Cocaine Addiction is Still Around

Cocaine continues to create havoc in people’s lives.

image of girl preparing for iv drug useAddiction and overdose death from prescription pain medications is often publicized in the media, but cocaine use continues to be common.

Cocaine is a white powder that can be injected, or snorted.  It can also be made into crack, which is a rock or crystal that is smoked.  Cocaine use in any form is illegal.

A stimulant, cocaine causes a brief high making the user feel more energetic, talkative, and alert, but those feelings may be followed by irritability, restlessness and even panic.  Emotional changes occur and users may feel anxious, angry, and paranoid.

Using cocaine repeatedly creates changes in the circuitry of the brain causing users to lose interest in other areas of life, while repeatedly seeking the brief pleasure provided by cocaine.

Eventually, this leads to addiction.

Cocaine use can be deadly.  Even the first time use of cocaine can result in death.  Seizures, strokes, heart attacks, and comas can happen after using cocaine.  Hepatitis, HIV, and other diseases can occur when users share needles. Users will often drink alcohol while using cocaine, which magnifies the effects.  This combination creates a metabolite called cocaethylene which is far more toxic than cocaine alone.

Signs that someone might be using cocaine include dilated pupils, inability to sleep, higher than normal energy or restlessness, weight loss, runny nose or frequent nose bleeds, hoarseness, or changes in behavior such as paranoia, violence, anxiety, panic attacks, or depression.

Cocaine addiction can be treated. Professional substance abuse treatment can help someone stop using cocaine. Recovery is possible.

If you or someone you know is addicted to cocaine, Gulf Breeze Recovery can help.
