Addiction to Crack Cocaine

by De'Meko, June 12, 2013

Crack Cocaine Addiction and Treatment

The crack cocaine addiction recovery program at Chapters Capistrano is dedicated to treating addicts with personalized treatment programs. We understand that because no addict is affected the same, no program should be the same.

General Information

When smoked, crack cocaine triggers an intense high only between 5 to 10 minutes in length. Because the crash afterward leads most addicts to binge and repeatedly use to try to recreate that euphoric high, crack cocaine has been dubbed the most addictive form of cocaine. After each high, the intensity of the high decreases. Some common street names for crack cocaine include Snow Coke, Rocks, Black Rock, Candy, Nuggets, Hard Rock, Sleet, Tornado.

Effects of Crack Cocaine Use

The use of crack cocaine can cause increased blood pressure and heart rate, as well as exposure to toxins and chemicals. These psychological effects are coupled with the emotional damage to an addict’s relationships with family and friends and professional life.

Crack Cocaine Detoxification Withdrawal Doesn’t Have to be Painful

The drug and alcohol rehab center at Chapters Capistrano wants to guide addicts towards sober living and a drug-free lifestyle. Our medical experts administer a drug-specific detox that will help risk of seizure and lessen symptoms during withdrawal.

Call Chapters Capistrano 24-hour helpline at 949-371-4198 today to start your crack cocaine rehab program.
