Cocaine abuse is a complicated and often incapacitating illness that can leave you feeling devastated from the effects. You may have lost your social support network, have serious financial problems due to the cost of your habit, and are unable to function normally in your regular day to day activities. Many people struggling with cocaine related problems are hesitant to seek treatment due to the stigma associated with using the drug, and the fear that upon learning that they are using cocaine, others will view them differently, as someone lacking morals or the strength to choose not to use the drug any longer. Perhaps you’ve tried to get your problem under control yourself after accepting others’ belief that you simply have to make the right choices. Perhaps you’ve even attempted to stop using the drug, but were unsuccessful. Often people who have found the courage to try to stop, but weren’t successful, come to believe they are a failure, not just in their inability to stop using cocaine, but in every aspect of their life. At the same time they may resist the idea of seeking inpatient help since this will be hard to hide from others, who they might believe will associate inpatient care with permanent weaknesses, flaws, or defects.
At Park Royal we are here to tell you that we know just how tough the fight against a cocaine addiction can be. Cocaine is a substance that can alter your brain functioning, which causes cocaine to become paired directly with your ability to experience pleasure. While an appropriate detox process can successfully rid you of your physical dependence and prevent physical withdrawal symptoms, we know that it is the psychological addiction that is far more difficult. This may come in the form of the belief that you can’t interact normally with others or function up to expectations at work without using cocaine. We will provide you with not only the safest and most appropriate detox procedure for your addiction, but also the support to be able to start working through the psychological addiction.
Why Seek Treatment at Park Royal?
Park Royal Hospital is a private, psychiatric hospital that provides life-altering treatment for adults and mature adults who have difficulty coping with life’s trials and tribulations. Short term inpatient treatment is provided for anxiety disorders, mood disorders, memory problems, post-traumatic stress disorders, trauma, substance abuse treatment, and co-occurring mental health issues.
At Park Royal, we provide a complete range of treatment options consisting of detox, inpatient, and several intensive outpatient programs including a co-occurring treatment unit. Our establishment is proud to offer services that focus on the complete person, and each individual’s specific psychiatric, emotional, and medical needs. Our trained counselors are available to speak with you by phone to assess your needs and determine the most appropriate level of care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. You can also make an appointment for a free evaluation if you are at least 18 years of age no matter what your behavioral, mental health, or substance abuse need may be.
Our Philosophy and Benefits
At Park Royal we are strongly committed to providing a continuum of care for individuals in our community. It is not our intention to replicate existing services, but to create the best programs possible that complement the existing services in the area. As we are also aware of the high rate of co-occurring disorders that exist with any problem we treat, we are committed to ensuring our staff is trained in the most up to date interventions for both individual disorders as well as co-occurring disorders. We know that sometimes individuals aren’t aware that other problems exist, since their main presenting condition is so distressing it hides these other symptoms. We believe in a continuous evaluation process that occurs throughout your stay here, so that we can recognize new or additional symptoms that appear.
We also know how difficult it is for someone to ask for help for any type of psychological or substance abuse disorder, especially when contemplating entering an inpatient facility. We view every individual who comes to us for help based on their strengths, the first of which is their courage in committing to treatment in an effort to take back control of their lives. We will ensure that when the time comes for you to leave inpatient care, there will be a treatment plan in place that you are comfortable with and that will help you continue on the path to healing and the life you wish to lead.
Treatment at Park Royal
Our detox and inpatient services are intended primarily for stabilization. Yet we believe that even when working through an acute crisis related to a disorder or major life problem, you can participate in other therapeutic options that will give you a head start when you transition to the next step on your path to recovery. Some of the therapeutic options we offer for you to participate in while in our inpatient unit include:
Detox – We offer the safest and most stress free detox services available. We recognize the importance of paying attention to not only physical withdrawal, but psychological withdrawal symptoms as well. We understand the fears you feel as you face life without the substance you have come to rely upon and will help you develop alternate skills and coping strategies to replace the functions the substance served for you.
Group Therapy – Group therapy is one of the most effective forms of intervention for substance abuse treatment. It provides positive support from others who share your struggles and alleviates the sense of isolation many individuals with substance abuse problems experience prior to arriving at our program. We offer groups that focus on skill-based approaches to handling problems, along with educational information on topics of common interest to the group. We also offer process-oriented groups where you can discuss difficult issues with others who understand what you’re going through and can supply feedback and advice from a first-hand perspective.
Individual Work – We understand that there are times you want to discuss something important to you one-on-one with a counselor without sharing it in front of a group. We provide the opportunity to speak with staff as needed to help you deal with personal issues and move forward in your groups.
Family Visitation – We know how important family can be to your continued commitment to therapy, and in providing support for you during treatment and afterwards. However, sometimes due to reactions and misperceptions of your difficulties or problems that may have existed in the family prior to your substance abuse problem, certain issues may stand in the way of all of the family members being capable of joining together to support one another. Family members are encouraged to visit on weekends and our staff makes themselves as available as possible to ensure that your family is offered enough opportunity to interact with our health care professionals while learning about your disorder and exchanging experiences and reactions related to the problem at hand.
Discharge Planning – We understand how difficult it was for you to take that first step in deciding to seek treatment and work through detox and the initial stage of getting your acute problems under control. Once you have reached this goal, it is normal to feel apprehensive over discharge and transitioning to a different type of program. We work together with you as soon into your stay with us as possible to explore what you feel would fit your needs and personality the best. We will present potential options that your team believes are programs where you can succeed the most. Before you leave, you will either already be enrolled in one of our other treatment programs or have a referral to another program that has been determined to better meet your needs.
We also provide a number of additional programs to help with your recovery. Some of these may include:
- Physical therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Leisure and recreation
- A.A. and N.A.
Continuing Care – What Comes Next?
As continuity of care is one of our primary goals, we have a number of intensive outpatient programs that may fit your needs and help you continue your progress working towards a life you feel hopeful about after you leave our inpatient program. Some of these options include:
Co-occurring Disorders Program – This intensive outpatient program is intended for those experiencing a psychological disorder in addition to a substance abuse disorder. Those in the programs are provided with opportunities to actively engage in a number of dynamic groups throughout the day.
Our Intensive Adult Outpatient Program is intended for individuals who are transitioning from an inpatient stay to a less intensive setting, although individuals are not required to have completed an inpatient program to be admitted. This program includes peer support, group therapy, education, and skill building approaches.
No matter what your needs may be, Park Royal is committed to getting to know you as a complete person. If you have decided to seek treatment, Park Royal can provide you with the opportunity to begin changing your life for the better.
