The Dangers of Cocaine

A large number of people are unaware of how addictive cocaine can be. Withdrawal can occur within a day of starting the detox process and occasionally cause austere symptoms such as sweating, racing, heartbeat, chest tightening, difficulty breathing, pain, aches, tremors, nausea, and/or vomiting. nnAlthough the physical manifestations of cocaine withdrawal can differ from that of alcohol and opiates, the crash that follows cessation of cocaine use is often accompanied by anxiety, cravings, irritability, restlessness, loss of pleasure, difficulty in concentration and fatigue. Detox from cocaine may take 7 to 10 days depending on the frequency and amount of use. nnArtemis Hill Recovery invests in a program that replaces the symptoms of cocaine use with strength, health, and motivation to achieve a drug-free life.
