In brief: Counselling and meds

Cocaine is one of the most highly addictive and highly abused substances.
Effective treatment requires that addiction be recognized and treatment of symptoms once use is discontinued. Symptoms can include sleepiness, agitation, anxiety, vivid unpleasant dreams. Some of these can be managed using medications like Modafinil (provigil).
