Here we add only the basics of what you need to know about Cocaine Addiction Treatment. Cocaine can be snorted or inhaled through the nose. It enters the bloodstream via the nasal tissues. Injected – where it is released directly into the bloodstream or directly under the skin.Smoking – cocaine is inhaled as vapor or smoke into the lungs, where it rapidly enters the bloodstream.Then there is Crack Cocaine. Crack is the street name for a type of cocaine that has had the hydrochloride removed, making it possible to smoke.When the mixture is heated it makes a crackling sound, hence the name. It is processed with baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) or ammonia and water, and heated to remove the hydrochloride. The crack smoker receives large doses of cocaine – the effect is virtually immediate, as with injected cocaine. The extremely intense feelings derived from smoking crack are short-lived.
Because cocaine works on the brain very quickly, its effects are far more pronounced, almost instantly, than many other illicit substances. There are both long-term and short-term effects to the abuse of cocaine. Oftentimes people struggle with these for long periods without cocaine treatments.
Cocaine is a powerful central nervous system stimulant that’s often associated with addictions. When families see signs of addiction, they need to communicate with treatment programs and arrange for enrollment. Some programs provide around-the-clock inpatient care, others provide outpatient care, and some provide a mix of the two formats. There are no hard-and-fast rules about which setting is best. Since cocaine cravings can be persistent, families should look for treatment programs that provide ongoing and comprehensive relapse prevention support.
Even though it is often portrayed as a ‘party drug’ and not as addictive as many other substances, there is a reason that people enlist the help of a cocaine treatment center to be able to recover. A few of the long-term effects that users struggle with include heart arrhythmia, headaches, ulcers, nausea and abdominal pain. Long-term cocaine use can also damage the kidneys. As with the short-term effects, the way that people use the drug can influence the effects. Snorting the substance can lead to irritation of the nasal septum, nosebleeds and hoarseness; while injections can lead to puncture marks, allergic reactions and collapsed veins.
Overdosing on cocaine can lead to seizures, and life-threatening heart failure, cerebral hemorrhage, stroke and respiratory failure – even regular usage without overdosing raises the risk of detrimental health consequences (see paragraph below).There is no specific medication for cocaine overdose. Some studies have shown that those who inject or smoke cocaine have a greater risk of complications than individuals who snort it. Smokers will typically become compulsive cocaine users more rapidly than those who snort it.
Smoking cocaine increases the risk of developing respiratory problems, such as shortness of breath, coughing, and lung trauma (including bleeding).
Whichever way you look at it. Cocaine has a vice grip on unsuspecting people. By unsuspecting we mean, they just don’t get that when the world, all its doctors and addiction treatment specialists, psychiatrist, teachers and parents say “DON’T USE DRUGS”…they don’t listen. But when a ‘friend’ says look at me I’m okay, have a snort…the road to a prison, an institution, intervention, death, court or drug rehab becomes almost inevitable. Especially with longer term use.
