How addictive is cocaine?

Cocaine is an incredibly addictive substance that can cause a variety of health problems and other risks. Cocaine comes second to meth in terms of creating psychological dependence by stimulating the brain’s key pleasure centres and causing extremely intensified euphoria. Repeated cocaine use alters the way the brain functions, and encourages the user to continue to use the drug in order to reach the same levels of euphoria. The timeline of cocaine addiction varies from person to person due to the way their brain reacts and how often they use it. For example, people who smoke crack cocaine usually become addicted at a much faster rate.

Cocaine addicts can experience numerous physical health effects of cocaine dependence, such as:

  • Blood vessel constriction

What treatment methods are used in cocaine addiction treatment?

Cocaine addiction treatment usually requires a combination of physical detox and addiction treatment. Cocaine withdrawal does not involve physical symptoms like with alcohol or heroin addiction, however it can still be very uncomfortable, and even dangerous for some. Withdrawing from chronic substance abuse should not be taken lightly due to the risk of overdose or suicide. Prior to treatment, The Dawn requires all clients to undergo a qualitative assessment so that a personalised treatment plan can be created to address each client’s specific requirements.


Those that require detoxification can use The Dawn’s onsite detox programme prior to their addiction treatment. Our holistic approach to addiction treatment allows our clients to participate in our very own Twin Pillars Approach, which focuses on rehab and wellness. We use a combination of methods to ensure that our clients receive the best treatment possible, including Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), the 12 Step principles, and a range of mindfulness tools such as mindful hearing/breathing and mindful observation/awareness.

We also draw attention to the root causes behind our client’s addiction in order to find out why they developed addiction in the first place. This type of intervention helps to determine key triggers, present positive thinking and point out the necessity of lifestyle discipline.


The Dawn’s personalised schedules include:


  • One-on-one counselling
  • Group counselling
  • Exercise therapy
  • Holistic and alternative therapies
  • Weekly excursions
  • A relapse prevention plan

What are the benefits of inpatient cocaine rehab?

There are many benefits of inpatient rehab for cocaine addiction, such as:

Private setting

It is important for recovering addicts to take the time and space that they need to truly focus on themselves. When addicts stay at an inpatient facility, they do not get to return to their regular environment at the end of the day, which limits their exposure to triggers (such as places, people and events) and aids in their recovery.

24/7 care and support

Ceasing to use a drug is not easy, especially on your own. Severe cocaine cravings can occur, along with intense and difficult emotions. Having professionals and staff onsite round-the-clock can help clients deal with any of these issues whenever they occur.

Structured programme

Inpatient rehab facilities ensure that their clients always have something to do, such as therapy sessions or a wide variety of activities. Not only does a scheduled programme help to reduce cravings, it also ensures that clients are exposed to key components of treatment.
