Cocaine Addiction Hotlines & Text Helpline

Cocaine addiction hotlines can be a valuable resource for those struggling with cocaine misuse or addiction. Whether you’re looking for addiction information, advice on finding addiction treatment, or in need of emotional support, you can get the help you need when you call. Although hotlines vary depending on the organization providing the service, most substance abuse hotlines are free, confidential, and available 24/7.

What Is Cocaine Addiction?

Made from the leaves of the coca plant found in South America, cocaine is a fine, white, crystal powder that can be snorted through the nose, rubbed into gums, or dissolved and injected into the bloodstream.1

Cocaine is an incredibly addictive stimulant drug that increases dopamine levels in the brain.1 Cocaine prevents normal dopamine levels from being released and recycled into the cell it came from, which causes a flood of dopamine in the brain. This can lead to the person wanting more of the drug.1 Over time, a person may need more of the drug to experience the same pleasurable feelings.1

What Type of Help Can a Cocaine Hotline Provide?

Cocaine abuse hotlines offer free and confidential advice and support to individuals struggling with cocaine addiction and their loved ones.

When you call a cocaine hotline, you can ask questions, request local resources, and inquire about rehab centers that offer cocaine addiction treatment. Many hotlines staff specially trained addiction specialists who can also lend an ear if you need a safe space to talk about your concerns. Topics you can talk about when you call a cocaine helpline may include:

  • Cocaine addiction information, including signs and symptoms.
  • Physical and mental health effects of cocaine misuse and addiction.
  • Local support groups for individuals struggling with cocaine addiction (and their families).
  • Treatment options, including inpatient treatment and outpatient treatment for addiction.
  • What to expect from treatment.
  • How to pay for treatment (e.g., health insurance, financing, scholarships).

How a Cocaine Hotline Works

Cocaine hotlines are typically free to call, and many are open 24/7. When you call a cocaine addiction hotline, you will not be asked to share personal information (unless you wish to). Calls are confidential and you can remain anonymous.

You can be open and honest when you ask your questions and share your concerns. Hotlines staff trained professionals who will not judge you for your struggles. Hotline professionals are prepared to provide you with accurate information regarding cocaine use, addiction, treatment, local resources, and advice on how to cope with your struggles.

What Should I Do Next?

After you call a cocaine hotline, you may be wondering what to do next. If you’re calling a hotline, you may need help beyond just talking to someone on the phone. Calling a hotline is courageous and can be a good first step to recovery.

Addiction is a treatable condition and there are evidence-based treatments that can help people successfully manage their addiction, including behavioral therapies such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), contingency management (CM), and therapeutic communities (TC).2 The right treatment for you will depend on several factors (e.g., how much cocaine you use and for how long) and what your doctor deems medically necessary.

If you’re considering treatment, you can use our rehab directory to explore top-rated rehab programs near you or out of state. You can also contact American Addiction Centers (AAC) at to learn more about treatment options at an AAC facility.

Does My Insurance Cover Treatment?

If you have a health insurance plan, your insurance should cover some, if not all, of the cost of treatment. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) mandates all health insurance companies to provide coverage for the treatment of substance use disorder (SUD) and mental health conditions.3

The exact amount of coverage provided by your insurance depends on your specific health plan. Call the number on the back of your insurance card to ask about your plan’s treatment coverage, or log in to the member portal on your insurance provider’s website and read through your summary of benefits.

It’s always recommended to verify your insurance before you commit to a program. You can do so by contacting your insurance provider, contacting the treatment center you’re considering, or filling out the short form below.
