Crack Cocaine Addiction, Treatment And Detox in Newfoundland

With all the work and effort put into drug awareness and education, cocaine and crack cocaine are still a major problem. This is true no matter the community or city that you may happen to visit. There are drug treatment centers in Newfoundland to help people with crack cocaine addiction but sadly enough, there aren't enough spots available. Newfoundland has the same problem. There are treatment centers available but still far less than needed compared to the number of drug addicts.

Crack cocaine is derived from the powdered form of cocaine. The powder is dissolved in a solution of sodium bicarbonate and water, boiled down until the solid separates. This solid is allowed to dry and then cut into rocks weighing between a tenth to one half of a gram.

These rocks are then set in a glass pipe fitted with fine mesh screens inside the bowl to support the rocks. The pipe is then heated, usually underneath with a lighter, the heat causing the rock to vaporize. That vapor is smoked through the pipe. Crack can also, in its rock form, be crushed and sprinkled into marijuana cigarettes. These are called primos.

There are drug rehab treatment centers in Newfoundland for this addiction, mainly in St Johns. Someone with crack cocaine addiction can be helped through treatment and detox centers in their city or other provinces if there are not enough beds available where they are located.
