Cocaine addiction program is made to clean and totally detoxify your body from this harmful substance. Taken in small quantities (up to 100 mg), cocaine provokes a feeling of euphoria, energy and talkativeness, as well as perception changes. It can also decrease temporarily the need for food and sleep. Some users find that drug helps help them to carry out simple physical and intellectual tasks faster. While others may experience the opposite effect.
1. Cocaine addiction program – Diagnostics
The first and most important phase of treatment. The essence of diagnosis is to assess the physical and mental condition of the patient. In order to assess the physical condition of the patient, the standard diagnosis examination includes: urine test, tests for hepatitis B and C. Diagnosis also includes a test for HIV infection, general analysis of blood, biochemical blood test, ECG. Internist doctor is going to examine you. In order to assess the mental state of the patient, a standard diagnosis examination includes following tests. Psycho-diagnosis is on a first place and it includes psychological tests used to determine the level of dependence. Also, this test will show the extent to which the use of cocaine has affected the mental health and whether there are signs of mental disturbance. This test can be indicator whether depression is present.
After diagnostics, the results are examined by a team of doctors, in order to develop a treatment strategy and plan. In the case that the diagnosis reveals serious deviations in the tests, there can be organized additional tests or treatment for the accompanying diseases. Depending on the problem, there can be prescribed MRT, EEG, ultrasound, X-ray, endoscopy and analyses of the concentration of drugs and narcotics. But, there can be examinations by cardiologists, neurologists, endocrinologists, specialists in infectious diseases etc. Additional tests are not included in the price of this treatment package. They are paid additionally.
2. Infusions and N.E.T (Neuro Jet) therapy
The next step is the start of the treatment, which involves treatment by infusions and the Neuro-Jetdevice. Infusions include multivitamins, minerals and a complex of amino acids combined in such a way as to enhance metabolism and appetite. This will givie back to patients the power they need to continue the therapy, because our treatment at our clinic is intense and therefore effective.
The Neuro-Jet device emits soft vibrating electric waves through connectors located on the neck area of the patient. The treatment is completely painless and contributes to the regulation of dopamine and endorphins in the body. Also, this treatment will help patient overcome the first stages of the crises, when the patient quits the substance.
3. Cocaine addiction program – Elimination of cravings
Elimination of cravings – on a subconscious level. This is done by means of the information therapy. The patient spends a couple of hours in a medically induced sleep under audio-visual stimulation coming from a computer. During this stage there will be help with special headphones and glasses, which transmit high-frequency signals. If the patient is conscious, we may encounter mental blocking (such as: „I am not an addict“; „I do not need that“; „That does not help me“; „It has no effect on me“ etc.)
Hypnotherapy – is used to get to the root of the addiction problem, because in this condition the patient’s subconscious provides guidance, in order to solve the problem with the help of a psychologist. It is also used in the case of patients on treatment, whole partially lose their motivation and desire to continue the rehabilitation program and wish to return to the old habits. In this way the psychologist tries to restore the patient’s ability to control the desire for the substance by strengthening the patient’s psyche.
5. Cocaine addiction program – Psychotherapy
Psychotherapy training – is the part of the treatment, which involves rehabilitation at psychological level. With the help of psychiatrists and psychologists, patients build a defense mechanism against the substance and the desire to consume it. We apply this approach daily at the individual and group level. In groups, people talk about their problems as the consequences that the substance caused to them. Patients are educated about the substances and the long-term consequences of using them, creating thus a subconscious aversion to them.
6. Physiotherapists support
Throughout the treatment, patients have the support of our physiotherapists, because physiotherapy gives excellent results in combination with our therapies. The body needs support, in order to go through all the procedures that our clinic offers to patients. It helps to relieve stress and accelerates the blood flow through the body, accelerating thus the flow of the medication in the patient’s body. In that way, the treatment provides faster and better effect.
7. Aversive therapy
8. Outpatient treatment
Anti-relapse outpatient support One of the most important stages for the complete recovery of the addict is the stage of preserving treatment results. The clinic will be in contact with the patient and his/her family for at least one year. Respecting outpatient treatment rules, following the action plan, learning a new way of life, taking the supportive medical therapy and coming to check-ups help the patient to feel safe and comfortable, when sober, and ensure a high success rate of treatment.
