Hopefully this article will answer some of the questions you have about cocaine and the recovery program here at Refocus.
What is Cocaine?
Cocaine is traditionally made from the leaves of a South American plant called the “coca bush”.
It is a stimulant, in a sense like coffee but much more powerful. It triggers hormones and brain chemicals that elicit an incredible ‘high’ (source). Feelings of euphoria and confidence combined with lowering inhibitions make it a popular drug in the social scene.
There are three components that make up cocaine: crack, freebase and hydrochloride (source).
Cocaine can be consumed in a number of ways. These include by injection or through snorting it. Some elect to rub it into their gyms and others also smoke it.
Why is Cocaine Addictive?
Cocaine provides an incredible rush. It provides a temporary sense of deep happiness, excitement, contentment and an alert state.
People are drawn to these states psychologically as well as physically. This is the fundamental problem with cocaine use.
What are the Effects of Taking Cocaine?
On top of depression and anxiety, users report paranoia, tremors, kidney problems, sexual issues, sweating, and heart problems. Overdoses occur and can cause seizures and strokes (source).
