Cocaine addiction treatment and rehab

Cocaine is a powerful and dangerous stimulant whose use can cause significant physical and psychological harm, including the development of a cocaine addiction. If you are worried about your use of cocaine, Priory’s free initial addiction assessment offers an opportunity to discuss this with an experienced therapist and is completely confidential.

When you use cocaine, the drug can cause a variety of intense yet short-lived pleasurable effects, prompting repeated use in order to re-experience the pleasurable effects. However, users can also experience a physical and psychological crash when the effects of cocaine wear off. Longer-term, it can lead to people suffering from anxietydepression, paranoia and panic attacks.

In this manner, one-time cocaine use can quickly turn into a pattern of misuse, which can lead to cocaine addiction.

However, with proper professional care, you can regain control over your life, end your dependence upon cocaine, and resume your pursuit of a happier and healthier life.

Treating cocaine addiction

The first step on the road to recovery is accepting that there is a problem. Detoxification and psychotherapy are some of the methods that are used to treat drug dependency, with abstinence being the ultimate goal. Treatment for drug dependency is based on an intensive programme of group work and individual counselling. At Priory, our specialists will encourage you to identify your drug dependency, and then help to remedy these problems. This involves identifying new ways of coping through building self-esteem and positive attitudes.

Types of treatment for cocaine addiction

Depending upon your specific needs and goals, your path to recovery from cocaine addiction may include a combination of the following:

  • Cocaine detox programme – a medically monitored environment in which you can rid your body of cocaine with maximum safety and minimal discomfort
  • Residential rehabilitation – intensive treatment services from multidisciplinary teams of consultant psychiatrists and psychologists, therapists and nurses, with 24-hour care and support
  • Day therapy – structured and supportive care to promote continued recovery, with flexible treatment hours to accommodate your personal and professional responsibilities
  • Outpatient therapy – ideal as a step-down from day therapy, providing limited ongoing support as you transition out of care and re-establish a healthy independent lifestyle
  • 1:1 therapy – provides a confidential environment in which you can process successes and setbacks, address issues that you may be hesitant to bring up in a group session and receive personalised feedback from an experienced professional
  • Group therapy – allows you to share your insights, learn from the experiences of others, and practice healthy interpersonal communication skills under the guidance and supervision of one or more trained and experienced professionals

The types of treatment that you receive as you recover from your cocaine addiction at Priory, will depend upon a variety of factors, including your needs and goals, your progress to date, the presence of any co-occurring mental health issues, and the level at which you are currently receiving care.
