Cocaine addiction treatment
We are still able to offer expert inpatient addiction treatment during this time and many of our addiction services, including our free addiction assessment, are now taking place online or over the phone. For more information on Priory’s approach to addiction treatment during the current COVID-19 outbreak, please access our dedicated page.
Cocaine is a powerful and dangerous stimulant which can cause significant physical and psychological harm, including the development of a cocaine addiction.
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 anxiety, depression, 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.

Cocaine addiction treatment at Priory
Our consultant-led teams of addiction specialists provide focused treatment for single and multi-substance addictions. We offer flexible rehabilitation and addiction detox options, available in a location that is convenient for you, where you will receive world class treatment aided by round-the-clock staffing and highly experienced nursing staff. Treatment for cocaine addiction can take place as part of our 28-day Addiction Treatment Programme, with the length and type of treatment that you receive, dependent on your unique condition and the severity of your addiction.
The first step on the road to recovery is accepting that you have a problem. Detoxification and psychotherapy are some of the methods that are used to treat drug dependency at Priory, with abstinence being the ultimate goal. Treatment for drug dependency is based on an intensive programme of group work and individual support & counselling. At Priory, our specialists will encourage you to identify your drug dependency, and then help to remedy these problems, which involve identifying new ways of coping through building self-esteem and positive attitudes.
Types of cocaine addiction treatment at Priory
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 assisted withdrawal detoxification 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 care therapy - structured and supportive care to promote continued recovery from cocaine addiction, with flexible treatment hours to accommodate your personal and professional responsibilities. This type of care allows you to continue with personal and professional responsibilities, where you would attend therapy for a number of days each week, but return to your home each evening.
Outpatient therapy - ideal as a step-down from day care, provides limited ongoing support as you transition out of care and re-establish a healthy independent lifestyle with the required techniques and coping mechanisms to return to your daily life without the need to use cocaine.
1:1 therapy - provides a confidential environment in which you can process successes and setbacks during your recovery journey, allowing you to 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 who are recovering from cocaine addiction or other mental health conditions and addictions, 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.
