What is Crack Cocaine?
Crack cocaine is a concentrated form of pure cocaine derived from powdered cocaine. Its formation is by dissolving powder cocaine in a solution of water and sodium bicarbonate. The solution is boiled and the cocaine solidifies into ‘rocks’, which are then dried and crushed for sale. According to the DEA, crack cocaine crystals contain 75-90% pure cocaine.
The crystals are smoked producing an instant high as the drug reaches the brain fast and in high doses. However, the high is short-lived lasting about 5-10 minutes, which results in regular use and high rates of addiction. Crack is said to be the most addictive form of cocaine.
Effects of Crack Cocaine
Crack cocaine addicts experience extreme behavioral changes, often erratic, violent and paranoid behavior. Users risk respiratory failure, heart failure, convulsions, hallucinations, and strokes. Over time, crack cocaine addicts are unable to honor their family obligations or hold down jobs due to increasing dependency on the drug and behavior. The habit can bankrupt the addict as it is expensive.
At United Recovery Project, we are sensitive to the causes of addiction to crack cocaine and its physical consequences for short-term and long-term use. Our compassionate members of staff work with each addict to create a custom treatment program to offer you the best opportunity for success.
Phases of Withdrawal
Crack has serious effects on the body and the mind. When used for a long time, it causes permanent psychological damage and can even kill the user. One of the initial steps in breaking addiction to crack cocaine is addressing the physical dependency.
It is extremely difficult to go cold turkey from crack. The withdrawal symptoms are extremely uncomfortable and many addicts give in to temptation to start using again if not properly monitored
Acute withdrawal symptoms last for several days while some more long-term effects take months or years to process. Detoxification provides treatment for acute withdrawal symptoms, while rehabilitation addresses the long-term effects.
