Understanding Cocaine Abuse

What is Cocaine Abuse?

Cocaine is a white powdery substance that reacts with the body’s central nervous system, producing energy and euphoria. It is most commonly snorted, but can also be smoked (also known as “freebasing”) or dissolved in water and injected. Cocaine is also referred to as coke, blow or powder.

Although most people today recognize that cocaine is addictive, thousands are still drawn to it. As many as 1,800 Americans experiment with cocaine for the first time each day. Get help for a cocaine addiction now.

Detoxing from Cocaine Abuse

  • Depression and anxiety
  • Tiredness and varying levels of energy
  • Moodiness
  • Irregular sleep patterns
  • Inability to concentrate
