Crack Addiction Treatment

There are roughly 1.9 million cocaine users in America, around 400,000 of which use crack as their preferred drug of choice. Crack addiction treatment programs can seem scary, but seeking substance abuse treatment early is the key to long-term recovery.

Through a combination of therapy sessions, overcoming crack addiction is possible. At 4 Seasons Detox, we offer highly effective treatments and therapies for crack addiction. Our team is committed to helping you defeat crack addiction and providing you with the best chance of long-term recovery.

You may have heard the term “crack” or “crack cocaine” to refer to this illicit drug. Cocaine is created from the coca plant and is heavily abused for its intense euphoria and high. However, when combined with baking soda, boiled, and then cooled, cocaine becomes a solid form of crystalized rock called crack. Crack is usually sold in pieces for someone to smoke.

Since the high from crack lasts only around an hour max, this can quickly lead to a binge and crash cycle, forming an almost immediate crack addiction and dependency.

Recovering from a crack addiction can present numerous physical and psychological challenges. The best way to defeat a crack addiction is to receive professional care from a certified drug and alcohol rehab such as 4 Seasons Detox and Recovery House.

Frequently, individuals struggling with a crack addiction are so used to being surrounded by those who accept or support their addiction that they don’t see a problem with it. If you’ve never looked into a crack addiction treatment center before, you may be wondering if you really need treatment for crack abuse. Here are some common signs that cocaine addiction treatment may be a good idea:

1. You often isolate yourself to use or hide the amount of crack you use from others.
2. You begin to experience crack withdrawal symptoms as soon as your last dose has worn off.
3. You need to take more crack to experience the same high as the last time you used the drug.
4. You have lost romantic relationships, friendships, and family relationships due to your crack addiction.
5. You have experienced significant financial or property loss to fund your crack addiction.
6. You have begun to experience new or worsening mental health disorders from your crack abuse.
7. You have tried to quit crack cocaine cold turkey in the past but could not achieve long-term recovery.

Attending a drug and alcohol treatment facility specializing in crack addiction will significantly improve your chances of long-term recovery. We are here to help you get and stay clean.

Detoxing from crack can be incredibly difficult due to the “come-down” from the high it causes. Crack withdrawal is accompanied by severe withdrawal, intense cravings, and physical and psychological discomfort. While withdrawing from crack may look different depending on the individual, common symptoms include intense cravings, anxiety, fatigue, depression, insomnia, and more. 

These symptoms usually last anywhere from 3 to 7 days but can last longer. Depends on how heavily someone uses them. Heavy crack users are at risk of experiencing post-acute withdrawal symptoms (PAWS), which involve symptoms that can last as long as 18-24 months.

Before entering a treatment center for crack addiction, individuals will need to complete medical detox. During medical detox, our addiction treatment team of professionals supports patients 24/7 a day to ensure their comfort and safety. Furthermore, our medical team will determine if medication-assisted treatment is right for you based on your unique situation. Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) involves using specific medications to decrease cravings and ease crack withdrawal symptoms. 

Following crack detox, we inspire clients to enter inpatient treatment to discover what led to their crack addiction, which is a necessary next step in long-term recovery. Crack abuse can lead to a host of health issues if left not treated.

There are a variety of different treatment program types that may assist you in the recovery journey. Here are some of the most common treatment center models.

Medical Detox

Medical Detox is the first step toward lasting recovery from crack addiction. During crack detox, you will receive 24/7 care and support from our medical team to ensure a safe, comfortable, and effective withdrawal process.

Residential Treatment

Residential treatment, also referred to as inpatient rehab or inpatient treatment, provides a safe atmosphere where clients live at our drug rehab for 24/7 care and supervision. The length of stay at our residential treatment center depends on factors such as substance abuse history and other medical concerns. During residential treatment, clients partake in numerous therapies such as individual, group, and family therapy while attending support meetings, educational courses, and more to gain the tools needed for long-term recovery from crack addiction.

Partial Hospitalization Treatment

After completing residential treatment, clients are encouraged to participate in partial hospitalization. A partial hospitalization program is a form of outpatient treatment that includes evidence-based therapies and treatment modalities for a certain number of hours per day and days per week to treat crack addiction, after which participants return home to sleep. 

For example, clients may attend our partial hospitalization program (PHP) for crack addiction for 6 hours per day, 5 days per week. While attending partial hospitalization, clients participate in various approaches to addiction treatment, such as 12-step programs, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, EMDR therapy, holistic therapies, individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy, and more.

Outpatient Treatment

After completing residential treatment or partial hospitalization, clients are encouraged to participate in outpatient rehab. Traditional outpatient treatment offers ongoing support and therapies for continued recovery following intensive crack addiction treatment.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment

An innovative mental health services approach, this treatment works to address any mental health condition in addition to crack addiction. Some of these can include anxiety disorders, depression, eating disorders, PTSD, bipolar disorder, and others.

Individual Therapy Sessions

Individual counseling is a special care approach where clients meet with a counselor one-on-one to address their crack abuse and establish the coping skills needed for recovery. During individual therapy, counselors cover topics such as the root causes of crack addiction, triggers, and tools to defeat it.

Group Therapy Sessions

While taking part in group therapy, clients meet with other individuals in varying stages of recovery, whether suffering from crack addiction or other addictions and associated disorders, to collectively discuss their substance use and behavioral health conditions. During group therapy, clients get the chance to strengthen their support network to help strengthen their crack recovery.

Family Therapy Sessions

It’s common for those struggling with crack addiction to have loved ones negatively affected by their addiction. During family counseling, a therapist will work with the recovering crack addict and their family to address issues that may affect their journey to a sober life. This is also a great approach for those who need additional family support or whose family members need help understanding crack addiction.

Therapeutic Activities

Moreover, therapeutic activities offer a creative outlet to develop coping skills for crack addiction recovery. Some activities include nature therapy, animal therapy, art therapy, meditation therapy, music therapy, and more.
