Cocaine abuse is responsible for one in ten of all people who enroll in rehabilitation center programs.
At Cirque Lodge, we recommend a residential stay for cocaine addiction for a few key reasons. Cocaine abuse is life-threatening, and its harmful effects grow with every use. When users attempt to withdraw on their own, symptoms and contextual triggers often drive them to repeatedly return to the drug.
We believe that the best and most effective method of addiction treatment for this stimulant removes a recovering user from triggers during the critical time of healing. Unsupported cocaine withdrawal can bring with it extreme dysphoria, especially in clients with co-occurring disorders like anxiety or depression. Supervision, 24-hour access to counselors, and an enriching community of people on similar journeys can protect and comfort our residents and make all the difference during this period of recovery.
Long-term or heavy use of cocaine causes changes in neural chemistry that lead to dependency.
When the body starts to detox and cocaine leaves the system, it leaves the brain in a massive dopamine deficit. Unsupported cocaine withdrawal causes uncomfortable and sometimes dangerous symptoms. Everyone’s journey to recovery is different, and symptoms vary in severity.
Common mild symptoms include:
Moderate to severe symptoms include:
Cocaine Detox Program – Our Holistic Approach
At Cirque Lodge, we take a holistic approach to our residential treatment for cocaine addiction. We believe that drug addiction is often a complex condition involving physical, emotional, and psychosocial factors. An intricate condition demands a complex set of interventions and therapies to address it effectively.
Once you arrive, our rehab programs start with physical detox. We assess your cocaine withdrawal symptoms and alleviate them when possible. After completing detox, you move on to rehabilitation, where the core of our treatment lies in an involved, abstinence-only, 12-Step program. This spiritual program will give you the skills you need to combat impulses to relapse once you graduate from Cirque Lodge.
Clients in residence benefit from space to breathe and grow insight and control over cocaine addiction far from any triggers. Education on the nature and science of addiction is another aspect of inpatient treatment.
We offer workshops on the chemistry of cocaine addiction and how to combat cravings. However, cocaine addiction is also a mental condition, and emotional processes govern the ways of recovery and relapse. With this in mind, we offer various kinds of group and individual therapy to uncover the mechanisms behind your addiction and teach various tools and techniques to support your recovery and help prevent relapse.
When you choose an inpatient rehabilitation option for cocaine addiction, you work with a team of psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, and coaches that are here to support you 24-7.
Our team of addiction specialists understands cocaine addiction and knows the emotional depths you go to on the path to recovery. We are always here to lend an ear during the challenging moments of detox and rehabilitation.
We prioritize providing effective and long-lasting care, which means we work to support every facet of our client’s mental health. Guided group therapy, 1-on-1 drug counseling, and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy all play a part in a holistic psychosocial support program.
The medical staff at Cirque Lodge also prescribe medications when necessary, and our residential environment allows us to best track side effects and other addictive behaviors when we do this. Our priority is helping our clients manage addiction, and we take every measure to support that cause.
Many Cirque Lodge clients have high-pressure jobs with long hours and huge expectations.
Unfortunately, people often feel that cocaine gives them the edge needed to thrive in fast-paced environments such as investment banking or showbusiness. Additionally, cocaine use is normalized in many of these work cultures.
Coming to Cirque Lodge gives you a chance to make a fresh start, away from the pressures of everyday life and triggers that you associate with drug use. Spending time away from the situations where we use cocaine gives our brains time to re-wire, create new neural pathways, and ultimately find new sources of joy.
A report compiled by SAMHSA illustrates that in 2019:
Cocaine addiction may be driven by some level of self-medication in users with mood conditions like anxiety, depression, and ADHD. However, the same chemistry that lifts your mood when cocaine is in your brain depresses it once it is out.
Untreated mood challenges will synergize with withdrawal symptoms and produce deep lows that are hard to handle without specialized support. If you suspect that you or your loved one may have a co-occurring disorder, it may make cocaine use harder to quit alone.
At Cirque Lodge, we diagnose these conditions during our first assessments. Dual diagnosis allows us to better treat the more complex aspects of each client’s journey to recovery. It helps us provide specialized, appropriate care through the withdrawal process and individual counseling and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy sessions.
If you suspect that a co-occurring condition is sabotaging your road to sobriety, Cirque Lodge’s residential treatment plan can help you. A dual diagnosis will help you understand your mental health needs better in the years to come.
When you choose a residential treatment plan, you’re also choosing a community.
We design most of our treatment plans to involve structured group therapy. There is value in processing the underlying concerns of substance abuse together as a network of people on related journeys.
Healing is often a challenging experience, but when our residents share and communicate their goals, commitments, and worries, it builds a culture of strength among the people who come here.
Withdrawal is isolating alone, but residents on our campus find strength in numbers and the camaraderie that comes from realizing that they are in this together. This feeling of unity and accountability lives on after graduation in the form of our alumni events and continuing care groups.
Cirque Lodge is situated in the magnificent Rocky Mountains in Sundance, Utah.
The mountains of this area have long been places to retreat to and heal. When you come to our center, you are entering a private and exclusive location of natural beauty.
We make use of the natural landscape of this region in our outdoor programming. Workshops and process groups are as likely to occur in a mountain meadow as they are in our serene campus. Residential treatment at Cirque Lodge also highlights the role of experiential therapy to internalize the lessons of recovery. Options we offer include:

Coming to a private and serene location means you can focus on the treatment you receive without being bombarded with reminders of the addiction you are leaving behind.
Cirque Lodge is a high-end facility for medical treatment, but it is also a haven. When residents arrive, they are able to escape from the situational stressors and triggers that sabotage the early days of cocaine recovery. You return home with a honed set of tools to face life again.
