Cocaine Rehab

Cocaine RehabAlthough other drugs may be in the news cycle more, cocaine is still a major factor in emergency room overdose visits, and its use has been on the rise since 2014. It is  It’s estimated to be  current use is  1.5 million people in the U.S. per month.

Cocaine is a street drug which is a stimulant. This causes an intense burst of energy, alertness and high feeling. It also leads to paranoia, irritability, aggression and sensitivity.

It is a very addictive drug, and experts describe this process as:

“As with other drugs, repeated use of cocaine can cause long-term changes in the brain’s reward circuit and other brain systems, which may lead to addiction. The reward circuit eventually adapts to the extra dopamine caused by the drug, becoming steadily less sensitive to it. As a result, people take stronger and more frequent doses to feel the same high they did initially, and to obtain relief from withdrawal.”

There is hope and help available if you or someone you love are struggling with cocaine addiction. Millions live a sober life and have a healthy lifestyle because of rehab facilities.

Treatment Facilities for Cocaine Abusers

With drug abuse on the rise overall, and the opioid epidemic, it is no surprise that rehab and treatment facilities are needed more than ever. Cocaine addiction is a highly addictive substance and part of the rise in need for treatment facilities.

The number of people needing treatment is staggering with estimates that 22.5 million will need treatment, yet each year only about 4.5 million will actually enter into a rehab facility.

What is often seen are people that enter in to a treatment facility that have multiple issues going on, beyond substance use disorder. There will also be people there that are court ordered, and part of the criminal justice system, and as part of their sentence they must receive inpatient treatment.

When it comes to cocaine addiction, people who enter into a treatment facility for their dependence will likely be ones that have had relapses, or more severe, or longer use. Cocaine has truly become something they depend on.

One last type of person you will see in a rehab facility is they group that has lost everything, and needs intensive help, finding housing, knowing where their next meal is coming from, or help getting social services.

Who works at a cociane treatment facility?

Treatment facilities will have a large staff available to help you with your dependency on cocaine or other drugs, as well as the issues that came up with addiction.

Their job is to help keep lines of communication open so everyone knows how to help you best.

Medical staff will be on hand at many treatment facilities. These will include: nurses, nurse practitioners, doctors and psychiatrists or addiction specialists. They will help you with any immediate physical problems you may be having and prescribe medication as needed.

Intake staff will be the first people you meet and talk to. They are knowledgeable about the services that the rehab facility offers, and can help you decide on a level of care. You can often chat with them on the facility’s website.

What to look for in a rehab facility for cocaine addiction

One of the things that you should look for in a treatment facility for cocaine is that it as an accredited facility.

An accreditation is a process by which an organization demonstrates they meet stringent criteria for the facilities, staff, and treatment plans and procedures. There are a couple different bodies that can accredit an addiction rehab center:

  • Joint Commission: Accreditation, Health Care Certification (JCAHO)
  • Commission on Accreditation of Rehab Facilities (CARF)
  • National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers (NAATP)

Seeing if the facility is accredited and licensed to provide substance abuse treatment should be one of the first steps in finding the right rehab for you.

At our facility we are accredited by JCAHO and NAATP. We strive to hold the highest standards in substance abuse treatment.

It is important to think about what is absolutely necessary for you when it comes to a rehab facility for cocaine addiction. Ask these questions prior to entering in to treatment.

For example, if you need to have medication that requires medical staff be present to monitor for certain reactions, you need to make certain that your rehab facility has medical staff on hand.

Or if you think that you need to have peace and quiet for your recovery from cocaine dependency, then looking for one with semi-private or private rooms, and quiet areas or meditation spots will be right for you.

What is the cost of rehab for cocaine addiction?

Cocaine Recovery ProgramsDepending on where you go, rehab for cocaine addiction may or may not be affordable. At some of the luxury rehab centers, it could cost $100,000 a month for treatment. Fortunately most are not that expensive, but there still is a cost to them, that can be thousands for treatment.

The good news is that there are options for help. First, with most Americans carrying insurance, and that being more affordable, most carriers will pay for most or all  substance abuse and mental health treatment. Second, the federal and state governments are providing more money to treatment centers to  provide rehab for people who cannot afford it. You will likely qualify for that. And there are other assistance options available that your treatment center should be able to discuss with you upfront.

Do not let the cost stop you from making that first call!

Who needs cocaine inpatient treatment?

Cocaine as a drug of abuse is slowly starting to rise in popularity again. It is unfortunate to see that overdose deaths due to cocaine use are on the rise again, and over half a million people end up in an emergency room every year due to cocaine abuse and overdose.

Cocaine is a powerfully addictive stimulant that can cause multiple short and long-term health issues. The risk for overdose is high as people feel the high and invulnerable effects of the drug. This is a serious problem that needs treatment. But who needs inpatient treatment for cocaine addiction?

People who benefit most from an inpatient level of addiction treatment typically fall into one of three categories:

  • Individuals who are at a high risk of experiencing drug or alcohol withdrawal
  • Individuals who have experienced multiple relapses
  • Individuals who have tried a less intensive level of drug or alcohol treatment but were unable to stay clean

Most patients who come to us for inpatient cocaine rehab also struggle with a co-occurring mental health condition, such as depression or post-traumatic stress disorder, that needs to be addressed during addiction treatment.

Another factor to consider in choosing between inpatient and outpatient rehab options is whether you have a healthy and supportive home environment where your recovery will be a priority.

A residential treatment program where you will have a built-in system of support will probably be the most effective option and good fit for people who are struggling with home life, housing, or will be going back into unsupportive spaces.

How long will you stay at an inpatient rehab unit?

Inpatient rehab is very intense and lasts for a relatively short period of time. The average length of stay is 14 days. So, on average you work intensely on your recovery for 2 weeks.

Although 14 days is an average, some may graduate earlier, and some may stay an extra week or two, depending on their needs. This will be worked out between you and your rehab staff.

Some inpatient rehab units are equipped for long-term stays of months, for people with very severe addictions, mental health problems, or physical health needs.

What happens at inpatient rehab for cocaine addiction?

At an inpatient care unit, you will be living there 24/7 for your time in rehab for cocaine addiction. You will be living with others in the same circumstance, in either shared or private rooms.

During inpatient treatment, you will be receiving daily individual or group counseling to address the addiction, what led you to start using, psychiatric care for any medication you may need, and family therapy to help heal the wounds caused by cocaine addiction.

Also in rehab for cocaine addiction you will learn about:

  • Recovery philosophy and the nature of addiction
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy and how your thoughts and interpretations of events cause your emotions and actions
  • Expressive arts, and ways that healing can take place through artistic media like painting, drawing, or music
  • Relapse prevention, what puts your recovery in jeopardy, and what you can do to avoid those things or cope with them
  • Anger management and ways to channel emotion in a healthier manner
  • Addiction education on the nature of the disease model and how it impacts the mind
  • Psychoeducation on the mind, mood, and relationships
  • Medical education on cocaine and other drugs affect the body and the damage that addiction and prolonged use does

Some inpatient treatment centers will require attendance of alcoholics anonymous, narcotics anonymous, or other 12-step or support group meetings. They may even host meetings at their treatment facility.

Religious or spiritual services may be a part of your stay at the treatment center. There may be religious services on site, or they may take you to a place of worship of your own denomination.

Spirituality or a higher power are often used terms in inpatient rehab for cocaine and other drugs. It does not mean that religious or spiritual worship is required. There are support groups and services that focus solely on the individual and do not include a religious aspect.

What are the success rates for inpatient treatment?

This is an often asked question. People want to know there is hope, and that they are not wasting their time.

To get to the heart of the matter, depending on the study done, between 40-60% of the people who go through rehab for cocaine addiction will stay clean. Inpatient rehab will have a higher success rate than outpatient treatment.

But is the answer that simple?

This may seem like an obvious question; drug treatment is effective if an addict achieves sobriety and stays clean, right? However, it’s a bit more nuanced than that. According to the Office of National Drug Control Policy, there are many factors that determine successful treatment:

  • Reduced drug use, including complete abstinence, using the substance less frequently, using a smaller amount of the substance in general and per instance of use, and longer periods of time between relapses.
  • Improvements in employment, including working more days and/or getting involved in training programs or school.
  • Improvements in education, including attending more often and getting better grades.
  • Relationship improvements, including ones with friends, family, romantic partners, and coworkers.
  • Improved health, marked by fewer visits to the doctor and the ER, as well as fewer hospitalizations.
  • Better legal status– shown by fewer arrests and convictions, and fewer crimes committed.
  • Better mental health, marked by improved mood and personality traits, higher levels of cognition, and reduced psychotic states and need for treatment.
  • Improved public safety, including drug-related fires, car accidents, and trauma to yourself or others.

How long will you stay at a residential rehab unit?

Residential rehab is very intense and lasts for a relatively short period of time. On average, we will be working with a client for 14 days. You will be living at the treatment facility for the duration of the treatment.

Although 14 days is an average, some may graduate earlier, and some may stay longer. This is taken on an individual basis, as we treat you and your needs individual, in a person centered approach.
Some cocaine rehab facilities can offer longer-term treatment. Discuss what you need with the trained staff who provide intake services, so we may help you find the best level of care for your needs.

What happens at residential rehab for cocaine addiction?

Cocaine addiction did not happen overnight, and recovery will not happen that way either. You will be living at the facility 24/7 for the duration, although outings and family visits are possible.

During residential treatment, you will be receiving daily individual or group counseling to address the addiction. You will begin to learn what led you to start using.

Psychiatric and medical care are provided or coordinated by our staff. Medication can be prescribed to help treat underlying conditions.

Family therapy and family education are provided while you are in residential rehab for cocaine addiction. Family needs will be addressed, as the addiction hurt them as well.

Also in rehab for cocaine addiction you will learn about:

  • Recovery philosophy and the nature of addiction
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy and how your thoughts and interpretations of events cause your emotions and actions
  • Expressive arts, and ways that healing can take place through artistic media like painting, drawing, or music
  • Relapse prevention, what puts your recovery in jeopardy, and what you can do to avoid those things or cope with them
  • Anger management and ways to channel emotion in a healthier manner
  • Addiction education on the nature of the disease model and how it impacts the mind
  • Psychoeducation on the mind, mood, and relationships
  • Medical education on cocaine and other drugs affect the body and the damage that addiction and prolonged use does

Some residential treatment centers will require attendance of alcoholics anonymous, narcotics anonymous, or other 12-step or support group meetings. They may even host meetings at their treatment facility.

Spirituality or religious services are often encouraged by residential rehab facilities, especially for cocaine use. Although people are not turned away due to their specific religious beliefs, or non-beliefs, spirituality of some kind is thought to be a part of a healthy recovery.

What are the success rates for residential rehab?

It is no surprise this question gets asked. People need to know there is hope, and that they are not wasting their time.

Cocaine addiction treatment has a lifetime recovery rate of about 40-60% of the people who go through rehab will stay clean. Residential rehab will have a higher success rate than outpatient treatment.

Considering the addictive nature of cocaine, and residential rehab for it is only about 2 weeks, that is a good start. The more support you have, the better the chances of living in recovery.

There is more to it, however.

According to the Office of National Drug Control Policy, there are many factors that go into a successful outcome. Even if the person is not completely sober, what residential treatment does is that it causes:

  • Reduced drug use, including complete abstinence, or using the substance less frequently.
  • Improvements in employment, including working more days.
  • Improvements in education, including attending more often and getting better grades.
  • Relationship improvements, including ones with friends, family, romantic partners, and coworkers.
  • Improved health, marked by fewer visits to the doctor and the ER, as well as fewer hospitalizations.
  • Better legal status– shown by fewer arrests and convictions, and fewer crimes committed.
  • Better mental health, marked by improved mood and personality traits, higher levels of cognition, and reduced psychotic states and need for treatment.
  • Improved public safety with fewer run ins with police and fewer accidents

Cocaine residential rehab facilities offer many benefits beyond just addiction treatment. It is possible to improve many areas of your life at a rehab center.

Who needs outpatient cocaine treatment?

Cocaine Outpatient TreatmentCocaine has a long history of being a killer street drug. It’s popularity comes and goes in waves, and unfortunately cocaine use is on the rise again.

Drug abuse is rising, and it is sad to report that overdose deaths due to cocaine use are on the rise again, and over half a million people overdose and will end up in an emergency department as a result.

The deadliness of cocaine comes from its stimulant nature and the high and invulnerable feeling that people get from its use. It is a psychoactive drug known as a stimulant, which causes the nervous system to speed up and be more sensitive to information coming in.

People have a tremendous burst of energy and euphoria, followed by terrible paranoia and other problems. This leads to damage to your health and poor decision making which costs a lot in legal fees and ruined lives.

There is help available to people with a cocaine addiction. Rehab centers offer treatment options to you, that can fit in with your needs and life circumstance.

People who benefit most from an outpatient program for addiction treatment typically fall into one of these categories:

  • Individuals who are at risk of experiencing cocaine withdrawal
  • Individuals who have experienced a relapse
  • Individuals who are stepping down from a more intensive level of care
  • Individuals who need longer term support for their cocaine addiction

This is not an all inclusive list. There may be others, who for reasons of life circumstance, need to be seen in an outpatient setting. For example, if the inpatient unit is full, this is a way to get help and support while you wait for a spot to open.

Another factor to consider in choosing between levels of care for rehab options is if you have support at home, or a safe and stable place to live. Inpatient can provide stability and routine and help you figure out next steps, while outpatient supports you while you are back at home.

An outpatient program for cocaine dependence is a good fit for people who need longer  term support in their recovery. In an inpatient setting, you will have done some of the hard work, and now in outpatient, you get a chance to practice the skills you learned.

How long will you stay in an outpatient rehab unit?

Outpatient or intensive outpatient treatment can last for different amounts of time for different people. We work with you to sort out what you need to support your recovery.

In an outpatient program, you will be meeting with a therapist on a weekly basis. The number of times a week may vary, and you will be in either individual or group counseling.

An intensive outpatient program (IOP) is one where you will receive extra support and meet with a therapist weekly as well, and be in several group treatment sessions weekly. This will be a set schedule for you to follow and provides more structure and support for people who need it.

What happens at outpatient rehab for cocaine dependence?

Outpatient or intensive outpatient levels of care are the least intensive levels. You will live at home, and attend individual or group therapy for a few hours a week.

Cocaine dependence and codependency impacts people and their families. That is part of the outpatient treatment program. We will work with you and your family to come up with appropriate treatment goals.

Intensive outpatient rehab for cocaine addiction has a more rigorous requirement for attendance, often requiring the person attend a couple of group therapy sessions a week, plus individual therapy as needed.

Outpatient rehab for cocaine addiction is for people with  mental health problems, or physical health need as well. This is another way the outpatient can support you through your recovery.

Outpatient treatment, is not as structured, and better for providing ongoing support for people that are well into their recovery. It will be individual or group therapy as needed weekly.

Also in outpatient rehab for cocaine addiction you will learn about:

  • Recovery philosophy and the nature of addiction
  • Basics in recovery, teaching the group about recovery and relapse
  • Codependency, teaching the group ways in which others can unintentionally support someone with a cocaine addiction
  • Relapse prevention, what puts your recovery in jeopardy, and what you can do to avoid those things or cope with them
  • Anger management and ways to channel emotion in a healthier manner
  • Addiction education on the nature of the disease model and how it impacts the mind

Case management services are also provided to help clients navigate their way through social services, employment or legal issues, help find supportive housing, and other needs that the clients may have.

Medical and psychiatric care are still provided for people in outpatient care as well. Many with an addiction struggle with a mental illness as well, and likely began using as a means to cope with the illness.

While there are no spiritual or support group requirements for attending an outpatient program for cocaine dependency, it is strongly encouraged, as support has been shown to increase the chances of people staying clean and sober.

What are the success rates for outpatient treatment?

One of the most often asked questions is, “is there is hope,?”  While there is some difficulty in studies on people with a cocaine addiction, it is clear that treatment helps, and recovery happens for many who enter into it.

Current estimates are that  40-60% of the people who enter into a treatment facility will stay in recovery and remain clean and sober throughout their lives. Against something as powerful as an addiction to cocaine can be, this is a good statistic.

However, there may be more to it than that. Rehab facilities have been known to have many positive impacts on a person’s life, even if complete abstinence is not achieved.

For example, the  Office of National Drug Control Policy, notes many other successful outcomes to cocaine dependency rehab. These include:

  • Reduced drug use
  • Improvements in employment, including working more days
  • Improvements in education, including attending more often and getting better grades.
  • Relationship improvements, including ones with friends, family, romantic partners, and coworkers.
  • Improved health, marked by fewer visits to the doctor and the ER, as well as fewer hospitalizations.
  • Better legal status, shown by fewer arrests and convictions, and fewer crimes committed.
  • Better mental health, marked by improved mood and personality traits, higher levels of cognition, and reduced psychotic states and need for treatment.
  • Improved public safety with fewer arrests and accidents

Who needs partial hospitalization treatment?

Cocaine dependency is starting to rise again, and sadly this means more people are addicted to this dangerous drug. In fact,  cocaine use is responsible for over half a million people ending up in an emergency room every year due to cocaine abuse and overdose.

Cocaine is a powerfully addictive psychoactive substance called a stimulant. Stimulants are a type of drug that makes the nervous speed up and be more sensitive to things.

The risk for overdose is high as people feel the high and invulnerable effects of the drug. This is a serious problem that needs treatment.

Partial hospitalization (PHP), also called day or night treatment, can be just that. But who needs partial hospitalization rehab for cocaine addiction?

People who benefit most from a PHP program for addiction treatment typically fall into one of these categories:

  • Individuals who are at risk of experiencing cocaine withdrawal
  • Individuals who have experienced a relapse
  • Individuals who have tried a less intensive level of cocaine treatment but were unable to stay clean
  • Individuals who are stepping down from inpatient residential treatment

Most patients who come to us for partial hospitalization cocaine rehab may also struggle with a co-occurring mental health condition, such as depression or post-traumatic stress disorder, that needs to be addressed during addiction treatment.

Another factor to consider in choosing between levels of care for rehab options is whether you have a healthy and supportive home environment. While it is not necessary, it is encouraged that the person have a safe environment where they can go during off hours of treatment.

A partial hospitalization program where you will have a built-in system of support will probably be the most effective option and good fit for people who may have a home and family structure, but may need more support to stabilize it and recovery.

How long will you stay in a day/night rehab unit?

A partial hospitalization program is very intense and lasts for a relatively short period of time. The average length of stay is 30 days. So, on average you work intensely on your recovery for a month.

Although 30 days is an average, some may graduate earlier, and some may need extra time, depending on their needs. This will be worked out between you and your rehab staff.

This type of hospitalization for cocaine addiction is for people with serious addictions, mental health problems, or have a history of relapses.

What happens at a PHP rehab program for cocaine addiction?

At day/night treatment, you will be there every day for about 8 hours a day. You will be staying there with others in the same treatment program.

During PHP treatment, you will be receiving daily individual or group counseling to address the addiction, what led you to start using, psychiatric care for any medication you may need, and family therapy to help heal the wounds caused by cocaine addiction.

Also in day/night rehab for cocaine addiction you will learn about:

  • Recovery philosophy and the nature of addiction
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy and how your thoughts and interpretations of events cause your emotions and actions
  • Basics in recovery, the fundamentals of the concept of recovery, triggers, and relapse
  • Relapse prevention, what puts your recovery in jeopardy, and what you can do to avoid those things or cope with them
  • Anger management and ways to channel emotion in a healthier manner
  • Addiction education on the nature of the disease model and how it impacts the mind
  • Psychoeducation on the mind, mood, and relationships
  • Codependency, learning about the ways others can unintentionally support your cocaine addiction
  • Community meeting, talking about the recovery community you are a part of in the day/night treatment program will happen weekly and any issues within the group will be addressed in a healthy and respectful way

Some day/night treatment centers will require attendance of alcoholics anonymous, narcotics anonymous, or other 12-step or support group meetings. They may even host meetings at their treatment facility.

Spirituality or a higher power are often used terms in inpatient rehab for cocaine and other drugs. It does not mean that religious or spiritual worship is required. There are support groups and services that focus solely on the individual and do not include a religious aspect.

What are the success rates for PHP treatment?

Entering into rehab, people need to know there is hope, that they will get better. Their families need to know this as well.

Hope and recovery happen every day in treatment centers. It is estimated  40-60% of the people who go through rehab for cocaine addiction will stay clean. This may not seem like a large number, but against an addiction like with cocaine, it is a success.

But other success happen as well. According to the Office of National Drug Control Policy, many benefits come to people who enter into rehab for cocaine addiction. These include:

  • Reduced drug use, including complete abstinence
  • Improvements in employment, including working more days
  • Improvements in education, including attending more often and getting better grades.
  • Relationship improvements, including ones with friends, family, romantic partners, and coworkers.
  • Improved health, marked by fewer visits to the doctor and the ER, as well as fewer hospitalizations.
  • Better legal status, shown by fewer arrests and convictions, and fewer crimes committed.
  • Better mental health, marked by improved mood and personality traits, higher levels of cognition, and reduced psychotic states and need for treatment.
  • Improved public safety with fewer arrests and accidents
