Cocaine can overwhelm you or a loved one while causing great harm to both physical and mental health. If you or a loved one is struggling to break free from the hold of cocaine, know that you are not alone.
Cocaine rehab can help you take back control of your life and give you the tools to maintain sobriety.
Why is cocaine rehab important?
While cocaine detox may help it to heal and allow you to overcome withdrawal symptoms, it is only the first vital part of overcoming cocaine addiction.
Cocaine rehab is a vital part of building a life free from cocaine. During cocaine rehab, you will receive the support and guidance you need not only to overcome cravings but to begin understanding what caused it in the first place. You will be in a space dedicated to your recovery, free from the distractions and triggers of daily life.
Cocaine rehab allows you to address the underlying causes of their drug use, which greatly strengthens your chances of maintaining sobriety.
Recovery takes time, dedication and commitment. It also requires a helpful and caring support system.
We know that active recovery can be isolating, to the point that you may feel alone and misunderstood. Cocaine rehab provides sober peer support from others who are going through a similar experience. You are not left to deal with the challenges on your own. As our client RTX shares,
“My perception of rehab was to get clean and stay clean, but it has been so much more. I feel like I rediscovered myself, so leaving sanctuary I feel like I will not only be able to stay clean and sober but also live life as the best version of myself. “
Treatment options for cocaine rehab
Cocaine rehab at Linwood House utilises several proven therapies to help you overcome unhealthy relationships with cocaine. One of the most effective approaches is cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). When used as part of cocaine rehab, CBT can help you identify and change the negative thought patterns that lead to cocaine abuse.
However, CBT is not the only tool we use. You can also benefit from 12-step programmes, which help promote abstinence and self-improvement. Your therapist will guide you through a series of steps designed to help you recognise your condition and begin to repair some of the damage it has done.
Group therapy is another core aspect of cocaine rehab. Here you will be able to connect with other people with similar experiences and provide mutual support. Developing and strengthening your support network is vital to maintaining long-term sobriety, so we also offer family therapy as part of cocaine rehab. Cocaine addiction is a family disease that impacts more than just the individual. Family therapy can help heal dysfunctional dynamics in the family and provide education on how to build upon the successes of cocaine rehab.
What to expect in cocaine rehab
After detox, cocaine rehab involves two stages, as well as additional holistic and creative therapies and workshops intertwined into these.
Through various therapies, a person also learns how to change their thinking patterns and respond to their triggers with healthy habits instead of drug use. These become tools that outlast treatment with us – they can help you to live a cocaine-free life.
One-on-one therapy can involve cognitive behavioural therapy, while 12-step work and group therapy sessions are also part of the programme. Depending on your needs, you may be provided with music and art therapy, guided meditation or yoga, all with the aim of additional healing.
Uncovering the Roots of Your Cocaine Use
Each person comes with their own circumstances and reasons for drug use. Cocaine rehab aims to discover and identify these and any triggers that may cause a person to use cocaine again.
Through the use of various evidence-based therapies, cocaine rehab can help you get to the root of your condition. With this knowledge, you and your therapist can start to develop meaningful responses to the stresses, traumas, and triggers that lead you to cocaine abuse.
During your stay at our private inpatient facility, you will be in a sober, safe environment. You will also be surrounded by helpful and supportive staff. However, we know that getting the best support is even more vital once you leave cocaine rehab.
Cocaine recovery is a long-term effort. That’s why we provide you with weekly group therapy for up to a year so that you can maintain sobriety beyond your initial cocaine rehab.
While residing at Linwood, you can attend Cocaine Anonymous (CA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings. You can also continue to benefit from CA and NA after completing your treatment at Linwood House.
Linwood House also provides you with our Alumni programme, which involves message groups, phone calls and regular social events to provide support and a sober community beyond cocaine rehab.
Do I really need cocaine rehab?
We understand that recognising the need for treatment help can require a lot of strength and bravery. You may have convinced yourself or your loved ones that you are fine. If you or a loved one is questioning whether rehab is for you, the following questions may help:
- Have you attempted to quit cocaine use but found that you couldn’t?
- Do you socialise only or mostly with others who use cocaine or other drugs?
- Have you found yourself hiding your cocaine use from family members or lying to close ones about it?
- Do you spend much of your time obtaining, using or recovering from the effects of cocaine?
- Are you neglecting your personal, home or work responsibilities because of your cocaine use?
- Do you feel like you need to use cocaine to feel normal, or have a need to feel the rush of using cocaine?
Reach out to our support team to discuss any of your questions and concerns and learn about how we can help you move past cocaine use.
How can I prevent relapse after cocaine rehab?
Cocaine rehab will place a person in the best position to prevent relapse from occurring. Identifying your triggers and working through the underlying causes allows you to move forward equipped with the tools needed to make lasting, positive changes.
It is vital to know that if relapse does occur, it is not a sign of failure. Instead, it indicates getting back on track and continuing your recovery.
Prevention methods that may help include:
- Leaning on support systems, such as Linwood House’s Alumni network, friends and family, whenever you feel the need
- Staying away from social situations and people who use cocaine
- Staying away from anything that could trigger relapse
- Taking up new hobbies, volunteering, joining support groups and occupying your time with healthy activities
Tips for loved ones
Cocaine rehab offers a person the tools to work on their recovery, and your support can play a big role in that too.
Our Family Support Programme involves weekly group meetings designed for family members and ones closely connected to a person receiving treatment. These meetings can help you look after your physical and mental health while providing essential guidance, coping skills and insights. It connects you to a support network of people in a similar position.
Ways in which you can help a loved one in cocaine rehab include:
- Attending family support programmes
- Visiting your loved one in cocaine rehab and offering your support
- Encouraging your loved one to participate in therapies and treatment programmes
- Offering them a safe, sober and supportive home environment when they leave cocaine rehab
- Staying in touch with their therapist or counsellor
- Encouraging them to attend aftercare appointments, offering to drive them to therapy and being there for them at every stage of recovery.
