Cocaine Addiction Treatment

What is Cocaine Addiction?

Cocaine addiction is one of the most challenging addictions to overcome. Cocaine is a stimulant drug that causes the brain to release a surge of dopamine, which is a brain chemical that is responsible for allowing us to experience pleasure. Average amounts of dopamine are released when someone eats delicious food, enjoys a beautiful sunset, from sex, and many other pleasurable experiences. The difference in the level of dopamine that cocaine causes the brain to release once a person uses it is substantially greater, and this is why cocaine is addictive.

The euphoria that a person experiences from using cocaine and how quickly they will become addicted to it often depends on how it is ingested. Cocaine is a white powdery substance that can be inhaled through a straw into the nose; injected by diluting it with water and using a hypodermic syringe, or it can be smoked, which is called crack cocaine. Snorting cocaine is the most common method, and it takes longer for the drug to reach the person’s brain. Therefore, people who snort cocaine often do not become addicted as quickly as people who inject or smoke cocaine.

Injecting and smoking cocaine, (smoking cocaine is also called crack cocaine), causes a much more intense rush of the drug to enter the brain and bloodstream instantaneously. The high from injecting cocaine or smoking crack only lasts a few minutes. Cocaine addicts who have been using cocaine either by injecting it or smoking it typically become addicted quicker than those who only snort it. However, regardless of how a person uses cocaine, they can become addicted to cocaine after only one use.  

Physical Symptoms & Signs of Cocaine Addiction

The physical symptoms that can be present after a person has used cocaine do vary depending on the method of use. People who snort cocaine are less paranoid than people who inject or smoke crack cocaine. However, the following physical symptoms generally describe anyone who has recently used cocaine:

The signs that someone has become addicted to cocaine usually begins with a change in their personality and their level of responsibility and communication with people they are close too.

Cocaine is a toxic drug that can cause severe medical conditions, and anyone who has used cocaine long term is likely to have several health issues that need medical care.

Cocaine addiction generally does not cause severe physical withdrawal symptoms but does cause withdrawal symptoms that can be dangerous, and they include:
