What is the most effective treatment for cocaine addiction? We’ve found that the best practice in the treatment of cocaine addiction involves a unique combination of treatment methods. This unique combination of treatments includes mindfulness therapy, a modernised application of the 12 Steps as well as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).
Individuals who are seeking treatment for cocaine or crack cocaine abuse at The Cabin also have the option of complementing their rehab programme with yoga, physical fitness and art therapy. When recovery targets both mind and body, clients not only learn how to live without their addiction but also learn how to build a healthy life that’s worth staying clean for. Family members are also encouraged to join our free, three-day family addiction treatment programme which helps family members gain a better understanding of how the disease of addiction works. When they possess adequate knowledge about cocaine addiction, they can form the support network that the cocaine user needs. The effects of family involvement are not speculative; they have been proven to work, which is why we at The Cabin encourage family involvement and offer further support to clients once they graduate from our primary programme.
In many cases, yes. Medical detox can represent the beginning of the recovery process for cocaine addiction. The medical team at the drug rehab facility will devise specific detox strategies that are targeted to help addicts tackle withdrawal symptoms most safely and effectively. After the detox phase, the type of recovery care will depend on the intensity and length of the addiction, and ultimately the individual’s needs. Further treatment options may include paired dual diagnosis treatment, individual and group therapy, outpatient treatment and, of course, inpatient rehab.

There are many benefits to choosing inpatient treatment for cocaine addiction:
In many Western countries, an inpatient cocaine addiction recovery centre may cost anywhere from US$30,000 to US$60,000 per month. However, this varies from centre to centre, and indeed country to country. Other factors that can affect the cost include the staff members’ expertise and qualifications, the treatment duration and the level of care you are receiving.
Yes, you can use your insurance coverage to pay for cocaine addiction treatment if your insurance policy covers this kind of treatment. For example, the Affordable Care Act in the US states that substance use disorder treatment is an essential healthcare benefit for Americans with insurance. You should keep in mind that certain state laws can affect the insurance coverage you get for addiction treatment. The Cabin’s highly experienced staff can reach out to your insurer on your behalf. We will identify and confirm your benefits so that you can begin treatment with ease. All you need to do is contact us today.
Recovery is a lifelong process. The 28-day or 56-day addiction treatment programme is but the beginning of the journey – albeit an essential one. It often takes some time to get back to where you were before your addiction took hold. Whenever you feel down, just know that there are many people – your counsellors, family members and friends – who want you to build a happy and fulfilling life after your treatment. After completing inpatient rehab and medical detox, a recovering addict will return to normal life. If not properly managed, old hobbies, friends, family and work can trigger temptations and cravings. That is why most relapses occur in the first six months after rehab. The importance of understanding your triggers cannot be understated. It is never too early to develop a game plan for continuing care – The common types of continuing care include:
Indeed, one of the biggest benefits of residential rehab is the freedom and time to focus all attention on recovery. With the stressors of everyday life such as work, family and social commitments removed – at least for this short time, clients can focus on nothing but getting better. Rehab for cocaine addicts opens up many new achievable goals and possibilities that may have once seemed unattainable. Those in recovery need to be prepared to improve their lifestyle and avoid walking down the same path again. Some individuals may have the impression that entering a sober life often means they are destined to become helpless, lonely and bored. On the contrary, there is a wonderful range of drug-free activities that clients can engage in once they leave treatment. Some of these may include:
As you can see, there are countless other activities and events to check out. Those in recovery generally discover that life becomes more and more interesting the longer they have been in recovery. Building a daily routine also helps. When we follow a fixed and familiar structure, including having a daily list of things to do, we find we can keep our minds busy and away from the old unhelpful thoughts that triggered cocaine use, to begin with.
Cocaine became an infamous and popular party drug in the 1970s and 1980s. It is considered an illegal stimulant and continues to be an enormous social and legal problem today.
Cocaine came into existence between 1890 and 1945 and Asia was one of the world’s largest markets for the drug. It was initially regarded as a medicine for users as far apart as Shanghai and Bombay. Today, cocaine addiction remains prevalent in the United States and around most of the world. Cocaine addiction has also led to unfortunate cases of heart attacks and deaths caused by overdose year after year. It is estimated that over 1.5 million individuals, who are older than 12, abuse cocaine (including crack cocaine) monthly in the US. In other words, about 0.6 per cent of the U.S. population is addicted to cocaine and/or crack cocaine. The age group that abuses cocaine the most is adults between the ages of 18 and 25. However, the truth is that people of all ages can engage in cocaine abuse. Which gender abuses the ever-dangerous drug? Research has shown that men are twice as likely to use or abuse cocaine as compared to women.
Cocaine is a powerful and addictive stimulant drug. The source of cocaine is ‘Erythroxylon Coca’. The leaves of the Coca plant have been chewed and ingested by people in South America for thousands of years for their stimulant effects. However, humans managed to isolate cocaine hydrochloride, the purified chemical, from the plant centuries ago. In the first half of the 1900s, purified cocaine was used as the core active ingredient in a wide variety of elixirs and tonics. People believed that these products could treat a great array of illnesses. You might already have heard that cocaine was even used as an ingredient in the early formula of Coca-Cola®. Before synthetic local anaesthetic was widely developed, surgeons would utilise cocaine to block pain. However, medical professionals soon learnt that the powerfully addictive substance could adversely alter brain function and structure if used repeatedly. Today, cocaine is classified as a Schedule II drug in the United States. This also indicates that cocaine is an easy-to-abuse substance. Doctors are still known to administer it for medical use, provided they can produce legitimate reasons. For example, local anaesthesia for throat, ear and eye surgeries.
Cocaine is also a street drug. Its appearance resembles a white, fine, crystalline powder. Cocaine goes by many names on the street such as Blow, Powder, Snow, C and Coke. Street coke dealers also cut or dilute cocaine by adding non-psychoactive ingredients such as flour, baking soda, talcum powder and cornstarch to increase profits. It is also common for cocaine to be mixed with psychoactive stimulants like amphetamine (speed); other drugs like heroin (also known as Speedball); and chemically related local anaesthetics like procaine. Addicts normally abuse two chemical forms of cocaine: the water-insoluble cocaine base and the water-soluble hydrochloride salt. Users either snort or inject the hydrochloride salt. The base form of cocaine is usually created by processing the drug with water, sodium bicarbonate or ammonia. The mixture is then heated to remove the hydrochloride. This produces a smokable substance known as ‘Crack’, or ‘Free-base’. Cocaine is much like other drugs of addiction. The drug targets and over-stimulates your brain. It negatively affects the user’s reward system, which is designed to release short-term feelings of pleasure. After repeated use, cocaine alters how the brain functions. It teaches the individual that they can only achieve the same feelings of euphoria if they use cocaine more often and in higher amounts.
The feelings of euphoria after using cocaine are often short-lived. Individuals who are addicted, or dependent on the drug often experience various negative physical and psychological effects. High levels of paranoia are common among cocaine abusers. They tend to lose touch with reality; these people may see or hear things that are not there. Individuals suffering from cocaine addiction have also been diagnosed with serious health problems on account of their drug use. These medical problems can include heart problems, respiratory failure, and nervous system complications – sometimes causing strokes. When cocaine addicts inject the substance, they may cause further damage without knowing it. Unsafe injecting practices are common and can dramatically increase the risk of infection at the injection site as well as contracting HIV or Hepatitis.
