Cocaine Addiction Recovery in South Africa

Individuals get addicted to cocaine after extended usage periods or regular use of the substance. Cocaine forms a powerful psychological bond and cessation becomes harder and harder as the person uses more of the drug. The addiction to cocaine can be beaten and recovery is possible.

Cocaine Addict Interventions

Interventions are structured meetings that help people with cocaine addictions to understand how the drug connects to the problems in their lives. Interventions provide an opportunity for the person to accept help for the addiction and to educate the family on how-to move forward in a positive and constructive way.This process should be guided by an addictions counsellor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist in prior collaboration with the family.

Treatment for Cocaine Abuse

Cocaine addiction treatments can be both behavioural and pharmacological. Behavioural therapy focuses on psychosocial issues to deal with the underlying motivations and psychological problems associated with cocaine addiction. Pharmacological treatment administers medication to alleviate cocaine withdrawal symptoms. Cocaine withdrawal plummets patients into deep depression which is a traumatising process that needs to be managed carefully.

Recovery Services Include

People with a cocaine use disorder need a therapeutic non-punitive, managed detox environment to “detox”. The environment must typically have the following professionally managed services.

  • Medical monitoring/medication
  • Individual, group and family therapy
  • Introduction to anonymous groups
  • Sober activities and education
  • Relapse prevention training and aftercare

Getting free from cocaine is more than staying in a treatment centre, your sobriety will demand an ongoing commitment to long-term aftercare to be successful.

Addiction Is a Family Disease

Cocaine addiction can push families to breaking point. Unity, finances, and wellbeing deteriorate as sufferers manipulate, lie, justify and deny their addiction. “Don’t hate the person, hate the drug” are seemingly meaningless words in the face of an active cocaine addiction where so many life altering things have transpired within the family dynamic. Understanding that families of cocaine abusers need as much support as these people themselves is an important part of the recovery process. Chat to us about how we can help reestablish the communication and new boundaries.

Sustainable Aftercare

The Recovery Direct aftercare treatment methodology integrates to fit within your day to day work, family and social life so that patients are always in a state of treatment. Aftercare consists of a regulated individual and group meetings and a host of family reintegration and support services.
Social, family environment, family history, personality traits, peer pressure, stress, physical and/or emotional trauma, impulsive behaviour, coping skills and mental health disorders all influence addiction and the success of recovery.

What is Cocaine?

Cocaine is a powerful stimulant of natural origin; the drug is extracted from leaves of the coca plant (Erythroxylon coca), found in the Andean highlands of South America. The alkaloid content of coca leaves is relatively low, between 0.25% and 0.77% and requires a process called “acid / base extraction” to separate cocaine from the plants.
