Cocaine Addiction Treatment and Rehab

What might begin as a curious experiment with cocaine or a “walk on the wild side” can grow into a legitimate illness. A cocaine addiction requires medical help, despite the ever-present stigma that addicts can quit whenever they decide. Each day someone abuses cocaine, they are gambling with their life, and the longer the problem continues the higher their risk of severe consequences. Addiction rehab saves lives and has helped millions of cocaine addicts overcome the seemingly insurmountable. If you or someone you know struggles with cocaine abuse, taking immediate action can stop the issue in its tracks. Our team at The Recovery Village is here to answer the call and to assure you that it is never too late to seek help.
Many cocaine addicts face a reputation of being “coke heads” or “junkies” making the conscious decision to self-destruct. Part of The Recovery Village’s founding principles, and those of the rehab community as a whole, is to give everyone fair treatment and not pass judgment on our patients when they walk in with a problem. Cocaine use may begin as an ill-advised choice or the result of peer pressure, but once addiction takes hold it should be treated like any other illness a doctor might treat. Our job is not to shame people for their predicament, but to work together towards a solution so they can return to a happy and healthy life.

Drug rehab for cocaine addiction is a multi-faceted process designed with the individual in mind. If you’re struggling with cocaine dependency, you need personalized care from the right people. Our staff at The Recovery Village is trained to get to know each patient and evaluate their needs from every angle, so we can handle it right the first time. For many, addiction is a battle they will fight to some degree for the rest of their life. We strive to give each patient the right tools to remain active in their sobriety no matter where life takes them. The Recovery Village offers several cocaine addiction treatment plans to suit every patient’s needs. Our cocaine rehab treatment offerings:

  • Medically-supervised detoxification
  • Partial hospitalization programming
  • Residential inpatient treatment
  • Outpatient treatment
  • Intensive outpatient treatment programming
  • Dual diagnosis treatment
  • Aftercare planning and relapse prevention

The initial stage of any rehab success story is an accurate evaluation and a complete detox from whatever substance (or substances) a patient has been abusing. During this time, the treatment staff will assess the patient for any co-occurring psychological disorders or emotional issues that may be playing a role in their addiction. Because more than half of cocaine addicts struggle with some mental disorder — whether it be depression, schizophrenia or anything in between — specialized cocaine addiction rehab often involves additional therapies to address these issues.

Following a proper diagnosis and successful detox, our team will lay out a proposed treatment plan that will either involve an extended supervised stay within our Florida facility (inpatient), a closely monitored regimen of visits and home care (outpatient), or a combination of the two. Patients will take part in a series of therapy sessions, exercises and meetings designed to train the brain to live without cocaine. Our doctors may also supplement the treatment with small amounts of medication to help restore normal functions and temper any side effects.

Treatment will go as long as necessary for each individual’s needs. Once a patient graduates from rehab, our doctors will stay involved by recommending outside counseling groups, healthy living habits and regular follow-ups — all tools that will help you to remain vigilant in sobriety. As a recovering addict will likely tell you, the battle is just beginning after rehab ends. Working with The Recovery Village will set you up for success and prepare you for the long road ahead.

For inpatient cocaine addiction rehab, patients move into The Recovery Village for the duration of treatment. The recommended rehab process takes at least 28 days, but research shows that the longer a cocaine addict stays in rehab, the more likely they are to make a full recovery and avoid relapse.

Living at The Recovery Village during treatment affords our patients 24/7 access to medical and clinical personnel trained to provide emergency care if and when it becomes necessary, in addition to making patients feel comfortable for the entirety of their stay. A central benefit of residential rehab is the sober environment, which removes addicts in recovery from their standard addiction triggers and temptations. It is understandably difficult for anyone to leave the comforts of home, let alone during a difficult time like recovery. We offer plush beds, private bathrooms, a fitness center and healthy, balanced meals to make our patients’ stay as pleasant as possible. To ensure your peace of mind, we also guarantee confidentiality to all of our patients.

Inpatient cocaine addiction treatment begins with detoxification, during which our medical team will closely monitor your condition to make sure your body rids itself of cocaine as smoothly as possible. Our doctors may use withdrawal medications to ease your symptoms depending on the severity of withdrawal.

Once detox is complete, patients will undergo a series of therapies designed to target their addictive behaviors. Therapy sessions will be spread out over the course of your stay, and will vary in frequency based on each individual’s diagnosis and progress. Patients also take part in group therapy sessions, which allows the larger Recovery Village community to engage with one another on topics such as trauma survival, family problems and sexuality. Finally, The Recovery Village offers alternative therapies, which have been proven to enhance patient self-esteem and provide a sense of relaxation during rehab. These can include activities such as yoga and equine therapy.

The Recovery Village staff employs only the most qualified and passionate group of addiction professionals — many of whom are recovered addicts themselves — who have dedicated their lives to help addicts overcome addiction and remain sober. Inpatient rehabilitation is the main focus of our organization and should be considered for anyone struggling with a cocaine problem.

Inpatient treatment is not for everyone — whether for reasons of logistics, budget, comfort, or some combination of all three. If you or someone close to you is battling a cocaine addiction, it is important to know that you have options when it comes to undergoing rehab at The Recovery Village. If residential rehab isn’t ideal, we offer outpatient programs that allow you to stay at home while undergoing a similar treatment process. Many cocaine patients will even continue with outpatient care after completing an inpatient program in order to stay active in their recovery.

When a patient comes into The Recovery Village to be evaluated for treatment, the doctor will discuss our various options and whether or not you are a good candidate for outpatient treatment. If an outpatient program is elected, the patient will work with the doctors and clinicians to structure a timeline and schedule the necessary therapy sessions. Depending on your situation and the available resources, you may be asked to commute to the clinic for therapy sessions, while having home visits from recovery staff in other cases. Your overall progress will be monitored every step of the way, with a certain degree of supervision related to your activities and, in some cases, carefully prescribed medications to deal with cocaine withdrawal symptoms.

Outpatient rehab may be preferable for patients who cannot afford to leave their job or their family to take part in residential treatment. For recovery addicts transitioning out of an inpatient program, The Recovery Village offers various outpatient options to help make the transition easier to handle. If a recovering cocaine addict is also dealing with mental health treatment, or is returning to a less-than-desirable home life, outpatient rehab can offer them the help they need before being returning to the demands of regular life.

During each new patient’s treatment planning, The Recovery Village staff will go over the various forms of therapy involved in rehab. For patients dealing with cocaine addiction, we recommend cognitive behavioral therapy to help address the psychological dependency on the drug. In addition to this one-on-one therapy, all patients also participate in a variety of group therapy sessions. The combined therapy approach is the crux of any successful rehabilitation program, touching on all factors in a patient’s life that are a direct or indirect influence on their substance problem.  

Group therapy provides an outlet for cocaine addicts to bond with others in recovery, share their personal experiences, and get a new perspective on the different issues in their life. One or more skilled therapists will facilitate these sessions, when multiple patients come together and discuss their family lives, traumatic experiences, history of drug abuse and additional struggles like mental health problems or eating disorders. This group process is a proven way to make recovering addicts feel welcomed and empowered after feeling like outcasts in the outside world. In addition to standard group therapy sessions, we offer alternative therapies such as:

  • Art therapy
  • Meditation and yoga
  • Massage therapy and acupuncture
  • Therapeutic gardening
  • Dietary counseling
  • Family education

The goal of group therapy at The Recovery Village is to give patients much-needed motivation and feelings of belonging so they can rebuild their self-esteem and self-worth. The Recovery Village also integrates alcohol and drug education to give patients a better understanding on how substances impact the brain and body, and the other risks of continuing to use.

Towards the end of a therapy timeline, our rehab staff will offer discharge planning and continuing care planning to ensure a smooth transition following graduation. They will also educate patients on the best methods of self-help, and refer them to counselors and community meetups that can help reinforce their sobriety and give them a continued outlet to discuss their struggles.

The correlation between cocaine addiction and mental illness is staggering. Approximately 9 million Americans are living with a co-occurring substance use disorder and mental health problem, with more than half of cocaine patients meeting the criteria for some mental health disorder. In the rehab field, this is known as a dual diagnosis.

A dual diagnosis is a precarious thing to treat, and demands an integrated treatment approach that addresses both illnesses at the same time. Unfortunately, only 7.4 percent of Americans with a dual diagnosis receive the help they need. Co-occurring disorders can become increasingly complicated at a rapid rate, and put the patient at a greater risk for more serious health problems, as well as extreme lifestyle choices and trouble with the law. If someone you know may be living with co-occurring disorders, The Recovery Village can help design a comprehensive rehab program to fit their needs before it is too late.

Mental health disorders are often a direct contributor to a person’s decision to experiment with substances or develop an abusive habit. In many other cases, an addict’s drug or alcohol abuse can cause symptoms of mental illness to develop. Some of the common co-occurring mental health disorders seen in cocaine patients include:

  • Depressive disorder (i.e. depression)
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Attention deficit disorder (ADD)
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Autism spectrum disorders (ASD)
  • Eating disorders (e.g. anorexia and bulimia)
  • Borderline personality disorder
  • Schizophrenia

During a cocaine addiction evaluation at The Recovery Village, we screen each patient for any symptoms of a potential dual diagnosis so they won’t be overlooked and left untreated during the rehab process. The only way for addicts to get and stay clean is to ensure their mental health is cared for, first and foremost. Any worrisome signs in your loved one, such as mood swings or unpredictable behavior, may indicate a possible mental health disorder that requires medical attention.

Before deciding if cocaine addiction rehab is right for you, it is important to learn about the cost of treatment from the rehab clinics you are considering. The fees vary with every patient and the options they elect for their care. For example, because residential rehab carries the additional costs of room and board, inpatient is typically more expensive than outpatient treatment.

A number of insurance companies offer some degree of assistance for necessary substance abuse rehab, and The Recovery Village is willing to discuss flexible payment plans and other forms of assistance with our prospective patients. If you or your loved ones are concerned about the cost of rehab, do your research and learn about the different routes to take. Recovering from cocaine addiction and living a healthy life should not be something that gets put off or ignored.

Under the Affordable Care Act, addiction rehabilitation for cocaine and other substances is considered a primary benefit with mandated coverage. With that being said, you should reach out to your insurance provider to learn about your specific coverages and what percentage of rehab might be covered. In order to accurately assess your claim, you should have as much information available as possible, and be prepared to answer questions or schedule an evaluation.

Intake coordinators at The Recovery Village may also be able to assist you with this process. Call us today to discuss your situation, and our staff may be able to speak with your insurance company on your behalf. We have experience working with numerous insurance providers and patients across the entire spectrum of coverage.

We understand the urgency of cocaine addiction, and that not everyone has the right health insurance. We do not want to deny you or your loved ones the necessary care to overcome this problem. Financing options are available for many patients, and our intake coordinators will work closely with you to find any state and local government assistance that you qualify for.

Help may be available through the Veterans Administration, Medicare, Medicaid, or other programs, for example. Patients often apply for personal loans as well in order to get treatment underway and begin the healing process. Please take the time to call The Recovery Village to introduce yourself and discuss all of your possible payment options.
