Cocaine Addiction Rehab For Those Who Are Willing
To Recover
  • 1st Is Assessment
  • In this stage, you will be medically evaluated to
    know the level and severity of drug addiction.
    This examination helps the rehabilitation center
    to know you better so that the plan and care is
    designed according to the needs. A complete
    family history is taken to know the background of
    the addiction which helps in finding the root
    cause. Furthermore, mental and physical diagnosis
    is conducted to know the details.
  • 2nd Is Medical Detox Process
  • After the tests are completed you will now be
    struggling in withdrawing from cocaine. This will
    be tougher than you would have thought and will
    take a long time depending upon your resistance
    capacity. Medical assistance in this detox
    process will be a great help, as you will be
    experiencing extreme side effects and symptoms
  • 3rd Is Help Through Medication
  • No such medication has been introduced to treat
    addiction. But the symptoms that you experience
    during withdrawal can be treated with medication

  • Behavioural and psychotherapy have proven to be
    the best treatments to get rid of addictions.

  • 5th Is Care After The Treatment
  • After the cocaine addiction rehab, you still have
    a chance to revert back to the addiction. To keep
    you away from going back to the addiction,
    counselling from the support group would really
    help. This battle will be really exhausting but
    you have to be determinant.

Best Ways of Cocaine Addiction Treatment
  • Mostly, the doctors methods are based on a
    scientific study of the behavior of receptors
    that react to the presence of cocaine in the
    brain. These doctors use drugs that are initially
    given intravenously for 2 to 3 hours. The drugs
    that are used cause a modification of the cocaine
    receptors and also modify the work of serotonin,
    histamine and endorphin receptors. After the
    intravenous treatment, the patient may feel a
    state of depression and apathy - something that
    is not peculiar to cocaine addicts in the period
    of giving up the drug.
  • After the intravenous phase of treatment of
    cocaine dependence, the patient receives a set of
    drugs that improve the mood of patients, improve
    work capacity, equalizes the restlessness and
    sleep regime, etc.
  • Drugs that are taken by cocaine-dependent by the
    method of doctors, gradually return the normal
    work of receptors that are responsible for the
    positive state of health, working capacity,
    treatment of depression, apathy, etc. Outpatient
    treatment of cocaine dependence lasts 3 months.
    The patient during this period leads a normal
    active lifestyle and comes to the clinic for
    psychological, psychiatric support and obtaining

What Are Heroin Addiction Treatments?
  • Although the treatment of heroin addiction
    without refusing to take medicine is impossible,
    the doctors can still alleviate the withdrawal
    syndrome with the help of properly carried out
    detoxification under a comprehensive program.
    Since the plague of heroin has existed for years,
    the doctors know how difficult it is to cure
    heroin addiction and for this purpose, they
    usually recommend admitting the addict to a
    hospital where he or she can be examined in
    detail. It is almost impossible for doctors to
    rely on their patients to be able to stay away
    from heroin while they are home since there are
    withdrawal symptoms so bad that an individual may
    choose to do heroin again instead of taking the
    cost into consideration which has been spent on
    their treatment.
  • Once the process starts
  • The body finally releases dangerous toxins after
    prolonged withdrawal from heroin
  • With the help of medicine, the flow of drugs into
    the brain cells is blocked, because of the
    internal organs and systems resulting in heroin
  • An addict develops a positive attitude towards
    life without a drug and experiences the real
    world happiness.

Marijuana Addiction Treatment Guide
  • Stage 1 Detoxing
  • In the very first stage, you withdraw the use of
    marijuana. This process is a detox process where
    you stop the usage and let the toxins remove most
    of the body. This withdrawal is extremely
    difficult and if have been an addict for a very
    long, you may face great difficulty in this
    process. This process of withdrawal could be
    frustrating as it has its own symptoms on the
    addict such as anger, anxiety, headaches,
    insomnia, and loss of appetite, dizziness, and
    fatigue. If you have decided to withdraw the use
    of marijuana then get yourself ready with full
    motivation and dedications as it is not easy.
  • Stage 2 Behavioural or Psychotherapy Therapy
  • You may be a victim of psychiatric disorder which
    impels you to use the drug. The psychotherapy
    helps in investigating the psycho-emotional
    motives that compel the use of marijuana and
    originates solutions to solve the problem without
    using drugs.
  • Stage 3 Support from Close Group
  • Getting away from the addiction would not only be
    helpful in making your body go through a detox
    but you will also need the determination to pull
    this over. For this, you will be needing
    counselling and support. Support group meetings
    extend great help in overcoming the marijuana
    addiction. Counselling from the family members
    and the friends you look up to does a lot of
    healing and prevents you from going back to the
    marijuana addiction.

Meth Addiction Treatment An Overview
  • Pharmacology
  • Due to the lack of availability of other
    pharmacological options, most meth users
    treatment begins with detoxification. It is used
    to slowly remove the meth substance from the
    users body. The entire procedure is performed
    under the supervision of professional medical
    personnel to ensure that patients remain safe
    during the treatment procedure.
  • Therapies
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, CBT in short, is
    focused on learning new ways to cope with stress
    and depression, which does not involve abusing
    the drugs like crystal meth or other harmful
  • Contingency management intervention
  • Contingency management intervention is based on a
    system that leverages reward or incentive as a
    motivational tool. This program provides
    incentives to the users recovering from meth
    addiction in exchange for the agreement of
    getting treatment and maintaining
    self-discipline. In some cases, disciplinary
    actions like withholding some of the privileges
    may be introduced in the case of non-compliance
    to keep them on track.
  • The Matrix Model
  • Matrix Model is a 16-week program that involves
    behavioral treatment services such as individual
    or group counselling and family education, drug
    testing and enforces the habits and activities,
    which does not involve the consumption of harmful
    drugs and detrimental substances.
