Crack Addiction Treatment

Our Crack Addiction Treatment Action Plan

Crack came to popularity in the 1980s. Unlike it’s sister, cocaine, crack is cheap and easy to come by while providing the same euphoric feeling of cocaine. Yet it is one of the most addictive drugs on the streets. A recent survey of Americans aged 12 and over showed that at least six million have tried crack once. Crack does not discriminate, the rich and poor both abuse crack. Individuals with crack addiction will do anything to get more of the drug, even if it means hurting loved ones.

Many people may use the words crack and cocaine interchangeably, but there is a difference. While it’s true that crack is made from cocaine, it is cooked with sodium bicarbonate or ammonia. This creates rocks which can be smoked. Because crack is smoked instead of sniffed, the effects hit quicker and with more intensity. However, with crack the effects wear off quicker and the user needs another hit sooner.

Because of the common ingredients needed to make crack, it is easy for someone to produce and sell crack out of their own home. This is why crack is one of the most popular street drugs, it is cheap, easy to find and purchase. It is easy to start a crack addiction.

Crack addiction starts quickly, often after just two hits. After the high ends, the body quickly begins to show withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms include; extreme fatigue, depression, anxiety, angry outburst, nausea, vomiting, muscle pain, shaking, irritability, lack of motivation, sleep disruption and the intense craving for more crack.

The user then feels that he or she must take in more crack to feel “normal” again.

The drug completely takes over the user’s mental state forcing them to believe that they must use more crack. This mental state takes precedence over all other feelings and starts the vicious addiction cycle. The user has no regard for their life, just only wants more crack. It does not matter to the user what he has to do or who he may hurt in the process, he is mentally addicted to getting his next fix from crack.

Long term use of crack can lead to numerous health problems. Such problems are chronic sore throat, shortness of breath, weight loss, increased blood pressure, increased heart rate, sweating, rise in sugar levels, burning of the lips and tongue, dilated pupils and digestive problems. Lung cancer, heart attacks and strokes are very common with long term crack users.

Using crack for a long periods affects the mental state too. Users feel paranoia, fear of death and suppressed desire to do daily activities.

Overdose of crack is perhaps the most dangerous aspect of this street drug. Unlike other drugs, there is no way of knowing how much is in each rock that they smoke. Each time a user smokes crack, he plays a game of Russian Roulette. If it is too much, the heart could fail causing death.

Many of these problems can be avoided and possibly reversed with crack addiction treatment.

Crack Addiction Recovery

Starting crack addiction recovery can be hard, yet incredibly rewarding. Unlike other drugs, there is no substitute that a patient can receive to ease the pain of ending drug usage. The first step is detox. The patient will be under medical care around the clock as their body detoxes the drug and repairs itself. This usually takes several days as the user begins to feel the positive effects of sobriety and freedom. It is incredibly important to be under medical care during this time.

The second step in crack addiction treatment is physiological. Here the patient will be moved to a treatment center with other former users to help learn how to live life drug free. The patient may attend individual counseling sessions as well as group counseling sessions. In the crack addiction treatment center, patients learn how to cope with negative feelings and overcome any blocks they may have in their life. They will also learn coping strategies to overcome the urge to use again.

Many former users move from the treatment center into sober houses. These houses usually have about 4 to 6 persons dedicated to living their lives drug free. This part of crack addiction recovery helps the patient begin their new life. Most sober houses require that patients find a job or go to school. They are also required to help around the house and attend NA meetings. This helps transition the former user into a world where they can life without crack.

“We would just go out clubbing where we would drink and do a few bath salts. None of us thought there was anything wrong since they were just “Club Drugs.” It wasn’t like we were doing meth or anything like that, we just partied.

It wasn’t until I started needing these club drugs all the time and began getting sick and angry when I didn’t get them. When I started to play around with crack my friends, who were not into the clubbing scene, started to worry so they called TAP for me.

They got me into a program tailored to my addiction where I found others who had the same problem that I didn’t think I had. Thank you TAP for giving me a second chance at life!”
