Crack Cocaine Abuse – Why They Don’t Stop Abusing Crack And What You Can Do About It

Crack Cocaine Abuse: Do you have a crack cocaine abuser in your life? Why do they abuse crack and never seem to get enough? Crack cocaine addiction can start even after only several ‘experimental’ inhalations from a pipe. Understanding how and why crack abuse becomes addiction is the first step to doing something to getting addiction out of your lives.

What is crack or crack cocaine?

Cocaine is a powerfully addictive stimulant drug. The powdered, hydrochloride salt form of cocaine can be snorted or dissolved in water and injected.

Crack cocaine is cocaine that has not been neutralized by an acid to make the hydrochloride salt. This form of cocaine comes in a rock crystal that can be heated and its vapors smoked. The term “crack” refers to the crackling sound heard when it is heated.*

Regardless of how cocaine is used or how frequently, a user can experience acute cardiovascular or cerebrovascular (cerebro– relating to the brain + vascular – the blood vessels that supply it) emergencies, such as a heart attack or stroke, which could result in sudden death. Cocaine-related deaths are often a result of cardiac arrest or seizure followed by respiratory arrest.

How addictive is crack as a drug?

Some users of cocaine report feelings of restlessness, irritability, and anxiety. A tolerance to the “high” may develop—many addicts report that they seek but fail to achieve as much pleasure as they did from their first exposure. Some users will increase their doses to intensify and prolong the euphoric effects. While tolerance to the high can occur, users can also become more sensitive to cocaine’s anesthetic and convulsant effects without increasing the dose taken. This increased sensitivity may explain some deaths occurring after apparently low doses of cocaine.

How To Tell If Someone Is Using Crack or Cocaine – Physical Effects

Physical effects of cocaine use include constricted blood vessels, dilated pupils, and increased temperature, heart rate, and blood pressure. The duration of cocaine’s immediate euphoric effects, which include hyper-stimulation, reduced fatigue, and mental alertness, depends on the route of administration. The faster the absorption, the more intense the high. On the other hand, the faster the absorption, the shorter the duration of action. The high from snorting may last 15 to 30 minutes, while that from smoking may last 5 to 10 minutes. Increased use can reduce the period of time a user feels high and increases the risk of addiction.

Does one have to detox from crack cocaine? Yes But Read On

Cocaine and crack cocaine detox is not only beneficial but required for a successful rehab program. BUT, crack detox doesn’t mean ‘medical detox’.

You don’t have to wait for someone to detox from crack before sending them to a Narconon Detox and Rehab program as we handle both the crack cocaine detox and rehab at the center. Both detox and rehab are done naturally, without drugs and using cutting edge nutrient discoveries that quickly end cravings, ill health and discomfort.

Nutritional / Medical Detox Facilities

For those highly intoxicated with crack and other drugs or medications, we have found the best medical detox centers that use an integrative approach to medical detoxification. Integrative Medical approaches mean the detox centers staff use a combination of many clinically superior treatments such as chelation, therapeutic touch, proper food / diet, medications, etc. This approach often triples speed of recovery and provides a comfortable withdrawal.

Why do people keep going back to crack cocaine after weeks of not using, I thought crack was really addictive?

He / she say’s they just do crack for fun, that they can quit anytime they want. How come they keep going back to using? There may be several reasons for this.

First: The crack abuser won’t accept help. This may be caused by several reasons. The major factors are covered in our first audio you listen to on our free subscription page at

Second: Crack / Cocaine is quite toxic and the after effects of the crack are effecting the crack / cocaine abusers mood, way of thinking and general health. Simply the drug abuser is feeling awful or not how they should, as so keep trying to feel ‘better’ by using cocaine.

Third: Crack / Cocaine stores long term in the body fat, organs, brain etc. As drug residues are trapped in the body, the former drug abuser won’t be quite able to fully shake the memory or experience of their past drug use without a complete and thorough and intensive sauna detoxification.

Once a person is addicted to crack, is it worth it to try and help them quit or are they ruined for good?

Yes, they should be helped, absolutely. Over 50% of our clients are suffering from crack cocaine addiction. Over 70% of our clients end their addiction problems with proper detox and rehab programs.
