Addiction in any form can wreak havoc on relationships. This is caused by how a substance use disorder disrupts your ability to make rational, healthy decisions and drives you toward one compulsive behavior: constantly feeding the addiction.

For most people struggling with addiction, this thought may seem foreign because, to them, their addiction is ‘under control.’ However, to the spouse, parents, siblings and friends watching their disease eat away at them, it is painfully obvious that their addiction is actively destroying their life.

As you battle cocaine addiction, can you think of a time when your addictive impulses negatively impacted your interactions with your loved ones? What about when it caused you to act out of character or in a manner that you regretted?

Cocaine Addiction and Relationships

While cocaine use may elevate your mood and help you feel good, the reality of habitual cocaine use is much more sinister. Feeding your addiction can force you to neglect those relationships closest to you, driving you into a state of constant deception and secrecy in order to avoid feeling judged by others.

When you begin to center your life around your addiction, you may not be fully aware of how much you are actually spiraling out of control. At a certain point, when and if you become aware of how bad your cocaine use has become, you will inevitably experience feelings of shame and guilt – which can cause you to become more secretive about your activities and overall state of being.

Little white lies that initially seem harmless turn into much bigger methods of deception, leading you toward a double life to cover up the damage your addiction has already inflicted.

How Cocaine Addiction Affects Relationships

The widespread damage that your cocaine addiction can inflict is no secret. However, understanding how it directly applies to you and your daily social interactions is a key step toward facing your addiction and beginning your recovery journey.

Some of the more impactful effects of your cocaine use include:

  • Developing severe trust issues with friends and loved ones
    Living with an active cocaine addiction is often associated with consistent periods of erratic and unpredictable behavior. Your addiction can cause you to cycle through moments of using and withdrawing, sometimes on a daily basis.

In fact, it is not uncommon for cocaine addicts in relationships to go through periods of highs and lows multiple times throughout a single day.

Trust becomes an overarching factor during these times, making it difficult to remain rational and often resulting in extreme feelings of mistrust and suspicion. This can lead to you denying your cocaine use and repeatedly breaking promises about quitting or getting clinical help.

  • The potential to become increasingly aggressive toward others
    One of the more negative effects that addiction can have on your relationships is the potential for physical violence within both the home and community. Your cocaine addiction can increase feelings of paranoia and aggression, which can result in small fights that quickly ignite and turn into uncontrollable moments of cocaine-induced rage.

Those living under the same roof with you are at severe risk of physical and mental abuse and trauma as a result of the volatile behaviors cocaine addiction can cause.

  • Experiencing excessive anxiety in most social settings
    While feelings of euphoria are often associated with cocaine use, anxiety is just as common and intense of a side effect. It often sets in while you are in social settings and commonly becomes worse when you start to come down from a cocaine binge.

While you are being social, you feel a level of anxiousness that takes you out of the moment and disguises the negative feelings with social connectivity. This can routinely make you talk over people and mistake a negative social interaction as something positive.

In addition, as you come down and begin experiencing withdrawal after an extensive cocaine binge, your interactions continue to become harder as you experience excessive anxiety and intense irritability.

These negative effects of cocaine addiction directly impact your ability to socially interact in a healthy manner and routinely drive family and friends out of your life. While this may not be your intention, the fact of the matter is that excessive cocaine use changes your normal behaviors, as well as your responses to those around you.

Staff: 4.5/5Owner, Director, therapists, nurses, counselors, and support staff are all really great. I had no issues with anyone in particular. They are all there to help you however they can. I found that everyone advocated for my well being, were available when I needed them, and did their best to support me, check in on me, and make sure I was happy and comfortable.(why not 5/5? They have had a bunch of turnover and need to update their website with their newer staff members and qualifications. Additionally the Doctors they partner with were not as thorough as I would have wanted, and were kind of pushy with medications)Program: 4/5Small groups for the win! You get a lot of attention if you need it. This is a Holistic approach rehab. They do not focus on any 12 step programs. You have daily classes with different counselors, focusing on the science behind addiction, anger management, talk therapy, art therapy, equine therapy, nutrition, and much more. You have one-on-one sessions twice a week with a Licensed Therapist, and you have access to a gym daily, with a yoga instructor and trainer coming a few times a week. You also have a docent that comes once a week to do sound therapy, and you can learn techniques such as tapping. They have 2 doctors on staff you will have Zoom appointments with, and someone is always present to distribute morning, afternoon, and bedtime medication. You can also always grab whomever is on-call to talk through any issues or questions you have.(why not 5/5? Overall I found that there was too much down-time. I got bored and restless with that much free time and I craved more structure. Additionally I thought that the family Zoom sessions could have served as a stronger resource for loved ones)Location: 4/5Murrieta is a quiet, tranquil area, with mountain views, a lot of farmland, and very little public noise to distract you. When you do leave the house, you get to visit a small farm that is very close by to interact with horses and goats, etc. You also have an outing on Saturdays for a few hours that allows you as a group to get out of the house. The immediate area has all the basic stores and activities you would want, like target/walmart/grocery/7-11/etc as well as mini golf, bowling... You do need to decide as a group where you want to go because you have 1 chaperone and need to stay together at all times.(why not 5/5? There are 2 different houses located about 10 minutes away from each other. The Bass house advertised on the website is much nicer and larger than the Doreen house. During my time the clients staying at the Doreen house were shuttled over to the Bass house for our daily classes and sessions, not being able to utilize their own kitchen, rooms, and bathrooms during the day. I was also told by clients that the Doreen house was not as nice as the Bass House)Amenities: 4/5Pool - (I was there in the winter, so it was not heated and basically unusable, however, I did do some cold plunges just for the shock)Hot tub - available once a week on Friday eveningsYard - Large Grass Backyard and cement patio with tables and chairsGym - Available daily. TV for movies or music. Free weights, yoga mats, and a few outdated cardio machines that mostly worked.Kitchen - Large kitchen, multiple Fridges/Freezers, Huge pantry for preparing anything you want, ovens, microwave, toasters, dishwasher, outdoor gas grill, etc...Pool table, ping pong table, arts and crafts table, outdoor TV, Indoor TV, Computer, land-line house phone.Comfortable rooms and bathrooms with laundry access, and provided bedding and towels.(why not 5/5? I was disappointed that it wasn't clear that the pool and hot tub didn't have daily access as advertised, and that the gym was more outdated than described/pictured. They also could make some very inexpensive recreation investments like a basketball for their outdoor hoop, soccer ball, frisbees, croquet set, bocce, etc for their giant lawn to be used during the extensive downtime)

Ranch Creek Recovery is the best way to start your new healthy way of life. This program actually saved my life and my sanity. Their Holistic approach was amazing and I learned so much from my counselors and Dr. Dena. With only a limited number of participants in the house at one time, you are guaranteed the one on one time, as well as the group counseling they offer in a safe and comfortable setting. They make you aware that they truly care and are there to support you , listen to you, and most important to teach you. Teach you information about triggers, cognitive behavior and how to stay sober. They include therapy through others means such as Yoga, Meditation, working with Horses and even Physical Training. Ranch Creek makes sure when you leave you are good, Mind, Body and Soul. They have an excellent Intensive Outpatient Program (10) weeks that helps navigate your way back into life. A year ago (received my one year chip June 8, 2022) I was lost and a raging out of control alcoholic. I can proudly say today that I am not. I will always be an alcoholic with an addictive personality. But now I have tools, personal contacts and the faith in myself that I have never had before in my 9 years searching for sobriety. I often reflect back on my time at the Bass house. I am probably one of the few that actually stayed 60 days because I had so much to learn. My insurance did not cover all of the last days, but it was worth it to me, so I stayed. I am so grateful to so many of the staff, Jimmie, Christine, Jonathon, Dr. Dena and countless extended staff to name a few, because there were more. I would not be here to tell you it works, because without the treatment and the help I received, I alive today to tell my journey. If you are ready to face the truth, please give them a call. I promise if you are committed, you will never be the same as when you walked in. Thank you Ranch Creek Recovery.

I had long term sobriety and was under a lot of stress from my professional position. I began to use cannabis recreationally and soon became dependent. I sought recovery, because I could not stop using cannabis on my own. It was causing issues with my family and in my professional life. I signed up with Rancho Creek Recovery, through my insurance. I attended the pm IOP zoom sessions with Lorri. Her group sessions and the materials she provided, helped me to get off of cannabis. Lorri was a big help in giving me strategies to stay sober and to manage the cravings and ways to deal with my work stress. I would strongly recommend Rancho Creek Recovery's outpatient program and the pm IOP zoom sessions with Lorri. She was a great professional to work with.

I've had a few stints with rehab and none even skinned the surface of what I learned here. Located on a beautiful property in the foothills of Murrieta, with in house groups led by instructors that break it down so in depth. My perspective had a total shift and I can honestly say I owe my life and the promise of a new future to this facility and it's faculty. If you're willing to do the work this is the place to get into your core issues and help you recover from the lifestyle and vices that one is addicted to. I recommend this place to anyone who wants something different from life. DBT, CBT, recovery education, family therapy are just a few of the groups and The program director and Clinical director hand picked a team that is progressive, informed, patient, caring and passionate about what they do. I encourage anyone who's seeking treatment to look into this program I first hand watched others and had my life transformed.

Coming to Ranch Creek Recovery, I had been through three different inpatient chemical treatment facilities in CA. I was feeling lost and somewhat hopeless. The serene setting gave me peace and I began healing. The counselors were very inspiring and helped me grow in ways I haven’t experienced in years. I began to see the bigger picture that a life in sobriety can give you. Although I am somewhat scared to leave the comfort and security that Ranch Creek Recovery and staff has brought me, I am also excited to share my growth with my family and to start my new life. Thank you RCR!
