Crack Cocaine Addiction and Treatment
At Chapters Capistrano, a leading drug and alcohol rehab center, we care for clients with crack cocaine addiction. Our personalized treatment programs are catered to each addict because we recognize crack cocaine addition affects each individual differently.
Often referred to as “crack,” crack cocaine is smoked to trigger a short-lived high that lasts 5 to 10 minutes. This intense high has made the drug the most addictive form of cocaine. The crash experienced after smoking crack cocaine will often cause someone to go on a several day binge. As the addict tries to reproduce the initial high, the intensity actually reduces after each use.
Effects of Crack Cocaine Use
Increased heart rate and blood pressure are two of the short-term physiological effects of crack cocaine. Potential toxins and chemicals inhaled when crack is smoked will damage the addict’s body. It is important for an addict to realize relationships with family and friends will suffer, as well as the person’s professional life and physical and mental health.
Crack Cocaine Detoxification Withdrawal Doesn’t Have to be Painful
