producing a surge of adrenaline that causes withdrawal symptoms. And that explains why withdrawal symptoms are one of the greatest challenges when it comes to drug addiction recovery.

When the first obstacle of denial is contain and both direct and indirect victims consent that there is a problem that needs fixing, you can always say that this marks the beginning of the recovery journey. It is much easier to enroll an individual who is ready to be helped and knows why he or she is going through the rehabilitation process that one who is still rooted in denial and non-acceptance of the real situation in his or her life. Nevertheless up on defeating the problem of denial, treatment can now begin however, much as we would wish that it be smooth all the way, this is not always the case says doctor Akoury. Along the way there will be other obstacles relating to the withdrawal symptoms and relapse which can occur at any time during and even several years after rehabilitation.

Substance relapse and withdrawal complications: The many dimensions of drug abuse and addiction

In the meantime, because drug abuse and addiction have so many dimensions that rearranges and disrupt so many aspects of an individual’s life, treatment is not often very simple. The point is that for an effective treatment program of this condition, it is necessary that the approach given be typical and accommodative thereby incorporating many treatment components with each component being directed to a particular aspect of the illness and its consequences. The objective of any addiction treatment must always be clear that it must help the individual stop using drugs, maintain a drug-free lifestyle, and achieve productive functioning in the family, at work and in the society. In spite of this says doctor Akoury that because addiction is typically a chronic disease, ordinarily people cannot simply stop using drugs for a few days and be cured? Therefore in many cases, ideally most patients will require long-term or repeated episodes of care to achieve the ultimate goal of sustained abstinence and recovery of their lives. That is why the problem of relapse and withdrawal symptoms are always a major threat to recovery process. That is not to scare you of anything but just to inform you that when such happens, it is not the end of the road for you.

Addiction recovery process is never easy: Being homeless

At one point during the stay with my friend the story continues, I got word that my parents were coming for a vacation in the neighboring country and this trip could not have come at the right time. After being accommodated all this while, my friend had just given me notice that her roommate needed the couch for her guests who were visiting with her soon. This would have meant that I was going to be homeless again. The good news to me is that my parents were not just coming for me to have a roof over my head, but also at a time when the addiction healing process was picking up well. And so to play safe, I told my parents that I will be joining them for the vacation but am down with a very bad flu and needed a place to crush for sometimes.

Even though I was making this lie, my parents knew the truth because they had seen me go through it several times in the past even though they never commented about it. And with the assurance of getting accommodation and the love of my parents, I threw away all my bags and needles and headed to join them. I spent the next few weeks there shacked up in their bedroom, sleeping on an air mattress and refusing to leave the room. By and by the physical pain started to recede paving the way for mental anguish to hit like a train and this time I couldn’t move. I cried a lot struggling to hide the real thing from my parents but it was pointless and I just didn’t care.

Realizing that I’ve been diagnosed with bipolar, I figured what is the difference between this and a depressive episode, anyway? So I rode it out like anyone else. So many things crossed my mind including suicide but I just didn’t have the strength to follow through with any of my half assessed plans. I thought about trying to find dope in this city however hard it could be but I was so depressed that the idea of trying to get out of bed was exhausting enough, let alone getting dressed and leaving the house. Besides, I had no money and I knew my parents didn’t trust me so what was I going to do? Steal money? Forget it. I didn’t have the strength. Are you following how addiction recovery process comes at a price? Why wait to this point if you can easily be helped by doctor Dalal Akoury who is just a phone call away? Choose wisely today.
