Many people mistakenly think they can experiment with a potent drug like cocaine but control their use of it. Unfortunately, they often end up spiraling down into addiction. Our cocaine addiction treatment in Tampa Bay provides the lifeline needed to climb out of addiction. Our experienced staff leads each individual through a variety of therapies that help end substance use disorders. If you need help with cocaine addiction or know someone who does, our outpatient program may be just the answer you’re looking for.

What is Cocaine Addiction?

Cocaine is designated as a Schedule II drug, which means using it carries a big potential for becoming addicted to it. It can be taken via several methods, including snorting, smoking, and injecting. It can also be converted into a rock form called crack cocaine. The use of cocaine can start casually or recreationally but end up causing the person to develop a substance use disorder. 

Cocaine addiction is a medical condition that requires professional treatment. When someone uses cocaine, it floods their brain with feel-good chemicals like dopamine. The body, which normally produces this chemical on its own, loses the ability to do so when addiction develops. The individual begins to rely on abusing cocaine to feel the pleasure and joy the drug artificially creates. However, the high feeling only lasts for short bursts of time. Because of this, they use increasing amounts in order to keep getting the payoff. Once this happens, going for cocaine addiction treatment in Tampa becomes necessary in order to overcome the addiction.

What to Expect at our Cocaine Addiction Treatment in Tampa Bay

Our first goal is to make everyone who trusts us with their treatment feel comfortable. We employ a team who approaches each person with compassion and understanding. We know that addiction is a disease but, more importantly, we know it can be overcome. Our cocaine addiction treatment program centers around offering several kinds of therapy. Each one offers ways to help people get to know themselves, resolve past issues, and learn to resist relapse.

We provide individual therapy, which forms the backbone of someone making peace with their situation and learning how to move forward. We also include family therapy, which can help heal the damage done by cocaine addiction. Other therapy choices include holistic therapy, red light therapy, brainspotting, and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR).

Because the use of FDA-approved medications can help ease symptoms of drug withdrawal and cravings, we also offer medication-assisted treatment. We also provide options for meds that help ease mental health disorder symptoms, including anxiety and depression, that often accompany initially becoming sober.

How Our Cocaine Addiction Treatment Works

We begin our cocaine addiction treatment by getting to know each person who comes to us for help. By performing a thorough assessment, we learn what the person needs in order to be successful in overcoming their addiction. We offer Partial Hospitalization Programs and Intensive Outpatient Programs that allow people to seek the vital help they need during the day. This gives them a flexible schedule to still have the time between sessions, at night, and on the weekends that they need for their personal responsibilities. We provide a menu of options for different kinds of therapy proven to help people with substance use disorders. Under the guidance of skilled and compassionate therapists and other treatment team members, each individual learns to understand their addiction and how to overcome it. This provides each person with the ability to replace addictive behaviors with healthy coping skills.
