What Is Cocaine and Meth Addiction?
Cocaine and methamphetamine are both powerful stimulant drugs with similar addiction profiles and similar resulting physical and psychological effects. The following article discusses cocaine addiction treatment and methamphetamine addiction treatment.
Addiction is a chronic physical and behavioral illness. This condition results in a lack of control in which the person struggling with addiction ignores the consequences of seeking and using drugs. They may progressively use more and more of the substance even when they want to stop, or they may engage in risky behaviors to get drugs that jeopardize their health and safety.
Addiction to drugs is not just a mental and emotional addiction. Repeated use of a substance causes the body to become dependent on it. Being dependent on drugs means that when a person stops using them, their body goes through withdrawal. Withdrawal from cocaine or meth causes symptoms like depression, agitation, fatigue, discomfort, and increased appetite.
Addiction to cocaine or crystal meth is like other substance-use disorders, but it may look a little bit different per individual. According to News in Health, a publication of the National Institutes of Health, and an article entitled “Understanding the Disease of Addiction” by Kathy Bettinardi-Angres and Dr. Daniel H Angres, symptoms of addiction include:
- Difficulty sleeping
- Mood swings and personality changes
- Memory problems
- Increased tolerance
- Relationship strain and conflict
- Increased isolation from friends
- Lack of interest in hobbies
Withdrawing from family and friends, or missing obligations because of cocaine or meth are strong indications of addiction. However, if a person is experiencing health problems because of stimulant use and is continuing to use it, this is a definite and dangerous sign.
Compassionate Treatment For Stimulant Addiction
How Do I Know If I Need Treatment For Addiction to Cocaine/Meth
When a person first begins to use meth or cocaine, they may use it socially or for recreation, but they will feel no compulsion to indulge in it. What starts as a once-a-year or once-a-month occasion turns into a once-a-night binge.
With continued and extreme use, this person will begin to crave it and experience changes in mood when they’ve gone too long without it.
Dr. Paul Earley, an expert on addiction, describes a cycle that people who are addicted to cocaine fall into in a pamphlet called “The Cocaine Addiction Cycle.” When casual use becomes heavy use, binges result in a feeling of regret. Strong promises are made to never use again. Perhaps the user even gets others involved to help them stay clean, but within hours or days, the cycle begins again with a new binge.
Desperation for another hit may cause the person to indulge in riskier behavior. For example, a person may spend their entire paycheck on cocaine, spend time in dangerous areas with unpredictable people, break laws haphazardly, or put their health at even greater risk.
Ingesting drugs in more invasive and dangerous ways is an example of riskier behavior that may result from substance use that has progressed to addiction. From snorting, a person may progress to smoking or shooting up meth or crack, especially in an attempt to overcome a built-up tolerance. Methods like these put a person at extreme risk of overdose.
Cocaine & Meth Addiction Treatment: Getting Help
Treatment for addiction to cocaine or methamphetamine is available through a few different methods. Whatever the method a person chooses to receive help, the most important part of recovery from addiction is the creation of a support network. Oftentimes, the best way to gain support, repair bridges with family members, and build a community is through a treatment program at a recovery center.
Options for an addiction treatment center vary depending on the severity of the addiction. Some treatment centers are more equipped to handle detoxification, while some will be more focused on improving mental and emotional health alongside addiction recovery support.
Regardless of the type of treatment, each level of care should include these basic program features:
- Addiction counseling
- Group and individual therapy
- Family involvement
- Evidence-based therapy modalities
- Individualized treatment
- Life skills and coping skills training
- Group and peer support
Programs with these features are well-rounded and include mental, emotional, holistic, and social treatment that can help the whole person to recover and stay recovered.
Treatment Is Covered By Insurance

Cocaine & Meth Rehab Levels of Care
Inpatient (Residential) Treatment – Inpatient treatment, sometimes called residential treatment, requires patients to stay in a facility for long-term support. Inpatient facilities sometimes include Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP) which are most often equipped to provide medically-assisted detoxification or to provide detox support for those who are just beginning their recovery journey. If you’re looking for cocaine rehab, PHP is probably a good place to start.
Treatment of this intensity is designed for people who are just beginning their recovery. Perhaps they have no coping skills, are suffering from mental health conditions that make them more likely to abuse drugs, or are recovering from an overdose. Inpatient treatment centers are the most intense level of care.
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) – Usually a person who graduates from a residential treatment program will continue their treatment in intensive outpatient therapy. IOP still gives patients a great deal of oversight and support to help them begin transitioning back into normal life. Patients may continue to attend therapy and meetings every day while still living at home.
A person doesn’t have to begin in residential treatment to enter an IOP. Residential treatment isn’t feasible for everyone due to work or family obligations, so someone who still needs intensive support or who doesn’t have a strong support network at home could benefit from this level of care.
Outpatient Program (OP) – If a person is not in need of intensive care any longer and has a support system at home, they can continue treatment and recovery through outpatient care. This may require a few visits a week or less. This is a transition step to help those in recovery settle back into their normal lives.
A person who isn’t moving from another level of care into outpatient care may just be looking for additional support that their primary therapist cannot provide. Outpatient programs can be a great way to learn skills and form connections to aid in recovery.
Counseling/Therapy – A person who is doing well with their recovery will still need regular contact with a counselor or therapist to hold them accountable and provide them with support on their journey. Hopefully, their therapist has been with them through every stage of treatment and can be a rock that stays with them through each challenge of recovery.
In more than 9 million US adults, addiction is accompanied by other mental health or substance use problems, or multiple mental health problems overlap. This is called a co-occurring disorder. Whether a person turns to substance use because of their mental health problems or they develop mental health problems because of substance abuse, statistically, they go hand-in-hand.
Regular visits to a counselor or therapist can help a person struggling with addiction to manage their mental health. If mental health problems trigger addiction, then a therapist can help reduce triggers that may lead to relapse and teach coping skills for difficult days.
Medication – Not everyone who decides to stop using cocaine will use medication to assist in their detoxification, but medication is an option to lessen the symptoms of withdrawal and keep them in recovery for longer.
If not for detoxification, a person may be prescribed medication for their secondary mental health condition to help them avoid triggers and stay in recovery.
12 Step Cocaine Anonymous – A 12 Step program for those suffering from cocaine addiction can provide tangible steps toward recovery and a community of individuals to give life-long support in sobriety. Every US state has a 12-step program and many treatment centers offer 12-step resources for those who ask.
Specialized Addiction Programs
Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) – Addiction to stimulants like cocaine and methamphetamine sometimes cannot be adequately treated with traditional drug counseling and therapy. Unlike opioid dependence, however, there are no “replacement” medications that are approved to reduce cravings or prevent relapse. For this reason, we currently do not offer medication-assisted treatment for cocaine addiction at All In Solutions. There are some medications that have shown promise however.
Propranolol, for example, may be helpful in stabilizing patients during early recovery. Other medications like Antabuse, Baclofen, Topamax, Provigil, and Gabitril have shown some potential as relapse prevention aids.
Faith-Based Recovery Program – Since the early 1930’s, even before the program now know as Alcoholics Anonymous was founded, recovering addicts and alcoholics have recognized the power that faith in a higher power can have in transforming their lives. Christian drug rehabs and faith-based recovery programs have built on this idea by utilizing Biblical teachings and spiritual principles to supplement the reconstructive program guided by the 12 steps.
In many faith based addiction programs, including the one offered at All In Solutions, Christian and 12 step elements are combined with evidence-based therapeutic practices to provide biological, psychological, social, and spiritual change.
Meth & Cocaine Addiction Center FAQ
Not every treatment center is built alike. However, individual programs aren’t a blanket fix for every kind of person. Finding the right kind of treatment is an important step to staying sober.
That being said, recovery is a life-long journey in which relapse is not just a possibility, but a likelihood. The point of receiving treatment is to provide tools to help those who’ve experienced a relapse to adjust course and try again.
Every person’s recovery journey is different, but receiving specialized help can increase the likelihood of success. Recovery centers that see positive results include best practice treatment for mental health and addiction and continue to provide resources and support after discharge.
Relapse is a part of recovery, and recovery is a life-long cycle, but addiction treatment can make relapses fewer and farther between and give you the resources to manage your triggers and mental health to continue making the choice to be sober.
There are many things to consider when deciding whether you should attend inpatient or outpatient treatment. Can you take time off from work? Will someone be able to watch your children? Can you afford residential treatment? If you answered no to any of those questions, inpatient treatment may not be your best option.
If you answered yes to those questions and are still unsure, it may come down to your level of need. Those who have a strong support system at home may do fine with outpatient treatment alone, especially if they’ve already detoxed. Those who have not and feel they cannot get free of Cocaine alone should probably enter inpatient care.
In short, outpatient treatment is better for those who have strict obligations and have support at home. Inpatient treatment is best for those who have the ability to get away and need help and supervision to get off of cocaine or meth.
