Treatment for people with substance abuse or an addiction issue is based on how severe the withdrawal symptoms are. Sometimes you have to address what the recovering addict’s deepest physical, mental and emotional issues are. A 12 step program will always be needed for treatment it will outline a course of action for recovery from addiction, compulsion, or other behavioral problems. But treatment of cocaine addiction is complex, and must address a variety of problems. Cocaine Treatment strategies need to tend to the psychobiological, social, and pharmacological aspects of the patient’s drug abuse.
Although there are no known medications to treat cocaine addiction specifically studies have shown that anti-depressant drugs have shown to be of some help to the mood changes in the early stages of cocaine abstinence. Benzodiazepines are sometimes used to ease or treat some patients to cope with the psychological depression, sleeplessness, and/or mood swings of cocaine withdrawal. Only under the supervision of a physician should the patient do this, i.e. in a treatment center. If the user does this on his own it runs the risk of substituting one drug for another.
Counseling is one method of cocaine treatment. The user may feel guilty or embarrassed, counseling helps the user understand their addiction and overcome it. Behavioral intervention is another cocaine treatment. This method focuses on changing the user’s lifestyle habits. It will require a discontinuing contact with the drug friends, focusing on breaking the habit, and understanding the individual’s triggers that can cause urge for drug use or even relapse. Cognitive behavioral therapy may also be an important part of cocaine treatment. This is an approach that addresses cognitive processes and contents through a number of goal-oriented, explicit systematic procedures. It teaches the user how to recognize the situations where cocaine use may happen, how to avoid these particular situations, and then cope with their feelings and emotions is different way rather than turning to drug or substance abuse.
Most of the people looking for treatment for drug addiction are cocaine users. It is important to understand that every individual is different, and so there are many different cocaine treatments out there. A doctor should work with a psychologist to determine what treatment would be best for the drug addict and which one the individual would most likely stick to.
Of course the user must be a willing participant and put forth the effort to change and stay clean. If they are they will be able to beat there cocaine addiction though cocaine treatment.
