Recent studies have shown that millions of Americans have used cocaine. Due to the high number of users, there have also been thousands of overdoses and emergency room visits. Consequently, treatment for cocaine addiction has become a major topic of discussion. Having the necessary help readily available can greatly reduce the progression of addiction. Furthermore, seeking out treatment becomes easier when recovery resources and options are clear. Therefore, increasing education around these options is imperative.
Cocaine dependency can be treated using a combination of resources. Some of these include medication, therapy, support groups and more. While addiction often follows similar patterns, the people suffering from addiction are all unique, requiring treatment programs that are tailored to their specific needs. Finding the right combination of treatment modalities for you’re individual circumstances is crucial. You can make the most of your recovery experience by taking the time to experiment with the options available to you.
Psychosocial treatment is a form of cocaine dependency treatment that involves a well-rounded variety of components, including structured counseling, motivational enhancement, case management and coordination, psychotherapy, and relapse prevention. Seeking out programs that offer this approach could be a good place to start.
More specifically, counseling can serve as an excellent form of treatment for those with cocaine dependence. Counseling can be done individually as well as in a group. Typically, treatment programs will offer a combination of both types of counseling as resources to support people through the recovery process.
Individual drug counseling: In this type of setting, a mental health counselor will be there to work with you one-on-one, discussing aspects of addiction as well as personal ties to your past which could influence your recovery.
Group drug counseling: in a group setting, a variety of topics can be discussed including social support, shame, healing, sobriety, relapse prevention, and goal setting. Additionally, a group setting allows space for the peer accountability process which further supports recovery.
