August 4, 2006, Newsletter Issue #93: Inpatient Treatment for Cocaine Use

Tip of the Week

Most inpatient treatment lasts about 30 days. During this time, the patient is given individual and group therapy. Therapists also introduce recovery principles and patients engage in activities to promote physical health, which often suffers during an active cocaine addiction.

Effective inpatient drug rehab also supports and enhances motivation toward abstinence, addresses the patient's social skills, and encourages spiritual pursuits and development aimed at foiling relapses.

Among the techniques used in treatment is "contingency management," in which patients earn privileges based on the amount of time they spend drug-free.
