Cocaine Addiction Treatment

Repair, Rebuild, and Renew

Cocaine addiction treatment encompasses a multifaceted approach to address the complex challenges associated with dependency on this powerful stimulant.

Cocaine addiction is a serious and widespread issue that has devastating consequences for individuals and society as a whole.

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) reports that a staggering 2% of Americans aged 12 and older used cocaine in 2019, highlighting the urgent need for action. The impact of cocaine addiction is far-reaching, causing physical and mental health problems, damaging relationships, and contributing to crime rates and economic burdens. Those struggling with cocaine addiction must seek professional help to overcome this destructive habit.

Signs and Symptoms of Cocaine Addiction

Cocaine addiction is characterized by a multitude of signs and symptoms, some of which include:
Individuals addicted to cocaine often exhibit dilated pupils, elevated heart rates, and excessive energy, followed by crashes marked by fatigue and depression as the drug’s effects wane. Physical manifestations may also include frequent nosebleeds, significant weight loss, and dental problems.
Cocaine addiction is evident in compulsive drug-seeking behavior. This growing tolerance drives users to consume more, and withdrawal symptoms like irritability and restlessness when they try to quit.
Cocaine profoundly influences the brain’s reward system, fueling an intense craving for the drug. This can lead to impaired decision-making, impulsivity, and cognitive issues.
Chronic cocaine use poses severe long-term mental and physical health risks. It can result in mental health problems like anxiety, paranoia, and hallucinations, as well as physical health issues such as cardiovascular complications, respiratory problems, and harm to various organ systems.
Recognizing the signs and symptoms of cocaine use is crucial for early intervention and to prevent the potentially devastating consequences of addiction.

Cocaine Addiction Treatment Options

Inpatient Programs

Inpatient rehabilitation programs provide individuals with 24/7 care in a structured environment, ensuring they receive intensive treatment and support.

Behavioral Therapies

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and contingency management help clients identify triggers and develop coping strategies to resist drug use.


Individual and group counseling sessions provide a supportive environment for addressing addiction’s psychological and emotional aspects.

Holistic Approaches

These encompass activities such as yoga, meditation, and nutritional support, aimed at enhancing overall well-being and addressing the physical, psychological, and emotional facets of addiction.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Clients with co-occurring mental health issues, dual diagnosis treatment programs address both addiction and underlying psychiatric conditions.

Support Groups and Community-Based Recovery

Groups like Narcotics Anonymous and SMART Recovery aid cocaine addiction recovery through peer support, coping strategies, and community building.

These diverse treatment options offer individuals the flexibility to choose the best approach to their needs, increasing the likelihood of successful recovery from cocaine addiction.

Aftercare and Ongoing Support

Aftercare is an essential component of long-term success in cocaine addiction recovery. It offers various supportive services and strategies that individuals can access once they have completed their initial treatment program. The ultimate goal of aftercare is to empower individuals to maintain their sobriety, prevent relapse, and successfully reintegrate into their communities. This often involves ongoing counseling or therapy sessions that are specifically tailored to address cocaine addiction, participation in support groups that are focused on addiction recovery, and educational programs that equip individuals with essential life skills.

Additionally, aftercare plans may include regular check-ins with a counselor or sponsor who specializes in cocaine addiction, as well as practical assistance in areas such as securing stable housing and employment. By providing a structured and supportive framework beyond the initial treatment phase, aftercare significantly enhances an individual’s prospects of achieving sustained recovery and a healthier, cocaine-free life.

Dear Renewal Lodge Visitors,

My name is John Bruna, co-founder of the Mindfulness in Recovery® Institute, and more importantly, a grateful member of the recovery community. I am incredibly fortunate to have found my recovery in 1984. Of course, I did not achieve continuous recovery through willpower or my own efforts, but through the guidance and caring support of countless others that selflessly taught me how to live through the 12 Steps.

My journey of recovery brought this once homeless, shame-based, traumatized, insecure young man to a life far beyond anything I could have ever imagined. I discovered self-worth, the joy of helping others, the gifts of parenting and grandparenting, and most importantly the ability to live a meaningful and purposeful life with integrity.

One of the greatest gifts of recovery is that I have the opportunity to give back and help others discover their self-worth, dignity, and the skills to fully live lives that they find truly meaningful. This is the inspiration for developing the skills of Mindfulness in Recovery® (MIR) to meet the needs of new generations struggling with alcohol and other substance use disorders. MIR is a set of evidence-based skills designed to help people fully integrate their tools of recovery in ways that are personalized, practical, and in alignment with their deepest values.

While we train counselors and therapists throughout the United States and abroad, I personally have chosen to work directly with the amazing team and clients at Renewal Lodge to develop the model MIR 12-step program for the nation. I choose Renewal Lodge because of the vision of its mission and the dedication of its team. Renewal Lodge is an extremely rare environment in which the staff embodies the very mindfulness and 12-step practices and skills they offer their clients. The results have been beyond my expectations. It is an honor to be here and I treasure my personal time with every client I meet.

With Gratitude,

John Bruna
