Crack Rehab FAQ

What is Crack Rehab?

Crack rehab is a drug addiction treatment facility equipped to handle the specific needs of those who are struggling with an addiction to crack. A drug formulated from cocaine, crack creates unique effects in the person who uses it, both in the short-term and the long-term. A crack rehab should employ Master’s level medical and psychological personnel and counselors who specialize in substance abuse treatment and are familiar with the drug and its effects on the woman using it.

What are the Characteristics of an Effective Crack Rehab?

An effective crack rehab should offer a number of therapeutic treatment options that include both well researched and steadfast options as well as cutting edge, alternative treatments. Traditional treatments like 12-steps will likely be a part of any effective crack rehab since the group meetings can be continued long after treatment ends. However, everyone is a different and certain alternative therapies may just what you need to have a breakthrough in treatment—equine-assisted therapy, art therapy, dramatic interpretation, ropes and adventure therapy—but you won’t know what will work for you unless you try it, which is why any effective crack rehab will have a variety of therapies to choose from.

Is Crack Rehab Necessary?

Absolutely. Crack cocaine addiction is a medical disease and, though there is no cure, it is important that you undergo a thorough treatment at a crack rehab facility in order to have any real shot at fighting it. Because it is a chronic condition, all who suffer from drug addiction are prone to relapse, but with an effective crack rehab treatment, you have a far better chance of keeping your relapses short, few and far between. Only at crack rehab will you learn the tools you need to fight off temptation and handle situations differently, situations in which you once picked up a pipe.

How Do I Know if I Need Crack Rehab?

If you are addicted to crack cocaine, you need crack rehab in order to break that addiction and begin a life without drug addiction. How do you know if you’re dependent upon crack? You can tell by a number of symptoms and signs:

  • You routinely choose getting high over the needs of others, responsibilities, and commitments
  • You choose activities and friendships based on their acceptance of your habit
  • You have financial problems and/or legal problems due to your drug use
  • You are often ill, depressed or agitated due to your drug use
