What Is a Crack Cocaine Crash?

Last updated on: Wednesday, 27 September 2023
  • What You'll Learn

A person on crack cocaine usually brags about how good it feels to take that drug. The truth is that the euphoric “high” feeling someone gets is generally quickly followed by a crash. This is why so many users keep taking crack cocaine and never have that “down” feeling or the crash. Crack cocaine damages them physically and psychologically, even bringing them to the brink of, if not literally, killing themselves through the use of crack cocaine.

If a person tries to stop using crack cocaine on his own, it can bring about a crash that can make a person feel delusional and have hallucinations. However, the more a person uses crack cocaine, the more his body builds a tolerance to it. He will have to take more and more crack cocaine until he reaches the point that he either takes it all the time or suffers from a crack cocaine crash. This catch-22 is one of the most awful feelings a person can have. However, a crack-cocaine user sees no way out.

Crack cocaine crashes and crack cocaine addiction are challenging for the person. Still, there are good withdrawal drug programs and helplines to help a person overcome the cycle of abuse with crack cocaine. A person simply cannot go through the withdrawal alone successfully. Counselors and other professionals, as well as a strong support system in the family and a helpline, can help an addict end the nightmare of crack cocaine usage and the crashes that come with it. Even after the person has successfully withdrawn from crack cocaine, the helpline continues to lend support so that a person can fight any residual urges that can occur after such a strong addiction. Start down the road to recovery today by calling the helpline and allowing us to give you the support you need and deserve to get through this.
