Benefits of Outpatient Cocaine Rehab

Some people are more susceptible than others to developing a cocaine addiction. They may have genetic differences or environmental influences that predispose them to the impulsive use of cocaine. Once started, cocaine users develop a tolerance to the drug quickly and cravings are intense, leading to the use of more cocaine, and ultimately, dependency, and addiction.

Effects of Cocaine

Cocaine is a one of the most addictive stimulants that speeds up bodily processes and can make a person hyperactive, nervous, paranoid, talkative, and anxious. It has anesthetic properties that produce a numbing effect and may be used in limited surgical operations, such as eye injuries. Cocaine stimulates the central nervous system and can be dangerous. It increases heart rate, blood pressure, and respirations which can lead to heart attacks, stroke, overdose, and death.

Cocaine addiction causes physiological changes to areas of the brain that regulate thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse cocaine, like any other drug addictions, “is a complex disease that involves biological changes in the brain as well as myriad social, familial, and other environmental problems.”

Benefits of Outpatient Cocaine Rehab

Outpatient care allows you to stay close to your family.

There are currently, no medications available to treat cocaine addiction and outpatient rehab can be just as beneficial as inpatient rehab, offering many of the same services. For those who have little or no history of relapse and are not suffering from other mental health or physical disorders, the benefits of outpatient cocaine rehab are:

  • Ensured safety during detox with qualified clinicians who are aware of the symptoms and have experience providing needed support to mitigate withdrawals such as anxiety, depression, or insomnia and intervene in other complications when necessary.
  • Behavioral therapies and counseling based on what the person needs and access to a wide range of services that will not only help the addict, but, also their families.
  • The programs can be worked around schedules that allow the person to fulfill obligations at work, home, and in society without requiring them to remain in the facility on a 24 hour basis like inpatient cocaine rehabs require.
  • Flexible payment plans or reduced fees due to local agency sponsorships and decreased costs for staff and facility maintenance.
  • When the person accepts the decision for treatment, they need immediate access to a rehab. Ease of access seems to be greater for outpatient centers than inpatient centers, possibly because the facility stay requirements are considerably less. Therefore, services become available more often.
  • Building and maintaining a network of positive relationships is crucial to recovery and relapse prevention. Outpatient cocaine rehab can help the addict find people willing to help, ongoing resources, and support from others.
