Once the addict and family decide that help is needed, the first step is finding the right drug rehab center. A good drug rehab would have well staff, one-on-one counseling with staff that understands the effects of cocaine either as a former user or being part of a family of an addict. Peer support and nutritional education are important and integrated into the rehab program after the addict has gone through withdrawal.
Not all addicts have family support. This should not be a deterrent to seeking help for cocaine addiction. There are many former addicts that live a clean life that are willing to support the addict in their recovery, once the addict accepts and acknowledges they have a problem and want help.
Once the treatment is completed, there are several options available for entering back into society. This process of ending the treatment program can often be a scary step. There are support groups and half-way houses for the individual if that is an option they need.
