Substance abuse may be defined as an intense and uncontrollable drug craving, along with obsessive drug seeking and use that continues even in the face of distressing consequences.
Drug abuse has so many dimensions and disrupts so many aspects of an individual’s life that treatment is a complex phenomenon.
To be termed as effective, addiction treatment must enable the individual to discontinue using drugs, continue with a drug-free lifestyle, and also achieve productive functioning in the family, at work, and in the society.
Cocaine de-addiction too warrants a comprehensive treatment program that not only ensures that the underlying addiction issues are addressed, but also promotes a patient’s mental and emotional health during the healing process.
A cocaine addiction program may vary on a case to case basis and may include one or more of the following: Detox: To rinse out the drug toxins from the body, alternative programs like yoga, meditation and massage therapy, individual counseling and family counseling.
No single treatment is appropriate for everyone. Therefore, good drug rehab centers make each patient undergo an initial assessment to gauge the needs of the addict and then assign a primary therapist that does all the hand holding throughout the addict’s treatment.
