You can get help for cocaine addiction.

Cocaine is an extremely addictive stimulant drug, but even those with a serious cocaine problem can fully recover. Various treatment options exist for addicts.

Treatment Options


The first step in cocaine addiction treatment is detoxification, which is often medically supervised. Once the body is ridded of all drugs and alcohol, a comprehensive rehabilitation program that addresses all aspects of addiction (psychological, biological, social, physiological, occupational, etc.) should be implemented.


While there are no specific pharmacotherapies available for the treatment of cocaine addiction, some studies have shown that, especially in serious cases, medications such as amantadine and bromocriptine effectively reduce cravings, normalize sleep and increase energy.

Behavioral therapy

Most successful drug rehab plans will incorporate some form of behavioral therapy. Cognitive behavioral therapy and addiction counseling, for example, focus on identifying the underlying causes of addiction and teaching the addict to identify, avoid and cope with relapse triggers. Behavioral therapy is an important step toward long-term cocaine abstinence.

Cocaine Support Groups

Many support groups, such as Cocaine Anonymous (CA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA), have proven to benefit treatment and ongoing recovery.

The importance of inpatient rehabilitation programs.

Though not all cocaine addicts need to enroll in a residential treatment program in order to successfully recover, inpatient rehabilitation programs can be an effective choice for individuals with cocaine problems. These programs are able to manage all aspects of a comprehensive treatment plan, including detoxification, cognitive-behavioral therapy, addiction counseling, family therapy, pharmacotherapy (when possible) and relapse prevention. In addition, residential treatment programs are able to provide patients with professional, 24-hour care in a safe, calming environment.

In general, residential treatment programs also have higher success rates than outpatient treatment programs, because they take the addict away from the environment and friends that fueled the drug problem. Caron’s residential programs offer a comprehensive range of treatment services that focus on the medical, psychological, clinical, physical and spiritual aspects of one's recovery.
