Starting Your Journey with a Medical Detox
For many cocaine users, medical detox is the necessary first step to get their cocaine use under control. A cocaine addiction impacts you with both physical symptoms and mental symptoms that make you more likely to use the substance again. Moving away from routine use can trigger discomfort, but South Shores Detox and Recovery can make you more comfortable.
Medical detox for drug abuse means that you will be in a safe setting. The option to return to cocaine use is no longer there, if you remain within the treatment center. This takes away some of the pressure of wondering whether you will be strong enough to turn away from your substance abuse.
Medication-Assisted Treatment Programs to Manage Withdrawal Symptoms
In addition, medical detoxes also have tools at their disposal to make you more comfortable. Medication-assisted treatment programs can administer prescriptions that will minimize withdrawal symptoms and make you slightly more comfortable during the early recovery journey.
You will be monitored by a team of medical professionals for the entirety of your detox process. This allows you to enter into addiction treatment with peace of mind. Doctors and nurses are available to help you at every stage of your cocaine addiction recovery.
Keep in mind that medical detox is not the only component of successful addiction treatment. It starts your recovery journey but is meant to segue into other programs.
Proven Inpatient Treatment Programs for Cocaine
After a supervised medical detox ends and the worst of your withdrawal symptoms are over, the gold standard of treatment is inpatient care. A cocaine detox might help you over the hardest part of managing withdrawal symptoms, but this short period does not give you the tools you need to manage your cocaine use ongoing.
Instead, an inpatient treatment program equips you with a higher level of support than you may receive through various outpatient treatment options.
At South Shores Detox and Recovery, our specialists offer several different treatment modalities to help you move forward. You will experience the best of individual therapy, group therapy, and more. It is an intensive program that treats your substance abuse disorder with minimal distractions.
The best part is that your cocaine use will be impossible while under the strict supervision of our staff. This gives you a safe space to process the underlying reasons for your cocaine abuse and gives you the opportunity to practice new coping skills.
Outpatient Cocaine Addiction Treatment Options
Overcoming cocaine addiction is a long-term commitment. While an inpatient program is the ideal next step following a supervised detox, outpatient is a longer-term commitment to your cocaine treatment. After you are discharged from inpatient, you should make your way into a qualified outpatient program.
An outpatient program gives you a more flexible means to seek treatment for your cocaine addiction. What can you expect from an outpatient treatment program?
Behavioral Therapy for Mental Health Improvement
You will still participate in behavioral therapy with a licensed counselor who is experienced with cocaine withdrawal syndrome. They can also help you to cope with any mental illness or other mental health concerns that you may face.
The goal of behavioral therapy is to provide you with new coping skills that make it less likely that you will return to drug use (whether that is cocaine or other drugs). When faced with the temptation to use cocaine again, you will have plenty of skills in your toolbox to turn away from the drug abuse.
One of the best treatments for cocaine addiction is cognitive behavioral therapy. According to one research study, those who were engaged in CBT were more likely to refrain from drug use at the one-year testing point.
Group Therapy for Cocaine Withdrawal
In addition to one-on-one therapy with a licensed counselor, you will also still participate in several group therapy sessions each week. This allows you to get to know other people who are facing the same effects of cocaine abuse that you are. Support groups provide social time with people who truly understand the effects of your substance addiction.
According to a study found in the National Library of Medicine, those who participated in group therapy had higher abstinence rates than those who participated only in other types of treatment (or those who dropped out of treatment altogether).
12-Step Models for Group Therapy
You may already be familiar with the 12-step model of treatment employed by many group programs. This level of social support often supports people to remain in treatment for longer periods and has better outcomes with reduced likelihood of returning to substance use.
It is all about support for sober living and serving the community, which leads to better outcomes. The skills you learn in a 12-step meeting are easy to apply to other situations in your life, helping you to make connections between skills learned and daily application.
Our Outpatient Treatment Programs and Levels of Care
When coping with cocaine withdrawal symptoms, you may wonder if there will ever be an end in sight to your treatment. At our treatment center, we have various levels of care so that you always have the proper level of support to return to your daily life without your drug habit.
As you graduate from a more intensive program, you can slowly scale back your care so that you can focus on the day-to-day things that command your attention.
Partial Hospitalization Following Inpatient
Oftentimes, cocaine addicts find it most helpful to transition from detox and inpatient directly into a partial hospitalization program. This allows them to receive treatment all day long, just the same as if they were attending a full-time job. However, they get to return home at night to sleep in their own bed and interact with family members and friends.
This stage of addiction recovery gives you the first taste of freedom from cocaine use disorders. You may be tempted to use crack cocaine again, but you have supports in place to help you make it through any temptation that you might face.
Intensive Outpatient as a Step Down
When you feel ready to move back into some of your other responsibilities, it might be time to consider intensive outpatient. This allows you to seek help for cocaine addiction, mental disorders, and more with a greater degree of flexibility. You may even be able to return to work on a part-time basis while still receiving treatment for your addiction or mental health issues.
This stage of addiction treatment gives you a greater taste of what it will be like to adhere to an outpatient treatment program ongoing.
Traditional Outpatient Allows for a Return to Regular Life
Coping with your cocaine addiction is a lifelong process. Ongoing cognitive behavioral therapy is an essential component of your commitment to remain sober and clean. This gives you an outlet for your feelings and desires to use as well as to cope with psychological symptoms that plague you.
There will always be times when you have intense cravings, but you know how to put them off and implement coping skills to maintain continuous sobriety.
If this sounds like you, then you may be ready for a traditional outpatient. This allows you to come and go as you please, attending appointments with a therapist or psychiatrist as well as group sessions. Your healthcare providers will be there to support you in a full return to your daily life post-addiction treatment.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment with Recovery Specialists
There are many cases where someone with cocaine addiction has an underlying mental health concern that contributes to their drug abuse. You need a facility that can treat you holistically for everything that may be contributing to your drug abuse.
At South Shores Detox and Recovery, we implement several treatment modalities to assist you with mental illness.
CBT to Influence Thoughts, Feelings, and Actions
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is one tool that we can use to modify the cycles of addictive behaviors that leave you feeling trapped in substance abuse. We examine your thoughts and how they lead to feelings that influence your actions. This triad is at the core of CBT treatment programs and has a lasting effect on your treatment.
As you enter into a cocaine comedown, it is crucial to evaluate the thought patterns that lead you to drug use. This is the best time to consider behavioral patterns and how you can interrupt the cycle to remain sober moving forward.
DBT for Mindfulness Practice
In addition to CBT, you might also be exposed to dialectical behavioral therapy or DBT. One of the core components of DBT is mindfulness. Mindfulness is the ability to sit with your feelings and tolerate them, even when they start to feel slightly uncomfortable.
If you can cope with your feelings for a short period of time, you might be able to challenge them and resist the temptation to turn to cocaine abuse.
DBT has been proven to be highly effective at treating substance abuse disorders, especially in cases where mental illness is also present. Many people who have attempted recovery in the past with varied levels of success may find that DBT is the ticket to reducing their desire to use substances.
Individual and Group Therapy Options
A dual diagnosis can also be treated using both individual and group therapy models. Individual therapy is great for those who need to dive deep into issues like trauma that influence their thoughts, feelings, and substance abuse patterns. Many people may not feel completely comfortable sharing some of these thoughts in a group setting.
However, group therapy permits you to receive social support and build camaraderie with others who could share similar experiences. You may learn more than you think from engaging with group members openly and honestly.
All of these models apply not just to mental health concerns but also to your addiction recovery. They minimize your risk factors for relapse and make it more likely that you will use solid coping skills when you experience withdrawal symptoms.
