Why Choose Inpatient Therapy for Cocaine Addiction?

The benefits of inpatient therapy for cocaine addiction are plentiful. Treatment will always be kept 100% confidential. Patients will be kept busy with scheduled therapy sessions. They have access to group and one-on-one daily counselling sessions. Individuals who are kicking the habit may experience intense emotions and severe drug cravings. With round-the-clock care, they can consult a support worker or counsellor who will be nearby in the rehab centre. Cocaine addiction therapy can produce more positive results if it is facilitated in a secluded location. When the individual is away from potential triggers and distractions, they will be better focused on their cocaine dependence treatment.

How Much Does Cocaine Inpatient Addiction Recovery Cost?

On average, cocaine inpatient addiction recovery may cost in the range of US$15,000. However, the actual cost of cocaine addiction rehab varies from facility to facility and programme to programme.

What Happens After Cocaine Addiction Treatment?

Sobriety is a lifelong process. You should not assume that the 28-day or 56-day addiction treatment programme will fix all your problems. Oftentimes, it takes some time to get back to where you were before your addiction. Whenever you feel down, just know that there are many people – your counsellors, family members and friends – who want you to make it through life after cocaine addiction treatment. After completing inpatient rehab and medical detox, a recovering addict will return to normal life. Hobbies, friends, family and work are the events and circles that can trigger temptations and cravings. That is why most relapses occur in the first six months after cocaine addiction rehab. You need to understand your triggers to better guard against the coming difficulties. It is never too early to develop a game plan for continuing care. The common types of continuing care include:

  • Cocaine addiction support groups: You should find a support group of any kind, whether it is based on the 12-step model or not. SMART or Self-Management and Recovery Training is based on research-proven methods and teaches how to take control of addiction, thus making it a popular alternative to 12-step groups.
  • 12-Step meetings: Although these programs originated with Alcoholics Anonymous, it has grown to include many other drugs, including cocaine.
  • Regular check-ups: You need to be accountable for your actions. Hence, it is a sound idea to go for check-ups with a mental health professional at least four times a year. This ensures you are staying on course and making progress.
  • Individual therapies: It is important that you understand that an addiction is not just a chemical dependence. It can be linked to a lifestyle that is associated with constant stress and other triggers that lead to drug abuse. CBT is designed to help recovering addicts understand their underlying issues and address them in a holistic manner.

One of the biggest benefits to residential rehab is the freedom to focus all attention on recovery. Gone are the everyday stressors of work, family and social commitments. At least for this short time, clients are able to focus on nothing but getting better. Rehab for cocaine addicts opens up many new achievable goals and possibilities that may have once seemed far-fetched. Recovering addicts have 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 there is a need to cope with helplessness, loneliness and boredom. But on the contrary, there is a wonderful range of drug-free activities at the rehab centre that can provide a social and mental outlet. Some of the new hobbies that recovering addicts can pick up include:

  • Playing a new instrument
  • Playing video games
  • Attend seminars and conventions
  • Playing competitive sports
  • Being a volunteer
  • Taking a class (e.g. cooking)
  • Going to the movies with loved ones

As you can see, there are countless other activities and events to check out. You do not need to be high to enjoy life after cocaine addiction treatment. Building a daily routine also helps! When you follow a fixed and familiar structure as well as have a daily list of things to do, you won’t have random thoughts of boredom or using cocaine.

More Information About Cocaine Addiction

Cocaine became a popular party drug in the 1970s and 1980s. It is considered an illegal stimulant drug and continues to be a enormous social and legal problem today. The drug came into existence between 1890 and 1945, when Asia was one of the world’s largest markets for cocaine. It was initially regarded as an intoxicant and medicine for users as far apart as Shanghai and Bombay. Today, cocaine addiction remains prevalent in the United States as well as globally. Addiction to cocaine has also led to unfortunate cases of heart attacks and deaths caused by overdose each year. It is estimated that over 1.5 million individuals, who are older than 12, abuse cocaine (includes crack cocaine) monthly in the US. In other words, about 0.6 percent of the U.S. population is addicted to cocaine. The age group that abuses cocaine the most consists of adults who are between the ages of 18 and 25. However, the truth is that it is possible for people of all ages to engage in cocaine abuse. Which gender abuses the ever-dangerous cocaine? Research has shown that men are twice as likely to use or abuse the drug as compared to women.

What is Cocaine?

Cocaine is a powerful and extremely addictive stimulant drug. The source of cocaine is Erythroxylon coca. These coca leaves have been chewed and ingested by people in South America for thousands of years. People ingested those leaves for their stimulant effects. 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. By now, 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 utilized 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 known to administer it for medical uses, 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. It has aliases 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 tainted with psychoactive stimulants like amphetamine; 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’ due to the crackling sound it makes when smoked. 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 works. It teaches the individual that they can only achieve the same feelings of euphoria if they use cocaine more often and in higher amounts.

Addiction Effects of Cocaine Usage

The feelings of euphoria are often short-lived. Individuals who are addicted to cocaine often experience various negative physical and psychological effects. High levels of paranoia is common among cocaine abusers. They tend to lose touch with reality; these people may see something or hear sounds that do not exist. Individuals suffering from cocaine addiction have also been diagnosed with serious health problems. These medical problems pertain to heart problems, respiratory failure, and nervous system complications that cause strokes. When a cocaine addict injects the substance, they may cause further damage without knowing it. They may be too distracted to be aware that they are sharing needles. By doing so, they increase the risks of infection of the injection site as well as contracting HIV or Hepatitis. Find out more about Cocaine Abuse Signs and Symptoms
