If you or a loved one is battling an addiction to cocaine, also known as “coke”, “crack”, “snow”, “white bricks”, and other street names, you aren’t alone. This drug is the most commonly abused in the entire world. About 5 million Americans are regular cocaine users, and because cocaine is an extremely addictive substance - it is possible to become addicted after using the drug only once - it is estimated that most of those people struggle with a substance use disorder. However, the right treatment program can be the solution for people who want to find healing and freedom from addiction. Better Tomorrow Treatment Center, located near Delray Beach, Florida, might be the best place for you to get the help you need and achieve sobriety.

What constitutes a cocaine addiction, and why is it harmful?
Every substance abuse disorder is physically, emotionally, mentally, and relationally harmful, and a cocaine addiction is no exception. Cocaine is a plant-derived stimulant that is commonly smoked, inhaled, or injected; it releases the dopamine, a chemical that stimulates the pleasure centers in the brain. This gives users a high which results quickly in a crash. Over time, users build up a tolerance and require higher doses of the drug, more frequently, to produce the same desired effect.
Regular cocaine use can result in a physical dependence on the drug, which because the drug affects your nervous system, is incredibly destructive. Addiction can lead to both short-term and long-term damage, including depression, psychosis, insomnia, severe heart problems, high blood pressure, seizures, respiratory failure, lung damage, liver damage, infertility, tooth decay, sudden death (or death due to overdose complications) and much more. Cocaine is the most frequently mentioned illegal drug reported to the Drug Abuse Warning Network by hospital emergency rooms. Cocaine-related deaths are also on the rise; in 2018, over 14,000 people in the U.S. died of a cocaine-related overdose (in many of these cases, the drug was mixed with other dangerous substances by street dealers). Being dependent on cocaine can make people violent and impair decision-making, which can make it difficult to find employment, stay in a healthy relationship, or qualify for housing.
If a person is unable to quit using cocaine despite repeat negative consequences, it is likely that an addiction has developed. Addiction is a disease, and healing IS possible with the right treatment, which may include detox, behavioral therapies, family education, group and individual counseling, exercise, and more. In many cases, inpatient rehab may offer individuals battling addiction the best chance for success. Our Delray Beach cocaine addiction treatment center exists to enhance the lives of men and women living with the destructive effects of cocaine addiction by providing the quality substance abuse treatment they need to get clean, stay clean, and live a healthy life.

What are the Delray Beach cocaine addiction treatment programs at Better Tomorrow like?
Our treatment center is not the right place for everyone, because everyone’s recovery journey is unique. Before you can be admitted to Better Tomorrow, you need to complete a pre-admission screening so we can determine if we are the right fit for you. If we aren’t, we will do our best to put you in touch with other resources that may be better options! If you are accepted, your treatment journey will begin immediately. You will check into clinical, complete intake, attend orientation, complete assessments, and meet the other patients and staff team while a clinical cocaine addiction recovery program is designed specifically for your unique needs. Days 1 through 45 will consist of a rigorous schedule of treatment that may include detox, Day/Night, IOP group therapy, individual counseling, and more. You will come to understand your addiction, learn to identify your triggers, and set recovery goals that you will begin working towards. Days 45-90 will consist of you and our team working together to create a long-term plan for recovery as well as an immediate discharge plan. Most of our patients complete their programs at 90 days, but you can phase down to outpatient status and continue to receive supportive care if you need more time.
How much does it cost?
