Struggling with Cocaine Addiction? Get Help Now

Crack cocaine treatment can help you stop using drugs for good, but you need a talented partner. Get the help you need at Boca Recovery Center. 

Crack cocaine treatment at Boca Recovery Center typically begins with medical detox, so you can get sober safely. Then, you’ll enroll in comprehensive inpatient rehab treatment and spend every day working on a healthy future. Aftercare planning ensures you have continued help when you need it. 

As the U.S. Department of Justice points out, any form of cocaine can be addictive. However, smoking crack tends to cause addiction quicker than snorting powdered cocaine.[1] Whether your addiction is brand new, or you’ve been struggling for years, we can help. 

Crack Cocaine Treatment at Boca Recovery Center 

At Boca Recovery Center, we’ve helped thousands of people overcome addictions at our various facilities across the United States. We have the experience and expertise you need. Every treatment plan is personalized, but yours might include the following elements:

Medical Detox 

Stimulants cause mental health symptoms during withdrawal, such as agitation, irritability, depression, and insomnia. In severe cases, symptoms can be so severe that people pose a danger to themselves or others.[4] The goal of medical detox is to help you get sober in a safe, controlled environment, so you don’t relapse to feel better.

Stimulant withdrawal symptoms typically begin within 24 hours of last use, and they last for three to five days.[4] Common symptoms include the following:[4]

  • Agitation
  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Reduced appetite
  • Aching muscles
  • Psychotic symptoms (such as paranoia, hallucinations, and disordered thoughts)

People with psychosis may need anti-psychotic medications to feel better. However, the mainstay for stimulant withdrawal is supportive care and symptomatic treatment.[4] That means your doctor might use medications to treat the symptoms you experience as they appear.

Your Boca Recovery Center team might use antidepressant or antipsychotic medications to help correct chemical imbalances caused by drug abuse. Your team will also provide nutritious meals, plenty of fluids, and comfortable spaces for you to rest and relax.

If you want to talk about your crack addiction, your team is there to listen. However, if you’d rather have space to simply curl up and rest, that’s acceptable too. We’ll work with you during this transition time.

Medication-Assisted Treatment 

In a study about depression in cocaine withdrawal, researchers said this: “During cocaine withdrawal, transient depressive symptoms that do not meet the criteria for depression, but promote relapse, are frequently observed.”[3]

While no medications can ease your crack addiction directly, your Boca Recovery Center team can treat your symptoms, including those involving your mental health.

If you’ve used other drugs with your crack (like opioids), you may also benefit from targeted medications to treat those addictions.

The Boca Recovery Center team specializes in tailoring treatment to the needs of clients. You’ll get the help you want—and nothing you don’t—from your program.

Comprehensive Inpatient Rehab Treatment 

Recovery from crack addiction can take a long time, and you’re at high risk of relapse when detox is complete. Entering comprehensive inpatient care at Boca Recovery Center means protecting your sobriety, so you are less likely to slip.

All Boca Recovery Centers are drug-free facilities. You’ll be removed from the stresses and temptations that plague you at home. You’ll spend every day working on your recovery via counseling, medication management, nutrition, exercise, and more. 

Our programs typically last for 30 to 90 days—sometimes longer. More than 10,000 people have gotten the treatment they need at Boca Recovery Center. 

Therapy Options 

In therapy, you’ll learn more about how your addiction began and how you can change your life for the better. Your team will build a therapy program just for you from the long suite of approaches we have available. 

Some common therapies we use at Boca Recovery Center include the following:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT): You work with a therapist to understand the connection between your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to avoid relapse and learn coping skills.
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT): This type of CBT involves talk therapy and an education aspect to improve emotional regulation, distress tolerance, mindfulness, and interpersonal effectiveness.
  • Motivational enhancement therapy: This type of therapy focuses on resolving your ambivalence about entering treatment and stopping substance abuse.
  • Contingency management: You receive tangible rewards like vouchers or cash for abstinent behaviors, such as drug-free urine tests.
  • Group therapy: Facilitated by a mental health professional, you meet with other patients to discuss issues related to crack addiction, challenges, and successes. You may practice sober social skills, drug refusal strategies, and role-play.
  • Family therapy: Facilitated by a mental health professional, you and at least one family member meet to heal the damage caused by crack abuse, improve family bonds, and learn conflict resolution and communication skills.
  • Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR): A therapist works with you to reduce the distress related to traumatic memories, using focused eye movements.
  • Holistic and complementary therapies: Combined with evidence-based therapies, holistic therapies like creative arts therapy and yoga may help treat various aspects of addiction.
