We’re a privately owned, Government approved 90-day drug & alcohol rehabilitation centre based in Geelong (VIC). We have a proven track record of success, with 70% of those who attend our 90-day cocaine rehabilitation program remaining clean & sober.
We strongly recommend relocating from Adelaide to our Geelong clinic for the duration of your cocaine rehab.
If you have a cocaine addiction and you are serious about getting clean and staying clean, you may find it easier to recover in a rehab providing treatment services outside Adelaide. In fact, we strongly recommend that cocaine addicts relocate temporarily (in this case fromAdelaide) to our Geelong clinic for their rehabilitation treatment. We offer pickup & drop off at Melbourne Airport & Melbourne CBD.
Why do I need to go to rehab?
Many cocaine addicts cannot stop using without clinical treatment. Research shows that 40-60% of drug addicts who stop using without professional addiction treatment will relapse in the first 12 months.
Ever felt like everyone else got a manual for living and you missed out?

Three cornerstones for recovery
(1) Initial treatment in a Residential Therapeutic Community, addressing the underlying precursors of your addiction through Psychological Therapies.
And then, (2) Counselling and (3) Education, with you gaining the knowledge and tools required to live a clean and sober life through a 12 Step based personal recovery.
Your recovery programs are based on proven recovery methods and during your stay at one of our facilities, you will:
- Participate in community living with other clients.
- Undergo individual and group counselling sessions.
- Participate in further study to gain understanding of addiction.
- Attend external 12 step meetings regularly.

Rebab didn’t work for me (or my loved one)
Have you been to rehab or perhaps several rehabs for your cocaine or other drug addiction inAdelaide or SA only to end up relapsing back into addiction? This is very common among addicts, so try not to be discouraged. There is hope.
Recovery from a cocaine addiction requires the addicted person to make a commitment to do whatever it takes to get clean and stay clean, one day at a time. This is, however, easier said than done.
Moving away from Adelaide or SA and living in a cocaine treatment rehab for a period of time will help you break the cycle of addiction and get you on the path to a new life free from the shackles of drug/cocaine dependence.
Tell me again, why should I go to rehab in another city?
A rehab service away fromAdelaide or SA provides an escape from the constant reminders. The people, places and routines that can trigger relapses. We are in Geelong (near Melbourne) VIC.
We have found cocaine addiction treatment is significantly more successful when addicts avoid the old environment and focus entirely on recovery and rehabilitation. A cotton wool environment to get back on your feet.
Treating addiction to cocaine (as well as many other drugs) takes time. A period of time in an ice treatment centre will teach you the tools you need to live without drugs.
Am I addicted to cocaine?
Chances are if you have found yourself looking into treatment options for cocaine addiction you have a problem and you know it. Addiction is not being able to stop doing something even when you want to. But, if you are unsure if your drug use has the hallmarks of addiction, here are some questions to help you decide:
- Do you think about cocaine every day?
- Do you use cocaine on a regular basis? (daily, weekly, whenever you can)
- Have you ever lied to family or friends about using cocaine?
- Do you lie about how often you use cocaine?
- Do you become defensive when family and friends show concern about your drug use?
- Do you prioritise using cocaine over spending time with people you love?
- Has your drug use ever affected your work? (sick days, quality of work, professional relationships, job loss)
- Do you feel anxious at the thought of not being able to get cocaine?
- Is your drug use causing problems in your marriage or relationship?
- Do you prioritise buying cocaine over other important financial responsibilities?
- Is your cocaine usage causing financial problems?
- Have you ever stolen to get money to use cocaine?
- Do you decide to stop using cocaine and then find you are unable to actually do it?
- Do you need to use large amounts of cocaine to get the desired effect?
- Have you stopped doing things you used to love because you would rather use cocaine instead?
Cocaine is a highly addictive drug, but it may be hard to know when you or a loved one is addicted. Studies show that 68% of those who seek treatment for cocaine are likely to be polydrug users, meaning they use more than one substance.
Is my loved one addicted to cocaine?
This is an awful question to be asking yourself and we are sorry you find yourself here. Below are some questions to help you determine whether your loved one is addicted to cocaine.
- Is your loved one sensitive or defensive if you mention you are concerned about their cocaine usage?
- Is your loved one neglecting family, friends and responsibilities?
- Has your loved one lost weight?
- Is your loved one in financial trouble?
- Is your loved one moody or showing signs of uncharacteristic anger?
The pattern of addiction
Cocaine is a highly addictive drug. The first time is often incredibly exhilarating. A high so powerful that many cocaine addicts spend years trying unsuccessfully to re-create this first time experience.
Because cocaine and alcohol are often used together in social settings. Alcohol can be a major trigger for someone who is recovering from cocaine addiction. For this reason, it is important to abstain from all drugs in order to enjoy ongoing recovery.
This deceptive power of cocaine
Many people begin by experimenting with cocaine socially and often in environments where other substances are being used. It is common for people with cocaine addiction to be ploy-drug users. This means that in addition to cocaine they are also dependent on other substances, such as alcohol or marijuana. Poly-drug use is especially dangerous, as it increases the user’s risk of fatal overdose.
The cocaine addict chases the euphoria of the initial high while at the same time destroying their life. The cocaine comedown induces a feeling of distress as the brain experiences a shortage of neurotransmitters. This can cause hopelessness, depression, anxiety, fatigue, headaches, muscle pain and more. The only remedy is to have another hit of dopamine, serotonin and noradrenaline. Consume more cocaine. And, so the pattern continues.
Before too long the feelings of euphoria and exhilaration are a thing of the past and the addict is only using cocaine to avoid the comedown and function at a very basic level.

What is rehab like?
90 Days in Clinical Treatment – It is recommended that a person with a cocaine addiction spend a period of 90 days in a rehabilitation clinic. This gives you the best chance to develop new habits and learn the tools for ongoing recovery. You will learn to identify and change the behaviours that lead you to using drugs and the mindsets you need to change to have a healthy and happy life. This is much easier said than done. This is why we hold your hand through the process and help you navigate your way out of cocaine addiction and into a new life.
What if I can’t do a 90 day stay?
We understand that a 90-day rehab program is not always possible and this is why we also offer 60 & 30-day cocaine rehabilitation services. Our shorter programs will set you up with the foundational tools and lifestyle changes needed to break the cycle of addiction. We will also suggest resources and support services you can access after you leave.
