Cocaine withdrawal may be less physically severe than withdrawal from alcohol. Cocaine is also considered less addictive than heroin. However, the withdrawal from any chronic substance abuse is very serious. There is an underlying risk of suicide or relapse and overdose.

At Nexstep Medical Detox, highly skilled detox staff monitors each client’s progress with 24/7 monitoring from arrival until departure. Nexstep offers a different kind of detox: detox supported by medical, psychological, behavior treatment and counseling. Use of sedatives, such as Valium, is not recommended because it simply shifts addiction from one substance to another.

Minimum treatment includes an additional 60 days of advanced counseling, ongoing medical supervision, and a supportive therapeutic environment. Symptoms and cravings usually disappear over time.

If you or someone you love are struggling with any type of medication abuse, call Nexstep Medical Detox at (877) 983-3869 for a detox treatment plan and tools for obtaining and maintaining long-term sobriety.
