Cocaine is a powerful and addictive substance. For decades, its use was glamorized, with many viewing it as the drug of the rich and famous. Now we know that cocaine addiction is far from glamorous. Cocaine dependence can morph your behaviors until not even your closest friends or family members recognize who you are. Addiction to cocaine can also lead to severe mental and physical health problems.
The good news is that, contrary to the popular belief that this condition is a lifelong illness, there is a non-12 Step cure for cocaine addiction that’s based on your empowerment and ability to change.

The Sanctuary at Sedona founder Dean Taraborelli discusses in detail the nature of cocaine addiction and The Sanctuary’s approach to the treatment of cocaine addiction with its integrative holistic addiction recovery program and getting to the root cause.
What Is Cocaine Addiction?
Cocaine is a powerful drug, and it provides a rush of energy that can prove very alluring. But this intense rush wears off quickly, and ever-increasing amounts become necessary to maintain the high. Because of this escalating cycle, compulsive cocaine use often becomes extremely life-consuming.
Cocaine produces a false sense of confidence that can be highly appealing to someone with a negative self-image. The euphoric sensations it delivers can mask boredom and emptiness. Feelings of competency and ultra-alertness while high on cocaine cover up feelings of inadequacy in real life.
It depletes the brain’s natural feel-good chemicals, leading to extra-depressing comedowns. And because the part of the brain that it affects is part of our survival system, the brain comes to depend on it — making it very difficult to quit. This is why cocaine addiction feels so inescapable.
