Crack Cocaine Addiction and Treatment

Chapters Capistrano is a premier rehabilitation center for handling addictions of all kinds. The addiction experts at Chapters have created a highly personalized treatment program for individuals addicted to alcohol and drugs. Each case of dependency is unique and requires a specialized approach to ensure success and allow an addict to achieve freedom from drug dependency.

Addiction and Treatment Information

Crack cocaine, usually known as “crack,” is the freebase form of cocaine. The drug is smoked by the user to produce a short, intense high and is considered to be the most addictive form of cocaine. It can affect the user’s brain chemistry in a number of ways and will typically produce a 5 to 10 minute high. The crash experienced after smoking will often cause the addict to use more crack in an effort to maintain the high. As the addict binges on crack, each successive use will result in a reduced high. Addicts have been known to binge for several days while using this drug which can become devastating to the human body.

Effects of Use

Short-term physiological effects of crack cocaine include increased heart rate and blood pressure.  The drug also causes other significant health issues and in some cases can be fatal. Prolonged addiction to crack cocaine will expose the addict to many potential toxins and chemicals, including methylgonidine, toxic adulterants, and various health conditions when the drug is smoked or injected. Addiction to crack can impact every aspect of the abuser’s life, including their relationships with family and friends, their business life as well as their mental and physical well-being.

Detoxification Withdrawal Doesn’t Have To Be Painful

At Chapters, we understand that most people are anxious about the idea of going through withdrawal and this keeps them using the drug. We recognize that withdrawal can be uncomfortable, but it doesn’t have to be and we do everything in out power to make it easy.

Through our luxury rehab program at Chapters, our process engages the most traditional and safe form of withdrawal from using, which is a drug-specific detox. Clients receive mild prescription medication under medical supervision that reduces the risk of seizure and eases withdrawal symptoms. These medications generally are prescribed in tapering amounts until the body is physically stabilized.
