Cocaine Addiction



Cocaine  Addiction

Cocaine addiction can disrupt your life and the lives of those around you. If you are struggling with addiction, you also place yourself at a higher risk of developing co-occurring mental health disorders. With our cocaine addiction treatment, you can get the help you deserve and start rediscovering the joy of life.

Cocaine is a naturally occurring element derived from the coca plants originating in South America. Throughout history, cocaine has been used in the Andes Mountains in the form of tea to help people adjust to higher altitudes.

If you or someone you love is struggling with cocaine, contact Prevail Recovery Center today to learn more about our Florida outpatient rehab treatment.


The Dangers of Cocaine

Cocaine is a highly addictive substance. Regular use of cocaine alters your brain structure and function.

Your dopamine system functions as your reward center in the brain. Positive activities reinforce dopamine production, including sex, healthy eating, exercise, and productivity.

But cocaine stimulates that same area. So, when you learn a new skill or do really well at work, you have a positive feeling inside you brought about by your dopamine response center. When you use cocaine, you get an even more intense but short-lived version of this feeling.

Under normal circumstances, you get that quick burst of positive feeling or “high” when you do something like exercise. Your brain releases dopamine to give you this feeling and then removes the dopamine so that you can go back to feeling normal.

Cocaine stops your brain from being able to remove the dopamine, so you have a higher amount of dopamine than normal, flooding your circuits and giving you an even more intense positive feeling or “high” than you can achieve with anything else.

The more you use cocaine to try to achieve that same feeling, the more damage you do to your brain. Chronic cocaine use disrupts your natural reward system, so you won’t feel the same happiness if you exercise, have sex, or eat healthy foods. It also changes your response to stress. Stress contributes to cocaine relapse because of the way cocaine changes the brain. This is what makes it so difficult to overcome an addiction without proper South Florida cocaine rehab.


  • As of 2020, about 5.2 million people used cocaine in the last 12 months
  • Around 1.3 million people have a cocaine addiction
  • Almost 20,000 people die from cocaine overdoses every year

Attending cocaine rehab in South Florida gives you skills to deal with stress other than a relapse. Rehab also teaches you how to identify triggers and how to improve your cognitive and physical health through healthy eating and holistic treatments like yoga and meditation.

Meet Our Staff

The signs that you need a cocaine addiction treatment center might not be physical signs but rather a complete change in personality or behavior, especially no longer participating in Hobbies or socializing with friends and family.

It can also extend to financial or legal troubles. Individuals with a severe addiction to cocaine can all too easily spend money intended for things like bills on another hit or find themselves in legal trouble because of driving under the influence or possession.

If you notice the signs, let Prevail Recovery Center help with our cocaine treatment center.

Prevail Recovery Provides South Florida Outpatient Treatment for Cocaine Abuse


At Prevail Recovery, we know that recovering from cocaine can be particularly challenging when it comes to handling the long-term withdrawal symptoms and cravings. That is why we provide a handful of different therapies in addition to your individual and group therapy. We know that recovery isn’t one-size-fits-all, so we work with you to find an array of complementary therapies that might fit your situation best.

Animal-Assisted Therapy

Did you know that petting a cat actually releases compounds in your body that reduce blood pressure? But you don’t need to have a pet cat at home in order to get similar benefits. As part of our rehab program, Prevail Recovery features animal-assisted therapy. In this type of therapy, you have an opportunity to visit different animal shelters and animal facilities like horse stables and interact with and care for the animals.

Doing so helps you rebuild your independence, start caring for others, and reap the physical and mental benefits of petting a cat and lowering your blood pressure.


Wilderness Therapy

Being outside has innumerable benefits. Just looking at the blues of the ocean or the greens of nature can spark creativity, help you work better in a group, improve your communication, boost your mood, and much more.

With our wilderness therapy, you get a chance to go outside, work as a group and learn actionable skills as you participate in things like walks on the beach, horseback riding, or hiking.


Drug and alcohol abuse can have significant effects on your body, disrupting communication between your brain and your body, diminishing things like immune response, and generally making it more difficult for your body to absorb the nutrients it needs on a cellular level.

As part of our goal to help you improve all aspects of your mind and body, we offer nutrition services that teach you how to eat healthily and what to consume to rebuild your cellular health and immune response.

Relapse Prevention

Our care extends beyond your partial hospitalization or outpatient program with Prevail Recovery Center. We aim to provide relapse prevention services that give you the education you need to apply life skills and coping mechanisms long after you graduate from our program. We also emphasize available resources for career and education progression, sober living opportunities, and participation in ongoing care such as NA or AA.


Not sure how to approach your loved one about their addiction? With Prevail Recovery, we not only offer a wide range of services with flexible schedules and a handful of successful therapies, but we also help you plan interventions.

With the help of a professional, staging an intervention can be a simple process where close family members and friends can explain how addiction has hurt them and why they want their loved ones to get help from Prevail Recovery Center.

With Prevail Recovery, you get top-rated treatment, so don’t wait. Reach out to our team today to learn how our South Florida treatment programs can help you during recovery.
