Because cocaine dependence affects each addict differently, Chapters’ specialized method sets up an addict for success and independence from drug reliance.

General Information

A crystalline tropane alkaloid, cocaine is created from the coca plant. While the drug stimulates the body’s central nervous system to amplify awareness and sense of ecstasy, it consequently disrupts many aspects of a person’s life. The only legal use of cocaine is for government-administered medicine needs, and so acquiring any form of cocaine is a grave offense. Still, the sale of cocaine is skyrocketing in the United States, aided by an intricate underground network, making the drug America’s second most widely used illegal recreational drug.

Effects of Cocaine Abuse

Used orally, by insufflation (commonly known as snorting or sniffing), injection, to name a few, cocaine in any form can be fatal. Not only does cocaine addiction destroy an addict’s body—most notably the cardiovascular system and brain—but emotional side-effects are just as prominent and alarming. These include paranoia, psychosis, panic attacks, mood swings, and dramatic changes in a person’s behavior and personality.
