Residential cocaine treatment has become more advanced since cocaine first became illegal in the 1970’s. In fact, the very fact that we have residential cocaine treatment programs is an advancement in itself, considering that drugs, especially cocaine, really were not a part of residential treatment until the 1980’s cocaine epidemic.
With that said, you need to know that there are different types of residential cocaine treatment programs to consider. You need to consider all of your options in order to have the ability to choose which residential treatment program will be most effective for you. You have to be engaged in your recovery from the very beginning in order for sobriety to be an option for you. We will keep you informed and engaged in your residential cocaine addiction treatment as soon as you give us the chance by calling The Watershed at 1-800-861-1768.
Depending on the severity of your cocaine addiction, short-term residential cocaine treatment may be what is most effective for you. Short-term residential treatment usually lasts between 30 and 60 days. Because of the short length of time, you might find that short-term residential cocaine treatment programs are more intense. You will find that short-term residential cocaine treatment focuses mainly on the basic aspects of recovery, which can include getting you off all substances and having an in-depth look at why you used cocaine in the first place. You will probably experience a program that incorporates treatment services like a medical detox, relapse prevention, life building skills, counseling, and other treatment tools. Short term residential treatment will be effective for you if you are relatively new to your addiction, not suffering from any other addictions, and can be productive in an outpatient setting after a short period of time.
The shortest amount of time you can stay at The Watershed is two weeks. We do offer short-term residential cocaine treatment programs because we offer three different levels of treatment. Depending on your needs, you may stay 30 days in primary treatment, 30 days in extended care, and then 30 days or longer in sober living. This allows you to take as much time as you need to reach lasting sobriety. We can even set you up with our outpatient programs to help aid your recovery as well. Call The Watershed at 1-800-861-1768 to begin your treatment today.
Long-term residential cocaine treatment is significantly longer than short-term treatment. It can last anywhere from 3 months to over a year. Long-term residential cocaine treatment will probably be more effective for you if you have been dealing with your cocaine addiction for a long period of time, if you have any mental health issues, or if you have more than one addiction, otherwise known as poly-addictions. Either way, the reality is that a cocaine addiction is serious. Cocaine is so addicting that even just months after being clean, you may crave the drug. This is called Post Acute Withdrawal Symptoms (PAWS) because the cravings occur long after you have stopped using the drug. This is why long term residential treatment will probably be more effective for you because if you have been dealing with your addiction for months or even years, you need intensive therapies so you can relearn how to live with out the presence of cocaine.
During your long-term cocaine addiction treatment, you will focus on the same aspects of addiction that short term residential cocaine treatment programs provide but you will have a longer course of intense treatment. Moreover, you will be learning how to set goals, avoid relapse, think more positively, and how to deal with stress and find happiness without cocaine.
What we will help you focus on at The Watershed is how to re-teach your brain to seek reward and pleasure without cocaine. We will help you learn how to socialize as well as help you talk with your family through interpersonal and family approaches to treatment. Essentially, if you call The Watershed at 1-800-861-1768, you will be offered exactly the things you need to have a fulfilling, sober life again.
