Learn more about cocaine addiction treatment at Conway Behavioral Health Hospital
Cocaine is an illegal stimulant that creates a brief but intense high. It comes in a white powder formula that is snorted, and enters the bloodstream almost immediately.
One of the most problematic consequences of cocaine use is tolerance. Cocaine’s euphoric high is short-lived, and frequent use of it means that over time you’ll need more of it in larger doses to achieve the same effects. This is often how the cycle of cocaine dependence begins.
If you find yourself feeling unable to control the amount or frequency of your cocaine use, you will need a professional treatment program that understands the unique challenges associated with cocaine addiction. At Conway Behavioral Health Hospital, our comprehensive programming can help you reclaim control of your life and free yourself from cocaine abuse.
Helping a loved one or family member get treatment for cocaine addiction
There are few things more difficult than watching a loved one succumb to addiction while feeling unable to help. If a family member or friend is struggling with substance abuse, you may be unsure how to support them and encourage them to seek help. But rest assured that when someone you care about is addicted to cocaine, there are things you can do. Please consider the following:
- Research the signs and symptoms of cocaine abuse. Read up on cocaine dependence, and learn all you can about this type of addiction. By becoming more informed, you’ll grow in your capacity for empathy and understanding.
- Seek out treatment centers in your loved one’s area that offer cocaine-specific treatment programming. Contact their staff to learn more about their admissions process.
- When you prepare to share your findings with your loved one, expect some initial resistance.
- Maintain a calm and judgment-free tone, and remember that entering treatment is a major life choice that shouldn’t be taken lightly.
Throughout this time, be mindful of your own well-being. You can’t support your loved one if you aren’t taking good care of yourself, so be sure to engage in activities that rejuvenate you.

But fortunately, there is treatment available for substance use disorders like cocaine addiction. With the support of the expert staff at Conway, you can rid your mind and body of the effects of addiction.

For this reason, we provide individualized treatment plans for each patient in our care, which may include the following:
Detoxification: If you have cocaine, alcohol, or other substances in your system, you may receive detox services prior to starting the therapeutic aspects of treatment. Our staff will assess your need for detoxification at the time of your admission.
Medical care: Should any medical concerns arise during your time at Conway, we have physicians, licensed practical nurses (LPNs), and registered nurses (RNs) on staff to provide medical services.
Medication management: If you are suffering from symptoms of a mental health disorder in addition to an addiction to cocaine, our staff will assess you to determine whether medication may be beneficial. Patients who are prescribed medication will receive medication management services as needed.
Individual therapy: Individual therapy sessions allow you to process the challenges and successes that you experience while recovering from cocaine addiction. These one-on-one meetings with a therapist occur at least once during your time in inpatient treatment, but you have the option to request additional meetings when needed.
Group therapy: There are a minimum of four group therapy sessions held each day. Skills rehearsal groups, psychoeducation groups, process groups, and recreational groups give you a chance to explore a holistic approach to recovery from cocaine addiction. There are many topics covered in these groups, including:
- Adapting leisure skills
- Distress tolerance skills
- Emotional regulation skills
- Substance abuse
- Medication management
Family therapy: Family support can be extremely beneficial for those in recovery from cocaine addiction. At Conway, licensed therapists and counselors lead family therapy sessions once a week. During this time, you and your loved ones can process how your addiction has impacted the family unit and begin to repair relationships.
Continuing care after inpatient treatment for cocaine addiction
Inpatient treatment for cocaine addiction is meant to be a short-term experience, typically lasting around seven days. This level of care allows for stabilization and alleviation of crises so that patients can move to less intensive programming. Because your time in inpatient care is so minimal, it is important that you have a plan in place for when you’re ready to discharge.
On your first day of programming at Conway Behavioral Health Hospital, your treatment team will begin creating a discharge plan that will serve as a guide for when your time in inpatient care comes to an end. Your treatment team will find resources and continuing care options that will be of greatest benefit to you. Depending on the severity of your symptoms and where you are in your recovery, you may receive a recommendation to participate in one of Conway’s step-down levels of care, partial hospitalization programming (PHP) or intensive outpatient programming (IOP). Your treatment team will also provide you with other resources, which may include referrals to outside treatment providers and information on support groups in your area.
