Crack Addiction Treatment

Drug Treatment Center for Young Men

The use of crack cocaine can quickly turn from recreational use to dependency. Since it’s cheaper than powdered cocaine and produces a more intense high, crack is well-liked among drug users and often leads to a powerful addiction.

Drug addiction can not only be detrimental to your health, but it can also cause you to lose your employment, close relationships with friends and family and your overall self-worth. While a heightened sense of awareness and extreme euphoria may feel great in the moment, crack can grab hold of your life in ways you never thought possible. But why is crack so much more addicting than its sister drug, cocaine?

The Difference in Form

Crack is chemically very similar to cocaine, as both are derived from the same coca plant and made into tiny crystals. With crack, though, the process includes an additional step where the crystals are boiled down and combined with sodium bicarbonate. This extra purification may seem minimal, but it has a huge impact on how it interacts within your body.

Because crack is in rock form, users generally inhale the vapors instead of snorting the drug, allowing them to reach maximum levels in less than a minute. Crack tends to be a preferred drug choice with its more intense rush and cheaper street price than cocaine, but unfortunately crack users are also at a much greater risk of overdose and addiction.

The effects of crack can vary from person to person, but they typically include intense feelings of euphoria and an increased heart rate. When you come down from the high though, you may experience extreme mood changes, bouts of anxiety or depression, insomnia, paranoia and even hallucinations.

Treating Your Drug Addiction

Admitting you are dependent on a drug is not easy, but when crack begins to take over every aspect of your life, it’s time to seek professional help. Deciding to kick your drug addiction is a brave, yet scary first step, and because the detox symptoms can be strong, it’s important to heal and recover in a long-term facility like Blueprints for Recovery.
