Treatment options for cocaine abuse and addiction in Ohio include medical detox, inpatient and outpatient treatment plans, mental health services, and aftercare.

Cocaine is a potent, habit-forming drug of abuse due to the euphoric and stimulant effects of cocaine. Over time, the side effects of cocaine abuse may outweigh the short-term positive effects.

Cocaine addiction treatment options in Ohio include medical detox for the management of withdrawal symptoms, behavioral therapy, mental health services, and long-term aftercare planning. These services are offered in both inpatient and outpatient settings throughout Ohio.

If left unchecked, cocaine addiction can cause a decreased quality of life, poor mental health, and life-threatening cocaine overdose. The habit-forming nature of cocaine can make it difficult to quit without professional help.

Cocaine addiction treatment programs provide resources and professional assistance in the physical and mental health aspects of cocaine use disorders, which patients may not be able to access on their own.

With an effective treatment provider, patients may learn healthy habits and improve their chances of sobriety long-term.

Cocaine Detox

Detox is the process of cleansing a drug from a person’s system. If detox occurs in a person suffering from cocaine dependence, the body may enter cocaine withdrawal. 

The body in a dependent state may operate normally when cocaine binds to receptors in the central nervous system, leading to a chemical imbalance when usage stops.

Cocaine withdrawal symptoms may include insomnia, depression, cravings, and paranoia. The discomfort caused by withdrawal can lead to a relapse, which can make detox risky without professional help.

A medical detox program can help patients manage their cocaine withdrawal and place them in a safe, monitored environment. Depending on the severity of substance abuse, patients may be asked to stay at a detox center throughout the process.

Behavioral Therapy Services

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) can help patients identify and avoid triggers that can lead to cocaine or crack cocaine use.

Other effective forms of therapy for cocaine addiction include motivational incentives, which reward patients who maintain their drug-free goals, and group therapy, which allows patients to connect with people in similar conditions.

Mental Health Services

Substance use disorders have a high comorbidity, or likelihood of occurring, with mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and bipolar disorder.

Co-occurring disorders can create a cycle of poor mental health and cocaine abuse. The decreased quality of life caused by mental health problems can lead to high-risk drug use patterns, and vice versa.

As of 2021, 27.7% of Ohio residents who had symptoms of anxiety or depression reported an unmet need for mental health services, highlighting the importance of these services. 

Mental health services offered by substance abuse treatment facilities can address a potential root issue of drug abuse, especially in the long-term.

Aftercare Planning

Patients who complete a rehab program may still be at risk for cocaine abuse, especially after they leave the treatment center. Effective aftercare can be a part of long-term relapse prevention and sobriety from cocaine.

Aftercare planning may involve coordinating a healthy lifestyle while undergoing treatment. Patients may commit to a long-term schedule of attending support groups, engaging in wellness exercises, and moving into sober living housing after treatment is over.
