Lots of people find na (like aa) helpful, and there’s also a ca specifically for cocaine users. Here they are, online…cocaine anonymous online
Best of luck.
When I first tried coke I loved the feeling of it and kept on using it on daily doses. But basically I just gave it up cause it costed too much and it was hard to find good coke.
addiction, pattern of use? are they using every day?
first get them to understand the effects cocaine has on the brain, serotonin and adrenelin, next look at the pattern of use in relation to cravings and triggers, do they score on patday after drinking etc, start breaking things down by looking at the minutia of their use, the more understanding people get of their habit the betterthey are at managing/stopping it.
are they taking it safely? Ie not sharing a tooter? are they smoking it? when do they not use? who do they use with? what strategies can they use to avoid risky situations? I will get back to this one once I have some info downloaded from work to my home pc.
