Cocaine Addiction

“Addiction is just a way of trying to get at something else. Something bigger. Call it transcendence if you want, but it is a rat in a maze. We all want the same thing. We all have this hole. The thing you want offers relief, but it’s a trap.” – Tess Callahan

What Is Cocaine?

Cocaine is a powerfully addictive stimulant drug made from the coca plant leaves native to South America. As a street drug, cocaine looks like a fine, white crystal powder. Street dealers often mix it with things like cornstarch, talcum powder, or flour to increase profits. They may also combine it with other stimulant amphetamine or synthetic opioids, including fentanyl. Adding synthetic opioids to cocaine is especially risky when people using cocaine do not realize it contains this dangerous additive. Increasing numbers of overdose deaths among cocaine users might be related to this tampered cocaine.” – The National Institute on Drug Abuse.

What are the effects of cocaine?

Regular cocaine use can quickly lead to significant physical and psychological harm. Cocaine releases dopamine which causes a sense of pleasure and euphoria in the brain.

Cocaine is not just an addictive drug, but it can also turn into a deadly one. Individuals who abuse cocaine and do not seek cocaine addiction treatment put their lives at risk.

The longer that people abuse cocaine, the easier it becomes for them to overdose on it. Since cocaine is a stimulant, it is common for people to have heart attacks and strokes after long periods of use.
