Effective treatment of cocaine addiction with hypnotherapy
7th October, 20160 Comments
Are you spending every moment of the day yearning for your next hit? Is all of your money and time being spent searching for and using cocaine?
Using cocaine may provide you with a temporary sense of euphoria and confidence, but long-term cocaine use will only leave you depressed, with intense cravings for more.
Over time, cocaine will cause physical and mental deterioration. Symptoms of this include depression, agitation, and nervousness, exhaustion without the ability to sleep, distress and loss of appetite. This addiction can destroy relationships with family, career, and health. There is evidence to suggest that regular use can increase the risk of seizures, stroke, brain aneurysms and motor related conditions, including Parkinson’s disease.
Sometimes it may seem like you are alone and the only thing that makes you feel good is the high from cocaine. However, you are not alone. You can get clean again.
That may sound impossible right now, but it is very true.
Maybe you have tried to get help already and nothing seems to work? Well, traditional drug rehabilitation programs are not equipped to reduce the intensity of cocaine cravings.
Hypnotherapy is different
Clinical hypnotherapy can help you break free from your addiction. It can help you release yourself from the prison sentence you have been living under. There is a confident and healthy person behind your addiction. Hypnotherapy can help you find that person.
The use of hypnotherapy has been shown to be an effective and safe treatment for cocaine addiction. It can be used to sustain abstinence and to reduce and completely remove drug use.
Cocaine only allows your brain to think in a way that is short-term goal oriented, and this is why it leaves individuals with heightened mood swings, which eventually turn to dark thoughts and misery.
Hypnotherapy helps reprogramme the way your brain thinks. It reduces the likelihood that triggers for cravings will be initiated. It is also useful during the recovery and detoxification phases of the process, by allowing you to be free of the fixation on any of the behaviours that cocaine users usually engage in, but are difficult to cease. It has been shown to reduce cravings, promote a calm sense of well-being, and improve your ability to live a drug-free life.
Hypnotherapy is effective in assisting your recovery from cocaine addiction because it changes the way you think about yourself and increases your awareness of why you became addicted to cocaine. Together, with the right therapist, you will go on a journey of recovery. They will help you get healthy and become the person you want to be. You will be provided with tools and effective coping strategies to fight cravings.
If you, or a loved one, are struggling with cocaine addiction, take the first step today and reach out.
