Some people use cocaine once and then never do it again. However, most people who even try this drug end up addicted to it.
Have you been using this drug? If so, we want you to reach out to us. The sooner you get into a treatment program, the sooner you can overcome the crack addiction.
Effects of Cocaine Addiction
Once someone becomes dependent on cocaine, it is very difficult for them to quit. The main reason for this is that when someone is dependent on the drug, their brain needs to adjust to being without it. The process of doing this can be strenuous as their brain doesn’t know how to function without cocaine.
Are you unsure of whether you are dependent upon or have an addiction to crack? If so, some of the symptoms you may have include:
- Isolating from loved ones and friends
- Severe mood swings
- Risky behaviors
- Severe talkativeness
- Weight loss (sudden and severe)
- Dilated pupils
- Constant runny nose
- Excessive sweating
- High blood pressure
- Trouble with relationships, job, or school
- Legal or financial problems due to buying or using crack
Do you or someone you know have these things going on? If so and cocaine is being used, there is likely an addiction present. You can reach out to our team to start overcoming this addiction.
Cocaine & Crack Overdose Signs
Unfortunately, there are millions of people who overdose on crack. Some of the signs of overdosing on this drug include:
- Irregular heart rate
- Severely high blood pressure
- Extreme confusion and anxiety
- Very high body temperature
- Severe nausea and/or vomiting
- Tremors and/or agitation
If you recognize any of these signs in someone else, make sure you get them medical attention immediately. They could be overdosing on cocaine. The longer someone waits to get medical attention for a crack overdose, the less likely they are to survive it.
