Over the past decade or so, cocaine has mostly been left out of the dialogue regarding drug addiction in the country, due to the fact that opioids have wrought a tremendous amount of destruction, but although media outlets have been generally silent on cocaine addiction, it still ravages many American communities each and every day.

The issues that this country has faced with cocaine addiction has its roots in the 1970s when cocaine became the en vogue drug of use. At the time, people thought it was a miracle drug that was not addictive, and had little to no side-effects, but after a few years, they discovered the ugly truth, that cocaine is in fact incredibly addictive, and incredibly difficult to quit.

When crack-cocaine hit the streets in the 1980s, the nation was primed for a drug epidemic, the likes of which we had never seen before. Entire communities were decimated by the power of crack cocaine, losing entire generations to prison, death, and birth defects, which the media exploited for tabloid fodder.

On the back of the cocaine epidemic, the nation began its War on Drugs, which still rages to this day, and as the result of cocaine’s destructiveness, the United States created the world’s largest prison industrial complex, in order to house “criminals” who peddled and used the drug.

With all of that said, it is interesting that cocaine is no longer really included in the discussion of drug addiction in this country, as it still holds a tight grip over many an individual and community through the United States.

In fact, it is estimated that 3.5 million people used cocaine last year, which while it may not seem like a high number represents 1% of the entire United States population.

So if you think that you may have a problem with cocaine addiction and you are not sure where to turn, read on and reach out to JourneyPure Bowling Green’s cocaine rehab in Kentucky Today.

Signs and Symptoms of Cocaine Addiction

Cocaine is a highly addictive recreational stimulant that is commonly injected, inhaled, or snorted through the nose. Its dangerous effects work when it crosses the blood-brain barrier and exert a powerful response on the reward pathway of the brain. Like heroin, when cocaine is exposed to the brain, it chemically-alters the way that the brain function, which means that individuals who use the substance for even a short period of time, are at risk of falling into addiction.

Beyond that, cocaine, like that which we treat at our cocaine rehab in Kentucky, can cause a number of life-threatening side effects in individuals who use it. These side effects can occur in even the “casual” cocaine user and are not necessarily the result of years of abuse. An individual who uses cocaine once or twice could experience any of the following effects:  

  •       Rapid heartbeat (tachycardia)
  •       Aggression
  •       Increases in blood and body temperature
  •       Paranoia and psychotic thinking (losing touch with reality)
  •       Impulsive, manic behaviors and hallucinations

Cocaine addiction, like the kind we treat at our cocaine rehab in Kentucky, also raises the risk for:

  •       Heart attack
  •       Stroke
  •       Organ failure
  •       Myocardial infarction (a blockage of blood flow to the heart)
  •       Sudden cardiac death

The chances that an individual will experience one of these side-effects or conditions raises with the amount of time they spend in their cocaine addiction, so if you think that you have an issue with abusing cocaine, it is best to attempt to deal with it before serious medical complications arise.
