Drug Rehab Treatment

What is Cocaine?

Cocaine is one very powerful and highly addictive drug after methamphetamine. It causes increased dependency with feelings of euphoria. The person starts to feel lively, energetic, and confident and loses balance of mind. Prolonged use of cocaine has serious harmful effects which include anxiety, paranoia, and irritability.

Cocaine addiction is caused by sniffing, snorting or smoking cocaine. Snorting means taking cocaine through the nose. The lasting effect of cocaine depends on the method by which cocaine is taken in. Smoking gives a direct high but lasts for 5-10 minutes. If cocaine is sniffed or snorted the effect lasts for 15-30 minutes.

How is it Consumed?

The names are mostly representative of is physical appearance which is an off-white crystalline powder or chunky substance.

When in powdered form it is usually diluted with other substances. These may include local anesthetics, sugar, mannitol and inositol. This practice is done in order to increase its quantity and increase profits for the dealer. Cocaine may either be snorted, injected or smoked. When snorted the drug enters the bloodstream through the nasal tissues. Injection releases it directly into the bloodstream whereas smoking causes cocaine vapor to enter the bloodstream into the lungs.

Currently, thousands of people are suffering from cocaine addiction, and thus, treatment remains a high priority for the scientists working on the vaccine. While it may not be used as a sole treatment, a cocaine vaccine has a great potential as part of a larger treatment program in an Akron rehab center by ensuring the addicts sobriety by destroying any cocaine that enters the system even if they relapse.
