Cocaine Crack Addiction Treatment
Cocaine (benzoylmethylecgonine) is a crystalline alkaloid obtained from the leaves of the coca plant. Cocaine is a powerful CNS (central nervous system) stimulant, whose effects last from between 15 minutes to roughly an hour.
As of 2014 there are very few mainstream treatment options available for individuals who are addicted to stimulants. After prolonged use of cocaine, your brain’s neurochemistry no longer functions in an effective manner. You need to constantly increase your dose to experience the same effects — and as with most drugs — tolerance sets in. Crack and intravenous use of cocaine are notoriously difficult habits to break away from; when your neurochemistry has been hijacked it’s very difficult to follow-through on treatment plans and other goals.
Ibogaine has proven extremely beneficial for dealing with the obsessive cravings that arise when stopping use of cocaine, and ibogaine’s long-lasting metabolite noribogaine provides an effective solution to significantly alleviating anhedonia (literally: the loss of pleasure, one of the worst side-effects of cocaine withdrawal). Ibogaine treatment will help you make it through the dysphoria and depression of PAWS (post-acute withdrawal syndrome).
At Clear Sky Recovery’s ibogaine treatment program in Cancun, we have an optimized protocol designed specifically for individuals who abuse stimulants. Ibogaine can provide a tremendous boost to realigning your neurochemistry by helping your brain replenish dopamine receptors that have been destroyed or desensitized by chronic cocaine or crack use.
