What’s Involved in Cocaine Addiction Rehabilitation?

Cocaine treatment considerations during all stages and varieties of cocaine addiction rehab will vary depending on the severity of the addiction, including the frequency of use, quantity, purity of cocaine and combinations of opiates and or alcohol or other drugs. Cocaine rehabilitation at our treatment center is essentially a bio-psycho-social approach employing the best methodologies of medical and physical treatment, psychology, holistic and experiential therapies, and preparation to re-enter the world clean and sober.

The History of Cocaine

A brief discussion of the history of the plant (Erythroxylum coca) reveals that cocaine is a proven medicinal modality as well as an illicit drug. Cocaine is obtained from processing the leaves of shrubs that are indigenous to Peru and Bolivia.

First described in the 16th century, as a plant that was chewed and induced feelings of exhilaration and pleasures. Later in 1859, cocaine was purified and thought to be a cure for alcohol and morphinism and used by the medical profession at the time. Unfortunately, many early patients ended up with one more habit, that being cocaine.

Fortunately, in the 20th century cocaine addiction treatment became available, including early intervention and substance abuse education. Prior to the advent of cocaine treatment, addicts were prone to overdose and the debilitating effects of a long-term compulsion without help from a cocaine rehab center.

Current Status

According to the U.S. Comprehensive Drug Abuse Act of 1970, cocaine is classified as a “schedule II” drug (“high abuse potential with small recognized medical use”). The pharmacology and toxicology of cocaine is similar to that of amphetamines. The primary effects of cocaine are feelings of mental agility, greater precision of thought and actions, immunity to fatigue and muscular power. The primary stimulant in cocaine triggers the effects of euphoria, confidence, increased heart rate and blood pressure, dilated pupils, increase in body temperature.

Does Cocaine Affect Your Liver and Other Organs?

The long-term abuse of cocaine has been shown to cause severe damage to many organs in the body – most notably the liver and heart. Excessive cocaine use can cause liver damage due to the manner in which the body is flooded with toxins when high amounts of cocaine are ingested. It also causes inflammation to the heart muscle and increases the risk of strokes, seizures, heart attacks, aortic ruptures, and more. Cocaine abuse can also damage the brain, lungs, and kidneys and lead to a number of long-term side effects.

If someone develops chemical dependency symptoms that affect physical and mental health, they may benefit from cocaine addiction treatment. Signs that someone is struggling with cocaine addiction may include:

  • Auditory hallucinations
  • Significant increase in the person’s tolerance
  • Mood changes, including restless, irritability and paranoia
  • Problems with home, school, work and relationships
  • Withdrawal symptoms when the person tries to stop abusing cocaine
  • Financial issues
  • Loss of interest in friends and activities they previously enjoyed
  • Risky behavior such as driving under the influence
  • Changes in sleep, appetite or hygiene, especially when someone is eating or sleeping less than normal
  • Lying and secrecy, particularly about substance abuse
  • Often has a runny nose or nosebleed, which causes frequent sniffing
  • Physical scars from injecting cocaine
  • Dilated pupils or bloodshot eyes
  • Irritability, fatigue and other physical withdrawal symptoms when the person tries to stop using cocaine

Dual Diagnosis: The Relationship Between Cocaine Abuse and Mental Health

Cocaine abuse and other types of substance use often occur along with mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration reports that 9.2 million U.S. adults who are battling addictions also struggle with mental health challenges. People enrolled in cocaine addiction treatment learn how to manage both co-occurring disorders if they find out they have a dual diagnosis.

The National Alliance on Mental Health recommends an integrated approach, meaning you receive treatment for drug or alcohol addiction and a co-occurring mental illness at the same time. Symptoms of a dual diagnosis vary significantly based on the substance of choice and the specific mental health condition or conditions. It’s uncertain whether mental health symptoms lead to substance use or if the substance use caused the mental health condition.

How Our Cocaine Addiction Treatment Center Addresses Substance Use Disorder

Our cocaine addiction treatment program is not a 12-step program. Instead, we provide meaningful support for mental and physical health to facilitate long-term recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. Ranch Creek Recovery Center offers both inpatient and outpatient treatment for cocaine addiction. Both treatment types include individual therapy sessions, family therapy sessions, experiential therapy, process groups and other forms of ongoing support for lifelong recovery.

Detox Services for Cocaine Addiction

Ranch Creek Recovery specializes in a subacute holistic detox therapeutic process for cocaine addiction treatment. Treatment plans at this stage include supervision by health care professionals as you have an increased risk of respiratory distress, cardiac arrest and other serious health problems while detoxing from cocaine and other substances. They also provide medication management to help ease the withdrawal symptoms and prevent complications. The detox services portion of cocaine addiction treatment typically lasts for about seven days.

Inpatient Cocaine Addiction Treatment Center

Inpatient Cocaine Addiction Treatment in California

When you or a family member enters residential treatment at our rehab center in California, a professional treatment specialist will help develop an addiction recovery plan. You’ll explore the underlying reasons you may have abused cocaine and learn strategies to maintain sobriety. Our holistic approach combines various types of treatment designed for recovery when a person abuses cocaine. We guide our clients as they set and work toward treatment goals and prepare to lead sober lives.

Experienced counselors and psychologists lead our individual therapy and group therapy sessions. You’ll also attend therapy sessions with your family members, which will help them learn more about cocaine addiction and support you as you continue to abstain from cocaine use.

Our recovery center uses both dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) as appropriate during drug abuse treatment. CBT involves replacing harmful patterns of thinking that contribute to substance use with productive, healthy thought patterns and coping skills. DBT is a type of talk therapy designed to help individuals handle overwhelming emotions. It can effectively treat not only cocaine abuse but also mental health disorders such as anxiety, depression, bulimia, binge-eating disorder, PTSD, self-harm and borderline personality disorder (BPD).

At our California cocaine addiction treatment center, you’ll also take part in therapies that teach skills for relapse prevention and healthy relationships. In addition to our family program, we offer acupuncture, equine (horse) therapy, sound healing meditation and yoga. All individuals in the addiction treatment program also attend regular sessions with a certified personal trainer and enjoy fresh, nutritious meals with a menu created by behavioral therapists.

People who attend inpatient treatment may transition to a sober housing environment. This type of residential setting with like-minded individuals may help with relapse prevention, but it’s important to research your options before committing to sober housing since most states don’t license these facilities.

Outpatient Cocaine Addiction Treatment in California

Outpatient Cocaine Addiction Treatment in California

Cocaine users can maintain work and home responsibilities while attending addiction treatment. We also have virtual cocaine rehab so you can seek help for addiction and mental health from the comfort and privacy of your home. Outpatient cocaine addiction treatment offered at Ranch Creek Recovery meets three days a week in your choice of morning or evening sessions.

Cocaine users in the outpatient rehab will still attend group therapy to build meaningful relationships with others in the recovery center. In addition to group therapy opportunities, individual and family sessions take place in this cocaine rehab program. Most people attend for about 10 weeks and participate in an aftercare program to help them maintain sobriety.

Group therapy sessions can provide ongoing support during recovery. Our professional counselors can help with referrals to appropriate local groups, such as chapters of Narcotics Anonymous; Smart Recovery, a non-faith-based addiction support group; and Double Trouble in Recovery, a group specifically for people who have mental illness along with substance use disorder.
