  • What is cocaine?

    Cocaine is a strong neuro stimulant drug that is most commonly used in powder form. Primarily, the drug is snorted, injected, or smoked (crack cocaine). Recreational cocaine use is common and can affect a person’s perception of reality and creates feelings of intense alertness and euphoria. The drug is highly addictive as crack cocaine.

  • Why is cocaine addictive?

    Cocaine is addictive because it affects neurotransmitters within the brain. The drug increases the level of naturally occurring dopamine. Eventually, it replaces it with unnatural dopamine, leading to dependence and addiction. The intense euphoric effects reinforce the drug-seeking behavior, driving the person to use the drug again.

  • How do you tell if someone is using cocaine?

    Cocaine abuse is not difficult to spot, as the drug creates dilated pupils, causes a person to speak quickly, become anxious, paranoid, sweat, runny nose, and constantly sniffing and snorting. Drug paraphernalia is also an indicator. Like any other addiction, there are physical and behavioral symptoms.

  • How do you treat cocaine addiction?

    The rehabilitation process for cocaine addiction begins with detox to manage withdrawal symptoms. The withdrawal symptoms are not severe and only last a day or two. Following detox, the next phase of treatment should involve residential drug rehab. Long-term treatment is a better option, but short-term drug rehab and outpatient treatment are also effective. In addition, it is important to follow through with aftercare support.

  • Why is cocaine a common recreational drug?

    Cocaine is a common recreational drug because of its easy access and the stimulating effects the drug creates. Unfortunately, cocaine today is commonly laced with fentanyl, increasing the risk of overdose. Cocaine is also easy to conceal and is used by individuals from all walks of life.
