Crack Cocaine Creates Urgent Need for Cocaine Addiction Rehab
All drugs that are addictive have the potential to create destructive consequences and can result in accidents, severe health effects and sometimes even death. But crack cocaine use actually has been associated with more frequent and severe symptoms than cocaine use itself. In a study at the Medical University of South Carolina, doctors found that paranoia occurs in minimally two-thirds of crack users; 55% of them are involved in some type of violent acts, and in some places 31% of homicide victims had been killed by users of crack. It was also found that in 20 percent of suicides, crack cocaine was present.
One problem that crack users have is that a tolerance to the drug is quickly acquired, which means one will have to chase the euphoric high by using more and more of the drug, and taking it more often. There is also higher risk of getting severe mental disturbances that are associated with crack.
It becomes hard to see how one could live without the drug so the addict will go to extreme lengths to obtain more and more of the drug, sometimes turning to illegal activities just to get more "rocks."
However, rehab and recovery is possible with crack cocaine as with any other drug, since the basic damage done by an addict is consistent with most other drugs. The addict will often tell lies to loved ones; he'll eventually lose the ability to live honestly around others, and will begin to believe he can feel good only when he is high.
The loss of self-respect and one's personal integrity follows the acts one usually has to commit to keep getting more drugs. And, the world is perceived differently by someone on drugs; they don't see it clearly, but through a sort of dim fog because of the residual effects of continued drug use. This must be handled if one is going to recover from long term drug abuse.
Some programs actually try to aid recovering addicts by prescribing other drugs. Unfortunately, this approach will not help the person recover fully from addiction, but simply leaves them with an addiction to a different substance.
